We now have all the key specifications, so we can give you an idea of how the two phones stand out from the crowd.
Should you upgrade to iPhone 13 Pro in 2021? Let’s take a closer look at what is being offered.
IPhone 13 Pro vs. iPhone 12 Pro Price and Availability
The iPhone 13 Pro will be released on September 24, 2021. This is a little earlier than the iPhone 12 Pro this year, which landed on October 23, 2020.
Apple’s price is mostly the same as the iPhone 12 Pro. The entry level 128GB model of the iPhone 13 Pro will bring you back 999 / £ 949 / AU $ 1,699, while the 256GB model will cost you 1,099 / 1,049 / AU $ 1,869 and 512GB The model will be priced at $ 1,299 / £ 1,249 / AU $ 2,219.
For the first time, there is a new 1TB model with the iPhone 13 Pro. It will cost 1,499 / ، 1,449 / AU $ 2,569.
The iPhone 12 Pro launched at وقت 999 / £ 999 / AU $ 1,699 for the 128GB model at launch. The 256GB model is priced at $ 1,099 / £ 1,099 / AU $ 1,899, while the $ 1,299 / £ 1,299 / AU $ 2,219 got you 512GB model topping the range.
As you can see, UK buyers are taking advantage of Apple’s recent currency conversion, which means they get a little more for their money.
The iPhone 13 Pro is very similar to the iPhone 12 Pro, but we would be very surprised if we didn’t. Apple has drastically changed the design of its iPhone with last year’s models, so another wholesale change is not yet on the card.
When you get the same angular design, parallel glass surfaces, and surgical grade stainless steel rims, there are subtle differences.
The new phone is slightly larger and heavier than its predecessor, which reflects its larger battery. While the iPhone 12 Pro measures 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.4 mm and weighs 189 grams, the iPhone 13 Pro measures 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.65 mm and weighs 204 grams. The new phone is one part thick and weighs 15 grams.
You also get a slightly different array of color options with this year’s iPhone: Graphite, Gold, Silver, and Sierra Blue. The iPhone 12 Pro is available in Silver, Graphite, Gold and Pacific Blue.
Like the iPhone 12 Pro, the iPhone 13 Pro covers its front with a ceramic shield, which is four times harder than other glass display materials.
Probably the most important design change this time is the display mark, which is 20% smaller on the iPhone 13 Pro than its iPhone 12 Pro counterpart.
At first glance, these two displays look alike. They are both 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED displays with the same 1170 x 2532 resolutions. Both can achieve a maximum brightness of 1200 nits for HDR material.
Although there are some differences. One is that the display of the iPhone 13 Pro gets brighter in the outdoor lighting, to the tune of a whopping 1,000 nits. The iPhone 12 Pro can handle only 800 nits.
However, the main difference is that the iPhone 13 Pro earns its pro the name in a way that the iPhone 12 Pro really should have 12 months ago. The new phone eventually adds 120Hz refresh rate to the equation.
This is a very late feature, Apple has introduced its very smooth Promotion standard with the 2017 iPad Pro. This basically means that the content can pass as easily as twice the 60Hz of the iPhone 12 Pro.
Apple has used LTPO (low temperature polycrystalline oxide) display technology here, so it can increase the refresh rate of the iPhone 13 Pro display from 10Hz to 120Hz.
This LTPO technology has been present in Android phones for a while, but the interesting thing here is that iOS allows you to track the speed of your touch input and adjust the refresh rate of the screen accordingly. Programmed The result is that it must be measured without interruption without you realizing it, thus saving significant battery life.
Like the previous iPhone 12 Pro, the iPhone 13 Pro packs 12 MP cameras in all three.
This time, the iPhone 13 Pro gets a new wide width sensor and wider f / 1.5 aperture (compared to the iPhone 12 Pro’s f / 1.6) for 2.2x improvement in low light shots.
