IPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max feature 120Hz display, better cameras – TechCrunch

Apple has announced its new line of phones in its virtual conference. In addition to iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini normal, the company has two Pro models with some premium features that you won’t find on the regular iPhone 13.

Of course, the Pro models are also more expensive. For reference, the iPhone 13 Mini starts at $ 699 and the iPhone 13 starts at $ 799. As for the Pro models, the iPhone 13 Pro starts at $ 999 and the iPhone 13 Pro Max starts at $ 1,099. The iPhone 13 Pro has a 6.1-inch screen, while the iPhone 13 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch screen.

“Our Pro line pushes the boundaries with our most advanced technologies for users who want the best iPhone,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Here’s what you’ll get if you decide to buy the iPhone 13 Pro instead of the iPhone 13. The design is slightly different as the Pro models have shiny stainless steel bands around the phone case. There are also three stainless steel rings around the three camera sensors. The back of the device is made of matte glass.

There are three different camera sensors on the back of the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max instead of two. In addition to the ultra-wide and wide camera, you get a 3x camera. It seems that the wide and ultrawide cameras are not identical on the Pro models versus the regular models either.

Last year, only the iPhone 12 Pro Max featured optical sensor shift image stabilization. This time around, the entire iPhone 13 lineup gets optical sensor swap image stabilization. Basically the regular iPhone 13 gets a lot of the advanced camera features that were restricted to the Pro models.

In particular, there is a new rack focus cinematic mode. You can track a subject and lock focus on that subject in real time. Cinema mode is recorded in Dolby Vision HDR. Later this year, you will be able to record ProRes videos with the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max.

So this is what you get on the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Max:

  • A 77mm telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom.
  • An ultra-wide camera with f / 1.8 aperture and “up to 92% improvement in low-light performance,” according to Apple.
  • A wide camera with f / 1.5 aperture and “up to 2.2x improvement in low-light performance,” according to Apple.

For the first time, you can use night mode with all three cameras. This way you don’t have to remember which camera will give you the best result.

The iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max come with a Pro Motion display with P3 color gamut. Similar to high-end iPad models, these iPhone models have an adaptive frame rate. If you need it, your iPhone screen can work at 120Hz. If you are watching a movie, the iPhone may use a lower frame rate to save battery life.

Since the iPhone 13 Max is the largest smartphone in the line, you get more battery life. Apple promises a battery that lasts 2.5 hours longer for the iPhone 13 Pro Max compared to the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

Like the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini, the Pro models come with Apple’s A15 Bionic chip. It is a 5mm design with 15 billion transistors. There are two high-performance cores and four energy-efficient cores. You should get the same performances across the lineup.

Pre-orders begin Friday and will be available on September 24. There are four different models with 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB of storage.
