Important clarification

As is usual, the article is based on the differences that Apple officially mentioned; Phones have not yet been issued so that they are disassembled and to know the smallest details in them, so it may discover differences such as a change in the speed of the processor frequency or an increase in memory or any internal hardware not mentioned.

Identical things

Before we talk about the differences, these are completely identical matters between the 12 and 12 Pro phones.

The same standard of IP68 water resistance to a depth of 6 meters for 30 minutes, as well as the same protective glass layer Ceramic Shield front.

The differences between phones


outside look: The two phones come with the same design without differences in the external appearance; But there are differences as the side edges of the iPhone 12 are made of "Aerospace-grade" aluminum, which is one of the highest standards in aluminum. The iPhone 12 Pro uses stainless steel with surgical standards "Surgical-grade" or the so-called SAE 316, which is a degree of standards that means very smoothness. This is called surgical standards because there can be no roughness in the surgical tools. And when the phones are released in a week, we will have to hold the two to know the difference.


LiDAR sensor: The iPhone 12 Pro includes a LiDAR depth sensor, which is a sensor that measures the bounce of light on objects and thus recognizes the quality and shape of it and draws a picture of the place before photography, as well as it can be used in different fields. Apple said that it will use it in night mode photography to help the iPhone guess objects in poor lighting. It can also be used in AR fields. The iPhone 12 Pro only contains this sensor, while the traditional 12 does not exist.


Storage and priceThe price of the iPhone 12 starts at $ 800 while the iPhone 12 Pro starts from $ 1000, but this does not mean that the difference is $ 200, as the storage capacity of the iPhone 12 with $ 800 is 64 GB compared to 128 GB in the iPhone 12 Pro with the 1000 Dollars. This means that the actual difference is only $ 150, because 12 128 gigabytes are priced at $ 850.


Screen brightness: The iPhone 12 comes with the same screen as the iPhone 12 Pro except in the intensity of lighting, which is only 625nits in the iPhone 12, while in the 12 Pro it reaches 800nit, which means more brightness for the screen in traditional conditions. The maximum brightness of the two phones is 1200nit. That is, the superiority of 12 Pro occurs in traditional use.


Wight:We mentioned above that phones come with the same dimensions, screen, thickness, and everything; But looking at the weight of the phone, we find the iPhone 12 weighing 164 grams, while the iPhone 12 Pro Vizin 189 grams. The reason for the difference of 25 grams is the quality of the "aluminum lighter" materials used, as well as the presence of a third camera in the 12 Pro.


Photography: The iPhone 12 Pro comes with the same two cameras in the traditional 12, but with improvements in the sensor to make Night Mode available in portrait photography as well as supports ProRaw photo technology. Apple added a dual optical image stabilization sensor, not a single one like the iPhone 12.


Zoom: IPhone 12 comes with 2x optical zoom only and 5x digital zoom; While the iPhone 12 Pro provides a 2x optical zoom, a 4x optical zoom, and a 10x digital zoom.


Video shootingThe video shooting in the two phones is identical in almost everything except for the ability to shoot HDR videos with Dolby support, as 30fps is available on the iPhone 12 and 60fps is available on the iPhone 12 Pro. As well as, of course, the rounding properties mentioned in the previous paragraph.

Other than these 9 points, everything is identical between devices.
