    The differences between the "regular" iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro are subtle, but important. Since they can be hard to tell apart I put together this video to make it as easy as possible to understand not only the differences but, more importantly, how they may impact your life (and happiness with them)!

Wait how does Pro last longer in terms of battery life? Don't they both the same size battery? If anything Pro should last less as it has extra camera and ram etc.

Apple is selling 256 512 gb versions because there are some people downloading 300 pointless apps + 20+ games My iphone 6s plus 64 Gb version after 5 years of usage has over 34Gb free space having abt 40 apps, 2 games and over 40 Gb photos+ videos into iCloud.

I think I'll be going with the 12 Pro 128 GB Pacific Blue. I have been debating between the 12 and 12 Pro, but the feature for me is the 128 GB over 64 GB. When upgrading to 128 GB with the 12, you are only saving $150 off the price of the 12 Pro. And for me, the extra camera, LiDAR, Pro RAW, and better video are enough to me in paying that extra $150. I am in it for the long run and am planning on keeping my purchase for several years (heck, I'm upgrading from a first gen SE), and I can justify paying the difference....even though $1000 is no small purchase.

I think I'll be going with the 12 Pro 128 GB Pacific Blue. I've been debating between 12 and 12 Pro, but I am wanting 128 GB. By the time I boost up to 128 with the 12 I will only be $150 less than the 12 Pro, and I think the extra camera, LiDAR, Pro Raw, and better video will make up for the price difference for me.

I was really sold on the 12, but I actually returned it and bought the pro. The pro is such a beautiful and premium device vs what the 12 felt like. Just my 2c

I currently have a XS, with two cameras - wide & telephoto. A quick ‘Smart Album’ in Photos of images taken with the telephoto lens tells me that I used it for about 30% of my total XS shots, so not having it would (as Chris says) be an impact for me.

As a student, with some multimedia requirements for my degree, I was lucky enough to handle both phones in a store last weekend, and compared them to my iPhone XR, to make a choice. If I owned my XR (I’ve leased it and contract is up), I would keep it for another year at least, because no real visual difference between it and the 12, other than the camera update, when looking at the screen since the IOS 14 update - and I used the XR cameras (and the 64 gig storage was fine), to make several videos for Uni this year, plus tonnes of productivity, I have been more than happy with it. But then when you compare the 12 and the 12pro - I agree, hold both in your hand and click on the apps most important to you, like perhaps the camera: the Pro has more setting options, and more detail in the image (extra Ram, extra battery, LiDar). But if you’re a point and shoot kind of person, social media scroller, normal productivity, these things probably won’t matter to the average person. My partner would freak out at the extra settings😂, he’s definitely the point and shoot (photograph) guy. If you know what you’re doing, you’ll appreciate the extra capability, otherwise Keep it Simple (KISS).

@C Hux yes, on paper, definitely spec upgrades, but scrolling through each phone side by side to physically ‘see’ the difference, I was like... hmm, the XR has aged well! If I owned the XR and wasn’t leasing it, I’d be happy to keep it for another year at least. I’m Going with the 12pro though, because my contract is up for renewal, and the camera upgrades are useful to me.

The other difference between your XR and the 12 is the transition from LCD to OLED display. Making for better contrast, proper HDR video playback, and better battery performance as doesn’t highlight the entire panel under the display. It’s also a lot more detailed due to the vast increase of pixels per inch. From 326 on the XR to 460 on the 12 & 12 pro models.

Iphone 12 Pro a let down once more. I'm an apple fan. But left after the 6+. My Note 8 is still more enjoyable to the eyes. Bright sharp screen. Everything looks amazingly sharp. Maybe next year 😒

Why do you think the 12 pro is a let down? They use OLED displays, manufactured and tweaked to Apple standards, often better than Samsung displays. Samsung add technology to say it can. Apple add it once it’s feasible and reliable.

I'm not sure about between the 12 and 12 Pro, but I have heard from a few other sources that the 11's have better battery life than the 12's.

Yeah, the Pro has the same sized battery as the non-Pro, and with the few extra hardware features, you’d on average be getting less battery life. I don’t know where he get the idea that the Pro would have an extra 40 mins on average

Question: do you think there is a difference between buying sim free iPhone from Apple vs. an iPhone that is unlocked and sim free using the Verizon link (also from the apple store)? One reason I ask this because the apple website says all the phones are unlocked. Also, because I just want to take my current SIM card (Verizon) from my iPhone X and put it into my iPhone 12 (if I order one) without having to start a 5G plan. Which option do you think would have the easiest results?

I don’t have any reason to pay for more than 64GB. Google Photos has free unlimited storage for all my photos and videos

Oy oldin
C Hux
C Hux

The increase in storage capacity allows for the fact that most apps under iOS 14 are larger, and use more cache. 64GB wouldn’t suffice for this reason.

Yeah, I never had issues with storage because I don't take that many photos and videos anyway. I just use my phone for social media and games (and ofc phone stuff) so 64GB is perfectly fine for me.

Had the same difficulty bro! the specs show that pro is 25 gm heavier. Today i checked it at the store with the case on and there wasn't super big difference between the two. Bought the pro today.. probably going to own it.. I did feel a lot inclined towards the 12 cos it's light weight is captivating. If you really want a lighter phone than SE and the extra zoom and 60 fps HDR recording doesn't matter to you.. Go for the 12 !
