It’s about money: how much will the iPhone 13 cost?

In terms of pricing, the manufacturer remains true to its approach — everything is best for its customers. This is also reflected in the price of the model.

The price of 13 Pro Max starts at one thousand two hundred dollars (from thirty three thousand hryvnias).

What the iPhone 13 looks like: a request for elegance

Externally, the mobile phone continued the fashion for a square body, which was brought back into trend by the 12th iPhone. The dimensions of the phone are the same as the previous models. However, you won’t be able to stick on the old cover — Apple increased the size of the cameras and arranged them diagonally. In addition, the lenses are located not under the vertical ruler, but diagonally. The flashlight “moved” to the upper part of the camera unit.

But the front part of the mobile phone has slightly changed in design. The monobrow turned into a small droplet, which became 20% smaller. The iPhone 13 managed to shine in the new season of the series from Apple TV + “Ted Lasso”. There, the notch under the frontalka has become noticeably more modest than it was 3 years ago.

If we consider the colors of the new iPhone, the company decided to regain the style of “modern classics”. In addition to the usual black, white and red case, pink and blue appeared.

What will be the iPhone 13: differences from previous models

The main feature of the new iPhone is the absence of Lightning ports. So now you don’t need to buy a separate iPhone charger, a regular USB-C cable will do.

  key differences between iPhone 13 and previous models

A novelty with a universal USB-C plug, although Ming-Chi Kuo (the most popular Apple insider, who turns out to be right in 70-80% of predictions) predicts that the first devices without ports from Apple will not be before 2022.

It is noteworthy that users of the thirteenth iPhone will be in touch even where most mobile phones are not available. The phone is able to catch a mobile signal from satellites, which will make it a stylish and powerful replacement for large and weak, from the point of view of entertainment, satellite mobile phones.

Fans of wireless technology will definitely like the new reversible charging. Together with it, the mobile phone itself will be able to act as a small power bank for devices that support wireless charging: from headphones with a watch to other phones.

The iPhone received a display with a frequency update of 120 Hz. Now the picture will become even smoother. At the same time, it will not affect the operation of the battery. That’s why Apple “drag” for so long with changes in the display. Hertsovka will be dynamic. Depending on the task, it will change. When reading online, the frequency can drop to a minimum of 20-30 Hz, and in action games the display will show the maximum of its capabilities.

Chips and features of iPhone 13

Apple is very particular about the cameras in their mobile phones. And the novelty is not an exception to the rules. Four chips ago — as an argument:

  1. Improved stabilization with sensor shift as in iPhone 12 Pro Max — now it is in the entire 13th line. This will allow you to run while shooting without shaking in the video itself.
  2. Redesigned wide-angle camera in the Pro-series — even more objects in the frame with less distortion.
  3. Portrait mode when shooting video — the LiDAR sensor will separate the foreground from the background with surgical precision.
  4. The increased size of the cameras makes it possible to catch even more colors. Evening pictures will be good even without “night mode”.

iPhone 13 chips

The basic model will remain with 2 cameras of 12 MP each. Pro versions received a powerful 6-element wide-angle lens with an aperture of 1.8 and autofocus. Portrait photos will become even better, because now the LiDAR sensor is responsible for “understanding” the depth of the picture.
