iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are here with CNET, marking the beginning of a new generation of Apple. Support for 5G, new hardware design and camera improvements are important steps taken from the iPhone X generation devices. This is nothing new. Apple’s iPhone 4 launched in 2010 and the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus released in 2014 have done similar things.
However, the iPhone 12 generation has a big difference. This is the first time there are four new iPhones at the same time. If you want to get smaller and benefit from a lower price, you can use Mini. If you want the largest iPhone and the latest iPhone camera, please purchase Pro Max. But this makes the 12 and 12 Pro similar (like basically the same phone). That is not necessarily a bad thing.
iPhone 12 and 12 Pro capture excellent photos and videos
The camera received hardware, software, and processing upgrades. Although other phones may have excellent camera features that these iPhones lack (such as the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s 100x space zoom), the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro can capture excellent photos and videos and always provide excellent images, according to the article by CNET. This is an example of shooting in a variety of different environments and lighting.

The amount of detail the iPhone 12 Pro can capture in this photo is impressive.
iPhone 12 can capture the texture of light-colored bricks and the gloss of black signs.
This scene does show the dynamic range of the iPhone 12.
Except for the telephoto camera and lidar, the camera of the iPhone 12 is exactly the same as another. But these phones don’t just rely on hardware to take high-quality photos and videos. Apple’s new A14 Bionic chip, as well as software and machine learning features, have improved all functions.
For example, the ultra-wide-angle cameras of the 12 and 12 Pro have the same hardware as last year’s 11 and 11 Pro. But the 12 and 12 Pro have software to correct lens distortion.
Apple has added software to reduce the distortion of ultra-wide-angle cameras. Fortunately, the dramatic perspective of this photo taken with the iPhone 12 remains unchanged.
The ultra-wide-angle camera on the both phones now supports night mode.
iPhone 12 Pro can perfectly present this scene without too much light.
In terms of video, especially on the iPhone 12 Pro, its focus is excellent, and it can track me even when shooting at night. That’s because of the lidar sensor.
