iPhone 12 Features
One of the main features of our refurbished iPhone 12 series models is the A14 Bionic chip.
The A14 Bionic chip was first seen in the iPad Air 4. In the iPhone 12, the A14 Bionic chip means new technology that’s faster and enhanced photos, with Deep Fusion image stacking that combines multiple exposures quicker than ever to enhance lighting and colour. It also means that launching apps, such as the camera, can be a second faster.
The A14 chip provides additional processing power for real-time Dolby Vision encoding on 4K resolution videos shooting at 60 fps. It is also designed to improve performance, save on battery life and is more power-efficient. It can process 11 trillion operations per second.
Design & Appearance
The iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max appearance is distinctively different, with a flat-edged shape last seen on the iPhone 5. It’s quite a change from the rounded rectangles of the iPhone 11 series.
All models in the iPhone 12 series are built with a ceramic shield display for improved durability and 4x better drop performance. The ceramic shield is made by embedding ceramic nanocrystals into the glass through a high-temperature crystallisation process. The ceramic shield also uses dual ion exchange, which increases the size of the ions, making them more solid. The combination of these two things makes for tougher glass, which is resistant to bumps and scratches and more likely to stay in one piece if it gets damaged.
The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini are built with aerospace-grade aluminium, making them more durable and less prone to bending. On the other hand, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are built with surgical-grade stainless steel casing, making them tough and corrosion-resistant.
Face ID & Wireless Charging
All of our refurbished iPhone 12 models have Face ID and are compatible with MagSafe cases, wallets and wireless chargers.
One of the most noteworthy features of the iPhone 12 series is the introduction of 5G compatibility. Apple opted to support the full 5G experience so consumers can utilise 5G from any one of the iPhone 12 series.
Both the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini are available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.
The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are available in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.
The iPhone 12 weighs 164 grams and offers a 6.1-inch display, the same size as the iPhone 11 (but 30 grams lighter).
The iPhone 12 Mini only weighs 133 grams and offers a 5.4-inch display, making it super lightweight and easy to use with one hand.
The iPhone 12 Pro weighs 186 grams and offers a 6.1-inch display. It’s the same size as the iPhone 12 but is packed with more features and a more durable stainless steel casing.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max weighs 228 grams and offers a 6.7-inch display. The big screen, larger storage options and the capability of extra battery life make this device the perfect phone for video.
All of the models in the iPhone 12 series come with an OLED screen with a Super Retina XDR display and High Dynamic Range (HDR).
These features provide superior image quality, greater energy efficiency, a more vibrant and accurate colour display and improved contrast compared with LCD screens. This makes watching videos a more immersive and vivid experience.
The camera hardware is what differentiates the iPhone 12 Pro from the iPhone 12.
The iPhone 12 Pro features a triple-lens camera set up on the back with a telephoto lens, an ultra-wide lens, and a wide lens. The ultra-wide lens features a 120-degree field of view, making it perfect for expansive landscape shots.
However, the rear cameras differentiate between the models. The iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Mini offer a dual-camera system with a 12MP main lens and an ultra-wide lens.
All models in the iPhone 12 series feature Night Mode on both the rear and front cameras. The wide sensor automatically enables Night Mode and improves indoor and outdoor low-light shots, resulting in brighter images, natural colours, and reduced noise.
Other camera features include Smart HDR 3, new camera sensors to better balance all the elements in a scene and portrait mode shots. Plus, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max support shooting and editing photos in RAW format via a feature called Apple ProRAW.
All of the models in the iPhone 12 series offer HDR Dolby Vision video recording at up to 4K at 30fps, 10-bit HDR video recording, improved Smart HDR and Night Mode.
4K video means it records with extended dynamic range and cinematic video stabilisation. This means that your videos are smoother with better image quality. You also have the option to shoot your video in 24fps, 25fps, 30fps or 60fps.
Shooting at 30fps will give you a standard video, perfect for Instagram and YouTube. However, for maximum quality, shooting at 60fps will make the captured motion look very smooth. You can also use movie editing apps to reduce the videos down to 30fps for a dreamy-looking clip.
