Tear Down between IPhone 12 and IPhone 12 Pro
iPhone 12 vs. iPhone 12 Pro: 5G
Fortunately, every new iPhone 12 model supports 5G speeds. Better yet, they all support both sub-6GHz and mmWave frequencies, meaning you’ll be equipped for the fastest 5G experiences no matter where you are. Every iPhone 12 also benefits from Smart Data Mode, which can automatically adapt between 4G and 5G based on your location to save you data and power.back to menu ↑
Processor, software and more
The latest iPhones get their power from Apple’s in-house A14 Bionic chip with a next-generation neural engine. They come with iOS 14 out of the box. There are two stereo speakers on both devices – one is on the top side of the screen and the other is on the bottom. The iPhone 12 series even supports 5G, VoLTE, GPS, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, NFC, etc.

However, the touch display acts and feels significantly different here than the IPhone to you.
iPhone 12 vs. iPhone 12 Pro: Outlook
It’s hard to go wrong with Apple’s latest iPhone lineup, as every version of the iPhone 12 gets you fast 5G performance, a zippy A14 chip and an immersive OLED screen. So it really comes down to your needs and preferences when it comes to size, price and cameras.
We expect the $699 iPhone 12 mini to be a popular pick due to its affordable price, small size and fun color options, which you can also find on the $799 iPhone 12. If you’re serious about shooting photos and videos on your phone, the $999 iPhone 12 Pro seems like a great pick. And if you want all that with the biggest iPhone screen ever, we recommend checking out the $1,099 iPhone 12 Pro.

iPhone 12 vs. iPhone 12 Pro: Displays
One of the biggest differences between the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models comes down to display size. Naturally, the iPhone 12 mini is the smallest of the bunch, with a 5.4-inch, 2340 x 1080 screen.
The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro both feature 6.1-inch, 2532 x 1170 displays, while the iPhone 12 Pro Max has the biggest iPhone display yet at a massive 6.7 inches and 2778 x 1284 resolution. Every new iPhone display is OLED, featuring Apple’s Super Retina XDR technology.
Unfortunately, the iPhone 12 Pro models don’t feature 120Hz displays for extra smooth motion as was previously rumored. You’ll still be getting a 60Hz screen on every version of the iPhone 12.back to menu ↑
iPhone 12 vs. iPhone 12 Pro: Cameras
The iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 continue to feature dual cameras in the back, including a wide angle lens and an ultra wide-angle lens. New features include Night Mode for both the front and rear cameras, as well as Night Mode Time Lapse for putting together slick nighttime videos.
If you’re serious about smartphone photography, though, you’ll want to go for the iPhone 12 Pro or Pro Max. These phones have a triple-camera array with improved lenses, as well as an advanced LiDAR sensor for better augmented reality and greater depth sensing for photos and videos.
You’ll also enjoy advanced features such as Apple ProRAW, which blends Apple’s own computational photography with the typical benefits of editing in the RAW photo format. You’ll be able to fine tune things such as white balance and color, while taking advantage of existing iPhone features such as Smart HDR. The iPhone 12 Pro is also the first phone to let you shoot and edit video using Dolby Vision HDR.
Choosing between iPhone 12 vs. iPhone 12 Pro is actually a choice between four phones. Apple’s iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini make up the lower end, with somewhat affordable prices and vibrant color options. Meanwhile the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max have more advanced cameras, bigger display options and unique color schemes. [Youtube Credit : Mrnewmobile]
