The iPhone 13 is a line of iPhones developed by Apple Inc. The next generation models were announced by Apple in a special event on September 14, 2021. It became available for pre-order on September 17 and shipped on September 24, 2021.[1]


Like the rest of the iPhone 13 line, it is powered by the six-core Apple A15 "Bionic" processor and features Ceramic Shield on the front screen and back panel. It is splash, water, and dust resistant.[2] It supports 5G networks for improved speed (up to 4Gbps) with the ability to automatically switch to LTE as needed to conserve battery life. The wireless changing coil inside the phone includes MagSafe for magnetic alignment and attachment of chargers and accessories. The Lightning connector supports faster charging though USB-C.[1]

The Super Retina XDR display features a 6.1-inch OLED screen with a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio and a resolution of 2532 x 1170 at 460ppi. The aluminum case resembles the iPhone 12 and is available in 5 different colors: "starlight" (white), "midnight" (black), blue, pink, and (PRODUCT)RED. The rear-facing dual-camera system includes larger ultra-wide and wide angle lens than the previous generation in a diagonal configuration.[2]

Preliminary reports

Benchmarks from the new Apple A15 chip indicate improved GPU performance. However, benchmarks submitted after continued use indicate the presence of throttling.[3]

Up to seven new model variants had been discovered in mandatory filings within an Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) database.[4] Apple's orders for new voice coil motors, to be used in a camera module manufactured by Largan Precision, is reported to exceed supply chain orders of all other Android phone manufacturers combined.[5]
