The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max share many of the major features highlighting the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini, there are several key differences, from the number of camera lenses on the Pro models to the materials Apple uses.
iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max price and availability
Apple kept the prices the same from the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max — good news considering the number of features i packs into the new phones. The iPhone 12 Pro will cost $999(N380,616) while the iPhone 12 Pro Max goes for $1,099(N418,719). You will have to wait longer to get your hands on an iPhone 12 Pro Max, however. Pre-orders on the larger of Apple’s two Pro models won’t begin until Nov. 6, with the phone shipping on Nov. 13. The iPhone 12 Pro will already be in stores by then, with sales set to begin on Oct. 23. You can place pre-orders for the iPhone 12 Pro on Oct. 16.
This year’s Pro models feature bigger screens than before, with the iPhone 12 Pro growing to 6.1 inches, up from 5.8 inches on the iPhone 11 Pro. (It also happens to be the same screen size as the iPhone 12.) The iPhone 12 Pro Max features the biggest screen ever on an iPhone at 6.7 inches.
These screens are Super Retina XDR displays, with the iPhone 12 Pro Max in particular delivering the highest resolution ever for an iPhone at 2778 x 1284. The iPhone 12 Pro features a comparatively more modest 2532 x 1170 resolution. As with previous Pro models, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max both boast IP68 water resistance, meaning you can drop them in up to 6 meters of water for half-an-hour without any issue.
iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max cameras
The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max would seem to have the same camera setup — three rear lenses aided by a LiDAR sensor. But even though each phone has a wide, ultrawide and telephoto lens, Apple has has changed the optics ever so slightly.
On the iPhone 12 Pro, the main camera now features an f/1.6 aperture, which should let in more light when shooting photos or video. (Apple promises a 27% improvement.) The iPhone 12 Pro Max has the same 12MP camera with the same aperture, but the sensor itself is larger, meaning an even bigger improvement for low-light photos.
Both phones have the same 12MP ultrawide angle lens with an f/2.4 aperture and a 120-degree field of view. But the telephoto lenses are different — the iPhone 12 Pro has an f/2.0 aperture while the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s is f/2.2. More to the point, they have different focal lengths — 52mm for the iPhone 12 Pro and 65mm for the iPhone 12 Pro Max. That leads to different zoom capabilities, with the iPhone 12 Pro offering a 4x optical range to the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s 5x range.
As for the LiDAR sensor, it measures light distance and computes a scene’s pixel depth. That improves focus times and makes it easier to stay in focus in low-light. It also enables features like Night mode portrait shots.
On the iPhone 12 Pro models, you be able to take Night mode shots with the ultrawide and TrueDepth lenses as well as the main camera and telephoto lens. A new Night mode time-lapse feature permits longer exposure times and brighter frames when you take time-lapse photos in low light on a tripod. Smart HDR 3 continues to bring out the details in faces even when the subject of your photo is backlit.
