Compared to the previous iPhone 11, the new iPhone will be thinner and lighter, with a more squared-edged design (similar to that of iPhone 4), rather than the curved-edge style of previous editions.
All iPhone 12 models offer IP68 water and dust resistance and can hold up to submersion in 6 meters of water for up to 30 minutes.
Apple also revealed the phone will feature an upgraded XDR display and a new, tougher glass atop display called Ceramic Shield. This is infused with nano-ceramic crystals to improve toughness and offers 4x better drop protection than the previous generation.
