One size doesn’t fit all…

Apple’s taken the old route and brought back the slab design from the older generation of iPhones. They no longer have curved edges, these rectangular glass and metal sandwiches are now cramming a Super Retina XDR display with HDR and twice the level of peak brightness over the iPhone 11. The glass uses Ceramic Shield tech that is also four times more durable against drops. And finally, we also get the new A14 Bionic chip, Apple’s latest creation that runs at the heart of this thing. Built on the 5-nanometer process the A14 Bionic is touted to be nearly twice as fast as the competition and has twice the amount of cores for the Neural Engine. This also lets the computational photography spread its wings. Now you can take Night Mode shots on all the lens on the iPhone 12, including the selfie camera. And if you’re looking to tap the Nolan inside you, the camera also records in HDR and Dolby Vision HDR. You can even edit the Dolby Vision content from the native app. Lastly, the smartphones come with a new tech called MagSafe that coils a fancy magnet around the Qi charging coil at the back of the iPhone. This lets you snap any supported accessory or charger into place without fiddling with the damn thing. Apple iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini will be available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB models in blue, green, black, white, and PRODUCT(RED), starting at ₹79,900 and ₹69,900, respectively from Apple India website and through Apple Authorised Resellers. You get yours starting October 30th.
