Apple iPhone 12
The Apple iPhone 12 price in Kenya is Ksh 91,999. The iPhone 12 is one of four devices that Apple presented in September 2020. It is the successor to the popular iPhone 11 and will receive a completely new design this year since the launch of the original iPhone X in 2017. The 6.1-inch LCD screen has been replaced by a screen with OLED technology, where the different sensors to use Face ID facial recognition are still in the same place.
In addition, the two cameras on the back have received a small upgrade and the A13 processor has been exchanged for the new A14 processor. Charging the iPhone 12 is fast via a Lightning cable, but can also be done wirelessly and the iPhone 12 comes with Apple’s latest software, iOS14.
OLED screen with a smaller notch
The appearance of the iPhone 12 screen does not change much, only the notch has become slightly smaller, creating more image space. The underlying technology, on the other hand, has undergone considerable work. The LCD screen has been replaced by an OLED panel, and that’s good news. The screen displays colors beautifully and is nice and clear in the sun.

The double lens on the back
Apple has made a number of improvements in the camera area, which is reflected in the quality of the photos. There are two cameras on the back, both with a 12-megapixel sensor. The second camera has an ultra-wide-angle lens, with which you can capture a wider image. Ideal if you take a group photo with many people.
The front camera is incorporated into the notch of the display and also has a 12-megapixel sensor. The portrait mode in iOS has been further improved and provides even better photos.
Processor from Apple itself
The iPhone 12 is equipped with the new A14 chip. This processor is designed by Apple and flies through all apps and games. The A14 is not only a bit faster than its predecessor, but also a lot more energy-efficient. This way your new iPhone will last even longer!
Quick unlock by Face ID
The iPhone 12 is also equipped with Apple’s facial recognition sensors. These sensors are located in the notch of the display and are smaller this year than before. Face ID works super fast and is also one of the most secure ways to lock your phone.
Latest software: iOS 14
The iPhone 12 is equipped with the latest version of iOS. There have been quite a few changes in this release. It is now possible to add widgets to your home screen and many of the standard Apple apps have been given a new look. One thing is certain; iOS remains one of the most user-friendly mobile platforms.
In terms of materials, Apple has chosen to exchange the glass for a metal back. The edges of the device are angular and the glass back of the iPhone 11 has made way for metal. This design gives the iPhone 12 a premium appearance.
