The rumors were not wrong. This Tuesday, through an event previously recorded and subsequently broadcast in streaming, Apple has revealed all the details of its new iPhone 13. Four phones that not only have the mission of satisfying Apple customers during the next 12 months; they will also set the pace for the entire industry.
The two most advanced models in the new catalog are the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. These, as on previous occasions, share many elements with the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13. However, they bring with them a slightly more refined design, a more advanced camera and other additional features designed for the most demanding customers.
An example of this is the new screen with ProMotion technology, the LiDAR sensor located on the back, the possibility of recording video in portrait mode or video recording in ProRes, equivalent to the ProRAW format that the company launched with the iPhone 12 Pro.
What has changed on the outside in the iPhone 13 Pro and in the Pro Max version?
The exterior design of both the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max is quite similar to the previous generation. The sides are flat and made of stainless steel – unlike the other iPhone 13, whose sides are made of aluminum. The back is glass, but it has a matte finish. And the rear camera module, as in previous generations, is grouped in a glass square that forms a single piece with the coating on the back.
What has changed is the notch, which is now 20% smaller on both the iPhone 13 Pro and the larger variant. In this notch, let us remember, the sensors that make possible the facial recognition system (Face ID) and the loudspeaker for phone calls. We also have a new color, Sierra Blue, in addition to the usual black, white and gold.
Both mobiles, as in previous editions, are resistant to both water and dust. Their certification is IP68 according to the IEC 60529 standard. This is equivalent to 6 meter deep water dives for a maximum of 30 minutes.
The size of the screen also remains intact: 6.1 inches for the iPhone 13 Pro; 6.7 inches for iPhone 13 Pro Max.
What has changed inside?
One of the main novelties of this iPhone 13 Pro is found on the screen. This has ProMotion technology, the same that we find in the iPad Pro. The company ensures that the refresh rate can vary dynamically between 10 Hz and 120 Hz, adapting to the content on the screen to save battery when possible. This, in addition to improving the experience in certain specific applications, will make all the animations feel more fluid, enriching the user experience.
Screen enhancements don’t end there. The company also claims that the maximum brightness of the panel is now 1,000 nits, 200 more than the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. An improvement that will translate, among other things, to better visibility outdoors.
The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max also feature the A15 Bionic chip, much more powerful than previous models. The brand also highlights that the chip present in these models has one more core than the A15 Bionic of the normal iPhone 13s.
