Yep, it's that time of the year again. Apple recently introduced their new lineup of the iPhone 13 series and I'll explain a summary of all their new features in this article.

So without further ado let's start with the iPhone 13 and 13 mini, they both come in new colours such as starlight white, midnight black a new shade of blue, pink and red. The 6.1-inch and 5.4-inch displays2 feature Ceramic Shield on the front, exclusive to iPhone and tougher than any smartphone glass. Both models have an industry-leading IP68 rating for water resistance and are designed to protect against spills from common liquids.

The first thing you might notice about its design is the diagonal camera layout which you may assume Apple changed in order to differentiate these new models but they actually needed to rearrange the camera lenses to fit a larger wide-angle sensor, which means it comes with better low light photos and a feature called sensor-shift. This was previously only available on the 12 Pro Max. it stabilizes the camera sensor instead of the lens for even greater image stabilization and photo quality, especially on the standard wide-angle lens which captures 47% more light.


There's also a completely new video recording feature called cinematic mode, which automatically creates depth effects and focus transitions similar to those found in real movies. You can even adjust the depth effect after the video is recorded which by the way is captured in Dolby Vision HDR. This allows for a wider range of colours, brightness and contrast, while Smart HDR-4 now recognizes up to four different people in a scene and optimizes the contrast, lighting, and even skin tones for each one.

A new feature for photos is something called Photographic Styles Which create a personal look for your photos, but unlike regular filters styles, it selectively applies adjustments to the right areas, while preserving skin tones. The best part about these new photo and video features is that they’re available on the selfie camera as well.

Now perhaps the iPhone 13’s biggest design is its notch which is 20% smaller than before Although you still won’t be able to see the battery percentage number without swiping down. Speaking of battery, the iPhone 13 Mini has one and a half hours more battery life than the 12 Mini, while the iPhone 13 has two and a half hours more than the iPhone 12.

The processor on these phones has been updated to the A15 Bionic chip which features 21% faster processing than the iPhone 12, and 15% faster graphics. While the base storage on the 13 and 13 mini has doubled From 64GB to 128. Apple also equipped this year’s models with more 5G bands, which means faster speeds in more places. The 13 mini starts at $700, while the iPhone 13 starts at $800.



Now, let’s talk about the pricier iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max models. The 13 Pro starts at $1000, while the 13 pro max starts at $1100. With each model featuring a maximum capacity of one terabyte for the first time.

They include all the previous features we covered, plus some advanced extras like a new Super Retina XDR display with ProMotion which doubles the display’s refresh rate from 60Hz to 120Hz, resulting in silky smooth animations and scrolling. Macro photos and video are also coming to these Pro models in addition to improved night mode on all three lenses with the telephoto lens now featuring 3x optical zoom.

Video can be recorded in ProRes format, which is a standard widely used in professional settings, but even with these new features, the pro models also achieve extra battery life. One and a half hours more on the iPhone 13 Pro, and two and a half hours more on the 13 Pro Max. Due to the larger batteries, all four of these iPhone models are thicker and heavier than the previous generation.

The bottom line is that the iPhone 13 is no doubt a phenomenal phone and raises the bar for what you think a camera phone can do. But aside from that, there is no major difference from its predecessors. Will you be getting the new iPhone's?
