All the best new features you should know about
Apple has unveiled its next round of devices in the form of the iPhone 13 series. But how does the new model compare to the iPhone 12?
We knew this was going to happen and we weren’t disappointed. During the Apple California Streaming event, we received the official presentation of the newest iPhone.
As many pre-launch rumors and speculations have suggested, the iPhone 13 is not a radical step forward – at least on paper. Instead, it’s a small update that changes certain details and adds a number of the iPhone 12’s most obvious missing skills.
If you’re wondering if it’s worth updating an already excellent iPhone 12 to a newer model, you’ve come to the right place. Here we will compare the specifications and features of the devices – for a deeper study, be sure to check them out after we have fully tested the new phones and delivered the final verdict.
When the iPhone 12 debuted last year, it cost £ 799 for the 64GB model. With the iPhone 13, the price has dropped to £ 779 for 128GB of storage.
One of the biggest improvements in the iPhone 13 is the camera stack. While the megapixel count is still 12 and there are two sensors left (for the third you’ll need the Pro), there are plenty of upgrades.
First, there is the same sensor-shift stabilization we first saw on the 12 Pro Max. There’s also a new f / 1.6 lens and larger pixels inside the wide-angle sensor. All of these benefits should dramatically improve the quality of low-light photography.
Next, there are new video features. Cinematic Mode has titled these new additions and will let you add a touch of Hollywood glamor to your videos with automatic tracking, panning and zooming.
At this stage, it is often difficult to judge the increase in battery life, since we have not yet reviewed these new devices properly.
Apple claims the iPhone 13 has a larger battery than the iPhone 12 and more efficient components, although its only endurance claim is all-day battery life.
Charging is still done through the Lightning port, and support for MagSafe accessories was introduced last year. Regular Qi wireless charging also remained.
The screens of these phones have a lot in common. Both are OLED panels measuring 6.1 inches and have Ceramic Shield on the top.
With the iPhone 13, you get a smaller notch and a display that’s 20% brighter and can hit 1200 nits in certain video instances.
A brighter display is always welcome and should be especially handy for outdoor viewing and HDR video viewing. A smaller notch is also very welcome, even if we would rather remove it entirely.
If you want ProMotion’s new 120Hz refresh rate, you need to pick up your iPhone 13 Pro.
Inside the iPhone 13 is the new A15 Bionic chipset, replacing the A14 Bionic in the iPhone 12. Both are 5nm chips, but the new model has more transistors (15 billion to be exact) and an updated processor, GPU, and neural system. Engine.
Apple did not directly compare the A15 and A14 during the show, but reported that the processor was 50% faster and the GPU 30% faster than its “competitors.” We will of course run all of our standard performance tests when we get the chance to personally test these phones.
Base storage has doubled from 64GB to 128GB, which is very good, and a 512GB option has been added as well.
The iPhone 13 also has more 5G bands than before, giving it broader 5G support in more areas.
After a major redesign of the iPhone 12, the iPhone 13 will always feel very familiar. The biggest differences here are the choice of new colors (pink, red, blue, black and Starlight), the new rear camera layout, and the smaller notch we mentioned earlier.
While the width (71.5mm) and height (146.7mm) are the same, the iPhone 13 is heavier (173g vs. 162g) and deeper.
