Apple has launched the iPhone 13 series today, 24 September 2021. Last year, the iPhone 12 series
was released in October/November, a month later than usual due to the new coronavirus infection.
This year, all models were released in September, the same as the iPhone 12 series. We'll be
reviewing two of these models, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro.

"What is the iPhone 13 series?
The iPhone 13 series has evolved in two main areas: the camera function and the chip. The iPhone 13
series is a minor upgrade from the iPhone 12 series, with a more compact display, a smaller notch,
and a longer battery life.

A familiar iPhone design
The design of the iPhone 13 series is almost identical to the iPhone 12. The design of the iPhone 13
series is almost identical to that of the iPhone 12: flat and simple, with vertical sides. The design of
the iPhone 13 series is similar to that of the iPhone 12 series.

The difference in appearance from the iPhone 12 series is the size of the notch on the front and the
camera on the back. The notch is 20% smaller, which means it's much smaller when you put them
side by side. The two cameras on the back of the iPhone 13 are now diagonally opposite each other
instead of in a single vertical line, and each lens on the iPhone 13 Pro is larger and more prominent.

iPhone 12 Pro on the left and iPhone 13 Pro on the right. The triple camera is more than half the size
of the iPhone 13 Pro, compared to less than half the horizontal size of the iPhone 12 Pro.

Textures are unchanged from the iPhone 12 series – iPhone 13 has a glossy glass and aluminium
frame, while iPhone 13 Pro has a smooth, matte glass and a shiny stainless steel frame. The front of
iPhone 13 Pro continues to use the durable, scratch-resistant Ceramic Shield, and it's IP68 rated for
water and dust resistance, making it one of the toughest phones in the industry.

These tough features are unchanged from the iPhone 12 series, but if you're replacing a three- or
four-year-old iPhone, such as the iPhone 8 or iPhone X, you'll be pleased to know that the toughness
has been increased.

iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini are available in (PRODUCT)RED, Starlight, Midnight, Blue and Pink.
iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are available in Graphite, Gold, Silver and Sierra Blue.

The main wide-angle camera has been improved! "Look out for Cinematic Mode!
The iPhone 13 Pro Max is available in Graphite, Gold, Silver and Sierra Blue. The iPhone 13 Pro, the
standard iPhone 13, the smaller iPhone 13 and the smaller iPhone 13 Pro all feature sensor-shift
optical image stabilisation, which was previously only available on the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The
iPhone 13 Pro, as well as the standard iPhone 13 and the smaller iPhone 13 mini, can now benefit
from image stabilisation.

And across all models, the wide-angle camera now has a larger sensor size, which means it can take
photos with less noise in low light. The super wide-angle camera also has a faster sensor, which is
said to reduce noise in the same way. "The A15 Bionic chip's power allows users to take better
photos without even thinking about it. With the power of the A15 Bionic chip, users can now take
higher quality photos without even thinking about it. The number of pixels remains unchanged from
the iPhone 12 series at 12 megapixels.

As you can see in the table above, there is no difference between the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13
Pro Max in terms of camera features: the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max have different focal
lengths for the telephoto camera and different image stabilization for the wide-angle camera. If
you're looking for the best camera, you'll have to choose between the iPhone 12 Pro Max and the
iPhone 13 Pro Max, but you can now choose between the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max

simply by screen size. The focal length of the telephoto camera has been increased to 77mm, a focal
length worthy of being called a telephoto.
