The Super Retina XDR displays on both models support variable refresh rates of between 10Hz and 120Hz, and the screen size are same as its predecessors at 6.1 and 6.7 inches.
According to Apple, the biggest improvement in the phone is its pro camera system with new Ultra Wide, Wide, and Telephoto cameras. The wide camera offers better low-light photography, while the ultrawide sees improvements due to its wider aperture. The phones’ telephoto camera can now zoom up to 3x, enabling 6x optical zoom across the three cameras. All three cameras now have night mode, and there’s a new macro mode for photographing subjects at just 2cm.
The iPhone 13 Pro will be able to film in up to 4K / 30fps in ProRes. The cinematic focus feature will be available on iPhone 13, 13 Pro and Pro Max.
