In September 2021, Apple unveiled the iPhone 13, which comes at exactly the same price as last year's model, but with several upgrades, such as an improved screen, longer battery life, significantly improved cameras, and we still have support for 5G networks and MagSafe wireless charging.

It is worth noting that this is only one phone in the series unlike 3 other devices that are version of Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and finally we have a release Pro Max. Apple wants to tell all users that there is an iPhone for every user that fits their budget perfectly.

But the surprise is that everyone prefers the standard model, which has been proven by the sales of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 series, as it always shares the main specifications with the Pro and Pro Max models at an excellent price, and therefore most users accept to waive the additional specifications in exchange for buying it with a cheaper price difference of about $ 200 at least.

iPhone 13 Review

Do you know why the standard edition is the best seller even with three other versions of the iPhone 13?

Because it offers real value for an affordable price, where the user gets all the features found in the higher models, which is what happens here for sure, we have the same screen, but with a standard refresh rate instead of 120 Hz, which is the most prominent fatal flaw.

We also have the same processor along with an excellent main camera and improved battery life. Some users may find paying an extra $200 for the Pro version that comes with a ProMotion display, a telephoto sensor, and a larger battery.

It makes sense but this phone is aimed at the user who wants to buy an iPhone at the lowest possible price, and who does not have the option of expanding their budget.

So the Standard Edition is a bestseller, as it's an Apple gift for those with budgets under $1000.

Apple rarely makes design changes from one series to the next, so any change, no matter how small, is greeted with great enthusiasm from users. For the second year in a row we've had the same flat-edged design after the rounded edges were abandoned.

Those edges look nice enough and while some have grumbled over the past year, we think everyone has accepted that design now and everyone is adapting. On top of that, Apple confirmed that the iPhone 13 got improvements in terms of durability with the on-screen Ceramic Shield we saw in last year's model, as tests proved that the rounded edges of previous iPhones made them more fragile and susceptible to scratches and bumps.

For new users coming from the iPhone 11 series or below, they may have some minor difficulties getting used to that flat design as the edges go deep into the hand and make holding the phone a little tiring.

It is worth noting that the phones of the current year come with a thickness of more than the thickness of the phones of last year, which makes the comfort of the phone in the hand is not optimal.

Regarding the size of the phone, which is 6.1 inches, I find it absolutely excellent and this is the ideal standard for the size of any phone that all smartphone companies should apply, fans of large phones may object to this on the grounds that they are the best in watching multimedia, but as we mentioned, there are four Phones in the series are suitable for all tastes and whims.

If that's not the right size, we have another phone that represents the perfect solution, the iPhone 13 Mini, which comes in a size of 5.4 inches. iPhone 12 Pro Max is the opposite of it as it comes in a size of 6.7 inches which means a giant size in the hand and would be an excellent choice for fans of giant smartphones.

The notch is slightly smaller by 20% due to the miniaturization of the Face ID components. This may not be what Apple fans dreamed of, which is to get rid of the notch completely, but in return it represents a step forward, the iPhone 14 may be launched with a water drop notch or a full screen with a front camera under the screen, who knows!

The phone is available in five color options which are blue, midnight, pink, red, starlight. In all, all users will fall in love with the iPhone 13 and you will feel as if you are carrying a luxury flagship phone, and everyone will also know that you are carrying the latest Apple versions because of the rear camera that consists of two sensors placed in parallel.

The era of the primitive IPS LCD screens we last saw in the iPhone 11, which was the most prominent flaw in that phone, is over, for the second year in a row we have a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED screen that comes with improvements over last year's model screen of 800 peak brightness candle instead of 625.

This screen has a resolution of 2532 x 1170 pixels, which means a significant increase in the clarity of the content on the screen. This screen also supports HDR10 rating, allowing you to watch any videos recorded using the device's rear camera with Dolby Vision the way it was meant to be viewed.

The iPhone 13 screen is still definitely not perfect yet, and the reason is known to anyone with a recent Samsung Galaxy, Xiaomi or OnePlus phone. After months of rumors that Apple would adopt a 120Hz refresh rate in the iPhone 13 series, the company decided to abandon the high refresh rate in that phone and the Mini version, and in return I decided to use the ProMotion screen that supports a variable refresh rate from 1 to 120Hz in my Pro version. For Pro Max, the refresh rate adapts to the speed of the user's finger.

As a result, neither clicks nor swipes respond as quickly as on the two larger phones or on Android phones in the same price category as the Galaxy S21. Although the iPhone 13 is more powerful than all the competing Android flagships, its use is sometimes slower, simply because the screen is not refreshing fast. And that's something Apple should definitely try to correct in all upcoming phones, not just the Pro models, when the iPhone 14 series is revealed in 2022.

