Apple has released four new iPhones that support 5G, but many consumers are still thinking about whether they should upgrade their old iPhones or switch to iPhones from other phones.

Apple has released four new iPhones that support 5G, but many consumers are still thinking; about whether to upgrade their old iPhones, or Transfer from other mobile phones to iPhone. Before you make a decision, let’s take a look at the main differences between iPhone 11 and 12.

differences between iPhone 12 and 11:The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models came out on October 23. They are more powerful, faster, and more stylish than last year’s iPhone version. The iPhon 12 has also improved the camera for taking pictures and videos.

The other two iPhone Mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be released in November.

So what are the main differences between iPhone 11 and 12?

1. Screen resolution and fragility

Both phones have the same size (6.1 inches) screen; but the iPhone 12 has a higher screen resolution and stronger glass.

iPhone 11 has an LCD “liquid crystal display” panel with a resolution of 1792 x 828 pixels; resulting in 326 pixels per inch. This is significantly lower than the resolution of 458 pixels per inch on the iPhone 12.

The iPhone 12 has a resolution of 2532 x 1170 pixels and uses OLED technology. This means that you can get wider dynamic range, higher contrast, and HDR support in addition to brighter colors and deeper black on the iPhone 12.

The iPhone 12 display is protected by Ceramic Shield technology, so it is not easy to damage the screen when dropped.

2. Processor

The iPhone 12 also has a high-speed chip. The iPhone 12 has an A14 Bionic processor, and the iPhone 11 has an A13 Bionic processor.

Apple calls the A14 “the fastest chip in a smartphone.”

iPhone 12 also has the latest neural engine (neural engine), which can improve machine learning. Apple said that the new 16-core neural engine has improved performance by 80% compared to the previous generation.

On October 13, 2020, Apple CEO holds a new version of iPhone 12 Pro. 

3. Battery performance

The following are iPhone 11 and 12 battery performance data:

iPhone 11

Video playback: up to 17 hours

Video playback (streaming): up to 10 hours

Audio playback: up to 65 hours

iPhone 12

Video playback: up to 17 hours

Video playback (streaming): up to 11 hours

Audio playback: up to 65 hours

4. Is 5G technology really needed?

Support for 5G is the biggest selling point of the four iPhone 12s. For example, Apple CEO Tim Cook said at the iPhone 12 conference on October 13 that the iPhone has entered a new era. With 5G technology, you can instantly download movies, stream higher quality videos, or play FaceTime in HD format. The time delay is greatly reduced.

At present, there is a lot of debate about the importance of 5G, but it ultimately boils down to the 5G services provided by operators in your area. If 5G is available in your area, iPhone 12 will support it; but if not, you will use LTE.

“USA Today” reported that in the test, as far as Verizon is concerned, 5G is currently uneven, and when AT&T and T-Mobile are available, its speed is only slightly faster than the current 4G. Analysts expect that 5G will begin to have an impact in the next two years, so waiting for the next iPhone version may also be a reasonable choice.

5. Camera

Both iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 are equipped with dual camera arrays on the back; and have 12MP wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle lenses. Compared with the ƒ/1.8 aperture in the iPhone 11, the iPhone 12; has an upgraded wide-angle lens with a ƒ/1.6 aperture.

This means that more light can enter the camera, thereby improving low-light photography and video performance. In fact, Apple says that the new widescreen camera provides 27% more light than the iPhone 11 camera.

Utilizing the functions of A14 and the new neural engine, iPhone 12 also supports night mode and Deep Fusion on the ultra-wide-angle lens for the first time.

6. The difference between iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro

The most different from the iPhone 12 is that the iPhone 12 Pro has three lens settings, including ultra, wide-angle and telephoto lenses. When using portrait mode, you will also get night mode support, which is provided by the new iPhone 12 Pro’s dedicated LiDAR scanner.

iPhone 12 Pro is the first mobile phone that can directly record and edit Dolby Vision HDR content. Users can record on the iPhone 12 Pro and then perform color adjustments. The relevant settings will be retained and can continue to work on Final Cut Pro X on the desktop, which is a one-stop experience.

At the same time, iPhone 12 Pro also supports RAW photo shooting, which will allow iPhone photographers to better control their images and use new post-processing tools.

7. Price

The iPhone starts at $799, and the specific price varies from carrier to carrier: it starts at $829 (for Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T is $799), and it has 64GB of storage space. You can upgrade to the 128GB configuration for $879 (Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T is $849), or the 256GB model for $979 (Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T is $949).

On the other hand, the iPhone 12 Pro price: US$999 (128GB storage space), US$1,099 (256GB storage space) and US$1299 (512GB storage space).

The iPhone 11 now starts at $599 (64GB), $649 (128GB) or $749 (256GB).
