iPhone 13

Image

Image

Same ceramic shield front on the glass, with IP68 water resistance

Image

Notch is 20 percent smaller, we are told.

iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. More advanced display, 28 percent brighter. 800 nits, 1200 nits HDR peak brightness.

A15 Bionic, it's super duper mega fast

A15 is a 5nm part. 6 core CPU with 2 high performance and 4 efficiency cores.

Image

Image

New "cinematic mode" for video that allows rack focusing

very impressive, but you have to see it, they change focus on the same shot from front to back of a scene, and it can do it automagically

iPhone 13 has battery life, we are told. 90 minutes longer for iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 2.5 hours longer than iPhone 12.

iPhone 13 mini starts 699, iPhone 13 799. Starting at 128GB storage, adding 512GB option.

New magic photo filters... I don't understand applying those before taking pics, but ok

I am tempted to upgrade my 11 pro max to the sierra blue 13 pro max. I love the promotion display in particular.

I like the way the iPhone13 is a bit of a return to a iPhone4 look. The 4 was always the best looking iPhone.

Not even duct tape will fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound.

I agree. I like the hard edges.

Now they just need to get the power button back where it should be.

YES! The iPhone 4 design is far superior to the curved look. I was so happy when they went back to the more squared off design with the 12.

I miss not having the power button positioned in opposition to the volume controls so you have to do some awkward finger contortions to use either of the 3 buttons.

My sentence above was weird and unclear. What I meant was I dislike having buttons on the opposite side like that. It makes using them awkward.

Apparently Apple is capable of putting function before form on the extremely rare occasion. The iPhone13 is actually slightly thicker than the iPhone12.
I wonder who had to be killed to get that change through spec review.

I read somewhere that it's also heavier. But I doubt most people will notice a millimeter, or a couple grams difference.
