iPhone 12 vs iPhone 6S: see the difference in game graphics you’re missing out on Marvel Realm of Champions

The iPhone 12 Pro is undoubtedly the most powerful phone Apple has ever released, and on sheer digital muscle, it ranks at the top of benchmarks in our testing. But what does that mean for gaming? We chatted with a handful of devs about how their upcoming high-profile games will play on an iPhone 12 – and what you might miss out on if you don’t upgrade.

Broadly speaking, iPhones get better and better internals every year, with better specs powering better graphics.
