Apple iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max bring 120Hz displays, overhauled cameras

14 September 2021
The Apple A15 chipset on the Pro phones has a 5-core GPU, instead of 4-core like on the vanilla models.

Sort by:

Seems the iPhone 13 Pro is cheaper in the US. The HK version of the 13 Pro starts at around US$1090 (HK$8499 to be exact)

Even mediatek gives internal 5g modem on their budget chips like dimensity 700, 800 series.
Apple said they'll take 3 more years to deliver it. Smh

What you think Xiaomi, Samsung, Huawei, Sony etc give anything more than a monkey's t0ss about you? they don't, and their business practices are in no way any more moral or less predatory than Apple's. Apple may just happen to be a little better at certain aspects of those than their competitors.

I sure am not blind to Apple's short comings, I spent as much time rolling my eyes when watching that event yesterday as I did being impressed. Hell a quick search online about any of the big players will quickly reveal there are no good guys to be found here. I simply enjoy using certain Apple products more than the competition.

If that changes then I'll ditch Apple without hesitation. But if I start to get the idea I should take some moral stance against the tech giants due to the way they play the game, well let's just say I'll have a hard time finding a diamond in the rough.

The changes are pretty good (for an iPhone at least), but I expect to see more stuff to come. I'm planning to purchase the iPhone 16 (?) in 2024, and there's a few things that are still missing. I expect to see a QHD (or higher) display, a higher refresh rate, even better camera improvements (especially for the sensor sizes, and maybe some megapixel count bump to like 16 or 21 at least), in-screen built fingerprint sensor and much more. This iPhone feels like a 2020 phone more than a 2021, but Apple is known for being behind competition in many areas.

Apple could've at least increased the RAM. I dealt with YouTube refreshing on an iPhone 12 mini as much as I did on my Pixel 3. They both only have 4 GBs of RAM.

Still stuck with Lightning cable when iPads have already moved onto USB-C. Still no split-screen. I can play GameCube or Wii games on one side of my Flip 3 while a movie plays on the other side while in landscape.

The iPhone continues to bore me to tears like its always done since trying iOS on a first gen iPod touch in July of 2008. I remember learning to jailbreak it after 5 days from YouTube because I was so bored with iPhone OS 1.1.4 right away. I think 2008 was the only time I had fun with a iDevice's software.

I've used iPhone since the early days. Nothing really has changed in 13 years. The 13 is the most boring upgrade in 5 years since going from the 7 to 8. Maybe smaller than that. The 8 finally did offer wireless charging. Took Apple like 8 years to copy Palm Pre and 5 years to copy Nexus 4.

It wasn't courage that led them to remove the headphone jack, it was so that they can sell you more accessories to offset the decline of smartphone sales.

It wasn't about the environment when they removed the accessories out of the box, it was to further increase profit margins and to able to ship more iPhones while spending the same in shipping costs.

It's not about innovation that Apple continues to use the Lighting connector on their iPhones or compatibility with previous generations, it's about charging money for a proprietary connector for any manufacturer that wants to license the use of that connector in their products.

Apple talks about privacy yet is happy to make backdoor deals with companies that profit from user data. Nothing about the iPhone is special except for the ability to say that you Apple tirelessly fight against right to repair bills so that it can be the sole provider of repairs and parts of their products and charge twice if not triple the amount it would cost to repair one of their devices.

As a tech enthusiast, this sucks the fun out of the air. To makes matters even worst, it's saddening to see fellow techies go at each other in the name of a company that genuinely does not care about us. This and many more reasons is why it's so hard to have a grown up conversation with any brand loyalist, because their own “loyalty” blinds them to topics and issues like these.
