iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max: the promise of the highest graphics performance in history in a mobile finally comes with a 120 Hz screen

Last year Apple multiplied the iPhone models like never before with the iPhone 12 mini , iPhone 12 , iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max and the play has been repeated this year, as expected . Specifically, the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max are released to complete the Apple catalog on its highest-end mobiles.

In general we see that it has not been a very drastic renovation and that part of the most striking and different is, as suspected, on the screen and in photography . More hertz, less notch and new features for these new mobiles that go straight to trying to win the throne of the best mobiles of the year and that have preserved the aesthetics that we knew from their predecessors.

A design that sounds to us, even if the notch becomes small

The iPhone 13 Pro does not break with the design either, as expected , preserving the 90 degree angled edges that the iPhone 12 recovered. They have IP68 resistance and the matte of the glass is maintained, in contrast to the module.

The screens are 6.1 and 6.7 inches and the refresh rate has finally been raised to 120 Hz , something that until now we had only seen in the iPad Pro (speaking of Apple). It comes with the ProMotion setting, so that the refresh rate adapts to the use and thus be able to better manage energy consumption, and along with this the notch also suffers a certain reduction, as in the case of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini.

A new brain that promises the never seen before in performance

Inside they have the new Apple A15 Bionic , the processor that they have released with the new iPhone in full. Here they have taken their chest out with respect to the GPU that it includes, promising the highest graphics performance in a mobile to date and all the power and fluidity that the heaviest tasks, such as video editing and games, demand.

Of the RAM, for a change, they have not given a clue, although this probably remains with respect to the previous one. Neither of the mAh following the custom, but here the manufacturer promises improvements in hours, specifically 1.5 hours more than the 12 Pro and 2.5 hours more than the 12 Pro Max, respectively.

The software that these new iPhone will bring is the already known iOS 15 , maintaining the NFC and the Lightning connector. Also the stereo sound and the absence of an audio minijack, and finally nothing back from the TouchID: FaceID is still the only biometric unlocking system .

Of course, the most powerful (Apple) photographic system to date

The triple camera of the Pro is kept on the back of these new mobiles, integrating:

  • Telephoto: 12 MP f / 2.8, 77mm, 3x optical zoom.
  • Ultra wide angle: 12 MP f / 1.8, 6P, 120º.
  • Main: 12 MP f / 1.5 OIS.
  • Front camera: 12 MP f / 2.2.

With larger sensors they promise greater light capture and thus a better result at night, even with the wide angle. This camera also launches macro mode , something that we have been seeing for some time on Android and for which most of the time an extra lens is used (with a very small sensor).

Layer 1

Thus, once again Apple remains in its commitment to the triple 12 megapixel sensor, focusing on increasing the size of the sensor and that of the pixels, reaching its own record of 1.9 µm per pixel. The larger the photodiode size, the promise is more light gathering and less noise. It remains to be seen if they meet that of being 2.2 times better than the Pro or 1.5 times better than the Pro Max in low-light situations.

Something interesting is the also rumored in terms of stabilization. The brand can usually boast of an optical stabilization system for the video result especially, and now the iPhone includes optical image stabilization by sensor shift , a new technology with which the sensor is stabilized instead of the lens.

Layer 2

Cinema (or Cinematic) mode will allow you to use selective focus and allows you to record in HDR with Dolby Vision. Another new feature is Photo Styles , allowing users to apply filters and effects without losing multi-frame image processing. And beware, the night photography mode reaches all lenses at last, as it happens in Samsung mobiles and other brands.
