The Camera, Yay!
Enough of the fluff, we want to get to the heart of everyone’s favorite component: the camera. Apple usually comes in full swing every year when announcing their latest and greatest; they certainly didn't skip the meat and potatoes on this one. With impeccable improvements to Deep Fusion and night mode photography, the iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 both have dual rear cameras with wide and ultra wide angles. The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max kick it up a notch with triple rear cameras, telephoto lenses, lidar sensors for depth tracking, and 4x and 5x optical zoom for crisp and clear detail.
There’s a big focus on computational photography, as well, with this latest generation honing in on Smart HDR 3, stunning new night mode capabilities, and extremely awesome low light improvements blessed with a 7-elemented glass component. The iPhone 12 has a 12-megapixel f/1.6 main camera — the fastest aperture in any iPhone of any generation — and a 12MP ultra-wide. This will be rather remarkable when considering how well the low-light aperture was on the iPhone 11 generation.
For those needing a little pick-me-up for after all day shoots, Apple has sought to improve wireless charging capabilities on the 12th generation. This contains a trademarked “MagSafe” system with a built-in magnet to guarantee that the iPhone will properly line up with any supported MagSafe accessories. The company will also be introducing a dual wireless charger for the iPhone and Apple watch that fully utilizes this new MagSafe energy.
