Apple’s Fall Product Event: iPhone 13, What’s New, and Why We Are Not Super Excited
A few notable mildly exciting mentions for the iPhone 13 include a smaller notch, a somewhat faster A15 Bionic chip, improvements to the ultrawide lens, dynamic refresh rates, and bigger batteries.
Apple’s Fall Product Event was a little bit underwhelming. We knew Apple would announce iPhone 13 and we also got hints that the product wouldn’t be much of an upgrade. Unfortunately, it isn’t. It only got spec’d up in its battery life adding what Apple says is 1.5 to 2.5 hours longer battery life depending on the model, and a few spec bumps to the A14 Bionic that was then repackaged as the A15 Bionic.
Apple also introduced the iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. It also added to the lineup a new iPad and an all-new iPad Mini. Apple also announced the Apple Watch Series 7 in its virtual event held on the 14th of September. Apple’s Fall Product Event was underwhelming and fell short of its Spring-Loaded Event.
