Apple announces iPhone 13

2021-09-15 17:22 by


Apple has launched several new products, including iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, iPad mini and Apple Watch Series 7, during its annual September event, according to company press releases on Tuesday (Sept. 14).

The iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max have better battery life, faster A15 Bionic processors, smaller display notches, upgraded cameras, and, when it comes to the Pro models, high refresh rate 120Hz ProMotion displays.

The iPhone 13, 13 mini, Pro, and Pro Max support the widest array of 5G and LTE frequencies of any iPhone, but globetrotters should be aware that there's a subtle difference in the models sold in different countries.

Apple's new iPhone 13 and 13 Mini mark the official end of the 64GB iPhone era: the company has effectively doubled the storage capacities for its 2021 models while keeping prices the same, so the new smartphones now start with 128GB of storage with options for 256GB and 512GB. (For those who require more space, the iPhone 13 Pro models offer up to 1TB.)

Because Apple's doubling your storage while keeping the starting prices the same ($829 for the iPhone 13 and $729 for the 13 Mini) those entry-priced phones are also a better deal than before. Last year, customers looking for the cheapest new iPhone got stuck with 64GB of storage, to the point it almost made more sense to just get a $999 iPhone 12 Pro (which came with 128GB from the start) instead of paying $879 to get that same capacity in the regular iPhone 12.

Despite hopes that a smaller notch would mean more space for it, iPhone 13 will not display a battery percentage. And that's a real bummer.

The new iPhones all have a smaller notch that should allow for Apple's iOS to display a battery percentage at all times. And while it does appear that there is space, the Xcode Simulator suggests that even on an iPhone 13 Pro Max, Apple isn't giving us what we want. iPhone 13 Pro Max might be the best iPhone ever made - but it's still missing a feature many would love to see.
