DESIGN AND DISPLAY
All four versions of the iPhone 13 are lightly thicker and heavier than their counterpart in last year's lineup, but with a smaller notch. Apple has included a notched display on every iPhone since the 2017 iPhone X, as a place for the selfie camera. In March Kuo predicted that the iPhone 13 will have a smaller notch than its predecessors. At the event, Apple confirmed that the iPhone 13's notch is 20% smaller than it was on the iPhone 12.The standard iPhone 13 and Pro models are both 6.1 inches and the Pro Max is 6.7 inches.Apple iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will be available in four colour new finishes and metal side bands. Phone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will be available in four stunning finishes, including graphite, gold, silver, and the all-new sierra blue. The front of the phones has a ceramic shield for screen protection as well as IP68 rating.
The iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max models both feature a 120Hz display, as predicted by Kuo in March. Apple seems late to the game, since other high-end smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S21 and OnePlus 9 Pro, already have a 120Hz refresh rate. The number of hertz a phone screen is able to display refers to its number of frames per second, which determines how fast and smooth the screen feels when you're scrolling through apps and web pages
The display is a Super Retina XDR display with 1,000 nits of brightness.
The cameras on the new iPhone Pro phones have been kept mostly unchanged from last year, albeit some changes to make them better. The triple camera set has the telephoto, ultra wide and wide sensors.To personalise camera profiles, Apple is bringing Photographic Styles to adjust camera settings automatically. On the video front gets Dolby Vision HDR for high-quality results with the cameras on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone Pro Max.
ProRes video with more colour fidelity and more efficient encoding will be brought to the devices later this year. It will make the Pro devices capable of delivering end-to-end workflow.Sensor-shift optical image stabilisation (OIS) — unique to iPhone — is available on both models, stabilizing the sensor instead of the lens, so images are smooth and video is steady, even when the user is not.iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max also offer popular features like Deep Fusion, Apple ProRAW, and Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting.
A15 Bionic in the iPhone 13 Pro lineup is even more advanced, offering impressive power and efficiency, and driving the incredible new display, camera, and video features never before possible on iPhone. With 5-nanometer technology, A15 Bionic — the fastest chip in a smartphone — features a new 5-core GPU in the Pro lineup that brings the fastest graphics performance in any smartphone, up to 50 percent faster than the leading competition, ideal for video apps, high-performance gaming, and the slate of new camera features. The new 6-core CPU with two new high-performance cores and four new high-efficiency cores, is up to 50 percent faster than the competition and handles demanding tasks smoothly and efficiently. A new 16-core Neural Engine capable of 15.8 trillion operations per second enables even faster machine learning computations for third-party app experiences, as well as features like Live Text in Camera with iOS 15. And major advancements to the next-generation ISP provide improved noise reduction and tone mapping.
A15 Bionic, more power-efficient components, a larger battery, and power optimizations made possible by the tight integration of hardware and software enable amazing all-day battery life 6 hour for both Pro models, with iPhone 13 Pro Max offering the longest battery life ever in an iPhone. iPhone 13 Pro will last up to one and a half hours longer in a day than iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max will last up to two and a half hours longer in a day than iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The world is quickly moving to 5G, and iPhone offers an advanced 5G experience, transforming the way users connect, share, and enjoy content. The customized hardware design in the iPhone 13 lineup features more 5G bands, allowing it to work in more places on 5G for greater coverage and performance. Users can experience higher-quality video streaming on their favourite platforms, more competitive gameplay in multiplayer games, faster download and upload speeds, and so much more. With iOS 15, SharePlay7 on 5G will unlock powerful shared experiences such as watching HDR movies or TV shows in sync with friends while on a FaceTime call. And Smart Data mode will intelligently conserve battery life by automatically shifting iPhone to LTE when 5G speeds aren’t needed.

When it comes to storage capacity, you’ll be shocked by its variants. The basic variant is still the same combined with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. The other higher variants come in 256GB, 512GB, and up to 1TB storage, which is remarkable for any smartphone. Apple is able to provide these features. Although there is no microSD card, you will adopt the variants it already offers.
There has been a rumor about the satellite calling feature, but unfortunately, the iPhone 13 series phone does not support any satellite calling feature. As we move into the future, Apple is improving every day with a definite release.
These iPhone 13 Pro Max models also imply the same. Some of the brilliant and powerful features make the phone more interesting. Even the A15 bionic chip that supports 15 billion transistors is an improved version of the A14 that supports 11 billion only. Video quality has been improved with very advanced image processing and improved lenses.
When we buy an iPhone, Apple’s next phone certainly makes us greedy because of its vastly improved specs. Therefore, we cannot control ourselves not to buy the best. Many of us are addicted to buying an iPhone. If you’re an iPhone fan too, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is the ultimate version.
