A14 Bionic: generations ahead of any other smartphone chip
A14 Bionic is the first 5-nanometer chip in the industry, with advanced components literally atoms wide. Forty percent more transistors rev up speeds while increasing efficiency for great battery life. And a new ISP powers Dolby Vision recording - something no pro movie camera, let alone any other phone, can do.
LiDAR technology: scans the surface of Mars and now your living room
NASA is using LiDAR technology for its next Mars landing. iPhone 12 Pro Max uses a LiDAR Scanner to measure how long it takes light to reflect back from objects. So it can create a depth map of whatever space you're in. Because it's ultra-fast and accurate, AR apps can now transform a room into a realistic rainforest or show you how a new sneaker will fit.
Pro camera system: a new day for Night mode
Night mode comes to both the Wide and Ultra Wide cameras, and it's better than ever at capturing incredible low-light shots. LiDAR makes Night mode portraits possible. And the Wide camera lets in 27 percent more light, for greater detail and sharper focus day or night.
Dolby Vision recording: 60 times more colors, infinitely more spectacular
iPhone 12 Pro Max jumps from 8- to 10-bit HDR recording, capturing 700 million colors for much more lifelike video. Then it goes one better, recording in Dolby Vision - the format used by film studios. You can even edit Dolby Vision video and use AirPlay to see every last bit of the difference on the big screen.
TrueDepth camera: it's never too late to take another Night mode selfie
Night mode comes to the front camera, bringing all that low-light detail and natural color to your favorite subject. Deep Fusion, Smart HDR 3, and Dolby Vision recording are now on the TrueDepth camera, too. So you'll look your best in any light.
Super Retina XDR display: an infinity pool of pixels
How do you make Apple's brightest display even better? Make it bigger. A new design with flat edges and the flexible custom OLED allowed Apple to push the screen's amazing color, brightness, and contrast right to the very edge.
Privacy is built in
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 card number isn't shared with merchants. And the list goes on.
