Apple provides the Iphone 13 family with longer battery life and 120 Hz screen

It has become something of a tradition that Apple holds an annual court in mid-September, where new Iphone models play the main role. Last year, the company made an exception to the schedule, but now they are back on track with the message. In addition to updates in the Ipad and Watch family, the company is releasing four new phones, which reuse the same angular format as the previous Iphone 12 family.

The four new units are Iphone 13, 13 Mini, 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, where some upgrades permeate the entire lineup. Under the hood, Apple has messed up a bit to make room for larger batteries to extend the battery life by at least 1.5 hours compared to each predecessor. As expected, the system circuit is updated to the Bionic A15, which are six-core units with two new high-performance and four fresh energy-efficient cores. Apple states that the functions for machine learning and artificial intelligence are focus areas with the system circuit, which can be used, for example, to improve images.

Among the news is also a reduction in the flip pen on the front, which since the launch of the iPhone X has been used for face recognition and the front camera. The area is now declining by 20 percent, but the screens’ sizes are unchanged compared to the previous generation. Also unchanged is the enclosure class IP68, which applies to all four phones.

Variable and high frame rate is the parade number with the Pro models

In the top flagship class, the refresh rate of 90 or 120 Hz has become standard alongside 5G, but when Apple released the Iphone 12 last year, only the latter was included. Now the first part also enters the stage, but in the form of a variant that Apple calls Promotion, which is a variable frame rate in the range 10-120 Hz. The company describes that this approach adapts the frequency to the content, which saves energy.

Energy saving is on the schedule in several places, where the 5G function also gets a slap in the face. When the high speeds that 5G can provide are not necessary, Apple mentions that the phones switch to a less energy-hungry 4G / LTE connection. This also applies to the devices without Pro-suffix. In addition, the recent A15 Bionic system circuit is described as a more energy-efficient variant than last year’s version.

The Iphone 13 Pro has a 6.1-inch OLED screen, while the big brother Iphone 13 Pro Max steps up to 6.7 inches. The resolutions are 2,532 × 1,170 and 2,778 × 1,284 pixels, respectively. The screens have a typical maximum brightness of 1,000 cd / m² (nits) and can with HDR content step up to 1,200 nits. The phones are surrounded by stainless steel frames and under the shell you can see the A15 Bionic system circuit with five graphics cores, up from four for the two slightly simpler phone siblings.

The Pro models are also distinguished by the three cameras on the back, a trio consisting of sensors of 12 megapixels with lenses in wide-angle, ultra-wide angle and telephoto format. Up to 6 × optical zoom, a 120 degree wide field of view and apertures up to f / 1.5 are visible among these specifications. Macro photography is a new feature that the telephoto lens should be capable of, while the raw video format ProRes is in progress. The cameras are accompanied by the lidar sensor, which debuted last year. The camera on the front is also a 12-megapixel variant with an aperture of f / 2.2.

The battery life of the two phones is compared to their respective predecessors, where the Iphone 13 Pro Max will beat the predecessor on the fingers by 2.5 hours. Apple exemplifies battery life by streaming video for 25 hours. The smaller Pro model beats last year’s by 1.5 hours and can stream video for 20 hours. Charging takes place via the Lightning connection or wirelessly with Qi or Magsafe, which are specified for a maximum power of 7.5 and 15 watts respectively.

Larger battery with Iphone 13 and 13 Mini

The two simpler Iphone 13 models retain most of the previous generation, but with incremental improvements on several points. This is especially noticeable in the presentation image where Apple compiles the devices’ news. The maximum brightness of the screens is turned up to 800 nits, but just like with the Pro phones, the resolution and size are unchanged from the respective predecessors.

This means 2,340 × 1,080 pixels over 5.4 inches for Iphone 13 Mini and 2,532 × 1,170 pixels at 6.1 inches with Iphone 13. In both cases, these are OLED panels, which despite 28 percent higher brightness are a more energy efficient variant. This is one of the components of the longer battery life that is promised, which on the larger of the two phones should be 2.5 hours longer than on the Iphone 12. This translates to 15 hours of streamed video, while the small model stays on 13 hours of streaming . At least 1.5 hours longer than the Iphone 12 Mini is Apple’s promise.

On the back, the phones are equipped with dual cameras of 12 megapixels, which change orientation from vertical to diagonal. The wide-angle camera is equipped with optical image stabilization and for the entire Iphone 13 family, Apple releases the video mode Cinematic Mode. With image recognition, the camera can automatically lock focus on people in the image, and shift focus during filming, which according to the manufacturer provides a more cinematic video quality.

2021 is not the year when Apple deletes the last physical connection with the Iphone, nor is 2021 the year when the company switches to USB Type-C. Lightning hangs on and is continued to be accompanied by magnetic Magsafe which holds a wireless charger and any accessories in place. Maximum power for charging stays at 15 watts, while normal Qi charging does not go higher than 7.5 watts.

New colors but unchanged price picture

It’s not just the angular design that is inherited from the Iphone 12 family; The iPhone 13 variants borrow exactly the same physical dimensions. In terms of weight, however, all devices are slightly heavier, where for the Iphone 13 Mini it is only 5 grams, while the Pro variants are 10 grams heavier.

Iphone 13 and 13 Mini mix aluminum frames with glass backs, where some of the classic colors see replacements in the five options blue, red, pink, black and white. The iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max instead use a stainless steel frame, which, however, assumes the same colors as the backs. Specifically, there are the options blue, silver, gold and gray.

New for this generation is that the storage space for all models starts at 128 GB. For the simpler duo, there are 256 and 512 GB as optional upgrades, while Pro-suffix adds 1 TB to the configuration list. The starting price for Iphone 13 Pro and big brother is SEK 12,295 and SEK 13,495 respectively, where the latter with 1 TB storage is the family’s most expensive product with a price tag of SEK 20,195. 128 GB storage on Iphone 13 and 13 Mini costs SEK 9,795 and SEK 8,595 respectively. Iphone 12, 12 Mini, 11 and SE remain in the range.

All phones can be pre-ordered from 17 September and will be delivered on 24 September. In conclusion, it can be added that Apple, as expected, continues on the wrapped track not to send with chargers. The included Lightning cable connects to a computer or charger with USB Type-C.

Are you going to upgrade to an Iphone 13 model? Which phone are you investing in and which one do you currently have?
