Here we are a week after the presentation of the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 Pro. Like every year, Apple sent demonstration copies to some American journalists who are giving us their first impressions today. They are good and without surprises. Our colleagues at The Verge, who as always produce excellent videos, cover most of the topics in the two reviews below.
In short, the iPhone 13 could very well have been called iPhone 12s: it is an improved iPhone 12 with better cameras, better battery life (although the mini model may remain a bit tight), the notch of reduced size and doubled storage. Apple did not claim to revolutionize everything this year: there are no particular surprises, and it is very good that way because the basics of the iPhone 12 were excellent. On the software side, the kinematic mode is perceived as nice but limited.
As for the iPhone 13 Pro, the cameras go even further both in terms of image quality (especially in low light) and features (3x telephoto, macro mode), the autonomy is still improved and ProMotion technology (120 Hz screen) is attractive. There isn’t such a big gap, however, as Apple would have it be believed with the classic iPhone 13: Pro models are still reserved for users who put a lot of emphasis on detail.
You can find dedicated articles from The Verge (iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro) as well as the first handholds of other publications and youtubers such as Engadget, CNET, CNBC, Marques Brownlee, Rene Ritchie and iJustine. We will receive the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro on Friday and publish our own test as soon as possible.
The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro are on sale at the Apple Store and the first deliveries are expected this Friday, September 24. You can also find the new smartphones at resellers like Fnac, Darty, Amazon, Rue du Commerce, Boulanger or CDiscount.
