Apple unveils iPhone 13 with better dual camera, 128GB flash, A15 Bionic SoC and improved battery life

Apple today presented new products in California, and the most important among them, of course, smartphones iPhone 13. The new model is generally similar to the iPhone 12, but Apple has completely rebuilt the smartphone from the inside, not least because of the new single-chip system - A15 Bionic.

It is a 5-nanometer single-chip system containing 15 billion transistors. The CPU is represented by 2 high-performance cores and 4 energy-efficient ones. In terms of the CPU, the A15 Bionic is faster than any platform used in Android smartphones. The SoC also includes a 4-core graphics processor and a 16-core neural processor.

iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini have improved cameras. They still use 12-megapixel sensors, but the main sensor is completely new - the largest ever used in an Apple smartphone, with 1.7μm pixels (it captures 47% more light than its predecessor). The ultra-wide-angle camera module is also better. But the most important innovation is the stabilization system: Sensor-Shift, previously used only in the iPhone 12 Pro Max, is now in the iPhone 13, and even in the smallest iPhone 13 mini.

Apple has slightly improved the autonomy of new generation smartphones: due to SoC optimizations and increased battery capacity, the iPhone 13 mini now lasts 1.5 hours longer than its predecessor, and the iPhone 13 - 2.5 hours longer.  

iPhone 13 has an improved, brighter OLED screen (28% brighter than the previous one), which is still protected by the very tough tempered glass Ceramic Shield. The screen cutout has become smaller in order to increase the usable screen area. IP68 protection is still in business, as is the 5G modem.

iPhone 13 received more flash memory: now it has 128 GB of storage. Other memory options are 256 and 512 GB. The price has already been announced: the iPhone 13 mini starts at $ 700, the base iPhone 13 is $ 100 more expensive. Introducing the iPhone 13, Apple CEO Tim Cook said, "People love the iPhone, and we're making the iPhone better." And it's hard to disagree with him.
