And after a lot of leaks & speculations, Apple has launched the most awaited smartphone of the year, the iPhone 13 series. This series consist of four models just like last year. This time we haven’t seen any “revolutionary” upgrade or new thing in any iPhone 13 model. All we get are some specs upgrade and some minor polishing changes here & there. So without further ado, let’s have a look at the iPhone 13 series.
iPhone 13 & 13 Mini :
Starting off with the cheapest & vanilla models, the iPhone 13 & 13 Mini are really not so different from iPhone 12 & 12 Mini. The major upgrade is probably the all new A15 Bionic processor, which Apple claims to be the fastest smartphone chip till date. The display is also exactly same 6.1-inch and 5.4-inch with typical brightness bumped up to 800 nits from previous year’s 625 nits. Good thing now is that the base storage is 128GB instead of 64GB. And it can go all up to the 512GB.
In camera also there’s nothing much new, just the OIS from main camera is replaced by IBIS. It’s basically a sensor shifting stabilization. So it’s still an hardware based tech but seems better than OIS. Also the positioning of cameras on both devices has changed a bit. Apple claims that the Mini will have 1.5 hours more battery life and the vanilla one will have 2.5 hours more. Both iPhone 13 & 13 Mini will come in Midnight, Blue, Starlight, Pink, and Product RED color options. And the notch size is now smaller as well
iPhone 13 Pro & 13 Pro Max :
Now comes the turn of two big premium most iPhones. Just like the other two, the A15 Bionic will house these two beasts making both the most premium and powerful smartphones. The display got a much demanded feature this time i.e. 120Hz refresh rate. Apple marketed it as “ProMotion Display”. And the typical brightness is increased to 1,000 nits. Otherwise displays on both are same, with same size and same resolution and same tech as their predecessors. And the notch is 20% smaller this time around.
Now the biggest upgrade of both Pros is the camera. Though the resolution is still Apple’s beloved 12MP for all three sensors, the sensor quality is improved with some new useful features. The main sensor now has big 1.9μm pixel size and f1.5 lens, which will improve the low light photography even more. The telephoto lens can now zoom up to 3X optically, thanks to new 77mm f2.8 lens. The Ultra wide angle lens is also improved 6 elements f1.8 lens with autofocus. And thanks to the autofocusing, the ultra wide sensor can shoot Macro shots as well.
The Night mode is now supported for telephoto lens as well. Regarding video recording, we now have support for recording ProRes videos (Apple’s professional video codec), which is used by studios and production house. Dolby Vision HDR video now supports 60fps even on 4K. Most interesting feature this time around is changing focus after the video is being recorded (by mapping the depth with ToF 3D LiDAR). The front has that same 12MP sensor as last year with 3D sensor for face unlocking.
The storage options for both are 128/256/512GB and also for the first time, 1TB as well. Both comes on Graphite, Silver, Gold, Product RED, and all new Sierra Blue color options.

And these are the iPhone 13 series smartphones. Honestly, it’s a minor upgrade from the iPhone 12 series last year and there’s no major point in choosing iPhone 13 over the 12. And as the iPhone 12 pricing will slash, it’s better to buy the same. What are your thoughts on the iPhone 13 series? Let us know in the comments below.
