In September, the iPhone 13 was announced. The new line features 4 phones: the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Max. Now you may be thinking those model names don’t mean anything to me. Well, you are in the right place; we have put together a guide to each of the new models to make the process of choosing easier.
Let’s start with the base model, the iPhone 13. Although it looks pretty similar to previous models, this phone has gone through its redesign inside. Some of the most notable features are the 6.1-inch screen and a significant battery upgrade. In addition, this line has an A15 processor at its core that makes it way more efficient, offering all-day battery life. Are you an avid cell phone photographer? In that case, you will be excited to hear that the dual-camera system in this phone is way more capable of capturing photos in lower light and stabilizing a shaky hand.
Screen size has seemed like it has only been getting bigger and bigger with each new model. However, with last year’s model and this new one, there is an option for people who prefer a smaller phone. Check out the iPhone 13 mini, it has pretty similar features to the baseline iPhone 13, but it is sporting a 5.4-inch screen.
Avid phone users will want to look at the Pro or Max options to make the most out of their phone. Taking the dual-camera system that lives on the 13 and 13 mini, the pro and max options have a three-lens camera system, making the night mode we discussed earlier much better. Also, being bigger phones and meant to be used more frequently, both have bigger batteries than the mini and standard iPhone 13. The screen on these two also makes it easier to see outside in bright sunlight.
Of course, just because there is a new phone out does not mean that you have to buy one of these new ones. But if you are looking for an upgrade, one of these might be a great option, especially if you are already used to the iOS system. Because all of these are great phones that will work for you, one of the best ways to make a decision might be to go to a store and hold one. In the long run, you want a phone that is easy to use and nice to handle, not necessarily the top of the line.
