Without forgetting the interior, where the beating heart of the new generation is kept. The processor is called A 15 Bionic , built from Apple to TSMC with 5nm production process. This translates into improved performance and lower energy consumption – on paper – than in the past.
The cameras have been further implemented: on the iPhone 13 And 13 mini there are two sensors, both from 12 MP , equipped with a new ISP, with Sensor-Shift Optical Image Stabilization for videos and photos with low light and Cinematic Mode for the blur effect on the background even in videos.

The dual camera supports Smart HDR 4 (recognizes up to 4 people in the scene, optimizes contrast, skin tone and lighting for each one) and an improved night mode. The TrueDepth camera also supports all new features, including Cinema mode. Finally, the photographic styles allow you to customize each shot with parameters set manually or by preset: these are “smart” filters that are applied in different areas of the photo to ensure that some fundamental elements of the shot are preserved correctly.
The lineup offers 5G connectivity, and Apple will double support for next-generation networks to beyond 200 telephone operators more than 60 Countries for signal improvement . As for the battery, the Cupertino company promises a significant improvement in autonomy. On iPhone 13 mini you get 1.5 hours longer than iPhone 12 mini, which become 2, 5 extra hours for iPhone 13 compared to the previous generation.
The display has the same diagonals as the previous models: 5.4 “for 13 mini, 6.1 “for 13 , and both retain the same Ceramic Shield protection and Super Retina XDR technology .

The magnets (also by MagSafe) come from rare earths recycled to the 100%, as it is partly recycled material at 100% the one present in the logic board (tin and solders) and in the battery management unit (solders). Apple plans to remove all plastic from the packaging by 2025.
