    Yes, the iPhone 12 Pro is the same price as the iPhone 11 Pro. A bit less, even, when you adjust for storage, especially for storage upgrades.
    The regular iPhone 12, though, well that’s $100 to $150 bucks more, depending on your carrier and AC adapter situation. But, for that money, you’re getting an iPhone 12 that’s closer, just far closer than ever to being an iPhone 12 Pro.
    Similar redesigns, just different colors and an aluminum band with a gloss back instead of a stainless steel band with a mate back. Very similar OLED display, just not quite as bright when not showing HDR. Identical A14 Bionic chipset, just 4GB of memory instead of 6. Identical LTE and 5G, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0, and U1 ultra-broadband. Same App Store and Apple Store support. The only big difference is the additional telephoto camera and LiDAR scanner, and double the extra base storage.
    And then, for just $150 more than that, you’re getting the full on iPhone 12 Pro with… all of that.
    For me, that makes the Pro worth it. Aide from connecting to the internet, the camera is just the most important feature to me. To quote someone I met in an iPhone line, I can never go back in time to get better photos so I always want the best camera I can have at any time.
    If you’re coming from an iPhone 6s or 7 or 8, even a X or XR, everything taken together, from the OLED display to the better cameras and radios, MagSafe, just everything, makes for a really compelling upgrade.
    If it’s just too much cash for you, if you weren’t asking for OLED or 5G, Apple just did their Usual price drop on last year’s model as well, and you can now get an iPhone 11 with LCD and LTE starting at $600, which Might just be super compelling in 2020. The iPhone XR from 2018 is now starting at $500 as well, and this year’s new iPhone SE, which is kind of like iPhone 11 guts in an iPhone 8 body, is at $400.
    If you have an iPhone XS or 11, especially 11 Pro, and you don’t just have money to burn, and aren’t on an annual update program - or, of course, work in the tech industry - then you’ve got to really, really not just want but need the new camera, especially on the 12 Pro, to even remotely consider it.

      I really want to know difference between 4gb ram and 6gb ram.

    7. Gene Edward

      I got mine through *cyberwizard19 on instagram* at a low discount, that guys is a life saver indeed💯 ✅

    8. Tam V. Ðinh

      My iPhone 12 pro was shipped to me with defected speakers. Apple made me send it back to them before sending me a new one? WTF? What am I supposed to use while the 2 weeks that it will probably take to send me a new phone? Totally unacceptable!! What a horrible experience. I guess Apple doesn’t really care about customer satisfaction. I’m not very happy with this experience.

    9. Brad DeRousse

      I’ve had my 12 Pro for 3 days and I absolutely love it. It’s a fantastic size, and it doesn’t feel too big, coming from a first gen SE. The screen looks great, and so far the battery is fantastic! It is blowing away my SE battery.

    10. Matt T

      Great review! Awesome production value!

    11. Mike Nice

      Come on Rene @ 6:10 you could have found another word. Impregnated was too much 😂 Edit: time stamp

      Come on Rene @ 6:15 you could have found another word. Impregnated was too much 😂

    16. Filmerfilms

      I’m changing from a 6S to a 12 pro so I think I’m going to notice a big difference can’t wait.

    17. SC C

      Debating between pro or pro max. Currently using 7 plus and one plus 6t.

    18. LV DS

      Recommend a brand for everybody:WiWU This brand has been working offline for 10 years. Its products are not only well designed, but also of higher quality than your expect. The current products including a full range of iPad accessories, such as paper film, stylus pen, protective cases and USB-C docking stations. Phone accessories, such as mobile phone case, tempered film, fast charging cable, charger, etc. There are other products that are more appreciated, friends in need can follow and search WiWU.

      06:45 Why did I get so nervous 😫😅

    20. mlodyiceblue e

      DOES YOUR IP12 HAVE WARM TINT Does your IPhone 12 have yellower/warmer screen compared to IPhone 11/Pro,Xs,X? I checked about 15 iPhone 12 in diffrent stores and every had a warmer/ yellow tint screen compared to the previous iPhone’s. Im asking because i want to know is that a screen defect, previous iphones also had it but now literally every 12 seems to have it

    21. tiger destefano

      Imagine being upset about a phone screen refresh rate.. in a world like this

    22. Anas Ahmed

      reference of barry allen was hilarious 🤣

    23. Gary Meacher

      Cheers for the Voltron lions!

