The supercharged iPhone 13 is here

Apple’s new iPhone 13 debuted at Apple’s event on 14th September, giving us a tweaked design with a variety of new features. The new range consists of four new phones which will run iOS 15, come with a larger battery, more storage, a new A15 Bionic processor, a smaller notch and an abundance of new camera features.

The base model of the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini are available in five colours: pink, blue, midnight (black), starlight (white) and Product Red. The iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max will also get a giant camera upgrade as well as a new display with 120Hz high refresh-rate display.

The 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini is the successor to the iPhone 12 mini, while the 6.1-inch iPhone 13 is the replacement for the iPhone 12. Both new iPhone 13 models are nearly identical in design to the iPhone 12 models, featuring flat edges, an aerospace-grade aluminium enclosure, a glass back, and a slight increase in thickness (7.65mm). The iPhone 13 models are available in Pink, Blue, Midnight (black), Starlight (silver/gold), and (PRODUCT) RED.

How many iPhone 13 models are there?

Apple’s iPhone 13 line-up includes four phones, just like last year’s iPhone 12. The iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max differ in size, price, storage options and several key specs and features. All four models of the iPhone 13 are available to pre-order starting Friday, 17th September 2021 and will ship starting on 24th September.

What colours does the iPhone 13 come in?

What is the iPhone 13’s screen size?

The four iPhone 13 models have the same size screens as the iPhone 12 series. The iPhone 13 Mini has a 5.4-inch display, the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro have a 6.1-inch screen, while the iPhone 13 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch display. All the new phones have brighter screens.

How long does the iPhone 13 battery last?

One of Apple’s big promotions at the event was that the iPhone 13 has a bigger battery and they have announced this is their longest battery ever on iPhone. Apple said that the new battery along with iOS 15, the A15 chip and updated display adds 2.5 hours of battery life to the iPhone 13 (compared to the iPhone 12). The iPhone 13 Mini should get 1.5 hours more than the iPhone 12 Mini which is a significant uplift and proof again that the Mini is small but mighty.

Apple says that the Pro models should see a similar increase in battery life with the iPhone 13 Pro getting 2.5 hours more and the 13 Pro Max getting an additional 1.5 hours.

How good are the cameras on iPhone 13?

The iPhone 13 and 13 Mini get an updated camera system. Apple says the new orientation is a result of making more room for a new sensor-based stabilisation system — which previously was only on the iPhone 12 Pro Max. (The cameras on the iPhone 12 were stacked vertically.) All four models get an improved 12-megapixel main camera and a better ultra wide lens and sensor. The new hardware, along with the new A15 Bionic chip, means a handful of improvements and new features, including being able to capture 47% more light.

The iPhone 13 Pro has a new triple-camera system with better lenses and sensors. The telephoto lens comes with 3x optical zoom, which is 1.5x longer than the camera on the iPhone 12 Pro and 1.2x longer than the tele lens on the 12 Pro Max.
