Reasons to Upgrade to the iPhone 12

  • Classic design
  • More options
  • Better cameras

Classic Design

The iPhone 12 brings it back to the old classic design with flat edges rather than the curved edge of other recent iPhone models. Many people find the flat-edged phone easier to hold and manipulate than a rounded edge. This allows you to stand the phone up on its edge for photo or video purposes. It also makes for a firmer grip for fewer drops and damage.

More Options

Staying on the design theme, the iPhone 12 series provides users with a nice range of colors to choose from depending on the aesthetic and image you are going for. The iPhone 12 comes in 5 colors:

  • Black – classic, versatile, sophisticated, and holds up over time
  • Blue – sleek and elegant the Pacific blue option is understated and stylish
  • Green – the Pastel green option offers an interesting hue which is bright yet muted
  • Red – vibrant and eye-catching, red is unquestionably the boldest color option
  • White – another classic option delivering a minimalist yet classy aesthetic

Better Cameras

It seems like Apple is constantly improving and upgrading their cameras with every iPhone release, and the iPhone 12 series is no exception. Professional grade cameras are a longstanding feature of the iPhone, and they just keep getting better. It is such a practical option for people that need high caliber photos to negate the need to carry around a separate camera.

Night mode is a new camera feature on the iPhone 12 which is excellent for taking photos in dimly lit environments. Detail and clarity is automatically enhanced in low light conditions.


What is MagSafe you ask? It is a magnet based mounting and charging system that was originally used for charging MacBooks. MagSafe allows for quick and secure wireless charging for any of the iPhone 12 series phones with a MagSafe wireless charger.

Powerful Speed

The iPhone 12 introduces a new powerful processing chip, A14 bionic, which is the fastest smartphone chip currently on the market. The 16-core Neural Engine is capable of high-level multitasking for improved productivity and efficiency. The 6GB of RAM offered with the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, plus a long battery life, are ideal for all day performance without lag or the need for a recharge.

5G Compatibility

Although the 5G network is still in the development stages, there is no question it is the way of the future to deliver higher speeds and greater bandwidths in both rural and densely populated areas. If you are currently operating on the TELUS 4G LTE network you are likely already pleased with the speed and service, but the 5G network will deliver even faster download speeds, seamless streaming, reduced latency, and wider connectivity.
