What to Expect From the iPhone 12
After releasing the iPhone XR and iPhone 11 in 2018 and 2019 — which went on to become the two most-shipped smartphones in the world last year — Apple is continuing its quest to release better, faster devices. Though early reports slated the release of the iPhone 12 to hit sometime in September, production delays pushed the release back to October 2020 for the standard iPhone 12. It's probably safe to assume that all versions of the iPhone 12 will be released around the same time, as was the case for Apple's iPhone 11 line, but there is no confirmation either way.

With the new phone's anticipated release only weeks away, there are dozens of suspected leaks, rumors and educated guesses about what Apple's 2020 variation could look and perform like. No charging adapter? Brand new color lineups? Will there be two or three cameras? And what exactly is an A14 Bionic processing chip? Read on to learn more about these suspicions — and more — as we dive into everything we know about the upcoming iPhone 12.
According to many reports, we can also expect a price increase compared to previous iPhone releases, likely due to the new 5G-enabling components — which require significant changes to the device's motherboard design — and ultra-fast A14 Bionic processing.
There is no definite cost listed yet, but one popular pricing model prediction for brand new devices include:
There is no word yet on whether Apple plans to expand the iPhone 12 line with LTE versions, but if so, they will likely cost less than the above variations.
Rumors suggest changes to nearly every part of the device — some minor and some more significant — including performance and display, camera and video capabilities, battery life, design and security.
What We Can Guess
With the basic iOS and Apple features in mind, what else can we expect from the new lineup? Rumors suggest changes to nearly every part of the device — some minor and some more significant — including performance and display, camera and video capabilities, battery life, design and security. Experts also conclude users will have a choice between four different variations, including the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Though not confirmed, these are the names experts predict based on the iPhone 11's available versions.
• A14 Bionic processor
• OLED display
• RAM and storage
• 5G capabilities
• Resolution and touch display
• Faster Wi-Fi
Performance & Display
Some of the biggest changes to the iPhone 12 will come from excelled performance and display, including some redesign to the home screen, usability updates, lightning-fast 5G service and an overall CPU and GPU boost. Here's what we anticipate for each variation of Apple's next release:
iOS 14 Features
All 12 variations will operate via iOS 14, which will bring a redesigned home screen and updates to general usability. Apple has only provided a preview of what's to come from their newest operating system, but they are a strong indication that the iPhone 12 will be more efficient and useful than ever before.
Some of the most significant improvements and changes you can expect to see with iOS 14 include:
When it comes to choosing a new cell phone, camera quality and video recording capabilities have become nearly as important as battery life and usability.
CAMERA AND VIDEO
Camera & Video
When it comes to choosing a new cell phone, camera quality and video recording capabilities have become nearly as important as battery life and usability. In 2017, smartphone users took nearly 1.2 trillion pictures with their phones. iPhone loyalists have always loved Apple's crisp, vivid images and smooth video clips. The iPhone 12 will be no exception, though there will be some slight variations among each of the newly released models.
For the base model and the iPhone 12 Max, expect two rear cameras, while the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will have three with a LiDAR sensor. LiDAR enables phones to focus better and more clearly, leading to superior photos, particularly in portrait mode. Compared to previous six-lens releases, expect a seven-part camera lens for the main iPhone 12 camera, which will minimize picture distortion. Users will also enjoy a wide-angle and telephoto lens on the 12 Pro models. Built-in Sensor-Shift will help stabilize your photos by detecting when your phone moves and adjusting the lens in the opposite direction. For video recording, the Pro and Pro Max will shoot in 4K at 120 or 240 fps.
For even better photos, experts suggest the iPhone 12 Pro will perform better than ever in low-light conditions, thanks to Smart HDR, and will have a 3x optical zoom — a step up from the iPhone 11.
New & Returning Features
While faster-than-ever 5G and the A14 Bionic processor are the two most significant changes to the upcoming iPhone, they aren't the only ones. Some possible additional changes and improvements to be aware of include:
Assuming your smartphone uses a decent quality battery — which the iPhone 12 undoubtedly will — then the higher the mAh rating, the more battery power and battery space available.
Smartphone battery life is measured in milliampere-hours, known as the mAh rating. Assuming your smartphone uses a decent quality battery — which the iPhone 12 undoubtedly will — then the higher the mAh rating, the more battery power and battery space available. For the iPhone 12, users should expect a 2,227 mAh rating, with a 2,775 mAh for the Max and Pro and a 3,687 mAH rating for the Pro Max.
New releases are not expected to include a charging adapter. While this is a great way to reduce waste and may not be a significant concern for current iPhone users who already have a charging adapter, it is an additional expense worth noting for non-iPhone users looking to jump on the Apple bandwagon for the iPhone 12 release.
We also anticipate each iPhone 12 model to come with the standard lightning port, rather than a USB-C port, like we have seen with previous Apple phone releases.
Design & Security
Smartphone features are for more than entertainment and fun iPhone text tricks — they can also keep you safe and secure your personal information with features like these:
