“Recently, Apple unveiled its new series of iPhones, the 12, 12 pro, 12 pro max and 12 mini.
In order to appeal to all economic ranges of its consumers, Apple will be charging slightly less for
the 12 and the mini, whereas the pro and pro max are the most advanced phones Apple has ever
made, and therefore come with a hefty price tag.
The pro and pro max are mostly similar but differ in screen size and camera quality. They also
come with a special sensor to help with low-light photography. The screens are now using OLED
technology rather than LED like their predecessors. This means that the devices are also around
11% thinner than before.
This new range of iPhones will be the first to function on the speedy 5G network, which CEO Tim
Cook said “will bring a new level of performance for downloads and uploads, higher quality video
streaming, more responsive gaming, real-time interactivity and so much more”.
Aesthetically, the devices have also had a re-vamp. The edges are more squared and sharper, with
flat sides instead of curved.
In an unpopular move, Apple has also announced that the phones will no longer come with a
charger or headphones in order to reduce the environmental impact. Apple are expected to suffer
a small loss in profits with the introduction of its new mini device, but it will also be a welcome
saving for the general public who want a smaller, cheaper phone.
The iPhone is the bestselling smartphone brand in the UK and the second-most popular in the
world in terms of market share.
Apple has also launched a new smart speaker, named the home pod mini. It supports a wider
range of voice commands than before, and also syncs with your home intercom system. This
speaker will be sold for £99.”
