Apple iPhone 12 was launched at the recent event. The company releases four new models, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and smaller iPhone Mini with wider screens and metal bodies. The company also confirmed the new iPhone range to support a 5G network, which made the launch the talk of the town.
The new 5G has been tested on over 100 carriers across the world, hitting up to 4 gigabits per second download speeds in ideal conditions. – said Arun Mathias, Apple’s vice-president of wireless software
Apple iPhone 12 has a flatter, square-edged design of the old iPhone 4. The device has a thinner design, which makes it lighter and smarter, despite the 5G antenna. Apple‘s new feature also taps into the new A14 Bionic processor for photo processing, helping colors to pop even more.
iPhone 12 Pro & iPhone 12 Pro Max, both screens have the same “Super Retina XDR” technology, with HDR and Dolby Vision support. Users will be able to shoot and edit 10-bit Dolby Vision content right from the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, something no other smartphone offers.
Apple stated that it would not include wall chargers and lightning Earpods in the box because they are conscious of the phone’s environmental impact. They are also looking to reduce the usage of raw materials, allowing for a smaller retail box, meaning 70% more units can fit on a single shipping pallet and reduce carbon emissions. The company rolls back MagSafe, a unique feature of MacBook, which means a magnet system designed to hold a wireless charging pad in the right place to charge the iPhone.
The company estimates the changes will cut over 2 million metric tons of carbon emissions annually, the equivalent of removing 450,000 cars from the road each year.
Apple iPhone 12 models in this year’s lineup support 5G connectivity for faster downloads and uploads, better quality video streaming, improved gaming, and higher-definition FaceTime calls. They also offer a Smart Data Mode where when 5G isn’t active, the smartphone will switch to LTE mode to save on battery.
Apple has also made it to the list of 16 companies that won approval to manufacture products in India. Apple’s primary suppliers Foxconn Technology Group, Wistron Corp., Pegatron Corp. and Samsung Electronics Co. were among a list of global firms cleared by India’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. About 60% of the total production, or 6.5 trillion rupees, is expected to be exported in the next five years.
Apple iPhone 12 was launched at a virtual event this week. The four models, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and iPhone 12 Mini, will be available for the customers between Oct-Nov.
