Learn how the Apple iPhone 12 compares with its predecessor in various key areas.
If you’re considering upgrading from an iPhone 11 to Apple’s current flagship device, the iPhone 12, you may be wondering: what exactly is the difference between the two? Well, make no mistake about it: the iPhone 12 is the latest (and the greatest) from Apple—and one, if not outright, the very best phone on the market.
But, the iPhone 11 is still a great phone, so, is it really worth the extra money to make the upgrade? Keep on reading to learn how the Apple iPhone 12 compares with its predecessor in various key areas.
Screen Size And Design
Three variants of the iPhone 11 were launched: the iPhone 11 (6.1-inch display), the iPhone 11 Pro (5.8-inch display), and the iPhone 11 Pro Max (6.5-inch display). The iPhone 12, on the other hand, came out with four different models: a Mini (5.4-inch display), the 12 and 12 Pro (6.1-inch displays), and the iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7-inches).
The two phones are quite different when it comes to design and aesthetics as well. While the 11 has an LCD display, its successors comes with an OLED unit. The newer phone also features a magnetic backing, and, unlike the iPhone 11, a completely flat design with no raised buttons.
With the iPhone 12, Apple has made improvement in the camera department as well—especially with the Pro Models. While the regular 12 and 12 Mini largely stick with the camera design that the 11 has, they also feature an improved HDR mode and a Night Mode.
The upgrades are more pronounced in the Pro models. Both feature a fourth telephoto camera, and a larger image sensor. Although the iPhone 12’s camera is better in every way, the 11’s camera is nothing to scoff at. Its ultrawide-angle capabilities and amazing Night Mode can take breathtaking pictures as well.
All versions of the Apple iPhone 11 come with the company’s custom-designed A13 Bionic processor, which was the fastest one on the market until the iPhone 12 dropped. The current flagship’s A14 processor was built on a 5nm manufacturing process, has a total of six cores, and is lightning quick—noticeably faster than its predecessor.