    24. Brad DeRousse

      I just ordered a 12 Pro in graphite through my AT&T store. Pacific Blue models are backlogged and currently aren't scheduled to ship until December 17. I wasn't determined to only get it in Pacific Blue, so I asked about how long until I could get the Graphite model, and that one will be shipped to me by November 17. So, Graphite it is!

      I still have no idea what “deep fusion” is.

    28. T Chowdhury

      Apple's display? really??!!

    29. RhinoVanDam

      I’m so caught between 2 minds, with a baby on the way this is going to be my last upgrade for a very long time, and I can’t decide between the mini or the pro max. I love how the mini looks but the pro max has the lovely camera and extras. What do I do 😭

    30. xcalibur1011

      excellent full review double r and my compliment to your photographic assistant, my ? is will there finally be an edge to edge screen notch less wireless i phone # ? coming in 2021 or beyond considering that for me i,ll just let 2020 end before i consider upgrading or buying a new $martphone. Happy holidays!

    31. Miguel Pi


    32. Nick Evans

      Finally!!! You help me out alot. I've been wondering what phone to get for three days and I'm going to get the 12 Pro. You clearly know your stuff. Great video.

      1. Nick Evans

        Also, I subscribed and like the video.👍

    33. Mr Earthshome

      A bunch of people have done a drop test and the glass shatters to the point where they have pieces sticking upwards

    34. legniak1

      The better camera in the max is tempting but the pro has an excellent camera, awesome video capture and a better size for me. I wish the cost of the 11 pro would go way down but it's roughly the same price

    35. Anthony Novelli

      Does it seem like the over sharpening of the 11 has been moderated a bit in the 12?

    36. RNJudas

      iPhone 12 sold separately.

    37. J Toh

      Your review is very comprehensive. Well done !

    38. Aniyah Bryant

      I love apple 🍎

    39. Burger Ham

      iphone 6s' video seems to be the best and less noise.


      Well done to your good wife as the Model 😍


      Very well produced 👍🏻 New sub here. Cheers from Western Australia 🇦🇺 🤘🏻Buying the 12 Pro Max here

    42. Logical Indian

      Sir, could you reduce the duration of your videos? I mean, I agree videos are super detailed but then they are of one whole class/period (of college) length!!

    43. Redcat Roostertail

      Junk. Lol

    44. Ojas Nimsarkar

      Can I See Videos In Dolby Vision On iPad Pro ?

    45. Shayshahn Phearnone MacPherson

      Great review. What camera and lens did you shoot the talking head part of your review with? It looks very clean.

    46. Paxton Ables

      Watching this with my iPhone 12 pro

    47. Kenneth Crips

      Dolby Video does this mean we will finally get a crystal clear video of a UFO?

    48. Abiy BattleSpell

      prob 1-2 yrs till they do both face and touch. considering the times both options be nice

    49. Dom Krissada Sittichan

      How is the whole video just grainy and blurry looking? Its not very easy to know if the iphones camera is good if it looks like it was taken on a iphone 6

    50. Kevi Kiru

      You see Rene, you don't need to make it 10 to 15 min like all other youtubers, we like to hear your voice and tone for lengthy periods. This is your most popular video to date!!!

    51. Edgar Garcia

      Wow, now this is a proper review. Definitely a subscriber. Thanks I feel completely informed. 😊

    52. Johnny Cash


    53. P-Can

      12 aren’t as big as xr or 11 actually smaller ↕️↔️just same screen size

    54. P-Can

      $1000 in Canada 👎👎


      Waiting for higher refresh rate

    56. Bret Allen

      Samsung again outperforms Apple for 2020!

    57. ruhulmo71

      I wasn’t planning on upgrading this year as have an iPhone 11 Pro, but going for the big boy iPhone 12 pro max. The new design and camera the main reasons. I went from a XS max to the 11 pro as was getting fed up with the big phone in my pocket, but now actually miss the big screen as reading is a bit more difficult now!

    58. LoveEuroFootball

      Love your reviews. Listen to MacBreak Weekly and really enjoy listening to you and learn a lot.

    59. Me Ma

      I also dont like I phone but I know it is a overpriced beast if you know how to use it.. And then i saw you randomly and your channel is all about lets go against I phone....

