Apple had its annual new product launches yesterday. He introduced perhaps the smallest changes in history. Is the news so boring? Is it due to a pandemic and a lack of chips?
Much was expected from the new devices. The new iPhone was to bring a revolutionary satellite connection, mmWAVE 5G for the whole world or a complete “notch-free” design. The new watch was supposed to bring a new “Phone 12/13″ design. ” In the end, nothing happens. Let’s sum it up.
The iPhone 13 series will receive a new A15 BIONIC chip with a new 6-core main processor, a 5-core GPU processor and a 16-core neural processor.
The dimensions of the phones have changed slightly – they are thinner, but the innovations are again heavier than their predecessors, thanks to larger batteries that add about 1.5 hours of life compared to their predecessors. The iPhone 13 Pro, for example, weighs up to 204 grams and the Pro Max up to 240 grams, and that’s really enough for phones.
The displays remained virtually the same, but added support for up to 120 Hz and a variable refresh rate from 10 to 120 Hz. Apple called the technology ProMotion. A novelty is also a smaller notch by 20%, but even this time the battery icon cannot show percentages. If someone expected the end of the notch, they will be disappointed. The maximum brightness has been increased from 1000 to 1200 rivets.
The camera has been improved as every year. A big novelty is the ability of macros up to 2 centimeters for the Pro and Pro Max models. Night portraits and night telephones are also interesting. Both technologies use LiDAR. This feature should theoretically work on 12 Pro / Max, at least with third-party software. Cinematic mode will be supported by all phones, it is a smooth focus of objects during video recording. In addition, HDR, the so-called Smart HDR4.
The base model and the Mini model have a f / 1.6 camera and an ultra wide f / 2.4 camera. iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max, in turn, have a camera with an aperture of f / 1.5, ultra-wide camera with an aperture of up to f / 1.8, and the telephoto camera has f / 2.8. Higher models do not lack LiDAR support.
By the way, recording in the 4K ProRes video codec requires at least an iPhone 13 Pro with 256GB of memory. Importantly, Apple has reduced the differences between 13 Pro and Pro Max in terms of cameras to zero, because they are identical.
One may be interested to know that the iPhone 13 supports standard DS (dual-SIM) in the form of eSIM. You will probably be able to choose whether you want to use two eSIM or eSIM + physical SIMs. This has not yet been clarified. However, activation via WiFi and eSIM is already available in the official instructions on the manufacturer’s website.
You will be able to choose from several color variations. Mobile phones will be available in late September.
Apple also introduced the new generation Apple Watch Series 7. The new watch is larger but only a display. The company achieved this by reducing the frames. The upgrade can be interesting especially for owners of Watch Series 3 and older. They will be available in 41mm and 45 millimeters. The good news, however, is that the bracelets will be compatible from old models. The 41mm model will work with 38 / 40mm bracelets and larger with 42 and 44mm bracelets.
However, the expected “iPhone 12” design is not happening. The watch is officially dustproof and IP6X certified. Newly, they also support full-fledged text entry via a virtual keyboard.
Finally, Apple introduced the new iPad Mini 2021. The iPad Mini 2021 will have an 8.3 ”display with an A15 Bionic chip. New will be support for 5G or Apple Pencil 2. Touch ID has been moved to the top power button and a USB-C connector has been added. The 12MPx camera has also been improved. However, the relatively high introductory price will freeze compared to the previous prices of the Mini version.
The old refreshed iPad 10.1 ”with A13 Bionic will have a new price, which starts at 329 USD.
Conclusion and comment
The new operating system, with the exception of MacOS, will be released next Monday, September 20th. You can expect a summary in one of the future articles.
Anyone expecting big news will probably be really disappointed. The new iPhones bring only minor improvements and, apart from the battery and 120 Hz display, they have nothing to offer the XS, 11 and 12 Pro owners. The new iPad Mini 2021 looks like it wants to fight for its position again, unfortunately it kills with its price. The most interesting product from yesterday is the Apple Watch Series 7, which supports fast charging via USB-C or new dials. It can be said that Apple is also affected by the pandemic, and the news certainly signed it. The new iPhone should have been called 12S, because that accurately describes it.
