Apple has launched a trio of new cases for the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. These are colorful options for Apple's two phones, both of which share the same physical size. So if you're in the market for a new case, here are some new options.
iPhone 12 Pro
Earlier today, Apple officially unveiled the next major software updates for its platforms at this year's WWDC. It shouldn't surprise anyone that a large range of Apple's devices support updating to the upcoming updates. So you can find a list below of the supported devices that will be updated later this year.
The iPhone 12 lineup isn't necessarily a slouch when it comes to battery capacity, or life. Still, there's some room for improvement. The iPhone 13 series may do just that.
According to reliable leaker L0vetodream, who posted a photo with some information on Twitter recently, Apple is going to give a significant uptick in battery capacity to its next iPhone lineup. At its peak, the biggest increase will see up to 18% improvement to capacity for the larger iPhone. Meanwhile, even the smallest smartphone is reportedly getting bigger.
Wallet cases are not new by any means, but with the iPhone 12 lineup, Apple opened up a few more creative options thanks to MagSafe.
The BookBook is one of the most iconic cases out there, and now Twelve South has a new version that supports Apple's use of magnets.
One of the most important features for the iPhone lineup is the camera systems. But that doesn't mean there aren't some external camera lenses out there still worth using.
There are powerful magnets in a lot of different consumer devices, especially smartphones and other smart devices. As such, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been investigating if many of these devices can cause major issues for individuals with pacemakers and similar medical devices.
Twelve South is back with another accessory, this one designed specifically for the iPhone 12 lineup -- but also for AirPods and AirPods Pro with a wireless charging case.
Apple has a tendency to refresh its color lineup for accessories on a regular basis, adding to what's already available. And, indeed, this year is no different.
Earlier this year, rumors started to swirl that Apple was going to launch a battery pack featuring MagSafe technology. This would veer away from Apple's battery case, choosing to connect the charging accessory directly to the back of the handset instead. But, we're still waiting for that to happen and third-party accessory makers are filling in the gap.
Last year, Apple introduced the iPhone 12 lineup. At the same time, the company also confirmed the handsets would feature 5G connectivity for faster cellular service. They did that alongside Verizon, with the carrier touting its network coverage and speeds. What they did not do, though, is tell folks that keeping 5G on would noticeably impact battery life on your new phone.
Today, Consumer Reports has showcased the "best smartphones of 2021", with several different models making the list this year.
