When the iPhone 12 series was released about a month ago, lots of people around the world were amazed while others didn’t feel different for a number of reasons first, the company decided to pull out its charging brick from the devices and leaving it with the lightning cable only. Then there was barely any difference in the design of the device aside from the squared side is reminiscent of the older iPhone 4 and 5 or the iPad Pro.

But despite Apple still leaving the huge notch at the top of the device, this time around, the company took a different approach to ensure that the flagship devices are up to the 2020 standard which is one thing Apple does. While the company basically doesn’t like changing its device’s design so often compared to others like Samsung or Huawei who basically switch designs every year, the iPhone 12 series took most of its predecessor’s design specs.

This time around, we get OLED on all of the iPhone 12 series which is pretty cool because, in the past, only the high-end “Pro” models usually come with the OLED display. But Apple also made four iPhones this time around with the base models being the iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 before heading upward to the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max which is the largest.

The device sports some pretty cool specifications and the new iOS 14 software upgrade which allows the device to wear a new UI look and other interesting perks.
