On June 29, 2007, Apple introduced its thoroughly game-changing iPhone, kicking off a booming segment of increasingly capable smartphones. And while other competitors such as Samsung have given the California-based tech giant a run for its money, Apple has managed to remain at the technological forefront of the space with a steady stream of new and improved models, the latest of which is the freshly-unveiled iPhone 12.

Comprised of the 6.1” iPhone 12 Pro and a 5.4” iPhone 12 mini—the latter of which is the world’s smallest and lightest 5G smartphone—these phones are 16% higher, 15% smaller, and 11% thinner than their predecessors, and feature a ceramic shield with four-times better drop resistance, supplemented via aluminum edged housing, dual SIM capabilities, improved water resistance, the A14 Bionic chip (the fastest smartphone cup currently the market and the same unit found in the iPhone 12 Pro), and Super Retina XDR OLED displays. Available in five color options, the iPhone 12 range is also compatible with MagSafe accessories and wireless chargers, and boast a new dual-camera system with wide and ultra-wide cameras, a low light video mode, an improved photo night mode, and is the first-ever smartphone camera to record in Dolby Vision. Pricing starts at $649 for the iPhone 12 mini and goes up to $749 for the 6.1” iPhone 12.