The biggest upgrade in this phone is certainly the camera, as it managed to borrow some features that were exclusive to the Pro models last year. The surprise here is that the iPhone 13 comes with the main camera of Pro Max12, along with the Sensor Shift image stabilization feature. We certainly know how good the photos are taken with the iPhone 12 Pro Max camera, and now the iPhone 13 user has the same camera, which will take excellent photos full of detail with an improved night shooting mode thanks to the great processing.

We also have an all-new and better ultra-wide lens, Apple confirmed, which will be able to let in more light and take excellent photos saturated with colour. Thus, we have a completely new camera that can compete with all competing phones in all seriousness.

The credit for improving the photographic experience is definitely thanks to the new A15 Bionic processor that comes with better processing capabilities, and let's not forget the hardware itself, which has certainly received a noticeable upgrade.

We will definitely return with more details regarding the camera experience on the ground, cinematography mode in terms of video capturing experience, and many other details.


One of the biggest upgrades that comes with the iPhone 13 is the presence of a larger battery not in the standard version but in all four series phones. During its announcement event, Apple revealed official estimates of battery life for the new iPhones and they are amazing! Not only is the Pro Max the device with the longest battery ever in an iPhone, the other new models also get huge upgrades in battery life especially the Standard Edition.

We don't have official battery sizes from Apple, as the company never discloses this information, but we do have reliable information about it from leaks. So, let's not waste time and look at these exciting changes in iPhone 13 battery life!

So far, Apple hasn't announced any iPhone as having a two-day battery life, and despite the larger batteries, the iPhone 13 series will need to be charged daily for most users.

But the big news is how much better battery life has been across all series phones! Of course, the iPhone most at risk in terms of battery life remains the Mini version, while the Standard and Pro versions will provide additional battery capacity in order to comfortably last all day long, as the iPhone 13 offers more battery life than the iPhone 12 By two and a half hours. In terms of capacity, we have a 3240mAh battery, an increase of 15% over last year's model.

Regarding fast charging, on the charging front, the phone comes without a charger included in the box, only the cable. So yes, you will have to purchase a charger separately and we advise you to choose the fastest Apple charger currently which comes with a capacity of 20W.

Internal hardware

Powered by the second 5nm processor built into any smartphone, Apple's new A15 Bionic, iPhone 13 definitely delivers the best performance in its price category. It is worth noting that the A14 Bionic in the iPhone 12 series was already better than the top Qualcomm processor for 2020, which is the Snapdragon 865 Plus, but the A15 processor widens this gap further and it is expected that on its way it will sweep both the Snapdragon 888 and 888 Plus that we saw in all the leading Android phones released this year.

We can only expect excellent performance, of course, characterized by ease and smoothness. There is no application, no matter how big the phone is, the phone cannot run it, and there is no game, whether it is graphically demanding or not, the phone cannot open it easily.

Regarding the internal configuration, we still have the same 4 GB RAM, but the internal storage has received some noticeable upgrade, as Apple no longer produces the 64 GB version, and in return we have only three versions: 128, 256, 512 GB.

iPhone 13 price

The iPhone 12 was put up for sale at a price of $ 800 for the version that comes with 64 GB, and the 128 GB version came at a price of $ 850, while the higher version 256 was put up at $ 950.

By comparing all the prices of Apple's flagship phones over the years and by examining Apple's pricing policy for its devices, the iPhone 13 was launched at the same price as the 2020 model, which is $ 800 for the standard 128 GB version, where the 64 GB version was abandoned, while the price of the 256 GB version was set for $ 900 Top 512GB version for $1100.

iPhone 13 would have been Apple’s gift to its fans, or in the sense of Apple’s closest reconciliation to its fans, as their requests and wishes that they had always dreamed of before were not met, and the first of which is a fingerprint sensor under the screen, which has become necessary due to the health conditions this year that we all have to wear The medical mask, which disables the mechanism of action of Face ID.

The second gift that we wished for was the presence of a 120Hz refresh rate for the screen, which is what Apple users have long dreamed of. There is no flagship phone at the moment that does not have a super screen with a leading refresh rate, so the presence of a refresh rate has become a necessity that must be present in all Current time phones.

All these features would have made the iPhone 13 definitely worth the wait since it would come with all the features that all Apple users have been asking for since long.

iPhone 13 unboxing

What's not in the iPhone 13 box:

In fact, continuing its trend of removing all accessories from the phone's packaging, Apple is still sticking to its decision not to include a charger with all iPhones starting last year, and the company says it expects users to already have an older charger they can use. Instead, Apple wants its users to purchase a new charger, separately.

Apple has good reasons to do this which is to protect the environment and reduce plastic waste as much as possible, although the fact that they will certainly make extra profit selling the chargers separately as well as reducing the cost of shipping cannot be ignored.

Buy iPhone 13 for:

Do not buy the phone because:

  • If you don't mind paying more for the Pro version that supports 120Hz refresh rate, Telephoto sensor and longer battery life
  • If you own an iPhone 12, the new features are within the limited framework and do not require you to upgrade your old phone
  • If you put the battery and charging as the primary criteria for selection
