With a design that is largely similar to last year’s phones, Apple is relying on significant upgrades inside the iPhone 13 Pro lineups to peak smartphone enthusiasts interest.
The most advanced pro camera system ever available on an iPhone; Super Retina XDR display with ProMotion; a significant increase in battery life A15 Bionic, the fastest smartphone chip; advanced 5G experience; and a lot more
Some of the most significant changes to the 2021 iPhones are in the camera(s), and the company today announced several new features that will produce better still photographs and videos on the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

The first is a new “cinematic mode” for video that mimics the rack focus effect seen in movies. The iPhone 13 smoothly switches between front and back focus based on what’s happening in the frame. When a subject looks away from the phone, the system switches to a different focus. You can also manually change or lock the focus on your preferred subject by tapping. The iPhone 13 Mini also has a cinematic mode.
On all iPhone 13 models, a depth map is built into the cinematic mode video file, giving you the option of changing the focus point after the fact. And for the iPhone 13 Pro, Apple is introducing a macrophotography feature that can focus on subjects as close as two centimeters away from the lens.
“iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max make up our most pro iPhone lineup ever with the biggest advancement for our camera system, the best battery life ever in an iPhone, and the fastest performance of any smartphone, setting a new standard for iPhone and enabling incredible experiences never before possible.”
“The new pro camera system offers even more pro photography capabilities like improved telephoto zoom, macro photography, Photographic Styles, Cinematic mode, as well as ProRes and Dolby Vision video. The Super Retina XDR display with ProMotion is our best display ever; it intelligently responds to the content on your screen, offers fantastic graphics performance, and is perfect for any viewing experience.”Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
The 13 Pro also gets new “photographic styles,” which apply different adjustments across scenes and subject types, allowing you to save your favorite visual effects and use them in future shots. Apple will add ProRes video support to the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max later this year, giving video creators more flexibility in post-production.
