Under the hood, the Apple iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini are powered by Apple’s A14 Bionic chipset and support 5G connectivity. Due to the difference in the body size, the battery onboard also varies. However, both devices support MagSafe wireless charging. Additionally, there’s no charging brick inside the box, but users can use old USB ports with USB-A or USB-C ports. However, the two smartphones still retain a lightning port for charging.
