iPhone 13

For its standard iPhone 13—generally presumed to be the iPhone model for most users—Apple announced no major overhauls but a series of useful updates. The iPhone 13 will stick with a 6.1-inch OLED display, but will get a 28-percent boost in brightness to 800 nits. There will also be a slight increase in usable screen space from a 20-percent reduction in the display notch.

On performance, Apple announced a faster chip, the A15 Bionic, featuring a six-core CPU and four-core GPU. The A15 is also expected to help with battery life—with the iPhone 13 capable of getting up to 19 hours of video playback, compared to 17 hours on the iPhone 12. The battery size for the iPhone 13 has also been increased, Apple said.

Like its predecessor, the iPhone 13 will offer support for both types of 5G connectivity (sub‑6 GHz and mmWave).

For the cameras, the rear dual-camera system on the iPhone 13 includes a new Wide camera featuring a larger sensor, which can bring in as much as 47 percent more light, Apple said. Another camera upgrade comes from the inclusion of “sensor-shift” optical image stabilization, which had previously only been available in the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The sensor-shift OIS “stabilizes the sensor instead of the lens so shots are more steady,” Apple said in its release. The positioning of the rear cameras has also changed on the iPhone 13, with the cameras now placed diagonally instead of horizontally as on the iPhone 12.

One additional noteworthy upgrade for the iPhone 13 is the starting storage capacity of 128 GB—double the starting storage of 64 GB for the iPhone 12.

The starting price for Apple’s iPhone 13 is $799 (the same as on the iPhone 12). Pre-orders begin Friday, with shipping to start on Sept. 24.
