The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini are available with the same selection of colors, or ‘finishes’. We have the standard black and white colors, but this time they’re called Midnight – black with a touch of carbon gray – and Starlight – white with a slight hue of gold and pearl.

Other finishes include Blue – similar to the iPhone 12 color, albeit lighter – and for the first time ever on iPhone, the color Pink. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini will also be available in PRODUCT (RED), but fans of last year’s Purple finish might be disappointed to know that this color is no longer available on the current iPhone lineup.

iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max

iPhone 13 Performance

While the iPhone 13 introduced so many new features and improvements over its predecessors, the star of last night’s Apple Launch Event was arguably the new, super-fast, and super-efficient A15 Bionic chipset that powers the new smartphone. Featuring performance improvements across the board – from battery efficiency to processing speed – the A15 Bionic is a marvel of modern technology. Of course, they said that about the A14 Bionic when it came out and shipped with last year’s iPhone 12’s, but the simple truth is that Apple’s done it yet again.

With a new neural engine, the hexa-core A15 Bionic is capable of 15.8 trillion operations per second, and is 50% faster than the leading competition. This enhancement in processor capability is also what paved the way for the all-new camera system and the dramatic improvements in camera performance and capabilities.

In terms of performance, the Pro models of the iPhone 13 – the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max – come with an enhanced version of the A15 Bionic that features an extra GPU core for even better graphics performance. Apple boasts that the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max offer a GPU that’s 50% more powerful than anything their competitors currently have on offer. By comparison, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini are only 30% better than any other smartphone GPU.

iPhone 13 Camera

The iPhone 13 boasts the most powerful camera hardware ever in a smartphone, and the way they made it all fit into a ‘slightly larger’ camera module was so impressive that the folks at Apple just couldn’t wait to tell everyone how they did it. With a unique diagonal arrangement of the camera lenses, and some other architectural solutions to the iPhone design, they were able to fit their best-ever dual camera system onto the iPhone 13. This includes the largest Wide camera sensor on the iPhone to date, as well as faster sensors for the Ultra Wide camera and Apple’s sensor-shift image stabilisation hardware. The end result: a camera system that offers more details even in the dark, captures 47% more light leading to image quality improvements across the board, and stabilised shots for the more dynamic photography anywhere you go.

It’s not just the hardware that makes the iPhone 13 camera the best you’ll find on a modern flagship smartphone: this year, they’ve made huge leaps in applying software and artificial intelligence to improve camera performance, and all of these contribute to the iPhone 13 camera’s breathtaking quality and revolutionary versatility. One of the best new features of the iPhone 13 camera is the all-new Cinematic Mode, bringing professional studio-worthy camera enhancements through AI to help you create beautiful effects and transitions – all in Dolby Vision HDR.

iPhone 13 Battery Life

As a high-performance smartphone, the Apple iPhone has had a history of struggling with battery performance. While it offers some of the best performance and most powerful components you can find on a smartphone, the trade-off has always been a shorter battery life. However, Apple’s been hard at work on this problem for some years now, and their efforts have begun to bear some significant fruit.

According to the announcement, the new iPhone 13 lineup comes with larger batteries across all models – larger than the 2,227 mAh and 2,815 mAh batteries on the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12/iPhone 12 Pro, respectively – but the biggest change in battery life will be thanks to the more power-efficient components that powers the iPhone 13. Built with the new A15 Bionic chip which offers superior performance and power-efficiency over every other Apple SoC to date, the iPhone 13 and its variants offer significantly better battery performance than their predecessors. Here’s a table showcasing how the battery has improved on the iPhone 13, according to official data from Apple:

As we can see in the table above, the iPhone 13 completely surpasses the iPhone 12 in terms of battery life, and when you consider that it’s faster and more powerful than any other iPhone before it, the longer battery life is a marvel that only serves to make the Apple user experience better.

Storage

The iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max are the first iPhones ever to sport 1TB storage configurations, although it might not be the most easily affordable option with Apple charging upwards of $800 for the upgrade. That said, power users will certainly rejoice at the option for double the maximum storage of last year’s iPhone 12. Plus, since Apple makes their own high-speed storage hardware, you’re getting best-in-class storage performance on your smartphone – and a whole terabyte of it, at that.

On the lower end of the storage spectrum, Apple decided to do away with the 64GB option, meaning every product in the iPhone 13 lineup starts with a base configuration of 128GB of storage.

Build Quality & Durability

Apple iPhones have gotten stronger and more durable over the years – indeed, they’ve pretty much succeeded at their attempt to get rid of their reputation for selling thousand-dollar pieces of shatterable glass – and the iPhone 13 is supposedly the most durable one yet.

First, the entire iPhone 13 lineup comes with an IP68 rating that’s supposed to be the best in the industry. IP68 is an international standard for dust, dirt, and sand resistance, as well as water resistance. Many phones have IP68 ratings, but the iPhone 13 set the bar even higher with industry-leading protection and durability against the elements.

Second, the iPhone 13 sports the latest Ceramic Shield technology from Apple, which they boast is tougher and more durable than any other smartphone glass. Combining this with their new flat-edge design, and you have one durable smartphone that should be resistant to all kinds of dents, cracks, and other potentially fatal damages.

iPhone 13 Singapore New Features

Advanced 5G Capabilities

While 5G is revolutionizing the way we use the internet all over the world, with blazing-fast speeds that are leagues ahead of previous-generation internet, the iPhone 13 supposedly offers an even better 5G experience with customized hardware design that improves speed and battery efficiency dynamically as you use 5G.

SharePlay

FaceTime gets leveled up on the new iPhone 13, with the addition of the SharePlay feature which makes watching videos and listening to music a shared, collaborative experience.

Spatial Audio

The new iPhone 13 also comes with new Spatial Audio features that offers enhanced directional sound experiences for its users. On the FaceTime app. Spatial Audio allows for a more in-touch, immersive experience that lets you hear whoever’s speaking depending on their position on your screen.

Photographic Styles

Apple’s Camera got a significant upgrade, and one of the best new software features on the iPhone 13 is Photographic Styles, which lets users have access to a set of camera presets to help them capture moments in style.

Improved Night Mode

Better camera hardware might have bumped up the iPhone 13’s image quality by a wide margin, but the new and improved Night Mode feature extends the phone’s capacity for ultra-high quality photos even in the dark. Capture more details in your photographs, even under poor lighting conditions.

Smart HDR 4

HDR images already offer impressive quality and resolution improvements, but Apple’s decided to take it even further with the latest rendition of their AI-powered HDR feature, Smart HDR 4. Combining computational photography techniques and artificial intelligence, iPhone 13 is ready to take the best photographs ever on a smartphone.

Featuring iOS 15

One of the biggest changes to the iPhone lineup might not be hardware. Shipping with the brand-new iOS 15, the iPhone 13 has some exciting new features and software enhancements to give users the unique, polished smartphone experience that Apple is known for.
