The Apple iPhone 13 iterate upon the successful iPhone 12 with new cameras and longer battery life. The notch has been reduced in size, and the rear camera module now sits at a diagonal. In addition, the A15 processor brings more speed and efficiency to every task.
Apple didn’t radically redesign the iPhone 13, but that doesn’t make it any less of an upgrade than the iPhone 12 before it. The new A15 Bionic processor improves photo processing, and the battery life is extended by an hour or more in regular use.
More advanced technology changes were reserved for the iPhone 13 Pro models. However, the standard iPhone still has plenty to offer at a much lower price. Fans of the mini iPhone should take particular interest in the 2021 model, considering it may be the last.
Apple doesn’t change its device designs but once every few years, so the iPhone 13 retains the iPhone 12 redesign. Each model features flat sides made from aluminum sandwiched between glass plates.
There aren’t many design changes to differentiate the 2021 and 2020 iPhones beyond new color options and rearrangement of the camera module. However, the design differences are enough to require a new case since certain parts of the iPhone have moved.
For example, the speaker grill is higher in the bezel now since the notch is slightly smaller.
The first design change users will notice is the smaller notch. After years of using the same-sized notch to house the Face ID components, Apple has finally reduced its size by 20%.
