    Product Description

    iPhone 12 has it all. 5G on iPhone is super fast, so you can download movies on the fly and stream high-quality video. You can do it in more places, because iPhone 12 has 5G coverage worldwide. OLED delivers brighter brights, darker blacks, and higher resolution for everything you look at. Both the Wide and Ultra Wide cameras now have Night mode to capture incredible low-light shots. Night mode senses when light is low and kicks in automatically, maintaining clarity while capturing beautiful vibrant color. All you have to do is start snapping. Deep Fusion, in mid to low light, analyzes multiple exposures to maximize detail. Check out the texture in the wood, fabric, and crystal. And the Ultra Wide gets you a heroic perspective. Smart HDR 3 balances the elements in a shot, bringing out detail in the subject and trees while retaining the rich color of the sky — even at high noon. Beyond faces, Smart HDR 3 uses machine learning to recognize scenes, then adjusts sharpness, color, and white balance where needed. Even in bright light, Smart HDR 3 is amazing at capturing texture, skin tone, color saturation, and individual details that make photos feel TRUE to life. Portrait mode artfully blurs the background to put all the focus on your subject. Then there’s Night mode Time-lapse. Just prop up your iPhone and let the light trails begin. Now you can record 4K HDR video with Dolby Vision; edit in Photos or iMovie. Then zap it to your TV using AirPlay to see all that color and detail. It’s a start-to-finish cinematic experience. iOS 14 is packed with shortcuts that get you just what you want, right when you want it. iPhone is designed to protect your information. Face ID data doesn’t leave your iPhone and is never backed up to iCloud or anywhere else. iOS shows you an app’s privacy practices before you download it. When you use Apple Pay, your card number isn’t shared with merchants. And the list goes on. To charge your new iPhone, you can continue to use your USB‑A to Lightning cable. Or you can take advantage of fast charging with the USB‑C to Lightning cable now included in the box, which works with existing USB‑C power adapters and computer ports.
