iPhone 12: What you need to know about Apple's new 5G phone lineup

October 13, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Apple's 5G smartphone lineup is finally here.

The company announced four new iPhones in a virtual event on Tuesday — the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro, the iPhone 12 Pro Max and a new, smaller, iPhone 12 mini.

The cheapest phone in its new lineup — the iPhone 12 mini — starts at $699, while the top-of-the-line iPhone 12 Pro Max — featuring Apple's biggest ever smartphone display at 6. 7 inches — will start at $1,099.

The iPhone 12 will automatically detect when your phone doesn't need 5G and switch to the slower LTE network to save battery life, the company said.

As it does every year, Apple is enhancing the iPhone's camera systems.

The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini feature a dual-camera system on the back, with wide and ultra wide lenses, while the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Max add a telephoto lens.

The Pro Max supercharges the camera even further, with Apple naturally touting it as the "best camera ever" on an iPhone.

The last time Apple released a phone into so much economic uncertainty was the iPhone 3G in July 2008, when the United States was already in a recession and just before the financial crisis escalated with the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers.
