The new generation of Apple smartphones was unveiled on 14 September 2021. The design of the
iPhone 13 is almost unchanged from the iPhone 12. Even the notch at the top of the screen has
shrunk just a little, though we've been waiting for something more substantial.
The cameras, though given new features, still haven't changed much since last year's model. The
iPhone 13 and 13 mini versions have shifted one module, and the two Pro versions are no different
at all. They didn't even say much about AR.
There were rumours before the presentation that we would get satellite communication, but there
was no word on that at the event itself. So in extreme situations, the user of the new iPhones will
only be able to rely on themselves.
Perhaps something more is in store for us next year, but so far Apple hasn't even replaced Lightning
with USB Type-C. Overall, though, the price was OK. We were expecting something much more
Why Apple hasn't released the iPhone 12s. Take a wild guess
For a long time, if you remember, no one particularly believed that Apple would release the iPhone
13. Still, numbering the flagship smartphone lineup with that number is rather reckless from a
marketing point of view. In the US and many other countries around the world it is considered
unlucky, which is why in some buildings the 12th floor is immediately followed by the 14th. In
general, the level of scepticism towards the number "13" is quite high. That's why people were
waiting for the iPhone 12s instead of the iPhone 13. This would have been justified from an ethical
point of view, and from the point of view of fairness to the consumer, because the novelty really
turned out to be more like a continuation of last year's model than something radically new. But
Apple clearly decided long ago that the iPhone 12s was not to be.
How the iPhone 13 is hurting older iPhones
As sceptics predicted, the launch of the iPhone 13 was not without surprises. The new generation
iPhone has been called boring, and advice has been given to postpone the purchase of a new iPhone
until next year. There was a rare unanimity in the media – skip it and don't buy it. Something like this
happens every year, but a campaign against Apple of this magnitude has never before taken place in
my memory. The sceptics were right, but only in part. As is most often the case, the new generation
iPhones are very well bought. The surprise is that they are being bought even too well, and Apple will
have to make some sacrifices to deal with this scourge. Not without sacrifice. The sacrifice will be the
older iPhone models that are still on sale.
A comparison of the charging speeds of the iPhone 13, 13 Pro, 13 mini and 13 Pro Max. Which one is
I don't know about you, I was pleasantly surprised by the iPhone 13's battery capacity and battery
life. And how long does it take for different iPhone 13 models to recover from zero to a hundred
percent battery charge? Does charging time depend on battery capacity? And how does the speed of
charging change? We know that the closer an iPhone's battery charge gets to a hundred percent, the
slower it charges. PhoneArena has fully discharged the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and
iPhone 13 Pro Max batteries and tracked their charging speed. Charging the smartphones using a 20-
watt AC adapter and MagSafe.
