Everything You Need To Know About the Apple iPhone 13
Apple launched the iPhone 13 series on September 14, 2021, during its California Streaming event. The company did not change the design of its high-end iPhones this year as the company had introduced a new design just last year with the iPhone 12 series, and it usually follows the same design for up to three years in a row. Apple has introduced new features and better hardware, though. The company launched four new iPhones this year: iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. You can read all about them in our article below and check out our hands-on video of the iPhone 13 Pro and our detailed review of the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Most importantly, the company has brought a new processor, the Apple A15 Bionic, a 120Hz high-refresh-rate OLED display with a slightly smaller notch, improved cameras, and bigger batteries. It also introduced the Cinematic Video camera mode for depth-of-field effect. The company has also introduced faster charging for some iPhone 13 models.
Apple iPhone 13 Specifications, Features
Starting with the design of the iPhone 13, the company hasn’t changed the design much. As you can see in our hands-on video above, the iPhone 13 series has a design that is similar to the iPhone 12 series, which means flat metal sides, frosted glass finish at the rear, and a bezel-less OLED display at the front. The company has reduced the size of the display notch by 20%, offering more screen real estate.
