During Apple's virtual event today, the company unveiled the iPhone 12, and we now know everything about the new phone's price, specs and 5G capabilities. Before the event, we saw speculation around whether the iPhone 12 models would have a 120Hz screen refresh rate -- double that of the iPhone 11.
