iPhone 13 (Pro) Introduced: Everything You Need to Know About Apple s New Phones

The iPhone 13 is here: Apple presented the latest generation of its cult cell phone at its "California Streaming" event this evening. The Pro models in particular have functions that many Apple users have wanted for years. There is a positive surprise in terms of prices.

In addition to the Apple Watch Series 7 and the iPad Mini 6, the new iPhone 13 naturally played the main role at Apple's event, which again did not take place live due to the corona. Instead, the US company showed a previously recorded video in which Tim Cook and other Apple managers presented the new products.

The star of the show was of course the new generation of iPhones. Apple has presented a total of four new iPhone models:

iPhone 13 iPhone 13 Pro iPhone 13 Pro Max iPhone 13 Mini

iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini: New camera, smaller notch

The appearance of the new iPhones has changed little compared to the 12 generation. The biggest innovation is a slightly shrunk notch, which should now be 20 percent narrower. The camera module has also been redesigned: the sensors are now arranged diagonally. The 12 MP dual camera (wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle) now lets in 47 percent more light and is based on a larger sensor. The focal length is f / 1.6.

The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini also inherit the SensorShift optical image stabilization from last year's Pro models . The so-called "Cinematic Mode" is also new. This is an automatic focus change when recording video.

A lot has also happened under the hood: the heart of the iPhone 13 is the new A13 Bionic processor, which has a new 6-core CPU. According to Apple, the A13 Bionic is up to 50 percent faster than the smartphone competition. A plus of 30 percent is promised for the graphics performance, a new 4-core GPU does its job here. The Neural Engine, which now has 16 cores, has also been drilled out.

The display in the new iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini should shine up to 28 percent brighter compared to the 12 generation . The brightness is specified with 800 nits, in the absolute peak there are even 1,200 nits. In terms of size and resolution, nothing has changed compared to the previous generation.

Thanks to a larger battery, more energy-efficient hardware and optimizations between hardware and software, Apple promises a better battery life. The iPhone 13 is said to last 2.5 hours longer than its predecessor, and 1.5 hours for the iPhone 13 Mini.

iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max: 120 Hz display and new storage options

The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max offer all the innovations that the standard version of the iPhone 13 has. In addition, the Pro versions offer a so-called ProMotion display with a variable refresh rate between 10 and 120 Hz for an even smoother display. IPhone users have been waiting for this for a long time.

In addition, the A13 Bionic has a 6-core GPU in the Pro models. Apple promises the fastest graphics unit in a smartphone. The biggest differences apart from the ProMotion display lie in the cameras. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max have a triple camera with 12 MP each on board:

12 MP (wide angle, f / 1.5) 12 MP (ultra wide angle, f / 1.8 + 120 ° field of view) 12 MP (telephoto lens, f / 2.8)

The new triple camera allows an optical zoom range of up to 6 times and now also enables macro photos for recordings that are particularly close to the lens. According to Apple, the wide-angle camera is based on the largest image sensor that has ever been installed in an iPhone. This should reduce image noise and shorten exposure times. Also included: ProRes video. The new Pro models in the iPhone 13 line now support Apple's professional video format. And: All cameras now have night mode on board.
