1iPHONE 12 From $1,199 (iPhone 12 mini) $1,349 (iPhone 12) apple.com/au Leave it to Apple to go big. Where Google’s Pixel 5 elicited, if we’re honest, a bit of a shrug, Apple’s announcement of the iPhone 12 – and its attendant mini, Pro and Pro Max variants – caused a stir for all the right reasons. Reasons like the company bringing the ludicrously fast A14 Bionic processor from the iPad Air 4 into a phone form factor, or finally (finally!) giving the iPhone 5G capabilities with, suggests Apple, cover for more 5G bands than any other phone. Reasons like the seven-element rear camera, and the return of Apple’s MagSafe branding in the iPhone 12’s auto-aligning, extra-efficient Qi charging setup. The flat-edged design more than hints at the classic metal frame of the iPhone…

Everyone knows it’s important to look after their mental and physical health but, up until very recently, monitoring heart health and sleeping disturbances required multiple trips to the GP and carrying a wearable ECG device.
