The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro are both finally here after months of leaks, rumours and news. On the surface, it certainly feels like a smaller update, especially when compared to last year, but that’s not to say there isn’t a load of new features.
There’s a new A15 Bionic chip that Apple says is ‘50% faster than the competition’, a smaller notch, improved cameras and a whole new range of colours. It is missing the new Promotion 120Hz display of the Pro models, though which is something of a shame.
Apple has announced the iPhone 13 – the latest entry in its incredibly popular smartphone line. Here’s everything we know so far about the device.
As was the case in 2020, there are two versions of the iPhone 13. A regular model and a smaller iPhone 13 Mini. While most features are the same across the two, there could be some slight differences with the Mini model when it comes to battery life. Apple is touting improved endurance across the board for all the new phones.
In terms of the display, it looks as though the notch is slightly smaller this time around. This was heavily rumoured but hardly touched upon during the event.

Iphone 13 Screen
The display remains an OLED panel in the same 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch sizes and it can get even brighter.
Apple says the new models can hit 1200 nits of brightness making it 20% brighter. This should be especially noticeable when you’re streaming HDR content.
