Apple has finally announced the new iPhone 13 series of smartphones and we finally know what the new lineup is all about. The smartphones were announced at the “California Streaming” event where four models of the iPhone 13 were announced.
Apple announced four iPhone 13 models in total that range from 5.4-inches to 6.7-inches in screen size. The smallest model is the second phone in the “mini” series called iPhone 13 mini while others follow the usual iPhone nomenclature like the 12. All four models are very similar to the iPhone 12 series in design, using a squared-off design inspired by the iPhone 4. All four models use OLED displays like the iPhone 12 series where the “Pro” models have a 120Hz refresh rate display. However, the Face ID module has been reworked and reduced in size for a larger screen real estate, by 20%.
