9 Little Discoveries of the iPhone 13 Series You Didn't Know About


Details: 9 important iPhone 13 discoveries

The iPhone 13 series again consists of four models: the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. In addition to the improved cameras, the new colors and the faster chip, Apple has also added all kinds of small improvements. But there are also some minor limitations in some cases if you choose a specific model.

#1 Dual eSIM support
The iPhone 13 series offers dual eSIM support for the first time. Normally you would need both an eSIM and a nano SIM card for dual SIM on the iPhone, but now you can also choose to use an eSIM from two providers. This comes in handy in various situations, for example if you have to work for both work and private life. want to use an eSIM. This is also useful if you use an eSIM for your own private number and you are abroad and want to use an eSIM data SIM card there.

#2 The notch is narrower, but slightly thicker
As predicted, the notch in the iPhone 13 models is slightly narrower than before. According to Apple, the notch is about 20% narrower, because the ear speaker sits against the housing. But what Apple doesn't say is that the notch is also slightly thicker. The difference is small: from comparison images it seems to be about 1mm.

#3 Zoom in optically with telephoto lens
Apple has improved the camera in the iPhone 13 series in several places. For example, there are better wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle lenses and all models are equipped with image stabilization with sensor shift. But what we want to highlight is that the iPhone 13 Pro models have a better telephoto lens. You can now zoom in 3x optically on both the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max. With the iPhone 12 Pro you still had 2x optical zoom and with the iPhone 12 Pro Max this was 2.5x.

#4 Longer battery life
All models are equipped with a better battery. Apple already mentioned this during the keynote, but we'd like to share the exact numbers with you:

  • iPhone 13: up to 19 hours of video playback (+2 hours, was 17 hours)
  • iPhone 13 mini: up to 17 hours of video playback (+2 hours, was 15 hours)
  • iPhone 13 Pro: up to 22 hours of video playback (+5 hours, was 17 hours)
  • iPhone 13 Pro: up to 22 hours of video playback (+5 hours, was 17 hours)
  • iPhone 13 Pro Max: Up to 28 hours of video playback (+8 hours, was 20 hours)

#5 All models from 128GB storage, up to 1TB on Pro models
The good news is that you now get standard 128GB storage in all models, including the standard iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. The 512GB option has now also been added. With the Pro models you can go even further: 1TB has been added as an option. But you pay a hefty price for that. Compared to the 128GB version, you pay €580,- extra. That is, incidentally, a lot less than the surcharge for the 1TB iPad Pro: you pay an extra €770.

#6 A15 chip in Pro models is slightly better
For the first time, Apple makes a small adjustment in the A15 chip between the different models. The iPhone 13 Pro series contains a slightly better version of Apple's latest chip. The A15 in the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max has a 5-core GPU. That's the graphics processor. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini have a 4-core GPU. The other specifications for the CPU are the same: a 6-core CPU with 2 performance and 4 efficiency cores.

The GPU is mainly used for many graphics-heavy tasks, such as photo and video editing and games. The extra GPU core in the Pro models is presumably used for ProRes video editing.

#7 ProRes limitation with 128GB model
Apple is going to add ProRes to the iPhone 13 Pro series via a software update. This allows you to film with better colors and less compression. This technique is mainly used in the professional film industry. But it does make a difference which version of the iPhone 13 Pro you use. On the 128GB model, you're limited to 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second. In all other higher storage capacities, you can record ProRes in 4K resolution at 30 frames per second.

Apple also adds the Film Mode (Cinematic Mode), which allows you to switch depth and focus during filming, as often happens in films. But on all models you are limited to 1080p at 30 frames per second.

#8 mmWave 5G in US models only
Last year, Apple first introduced 5G on the iPhone. What struck me was that only the American models support mmWave 5G. This is the much faster version of 5G, which will only be supported by Dutch providers in a few years. While there have been rumors that the iPhone 13 series would support mmWave in more countries, that is not the case. The mmWave support is still exclusive to the US iPhone 13 models. In the Netherlands and Belgium the version with standard 5G is therefore sold.

#9 Heavier and thicker than iPhone 12 series
Usually Apple opts for a slimmer and lighter housing with the latest iPhones. But that is different with the iPhone 13 series. Compared to the iPhone 12 models, the new iPhones are not only thicker, but also slightly heavier. These are the numbers:

  • iPhone 13:
    • Depth: 7.65mm (was 7.4mm)
    • Weight: 173 grams (was 162 grams )
  • iPhone 13 mini:
    • Depth: 7.65mm (was 7.4mm)
    • Weight: 140 grams (was 133 grams)
  • iPhone 13 Pro:
    • Depth: 7.65mm (was 7.4mm)
    • < li>Weight: 203 grams (was 187 grams)

  • iPhone 13 Pro Max:
    • Depth: 7.65mm (was 7.4mm)
    • Weight: 238 grams (was 226 grams)
