The iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max have more innovative features for photo buffs: telephoto lenses, a Night Picture mode, better Dolby Vision managing, and Raw photo handling.

The 7-inch screen is simply too big for many people. The iPhone-12 household: the iPhone 12 Pro Max, the iPhone 12 Pro, the iPhone-12, and the iPhone 12 mini The iPhone-12 and 12 mini is available in black, blue, green, red, or white.
