This 5.4-inch iPhone 12 Mini has the same features as the iPhone 12 — just smaller, thinner and lighter.
The new Mini has a completely redesigned audio architecture and uses “computational audio” to automatically adjust sound characteristics. It can auto pair with your iPhone when it comes into proximity, and of course has deep integration with Siri.
The iPhone 12 mini uses Apple’s A14 Bionic, a 5nm chip with better energy efficiency and performance than the A13. It includes a six-core CPU (two high and four low) that Apple claims is 50 percent faster than the A13 chip. It also includes a four-core GPU, which Apple claims will enable “console-quality games.”
The iPhone 12 mini shares the rest of the main iPhone 12 specs and design, too. The iPhone 12 mini has flat aluminum sides that now match the iPad Pro and iPad Air and are similar to the iPhone 4 from 10 years ago.
Apple is also using the new MagSafe magnet system on the iPhone 12 mini. It supports wireless chargers (including Qi-enabled devices), case accessories, and even leather wallets that all snap onto the rear of the device.
