The iPhone 12 Pro, like the rest of the family, uses the old panel, for which Apple has chosen the name Super Retina XDR. The 6.1-inch display with a resolution of 2532 x 1170 pixels displays content at a density of 460 pixels per inch and also supports technologies such as HDR10, Dolby Vision and True Tone.
The iPhone 12 Pro’s display is stunning in every way. Colors are displayed as accurately as possible and do not change at different angles. The contrast ratio infinitely adds to the appeal of Dark Mode, and with a maximum brightness of 1200 nits, you can see the content in all lighting conditions – even in direct sunlight. Of course, the iPhone 11 Pro also had all these features. In fact, the display of the iPhone 12 Pro is not technically different from the previous generation, and only the number of pixels has been slightly increased to maintain the pixel density.
iPhone screen settings as always do not have a special option. You can only enable or disable Dark Mode or True Tone. The weird thing about the iPhone 12 Pro is that it displays colors a little warmer than the iPhone 11 Pro in any case, which contradicts the True Tone goal.
The only weakness of the iPhone 12 Pro display is the 60Hz refresh rate. While flagships and even Android mid-range displays have higher refresh rates (90, 120 or even 144 Hz), Apple has remained on the same standard refresh rate of 60 Hz on all iPhone 12 models. We know very well that this feature will remain the same in 2021 iPhones, too. The always-on display will probably remain in next generation iPhones.
