It also supports Smart HDR for photos, HDR video recording with Dolby Vision, and Night mode support among other new features.

MagSafe Charging

You can charge your iPhone 12 without having the lightning cable plugged in. This is made possible through MagSafe charging. The iPhone 12 has magnets in the rear casing, which will change to a charging dock for a secure charge. MagSafe has a maximum speed of 15W which beats Apple’s previous best of 7.5w for Qi wireless charging. You will however need to buy a MagSafe charger separately as it doesn’t come in the box with the iPhone 12.
