Apple iPhone 13 specs

The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini are available in Pink, Blue, Midnight (black), Starlight (white) and Product Red. The iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max are available in Sierra Blue, Silver, Gold and Graphite.
Apple claims the included A15 Bionic chipset has an up-to 50 percent faster CPU and 30 percent faster GPU than competitors. All models also feature 5G, Gigabit LTE, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, and NFC capabilities.
The new iPhone models are slightly thicker and heavier than their previous iPhone 12 equivalents.
The iPhone 13 is being hailed as Apple’s ‘fastest’ phone ever. The iPhone 13 mini alone is capable of up to 17 hours of video playback, or 13 hours when streamed, and up to 55 hours of audio playback.
The base iPhone 13 battery offers 19 hours of video playback, or 15 hours when streamed, and up to 75 hours of audio playback.
The iPhone 13 Pro battery includes up to 22 hours of video playback, or 20 hours when streamed, and up to 75 hours of audio playback.
iPhone 13 Pro MAX’s battery life boasts 28 hours of video playback, or 25 when streamed, and 95 hours of audio playback, which is just shy of four days worth of audio playback.
The iPhone 13 and 13 mini feature dual 12-megapixel sensors, while the iPhone 13 Pro and Max models boasts a triple-lens camera.
When it comes to recording video, each model’s revolutionary cinematic mode lets you record at 1080p at 30fps, HDR video recording with Dolby Vision up to 4K at 60fps, and slow-motion support for 1080p at 120 and 240fps.
If you’re considering either the Pro and Pro Max model, they also support ProRes video recording up to 4K at 30fps or 1080p at 30fps for the 128GB storage model.
Using Apple’s custom OLED tech, the iPhone 13 and Mini feature a Super Retina XDR display. They also feature a 60Hz screen refresh rate. Display features also include HDR, True Tone, Haptic Touch, and a fingerprint-resistant coating.
The two Pro models will feature a ProMotion display with a variable refresh rate up to 120Hz.
The iPhone mini measures in at 5.4-inch 1080 x 2340 screen, while the base iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 Pro have the same dimensions – a 6.1-inch 1170 x 2532 display. The Pro Max features a 6.7-inch 2778×1284 screen.
Apple says the notch is 20 percent smaller than previous iPhone 12 models, which basically frees up a bit more space on the screen.
