iPhone 13 Pro looks remarkably identical to that of the iPhone 12 Pro with two major features: the bigger camera hump as well as, the smaller notch. The first is obvious. Lenses and squares surrounding them are noticeable. The phone isn’t flat when placed on a desk or table.
A smaller-sized notch, however, is worth paying attention though. Apple claims it’s around 20 percent less than what we’re familiar with. In real-world use, you’ll certainly tell when you place the latest phone against one of the iPhone 12 Pro.
The stainless-steel frame makes iPhone 13 Pro a serious weight. It’s more solid than 7.19 ounces, Apple declares as the weight of the phone. My phone experience was short; however, I felt the pinky and wrist muscles fatigue when using it, much more than it is the iPhone 12 Pro I use as my daily driver.
The iPhone 13 Pro has the same OLED panel that it had before, and it’s the iPhone 13 Pro packs some pixels into the screen, which measures 6.1 inches across. Apple claims that this is the most current edition of the Super Retina XDR technology, and it’s gorgeous. There’s a lot of contrast, while the view angles are fantastic.
iPhone 13 had a similar color scheme to its predecessor. iPhone 13 managed similar color saturation as its predecessor, and its color Delta-E accuracy score (where zero is perfect) was similar to that of the iPhone 12 Pro. Be aware of the maximum brightness we measured in our lab: 1,024nits is astonishingly bright.
The iPhone 13 Pro comes equipped with three rear cameras of 12MP and a telephoto lens that has a 77mm focal length and three times optical zoom. The main camera has an upgraded sensor and a wider aperture with f/1.5, Which means that it will allow more sunlight than before.
The 120-degree ultrawide 12MP also comes with a larger sensor and autofocus to give sharper super-wide-angle images. It’s when low light is where the phone excels, particularly in comparison to its predecessor and competitors.
The iPhone 13 Pro includes Photographic Styles, which are preset filters, but using them for just that would be a disservice. Each style is displayed in real-time to let you select the perfect lighting and color balance options to achieve the artistic style you’re looking for. From vibrant to high contrast, These modes provide different ways to capture images without applying filters after the fact. They work with both camera’s front as well as the rear. Below is a gallery of the default mode and the four options available from the box. They can be customized to suit your needs later.
In the past few years, the iPhone was the ideal phone to purchase for those interested in video recording. The latest feature on iPhone 13 Pro in Cinematic Mode is the portrait video that we have had heard about. The new feature is more than that. It provides a highly professional and artistic method to take videos. Cinematic Mode applies an effect of bokeh around the subject, monitors the subject as you shoot.
For a more traditional method, The iPhone 13 Pro supports Dolby Vision HDR speeds up to 4K at 60 fps. It also supports shooting using the ProRes format that lends itself to editing professional-quality and editing. You can also edit using your iPhone 13 Pro, thanks to the phone’s processing capabilities. But, ProRes with a resolution of 4K at 30 FPS is only available on the 256GB, 512GB as well as 1TB iPhone 13 Pro models. The 128GB model is limited to 1080p at 30 frames per second ProRes.
The new feature on new features in the iPhone 13 series is the A15 Bionic system-on-chip. It comes with a six-core CPU and a five-core GPU for those Pro models and the upgraded Neural Engine. (The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini are equipped with four-core GPUs). Equipped with 6GB of RAM, The iPhone 13 Pro is powerful device miles ahead of what Android offers. The A15 surpasses the Snapdragon 888 and further demonstrates the power of Apple’s skilled hands with silicon.
All of this is to say that it’s true that the iPhone Pro is the most powerful phone you could purchase currently (along with its larger brother that is its iPhone Pro Max). Android and its plethora of devices possess their strengths; however, the hardware behind the ecosystem has a tough task keeping up with Apple’s chip.
Battery life and charging
We don’t have any information about the iPhone 13 Pro’s battery’s capacity since Apple doesn’t make that information public. Teardowns will reveal this information. However, we get confirmation from Apple that there are bigger batteries on the new iPhones.
The bigger battery on the iPhone Pro certainly pays its dividends and extends the battery life by 3 hours more than the previous model and over two hours. Moreover, its predecessor, the Galaxy S21 Plus, for between 11 and 42 minutes. In comparison, the last iPhone reached the 9-hour mark in just 6 mins as that of the Galaxy S21 Plus managed 9 hours and 41 minutes.
