Apple iPhone 12 vs. iPhone 12 Pro review — Here’s which one to buy
  • CNBC has been testing Apple’s new $799 iPhone 12 and $999 iPhone 12 Pro for almost a week.
  • Bullish analysts think the company’s entering a new “iPhone super cycle” for upgrades.
  • Most people should choose the iPhone 12, but the iPhone 12 Pro has a few nice features some folks will want.
