The Iphone 13 is out, but is it special?

Yoni Heisler

Apple has been one of the frontrunners in technology and innovation for the past several years, creating revolutionary products such as the Mac, the iPad, iPods, Airpods, Apple Watches, and the iPhone. Apple has been incredibly successful since its launch and has earned a spot at first on the Fortune 500 company list. With a track record like this, it can be expected that Apple won’t disappoint with its new products. This expectation was exceeded in 2021 with the introduction of the iPhone 13.

Some new features include brand new 5G connectivity, an exponentially increased battery life, improved speakers, 1TB storage, and all new gyroscopic technology that allows for much more accurate GPS location. Despite all of these new features, many people are disappointed with the phone. The most technologically advanced iPhone ever has plenty of impressive features including a brand new camera with Pro 12mp technology, a 40% battery increase, and the most accurate GPS location in history. But are the features enough to provide distance between the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 13?

A teacher at Lanier, Mrs. Leeman believes, “It’s just like every other phone…there are no differences.” This statement represents the opinions of many people. The design is very similar to previous models, and the camera is reminiscent of the iPhone X, 11, and 12. Lanier students have indicated that they wish to see a new design, consistent iOS updates, a better camera, and the general consensus is that people are disappointed with this iPhone and hope that Apple can find more creativity when designing models in the future. Lanier students have indicated that they wish to see a new design, consistent iOS updates, and brand new features.
