AR at the speed of light.
The LiDAR Scanner on iPhone 12 Pro measures how long it takes light to reflect back from objects, so it can create a depth map of any 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 exactly 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 is better than ever at capturing incredible low-light shots. LiDAR makes Night mode portraits possible. And the Wide camera lets in 27 per cent more light for greater detail and sharper focus day or night.
Wide camera with ƒ/1.6 aperture captures 27% more light
New 7‑element Wide lens for edge‑to‑edge sharpness
New OIS makes 5,000 adjustments per second
LiDAR delivers up to 6x faster autofocus in low light
iPhone 12 Pro Max. Camera to the Max.
The bigger iPhone maxes out the Pro camera system. A 47 per cent larger sensor and larger pixels dramatically increase the amount of light gathered on the Wide camera. A new OIS stabilises the sensor instead of the lens so your shots are steady — even when you’re not. And the new 65mm Telephoto camera lets you zoom in tighter on portraits.
87% better low‑light photos
5x optical zoom range
Bigger 1.7μm pixels
New sensor-shift optical image stabilisation
Portraits that come out at night.
Night mode portraitson the Wide camera give you vivid colour as well as beautiful bokeh that accentuates lit buildings and street lights — any background lights.
Even with a single small light source, LiDAR and our A14 Bionic can render every pattern and texture in the foreground along with realistic colour throughout the room
Portrait mode, fine-tuned.
Machine learning on iPhone 12 Pro is even better at separating the subject from the background. And creative controls let you adjust the background blur and light on faces.
More detail. In the blink of AI.
Smart HDR 3automatically refines highlights, shadows and contours. Even at midday, you can see detail in her face and shadows that graduate all the way to true black.
Smart HDR 3 captures every bit of golden hour magic, pulling out all the texture in the rock while staying true to the subtle blues of the sky.
Smart HDR 3 dials in the white balance, and the sea foam holds its shape and definition despite all the motion.
