There are very few differences between the Apple iPhone 12 and the Apple iPhone 12 Mini.

The most noticeable difference between the two phones is the size. The Apple iPhone 12 Mini is smaller with a 5.4-inch OLED screen -- ideal for those who prefer a more compact phone without going super tiny. 

Reviewers also hinted that the battery would also need to be smaller but as always Apple does not disclose battery information on its phones so that’s just a guess.

Everything else is virtually the same -- 5G compatibility, speed, processor and chipset are all identical.