    60. cohen787

      Very thorough, thank you!

    61. Sucha Nolife

      If Rene's review is 45 minutes than Flossy must be releasing a 3 hour movie

    62. Punisher Destroyer

      The specs have been in normal China phone....

    63. wasiu animashaun

      Same phone for a decade

    64. Joel Romero

      I can’t wait to get my iPhone 12 Pro Max

    65. rotimi kayode

      I really want to see how battery life was because mine hasn’t been the best since I bought the phone

    66. Malevolent AK

      Very good review. Would like to see one for the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 pro max when they come out. I like the small form factor of the mini, but I’m not clear on what I would be missing with the higher end models to justify my appeal versus function/features other than the obvious size. I despise large phones/watches

    67. Bro. Brown

      How many times have you referred to yourself as a nerd and how many more times will you? Lol

    68. Ryan Payne

      Where can I get those lego sets?

    69. Nick Ganguly

      Retro future design? Common now.... 🙎🏾‍♂️

    71. Sweet Bee

      Couldn’t make it pass 20 mins. through I was interested😕

    72. Joseph Sullivan

      I don't usually comment, but I have to on this video. Rene, this is the most comprehensive and well laid out video on the iPhone 12/iPhone 12 Pro out there. Thank you so much.

    73. Terry Z

      At time 35:39, have you hanged your disclaimer the the iPhone 12 will charge at 15 Watts only if you use a MagSafe charger with only the Apple 20 watt power supply.

    74. Ayushmaan Walia

      My ears are hurting after watching this.

    75. Jesse

      You have some unique ways to pronounce words.

    76. Hany Aly

      Thank you.

    78. Vincent I

      Your voice sounds a little nasal now. Sounds like you have the sniffles. Get well soon 🙏🙂

    79. Petra Ahev

      Hey does it have dual sim capabilities? Like dual sim slots.

      iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max have not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max are not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained.

      Dam rene you deserve nobel prize for boring people

    84. ParodyVines

      Even Apple doesn’t know feature in their phones the ones he know😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 he’s a boring machine

    85. jakedizzle

      Why would you buy a phone to watch movies at 24hz? Buy a TV.

    86. Gryst Tryt

      Why am I here I have an iPhone 7 and im too broke to buy a new one.

    87. Kwarkool

      iPhone mini or me. I have been waiting for it since it was called iPhone SE2 in 2016-17

    91. Boots the God

      Eh he says he doesn’t care about the notch and I’m sure he doesn’t, but I can imagine the praise they’ll get once they get rid of it

    92. Zac Yan

      Best review by far... 🤨👍


      What about the video camera on the iPhone 12 Pro Max ?

    94. Tony Ward

      Hi Rene - Definitely the best review I have watched by far! Thank You! (I have subscribed as a result and removed some others!). I have a iPhone XS 256GB. This works fine as a phone! I have updated every two years to the latest iPhone model. Typically I use my phone for calls, text and the camera. I use my iPad Pro for nearly everything else. I use WIFI at home and really can’t see the advantage of 5G for me especially in Australia. Your review highlights no improvement in the refresh rate and also highlights the limitations in digital zoom. Based on the recent patent for multiple lens cameras with better optical zoom and your comments I feel I am better waiting for the next iPhone 13 Pro Max to get the best camera. Once upon a time I had a separate camera and video camera but hated carrying these around all the time. My camera of choice today is my iPhone so significant improvements are important but as you say if one can afford to wait it will be better next year. Thank You!

    95. Tim Hundley

      Loved the detail that I will not get anywhere else! Also, don’t stiff you modeling talent. Give her name credit. Girls, and humans, like that!

      1. Rene Ritchie

        She’s my podcast cohost, not a model. I kind of assume everybody knows her since she’s legit Internet famous. 😂

    96. HARI PALAT

      When will iPhone 12 pro max review come?

    97. Erick Zamora

      You could have put the night picture side to side with last year iphone, that way we can see the difference. more explanation, same amount of words. Awesome reviews

    98. Alpha Dub

      I have the iPhone 12 and i love it upgraded from a iphone 8 plus so well deserved upgrade waited all year for it

    99. TheDelawar

      Excellent job Rene!

    100. Super Saiyan Jessoid

      This review is art in itself haha best review on the web. thanks brother
