Camera programs on the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max are the same this year, which means you don’t have to buy a bigger and more expensive phone to get the best photos. And even the best photos, because there is no other phone on the market like the iPhone 13 Pro. Apple’s marketing of the camera system on 13 Pro is “the biggest development ever.”
The 13 Pro has a 12-megapixel f/1.8 wide-angle and f/2.4 telephoto cameras. The telephoto camera allows up to 2X optical zoom and image stabilization, a feature that has been around on phones like the iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8 for years. Both rear cameras have optical image stabilization and autofocus. It has a better and more refined Portrait mode, where you can adjust the lighting. Apple says the aperture is actually wider than the f/1.8 on the iPhone X. The front-facing camera has also been improved. It now has the wide-angle lens on the front, but with an aperture of f/2.2 instead of f/1.8. If the iPhone XS Max had one big advantage, it’s the TrueDepth camera.
We already knew about the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack, and it’s good to see that Apple has made the necessary steps to retain the OLED screen. After all, if you want to work on a screen, you need a headphone jack. The display is, as always, gorgeous. The company has added the True Tone feature to it, which makes whites even whiter, and it’s perfect for watching movies or playing games. But be aware that with the removal of the headphone jack, you’ll need to buy a pair of headphones that are Bluetooth. The iPhone’s native screen-to-body ratio is the highest of any smartphone on the market. That means you can literally see the display going all the way to the edge of the device.
The other big feature is ProMotion, which is the movement of the display at 60Hz. Apple claims that the result is “four times faster than that of previous generations.” This is extremely important. We know that the screen on the iPhone 6 was pretty good, but it wasn’t the fastest on the market (that honor belonged to the Huawei Mate 8). We also know that while the 5S screen was still fast on most phones, it fell down on phones with OLED screens like the Samsung Galaxy S6. I think ProMotion is the reason behind the S6’s better screen. The screen on the iPhone 13 Pro measures 5.9-inches. It has two components. The “full Retina display” is at a higher resolution, with more pixels.
While its headline feature is all about the camera, 13 Pro is also a powerhouse on a chip, and the thinnest ever. I should know, I used to run iPhones (but now iPhone XS Max) in a lab. I started with an iPhone 8 Plus, which had plenty of power but was bulky and didn’t look as good as other phones. The iPhone 8 Plus could handle a 13 hour work day, but it was inefficient and a bit annoying, with very slow processor, long lags, and lots of unnecessary sounds and heating. The iPhone XS Max is the fastest phone on the market right now, but it isn’t that much faster than the iPhone X in every other way. For instance, the iPhone XS Max has a more efficient processor and performs well in most tasks, though I experienced a number of lags and stutters on the 7th-gen, 5-hour battery.
The iPhone 13 Pro will cost $1,099, £1,099, and AU$1,699, according to Apple. You can also get an iPhone XR for the same price with less storage, and a lower-resolution screen, and a second-year-free of the same Apple Care included in the phone’s price. The iPhone Pro max is the same price, but with double the memory. It will cost $1,249, £1,249 and AU$1,799. If you want more memory and a larger screen, the iPhone Pro gets the upper hand on the iPhone 13 Pro, but the 13 Pro is the better deal for the cash. Overall winner: iPhone Pro. In the sub-$1,000 phone category, this one gets the nod because of the dual cameras. The iPhone 13 Pro does stand out for its low price, but its best feature is not nearly as new and as unique as the iPhone 13 Pro’s.
The iPhone 13 Pro is expected to be released in November. Price Currently, there are two models of iPhone 13. The entry-level model has 256GB of internal storage for $1,099. If you’d like more storage, Apple sells a 512GB model for $1,249. That’s about $100 extra than the 512GB iPhone Xs Max, and $200 more than the 256GB iPhone XR. That price includes AppleCare+. The iPhone 13 Pro has many improvements over the iPhone Xs and Xs Max, including a nearly bezel-less edge-to-edge display. The rear camera is improved, as is the front camera. The phone is about the same size as the Xs, but thinner. Phone Comparisons As I said earlier, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max have very similar specs and a nearly bezel-less edge-to-edge display.
The iPhone 13 Pro is a design that was marketed a year ago but whose sales had been muted up until Apple finally released it in December, as the new device gets a pretty warm reception by critics. It’s not a perfect phone, and it may not be for most people, but it’s a great device that stands as a good alternative to a full-fledged laptop for those who want a larger display but still want a phone that can do everything they need. The iPhone 13 Pro is a winner.
