#1: Much better battery life
There will be gains all across the board when it comes to batteries. Here’s the rundown:
- iPhone 13 Pro Max – 4,352mAh vs iPhone 12 Pro Max’s 3,687mAh
- iPhone 13/13 Pro – 3,095mAh vs iPhone 12/12 Pro’s 2,815mAh
- iPhone 13 mini – 2,406mAh vs iPhone 12 mini’s 2,227mAh
#2: OLED display with adaptive refresh rate
#3: Performance overwhelming with the Apple A15 Bionic
The Apple A15 Bionic chipset will be based on a 5nm manufacturing technology and is already reportedly in production at TSMC’s foundries. This will hopefully allow it to deal with the global semiconductor shortage and be ready for a September release of its iPhone lineup. If previous years are indicative in any way, we should see massive performance improvements in comparison with the previous generation. In particular, the Apple A14 Bionic was a pretty solid improvement over the A13 Bionic, but most of that was because of the 5nm manufacturing process in contrast with the 7nm of the older device. That’s why we don’t expect such massive gains, but we would probably see great bumps anyway.
