Physical Dimensions

The iPhone 12 Pro coming in with a height of 146.7mm, width of 71.5mm and a slightly smaller depth than previous models of 7.4mm.

Compared to the 12 Pro Max, which has a height of 160.8mm, a width of 78.1mm and the same depth, this phone has plenty of real estate on the screen with a thin body to fit straight into your grip.

That may not feel like a big difference according to the numbers, but when comparing the total surface area of the two, this is likely to be a more comfortable and snug fit in your hand with plenty of screen.


The iPhone 12 Pro has a 2,815 mAh lithium-ion battery which can be wirelessly charged with Qi wireless chargers or with the USB-C to the lightning cable, which is included.

The iPhone 12 Pro battery is Fast-Charge capable, which would mean up to 50% charge in just 30 minutes. This requires a 20W adapter which is sold separately. 

The impressive size of this battery means you will get an impressive 17 hours of video playback or up to 65 hours of audio playback, meaning you can go for days without recharging on a pretty demanding usage.

If you are upgrading from an older model, you will likely feel a significant difference with this upgrade.


The iPhone 12 Pro model weighs in at 187 grams against the Pro Max, weighing 226 grams. This gives it a distinctly lighter feel meaning your hands are less likely to tire from holding for long periods.

Screen Type

The iPhone 12 Pro features a 6.1-inch (diagonal) all-screen OLED  display. This bright and powerful display features 2532‑by‑1170-pixel resolution at 460 PPI, a true tone display, and a wide colour display. It also comes with haptic touch and a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating.

The haptic touch has been a resident feature since the model 11. This allows for responsive feedback when you touch the screen. Haptic touch also serves as a replacement for the home button, which is not present in recent iPhone models.

This technology allows for more accessible and useful features to be easily accessed by pressing and holding on-screen.


The most exciting feature of the iPhone 12 Pro is, of course, the multiple cameras. The iPhone 12 Pro comes with three 12-megapixel cameras. An ultra-wide, wide and telephoto camera opens up a series of great possibilities for your creativity. 

Whether you want to take photos or record video, there is a multitude of features and possibilities to be explored with these cameras.

The night mode setting will give you incredible new options to record in any setting, regardless of the time of day. And a new feature called deep fusion, which takes a series of photos when upon pressing the shutter button and then automatically decides how to optimize the photo as you take it.

Portrait mode has also been enhanced, adding a High-Key Mono filter and depth control which allows for a sharper divide between subject and background.

The iPhone 12 Pro's cameras also allow for 4k video recording at 24fps, 30fps, or 60fps mean you will have the best quality videos possible. With built-in stabilization features, optical zoom to 2.5x and digital zoom at 6x, the ability to capture film quality video is in your hands.

Splash-, Water- and Dust-Resistance

The iPhone 12 Pro boasts an impressive splash/water resistant grading for 6 metres depth for up to 30 minutes. 

A significant improvement from the standard 11, which could only reach 2 metres and the improved models, which could be used at 4 metres deep.

iPhone 12 Pro Price

The iPhone 12 Pro comes at a much lower price than the iPhone 12 Pro Max model. This phone starts at $1,699 AUD.

Including many of the same features and powerful capabilities, the iPhone 12 Pro is a great choice for those who want the newest feature on the market at a more affordable price.
