iPhone 12 for 5G: Why Apple promises the “start of a new era” for its flagship phone
“Today is the beginning of a new era for the iPhone.”
This is how the head of Apple, Tim Cook, presented this Tuesday the iPhone 12, the new model of his flagship phone, which for the first time will have the ability to connect to 5G cellular networks, something that Samsung and other Android phones already offered last year.
“Superfast”, “advanced”, “secure” were the words Cook chose to describe how the use of these types of networks increases the capacity of the mobile, since it will be able to download information at 4.0 gigabytes per second.
Does the new 5G technology for cell phones have any health risks?
“5G will bring a new level of performance for downloads and uploads, higher quality video streaming, more responsive games, real-time interactivity and much more,” Cook said.
This enables 4K video playback and editing, uploading photos in their highest resolution, and playing graphics-intensive video games with greater fluidity than previously possible and with less battery use.
The new version of the cell phone will come in five colors – white, black, red, green and blue – and will be 11% thinner, 15% smaller and 6% lighter than the iPhone 11.
The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be superior versions, the latter with a 6.7-inch screen, the largest ever for an Apple mobile phone.
But there will also be a smaller version, called the iPhone 12 mini, the “smallest, thinnest and lightest” 5G-capable mobile on the market, the firm said.

In the case of the iPhone 12, it will also feature a next-generation OLED screen, Apple promises to offer the most durable glass in the industry with its “ceramic cover”.
It uses the new A14 Bionic chip, the first to be built in a five-nanometer process, allowing the phone to achieve better graphics performance.
Your camera will continue to work with two or three lenses, as in the previous versions, but Apple promises that it will have better capabilities, including superior sensitivity at night and in the front camera, two points that are usually limited in most phones, including those from Apple.
5G technology is also not widely available and in many countries it is not yet installed. In the US, Apple’s largest market, 5G speeds are particularly slow.

In fact, according to one study, downloads over Canada’s 4G networks tend to be faster.
However, in China, Apple’s second-largest market, the government has encouraged its rapid deployment and recently announced that both Beijing and Shenzhen had achieved “full coverage.”
