Despite everything that has been put on pause this year due to COVID-19, Apple continues to go above and beyond when it comes to pleasing their customers. Becoming available for pre-order on Oct. 23, 2020, the iPhone 12 offers a 6.1″ or 6.7″ Super Retina XDR display, 5G cellular, a pro camera system and so much more. 

Overlooking the impressive description that Apple provides the new device, the public has displayed mixed feelings. Business Insider claims “The iPhone 12 has the best balance of performance, features, and design for the price, and it’s the model most people should go for.” Popular for its easy-to-hold design and sharp appearance, this product is adored by many.

On the flip side of the spectrum, some feel just the opposite. Concerns customers have expressed include claiming that the edges of the iPhone 12 are too sharp, leaving scars on users’ hands and “Some users claim that the network improvement is not significant (too small).” 

Hopping on the iPhone 12 train, junior Leah Reed has formed her own opinions on the new device. “I really enjoy the features of the iPhone 12. This is my first phone without a home button, so it was hard to get used to, but I really enjoy that aspect of the newer phones,” Reed said.

Take it upon yourself to conduct some of your own research to figure out if the iPhone 12 is a good match for you and your lifestyle. Many long-time Apple product fanatics have different feelings on the new phones’ display and qualities, although, no phone is perfect…yet.
