iPhone 12 mini is now on sale worldwide after being delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The iPhone 12 mini was announced in October 2020, and then released on 13 November of the same year.


This is the smallest iPhone in the iPhone 12 family. iPhone 12 mini design is an alternative for those who want a smaller iPhone. In recent years Apple has released increasingly large handsets.

Apple iPhone 12 mini also features a premium design, with a shielded glass design called the Ceramic Shield and an angled aluminum edge that will draw our minds back to the days of the iPhone 4 as soon as you grab it for the first time.

iPhone 12 mini was made for those who crave a smaller iPhone that's easy to use in one hand, and if you want the complete Apple smartphone experience in a more compact package, this is the iPhone 12 mini for.

It may seem obvious, but if you're looking for a small iPhone and you're not too worried about the cost, then iPhone 12 mini is an instant, don't-think-about-anything else.

Color choices are blue, white, red, green, or black. It seems like a good mix of colors and 'standard' options for those who want something a little brighter for their phone.

One of the big design changes is one you can't see - the MagSafe, a series of magnets on the back of the phone, which let you plug in various accessories like cases, wireless chargers or car mounts.

Design

The design is reminiscent of the iPhone 4 with angled edges

The smallest iPhone of the 12th generation, easy to hold and use with one hand

Basically it mirrors the design of iPhone 12, if we look at the design of iPhone 12 mini it reminds us of the iPhone 4.But in a smaller body it makes it easier to wrap around and despite its smaller size, the phone still packs a large 5.4-inch screen.

Measuring 131.5 x 64.2 x 7.4mm, this iPhone 12 mini is light too, without feeling too light - at 135 grams it's easy to fit in a pocket, but doesn't feel cheap.

Far from being a slim phone size, iPhone 12 mini comes with flatter edges than we've seen on the recent iPhone generation. Yes, referring to the old iPhone display, it won't suit everyone's taste.

It feels premium like the rest of the iPhone 12 family. The design of iPhone 12 mini gets the same design elements and build quality as the other iPhone 12 series, including the aluminum frame.

The back of the phone is made of glass, and it doesn't feel slippery, like the glass on some smartphones. You will immediately start seeing fingerprints appear on the back of the phone.

The power button is on the right side of the phone, while on the left is the volume button and the silent button. On the bottom edge is a Lightning port for charging, and stereo speakers, with a grille on either side of the connector.

Screen

iPhone 12 mini has a phenomenal screen. For the first time, the company is bringing Super Retina XDR OLED technology to all of its new iPhones, and the difference between this and an LCD is incredible.

The screen is 5.4 inches here, and you can reach all angles comfortably while using the phone with one hand. The resolution is higher than iPhone 11 at 1080 x 2340, and the difference is clear.

That resolution works up to 476 pixels per inch, so even though the screen is smaller than iPhone 12 Pro or Pro Max, it's arguably better. The images are sharp and clear, and the brightness is impressive too.

The screen also supports HDR10, which means you'll see more detail in dark and bright areas when watching content coded with the technology.

The screen is still 60Hz despite the 120Hz rumors. iPhone 12 still uses a 60Hz screen, so the scrolling experience isn't as impressive as it is on some other phones that cost the same.

Camera


On paper, iPhone 12 mini's camera setup looks a lot like the iPhone 11's, but there are enough adjustments to justify the next-generation billing and the exact same camera setup as on the iPhone 12.

There's a 12MP 'standard' wide-angle camera with an f / 1.6 aperture, and a 12MP ultra-wide camera with a 120-degree field of view and f / 2.4 aperture. There's no telephoto sensor here, like on the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, and the Apple Camera is one of the most capable automatic shooters on the market, and the snappers on iPhone 12 mini perform very well.

Due to Apple Smart HDR 3 technology, which works automatically on some shots. It uses artificial intelligence to identify elements of what you are shooting, and optimizes exposure to highlight specific features or areas.

Video recording on iPhone 12 mini is impressive - you can record in 4K at 24, 30, or 60 frames per second, and Full HD recording is available alongside features like slow motion.

The biggest change here is the introduction of Dolby Vision HDR, and in much better quality than the non-HDR clips we recorded.

The front camera is another 12MP sensor, and it will be more than suitable for selfies and video calls. The quality is impressive, and Portrait mode does a great job thanks to the 3D depth sensor which does the heavy lifting (it's this sensor that powers Face ID too).

Specifications and performance


The A14 Bionic chipset can support a variety of multi-tasking activities, including running graphics-demanding games.

There is 4GB of RAM which can be used to support multi-tasking activities and although other manufacturers produce more RAM, the iPhone 12 mini still works well.

If you need a little more power for high-end video processing or similar, then the 12 Pro series packs in 6GB of RAM.

You can have a choice of 64 GB, 128 GB, or 256 GB for the iPhone 12 mini. If you need more space, you should go for iPhone 12 Pro starting at 128GB and working your way up to 512GB

iPhone 12 mini runs iOS 14.2, so you get all the benefits of the latest version of Apple's mobile OS, like the App Library and home screen widgets.

Then there is the addition of this next generation of 5G connectivity technology that is highly anticipated, allowing you to experience higher speeds and easier connections when using cellular data.

It's a great future technology to have, but currently 5G rollouts aren't widely available in many areas, which means it won't immediately be a transformative experience for most people.

There's also MagSafe, Apple's new magnetic docking technology, which lets you plug in wireless chargers and other accessories (at launch only) by simply attaching them to the back of the phone.

Battery life

Apple hasn't confirmed the exact battery size on iPhone 12 mini, but a filing from a cellular dealer in Brazil suggests it's a 2227mAh cell.

As in the latest iPhone models, the battery life has improved compared to the older devices, but still won't give you the best lifetime.

iPhone 12 mini will last for a full day from a single charge. On a day of moderate to high intensity use, the iPhone 12 mini was able to stick with 22% remaining.

If you switch between 5G and 4G connectivity while on the move, you will likely also see decreased battery life because of it.

Apple says the iPhone 12 mini will last up to 15 hours of video playback, while the iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 are both capable of 11 hours.

Apple has upgraded its fast charging technology here via the touch of iPhone 11, which means that iPhone 12 mini can charge from zero to 60% in just 30 minutes at 20W.

The iPhone 12 mini comes with no charging power block or earbuds in the box, this effect is part of Apple's mission to reduce e-waste.

So If you don't have the right charger or a pair of headphones, you will need to pay more to buy a charging power block and headphones. Yes sold separately.

Conclusion

iPhone 12 mini was made for those who crave a small phone but don't want to compromise on quality, and Apple has done a really good job of making it happen.

iPhone 12 mini isn't perfect, with a decent battery life and a hefty price tag for just 64GB of storage, but if you can put those negatives aside, you'll love what iPhone 12 mini can do in its miniature package.

The camera is versatile, the screen is fantastic, it packs in a lot of power and the added benefits of the much-anticipated 5G and MagSafe means it's a phone that will last for years to come.
