Apple Debuts Its iPhone 13 With The Fastest Smartphone CPU On The Planet

Category: Tech

Apple has just held its September 2021 Keynote event, and alongside the unveiling of the tech giant’s most capable Pro-spec iPhone ever — and new iPad and Apple Watch models — the company has also revealed a similarly impressive iPhone 13 standard model that’s giving users plenty of reasons to upgrade from the 12th generation.

Available in 128, 256, and 512GB variants, the standard Apple iPhone 13 is being offered in regular 6.1″ and 5.4″ mini specs, both of which lie under a new ceramic front shield — the strongest smartphone glass ever — and boast the same geometry (albeit in different dimensions) and the same Super Retina XDR OLED displays — the latter of which is now more efficient and nearly 30% brighter. Inside, the phones pack Apple’s new A15 Bionic chip, advanced machine learning capabilities, faster graphical capabilities, and a 6-core CPU that is reportedly the fastest smartphone CPU on the market by around 50%. The use of a collective 15 billion transistors also enables the phones to perform a mind-blowing 15.8 trillion operations per second. The base model iPhone 13s were also designed in collaboration with a team of camera and software engineers, resulting in the smartphone’s new Trudepth camera and its lightning-fast processing power. Other highlights on these IP68-rated, 5G-capable devices include larger batteries, more secure facial recognition capabilities, and custom antennas that are crafted from up-cycled plastic water bottles. Available beginning September 24 in six different finishes, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini start at $699 and $799, respectively.
