In recent years, Apple started to introduce more color options for its iPhones. This is a good thing as it helped to create a more colorful lineup, but unfortunately there seems to be some downsides to choosing some of these brighter colors. This is because according to a report from Svetapple.sk, the colors are fading.
When you buy something online, you usually expect that when you do receive it, you get what you were supposed to. Unfortunately for a woman in China named Liu, it seems that the $1,500 iPhone 12 Pro Max she had ordered online turned out to be very different, where she ended up receiving a box of apple flavored yogurt instead.
Want to take RAW photos on your iPhone? Maybe you own an iPhone 12, or maybe you own an older iPhone, but don’t worry as this guide will show you how to capture photos in RAW.
When the initial round of hands-on reviews for the iPhone 12 were making their rounds, many had praised the smaller iPhone 12 mini. This was surprising as we expected that the iPhone 12 Pro Max would be more favored, but the small form factor turned out to be a pleasant surprise for users who could finally use their phones one-handed again.
Earlier in January, it was reported that there could be a potential issue of placing the iPhone 12 and its MagSafe charging system near medical devices like pacemakers. This is due to the use of additional magnets which could interfere with medical equipment. Apple recently updated its support document suggesting the same thing.
Similar to some of Apple’s more recent iPhones, the iPhone 12 lineup comes with dual SIM support. However, early on it was discovered that dual SIM support did not extend to 5G. This meant that if you wanted to use 5G, users would have to disable one of the SIM card slots, which was kind of annoying and limiting.
What does the Samsung Galaxy S21 and the iPhone 12 have in common? Both are smartphones priced in the $1,000 range, and both are phones you really, really do not want to drop. However, if you were to drop them, which phone do you think would be able to withstand the impact?
For those who might be unfamiliar, 5G is not equal. There currently exists two types of 5G – sub-6GHz and mmWave. The former offers wider coverage, while the latter has a shorter range but offers faster speeds. For those who might happen to live in urban areas that are within mmWave range, you might be interested in Verizon’s latest plans.
A couple of weeks ago, it was reported that a study had suggested that Apple’s iPhone 12 with the addition of the MagSafe magnets had the potential to interfere with medical implants such as pacemakers. The company had previously had a support document in which it was suggested that MagSafe is not expected to “pose a greater risk of interference”.
Apart from the differences in size, one of the ways Apple has set the iPhone 12 models apart from one another is through its cameras. Each iPhone 12 model has a slightly different camera setup from the other, with the largest and most expensive iPhone 12 Pro Max having the “best” camera tech out of the lot.
Apple’s iPhone 12 mini looked like it might have had the potential to be a hit at the start. Many initial reviews and hands-on praised the phone for its small form factor, which they said made it easier to hold. Its slightly more affordable price tag was also something that many had said was a good thing.
Our phones contain magnets, but with the iPhone 12 series, Apple has introduced more magnets thanks to the (re)introduction of MagSafe. Some have wondered that with these additional magnets, could it interfere with other devices, like credit cards, access cards, as well as medical devices like pacemakers.
One of the new hardware features that Apple introduced with the iPhone 12 is a LiDAR scanner. This is meant to help with augmented reality as well as helping the iPhone’s camera better autofocus especially in dimly-lit environments. It’s not necessarily a feature that we can “feel”, but TikTok is hoping to change that.
When Apple announced the iPhone 12 lineup, many initial reviews praised the iPhone 12 mini with its more manageable 5.4-inch display. It was also relatively affordable compared to the other models and it felt like maybe Apple would have another hit on their hands, but it turns out that isn’t the case.
During Apple’s iPhone 12 presentation, they brought Verizon’s CEO Hans Vestberg onto stage where they highlighted 5G and how iPhone 12 users could benefit from it. This is more or less a given, considering that 5G will indeed offer up faster speeds compared to previous technologies like 4G, but it seems that in the real-world, that isn’t necessarily the case.
When Apple’s iPhone 12 was officially announced and it was confirmed that the handset would come without a charger, many were quick to mock the company, such as Samsung who posted an ad saying, “Your #Galaxy does give you what you are looking for. From the most basic as a charger, to the best camera, battery, performance, memory and even 120Hz screen.”
With the launch of the iPhone 12, it marks Apple’s foray into the 5G smartphone market. The company can sort of be thought of being “late” to the game given that we’ve seen 5G smartphones launch back in 2019, but it turns out that maybe it did not matter because the iPhone 12 has managed to become the top 5G smartphone.
One of the reasons why some professional photographers love capturing images in the RAW format is because it gives them more flexibility when it comes to making edits. This is versus other formats like JPEG which might have already been processed and compressed, thus already applying certain effects that you might not want.
The Apple 1 is one of the rarest computers in existence, simply because it isn’t being made anymore. However, it holds historical value as it marks the very early days of Apple. Those who own existing units can actually sell them for quite a bit of money, where one actually sold close to $1 million at an auction.
In the past couple of years, we’ve seen an interesting shift in the smartphone market, where customers are starting to prefer mid-range phones. It is possible that this is due to the fact that many smartphone companies are pricing their flagships a bit too outrageously, which explains why devices like the iPhone XR and the iPhone 11 sold way more than its more expensive siblings.
