They’re taking preorders for the September 24 (2021) release. As is often the case when they introduce a new product or iPhone model, you can expect to see some new exciting and innovative features.
The 13 and 13 mini tout some new features, including what the company says is its most advanced dual-camera system ever for an iPhone. Apple has redesigned the iPhone’s architecture and turned the lenses 45 degrees to fit in the dual-camera system, with an Ultra-Wide camera sensor (also its fastest to date).
To quote Apple:
“Our most advanced dual‑camera system ever.”
“Durability that’s front and center. And edge to edge.”
“A lightning-fast chip that leaves the competition behind.”
“A huge leap in battery life you’ll notice every day.”
The new Ultra-Wide camera system allows for bigger pixels (1.7 µm pixels) and sensor-shift optical image stabilization (OIS); both promises to improve low-light photos and videos. (The sensor-shift stabilization was originally introduced in the iPhone 12 Pro Max.)
The new camera has the biggest sensor ever put in an iPhone dual-camera system. It can gather 47-percent, allowing for more light, less noise, and brighter results.
Thanks to the A15 Bionic chip, more efficient components, a larger battery, and power optimizations from a deep integration of hardware and software, you can expect a lot from the camera. Another piece of great news: you can expect significant battery life improvements!
Apple says that innovations improve both performance and efficiency in the new chip thanks to a new 6-core GPU, with two high-performance cores and four high-efficiency cores.
The new phones’ display has been upgraded to an improved Super Retina XDR OLED. According to Apple, the improvement will deliver authentic black and a 28-percent increase in max outdoor brightness at 800 nits. The HDR content gets a boost of up to 1,200 nits while still being more power-efficient than the iPhone 12.
