In a word: Today, Apple announced the entire iPhone 13 lineup. Both mainstream models include the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, both phones come standard with 128GB of storage, which is double the amount. the capacity of the models they replace. New non-professional iPhones add several features, including a new A15 Bionic chip, a smaller front sensor notch, a more advanced dual-camera array, and more.
Apple’s standard iPhone line retains the same flat-edged design with only a few slight visual variations. The notch on the front-facing sensor array is a bit smaller, a 20% reduction according to Apple’s calculations. The iPhone 13 has a dual camera on the back, similar to its predecessor, but the lenses are installed diagonally instead of stacked. Other than that, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini look like last year’s models with 6.1 and 5.4-inch displays, respectively.
Apple made the biggest changes inside the device, starting with the new silicon. The iPhone 13 is powered by Apple’s 5nm A15 Bionic. The A15 sports a 6-core processor with two high-performance cores and four high-efficiency cores. With nearly 15 billion transistors, Apple claims the A15 is up to 50% faster than its competition.
The A15 also houses a 4-core graphics processor which is 30% faster than any other smartphone. Graphically intensive games should run smoothly, with “more realistic visuals and lighting effects.”
The A15 is complemented by Apple’s 16-core neural engine, capable of 15.8 trillion operations per second. The neural engine is a processor dedicated to machine learning applications. It will handle iOS 15 features like Live Text, which allows users to generate copyable text from photos. It will also deal with ML workloads related to the new camera system, such as rack focus (more on this in a minute).
