Apple released several days ago its most powerful lineup of iPhones. The new models feature not only the implementation of the next-generation A14 Bionic chipset, but they also mark the arrival of the Cupertino-based giant among the 5G realm. iPhone 12 comes in four variants: iPhone 12 mini, the standard iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Unfortunately or not, not any iPhone 12 unit is featuring 5G compatibility. As a lot of people are craving for the new technology as it grants significantly faster and more stable internet, others are skeptical about its obvious benefits.
No 5G for the dual SIM mode
An internal Apple training document reveals an important downside of the company’s newest flagship: once you use the device in dual-SIM mode, there’s no 5G available. The Apple document says the following:
Does 5G work with Dual SIM?
When using two lines in Dual SIM mode, 5G data isn’t supported on either line and will fall back to 4G LTE. If customers are using eSIM only and are on a 5G supported carrier and service plan, they’ll have 5G access.
The Pro Max version of the iPhone 12 is easily the best version of the lineup. The phone is equipped with a 6.7 inches Super Retina XDR OLED display, a 120Hz refresh rate, and all covered by scratch-resistant glass. The IP68 dust/water resistance is also worth mentioning, such as the Dolby Vision, and also the 4K video recording for both the rear and the front cameras.
Since the A13 Bionic was the best processor made by Apple when iPhone 11 came out last year, it’s obvious that A14 raises the stakes even more. The price for iPhone 12 starts at $649 for the mini version, and the highest price tag is $1,399 for the Pro Max model.
