Apple reveals iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max with 120Hz display

Apple's "Pro" iPhone is finally getting a display with a higher refresh rate

iPhone 13 Pro

Following the reveal of the iPhone 13, Apple showed off the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, the higher-end versions of its 2021 smartphone line.

First off, Apple revealed that it’s bringing the iPad Pro’s ProMotion 120Hz refresh rate display to its highest-end smartphones, moving the device more in-line with most Android devices. The screen can also go as bright as 1,000 nits.

Other new features include a 20 percent smaller notch, revamped camera system, macro image shooting and a new 1TB storage option that starts at a pricey $2,079 for the iPhone 13 Pro version.

Like the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max include Apple’s new A15 Bionic chip. On the video side of things, Apple says that it plans to soon introduce a more editable ProRes 4K 30fps video file format, though it’s unclear when this feature will release.

As expected, both the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max measure in at the same size as last year, 6.1-inches and 6.7-inches, respectively.

Taking a closer look at the new camera features, Apple says that the new ultrawide shooter offers better low-light performance, that the telephoto lens features 3x zoom that enables 6x optical zoom across all of its cameras. All three shooters also feature a new night mode, and there’s a new macro photography mode that lets users shoot subjects as close as 2cm away.

On the battery side of things, Apple says that the iPhone 13 Pro will last 1.5 hours longer than the iPhone 12 Pro and that the iPhone 13 Pro will last 2.5 hours longer than the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

This year’s Pro and Pro Max colours include ‘Graphite,’ ‘Gold,’ ‘Silver’ and the new aqua blue-like ‘Sierra Blue.’

During the event, Apple also revealed the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. However, both of Apple’s lower-end smartphones don’t include a 120Hz refresh rate display.
