iPhone 12 VS iPhone 12 Pro: What Should You Buy?

iPhone 12 VS iPhone 12 Pro

Apple’s most anticipated 5G iPhones are ready to roll. This time, Apple has come up with four iPhone 12 models i.e. iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone Pro Max. The pre-order of the iPhone 12 and iPhone Pro has just begun. Apple even delayed the delivery timelines of these iPhone 12 models due to high demand. Pre-order of iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max is expected to start from November 6 and will begin to deliver from November 13.

These iPhone models come in different colors, sizes, specifications, and many other important aspects. Since iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are available for pre-order and if you are confused between choosing them, then we are going to compare both of these iPhone models so, you can decide which is perfect for you.


In terms of design, both iPhone 12 models are quite similar. They rely on the tried and tested mix of glass and aluminum, and the notch is still an integral part of the design. But the edges are no longer rounded, but flat, just like the iPad Pro or the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5. Lovers of the old design will surely appreciate this change. The iPhone 12 seems more beautiful than the iPhone 12 Pro.

There are minor differences in processing. The iPhone 12 is made of aluminum while the higher quality stainless steel has been used for the iPhone 12 Pro.


Both iPhones have an OLED screen that Apple calls “Super Retina XDR.” The size of both of these iPhones is the same – 6.1-inch with 2,532 x 1,170 pixels, and 460 PPI. So, if you are looking for an even smaller size or bigger size then, you need to look into iPhone 12 Mini or iPhone 12 Pro Max

Performance and Equipment

In terms of performance, no matter which model you choose, you don’t have to make any compromises as the powerful A 14 Bionic is installed in both iPhone 12 models. At best, there could still be differences in the built-in RAM. 4 GB of RAM for the iPhone 12 and 6 GB of RAM for the iPhone 12 Pro.

iPhone 12 is available in 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB. The iPhone 12 Pro is available 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB.

Camera: Dual vs Triple Camera

There are major differences in the cameras installed. The iPhone 12 has a dual camera, the triple camera and LiDAR scanner are reserved for the iPhone 12 Pro. Both models have 12-MP lenses for ultra-wide-angle and wide-angle, and a 12-MP telephoto lens is an additional perk in iPhone 12 Pro.

When it comes to comparing cameras of these devices, iPhone 12 Pro wins the race clearly with features like dual optical image stabilization, Adobe Pro RAW, portraits in night mode, and some others.


So, these are the major similarities and differences between these iPhone 12 models. If you love photography then iPhone 12 Pro could be your best grab. But if the price is an issue then, iPhone 12 ($799) is a better choice than iPhone 12 Pro ($999)
