As iTech experts, we ensure that once you touch the new iPhone 13, you will cry out, ‘Eureka’. That’s how you express your ecstasy when you create and discover something new and novel. Apple, this time, launches the brand new iPhone 13 series including iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, and iPhone 13 Mini with modifications on A-15 Bionic system-on-chip, a better camera, improved video recording system, and undeniably a better battery life.
iPhone 13 capacity and color
iPhone 13 is available in multiple colors starting from red, starlight, midnight, blue, pink. It comes equipped with a ceramic shield front and glass back. What looks more scintillating is the aluminum cover design. Its storage capacity ranges from 128 GB. If you are fond of more storage capacity, a certain hike in the price can provide you with 256 and 512 GB.
This phone has a bright and vibrant 6.1-inch OLED screen, but only with a 60Hz refresh rate. The A15 Bionic SoC offers more than enough power for games and heavy applications. The cameras are versatile and offer great quality for both photos and videos, and you get the same cinema mode and photo-style features as the more expensive iPhone 13 Pro. Battery life is good. iOS 15 ensures that everything runs smoothly.
As for the hardware of the camera itself, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max come with new sensors and lenses for all three rear cameras. The resolution remains unchanged – that’s 12 MP – but the wide camera uses a larger sensor with 1.9 µm pixels and sits behind a wider f/1.5 lens for low-light photos up to 2.2 times better than the iPhone 12 Pro and almost 1.5 times better than iPhone 12 Pro Max. Sensor shift Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) is standard on both iPhones pro this year.
The ultra-wide-angle camera also features a larger f/1.8 lens and autofocus, bringing dedicated macro photography to the iPhone for the first time. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max can also record macro videos with Slomo and Timelapse settings. The telephoto lens is refreshed with a new 7mm lens, although it has a smaller f/2.8 aperture compared to the iPhone 12 Pro/Pro Max. We will look at these cameras in detail in the coming days, as it can now be said that there is a lot of promise here.
When it comes to the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini, the story here is also about the overall sophistication to keep the basics constant. This means that the iPhone 13 is still a 6.1-inch iPhone, while the iPhone 13 Mini has the same 5.4-inch screen as last year’s model. Apple hasn’t changed the design much, other than changing the alignment of the rear camera – perhaps this is to accommodate the larger sensor on the main camera.
We’re still looking at basically the same glossy glass back, ceramic front, aluminum sides, and IP68 water and dust resistance. Again, the proportions are slightly higher than last year to accommodate even larger batteries, which should benefit the mini. Apple claims the iPhone 13 lasts up to two and a half hours longer than the iPhone 12, and the iPhone 13 Mini is up to an hour and a half longer than the iPhone 12 Mini on a single charge.
There are updates across the board that make sense and finally bring the iPhone up to date in almost every sense of the word. Apple seems to have doubled down on video recording, while also opening up its signature style to allow for more granular customization when it comes to photos, which we’ll be testing in detail in the coming days.
