I've been home in New York for the past 7 months and a lot has changed. I've never explored the city this much before and with the release of the new iPhone 12 Pro I wanted to make sure I captured little more than just Manhattan.

The iPhone 12 Pro is the first to record in 4K Dolby Vision which is a big deal. We might not all have the skill of Andy T, but we can rest assured that the videos of our kids falling off bikes will look glorious!
