5G speed OMGGGGG.

5G speed OMGGGGG.

5G on iPhone is superfast. So you can download movies on the fly. Stream higher-quality video. Or FaceTime in HD over cellular. With lots less lag. And you can do it in more places, because iPhone 12 has the broadest 5G coverage worldwide.5

iPhone makes the most of 5G

5G on iPhone is superfast. So you can download movies on the fly. Stream higher-quality video. Or FaceTime in HD over cellular. With lots less lag. And you can do it in more places, because iPhone 12 has the broadest 5G coverage worldwide.5

iPhone makes the most of 5G

We engineered custom antennas and radio components for high sensitivity and incredible efficiency. Then we gave iPhone 12 the most 5G bands of any smartphone, so you’ll get 5G in more places.

We looked at our entire software stack — from applications to system level frameworks — and optimized it to take advantage of 5G. For example, many apps will benefit from 5G without using additional power.

Conserves battery life with Smart Data mode

5G on iPhone isn’t just faster, it’s smarter, too. When your iPhone doesn’t need 5G speeds, like when it’s making updates in the background, it automatically uses LTE to save battery life. But as soon as speed does matter — if you’re downloading a season of your favorite show — iPhone 12 jumps to 5G. Of course, you can also choose to use 5G whenever it’s available.

This is just
the beginning

We also teamed up with carriers and performed extensive engineering and testing to optimize 5G networks. So far, we’ve seen amazing real-world speeds, along with improved call quality, battery life, and coverage around the world. This is 5G, iPhone style.

Vastly more contrast. Incredible color accuracy.
A huge jump in pixel density.6
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.

Our best iPhone display ever

1200 nits HDR brightness

2,000,000:1
contrast ratio

Unlike LCDs that use a backlight to illuminate all the pixels at once, OLED pixels each emit their own light. They can be completely turned off to produce true blacks, or light up all the way to 1200 nits for HDR content. That’s how you get a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio. The difference is dramatic.

Brighter brights, darker blacks

Texts and emails are noticeably sharper. All your photos and videos — even old favorites — will look more true to life than ever. And things like fire explosions and intergalactic battles in movies are hyperdetailed, superbright, and deeply dark in all the right places.

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 percent more light. So whether you take photos by day or by moonlight, you’ll get a level of detail and color that wasn’t possible before.

Evenings have entered the picture.

Night mode

senses when light is low and kicks in automatically, maintaining clarity while capturing beautiful vibrant color. All you have to do is start snapping.

Photos that were once hard to capture — like a dramatic moonlit scene — now come out sharper than ever.

Deep Fusion,

in mid to low light, analyzes multiple exposures to maximize detail. Check out the texture in the wood, fabric, and crystal. And the Ultra Wide gets you a heroic perspective.

Automatic magic.

Smart HDR 3

balances the elements in a shot, bringing out detail in the subject and trees while retaining the rich color of the sky — even at high noon.

Beyond faces, Smart HDR 3 uses machine learning to recognize scenes, then adjusts sharpness,
color, and white balance where needed.

Even in bright light, Smart HDR 3 is amazing at capturing texture, skin tone, color saturation, and individual details that make
photos feel true to life.

Face it. Nothing beats Portrait mode.

Portrait mode

is even better at artfully blurring the background to put all the focus on your subject. Lovely, isn’t it?

Take great photos even further by choosing from
six creative lighting effects, like High‑Key Light Mono, Natural Light, and Studio Light.

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.

We reduced our carbon footprint. By thinking inside the box.

iPhone 12 works with existing power adapters, EarPods with Lightning Connector, 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.

Carbon savings equal to 450,000 fewer cars on the road per year
