Just recently, there was a presentation by Apple, where we were presented with a lot of interesting things. Users had different opinions about the new gadgets. Some were delighted with the new devices, others were indignant and said that Apple is no longer the same and the updates were very minor. Now, it's time to look at the new devices a little more objectively. Compare the look, features, new features to last year's models, and look at Apple's performance over time. I suggest we start with the real flagships - the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max.
It must be said that the older iPhone models somehow pulled off the company's presentation this time around. The classic iPhones have long since leaked onto the Web and have not generated the public's proper enthusiasm. Immediately after their display, a flood of couch analysts flooded the web with the words, "The iPhone is no longer the same, Tim Cook should be put to bed," which is not the case with the flagship line of iPhone 13 Pro.
I don't know about you, but I don't like Apple's smartphone policy at all. Previously, back in the days of the iPhone 5s, when I bought the company's cheapest phone, I understood that I was holding a real flagship. Now that the iPhone line has expanded to include Pro models, that feeling is gone. But the desire remains. In this regard, even before I took the Pro Max in my hands, I can safely recommend it to you. That's where the innovation is, that's where it is.
The design of older iPhone models has not undergone major changes, but there is a new exclusive color: to the classic graphite, gold and silver was added sky blue. Before we were shown the new models, there were rumors about an all-black iPhone 13 Pro, but unfortunately, they were not true. This color appeared only in the classic model.
Apple, for some reason unknown to me, is not very fond of classic colors at all. Every time Product RED looks not like red, not like pink. Instead of the classic black color, Cupertino releases Space Grey, which looks extremely cheap. I was really looking forward to pure black in the new iPhones, but Apple decided otherwise. Well, sky blue is pretty good too!
On top of that, the iPhone 13 Pro has increased the size of the camera unit. So, a case from the last iPhone will no longer fit. Also some changes affected the notorious bangs. Now it became a little shorter, but slightly longer in height. As for the dimensions of the devices, the new models became a little heavier and thicker. It seems that this is due to the increased battery of the new iPhones.
For lovers of beautiful pictures, they presented a new screen with the Pro Motion function, which should provide a refresh rate of 120 Hz. But not without nuances. Apple decided to make the screen update dynamic. The display itself will adjust to the picture, and the frequency will be kept in the range from 10 to 120 Hz. You will not be able to adjust it manually. What do you want? You forgot, it's Apple.
Android fans have long blamed Apple for the lack of a 120 Hz screen. But they do it, in my opinion, absolutely for nothing. It is important to understand that the refresh rate is not the only indicator of the beauty of the picture. There are many more nuances in the form of animations, transitions and other things. For comparison, I suggest we go into the Samsung boutique with the iPhone 12 and look at the speed of the display. The difference is minimal.
The iPhone 13 also features the A15 Bionic processor.
Apple claims that the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max have an extra fifth core GPU, which provides 50% better performance than the competition. We should have written about this at the very beginning, but the fact is that last year's chip was enough beyond all tasks. We haven't needed the power of new gadgets for a long time. It keeps up even with the iPhones, which were introduced three years ago.
