It is that time of the year when Apple announces its latest smartphones and smartwatches. These phones are not only the most powerful but also are the ones that set the benchmarks for the industry.
Like the previous generation, this years’ iPhone 13 series also comes with 4 new smartphones – iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max. All four devices come with a new A15 Bionic processor and are 5G capable as well, just like last year. Most importantly the new iPhones are expected to offer a slightly better battery life – which is important because the Pro variants are finally getting a 120 Hz refresh rate. Yes, finally!
Though there were rumours that Apple may not update the Mini avatar, that’s not the case and Apple wants to continue with this smaller version. The new iPhones still have a notch albeit slightly smaller offering more screen real-estate but it is still there.
Apart from the phones, Apple has also refreshed its iPad lineup as well as introduced a new Apple Watch 7. The good thing here is that the new iPhones will be available in India soon and the pre-orders start September 17. Read further for the iPhone 13 series Indian price, availability, and features.
