The Apple iPhone 13 was unveiled at the ‘California Streaming’ event in Cupertino on 14th September 2021. This latest version of iPhone was accompanied by three other new iPhones (the iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Mini), a 7th generation Apple Watch plus a Generation 9 iPad and a Generation 6 iPad Mini. Quite a feature-packed event, which was held virtually due to ongoing covid restrictions.
The iPhone 13 became available to buy on 24th September 2021, and was the successor to the 2020 iPhone 12, being similar in form, size and storage, with a 6.1-inch display, 60Hz refresh rate and a flat chassis. The iPhone 13 also featured the same MagSafe technology as the iPhone 12, enabling magnetic case attachment and wireless charging among other benefits.
A point of difference between the 2020 and 2021 iPhones was the camera system – they both had three cameras; a 12MP front-facing camera and two back-facing 12MP cameras, but on the iPhone 13, the rear cameras had larger sensors which enable better light gathering, and were arranged diagonally to accommodate the increased size of the sensors. An additional feature was the use of a new optical image stabilisation system on the main camera, along with HDR 4 functionality, which was Apple’s new computational photography engine, enabling the user to select different photographic modes from cool, vibrant, warm and rich contrast, as well as a new ‘cinematic mode’.

The design of the iPhone 13 may look very similar to the iPhone 12, with its flat-edged case and Retina screen, but the iPhone 13 boasted several real improvements over the old model. For example, the screen was actually a Super Retina display, and it was claimed that it was nearly 30% brighter than the previous model. The battery life on the iPhone 13 had also been improved by around two and a half hours, thanks to the incorporation of the more efficient A15 Bionic chip.
