All right, welcome to the new iPhone 13 and 13 pro unboxing.

Or wait, hold that thought.

We’ve got an iPhone 13 and the 13 mini

and 13 Pro and the 13 Pro Max.

The New iPhone 13 released- the first impression

I’m sure the stuff inside
of the box is very similar,

but let’s get into it.

Unboxing the new Iphone 13 series

So we’re gonna unbox every
phone in the new lineup

and I’m gonna start with
the standard iPhone 13

The New iPhone 13 released- the first impression

in this new blue color

that I think is my
favorite of the new phones.

And it’s this thin box
again, as you can see,

because there’s no power
brick included in the box.

But as you may have noticed,

The New iPhone 13 released- the first impression

there’s also no plastic
shrink wrap this year.

And so I guess it’s time

to give Apple a little bit of credit

for their use of recycled materials

to offset their environmental impact.

So recycled box cardboard,
recycled aluminum,

recycled phone design.

The New iPhone 13 released- the first impression

But here we can see the
phone in all its glory.

And I can just fire it up real quick

before looking at the accessories,

but the rest of the stuff in the box

is pretty much the same.

You get a Lightning to USB-C cable

and you get some
paperwork, a SIM card tool,

and an Apple sticker that is not colored,

just a white Apple sticker.

But yeah, that’s the iPhone 13

in the hand for the first time.

Let’s grab the 13 mini next.

So this is a new darker color.

It’s called Midnight.

iphone 13 mini unboxing

It’s not quite black

but it is a very, very, very dark blue.

But I think the camera bump

might also be close to black

on this Midnight iPhone.

The New iPhone 13 released- the first impression

Then the Pro iPhones 13 here.

The Pro iPhones come in black boxes again.

So this is the Gold 13 Pro.

A lot of the same stuff.

Again, white Apple sticker,
normal accessories.

And then the Sierra Blue 13 Pro Max.

Big phone.

Big camera bump, which
I’ll get to in a second.

And just had to make sure,

but yes, they do all
come with white Apple stickers.

But that is the unboxing

and that is your iPhone 13 lineup.

So by the time you’re reading this,

I have been testing these new iPhones

for the better part of five days now,

which, not quite enough
time for a full review.

but enough for
some solid first impressions.

First Impression of iPhone 13 series

So that’s what I’m gonna give you today.

Also, make sure to subscribe to our newsletters
to be among the first

to see the full reviews when they drop

and also let me know which one
you wanna see reviewed first.

But yeah, from the outside,

it looks almost identical
to last year’s phone,

The New iPhone 13 released- the first impression

and in the hand, it feels
almost the same too.

Although, it is a quarter
of a millimeter thicker,

which I don’t notice at all,

but then also about 20 grams heavier,

which I do notice,

iphone 13 feels a little havier than iphone 12

not by much,

but I did notice because
I’m so calibrated to the 12.

Now, most of this extra left

is from a slightly
larger battery capacity.

And the more I use these phones,

this is starting to be interesting,

the more I’m starting to think

that this may be the most
underrated new change

on these iPhones.

I have been very impressed
with the battery here,

especially on the larger phones.

So I had a day with the 13 Pro

where I had nearly five
hours of screen on time

screen on time

with half battery left,

which is crazy good.

And that’s not even the Pro Max.

So we’ll see if this continues to hold up,

but that’s something
to keep an eye on this year

that I wasn’t expecting as much.

You know, it’s a pretty minor update,

but in the grand scheme of things,

even if Apple didn’t
add crazy fast charging

or ultra-fast wireless charging,

the fact that they did make the phone

a little thicker and a little heavier

for a little bit of a bigger battery,

all right, yeah, thumbs up.

But the only other
two updates to evaluate

are the cameras and the screen.

So for these cameras,

I already have a bunch
of sample photos here

and I encourage you to follow
me on Twitter or Instagram

because I’m gonna keep posting
new sample photos and videos

as I keep testing these.

But overall, my impression so far

camera samples

is still a great set of cameras,

especially in broad daylight, of course.

And the bigger improvements

will be seen in more edge cases,

like low light, fast
moving subjects, etc.

Gonna shoot some
more of that type of stuff.

But the star of the show really

are all the sensors are bigger and better

and there are still 12 megapixels each

but that ultra-wide in
particular looks much better

ultra wide samples in 13 pro

with the sharpness across the whole frame.

And I’m pumped that the new
telephoto on the Pro is 3x,

slightly better than the 2.5x on the Pro Max last year,

and, again, a larger sensor.

But that’s why all these
cameras are so massive

on the back of the phones too.

