iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro: Less notch, more Hz, A15 and larger batteries

    The from Apple The iPhone 13 family presented in the evening will be launched on the market in the four known sizes: iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Common to smartphones are smaller Face ID notches, the A15 Bionic, new ones Cameras and larger batteries. The Pro models come with ProMotion for up to 120 Hz.

    The three well-known sizes from the previous year

    Apple adopts the form factors known from the iPhone 12 with 5.4 inches, two 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches and introduces visual changes elsewhere. In all four smartphones, the area of ​​the notch, which accommodates the sensors for Face ID, the front camera and the loudspeaker for making calls and for audio playback, has been reduced by 20 percent, leaving a little more space for the OLED display in the left and right right upper area of ​​the front is created. Face ID is still the only biometric option for logging in. According to the (ultimately unfounded) rumors, Touch ID embedded in the display did not make it into the devices.

    These are iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini

    New arrangement of the dual camera

    Apple has slightly adjusted the layout of the cameras in the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13, both of which still have two lenses instead of three, but which are arranged diagonally opposite one another instead of vertically on one axis.

    The OLED display manages 800 cd / m²

    With the display, Apple now adds up to 800 cd / m² in normal operation and up to 1,200 cd / m² in HDR mode with a higher brightness. The new OLED panel should have a higher energy efficiency and thus be able to maintain the maximum brightness for a longer period of time.

    A15 Bionic mit Quad-Core-GPU

    Under the hood is the A15 Bionic, a new 5 nm chip developed in-house by Apple that has 15 billion transistors. The SoC is equipped with a total of six CPU cores, two of which are performance cores and four are efficiency cores. Apple states a lead of 50 percent in the area of ​​CPU performance compared to the fastest chip in the competition. Apple's latest GPU has four cores and is said to be 30 percent faster than the best chip in the competition – five GPU cores are active in the Pro models and in the new iPad mini.

    Apple has also accelerated the neural engine for machine learning tasks to 15.8 TOPS. Apple does not make a direct comparison to the predecessor, which may have a reason: As the statements on the performance of the A15 Bionic in the new iPad mini can be seen, the CPU is standing still. It remains to be seen whether Apple couldn't get faster or didn't want to go faster.

    Cinema mode with shallow depth of field

    The A15 Bionic also has a new image processor that enables features such as the new cinema mode for video recordings with a shallow depth of field. In this mode, that supports Smartphone an intelligent shift of focus, for example from the foreground to the background and vice versa. The iPhone 13 should anticipate dynamic changes live during the recording and adjust the image accordingly. If a recorded person looks in the foreground towards the background, this movement is recognized and converted into a focus shift. This process also works in the opposite direction. Manual intervention and tracking of marked objects is also possible. iMovie for iOS allows you to adjust the focus level afterwards. iMovie and Final Cut Pro for macOS should support the “later“Get submitted later. In cinema mode, the iPhone 13 (mini) records in up to Full HD with 30 FPS, in normal video mode it is 4K60 including Dolby Vision.

    Cameras capture more light

    There are no new photo modes, but Apple has revised the hardware. iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 come with a new wide-angle main camera, which with 1.7 μm pixels and f / 1.6 aperture is supposed to capture 47 percent more light with the same exposure time. 100 percent of the pixels are used as focus pixels for fast autofocus. For the first time outside of the Pro series, there is sensor shift stabilization directly on the sensor instead of in the lens – also with the iPhone mini. The wide-angle lens still has a focal length of 26 mm in 35mm format, while the ultra-wide-angle camera with f / 2.4 aperture is still 13 mm. Image processing is handled by an improved Smart HDR 4 and Apple's Deep Fusion.

    Longer battery life

    Both new versions are equipped with larger batteries, for which Apple specifies up to 1.5 hours longer runtimes for the iPhone 13 mini and up to 2.5 hours longer for the iPhone 13. The total running times for video offline, video streamed and audio are given as 17 hours, 13 hours and 55 hours for the smaller version and 19 hours, 15 hours and 75 hours for the larger model.

