iPhone 12 is the latest in Apple iPhone technology, released in late 2020. It comes in 4 models: iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Each of the models has different specifications offered at different price points. That means you’ll be able to find a new iPhone 12 handset to suit your budget! And because all of them are 5G-capable and run on the ultra-fast Apple A14 Bionic chip, they’re all incredibly powerful, ready to connect to the fastest mobile network.
But which of the latest iPhone models is best for you? Let’s compare each handset's specs.
Comparing the Specs of Apple’s Latest iPhone 12 Models
From Mini to Max, how do you select the model that's the best fit for you? Every iPhone 12 model has a Super Retina XDR (OLED) display and an identical A14 Bionic processor. They all sport the same new protective Ceramic Shield glass coating. From Face ID to Magsafe accessory compatibility, the list of similarities between all 4 is long. So, what should you look at? If it’s budget-friendly? If it’s jumbo-sized?
Everyone is different and will have different needs. But our guide's here to help!
1. The Phone for All: iPhone 12
The base model, iPhone 12, is a fantastic smartphone with many features and really great specs for its price.
Weighing in at 164g, iPhone 12 has the same 6.1-inch screen as iPhone 12 Pro. Available in 3 storage options - 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, it also has a 2815mAh battery that will last you the entire day. It's no doubt a powerful handset that's built to last. The only thing missing is the dedicated telephoto lens, which is built into iPhone 12 Pro. It also comes in 6 fancy colours.

2. Fits in My Hand: iPhone 12 Mini
For the first time, Apple released a miniature version for its new iPhone series, iPhone 12 Mini. A stand-out mobile phone for anyone who wants a handset which fits comfortably in the palm, the Mini has almost all the same features as iPhone 12, only in a more compact design. Designed with a 5.4-inch display, the 135g iPhone 12 Mini even has the same camera setup as iPhone 12 - 12MP Ultrawide, 12MP Wide, and 12MP selfie camera. Its body has an IP68 rating too, which means it's resistant to dust and water for up to 6m and 30 minutes! At M1, you’ll be able to get your hands on the 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB iPhone 12 Mini in 6 different colours for as low as $0 upfront on the Bespoke Flexi Plan.
3. If Less is a No-Go, Choose iPhone 12 Pro
Neither too big nor too small, iPhone 12 Pro includes a few nice upgrades. It comes in 4 premium, chic colours - Gold, Graphite, Pacific Blue, and Silver. It also comes with larger storage space - 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB so you can store all those pictures you took using the extra 2x optical zoom rear camera. That's not all! iPhone 12 Pro also adds a touch of magic with its LiDAR scanner, which takes the experience of taking portraits in Night Mode to the next level.
4. Max it Out with iPhone 12 Pro Max
The top-tier iPhone 12 Pro Max delivers a fantastic experience. With a massive 6.7-inch screen and incredible OLED picture quality, it's perfect for playing movies and TV shows in high definition. Storage space options range from 128GB to 512GB, so you can download as many apps as you need, and take as many pictures as you want, without running out of memory! Wondering what its defining feature is? That'll probably have to be its camera setup. With an image sensor that’s bigger than the other models, its main camera is just...different.

Front camera: 12MP
– 12MP Ultrawide; 12MP Wide; 12MP Telephoto
