Camera comparison: iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro
Apple released the iPhone 12 Pro last week, which will be sold with the iPhone 12, 12 mini and 12 Pro Max. Pro Max has the best camera in its class, but since it is not yet on the market, we think we should take a look at the camera improvements introduced in the iPhone 12 Pro and see how the camera quality compares with the iPhone 11 Pro.
In the week or so since the launch, we will continue to learn more about the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. It is worth noting that through FCC documents, it was discovered that the iPhone 12 model may have a hidden reverse charging function for future Apple accessories. This has led people to speculate that it may be possible to charge the new AirPods case that supports MagSafe, or even Apple Rumors. Simply place the AirTag item tracker on the back of the iPhone to tag it.
We also learned that Personal Hotspot uses faster 5GHz Wi-Fi on the iPhone 12 model by default. The combination of iPhone 12 models that support high-speed 5G networks and the higher maximum throughput of 5GHz Wi-Fi paves the way for faster personal hotspots. There is a new “Maximize Compatibility” switch that can revert to 2.4GHz Wi-Fi on the previous iPhone. Personal Hotspot allows iPhone’s cellular data connection to be shared with other devices (such as Mac) via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or Lightning.
