Apple’s iPhone 13 lineup is expected to be limited upon release, with significant price increases, but it also has some intriguing (and extremely useful) enhancements that enthusiasts will like. They’ve only gotten better since then
Bloomberg’s famed Apple insider Mark Gurman has provided a wealth of information regarding the impending iPhone 13 line-up in a new exclusive. Some of it verifies things we already knew, but there are some shocking disclosures as well, especially so close to the film’s debut
iPhone 13 Surprise Upgrades
Gurman’s main news is around the range’s large new rear cameras, as he’s introduced a fascinating new recording mode called’Cinematic Video,’ which replicates the bokeh effect found in Portrait Mode images in your movies.
Furthermore, while such a function has been rumored in the past, Gurman takes it a step farther. Cinematic Video, he continues, is more than simply a bokeh lawyer, and it’s also configurable, like Portrait Mode, “allowing users to tweak the level of blur after recording” as well as adjust lighting and background effects. This necessitates extremely powerful hardware.
Additionally, Gurman claims that Apple will release a considerably improved system of filters for still photographs.
The new iPhone 13 filters will be able to target certain items and subjects within the photograph, rather just applying the filter to the entire image. If this works half as well in practice as it does in theory, I believe partial/targeted filters will be the next major Instagram craze.
Gurman also reveals what appears to be an iPhone 13 Pro-only feature known as ‘ProRes.’ For photos, this is a higher-quality video format akin to ProRAW (currently an iPhone 12-Pro exclusive).
ProRes will be comparable to ProRAW in that it will give users more editing flexibility over their footage.
ProRes will almost certainly take up a lot more storage space than normal video, adding validity to rumors that Apple will release a 1TB iPhone 13 Pro
iPhone 13 Confirmations
Gurman also corroborated some of the major iPhone 13 leaks we’ve seen so far, in addition to his new revelations.
He claims that Apple will launch 120Hz ProMotion displays (presumably just on Pro models) with a smaller notch, as well as a faster A15 chip
Gurman has also hinted at an always-on display, and other sources indicate Apple will add nextgen WiFi, a faster 5G modem, considerably larger batteries, and somewhat faster charging.
Apple, on the other hand, has canceled plans to bring back Touch ID for this year’s iPhones, according to Gurman.
Of course, despite Apple’s explicit warning last month, the main question now is whether the company can produce enough iPhone 13 models to meet demand. Or, knowing that the first iPhone 14 leaks have already arrived, the smart money will wait
Apple’s new iPhones, codenamed D16, D17, D63 and D64, are just a few of the new devices poised to launch in the coming months.
The company is also working on revamped MacBook Pros with in-house chips likely to be dubbed M1X, a redesigned iPad mini and an entry-level iPad geared at students. It’s also preparing new Apple Watches and entry-level AirPods.
New ProRes Video-Recording Feature
A new ProRes video-recording feature will let iPhone users capture clips in a higher-quality format that gives editors more control during post-production.
The format is used by professional video editors in the film industry and isn’t normally intended for the mass market in part because of its large file sizes. ProRes will record in either HD and 4K resolutions on the next iPhones.
The ProRes feature would follow last year’s addition of ProRAW, a higher-quality still photo file format that gives professional editors more control. Like with ProRAW, the ProRes video recording may be exclusive to the pricier Pro models.
Control of look and colours
Another feature will let users better control the look of colours and highlights in their pictures. Users will be able to choose from several styles to apply to their photos, including one for showing colours at either a warmer or cooler temperature while keeping whites neutral.
Another option will add a more dramatic look with deeper shadows and more contrast, and the company is planning a more balanced style for showing shadows and true-to-life colors with a brighter appearance.
The feature will differ from standard filters, available in the iPhone’s Camera app since 2013, by precisely applying changes to objects and people across the photos using artificial intelligence, rather than applying a single filter across the entire picture.
Beyond the camera enhancements, the new iPhones will get relatively modest upgrades. Last year, Apple revamped the iPhone design, added 5G wireless networking and updated the camera hardware. For this year, the company will retain the same 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch regular sizes and 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch Pro screen dimensions, as well as their designs.
The new phones will include a faster A15 chip and a smaller notch, also known as the display cutout, in addition to new screen technology that could enable a faster refresh rate for smoother scrolling.
The Cupertino, California-based company typically unveils its new iPhones in September, but last year’s launch was delayed until October due to production complications stemming from Covid-19. With Apple now pushing back its office return by several weeks, the company’s next iPhone launch is likely to be virtual.
An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment. Apple shares rose about 1% in the first hour of trading Tuesday.
