Last Tuesday, September 14, Apple released the next version of its popular smartphone, one of several devices launched at a virtual event held at its headquarters in Cupertino, California.
Other devices launched on Tuesday include: an updated cheap iPad, an updated version of the iPad Mini and the new Apple Watch Series 7 with a larger screen.
The iPhone 13 will have four models: a standard version with a 6.1-inch screen, a Mini model and Pro and Pro Max models with larger and longer battery-length screens.
The analyst of Wedbush, Daniel ives, he said this year’s launch has made several subtle improvements to the iPhone, which will remain popular because of the «repressed demand» from Apple’s new phones.
Features of the iPhone 13
The iPhone 13 will be available in five colors: red, starlight (a bleach tone), midnight (a black toneblue and pink. The two camera lenses on the back of the smartphone have been placed in diagonal.
Together with the typical updates of processing speed, screen and battery duration, the iPhone 13 adds a film mode, which uses the automatic approach to change the subject in a video, similar to the portrait mode for photos.
The new phone also means the arrival of iOS 15, which will be launched as a free software update on September 20. It will include FaceTime updates, a live text function in which users will be able to search for text within the images and an approach mode to manage their notifications.
What iPhone do you choose?
Here’s a quick summary of all the iPhone Apple will have available, with the iPhone 13 on the list, and its exit price:
- iPhone XS: $399
- iPhone 11: $499
- iPhone 12: $599
- iPhone 13: $699
- iPhone 13 Pro: $999
The iPhone 13 Pro is not cheap
A larger phone, larger screens, longer battery duration and a higher price. The iPhone 13 Pro starts at $999 and the Pro Max starts at $1,099. There is also a storage option for the 1 terabyte Pro. You can pre-order the four new iPhones from Friday. They arrive at the stores on September 24.
A big iPhone 13 Pro camera update
The camera is equipped with a new teletarget lens, super large angular and great angular. The photos with little light look brighter and clearer, the optical zoom will be improved and the system will allow macro photography to get detailed front of the objects. The smartphone will also have a night mode to take photographs without the right lighting conditions.
Users can also customize their cameras in photographic style. You can use predetermined templates, such as a rich contrast or vibrant warm colors, and change the warm tones and colors of your photos to create the specific aspect you want.
Apple has shown how cameras work by putting them in the hands of directors like Kathryn Bigelow. And here I’m wasting all this with my dog (but it’s still worth it).
As for battery duration, the 13 Pro last 1.5 hours longer than the iPhone 12 Pro and 2.5 hours more than the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
There is also an iPhone 13 Pro model
And as it couldn’t be otherwise, here comes the information about the Pro model of the iPhone 13.
The Pro comes in four finishes: graphite, gold, silver and saw blue. They seem to have a more metallic look compared to standard models. There is also the three-camera system in the back of the phone.
There will also be an iPhone 13 Pro Max, for Apple fans who love their big screens. Apple said it has the fastest chart processing of any smartphone, ideal if you like to play on your phone.
The Pro models will have a new Super Retina XDR screen, as well as ProMotion, which offers really high refresh rates and adapts according to activity. Translation: moving and sliding your finger on the phone will be more fluid.
The Pro will have a 6.1-inch screen and the Pro Max will have a 6.7-inch screen.
The iPhone 13 will start to cost $799
The iPhone 13 Mini will start at $699, while the iPhone 13 will start at $799. The technology giant is also increasing storage capacity, from 128 GB of storage, which is quite impressive. Both phones have a maximum of 512 GB.
It is also interesting to note that Apple has said nothing about a Pro or Plus model with a larger screen.
What is the duration of the iPhone 13 battery?
The big question I ask myself, like the rest of curious smartphone owners, is how long the battery will last. It works between 1.5 and 2 hours more than last year’s phones.
There is an intelligent data mode that will automatically change the 5G to LTE phone to help keep battery life.
What is the film mode?
As expected, the iPhone 13 is adding a new mode called «Cinematic mode,» which is essentially a version of the Retrator Fashion for use in videos.
The function is able to highlight and frame the key elements of a video clip, from the people or objects from the background to the closest to the camera.
The mode is anticipated when the clip’s approach changes. Apple said it studied the film used in the production of films to help design the mode. The mode will also fire at Dolby Vision HDR.
