New features iPhone 13 Pro – Apple officially announced the iPhone 13 lineup with improved features both in terms of display and camera.
Apple officially announced the iPhone 13 at a virtual “California Streaming” event, Tuesday (September 114). Four devices were announced: the iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The iPhone 13 series is supported by A15 Bionic, Apple’s latest chip, in contrast to the iPhone 12, which uses the A14. This new chipset is claimed to be the fastest CPU of any smartphone and 50% faster than competitors. Not only that but the GPU is allso claimed to be 30% faster than the others. Its 16-core Neural Engine is also said to be capable of performing 15.8 trillion operations per second.
The most striking new thing in the iPhone 13 is the rear camera design arranged diagonally instead of vertically like the previous generation. iPhone 13 Pro even comes with the ProMotion Display feature, which allows the screen to dynamically adjust the refresh rate from 10 Hz to 120 Hz, according to the content displayed on the screen.
Both the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13Pro seriies have been equipped with new cameras and received the largest sensor seen on any Apple smartphone to date. For those of you who enjoy shootiing, video, or a mix of both, there are some exciting new photography features on iPhone this year, and we’ve rounded them up.
Before we begin, note that our references to the iPhone 13 below include the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini, while the mention of iPhone 13 Pro includes the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. If it’s clear, here are 6 new features on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro reported by Tech Radar.
1. Cinematic Mode (iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro)
The biggest camera improvement for iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro is the new Cinematic mode. This mode allows iPhone to automatically change focus from one object to another in the middle of the shot. This capability was present on other phones, such as the Sony Xperia 1 II, but this is the first time on the iPhone.
2. Macro Mode (iPhone 13 Pro)
Apple made improvements to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max for macro photos on the ultra-wide camera. Apple says a new ultra-wide camera with an aperture of f/1.8 and a 120-degree field of view. The camera also has a new lens design and an autofocus system that allows it to focus on and zoom in on subjects from a distance of 2cm.
Interestingly, Apple also says that the power of these new macros extends to video, including Slo-mo and Time-lapse modes. Pro photographers’ initial samples naturally look impressive, but we’ll need to see how they turn out from other tests.
3. Photographic Styles (iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro)
Another useful tool that will be available throughout the iPhone 13 series is Photographic Styles. It works more or less like an Adobe Lightroom preset that allows the user to define a certain look in a photo. But Apple applies it while shooting rather than after.
4. Apple ProRes support (iPhone 13 Pro)
As mentioned in some rumors, Apple introduced the ProRes video format to the iPhone 13 Pro series. Simply put, it’s a compressed video format that provides easy editing in programs liike Apple Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro without losing detail.
Apple hasn’t revealed which of the six ProRes formats will be supported on the iPhone 13 Pro model but says users can record 4K/30p ProRes files. Unless the user chooses the lower capacity 128GB model, it will lower the video quality to 1080p/30p.
5. Night Mode on All Cameras (iPhone 13 Pro)
Apple says the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini will get an “improved Night mode,” but it’s the ‘Pro’ model that again gets added support across all three cameras.
For many, this is actually the biggest camera upgrade in the new iPhone Pro, given the versatility of Night mode. Pro photographer Damien Demolder says, “sometimes night mode can be useful under normal conditions to reduce contrast with dynamic range.”
6. Bigger Camera Sensors (iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro)
The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro have upgraded to a wide camera that gets a bigger sensor. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini inherit the same main camera as last year’s iPhone 12 Pro Max, with 1.7-micron pixels, Sensor-shift optical stabilization, and an f/1.6 aperture.
Meanwhile, the main wide camera of the iPhone 13 Pro series features the largest sensor ever on an iPhone, with 1.9-micron pixels supported by the same Sensor-shift stabilization and an f/1.5 lens. Accordiing to Apple, this brings a 2.2x improvement in low-light shooting compared to the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
