Camera Comparison: iPhone 12 Pro vs. iPhone 11 Pro
Apple released the iPhone 12 Pro last week and it goes on sale with the iPhone 12, Mini 12 and 12 Pro Max. The Pro Max has the best camera in the bunch, but since it doesn’t yet exist, we thought we’d take a look at the camera enhancements introduced in the iPhone 12 Pro to see how the camera quality compares to the iPhone 11 Pro.
We have been learning more about the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro from the week or so. FCC documents have found that iPhone 12 models may have a hidden inverse charging feature for future Apple devices, leading to speculation that this could lead to a new MagSafe-enabled Airpods case or perhaps even Apple rumors. By placing air tags item trackers on the back of the iPhone.
We learned that the private hotspot uses the fastest 5GHz Wi-Fi on the iPhone 12 models by default. The combination of high-speed 5G networks and iPhone 12 models that support maximum output on 5GHz Wi-Fi paves the way for faster personal hotspots. As with previous iPhones, there is a new “maximum compatibility” toggle to go back to 2.4GHz Wi-Fi. Private hotspots allow you to share the cellular data connection of the iPhone with other devices such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or Lightning via Mac.

2020 iPad Air vs. iPad Pro: Hands-on Comparison
Apple introduced the new 10.9-inch iPad Air in September, but began shipping the device to customers last week. Since there are so many similarities between the tablets, we chose one to compare with the iPad Pro, which was last updated in March.

The device also includes Apple’s latest A14 bionic chip, while the iPad Pro still has an older A12Z bionic chip.
