With the iPhone 13 reveal behind us, it is time to learn the fantastic print and see what we missed. And this yr, there was a whole lot of fantastic print.
That contains some stunning information concerning the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro. And we have now some not-so-great information concerning the Apple Watch and the brand new iPad mini.
1. The iPhone 13 Pro has a extra highly effective GPU than the iPhone 13
Kudos to 9to5Mac for noticing this one. While all iPhone 13 fashions nominally share the identical processor, the A15 Bionic, the iPhone 13 Pro’s GPU is extra highly effective than the one within the iPhone 13.
More exactly, in keeping with Apple’s specifications, the iPhone 13 Pro’s GPU has 5 cores, in comparison with the four-core GPU within the iPhone 13. The further energy may be there for an additional characteristic that solely the iPhone 13 Pro has, which is ProRes video help.
2. The iPhone 13’s notch is narrower however taller
The rumors concerning the smaller notch on the brand new iPhones had been true, however in actuality, the distinction is hardly noticeable.
Curiously, whereas the notch on the brand new iPhones is a bit narrower, it is also slightly taller. In whole, it nonetheless takes up much less of the cellphone’s display screen floor than earlier than.
Oh, and sorry, regardless of the smaller notch, you continue to won’t get battery percentage within the iPhone 13’s Status Bar.
3. Shooting in 4K with ProRes requires at the very least 256GB of storage
This brings us to a different element that was straightforward to overlook: If you intend to shoot ProRes video in 4K decision, you are going to want an iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max with at the very least 256GB of storage.
The purpose for that is easy: Shooting ProRes in such excessive decision will produce recordsdata that can take up your cellphone’s storage actually quick. In reality, should you’re actually excited by taking pictures ProRes video, you need to most likely get an iPhone 13 Pro or Pro Max with 512GB and even 1TB of storage (although that final model will cost you).
4. Oh, and ProRes will not be accessible immediately
Apple did point out this, nevertheless it was straightforward to overlook: ProRes taking pictures is one choice that will not be accessible immediately. According to Apple, it is going to be accessible “in a future iOS 15 update,” and just for iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
On the subject of issues that will not be accessible immediately, Apple Watch 7 is amongst them. Apple merely mentioned all fashions will likely be accessible “later this fall.”
5. The Apple Watch 7 apparently has the identical processor because the Apple Watch 6
This is a little bit of a bummer. New Apple merchandise usually characteristic a extra highly effective processor, however this isn’t the case on the brand new Apple Watch 7, which seems to share the identical processor because the Apple Watch 6.
Sure, the brand new Apple Watch has a few different upgrades over its predecessor, most significantly a barely bigger show. But provided that the design hasn’t modified, and the processor is not quicker, one has to wonder if ready for the Apple Watch 8 is the best transfer.
This is just not official info, thoughts you; it is in keeping with developer Steve Throughton-Smith, who discovered the supporting information within the newest model of Xcode.
We’ll know more about what’s inside when the Apple Watch 7 gets inevitably taken apart, which should happen right after it hits the market later this fall.
6. The iPad mini has no headphone jack
We’ve covered this one in more detail, but the short version is this: Unlike its predecessor, the new iPad mini doesn’t have a 3.5mm audio connector. Sorry, of us.
