This time all the iPhones are equipped with A15 bionic processors and according to the company, its performance is 20% higher than last year’s A14 while the utility is 30% higher. All four phones have 5G support and have been improved. For the first time, the company has also given a display with 120 Hz refresh rate in two of their iPhone models.
Apple iPhone 13
This phone looks similar to last year’s iPhone 12, only the notch on the front has been reduced a bit while the camera module on the back has been redesigned, but there is no other change in the design. However, the special thing about the phone is that it has a bigger battery than before and according to the company, the battery of iPhone 13 will work for two and a half hours longer than that of iPhone 12.
The iPhone 13 features the company’s new A15 bionic processor, a 5nm chip that’s 50 percent faster than last year’s processor. As far as the camera setup is concerned, the iPhone 13 has a dual camera setup on the back. In fact, the biggest change this year has been in the camera system.
The setup features last year’s iPhone 12 Pro Max’s optical image stabilization system, as well as a new 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera (47% larger than the previous one with sensors). The phone’s second camera is also 12 megapixels. Apple has focused more on video in recent years, and so has the iPhone 13. For this purpose, a new cinematic mode has been added to the camera setup.
According to the company, the focus system has also been improved which will be able to focus automatically and can also be changed manually. As far as price is concerned, Apple has maintained the prices of last year’s models. The iPhone 13 will start at US$ 799 (around 134,000 Pakistani rupees).
Apple iPhone 13 Mini
Although the iPhone 12 mini did not get much attention last year, the company has maintained this model in 2021. The company also introduced the iPhone 13 Mini this year along with the other standard iPhone 13 models. Like the iPhone 13, the mini model also has 5G support and an A15 bionic processor.
According to the company, the battery life has been significantly improved and the iPhone 13 Mini will be able to work an hour and a half longer than last year’s model. Battery life in last year’s mini-model disappointed consumers, so this year’s larger battery is a major upgrade.
This time the Face ID camera (front camera) has been redesigned to make the notch smaller and according to the company it is 20% smaller. Moreover, the 5.4-inch OLED display is 38% brighter than last year’s model.
The iPhone 13 Mini features Apple’s ceramic shield technology that protects the phone screen from falling down, as well as water and dust resistance phones. Its camera setup is similar to that of the iPhone 13, meaning it has two 12-megapixel cameras on the back with a new cinematic mode.
The phone will be available for pre-order on September 17, 2021 and will be available in market from September 24, 2021 starting at US$ 699 (around Rs. 117,000 PKR). Both the standard iPhones will have 128 GB storage instead of 64 GB this time.

In fact, these are the first iPhones to have a 120 Hz display with a refresh rate. The Super Retina XDR display in both the phones supports 10 to 120 Hz refresh rate while the notch volume has also been reduced.
According to the company, both the phones have been given a brand new 3 camera setup. The wide camera performs much better in low light due to its large sensor while the ultra wide sensor has also been significantly improved with the help of wide aperture. The telephoto cameras of both the phones offer 6x optical zoom instead of 3x in all the three cameras.
All three cameras have night mode and a new macro mode has been added which helps in taking pictures of small objects up to 2 cm. The sensor shift optical image stabilization feature is also part of both models.
