Last night’s Apple event saw CEO Tim Cook reveal the company’s product line for next year. It featured everything from the Apple Watch and iPad to the massive iPhone 13.
While many of the new Apple product upgrades can best be described as incremental, arguably the biggest leap forward is in cameras – which Apple calls their “most advanced to date.”
The entire iPhone 13 lineup – from Mini to Pro – has received camera upgrades, with sensor sizes increasing across the board. This will not only give the picture quality a big blow.
Apple also claims that the lens captures 47% more light than on the iPhone 12, which means low-light photographs will be better than ever.
By far the biggest upgrades are to the premium Pro line, however. Deemed to be the “three most powerful cameras ever created by Apple,” the Pro models feature new main sensors and a faster f / 1.5 ultra-wide lens.
They also improved the telephoto lens, which now has a new Night mode and improved zoom. An AI setting will even detect when there are stars in sight and adjust focus and exposure to help you take nighttime shots that kill.
Beyond still photographs, Apple has made a big deal on some new motion video features. A “cinematic mode” dynamically adjusts depth of field and focus on videos and provides enhanced stabilization, letting you shoot impressive Hollywood movie-style shots in the palm of your hand. The launch event demonstrated how it works by showcasing a few short films shot by directors over the phone.
Fortunately, Apple won’t be raising the price of the new iPhones, with the standard model starting at £ 799. If you want to grab the iPhone 13 Pro Max, you’d better save up – it can cost up to £ 1,500 from new. You can get yours through Apple’s website or other retailers.
