In terms of photography, the model has two 12MP rear sensors, capable of up to 5X digital zoom, as well as a 12MP front camera.

iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max

In practice, what really sets the models apart is their screen size: while the iPhone 13 Pro has a dimension of 6.1 inches, the iPhone 13 Pro Max has an area of ​​6.7 inches. Naturally, the extra space is also used to add longer battery life, ensuring up to 28 hours of use – while playing video.

iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max can be found in the market with prices starting at R$7099 and R$7299 respectively.

iPhone 14 and everything we know so far

After Apple’s “standard releases”, future models should offer incremental improvements in their design – that is, without huge leaps in changes. Through frequent leaks, the input variants, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, are expected to inherit the A15 Bionic processor while the “Professional” versions received the new A16 Bionic processor.

In terms of visuals, the most significant change was the new front-facing camera module, which adopts a pillbox shape and forgoes the “notch”. The component will also receive autofocus, as well as improvements in taking photos in low-light environments.

Still talking about photographic capacity, it is worth noting that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max should receive 48-megapixel sensors, capable of recording high-quality videos in 8K. Long overdue, the potential change would break Apple’s “tradition” of keeping its cameras at 12MP – a specification in use since the launch of the iPhone 6.

Is it worth it?

Without further ado, it’s a lot More useful to wait for the release of iPhone 14, But not necessarily for its merits. Traditionally, it is the norm for Apple to lower the price of its “older models” as soon as new models are announced. In this way, the high price makes the well-established devices in the market more attractive.

In case the proposal seems controversial, it is also worth noting that intergenerational changes will not be expressive, as well as mitigated by excellent support for Apple OS updates. However, in practice, the most important developments are for the professional line of the iPhone 14, which is intended for the most demanding users. For the general public, iPhone 13 will continue to provide a satisfying experience for many seasons to come.
