First, there are iPhone 13 reviews so let’s take a look at what our colleagues had to say about the new lineup.
Initial reviews seem to all agree on the better battery life. MKBHD, The Verge and Engadget all praised the battery life of the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max. Apple says that the new A15 Bionic chipset is super energy efficient and the LTPO 120Hz OLED panel is providing further benefits in this regard. However, as The Verge’s Dieter Bonn pointed out, the significant increase in battery capacity is the main contributor to solid battery life.
He said a full day of shooting 4K videos, photos, and even tethering on other smartphones drove his iPhone 13 Pro by 20% with over 5 hours of screen-on time. MKBHD reported a screen-on time of 5 hours, with 50% left in the tank, again on the regular Pro.

Another big upgrade is obviously the screen, which is now sharper and sharper, at least on the Pro model. There’s not much to talk about here, as both The Verge and MKBHD say they’re happy that Apple finally brought the HRR screen to their flagship phones, even though it’s a long-overdue feature.
Although it’s not a major update, the cameras on all four iPhones have improved. The larger sensor and better ISP capabilities inside the A15 Bionic have helped improve the camera experience compared to its predecessors, but those improvements will only be noticed by those who really watch closely.
All three reviews state that daylight performance is almost identical to the previous generation, but low-light photos look better than before, with the more prominent change being the dedicated night mode. The latter seems to retain the shadows without any exaggeration thus creating more balanced and real-life photographs.
The most noticeable difference according to The Verge and MKBHD is the ultrawide camera, which is now better in almost every way. The telephoto camera takes a hit in low light conditions, which is to be expected due to the long, 3x zoom.

The new macro feature is good too, much nicer than most Android phones that actually have dedicated macro shooters, but the automatic switch to macro mode is a nightmare. As you move closer to the subject, the software will automatically switch to Ultrawide while the toggle on the viewfinder remains at 1x. You can’t override it, which is A separate toggle or the option to switch to the main camera would be nice when you want a close-up shot using the main sensor, as MKBHD points out.
Impressions of Engadget’s regular 13 and Mini weren’t so appealing, though. The review said the Vanilla 13 can last up to two days on a single charge, but it doesn’t outdo the competition, while the 13 Mini’s stamina has improved over the previous generation, but it barely lasted a day. May last during light use.
The newly advertised Cinematic Mode, which is more of a video portrait mode, looks a bit better than Android’s based on samples, but both Dieter Bohn and Marks Brownlee say it needs more work. It’s capped at [email protected] and has a little roughness around the edges when shooting your subject, quite a bit.
Finally, as one might have guessed, the in-hand feel of the new iPhones isn’t all that different from the iPhone 12 lineup. MKBHD says the extra weight may be felt by those who have gotten used to the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, but it’s certainly not something to stress over. The notch really doesn’t seem that small and Apple hasn’t taken advantage of the extra screen real estate. The Verge also seems to agree with Marx on the camera bump – it’s thicker and definitely more prominent than before.
