Apple last night unveiled its new iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max — powered by a six-core A15 Bionic CPU that enables 15.8 trillion operations per second, a lanky notch, and a 120Hz ProMotion display.
The good thing is the devices have a slightly reduced notch, by about 20 percent. Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro will come with 1TB of storage for the first time with a starting storage capacity of 128GB and 512GB.
The rear camera on the new device has also been improved compared to the iPhone 12 with an increase in size, making it by far the largest camera unit ever featured on an Apple device. All three cameras support Night mode, which was not the case with the previous iPhone modules.
Apple claims these new rear camera setup will enhance the wide-angle and telephoto shots as well as night mode. The primary camera has been upgraded to f/1.5 aperture, the largest sensor on an iPhone, with the ultra-wide now at f/1.8 aperture.
Screen sizes on both devices remain unchanged, a 6.1 inches and 6.5 inches on the 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, respectively. The company claims it has increased the battery life in these devices — one-and-a-half-hour longer battery life on the iPhone 13 Pro, and a two-and-a-half increase on the 13 Pro Max as compared to the iPhone 12 Pro series.
The new iPhones will launch in four colors — Graphite, Silver, Gold, and an all-new Sierra Blue option. The latter replaces the iPhone 12 Pro Pacific Blue shade.
Pricing stays the same, starting at $999 for the iPhone 13 Pro and $1099 for the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Quite understanding considering no major feature has been added to the iPhone 13 Pro lineups.
Pre-orders start on Friday, with units available to customers on 24 September.
