September is the time when Apple regularly releases new phones, but in 2020, the new iPhone is late for well-known reasons. Finally, the new iPhone 12 was released at 1:00 a.m. Beijing time on October 14, and pre-sale was opened on October 16. The first users who placed orders on the official website received the new iPhone 12 on the 23rd.
Wen also received the iPhone 12 on this day, paying special attention to the charging of the new iPhone, and there are a lot of things to talk about this time.
1、 Different boxes
The packaging box of the new iPhone 12 inherits the packaging style of previous generations of iPhones. The front of the whole packing box only has the front display picture of the new iPhone, and the outline of the display diagram is protruding compared with the surrounding blank area. I believe many users who have used the iPhone know it well.
The side of the box is very simple. An apple with a bite is the logo that makes iPhone famous all over the world and fully represents apple.
On the other side, the logo of the iPhone. Apple no longer indicates the specific model of the phone on the box, but only replaces it with the iPhone.
The text messages on the back are separated up and down. The information on the top introduces the products attached in the box and some new technologies carried by the new iPhone. This is also the first iPhone to support 5g. In the face of Android's ignorance of updating several phones, the iPhone 125g seems to be late.
At the bottom is the model of the new iPhone. Ch / a indicates that this iPhone is the version of the Bank of China. Our one is a white appearance and 64GB memory iPhone 12.
2、 Disposable packaging
Tear off the transparent protective film of the packaging box, and the green arrow indicates the direction of opening, and it is a one-time seal, which can not be restored after unsealing, which can avoid buying a secondary packaging machine.
3、 Out of the box iPhone 12
Open the box directly. It's not so hard to open it. You can open it directly. Our impression is that when we hold the box and lift it up, the lower part also follows, and then slowly slides down. This time, the iPhone 12 can be opened directly.
And the location of the iPhone 12 is different from before. This is the first time that the iPhone 12 is displayed in front of you in the form of the back.
There is an extra handle on the side to take out the new iPhone.
After taking away the new iPhone, the accessories inside are very different from before. Yes, as said at the press conference, from now on, all new iPhones will not be equipped with charging head and wired headset, but only with a fast charging cable, so the packing box is not the same.
4、 Slimming accessories
In the past, the paper accessories have changed from rectangle to square, and the logo sticker of Apple belief has become one, and the iconic card pick-up pin is still there.
We learned from the official website that Apple's 5-fu-1-an charger costs 145 yuan.
The price of a wired earpods with lightning interface is 149 yuan.
Back to the main topic, take a look at the fast charging line attached to apple. There is designed by apple in california assembled in China on the inside, which is also designed for apple to assemble in China. In addition, Apple has also marked the serial number of the attached fast charging line.
One end of the attached fast charging cable is usb-c connector, and the other end is lightning connector.
Take a look at the interior of usb-c with a macro lens. There are 7 pins in each and 14 pins in total.
The measured end-to-end length of the wire is about 105cm, which is the standard length of apple.
We use the chargerlab power-z mf001 tester to test the lightning connector of the wire. From the screen of the tester, we can see that the ASIC and PMU of this data line are original c94 components, with a score of 100 points.
5、 IPhone 12
After simply looking at the accessories, let's take a look at today's main character iPhone 12. Unlike this packaging, the iPhone 12 does not use the front and back plastic film, but only pastes a pure white film on the screen. The position of the mute button and the volume key are also indicated at the position of the film.
On the right is the power button, the same as previous iPhones.
Tear the pure white film directly, no longer have the experience of continuously tearing the positive and negative bright surface film.
The iPhone 12 is available in five colors: black, white, red, green and blue, of which blue is a new color for the iPhone 12 series. The white is not pure white, but a milky white feeling, looks very warm.
Finally, the iPhone 12 can stand up without any object, which is the biggest change in the appearance of the new iPhone, all returning to the water chestnut frame.
The right side of the phone is the classic mute button and volume button. Although the border has been changed from radian to water chestnut, the volume button is still in the shape of a long bar. This time, the iPhone 12 has also moved the SIM card slot from the right side of the phone to the left side. In addition, the upper and lower sides are antenna partition strips.
On the right side of the mobile phone, there is only one physical button to turn on, and two antenna partition strips are respectively provided at the top and bottom.
There is only one antenna line at the top, and it's worth mentioning that the iPhone 12 has a frosted frame.
From left to right at the bottom, there are loudspeaker openings, lightning charging interface and microphone openings, and the right side is antenna strip partition.
After watching the appearance part of this update, next enter the system, boot directly, familiar interface.
After setting, you can directly enter the main screen, which is still the design of bangs full screen, with four sides of equal width. The screen of the iPhone 12 is different from that of the iPhone 11 series. The four iPhone 12 models are equipped with super ceramic crystal panel as standard, which is a product jointly developed by apple and Corning. The anti drop ability of the product introduced at the press conference was improved by four times.
The screen is a super retinal XDR display with a resolution of 2532 x 1170460 PPI.
The front fringe area is still one of the areas with technology since the iPhone X. the small bangs are crammed with multiple sensors including face recognition components, with a front mounted 1200W single shot,? / 2.2 aperture, supporting portrait mode, and Dolby horizon HDR video shooting, up to 30fps, 4K video shooting up to 60fps.
The width of the bottom of the full screen iPhone has always been industry-leading, and this time the bottom border of the iPhone 12 is still very narrow.
6、 Measured size and weight
The measured length of iPhone 12 is about 146.86mm with caliper.
The width is about 71.61mm.
The thickness is about 7.59mm.
The actual weight of the iPhone 12 is 163.2g. Despite the slight error, the whole weight is very light among all the current flagship smartphones, and there is hardly any flagship model lighter than the iPhone.
7、 The next generation is like the next generation
Although the iPhone 11 is the previous generation of iPhone 12, putting the two iPhones together can clearly feel that they are not the same year's iPhones.
If you take a closer look at the border of the two iPhones, the iPhone 12 is much narrower than the iPhone 11.
The chin is narrower, with iPhone 12 on the left and iPhone 11 on the right.
Compared with the bangs of the two iPhones, the width of the iPhone 12 is narrower than that of the iPhone 11. Visually, it seems that the position of the bangs is a little smaller than that of the iPhone 11.
The two iPhones have different frame designs, and the differences can be distinguished from the appearance alone.
The top border of the two iPhones is compared, with iPhone 12 on the left and iPhone 11 on the right.
From the back, the new iPhone 12 is lower than the iPhone 11.
If you overlap the two iPhones, you can see that the iPhone 12 is smaller than the iPhone 11.
Both iPhones have a dual camera design.
Speaking of the frame of the new iPhone, we can't help but think of the last generation of iPhone designed by jobs. The original design of the iPhone 4S is very novel, and the return of the iPhone 12 series frame design may be a tribute to the past glory.
8、 Cable charging
Charging requires the participation of charging head, charging line and equipment. This time, apple only provides devices and charging lines. From the standard configuration of 5W charging head and charging line for users to the present, only fast charging line is equipped for users. I believe that many users need to get used to it.
As can be seen in the figure above, the usb-c connector is connected to the charger. If you want to charge the iPhone 12 normally, you need to use the usb-c output charger on the left side of the above figure. The usb-a charging head (right side) of the old model is not compatible with the fast charging line in the box.
