An hour ago, on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 (September 23, 1400), Apple unveiled the new generation of the company's iPhones. The iPhone 13 series, like last year, consists of four phones, the highest level includes the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, and the lower level includes the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. The design of the new iPhones has undergone minimal changes compared to the iPhone 12 series, and many of the previous key items, including the peripheral flat edges (on all four phones) and the shape of the camera lens (on the Pro models), have remained unchanged. Among the new points in this series, we should mention the 120 Hz LTPO panel in Pro models and the battery upgrade in all models.
Due to the close similarities between iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max on the one hand and repetition For the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, we will examine the phones of each category together and separately from the other category, and we will point out the differences in their place. iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro
As usual, the highest specifications of this series of iPhone products should be sought in the Pro category, and especially the Pro Max model, which now has more fundamental changes compared to the two simpler members of this group. Introducing the iPhone 13 family - from iPhone 13 Pro Max to iPhone 13 Pro and from iPhone 13 to iPhone 3 mini ">
Design and appearance
The design of these two models has not changed much compared to the previous generation, and in the absence of Touch ID, which has long been absent in this series, it is clear We were faced with the same look as before with the full screen display and the triple cameras on the back. That's not the whole story, and as expected, the notch at the top of the screen and the TrueDepth camera system in this series have changed slightly, with Apple said to be 20 percent smaller.
Ribbon around the device in both iPhone 13 Pro and The iPhone 13 Pro Max is made of stainless steel, which Apple calls surgical-grade stainless steel. These strips are subjected to a physical process of vapor deposition to resist wear and corrosion in addition to achieving the appearance of Apple custom.
This series comes in four colors including graphite gray, gold, silver And a new blue color called sierra blue is introduced, which required a completely new and separate process to make the latter. In this process, according to Apple, "nanometer-scale metal ceramic particles" are applied to a surface to create a very durable yet beautiful result.
Triple cameras on the back of iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max inside The frame is made of stainless steel and the lenses are covered with resistant sapphire crystal. The frosted glass also stays in place and still conveys a wonderful feeling of holding a premium phone to users.
It also finds it harder and more durable than any other type of glass on the screen of other smartphones. The IP68 resistance standard of this phone has not changed and still, apart from the resistance to dust penetration, it offers the possibility of immersion in water (transparent with a depth of 6 meters for 30 minutes).
According to Apple, the interior design of the iPhone 13 The Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max have also been completely redesigned to support options such as brand new rear cameras, new screens, and a larger battery.
Length and width of iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max compared to Last year's counterparts, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, remained unchanged at 71.5 x 146.7 and 78.1 x 160.8 mm, respectively. The thickness of the two, however, has increased to 7.65 mm from 7.4 years ago. The difference in weight is even greater, and while the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max weighed 189 and 228 grams, respectively, last year, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max now weigh much heavier at 204 and 240 grams, respectively.
Processor and Memory
As expected, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, like the other two members of the family, will be powered by the new Apple A15 Bionic processor, which features two surface cores. High performance (high performance cores) and 4 lower efficiency cores (High Efficiency efficiency cores) are used and ISP, video encoders and decoders and a new neural processing engine can be seen in it.
in A15 Bionic structure present in iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max use new 5-core graphics, which Apple considers its most powerful graphics (at this level). Apple considers this graphic to be 50% faster than its leading competitors, and even goes so far as to introduce this graphic with the fastest performance among all smartphones, not only in advanced games but also to implement modern camera features such as Apple ProRaw. And 4K Dolby Vision video capture will also be an efficient tool.>
iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max screens are one of the most important attractions of this family; These screens, which Apple refers to as the Super Retina XDR, are still 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch, respectively, and have not changed in resolution from before (1170 32 2532 pixels on the iPhone 13 Pro and 1284 2778 pixels on the iPhone 13 Pro Max). But this time, for the first time, they are using LTPO technology, which not only consumes less power, but has also made up for one of Apple's constant shortcomings to date, namely the lack of high refresh rates. Both the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max support a variable 120Hz panel refresh rate, which Apple calls ProMotion, and this rate will vary between 10 and 120Hz depending on the content, thanks to LTPO technology, so that when needed, the image Make it smoother for users and save battery power when faced with static content.
According to Apple, this system is similar to the internal structure of iOS, for example when moving between applications or scrolling The page, the refresh rate is adjusted according to the speed of the users' finger on the screen!
Another noteworthy point in this category belongs to the maximum brightness of these two panels, which is 25% more than the previous year and in the form of dots The external environment reaches 1,000nits. The maximum panel brightness of these two models in HDR mode is also limited to 1,200 nits.
Main and selfie cameras
While at first glance we seem to be dealing with the same camera system as last year, but Virtually everything has changed, and as Apple puts it, "the biggest camera breakthrough to date" has taken place in the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max camera divisions. The main camera of these two phones, which is located at the bottom and outwards of the lens triangle, is a 12-megapixel model like last year, but the similarity of this camera with its previous generation ends here, because we are actually faced with a new camera in this phone. Not only is its f/1.5 aperture wider than f/1.6 last year, but its 1.9 micron pixels are much larger than last year's 1.7 micron pixels. These changes, according to Apple, will lead to 2.2 times more improvement in low light. The sensor of this camera, according to Apple, is the largest sensor ever used in iPhones.
The biggest update between the cameras of these two phones undoubtedly belongs to the ultraviolet camera of this series, which is accompanied by autofocus for the first time. The lens aperture of this camera has now reached f/1.8 from f/2.4 years ago, and the number of lens elements has increased from 5 to 6. According to Apple, this camera experiences a 92% improvement in performance in low light environments, and thanks to autofocus, it can capture macro or close-up images from a distance of very close to 2 cm for the first time on an iPhone. All three cameras in this area, including the telephoto camera, support night or night mode for the first time, and the LiDAR sensor is present in both phones this time.
