Apple announced the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max

Apple announced their long awaited and leaked iPhone 12 and 12 Pro Max today. As expected, the design resembled the iPhone 5 with familiar flat sides but with the bezeless display’s iPhone’s have had since the iPhone X and of course the inclusion of 5G. The design change was likely driven by the introduction of MagSafe accessories that are dependent on the sides of the iPhone being flat since they are attached from the back, like the new cases that rely on MagSafe for attachment rather than the shape of the iPhone. As usual with the Pro tier iPhone models, their camera performance and capabilities were the highlight of their product introduction.

iPhone 12 Pro

This year’s little brother to the Pro Max is getting a little bigger, in fact the display on the 12 Pro is now the same used in the now upgraded iPhone 12. That isn’t where the similarities end, the 12 and 12 Pro are nearly similar in every aspect except in the camera capabilities.
