Apple iPhone 13: Questions Answered 

1. Does the iPhone 13 come with a Lightning port? 
Apple is still holding on to the lightning port with their latest model and just like last year, all the new iPhone 13 models are devoid of a 3.5mm headphone jack. wireless charging with a MagSafe or Qi-based wireless charger is possible. 
The European Commission (EU) wants to force all electronic manufacturers to use USB-C charging, so the chances of a complete portless iPhone are high in their next rendition. 

2. What is the major difference in design between the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13? 
The screen notch has been reduced by 20% allowing more space for viewing your videos. All the sensors and face ids are still available but have been optimized in size. The camera bumps have been enlarged which renders your iPhone 12 phone cover unusable, not that you ever planned to do so. 
The weight however has slightly increased due to the inclusions of a larger battery and enhanced camera system. 
Apart from this, the screen size and flat edges still resemble the iPhone 12.

3. Has the battery life significantly improved from iPhone 12? 
As per the claims from Apple, the iPhone 13 pro and the iPhone 13 mini would each last up to 1.5 hours longer than the iPhone 12 counterparts. Moreover, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro Max should each get a longer battery life of up to 2.5 hours than their iPhone 12 models. In mobile use time, that is a great improvement and is one of the major reasons to upgrade. 

4. What is the best new feature in iPhone 13? 
Just when you think that they have got the best camera quality possible, they go ahead and amaze us with a new feature. The major new feature would be the inclusion of macro photography (exclusive to the iPhone 13 Pros) and Cinematic mode (on all iPhone 13 models). With macro photography, the close-up photos you take are really exceptionally detailed and in focus. 

5. What is special about the Cinematic mode? 
Cinematic mode is a new video mode for all four iPhone 13 models which is kind of like the portrait mode, but for video. It enables you to shoot explicit videos with a subject in focus and the background blurred, with the ability to change which subject is in focus during the video, either automatically or at the tap on a subject. The best part is that You can edit which subject is in focus even after the video is shot. However, this feature only works in 1080p at 30fps, meaning it's not really a "Pro" feature. 

6. Can you notice a difference in the 13 Pro's high refresh rate (120Hz) display? 
If you juxtapose the two phones, you can notice a difference in the refresh rate, but nothing that dramatic. 
Apple gave the two iPhone 13 Pro models the ProMotion, which is a display with a 120Hz display that allows the screen to refresh twice as fast as the 60Hz display of the two regular iPhone 13 models. This typically results in faster and smoother scrolling and swiping. 

7. Is MagSafe any different on the iPhone 13 from the iPhone 12? 
Apple has not changed the MagSafe in any way from the iPhone 12 series to the iPhone 13 series and will continue to work with the exact same accessories and same max charging speeds.

8. Is it worth upgrading if I have an iPhone 12? 
It depends on the eye of the beholder. If you have had issues with the iPhone 12's battery life or you are somebody who needs to be on the cutting edge of the latest smartphone photography, then it makes sense to make the jump to an iPhone 13. However, Apple is so ahead of the curve when it comes to mobile photography and chip processors that the iPhone 12 can still hold its ground against the new release. 

Besides, if the rumours are true, then the iPhone 14 is supposed to get the major redesign and will also shield you from the trolls of paying more for the same features.
