What You Need to Know About the Camera...
A striking change from last year's iPhone 12 Pro Max to the latest baseline iPhone 13 is its increased sensor size to 47% larger, allowing it to capture more light in low-light conditions and less noise. The Wide sensor comes in at 12-megapixels with an f/1.6 aperture, while the new 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera features a more fast f/2.4 lens with a 120-degree field of view. iPhone 13 additionally boasts a sensor-shift stabilization technology featured in the 12 Pro Max to reduce unwanted vibrations within the sensor.
Overall, this is the most advanced pro camera system ever on an iPhone, boasting a Super Retina XDR display with ProMotion; a massive leap in battery life; A15 Bionic, the fastest chip in a smartphone; an advanced 5G experience; and so much more.
The promotion features an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120Hz, making the touch experience faster and more responsive. The pro camera system gets its most significant advancement ever with new Ultra Wide, Wide, and Telephoto cameras that capture stunning photos and video, powered by the unmatched performance of A15 Bionic, more powerful than the leading competition. These technologies enable impressive new photo capabilities never before possible on iPhone, like macro photography on the new Ultra-Wide camera and up to 2.2x improved low-light performance on the new Wide camera (Apple, 2021).
Optimized to work seamlessly with the all-new iOS 15 and powered by the new image signal processor (ISP) in the A15 Bionic, Apple's iPhone 13 Pro lineup features the best camera system to bless an iPhone to date. The Wide camera offers a larger sensor with 1.9 µm pixels, far less noise due to faster shutter speeds, and crisp detail that can be seen from a mile away. Paired with a beautiful low aperture of f/1.5, this Wide camera on the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max offers excellent improvements to low-light photography.
The latest Ultra-Wide camera features a stellar new f/1.8 aperture and improved autofocus to produce cleaner, brighter images in darker environments. Additionally, and with great excitement, Apple now offers a macro-photography feature using advanced software to magnify objects to appear larger than life. Macro also expands to video mode, including Slo-mo and Timelapse.
