Apple iPhone 12 256GB

APM11

This powerful 6.1-inch smartphone is packed with features, including a beautifully bright Super Retina XDR display, and is accessible straight out of the box.

With the iPhone 12 you get the fastest chip in a smartphone, the A14 Bionic, and it pushes what’s possible. Like crunching trillions of operations or shooting in Dolby Vision – and it’s super-efficient for a great battery life.  

The edge-to-edge OLED display delivers outstanding contrast, incredible colour accuracy and higher resolution for everything you look at. This is the best iPhone display Apple have ever made.

5G on iPhone is superfast, so you can download films on the fly, stream higher-quality video, or FaceTime in HD over cellular.  

The phone is water-resistant up to six metres for 30 minutes and compatible with MagSafe accessories. It’s also engineered to have a 4× better drop performance than the previous generation of iPhones (which already had the toughest glass in a smartphone). The screen uses Ceramic Shield technology, which makes it tough, scratch-resistant, and better able to withstand being dropped.

Available in five colours – black, blue, green, red and white; select your colour from the drop-down menu below before adding to the basket. You are currently viewing the listing for the green iPhone 12 256GB.

Face ID

With advanced Face ID, your face is your password – by simply looking at the iPhone 12, you can unlock the phone, log in to apps and pay for things using Apple Pay.

iPhone is designed to protect your information. Face ID data doesn’t leave your iPhone and is never backed up to iCloud or anywhere else. iOS shows you an app’s privacy practices before you download it. When you use Apple Pay, your credit card number isn’t shared with merchants. And the list goes on.

(To turn on VoiceOver at set-up, press the Side button three times and wait for the announcement that VoiceOver is on. To turn on Zoom at set-up, tap the screen two times with three fingers. After you choose your language and country or region, you can turn on more accessibility features to help you set up your device. Tap the accessibility button on the Quick Start screen then tap an accessibility option to read a description of the feature and to turn the feature on. Tap Back to return to the list of options. Tap Done to return to the setup process.)

Other accessibility features include: VoiceOver + Braille; Speak Screen (reads text to you); Magnifier (use the camera and screen to magnify objects); Dictation; and Reduce Motion (decrease movement of onscreen elements). You can also adjust your display and text size to suit your needs, and use Siri, the in-built assistant, to carry out tasks such as sending a text message, playing a song or setting reminders.

Siri

Splash, water and dust-resistant

Rated IP68 (maximum depth of six metres up to 30 minutes) under IEC standard 60529.

Battery

Or connect to a 20W fast-charge USB-C adapter (not supplied) to go from zero to up to 50 per cent in 30 minutes. Built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Qi wireless charging-capable.

MagSafe

Compatible with MagSafe accessories and wireless chargers. Snap on a new MagSafe case, wallet, or both. (Fear not, the wallet is shielded so it’s safe for credit cards.) Magnets align themselves perfectly every time for faster wireless charging.

iOS 14  

iPhone 12 uses Apple’s most personal and secure mobile operating system yet. iOS 14 is packed with powerful features and shortcuts that get you just what you want, when you want it.

Includes pinned conversations so you can find the people you talk to most easily; Widgets to make using the phone quick and easy; Dark Mode; and Siri Shortcuts.

Camera

Both the Wide and Ultra Wide cameras now have Night mode – and it’s better than ever at capturing incredible low-light shots. The new Wide camera brings in 27 per cent more light. So, whether you take photos by daylight or by moonlight, you’ll get a level of detail and colour that wasn’t possible before.

Night mode senses when light is low and kicks in automatically, maintaining clarity while capturing beautiful vibrant colour. All you have to do is start snapping.

Deep Fusion, in mid to low light, analyses multiple exposures to maximise detail and texture. While the Ultra Wide gets you a heroic perspective and the Smart HDR 3 balances the elements in a shot, bring detail and richness of colour.

Now you can record 4K HDR video with Dolby Vision. Edit in Photos or iMovie. Then zap it to your TV using AirPlay to see all that colour and detail. It’s a start-to-finish cinematic experience – found only on iPhone. Which comes in handy when your dog does something adorable.

FaceTime

The front facing 12MP camera allows you to FaceTime at higher resolutions with wider colour capture for natural-looking skin tones. Initiate video and audio calls over a mobile network or Wi‑Fi to any FaceTime-enabled device.