    Start am 24. September ab 799 Euro

    The iPhone 13 (mini) is available in five colors: rose, blue, midnight, polar star and (PRODUCT) RED. Apple plans to take orders this week on Friday from 2 p.m. German time and start selling on September 24th. The iPhone 13 mini starts with 128 GB instead of 64 GB and costs from 799 euros. For the iPhone 13, also with 128 GB, Apple calls for 899 euros.

    These are iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max

    iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are also equipped with the A15 Bionic, but Apple now distinguishes between two different binnings for the iPhone after the M1: 4-core GPU in the non-Pro and 5-core GPU with 50 Percent higher performance than the best chip in the competition, only for the pro smartphones.

    ProMotion OLED with 10 Hz to 120 Hz

    The faster GPU is intended for games with 120 FPS, for example. With the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, Apple is introducing ProMotion for the first time in its own smartphone, which was previously reserved for the iPad Pro. Apple works with an adaptive refresh rate of 10 Hz to 120 Hz, which adapts dynamically to the content displayed. Apple also takes into account how quickly the user navigates through content and adjusts the refresh rate accordingly in order to save energy. ProMotion is accompanied by a brighter OLED panel with a smaller notch that takes up 20 percent less space. The panel can work permanently with 1,000 instead of 800 cd / m² and in HDR mode 1,200 cd / m² are offered as before.

    Large pixels and macro for both Pro models

    Only the two Pro smartphones are equipped with three instead of two rear cameras. While last year only the larger iPhone 12 Pro Max was equipped with the largest sensor for the main camera, there are now 12 megapixels with 1.9 μm pixels for both smartphones. In conjunction with the more open, fixed aperture of f / 1.5, Apple wants to be able to capture 120 percent more light for photos and videos. The focal length of the primary camera is again 26 mm. 92 percent more light is mentioned for the new ultra-wide angle camera with f / 1.8, the new 13 mm lens is also designed for macro photos and macro videos. The minimum focus distance of this camera is 2 cm. And with the new Tele, Apple has increased its focal length from 2.5x to 3.0x optical magnification at f / 2.8 with a focal length of 77 mm. In terms of stabilization, there is Sensor Shift for the main camera and a classic OIS for the new Tele, which now also offers a night mode.

    Video recordings in ProRes format

    In addition to the cinema mode, videos will be added, which will also be recorded later in the year with the format developed by Apple ProRes can be recorded for lossy compressed video data. The aim is to offer an end-to-end pro workflow from the iPhone to apps such as Final Cut Pro to output in professional productions. ProRes recordings are then made without Dolby Vision and are possible with a maximum of 4K at 30 FPS. ProRes is likely to be a real memory hog, because Apple limits the feature to Full HD with 30 FPS on the 128 GB models. ProRes and cinema mode are also available for the smartphone's front camera.

    Bigger batteries for professionals too

    Apple also advertises longer runtimes for the two iPhone 13 Pros: up to 1.5 hours more for the iPhone 13 Pro and up to 2.5 hours more for the iPhone 13 Pro Max. The total runtimes for video offline, video streamed and audio are included 22 hours, 20 hours and 75 hours for the smaller version and 28 hours, 25 hours and 95 hours for the larger model. Charging can be wired or again via MagSafe with a maximum of 15 watts or 7.5 watts via the Qi standard. With a cable, 50 percent capacity can be restored within 30 minutes using a 20-watt USB-C power supply unit that is not included, says Apple.

    Start from September 24th also with 1 TB

    Pre-orders for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will be possible from September 17th, the new smartphones will be available from September 24th in the colors graphite, gold, silver and sierra blue and with storage capacities of 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and for the first time also 1 terabyte. The starting price of the iPhone 13 Pro is 1,149 euros, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is 1,249 euros.
