Apple announced the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max with longer battery life.
The new iPhones will go on sale on Sept. 24, Apple said.
The iPhone 13 Pro should have a 1.5-hour longer battery life and its bigger sibling will have a 2.5-hour longer battery life, Apple said. The iPhone 13 Pro starts at $999 and the Pro Max starts at $1,099, the same prices as last year. Apple also has added a larger 1TB storage option.
They have the same screen sizes as last year’s models, with a 6.1-inch version and a bigger 6.7-inch version. This year’s models also come in a “Sierra Blue” version.
The iPhone 13 Pro has a display that Apple calls “Super Retina XDR with ProMotion” that has twice the refresh rate as previous iPhones. This means that scrolling on an iPhone should look smoother with less lag.
The biggest distinguishing characteristic between iPhone’s base models and its Pro models is that they have three rear-facing cameras, including a zoom lens, a wide lens and an ultra-wide camera, which can focus on objects as close as 2 centimeters away.
The Pro models have the same chip as the main iPhones, the A15 Bionic, Apple said.
This year’s models are still constructed out of stainless steel, Apple’s marketing chief. Greg Joswiak, said.
Correction: The iPhone 13 Pro should have a 1.5-hour longer battery life. An earlier version misstated the name of the model. Apple’s marketing chief is Greg Joswiak. An earlier version misspelled his last name.With more than 2 million viewers watching on YouTube, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced new iPhone models called iPhone 13. The iPhone 13 has a smaller display cutout, or “notch,” at the top of the screen, as well as larger batteries that provide the devices with between 1.5 and 2.5 more hours of battery life than last year’s models, depending on device size, Apple said.
Otherwise, the new iPhone 13 mostly has the same design as last year with new camera modules arranged diagonally. One camera is a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, with a big sensor that captures 50% more light, Apple said. The other is an ultra-wide lens. One of the camera improvements is a new “cinematic mode” that can hold focus on a moving subject.
