Apple has officially unveiled the iPhone 13 today and it will be officially available in Malaysia on October. Now, I would like to share with you the iPhone 13 Pro models. What’s make the Pro model better than the iPhone 13?. Let’s dive in.
Similar to every year, the Pro model iPhones always have better CPU performance and GPU performance in comparison with its competitors. Apple didn’t really mention who is its competition during the event. In comparison with the iPhone 12 Pro models, the iPhone 13 Pro finally comes with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate. Check out the iPhone 13 Pro specifications below.
iPhone 13 Pro Technical Specifications
First of all, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max features a 6.1″ and 6.7″ Super Retina XDR OLED display. For the first time ever, Apple is bringing its ProMotion display technology from iPad to the iPhone 13 Pro. With the ProMotion feature, both the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max supports a 120Hz adaptive screen refresh rate. This means it does not has a fixed 120Hz refresh rate. But the screen refresh rate changes according to the usage. For example, when we try to read an article and scroll slowly, probably you will get just a 30Hz to 60Hz refresh rate. Whereas, the 120Hz kicks off when you scroll continuously on a long article.
For the camera wise, Apple has upgraded the camera sensors of all the triple-camera setups. Even though it still consists of all 12MP cameras similar to iPhone 12 Pro, but the camera sensors are bigger now. It has a 12MP wide camera, 12MP ultra-wide camera and a 12MP telephoto camera. If you notice the image below, it shows that the size of the camera apertures has become bigger compared to its predecessor iPhone 12 Pro. The telephoto camera even comes with 3x optical zoom.
On the camera software, the iPhone 13 Pro comes with a new feature called the cinematic mode. Using this feature you can now shoot cinematic shots like how you watch it on the movies. You may check out the demo in this video below. Including the upcoming ProRes video recording feature which will support 4K 30fps also features in the iPhone 13 Pro. Not to forget, for the first time ever Apple has jumped into macro photography as well. Using the ultra-wide camera, you can take macro shots at a 2cm distance from the object.
Under the hood, the iPhone 13 Pro runs on Apple’s latest A15 Bionic chip. This chip comes with a 6-core CPU and 5-core GPU. Apple says that this chip is 50% faster than its competition. As usual, it even comes with a 16-core neural engine that is capable to perform 15.8 trillion operations per second. Imagine using the ProRes video feature requires heavy operations. Only with this A15 Bionic chip, Apple has made it possible.
For the battery wise, Apple claims that the iPhone 13 Pro will provide you with all-day battery life. The iPhone 13 Pro Max can last 2.5 hours longer than the current iPhone 12 Pro Max. Whereas the iPhone 13 Pro model can last 1.5 hours longer than the current iPhone 12 Pro. As usual, the exact battery specs is not revealed by Apple during the announcement. Storage-wise, Apple has finally max it out at up to 1TB.
The iPhone 13 Pro will be available in four colours which are Sierra Blue, Silver, Gold and Graphite. To know about the pricing check out my post here.
