Today Apple has presented many new devices at the Apple Event. This concerns the new iPhone 12 series, but also a new, cheaper one smart speaker suggested.
The Apple Event was eagerly anticipated and the wait was more than worth it. Apple has unveiled the new iPhone 12 range which is compatible with 5G for the first time.
What everyone had expected for a long time also became reality. The iPhone 12 is born. The iPhone 12 will be the first device from Apple that is compatible with 5G. In addition, Apple has also made some adjustments to the appearance of the iPhone. The standard device is thinner, narrower and lighter than the iPhone 11. In addition, the device gets a brand new image quality, which is even sharper, clearer and more detailed. In addition, there is also Ceramic Shield, the new screen. That would be four times stronger than the screen of the iPhone 11. The iPhone 12 is available in five colors.
The iPhone 12 has two cameras on the back. One is the well-known Ultra Wide camera with 12 megapixels. The second is the Wide lens, which also has 12 megapixels. Both cameras are equipped with night mode. Night mode was now also included in the front camera so you can take clear pictures yourself in low light.
Better and faster
The new iPhone series also gets a new chip, the A14 Bionic chip. This would be the fastest chip ever. The CPU is said to be 50 percent higher than all predecessors. The graphics would also be 50 percent faster. As a result, the new iPhone will be perfect for gaming. Apple teamed up with League of Legends to create a mobile version.
Wireless charging also becomes easier with the iPhone 12 because the charger now works magnetically. As a result, your devices will always lie perfectly on the charger, so that charging always takes place optimally.
The iPhone 12 will have a target price of 799 dollars (680.75 euros).
iPhone 12 Mini
In addition to the iPhone 12, a smaller brother of the iPhone 12, the iPhone Mini, was also presented. It has exactly the same features as the iPhone 12, but in a more compact version.
People with smaller hands, or who simply prefer to use a smaller smartphone, can therefore opt for the smaller version. You should therefore not lose anything in terms of specifications. According to Apple, this is the smallest smartphone with 5G on the market.
The iPhone 12 Mini got a target price of 699 dollars (595.55 euros).
iPhone 12 Pro (Max)
Of course, the iPhone 12 also exists in a Pro version. That version got four luxurious versions, Silver, Space Gray, Gold and the new Pacific Blue. The iPhone Pro got a screen of 6.1 inches. The iPhone Pro Max is a bit bigger with 6.7 inches. Both devices are therefore larger than the predecessors, the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The added value of the Pro line is again the cameras. The iPhone 12 Pro (Max) again gets three cameras on the back. The Ultra Wide camera, the Wide camera and the Telephoto camera. These cameras get a more powerful sensor, so that the light values can be adjusted perfectly. At the front there is again a solidly equipped front camera. Filming with the iPhone 12 Pro (Max) also received a strong update. In addition, Dolby Vision HDR is now used, which according to Apple can even make impressive full-length films with an iPhone 12 Pro (Max).
The Pro devices are also equipped with a LiDAR scanner. It can scan the room even in low light and create Augmented Reality features.
The iPhone 12 Pro has a target price of 999 dollars (851.15 euros). The iPhone 12 Pro Max got a price tag of $ 1,099 (936.35 euros). These are the same prices as the iPhone 11 Pro (Max).
Another piece of news presented at the Apple Event was the HomePod Mini. That is a smart speaker that must be the affordable version of the Apple HomePod. Although the HomePod Mini is very small, it can still fill an entire room with a full sound.
The new HomePod Mini can also be easily connected to your other Apple devices. Of course it also works with Siri, so you can contact the HomePod Mini with all your questions. Everyone in your family can ask questions to the HomePod Mini and the smart speaker also recognizes your voice and can therefore give personalized answers to every member of your family.
The speaker is also linked with Google Home and can therefore control your other Google Home accessories. Consider, for example, the temperature or the dimming of lights. If you have several HomePods, you can ask one HomePod via InterCom to send a message to one or more other HomePods in your house. The HomePod Mini has a target price of 99 dollars (84.36 euros).
