Today Apple executives took the stage in a virtual streaming event to announce the new flagship line of iPhones. The iPhone 13 is official.

The housing looks similar to last year, but the cameras in the basic model are now arranged at an angle. This year, Apple is reducing the size of the front display notch, which still has all the usual Face ID sensors, but is now 20% smaller.

The new display in the basic model is branded “Super Retina XDR” and is 28 percent brighter at 800 nits. It comes in 5.4 and 6.1 inches.

There is also the new SoC, the A15 Bionic. There is a six-core CPU with two performance cores and four cores with low energy efficiency, which, according to Apple, is “the fastest CPU in every smartphone, up to 50 percent faster than the leading competition”. The new four-core GPU is up to 30 percent faster than the competition, and the 16-core Neural Engine can handle 15.8 trillion operations per second.

A new “cinematic” mode for video brings a rack focus effect to the camera that allows the camera to smoothly change focus from a foreground object to a background object during a video. You can tap the screen to lock focus on two different objects and switch between them. Of course, a phone doesn’t have the lens to actually do this – it’s an AI effect, like a dual-object portrait mode.

According to Apple, the entire phone has been redesigned to accommodate “new technology” while using a larger battery. Apple wouldn’t give exact sizes, but it says the iPhone Mini is up 1.5 hours from last year and the base iPhone is up 2.5 hours.

The iPhone 13 Mini starts at $ 699 while the iPhone 13 costs $ 799. Both start at 128GB (an increase from last year) with 256GB and 512GB storage tiers.

That covers the base model, but there is also the big iPhone, the iPhone 13 Pro, to talk about. As with the basic model, the interior has been completely redesigned for a larger battery and the A15 bionic. The Pro model upgrades the A15 to a five-core GPU, which Apple claims is the fastest GPU in any smartphone.

For the first time in the iPhone series, the Pro models have a 120 Hz display. High-end Android flagships and Apple’s own iPad Pro have already offered this feature, but the new display should feel and look more responsive than the 60Hz displays the iPhone previously contained. There is also dynamic scaling of the display frame rate to save power when viewing a still image or video: the display can be shut down to 10 Hz. Like last year, the Pro is 6.1-inch and the Pro Max model is 6.7-inch.

The three rear cameras are all new, with Apple promising brighter and sharper images. The included specifications were a 77mm telephoto lens with a 3x optical zoom, an ultra-wide angle lens with an aperture of f / 1.8 and a “92 percent improvement in low light” and a main lens with an aperture of 1: 1.5, 1.9 “μm pixel size and” 2.2x improvement in low light “. There is a macro mode for close-ups and every camera now also has a night mode.

The Pro series also supports Apple’s ProRes video format, a widely used format for high definition video in professional environments. You can record in ProRes, the A15 Bionic has hardware acceleration for ProRes, and then you can edit everything seamlessly in Final Cut Pro.

The iPhone 13 Pro lasts 1.5 hours longer than the iPhone 12 Pro. The iPhone 13 Pro Max lasts 2.5 hours longer than the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

The iPhone 13 Pro is priced at $ 999 while the 13 Pro Max is priced at $ 1099. There’s a new 1TB storage option that’s a fourth tier after 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. Every iPhone will be pre-ordered this Friday, and the phone will ship on September 24th. Apple didn’t mention the launch date for iOS 15 on its show today, but a website is updated for September 20th.
