Apple has recently announced the launch of its brand new line of iPhone 12 smartphones that are compatible with 5G network speeds. The company is set to release four new 5G-enabled smartphones, which are said to kickstart their new ‘era’ of products.

Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, said: “Every decade, there’s a new generation of technology that provides a step-change in what we can do with our iPhones. The next generation is here.”

The new iPhone 12 models

The new standard iPhone 12 will have a 6.1-inch display and prices will begin at £799, an increase of £70 from their previous model. The company is also releasing a ‘Pro Max’ model, which has a 6.7-inch display, as well as a ‘mini’ version, which will be released in November with a 5.4-inch display at £699.

The new designs are said to have flatter, sharper edges, with larger screens and a special sensor installed to improve low-light photography. However, for the first time in the company’s history, the new devices will not be sold with chargers and headphones in order to minimise Apple’s impact on the environment.

5G capabilities

The new iPhone 12 5G capabilities are said to improve real-time interactivity and responsive gaming, as well as offer high-quality video streaming and faster upload and download speeds.

Apple has claimed that they have tested all of the new devices at 3.5 gigabits per second, the optimum 5G speed, which means, in theory, that a 4K 20-gigabyte film could be downloaded in approximately 45 seconds.

However, the company warns that the experience of each user could vary by region and network and that the phones’ 5G facilities would not be switched on at all times.
