Apple has officially announced its latest iPhone 13, the base and most popular model that defines the standard for the company’s 2021 range of phones.
Like last year, the iPhone 13 is available in two versions: the 6.1-inch regular model and the 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini.
The display Super Retina XDR is still an OLED panel and sides in aluminum are still sandwiched between two glass panels.
Pricing starts at $ 829 for the iPhone 13 and $ 729 for the smaller iPhone 13 mini. Storage options have been enhanced for quest’year, with the company offering 128GB, 256GB and 512GB configurations for the two models.
Pre-orders for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini begin Friday, September 17, before the release date of September 24.
And there aren’t many new features or drastic changes here. Instead, the iPhone 13 is closer to the older iPhone S model, offering some improvements to the design last year rather than huge new features.
But unlike the iPhone 12, which has seen a major redesign, the iPhone 13 has the same spacious look as last year’s model. But with Face ID’s bumper 20% smaller, which means it takes up less space at the top of the phone.
And there’s the more powerful A15 Bionic processor, which the company says is faster and more energy efficient than last year’s A14 Bionic chip.
It’s still a 5nm chip and it’s still a hexa-core CPU (with two high-performance cores and four high-efficiency cores). But the company claims it’s the fastest CPU in a smartphone, up to 50% faster than the competition. It also says that the graphics are up to 30% faster than its competitors.
The biggest change comes in the form of camera technology from last year’s iPhone 12 Pro Max. The iPhone 13 got the same improved camera that the company first introduced with its larger smartphone in 2020, with a 47% larger sensor for the wide camera than last year, which allows it to capture more light in dark environments with less noise.
The new wide-angle sensor is a 12 megapixel lens with an f / 1.6 aperture. While the 12MP ultra-wide camera features a faster f / 2.4 aperture and 120-degree field of view.
The iPhone 13 also has sensor shift stabilization technology that the company introduced last year with the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Which effectively moves the wide-angle sensor to reduce vibration.
The new cameras also have the benefit of the photo profiles the company introduced with the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max models.which allows you to further customize the look of your photos for greater consistency between your shots.
The company also introduced the new Cinema mode for videos, which allows the media’s focus effect to change focus during video.
While recording a video, Cinema mode automatically shifts the focus as you shoot in real time. Move in intelligently focus when people enter the frame or move away from the camera.
You can also change the focus manually or lock the focus on a specific object for more precise control. The front camera also offers support for cinematic mode.
The company also promises improved 5G performance over the iPhone 12, with increased band support for better international 5G experiences. The company also promises that the iPhone will support 200 operators in more than 60 countries and regions by the end of the year.
The new iPhone 13 line also offers better battery life. The iPhone 13 mini has a battery life of 1.5 hours in more than the iPhone 12 mini. While the iPhone 13 gets up to 2.5 hours longer battery life than the iPhone 12. This is thanks to larger batteries, better performance than the A15 Bionic, and further enhancements to the software.
