The launch of the iPhone 13 series. Surprise or disappointment?

iPhone 13 Pro
iPhone 13 Pro

During the "California Dreaming" virtual meeting, Apple introduced the iPhone line of smartphones for the next year. Is it possible to speak of disappointment?

Apple smartphones haven’t been surprising for years. Each subsequent generation is actually an evolution of the previous one, and the introduced changes and new solutions are quite predictable. This is also the case this year.

The iPhone 13 series smartphones don’t differ significantly from their predecessors. To see the differences, you have to focus on the details. The fastest - we will notice a slightly smaller screen notch. It is still large by current standards, but invariably hides the advanced Face ID facial recognition system that protects access to the device. You can also notice a different arrangement of lenses on the rear cameras. The heart of this year's iPhone models is the Apple A15 Bionic chip with two performance cores and four energy-saving cores, as well as a quad-core graphics chip and a 16-core Neural Engine system. All new iPhones have metal and glass housings with an IP68 tightness certificate.

The series is divided into four models: iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. The iPhone 13 mini is of course a compact and budget model, the most different in specification from the rest of its brothers. At the same time - as the name suggests - it remains the most compact. It has an OLED screen with a diagonal of 5.4 inches and a resolution of 2340x1080 px. The iPhone 13 has an OLED display with a diagonal of 6.1 inches 2532x1170 px. iPhone 13 Mini and iPhone 13 are equipped with two 12-megapixel cameras - the main one with f/1.6 aperture and the wide-angle one with f/2.4 aperture and a field of view of 120 degrees. Selfie cameras are also 12-megapixel with f/2.2. The equipment is complemented by stereo speakers, but Apple traditionally didn’t provide battery capacity. It is known, however, that they charge by wire with a power of 20 W or more, or wirelessly - 15 W in the MagSafe standard or 7.5 W in the Qi standard.

iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are a more advanced pair. They received OLED displays with diagonals of 6.1 and 6.7 inches, respectively, and resolutions of 2532x1170 and 2778x1284 px. Both iPhone Pro also have triple cameras. The set described above is joined by another 12-megapixel camera, this time with a 3x telephoto lens and f/2.8 aperture. The other two cameras also have other lenses - in the main aperture the aperture jumps to a great value of f/1.5, and in the wide-angle one - to f/1.8 with a constant field of view of 120 degrees. The camera is also supported by a LiDAR sensor, used in portraits.

Along with the new iPhone models, the next generation of Apple smartwatch also makes its debut. Apple Watch Series 7 displays have grown compared to previous generations - although the dimensions of the watches remained unchanged. This is due to the narrowing of the bezel around the screen. As a result, the screens have sizes 41 and 45 instead of the previous 40 and 44 mm. In addition, the watches retained the previous battery performance (up to 18 hours of operation), while gaining even faster processors and dial designs. In terms of the ability to monitor activity, not much has changed. There will be a new on-screen keyboard, as well as a new colour version. The watches will be compatible with previously available straps.

The new iPad 10.2 was also presented. The device has an A13 Bionic processor and is - according to assurances - 20% faster than its predecessor. The iPad retains the TouchID fingerprint reader, and the display remains Apple Pencil compatible. The frames of the screen remained wide as before, but a new 12 Mpx camera appeared above the screen - allowing you to improve the image quality during video calls. The rear camera, in turn, is 8-megapixel. Another novelty is the new generation of the iPad Mini. The device has gained a more modern look, with a narrower screen frame without the home key. The TouchID sensor has gone to the side of the housing, and the display has a size of 8.3 inches. The compact tablet is equipped with two 12 Mpx cameras and - interestingly - a USB-C port.
