Finally, there is the iPhone 12 Pro Max, which is the super-sized variant of the new iPhone 12 Pro and delivers a large 6.7-inch display and an even superior camera system. This costs from £1,099 sim free.

Should you buy an Apple iPhone 12?

Apple's new range of handsets have some great developments over previous models, making them tempting for everyone – even those who bought an iPhone 11 last year. First and foremost is that the entire iPhone 12 range is Apple's first suite of handsets where 5G connectivity comes as standard, meaning that you can tap into the next-gen of super fast mobile networks using them.

Every iPhone 12 model also comes loaded with Apple's brand new A14 Bionic chip, which is simply the fastest phone processor on the planet, and makes the phones not only future-proof and really slick to use, but also provides the juice for all of Apple's advanced camera and video magic.

All iPhone 12 models also have the new 'MagSafe' connection system on the back, which improves wireless charging by locking the charger into place on the phone, but is also great for connecting accessories.

All models also now have OLED displays, and hit brighter HDR peaks than ever before. Previously, the iPhone 11 had an LCD screen while the iPhone 11 Pro went OLED – well, now they all hit OLED, and have higher-resolution displays than Apple has ever offered before.

The iPhone 12 range includes four different models, with three different sizes of screens: from the compact iPhone 12 Mini with a 5.4-inch display, through to the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro with a 6.1-inch screen each, and onto the iPhone 12 Pro Max with its huge 6.7-inch screen.

The two iPhone 12 models have dual rear cameras, while the iPhone 12 Pro has triple rear cameras, as well as LIDAR 3D scanning tech, which helps to make autofocus instant even in really low light. Improved camera performance also means richer pictures even in darker conditions.

All iPhone 12 models can take (and edit) video in Dolby Vision HDR at 4K, which is a first for any device – it makes what you record incredibly lifelike.

We think there is a new iPhone 12 for everyone, and especially so if you are already in the Apple iPhone ecosystem.
