Like the rest of the iPhone 12 line, it is powered by the six-core Apple A14 processor and features Ceramic Shield on the front screen and back panel for 4x improved drop performance over previous models. It supports 5G networks for improved speed (up to 4Gbps) with the ability to automatically switch to LTE as needed to conserve battery life. The wireless changing coil inside the phone includes MagSafe for magnetic alignment and attachment of chargers and accessories. The updated Lightning connector supports faster charging though USB-C.
The Pro version features a rear-facing triple camera system (vs. dual in standard models) with ultra wide, wide, and telephoto lens, along with a LiDAR sensor for recording distance. The stainless steel case is available in 4 different color finishes: Pacific blue, gold, silver, and graphite. The Super Retina XDR display features a 6.1-inch OLED screen with a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio and a resolution of 2532 x 1170 at 460ppi.
