iphone 13

Apple has just wraped up this years one of the biggest tech events and i’m pretty sure that every Apple enthusiasts and haters have watched the event, where the Cupertino Giant annouced four new iPhones – iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. And as expected this new iPhone lineup comes with several long-awaited upgrades including a high-refresh-rate screen, a smaller notch, the cameras, and the latest A15 bionic chip.

Moreover, this time Apple has intoduced an all-new 1TB storage options and some special camera tricks like Cimnematic Mode and ProRes Video support (coming later this year). So, here’s everything you need to know about newly announed iPhone 13 lineup. Let’s hop in!

5G

Apple promises improved 5G performance, as well as more band support for better international 5G experiences. By the end of the year, Apple says that the iPhone will be supported by 200 carriers in over 60 nations and regions.

Processor

a15 bionic

New iPhone 13 lineup is powered by A15 Bionic processor. Apple claims that the A15 Bionic chip is quicker and more energy-efficient than the A14 Bionic chip from last year. Although it’s still a 5nm chip with a 6-core CPU (two new high-performance and four new high-efficiency cores), Apple claims it’s the “fastest CPU in a smartphone,” up to 50% faster than the competition.

It also claims that its graphics are up to 30% faster than those of its competitors (though it doesn’t mention who it’s comparing to). iPHone 13 and 13 Mini features A15 with 4-core GPU while iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max feautres A15 with 5-core GPU.

Display

In comparison to the previous generation, the iPhone 13 series will be an incremental upgrade. Apple also introduced Super Retina XDR screens on both variants which are of the same size as last year, measuring 6.1, and 6.7 inches. The Super Retina XDR screens enable variable refresh rates of 10Hz to 120Hz. They feature somewhat smaller notches, which should give the iOS status bar a bit more room.

Camera

The base iPhone 13 has the same ramped camera that Apple unveiled with its biggest smartphone in 2020, with a 47% larger sensor for the wide camera than last year, letting it capture more light in gloomy conditions with less noise.

The 12-megapixel wide sensor has an f/1.6 aperture, while the 12-megapixel ultrawide camera has a faster f/2.4 aperture and a 120-degree field of view. The iPhone 13 will reportedly include Apple’s sensor-shift stabilisation technology, which physically adjusts the broad sensor to decrease vibrations and was first featured on the iPhone 12 Pro Max last year.

Apple also revealed a new “cinematic mode” for video, which allows for a rack focus effect to varying the emphasis during a video, as demonstrated in a Knives Out-style parody. When recording a video, the cinematic mode will intelligently adjust focus when people enter the frame or look away from the camera while filming in real-time. For more exact control, you’ll be able to manually alter focus or lock focus on a specific object. The cinematic mode will also be supported by the front-facing camera.

Battery 

Apple will keep the MagSafe charging technology, which was reintroduced last year. When compared to the iPhone 12, Apple promises that the iPhone 13 Pro will last 1.5 hours longer than the iPhone 12 Pro, while the 13 Pro Max will last 2.5 hours longer than the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

Dual eSIM

In 2018, Apple released the iPhone XR and iPhone XS, which had eSIM functionality. However, while you may use a conventional SIM and an eSIM at the same time, you couldn’t use two eSIMs at the same time until recently. For the first time, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro enable dual eSIM.

Apple acknowledged the new functionality on the iPhone 13 specifications page. According to Apple, iPhone 13 models enable Dual SIM, which includes both normal SIM and eSIM, or “Dual eSIM,” as the company calls it. If you check the webpage of the iPhone 12 or previous generations, only combined Dual SIM support is mentioned.