The iPhone 13 Pro’s Ultra Wide sensor has been increased to f / 1.8 aperture, which is much larger than the iPhone 12 Pro’s f / 2.4. Overall, this sensor enjoys 92% less light than the iPhone 12 Pro’s Ultra Wide.
This is not the only way to improve the iPhone 13 Pro’s ultra wide camera. It also has the ability to capture fast super close-up macro shots at a distance of 2 cm from the subject.
Elsewhere, the 12MP telephoto lens promotes 2x optical zoom on the iPhone 12 Pro to 3x optical zoom on the iPhone 13 Pro. You can also take night mode shots using the telephoto sensor this time.
Apple always comes to the table with the latest photography tricks, and the iPhone 13 Pro includes a new feature that lets you choose from a variety of photography styles, adding sound and warmth without creating things like skin and sky. Changes.
The Smart HDR4, meanwhile, can accommodate multiple people in a single scene.
On the video front, the new cinematic mode will automatically select the focus of attention for movie theater-worthy productions, even following a subject’s gaze and anticipating when a subject is about to emerge. ۔ It allows you to edit the effects of depth after shooting.
At the end of the year, there’s a feature called ProRes Video, which lets you record, edit and deliver broadcast-ready content at 4K / 30fps or if you choose the 128GB model.
This iPhone 12 Pro looks like a healthy bump in one of the best smartphone cameras on the market.
Details and performance.
Apple’s A-Series chips are always on top of the smartphone’s performance tree, and we can’t see that change with the iPhone 13 Pro’s A15 Bionic.
It offers a 6-core CPU that is 50% faster than the leading Android side. When it comes to GPUs, the A15 in the iPhone 13 Pro is even sweeter than the A15 Bionic found in the iPhone 13, which has a 5-core GPU (instead of 4-core) up to 50% on its nearest rival. Claims an increase. .
Apple didn’t provide much in the way of direct comparisons with its immediate past, but we do know that the new neural engine of the A15 bionic chip is capable of 15.8 trillion operations per second, which is the iPhone 12 Pro’s. Defeats 14 Bionic’s 11 trillion operations. With the other hand.
You get the same storage options as before, which equals 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. For the first time, though, Apple has also launched a powerful 1TB storage option.
Apple also believes that the iPhone 13 Pro supports more 5G bands than the iPhone 12 Pro. Will it make a difference to most people? This is very suspicious.
We were a little upset last year when the iPhone 12 Pro launched with a 2,815mAh battery, representing a regression from its predecessor. Thankfully, Apple claims that the iPhone 13 Pro’s battery is large.
We’re not sure how big it is – Apple doesn’t usually share that kind of data – but there are rumors that it could be 3,095mAh.
With the addition of a 120Hz display, the iPhone 13 Pro needs that extra juice. But we are still hopeful that it will meet the capabilities of the iPhone 12 Pro or beyond.
Apple claims that the iPhone 13 Pro has 1.5 hours of battery life per charge compared to the iPhone 12 Pro. This is probably a huge increase.
Last year, we found that we were having a good day and managing to spend six hours of screen time with the iPhone 12 Pro. So we can see a lot of stamina champ in iPhone 13 Pro.
Apple has not improved the charging facility of iPhone 13 Pro at all. We still don’t see 20W wired, 15W wireless and no charging bricks at all. Like the iPhone 12 Pro, in other words.
As widely expected, this is the year of ‘evolution not revolution’ for Apple’s iPhone family.
This means that in the iPhone 13 Pro you get a package very similar to the iPhone 12 Pro, but with healthier speed boosts, potentially much better cameras, better battery life and significantly more Fluid display.
This 120Hz refresh rate is really headline news, but it also looks like the iPhone 12 Pro should have been a year ago.
We’ll need to move on to make sure, but the iPhone 13 Pro seems a safe upgrade for anyone coming IPhone 11 Pro. Or earlier. IPhone 12 Pro users might want to wait another year – or at least until they review our iPhone 13 Pro.
