A14 Bionic is the fastest chip in a smartphone.
And it pushes what’s possible. Like crunching trillions of operations on the Neural Engine. Or shooting in Dolby Vision — even pro movie cameras can’t do that. It’s amazingly efficient for great battery life. And it’s ahead of its time, prepared to power pretty much anything that comes next.
Our best iPhone display ever
Vastly more contrast. Incredible colour accuracy. A huge jump in pixel density.5 Wow. Just wow. OLED delivers brighter brights, darker blacks and higher resolution for everything you look at. This is the best iPhone display we’ve ever made, and it goes all the way to the edge.
Dual‑camera system Welcome to the dark side.
Both the Wide and Ultra Wide cameras now have Night mode — and it’s better than ever at capturing incredible low‑light shots. The new Wide camera brings in 27 per cent more light. So whether you take photos by day or by moonlight, you’ll get a level of detail and colour that wasn’t possible before.
Video low lights Camera Action
How do you improve on the highest-quality video in a smartphone? Make it even better in low light — a full 27 per cent better. That means no hour is off limits for more beautifully detailed video. Then there’s Night mode Time‑lapse. Just prop up your iPhone and let the light trails begin.
MagSafe accessoriesEverything just clicks.
Snap on a new MagSafe case, wallet or both. (Fear not, the wallet is shielded so it’s safe for credit cards.)
Magnets align themselves perfectly every time for faster wireless charging.
Privacy is built in.
iPhone is designed to protect your information. Face ID data doesn’t leave your iPhone and is never backed up to iCloud or anywhere else. iOS shows you an app’s privacy practices before you download it. When you use Apple Pay, your card number isn’t shared with merchants. And the list goes on.
Reduced carbon footprint. By thinking inside the box.
iPhone 12 works with existing power adapters, EarPods and USB‑A to Lightning cables. Because there are billions of those out in the world, new ones often go unused. So we’re removing them from the box — across the entire iPhone family. This reduces carbon emissions and avoids the mining and use of precious materials. It also shrinks the package, allowing more boxes per shipment and fewer shipments overall. We’re transitioning our manufacturing partners to renewable energy as well. Altogether, this eliminates over 2 million metric tons of carbon emissions annually.
To charge your new iPhone, you can continue to use your USB‑A to Lightning cable. Or you can take advantage of fast charging with the USB‑C to Lightning cable now included in the box, which works with existing USB‑C power adapters and computer ports.
