iPhone 12 VS iPhone 11, What has Changed?

The iPhone 12 went on sale with today, and long lines started forming outside Apple stores early in the morning. The two biggest highlights of this year's iPhone 12 are 5G and the A14 chip, and the other features haven't changed much compared to the iPhone 11, plus the price drop of the iPhone 11, many users are starting to struggle with whether to choose the iPhone 11 or iPhone 12. Of course if you have enough funds you can choose the iPhone 12 pro without hesitation, it must be the best choice.

In this article, we'll compare the differences between the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 12.

Main Performance

5G speed

At the launch Cook said that the iPhone 12 is the first Apple phone to support 5G networks and will start a new era of iPhones in 2020, with upload and download speeds more than twice as fast as the iPhone 11. The 5G network-enabled iPhone 12 offers faster speeds and lower latency, eliminating the need for frequent Wi-Fi connections. built-in Smart Data Mode automatically selects a 5G connection when you have a strong 5G signal or need a faster network.
No longer includes a power adapter or EarPods

A14 Bionic

A14 Bionic is the fastest chip in a smartphone. And it pushes what’s possible. Like crunching trillions of operations on the Neural Engine. The A14 bionic chip was actually unveiled at Apple's fall event last month, with 11.8 billion transistors, 40 percent more than the iPhone 11, featuring a 6-core CPU and 4-core GPU. Apple says it's 50% faster than other brands and is the most powerful Apple phone available.

At the launch, Apple also used a large 3D game to test the performance of the A14 chip, allowing users to play the game, almost no latency, but also let players feel an unprecedented sense of smooth experience.

Battery capacity reduction


The iPhone 12 is 11 percent lighter than the iPhone 11, 15% percent smaller overall and 16% thinner. The bezels pay homage to the iPhone 4, with the same brick three-dimensional bezels as rumored. The iPhone 12 comes in five variants of blue, green, black, white, and red. The iPhone 11, on the other hand, comes with six colors - purple, white, green, yellow, black, and red.

In all iPhones (except the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5), Apple has adopted a very rounded bezel shape that fits in the palm of any hand and looks so good that most phones have rounded edges.

Face ID


With the new MagSafe wireless charging feature, iPhone 12 will be able to charge up to 15W, twice as fast as before. Users can use the MagSafe charging cable to hold the phone firmly in place so it won't fall down easily, and the charging part of iPhone 12 will feature NFC for enhanced connectivity. With the MagSafe charging cable attached, the iPhone unit can automatically enter charging mode.
