In order not to change its habits, Apple presented two new Pro smartphones at its September conference: the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max. On the program: a reduced notch, a 120 Hz panel, new photosensor. Discover all the new features in our article.
New features for iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max
As on the other two models, the Pro versions benefit from a notch 20% smaller than that of the iPhone 12. For the rest of the design, Apple has announced the arrival of polished stainless steel borders, a Ceramic Shield protection for the screen, and matte glass on the back.
The colors for this year are black, silver, gold and blue.
As usual, we find a 6.1-inch panel for the iPhone 13 Pro and 6.7 inches for the Pro Max. The big news lies in the arrival of a refresh rate of 120 Hz on these screens, but also Promotion, a feature allowing to take advantage of an adaptive refresh rate. Depending on the content watched, the refresh rate will thus juggle between 10 Hz and 120 Hz. Another novelty, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 Pro are equipped with a “ Super Retina XDR ” screen with a maximum brightness of 1000 cd / m².
Apple then announces that the two smartphones benefit from the same photo module. It is made up of three new sensors: a 77mm telephoto lens with 3x zoom, an ultra-wide-angle (f / 1.8), and a wide-angle (f / 1.5). The iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max have also armed with a macro mode thanks to the ultra-wide-angle, but also a night mode on all the sensors to capture photos in low light. The Cinematic Mode is introduced on the standard model and the mini will also be there. In addition to that, they will later be able to enjoy video recording in ProRes Video quality at 4K 30 FPS.
