The iPhone 13 made it’s debut with 4 versions to choose from, ranging from an inexpensive Mini to a feature-packed Max Pro. The design differences are minor from current iPhones, but the notorious notch has been sized down. Each phone is running on Apple’s new A15 Bionic chip, allowing for enhanced features, and storage options have also gotten a boost. A new video feature called Cinematic Mode was announced plus the camera received updates to three available lenses – telephoto, wide, and ultrawide.
The iPad Mini received a sizeable update; the iPad is thinner, with a slightly bigger screen. The home button is gone, the Touch ID sensor has been moved to the outer rim, and the bottom now contains a USB-C port. The base-model, and cheapest iPad, received updates to its performance, getting an A13 Bionic chip, as well as updates to its camera.
