iPhone pro

The new generation of iPhones is now available, with Apple having presented four new models: the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, but above all the two iPhone Pro models that will be of particular interest to business travellers. With reason, because the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone Pro Max embody the best of the technology of the house with the small apple and are really differentiated by their autonomy, their fluidity and their functionalities in terms of photo and video. On the other hand, there are no notable changes in terms of design, as the previous iPhone 12 range, with its sharp angles and flat side edges, convinced Apple afficionados last year.

The resistance is thus with the appointment with a glass in “ceramic shield” protecting the screen, the whole matched with a certification IP68 of waterproofness to the dust and the water projections. We will note however a notch dedicated to the front camera for selfies and facial recognition much more discreet than the previous generation. It remains visible, while the competition in terms of premium smartphones has chosen to integrate invisibly the sensor under the screen, like the Galaxy Z Fold 3 of Samsung. On the other hand, we’ll note a more protruding sensor location on the back.

The Oled HDR screens of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone Pro Max are distinguished respectively with a 6.1-inch slab and a 6.7-inch slab. The result is a brighter screen than the previous generation, but also and above all, adaptive Pro Motion. This means that the display of images refreshes in real time according to the use, whether it is a classic navigation or a video game. This rate of refreshment evolving until 120 Hz, of which the competing smartphones were already equipped but posed problem to Apple by the question of autonomy, is henceforth solved successfully, as one will see it.

The main innovation is the equipment of the new range with the integration, under the hood, of the new house chip A15, not to mention the operating system IOS 15. The whole thing is packed with artificial intelligence for optimized recognition and fluidity of use. The resulting power maximizes 5G connections, but also and especially the new image features offered by the iPhone 13 Pro. New to Apple, both smartphones have a night mode that works on the sensitivity of taking pictures.

The camera block at the back includes three 12MP camera modules that offer notable developments: an ultra-wide angle with a significantly enlarged f/1.8 aperture with a new macro mode to work out shots in impressive detail; a wide-angle, 26mm equivalent, all with stabilization; and especially a telephoto lens reserved for the iPhone 13 Pro, and whose zoom is now X6. Enough to become a real paparazzi!

The photo and video modes are distinguished by an automatic macro mode, but a future update will leave photographers free to choose. Also noteworthy is the ability to rely on “photographic styles” isolating each element of the shot in order to finely work the light and colorimetry with artificial intelligence and give even more intensity to each shot.

The iPhone 13 Pro makes their cinema

Another new feature is the cinematic mode, whose very title underlines the positioning of the new iPhone Pro. It’s no coincidence that Apple brought in Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow for the presentation to highlight the cinematic possibilities of the two Apple Pros and target video professionals. This will highlight the two cinematic and ProRes modes, the latter with its new codec coming in a future update by the end of the year.

The cinematic mode simulates an artificial point of view by varying the zone of sharpness as you wish. It’s a great way to have fun with depth of field transitions, for example by starting with a macro film and then widening the field, all filmed in Full HD (1080p) and in Dolby Vision.

An Apple ProRes mode, with a new codec coming in a future update, allows you to shoot directly in ProRes 4K with increased information compared to a regular video file. Video professionals will certainly be delighted by this technical evolution, but the difficulty of storage will remain, as iPhones do not have a memory card. On the other hand, a first for Apple, the extension of storage capacities that can go up to one terabyte for the two iPhone Pro, depending on the options chosen.

Above all, Apple has undertaken an in-depth work on the battery side supported by components of the new chip, more energy efficient without counting the principle of adaptive refresh rate from 10Hz to 120Hz. In the end, the two behemoths offer a full day’s autonomy, far greater than the iPhone Pro 12 range, with an extra hour of daily autonomy for the iPhone 13 Pro and two and a half hours per day for the iPhone 13 Pro Max compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The use in video, strong point of the new range Pro, also offers an autonomy of some 17 hours in streaming according to the results of the tests of the specialized sites like O1Net or The Verge.

Apple has thus bet on a notable improvement of the defects detected on its previous generations, whether in terms of autonomy and fluidity, not to mention the ultimate, dear to the house, that is to say the photo and video capabilities with a clear improvement in night mode shooting. There remains the problem of connectivity recurrent at Apple, without memory card slot or USB C compatibility, soon required by
