Sometimes, the best smartphone features are reserved almost inexplicably, for the largest models. However, a new report reveals one possible reason why the regular iPhone 12 Pro misses out on Apple’s best camera.

Pro Max but, unfortunately for those with smaller hands, only the larger model gets Apple’s best camera hardware. Now, a recent teardown by iFixit reveals one very good reason behind this decision. It simply won’t fit.

On paper, the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max main cameras look almost the same. Both offer 12-megapixel sensors paired with  f/1.6 lenses but, as iFixit’s recent teardown shows, Apple has given the Pro Max model an improved version with a 47 percent larger sensor as well as Apple’s latest

Applications to the quality control agency, the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), typically used to be processed within 15 days, but some are now taking up to two months or longer.

BIS started delaying approvals in August for China-made imports of devices like smartphones, smartwatches and laptops, part of the fallout from deteriorating ties with China after a border clash in June that left 20 Indian soldiers dead.

Apple enlists influencers to promote iPhone 12 mini on TikTok

Apple is now using its previously dormant TikTok account and recruiting popular influencers on the platform to promote the iPhone 12 mini.

The new marketing campaign comes about seven months after Apple first established its verified account in April. Until now, the TikTok account has remained unused.

In November, Apple published four video clips featuring TikTok influencers Jessica Wang, Kevin B Parry, Zach King, and Julian Bass.

Each clip features the influencers making various items shrink to a more compact size, including jackets and cupcakes. They all end with the iPhone 12 being shrunk down to an iPhone 12 mini. The TikTok videos also challenge viewers to “make it mini,” with a new hashtag for the proposed trend.

The campaign seems to have boosted Apple’s profile on the platform, since the company now has around 378,000 followers and 350,000 thousand likes as of writing.

TikTok has been the subject of

The convenience of a phone camera is why it has become such an intrinsic part of the smartphone experience. The ability to quickly whip it out of your pocket, take a photograph, and know that you’ll get a great-looking image is why a lot of people splurge on a high-end flagship phone. However, you don’t have to break the bank anymore to get an amazing camera phone.

The iPhone 12 is Apple’s affordable smartphone. The one that eschews some nice-to-have features for a lower, more approachable price point. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is Samsung going all-in on a feature-packed affordable flagship.

With similar price points, but two different ecosystems, we pit the two phones against each other to test out their imaging prowess. Here is Android Authority‘s iPhone 12 vs Samsung Galaxy S20 FE camera test comparison. Be sure to cast

iPhone 12 Pro Max teardown reveals a truly huge main camera

It’s no secret that Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro Max boasts a larger main camera, but it’s now clear just how enormous that sensor really is. iFixit has posted a teardown of the iPhone 12 Pro Max that illustrates the camera size in vivid detail. While the cam itself is visibly larger, it’s the sensor-shift stabilization that puts it over the top — the full unit makes the regular 12 Pro’s main shooter look dainty by comparison. Apple might have needed to make “compromises” to stuff that camera into the smaller phone, iFixit said.

Many other parts are larger, too. It’s not surprising that the battery is the largest for any current iPhone at 14.13Wh (albeit smaller than the 15.04Wh from the 11 Pro Max). However, the speaker and Taptic Engine are also huge, at least compared to the compact parts inside

iOS 15 support

  • iOS 15 reportedly won’t support the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, or iPhone SE.
  • iOS 14 supported all of the same phones that iOS 13 supported, but after five years, Apple might be ready to completely move on from the 2015 iPhone models.
  • iOS 15 should launch alongside the iPhone 13 in September 2021, providing Apple is able to return to its normal release schedule after the pandemic.

Apple has always been fairly inclusive when it comes to support for old hardware in modern software. The launch of iOS 14 last month is a prime example, with support for all the same iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models as iOS 13, despite all of its new features and changes. Sadly, according to a recent report from the Israeli technology blog The Verifier, it looks like iOS 14 will be the last major
