The first thing Apple talks about for the iPhone 13 and 13 mini is how they are elevating the camera game where the 12th generation has all the goodies and “professional” features exclusive to the Pro models whereas this year, everyone from top to toe will get a big bump in image quality and feature accessibility – take the Sensor-Shift OIS for example. Only available in the iPhone 12 Pro Max last year. This time? EVERYBODY!

With more and more people adopting the use of the iPhone for content creation, Apple has optimized the Cinematic mode which is now one step closer to what you can get in real movies with innovative functions such as focus readjust DURING and AFTER the shot has been captured or post-bokeh processing in the Photos/iMovie in addition to HDR recording with Dolby Vision with 4K/60fps configuration. Meanwhile, a new Photographic Styles preset can be customized according to the user’s preference in terms of color temperature, range, and more can be saved and applied for future shots so that photographers can constantly work in the comfort zone and need not manually apply specific color profiles to each and everything they have captured.

Another core subject is the new A15 Bionic SoC that sports a new 6-core CPU, 4-core GPU, and 16-core Neural Engine that powers everything AI-related such as Live Text in Camera in iOS 15 or any other 3rd party app. Thanks to 5nm transistor size, computational performance, and battery life all get a big lift as well.

Let’s take a look at what components Apple has crammed into the latest and “smartest” smartphone in the world, shall we?
