The improved Super Retina XDR OLED displays deliver a contrast ratio for true blacks and a 28 per cent increase in max outdoor brightness at 800 nits, with higher peak brightness for HDR content like photos and videos at 1200 nits, all while being more power-efficient.
The new wide camera, with 1.7 µm pixels, comes with the biggest sensor ever in an iPhone dual-camera system and is capable of gathering 47 per cent more light for less noise and brighter results. Sensor-shift OIS — a technology introduced in iPhone 12 Pro Max and not found in any other smartphone — also comes to the Wide camera, even in the more compact iPhone 13 mini.
On the other hand, the dual camera on iPhone 13 promises to offer improved colour, contrast, and lighting for each subject in a group photo, including in challenging conditions, making images more true to life, as well as improved Night mode.
Coming to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, the smartphones feature Super Retina XDR display with ProMotion featuring an adaptive refresh rate up to 120Hz, making the touch experience faster and more responsive. The pro camera system has all-new Ultra Wide, Wide, and Telephoto cameras.
All the four iPhones run iOS 15 and are powered by Apple’s own A15 Bionic chipset. The company claims that the processor is 50% faster as compared to its competition available in the market.