Photographic Styles is one of the new software features introduced for this series, through which the individual tastes and preferences of individuals are used in the process of image formation and creation. In this case, before taking a photo, you must select one of the four styles available in the shooting menu (such as Rich Contrast for a more colorful look or Vibrant for a more prominent look) and change the elements of each one as desired. This style is stored separately and It can be applied to other images as desired.
The video capabilities of the cameras in this collection are also at a high level and once again, according to Apple, offer "the most advanced video features". Support for Dolby Vision HDR video capture is still on the list of features in this series, and some new features such as slow motion macro video capture with ultraviolet camera and 3x zoom while shooting with telephoto camera have been added to the previous feature of this series. Cinematic mode is another interesting feature of this series that provides different capabilities for capturing cinematic videos. In this case, it is possible to change the depth of field effect and the amount of image bokeh and focus even after taking the video, which according to Apple is seen for the first time in a smartphone.
ProRes Video Another new video feature iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, of course, will be available in the future; In addition to advanced encoding, this feature saves the size of the saved file, creating colors that are close to reality that can be used in advanced editing software such as Final Cut Pro. For this purpose, in the A15 Binic processor, the device is provided with a proprietary hardware accelerator for Prores, which in combination with other hardware components of the processor, allows the capture of 4K video up to 30 frames per second in this mode.
The phone's selfie camera, or as Apple calls it, the TrueDepth Camera, is the same as the previous 12-megapixel f/2.2, which can be filmed in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second.
Battery and Charger
Like other iPhone events this time around, there's no mention of the battery capacity used in the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, but more than 1.5 hours longer in the first (Compared to iPhone 12 Pro) and 2.5 hours more durability is mentioned in the latter (compared to iPhone 12 Pro Max). According to the manufacturer, the iPhone 13 Pro lasts up to 22 hours of video playback from memory, which is up to 28 hours in the Max version. Music playback from the memory of this two phones can last up to 75 and 95 hours, respectively. Apple considers the iPhone 13 Pro Max battery life to be the highest of all the company's iPhones.
Contrary to previous predictions, there is no change in the charging power of the phones in both wired and wireless modes, and still with the same previous 20 watts as wired, 7.5 watts as normal wireless (Qi technology) and 15 watts with MagSafe battery They charge the phone. The 20-watt charger for these two phones (which of course does not come with the box), according to Apple, can charge up to 50% of the battery capacity after 30 minutes.
Apple, as every year, once again spoke about the environmental considerations in the production of these two phones, and did not say that this time, too, under this pretext, we should not expect the presence of a charger in the box of the device. This time, it has been removed, but it belongs to the plastic around the box of the phone, which, according to Apple, will lead to not using 600 tons of plastic!
Price - Time to market
The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro are priced at $ 999 and $ 1,099 last year for 128GB of base memory. Pre-orders for these two phones started this Friday, September 17 (September 26, 1400), and their presence in the market has been postponed to next week, September 24 (October 2, 1400).
iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini
The two iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini models, like the Peru family, have experienced fewer design changes and more changes to their internal structure.
The first new point in the design of these two phones was the oblique lenses on the back, which was one of the first leaked points in the design of the new generation iPhone during the past months. The camera lenses of the two handsets are placed diagonally in front of each other and have a more symmetrical appearance.
The perimeter frame of these two phones is made of aluminum or as Apple says" aerospace- grade alumium, which is in a lower position than the two Pro models with stainless steel bodies. The Ceramic Shiled screen protector is present on both screens, and Apple, as before, considers it stronger than any screen protector glass among smartphones. The IP68 standard for resistance to dust penetration and immersion in water (clear with a depth of 6 meters for 30 minutes) is still repeated in these two models.
One of the interesting points about the design of these two The phone belongs to the side antenna lines, which according to Apple are the first in the industry to be made with recycled plastic bottles!
Once again similar to the Pro models, the internal parts of iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini are completely redesigned The main purpose of this was to open space for more powerful and newer batteries of these two models.
Like the Pro versions, the TrueDepth camera system at the top of the screen has been reduced by 20%, giving more screen space. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini are available in five colors including Pink, Blue, Black, White and Red Product Red.
Measuring 7.4 x 64.2 x 131.5 mm, it is only slightly larger in thickness. This situation is exactly the same on the iPhone 13, and with the length and width remaining the same at 146.7 and 71.5 mm, respectively, its thickness has increased from the previous 7.4 to 7.65 mm. These two phones have apparently become heavier and heavier due to the battery, and their weight has increased from 135 and 164 grams to 141 and 174 grams. 5.4 and 6.1-inch OLED screens called Super Retina XDR display The two phones have not changed on paper and still have a resolution of 1080 2340 pixels in the smaller version and 1170 2532 pixels They are available in a larger version. 2,000,000: 1 contrast, DCI-P3 color gamut display, and support for HDR10, DolbyVision, and HLG on both panels have not changed, but their maximum brightness has been improved to 28% from 625 nits in the previous generation to 800 nits. has done. The maximum brightness of these two panels in HDR mode, of course, is 1,200nits as before.
This chipset in the field Machine learning has also appeared to be powerful, with a 16-core neural processing engine being discussed. The set is capable of processing 15.8 trillion operations per second, which is a very large number, but compared to its Android rival, the Snapdragon 888 with 26TOPS processing power and the Snapdragon 888 + with 32TOPS power on paper, it offers much less power. . P>
Both iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini models are offered in three memories of 128, 256 or 512 GB, and thus not only the 64 GB version is no longer known, but also the new 512 GB memory for this series in Will be available.
