Apple today revealed four new iPhone models, similar to the iPhone 12 series from last year. While all of the new iPhone 13 models offer new features, the new iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max have a feature that Apple fans have been waiting for: a high-refresh-rate display.
Apple iPhone 13 Pro & Pro Max Specifications
The new iPhone 13 Pro versions include a 120Hz ProMotion display that varies between 10Hz and 120Hz, but their screen sizes are the same as the previous models. The iPhone 13 Pro sports a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display, while the iPhone 13 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch screen.
The pro variants, including the iPhone 13 Mini and iPhone 13, have slightly reduced notches. The ceramic shield sheet that Apple claims are harder than any smartphone glass also protects it.
The two phones are powered by the Apple A15 Bionic processor, which delivers improvements to the CPU and GPU. Even with its older chipsets, Apple didn’t miss an opportunity to suggest that competitors are still catching up.
The camera on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max has been significantly improved. There’s a new 12MP f/1.8 ultrawide angle camera with a 120° field of view, and this sensor can also snap macro images (at 2 cm), exactly like certain Android phones.
But Apple doesn’t stop there. It also has the ability to record macro videos in slow motion and time-lapse mode. This sensor also collects up to 92% more light than previous sensors.
A 12MP f/2.8 telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom (6x optical zoom range across the system) and 15x digital zoom is also included. In addition to being able to shoot in Night Mode, this sensor joins the ultrawide angle and wide-angle cameras.
The 12MP f/1.5 wide camera boasts the largest sensor on an iPhone, gathering 2.2x more light, and when shooting in Night Mode, it uses the LiDAR Scanner.
Apple has added new video-shooting tools like Cinematic Mode, which alters the focus while filming a movie. Users will be able to select, change, and even lock the objects that the camera should focus on.
However, when a human enters the frame or looks away from the camera, the camera switches to an automated mode that shifts the focus. The front TrueDepth camera, as well as the rear wide and telephoto cameras, will include this feature.
Photographic Styles is another intriguing tool that adds your favorite photography style (tone and warmth) to your images while leaving the skies and skin tones alone.
The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, like their siblings, include a lightning connector. However, the battery life has improved – the Pro Max now lasts 2.5 hours long and the Pro lasts 1.5 hours longer.
The maximum power for wired charging is still 20 watts, while the maximum power for MagSafe wireless charging is 15 watts. A Qi wireless charger can still be used, although it will charge at a reduced rate of up to 7.5W.
Sierra Blue, Silver, Gold, and Graphite will be available in the iPhone 13 Pro versions.
They’ll also come in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB capacities.
