The Apple 13 is a solid upgrade from last year’s iPhone 11 and offers enough new features to make it a strong choice for existing Apple owners and those looking to buy their first iPhone. The display is brighter, the camera performs better in low light, and the battery life has increased.
There are a few new design elements as well, including a slightly smaller notch that’s easier to ignore. Apple also integrated the earpiece into the top bezel, making it look more like a normal smartphone. This allowed them to shrink the notch by about 20% without affecting the TrueDepth camera system or Face ID. The result is an extremely sleek looking phone.
Another notable change is that the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro are 5G-ready. This means you’ll be able to enjoy super fast wireless download speeds when it becomes available, and it will work seamlessly with your current LTE network. The new models also offer a feature that automatically swaps between LTE and 5G depending on your usage needs. It’s a neat trick that saves you from having to manually switch between networks, and it works really well.
Aside from the cameras, the biggest upgrade over the iPhone 11 is the new Super Retina XDR display. It’s not only 28 percent brighter than before, it also has deeper colors and a wide color gamut. It’s a stunning screen and one of the best on any smartphone out there right now.
If you’re considering the iPhone 13, we recommend opting for either 256GB or 512GB of storage. It’s easy to fill up the 128GB, even with iCloud support, and it’s nice to be able to future-proof your purchase.
The Pro and Pro Max offer a few other advantages over the regular iPhone 13. They have a 120Hz ProMotion display, a telephoto lens for 3x optical zoom and improved low-light camera performance, and they’re compatible with Apple’s magnetic MagSafe chargers. The iPhone 13 doesn’t come with a MagSafe connector, so you’ll have to shell out for a new charging cable and case if you go with this model.
There are a few issues that we’ve seen with the iPhone 13. It’s sometimes difficult to see notifications on the lock screen, and erroneous pink screens have plagued some users. However, these problems are isolated and are unlikely to affect everyone.
Is the iPhone 13 worth buying in 2023?
