It's finally happening. Apple has unveiled the main flagship smartphones of the new generation. We are talking about iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. They summed up the presentation, which announced smartphones iPhone 13 and version mini, tablets iPad 9 and iPad mini 6 with a smart watch Series 7.


Both are equipped with organic LED display with 120 Hz refresh rate. The diagonal is the same as last generation models - 6.1" in the iPhone 13 Pro and 6.7" in the Pro Max version. The resolution is 2532 x 1170 dots and 2778 x 1284 dots, respectively. At the core is the Super Retina XDR matrix, covered by Ceramic Shield glass.

The main feature, which became known a few hours before the presentation is the reduced notch. This allowed to place more icons on the status bar. At the same time the company has not abandoned the Face ID system. Simply the sensors now occupy 20% less space. There is also a 12 Megapixel front camera with a capture angle of 122 degrees.

Needless to say, the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max feature Apple's proprietary 5nm A15 Bionic single-core system with 5G support. It has two performance cores, four power-efficient cores and a quad-core GPU. Users can choose from 128GB to 1TB of storage capacity.

The power capacity is 20 watts. Among other things we should mention stereo sound, surgical stainless steel frame and iOS 15 operating system.


At the presentation it was noted that the novelties have a completely new camera system with LiDAR scanner. All have a resolution of 12MP. The ultra-wide-angle module uses a sensor with 1.9µm pixels. The aperture is f/1.8. The developers have improved the quality of shooting in low light.

The main camera uses a lens with an aperture of f/1.5. There is optical image stabilization, 100% Pixel Focus and seven lenses. The telephoto lens provides 3x zoom without loss of quality, and the optical zoom range is 6x if you count from the ultra-wide-angle module. All three cameras in the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max support night mode.
