While the smartphone line is very similar to last year’s iPhone 12 family, the entire series features a smaller display notch, Apple’s A15 Bionic chip, a new video mode that allows for selective software-powered focus, battery life improvements and sensor shift camera technology.
The 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini and 6.1-inch iPhone 13 have specifically received upgrades to their wide and ultrawide cameras that should result in better quality images and improved low-light performance. This year’s base-level iPhone colours include the following: ‘Pink,’ ‘Blue,’ ‘Midnight,’ ‘Starlight’ and ‘Product Red.’
On the other hand, the 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max feature displays with a 120Hz refresh rate and, as usual, 2.5x and 2x optical zoom, respectively, through their telephoto lens.
This year’s Pro and Pro Max colours include ‘Graphite,’ ‘Gold,’ ‘Silver’ and the new aqua blue-like ‘Sierra Blue.’
Apple’s iPhone 13 line is set to be available on September 24th.
