Apple has confirmed the iPhone 13 family, and below we’ve put together the key information you need to know so far about the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Read on below to learn everything we know so far about the next generation of iPhone smartphones.

Please bear with us as we fill this article with information as Apple announces these new handsets on stage

iPhone 13 release date and price

The iPhone 13 series was revealed on September 14, but we’ve still sitting through the launch event so we’ve yet to hear when the smartphone will go on sale. We’ll have more information that we can share soon.

The iPhone 13 starts at $799, and the iPhone 13 mini starts at $699. That’s for a 128GB of storage, which matches the price of the 64GB variant of the iPhone 12 last year.

We’ll learn price information later in the show for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

iPhone 13 design and display

The iPhone 13 features a flat edge design, it comes with the Ceramic shield we saw on the iPhone 12 series and it’s also IP68 dust and water resistant (like most modern smartphones).

There are five new colors, which are Pink, Blue, Midnight, Starlight and Product Red.

The design is largely similar to the iPhone 12 series, so if you own one of those phones you’ll likely know what you’ve got here. The notch is slightly smaller – Apple says it’s 20% smaller – so there’s a bit more space on the screen.

As for the display, the iPhone 13 features a 6.1-inch display while the iPhone 13 mini features a 5.4-inch display. They’re both Super Retina XDR displays, and it is using Apple’s own custom OLED technology. 

Each phone still features a 60Hz screen refresh rate, which matches with the rumors. Perhaps the iPhone 13 Pro will change that.

Now onto the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Both handsets come in graphite, gold, silver or a sierra blue. That last shade is new, and it’s one of the boldest colors we’ve seen on a Pro iPhone.

The larger design is very similar to the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, but there are a few changes with some new stainless steel bands around the edges of the handset.

MagSafe also makes a return on all the iPhone 13 series devices, so you’ll be able to use any accessories you bought last year with your iPhone 12. Plus, Apple has introduced more accessories as well.

iPhone 13 camera

iPhone 13’s camera is diagonal for the very first time, which is one of the biggest design changes from the iPhone 12.

There’s a 12MP wide camera, and a 12MP ultra-wide shooter. Both feature new sensors, so Apple believes this will have better photography than your iPhone 12 ios capable of.

The wide camera has an aperture of f/1.6 and the ultra-wide camera has an f/2.4 aperture.

iPhone 13 specs and performance

The iPhone 13 comes with an A15 Bionic chipset inside, but we’ve yet to learn much about what that will be able to do. We’ll likely have to wait until we can use the phone to know much firm information about it.

Both of these handsets are 5G compatible, as was the iPhone 12 series.

You’ll have the option of 128GB, 256GB or 512GB of storage. Huzzah, Apple has finally got rid of its 64GB option for its flagship iPhones, and that means more storage on the cheapest variant.

iPhone 13 battery life

According to Apple, the iPhone 13 handsets will both features better battery life. The iPhone 13 mini will last 90 minutes longer than the iPhone 12 mini, while the iPhone 13 will last 2.5 hours longer than an iPhone 12.

This has mostly been achieved by a variety of optimizations through the A15 chipset and iOS 15 software. Apple has yet to confirm the size of the battery in the iPhone 13 models, and it’s unlikely we’ll know that until someone opens up a handset and finds out manually.
