Consider your search for a new smartphone over, because the iPhone 12 really can do it all. With up to 17 hours of battery life, 5G capability, two rear cameras and a 6.1in super retina XDR display, it’s a real powerhouse. In our review of the iPhone 12, our writer says the device measures up well to its larger sibling, the iPhone 12 pro. “It runs on that stellar A14 Bionic chip and has the same 16-core neural engine,” they said. “And despite only having 4GB of RAM compared to the iPhone 12 Pro’s 6GB, we didn’t notice any degradation in speed or performance.”

The basic Apple AirPods lack the noise-cancelling and flexible silicon tips of the more expensive AirPods pro, but for everyday use they’re still an exceptional pair of earbuds with top audio performance.

Additionally, the entry-level pro includes a more powerful graphics chip for more intensive tasks.
