iPhone 13: Apple Is Sending A New Range Of Smartphones Into The Race

Since 2007, a new year has always been called a new generation of iPhones. The models of the new iPhone 13 were presented in September 2021: Apple fans can look forward to updates on the display, chip, memory and smartphone camera. But what exactly can the new iPhones do, and what makes them different from the previous iPhone 12 models? We have looked at the technical data in detail and will tell you.

iPhone 13: Everything You Need To Know: The iPhone 13 Series At A Glance

The models of the iPhone 13 series can be pre-ordered from September 17th. They will be delivered a week later for the official sales start, more precisely on September 24th 2021.

The Apple 13 Series Includes The Following iPhone Models:

  • iPhone 13 mini
  • iPhone 13
  • iPhone 13 Pro
  • iPhone 13 Pro Max

The iPhone 13 mini is a 5-inch cell phone and is therefore particularly handy. Nevertheless, the mini version offers almost the same features as the iPhone 13, except that the battery is a little weaker. The Pro models impress again with a significantly better display and camera performance.

These Are The Innovations Of The iPhone 13 Generation:

  • Apple A15 Bionic chip for even faster performance
  • Enlarged display area thanks to a narrower notch
  • The new variety of colors: rose, midnight, polar star and sierra blue
  • Smoother operation and faster responsiveness with 120 Hertz displays on the iPhone 13 Pro models.
  • More storage space for photos and videos: The models start at a size of 128 GB and offer a maximum of 1 TB of flash storage in the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max
  • Stronger batteries for a longer run time
  • Camera update with larger pixels and new photo and film techniques
  • New operating system: iOS 15

For Those Who Have A Little More Reading Time: The iPhone 13 Series In Detail

There have been numerous rum ours about the new iPhone generation on the Internet in the last few months. We were, therefore, all the more curious to see which leaks have come true. Find out what the new iPhones look like and what they can do here.

Smaller Notch, IP Certification, A Wide Range Of Colors

We did not expect a design revolution because we know from the past that Apple is not a fan of frivolous design revisions. And with this expectation in mind, we weren’t surprised: the iPhone 13 looks similar to the iPhone 12, with only minor differences. However, there is a noticeable change in the display. Apple has been working hard to make the notch even smaller since it was introduced on the iPhone X, increasing the ratio between the front and the screen. Apple has now also succeeded in doing this with the iPhone 13: According to the manufacturer, the display recess has been reduced by 20 per cent and visibly narrower than before. Some will surely also recognize that the notch has become slightly wider for this. But that is manageable because it is only a few millimeters. Another visible difference compared to the iPhone 12 can be seen on the back of the device: The camera lenses on the 13 model are no longer arranged one below the other but diagonally to one another.

While the mini and standard models of the iPhone 13 are in an angular, shiny aluminum frame, the Pro versions are high-quality stainless steel and have a matt finish. As a screen protector comes back, sturdy glass, also called “Ceramic Shield”, is used. Like the previous series, the iPhone 13 models are certified with protection class IP68 and are therefore waterproof cell phones. Apple also remains true to its extensive color palette: the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini are available in pink (“Rosé”), blue, black (“Midnight”), white (“Polar stern”) and in (Product) Red. Silver, graphite, gold and blue (“Sierra blue”) are available for the Pro versions.

The Displays At A Glance:

The display sizes and resolutions remain unchanged compared to the previous models. While the iPhone 13 mini fits in every handbag and trouser pocket and can still be operated with one hand, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is ideal for mobile work. The standard and Pro versions of the iPhone 13 are versatile, with a screen diagonal of 6.1 inches.

  • iPhone 13 mini: 5.4 inches, 2,340 x 1,080 pixels (476 ppi)
  • iPhone 13: 6.1 inches, 2,532 x 1,170 pixels (460 ppi)
  • iPhone 13 Pro: 6.1 inches, 2,532 x 1,170 pixels (460 ppi)
  • iPhone 13 Pro Max: 6.7 inches, 2,778 x 1,284 pixels (458 ppi)

New OLED Display And Higher Refresh Rate For The Pro Models

Apple is installing a new Super Retina XDR display with OLED technology that is 28 per cent brighter than the screen of its predecessor. The screen thus achieves a maximum brightness of 800 nits (mini, standard) or 1,000 nits (Pro models) and a peak brightness of up to 1,200 nits for HDR content. The extended P3 color space is also supported. High-resolution image content in vivid colors and strong contrasts are therefore out of the question.

