The tech giant revealed all the details at an event on 14 September

– The Independent

Apple’s latest event took place on 15 September, during which the company announced the new iPhone 13.

The brand’s new device will hit the shelves later this month with prices starting from £679. An update of the most recent iPhone 12, the new iPhone 13 has a smaller notch in the display, a new camera system and the company’s latest A15 chip. Apple claims it to be up to 50 per cent faster than its competitors.

There are four new iPhones overall, including the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 pro and iPhone pro max, with all models featuring larger batteries and a more power-efficient chip that offers between 1.5 and 2.5 hours more battery each day.

Among the updates, there’s a new cinema mode for shooting video using the rear cameras while the more expensive devices – the iPhones 13 pro and 13 pro max – have a new 3x zoom telephoto lens and an ultra-wide camera that enables macro photography for the first time.

Apple has also emphasised a more eco-conscious approach, claiming the antenna bands are made from upcycled plastic water bottles and that all the rare earth metals used in the magnets internally are from recycled materials.

Attach the AirTag to anything you don’t want to lose – your keys, your wallet, your dog – and you can use your iPhone to track its live location. As long as the tag is in Bluetooth range you can use your phone to make it emit a loud chirp. If the tag is any further away than that, Apple’s ‘Find My’ network of connected iOS devices can work together to locate your lost stuff. In our Apple AirTag review, our writer praised the gadget’s low price and ease of use. “For any iPhone owner prone to losing things, investing in a pack of four might be one of the best decisions you ever make.”

The silicone case is a staple in Apple’s own-brand range and the latest model has a decent amount of grip and fits super securely thanks to MagSafe – the ring of magnets located on the back of the phone as well as inside the case. There are numerous colours to choose from, including black or white if you really want to play it safe. But there are more sultry options like eye-catching “kumquat”, “electric orange”, “sunflower” and a retina-searingly bright “pink citrus”. All are well-made and a perfect fit.
