You thought Black Friday would offer the best iPhone 12 deals of the year? Well it looks like we were all mistaken as the end of year sales supplied some of the best prices on all four iPhone 12 handsets yet.
Whether you’re looking to keep it small with the mini, land in the middle with the 12 or pile your Christmas funds into a shiny new iPhone 12 Pro Max deal, there is something for everyone right now.
The most impressive offers fall on iPhone 12 deals and the smaller iPhone 12 Mini deals where retailers have had more scope to chop prices down. As for the iPhone 12 Pro and larger iPhone 12 Pro Max, sales have still seen prices fall, just not quite as significantly.
iPhone 12: at Fonehouse | Three | £95 upfront | Unlimited data, calls and texts | £37pm
This is the best iPhone 12 deal we’ve seen since the handset was launched, offering a completely unlimited data, calls and texts plan. For that cap-free contract, you’re only paying £37 a month and £95 upfront. That is one of the cheapest prices available on the iPhone 12, spreading your bills across upfront and monthly bills.
Powered by the A14 Bionic chipset like the rest of the iPhone 12 devices, don’t be fooled – the iPhone 12 mini is certainly powerful for its size. Bolstered with a duo of camera lenses, you’ll find the two 12MP sensors work in perfect tandem to secure some gorgeous shots, with the ability to shoot in Apple’s Portrait and Night modes seamlessly.
It’s also worth noting you can benefit from 5G with the iPhone 12 family being the first iPhones to have this capability. A long time coming for Apple, this is the icing on the cake of a premium array of stunning handsets.
Apple’s brand new iPhone 12 is in every way an improvement over the iPhone 11. However, other than the introduction of 5G and Apple’s new MagSafe feature, this is very much an incremental update.
It throws in Apple’s A14 Bionic chip – the fastest processor in any phone, improves the camera across both pictures and video for crisper shots and better low light photography and ups the display with more pixels and a higher brightness.
The Apple iPhone 12 Pro represents a big jump forward for the company. Not only is there a new design with that Ceramic Shell bumper but inside it’s all fresh too.
That’s thanks to the powerful A14 Bionic processor, the first at five nanometers – which means it’s power efficient as well as fast. This, combined with the triple 12MP camera, now offers LiDAR depth detection and Dolby Vision video recording quality.
The iPhone 12 Pro comes with 5G connectivity, more OLED screen in that 6.1-inch housing than previous generations, and the super powerful seven-element lens toting camera system that offers next-level low-light photography. In short, it all helps to justify that rather steep price tag for the first time in a few iPhone generations.
iPhone 12 Pro Max:
The iPhone 12 Pro Max is the largest and most expensive of the iPhone 12 devices. Not only does this handset offer that massive 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display but it’s also backed by 5G connectivity and the next-gen five nanometer A14 Bionic chip. All that means you can capture video in Dolby Vision quality.
But the camera story continues as those three lenses, all 12MP, offer ultra wide, wide and telephoto. That means optical zoom, way more light for Night Mode shots and a new level or focus thanks to a LiDAR sensor backing it all up. Once the Apple ProRAW feature goes live, this is going to be a real competitor for pro DSLR cameras, or at least that’s what Apple hopes and is working towards.
