Apple iPhone 12 256GB
Let the fun begin with the iPhone 12. It features the powerful A14 Bionic chip, 5G to download and stream high-quality video, a bright 6.1″ Super Retina XDR display, and Ceramic Shield for better drop performance. Other features include incredible low-light photography with Night mode on both cameras, cinema-grade Dolby Vision, new MagSafe accessories for wireless charging, and much more.
Display that goes all the way
6.1″ Super Retina XDR display with 2532 x 1170 resolution at 460ppi takes you to the edge
All-screen OLED with aerospace-grade aluminum edges delivers brighter brights, darker blacks, and higher resolution for everything you look at
HDR display is packed with features including True Tone, wide colour (P3), haptic touch, a typical 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, 625 nits max brightness (1200 nits with HDR), and fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating
More processing power with A14 Bionic and iOS 14
256GB of on-board storage
A14 Bionic chip crunches trillions of operations on the Neural Engine, handles shooting in Dolby Vision, is super-efficient for great battery life, and brings the latest augmented-reality (AR) experiences to life
iOS 14 is packed with shortcuts that get you just what you want, right when you want it — including pinned conversations in Messages, redesigned Widgets, and App Clips that let you use a small part of an app to quickly do things like pay for parking or order takeout
Two stunning cameras
Dual-camera system features wide and ultra-wide cameras (both shoot 12MP, and up to 4K video at up to 60fps), giving you a level of detail and colour that wasn’t possible before
Record 4K HDR video with Dolby Vision, edit in Photos or iMovie, then zap it to your TV using AirPlay to see all that colour and detail for a start-to-finish cinematic experience
Both cameras have Night mode, which senses when light is low and kicks in automatically, maintaining clarity while capturing beautifully vibrant colour
They also feature Deep Fusion, which in mid to low light analyses multiple exposures to maximise detail
Smart HDR 3 with Scene Detection balances all the elements in a shot for rich detail and colour,
Scene Detection uses machine-learning to recognise scenes, then adjusts sharpness, colour and white balance where needed
Take great photos even further by choosing from 6 creative lighting effects: Natural, Studio, Contour, Stage, Stage Mono, and High‑Key Mono

Dual SIM with eSIM lets you have both a personal number and a business number on the same iPhone (note: iPhone 12 is not compatible with existing micro‑SIM cards)
