Apple is showing new products tonight under the motto “California Streaming”. In addition to the iPhone 13, Apple has presented a new smartphone. As in the previous year, there are again four models from the iPhone 13 mini to the iPhone 13 Pro Max. You can find out what new features the iPhone 13 has to offer and when it will be available here.
As expected, Apple presented a new smartphone, the iPhone 13, at this year’s September event. Based on the design of the iPhone 12 from 2020, the exterior of the new Apple cell phone appears at first glance with only minor changes.
Bigger camera and different colours
The more obvious changes include the camera hump that has grown again and the new colours. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 1 3 mini are available in rose, blue, midnight, polar star and product (red). The Pro models are now available in Sierra blue, silver, gold and graphite. The Pacific blue of the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max is no longer there.
Under the hood, Apple has hidden various innovations with which they want to entice users to upgrade. In addition to a new display, with a smaller notch for the first time, there are improved cameras on the rear. Interested customers of the Pro models can also opt for a version with up to 1 TB of internal storage.
iPhone 13 Pro: Apple fulfills a long-avaited wish
Apple’s model range is reminiscent of the previous year, like the design and general dimensions. It still starts with an iPhone 13 mini with a 5.4-inch screen. This is followed by the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro with 6.1-inch displays. The flagship is the iPhone 13 Pro Max with a 6.7-inch screen.
With the new smartphones, however, Apple is fulfilling a great wish of users. The Pro models now have a display with ProMotion. In concrete terms, this means a jump from 60 Hertz to now 120 Hertz. However, the frequency can be variably controlled by the operating system, for example, to save power if the screen content does not change.
Inside the iPhone 13, Apple’s A15 chip now works across all models, replacing the A14 from the previous year’s model. Unsurprisingly, the company is again talking about improvements in the performance of the CPU, GPU and the neural engine. As mentioned earlier, Apple has expanded the internal storage of all iPhone models. For example, all variants are offered with at least 128 GB. For the two Pro models, there is also a version with up to 1 TB of storage.
New cameras for all four iPhones
You can fill all this space with still and moving images thanks to the new cameras. For example, the portrait mode known from photos is now also available in videos recorded with an iPhone 13. The blurred background, which is artificially created by the system, can no longer only be found in photos. This feature is hidden in the new “Cinematic Mode”.
At the same time, professional filmmakers with an iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max can look forward to the support of ProRes in up to 4k with 30 frames per second. The codec gives filmmakers more freedom in post-production. At the same time, however, the use of the format means a greater memory requirement. If you want to use ProRes, you should use an iPhone with more internal memory. The new function will appear in the coming months – similar to what ProRaw did last year.
For better ultra-wide-angle shots, Apple has now also donated autofocus to this camera in the Pro models. Until now, the extremely wide-angled camera had to do without this technology. This also enables a macro mode that can be used for photos and videos. All three cameras of the two Pro iPhones now also support night mode.
Apple has also donated new cameras to the regular iPhone 13 and 13 mini. The standard camera should now bring 47% more light to the sensor. At the same time, the sensor-shift technology known from the iPhone 12 Pro Max is also available in cheaper smartphones this year.
iPhone 13: Pre-order from September 17th
In terms of price, the new product range starts at £679 for the iPhone 13 mini, which is now 128 GB. The regular iPhone 13 with 128 GB costs at least £779. The entry-level prices have remained the same, but you now get 128 GB as standard instead of the 64 GB with the iPhone 12 and 12 mini.
If you want to have an iPhone 13 Pro delivered to your home, you have to pay at least £949. Apple charges a whopping £1,049 for the Pro Max. This also corresponds to the prices of the predecessor. For the full equipment of the flagship with 1 TB, Apple charges £1,549.00.
