Apple unveil their iPhone 13

15th September 2021

Last night Apple held their annual September event, titled ‘California Streaming’, and unveiled their latest range of iPhones in addition to the new Apple Watch Series 7, and 2 new iPad models. Let’s take a look at their newest offerings.

The new iPhone range has 4 models: iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

ProMotion is Apple’s name for the adaptive, high refresh rate, 120Hz display. While a standard refresh rate will update a display 60 times a second (60Hz), the ProMotion’s adaptive 120Hz screen works at twice this speed. This results in smoother scrolling, improved responsiveness, and better gaming performance. All devices are powered by the world’s fastest smartphone chip – Apple’s A15 bionic. The whole range features a 20% smaller notch compared to the iPhone 12 models, and improved battery life across the board. Apple also announced they are ditching the plastic wrap that previously encased new iPhone boxes, saving 600 tonnes of plastic!

In addition to the new handsets, Apple also announced the new Apple Watch 7, iPad Mini and a new entry-level iPad. All Apple Watch Series 7 models will be available later this Autumn. watchOS 8 will be available for Apple Watch Series 3 and later on September 20th and requires iPhone 6s or later with iOS 15 or later. The new iPad (9th Gen) and iPad mini (6th Gen) are due to release on 24th September alongside the new iPhone range.  Apple’s latest operating system, iOS15, is due to be available to download on the 20th of September.
