The Apple iPhone 12 was announced on 13 October 2020 at an Apple Special Event alongside the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max and was released on 23 October 2020. This fourteenth-generation iPhone is the successor to 2019’s iPhone 11, but the iPhone 12 stands out as the first major redesign of Apple’s flagship iPhone since the iPhone X.
In terms of what’s under the hood, the iPhone 12 boasts the same crisp 6.1 inch, 60 Hz screen as its predecessor, improved cameras featuring better Night Mode and HDR capabilities, the addition of 5G compatibility, and Apple’s patented MagSafe technology allowing users to attach cases, chargers, and more magnetically to the iPhone 12 with ease.
Although the iPhone 12 is the natural successor to 2019’s popular iPhone 11, it’s in some ways a true successor to the iPhones 4 to 5s, which were well-known for their aluminium composite compact form. Of course, the iPhone 12 is far superior than the technology used back in 2013, but the older chassis lends itself well to the direction Apple took the iPhone 12 and its younger and older ‘brothers’, the iPhone 12 mini and the iPhone 12 Pro.
Following on last year’s trend with tougher glass on the iPhone 11, the iPhone 12 uses Ceramic Shield, a crystalline diamond glass that boasts three times superior durability to screen glass used by competitors. This glass is not impervious to scratches or dents, but it can endure much more than older iPhones from drop tests conducted during product testing.
Whether you’re using your iPhone for video production, photography, listening to your favourite tunes whilst out exercising, or many of the other functions that the iPhone 12 provides, it’s sure to see plenty of daily use. It’s great that Apple really upped their game and improved screen quality, a constant source of problems for just about any iPhone owner, as well as kept the superb water resistance used in previous models, but these relatively expensive investments need to be taken care of.
Such an intricate piece of technology, no matter how well it’s been tested, will inevitably have problems due to accidents or wear and tear. We all know that Apple doesn’t exactly provide users with very helpful or affordable repair solutions if you’ve neglected to purchase their AppleCare product insurance, so having an iPhone 12 with a cracked screen or that’s just plain inoperable is something you’ll want to get resolved quickly, professionally, and with quality repairs that can prolong the lifespan of your beloved iPhone.
