iPhone 12 vs iPhone 11: Even though the star of last night’s Apple event was the iPhone 12 mini, the iPhone 12 looks pretty impressive too, especially for people who have the iPhone 11 and want to upgrade to the new 5G iPhone. The iPhone 12 succeeds the iPhone 11 launched last year. Following the launch of the iPhone 12 at a starting price of Rs 79,900, Apple reduces the prices of all iPhone 11 variants. The iPhone 11 now starts at Rs 54,900. So, what are upgrades that Apple brings to the all new iPhone 12 when compared to the iPhone 11? Let’s compare the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 11 and take a look at all the differences between the two.
iPhone 12 vs iPhone 11: What’s different

The iPhone 12 comes with a 12MP ultra wide with f/2.4 aperture and 12MP wide angle sensor with f/1.6 aperture.

While the iPhone 12 is powered by the latest A14 Bionic chipset while the one year old iPhone 11 comes packed with A13 Bionic chipset. Apple claims the A14 Bionic chipset is capable of handling games and multi-tasking very well. Both the iPhones come with built-in rechargeable lithium‐ion battery.