When the iPhone 12 series was unveiled last year, the refresh rate was hotly debated. The 120 Hertz, which is now common in the industry for premium smartphones, including the iPhone, fans had already hoped for in the iPhone 12. Apple surprisingly stayed true to the somewhat old-fashioned 60 Hertz. The significant upgrade to a turbo display was, therefore, eagerly awaited for the iPhone 13. But the higher refresh rate of up to 120 Hertz can only be found in the Pro models. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini still run at the conventional 60 Hertz. Apple uses a dynamic frequency between 10 and 120 Hertz for the Pro models so that ultra-fluid display is possible even with graphics-intensive mobile games, but at the same time, the cell phone battery is saved. Apple calls the technology “ProMotion”: The frequency is automatically adapted to the respective application. So far, the technology was reserved for the Apple iPad Pro 2021 models.

Apple’s A15 Bionic Chip Is Twice As Fast As The Competition

The A15 Bionic chip logically follows as the cell phone processor in the iPhone 13 after the A14 SoC in the models of the iPhone 12 series. Like the A14, the successor was also manufactured using the five-nanometer process and had six CPU cores and four GPU cores. The 5 nm process corresponds to the current industry standard and is also used in upper-class chips such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, used in numerous Android phones such as the Xiaomi Mi 11 and ASUS ROG Phone 5. Apple emphasizes the new chip’s lead over Android smartphones: The CPU and graphics engines are 50 per cent and 30 percent faster, and the performance is even more energy-efficient. For better performance, Apple also uses artificial intelligence (AI) a.

More Battery Power, Improved 5G, iOS 15 And More Storage

Apple is usually reluctant to give precise details on battery capacity. No specific information on the battery was disclosed for the iPhone 13 series either. What is certain, however, is that Apple promises more power for all models. The iPhone 13 phones are equipped with a larger cell phone battery that, according to Apple, should last noticeably longer than its predecessor. The iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 means around 1.5 hours longer, while the Pro models have a longer battery life of around 2.5 hours. Also, the inductive charging via Mag Safe is back on board.

Of course, the new iPhones are also 5G cell phones again. In addition, Apple has modernized 5G technology to encompass even more frequencies, and higher speeds are possible. The iPhone 13 models are, of course, delivered with Apple’s new iOS 15 operating system. The software is also available as an update for older Apple cell phones from the iPhone 6S onwards and offers numerous optimizations and features concerning Facetime and Siri.

The iPhone 12 was available with 64, 128, 256 and 512 GB of internal memory, which, as usual with Apple smartphones, cannot be expanded via microSD. With the iPhone 13, the maximum for the Pro models has been increased to a whopping one terabyte, which is almost double the previous upper limit. In addition, there is no longer a 64 GB storage option for the iPhone 13 models; instead, the 13 series starts with 128 GB of flash storage.

Camera With Larger Pixels And New Photo And Film Techniques

For the camera setup of the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13, Apple again relies on a dual camera that combines a 12 MP wide-angle lens with a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle lens. The Pro models are equipped with a triple camera, consisting of a wide-angle, ultra-wide-angle and telephoto lens sensor with 12 MP each and a lidar scanner. Even if the camera equipment remains the same in all four models, the sensor of the primary wide-angle camera has been optimized, or more precisely: enlarged. This also makes the pixels more considerable and the recording quality better, as more image and light information is recorded. This also applies in particular to the night shots. Optical image stabilization with sensor shifting has been integrated across the board across all iPhone 13 versions. The new cinema mode on board is a novelty and highlight, a kind of portrait mode for moving images with better autofocus, which promises even more professional video recordings. There is, therefore, no question that the iPhone 13 models will make it to the list of offline cell phones with a good camera.

Conclusion: The New iPhone 13 Series Offers Exciting Features And Optimizations

Now they are finally here: the new iPhone 13 models. At first glance, you could be a little disappointed, as there are no groundbreaking innovations compared to the previous iPhone 12 – neither in terms of design nor technical features. But if you take a closer look, you will find interesting features and optimizations. Be it the larger battery, the improved camera, the brighter display, the faster chip or the new functions thanks to iOS 15: The iPhone 13 smartphones do not have to hide under any circumstances and fear the competition.
