iPhone 12 comes with 12MP ultra-wide camera + 12MP wide-angle lens. The camera of the iPhone 12 will be able to click amazing pictures in low light as well. The company has improved the Night mode too. Night mode now comes in both front and rear cameras across all iPhone 12 models.
The Apple Event also brought to us in the iPhone 12 series, Cupertino’s first 5G phones, coming at least a couple of years after Samsung launched its first device running on the next generation telecom technology. Apple might be a little behind with Motorola, Google, Samsung and others to have already rolled out their models that support 5G. However, considering only about 6% of the consumers would look for 5G as a prime criterion when buying a new phone. But then Apple is going the whole hog with 5G, with all the four phones featuring the new technology that will run on over 100 networks across the world, India not included.
