Apple announces iPhone 13 range alongside new iPad and Apple Watch

Last night Apple unveiled the iPhone 13 range which boss Tim Cook has hailed as the “best iPhone we have ever created”.

While last year’s iPhone lineup had some major redesigns, Apple has instead made a series of minor changes across the four versions of the handset.

The most notable among these changes is the improvement in battery life by at least 1.5 hours on each of the devices.

The technology giant said it had also revamped all the cameras across the range, introducing a new cinematic mode allowing users to film higher-quality, cinema-like videos.

The iconic front camera notch has also been made significantly smaller compared to previous models.

Like the iPhone 12 range last year, the four new devices on offer will be the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

All these new models will be powered by the firm’s latest A15 Bionic chip, which Apple claims is 50 per cent faster than its “nearest competition”.

Notably, the new 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max will offer a one terabyte storage option for the first time, as well as support for a 120Hz screen refresh rate, which allows for smoother scrolling.

In terms of the improved battery life, Apple said the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 Pro will both offer up to 1.5 hours extra life while the iPhone 13 and iPhone Pro Max will each see up to 2.5 hours additional battery life.

Making its announcements via an online virtual event, an updated version of the iPad and a new iPad mini were also announced alongside the Apple Watch Series 7, which has been made more durable and dust resistant and has a larger screen.

Despite the range of upgrades being less substantial than last year, industry experts said Apple had still unveiled a range that would appeal to older iPhone users thinking about upgrading.

Apple confirmed all four new iPhone models would go on sale on September 24, with the iPhone 13 mini starting at £679, the iPhone 13 at £779, the 13 Pro at £949 and the 13 Pro Max at £1,049.