It’s of course an aesthetic change

between this year’s phone and last year.

The cameras are also now
diagonal on the 13 and 13 mini,

not just to look different,
but to fit that new hardware.

And it’s just an overall
bigger camera bump

that’s super-duper thick.

I do already have a couple of quirks,

things that I’ve noticed
about these cameras, though.

ProRes.

So these Pro cameras,
the 13 Pro, 13 Pro Max,

were supposed to have a ProRes video.

The super-high-quality codec

that’s used all the
time in the video world.

It’s not here.

It’s not here yet, anyway.

This is a coming soon feature

that will be pushed sometime

with a software update.

Again, I can’t evaluate it.

It’s supposed to be here but it’s not

and Apple’s usually pretty good

about eventually delivering
things they promise,

especially in software.

But it’s not here yet.

But then number two,

the new macro capability on the iPhone Pro’s ultra wides.

So when you get close enough to an object,

within about 14 centimeters or something,

the cameras automatically
switch to the ultra-wide

and that’s because it has the
super close-up capability.

So you can keep going in

and get as close as two
centimeters from something

and it’ll still be in focus,

camera samples of  13

which is great.

It’s better than some dinky
two-megapixel macro camera.

It’s super high quality.

It’s taking a crop from a
higher quality sensor instead.

It’s been fun to play with.

macro shots on apple new phone

But, but this all happens automatically

with no manual override at all.

Not a huge deal to some people,

but, like, you can see the switch

when it happens in the viewfinder,

but there is no indication

that it has switched cameras at all.

So you walk in closer to something,

it switches to the crop of the ultra-wide,

but it still says 1x on the right side

like it’s still coming from
the main camera when it isn’t.

But now all the natural bokeh

from the primary camera’s
focal length is gone

and it doesn’t let me switch back.

That’s the thing.

I can hit the 1x all I
want, nothing happens.

And that’s the difference
between getting this

and moving one inch
closer, auto-switching,

and getting this.

It just looks worse.

Now, maybe they do that automatically

to prevent some of the fringing

that can come up with close-up subjects

from these larger primary sensors.

But on a Pro phone,

I would like at least to be
able to hit the 1x button

and switch back to the primary sensor.

Just give me the button for the control.

Small complaint, though.

But then, also,

there is the new Cinematic mode,

which is on all of the phones,

and it is such a new,

it is a software feature,

but it is so processor-intensive

that it’s only going to
be on iPhone 13 and later.

It’s not coming to older iPhones.

But this was described on stage

as focus rocking and
AI-based face tracking

for shooting more cinematic videos.

I think this is going to look like,

to regular people,

like video Portrait mode.

So first of all, in the camera modes,

it’s got its own
dedicated swipe over panel.

So there are Portrait photos,
then regular photos,

next is regular videos,

after that Cinematic mode,

which immediately applies the
the fake extra depth of field.

Now, there are way more manual controls,

so I’m thinking maybe I’ll try

to shoot a whole video
or something with this

to see if it’s worth your time

for people trying to make
videos on the iPhone.

But for now, for normal
people getting this phone,

yeah, that background blur is
gonna get the most attention.

It’s like video Portrait mode.

So I’ve got a lot of camera testing to do.

But you know what didn’t take me very long to evaluate is the new screens.

So they’re all the same size as last year

but they are brighter.

They’ve got a slightly,
a 20% smaller notch

better screen  in apple 13 series

thanks to the movement
of that earpiece up top

and the Pro versions now
have 120-hertz ProMotion.

So the smaller notch,
it’s all right, I guess.

To my eye, honestly, it
makes almost no difference

because you don’t get
much screen real estate back.

Apple didn’t even the
courtesy to add an option

to see the battery percentage
up there in the status bar

or do anything with the
extra screen real estate.

The 120-hertz ProMotion,
though, it’s legit.

It’s amazing.

It’s very nice looking.

And it’s about damn time.

And I’m gonna probably
say the same thing again

when it finally comes to the
Pixel 6, also, this year.

But yeah, it’s about time.

Now, to be fair, Apple’s
had, in my description,

some of the smoothest feeling
60-hertz phones of the past.

But the second I unlocked the 13 Pro

for the first time out of the box

and I could see that high refresh rate,

But it looks great.

Super smooth animations

and pretty much every single app

and every single animation,

even pre-launch of the phone,

is moving at 120 hertz right off the bat.

Even the classics, like
Instagram and TikTok,

that still need to get updated

to look correct on this
barely released phone

are 120 hertz.

But yeah, the high refresh rate for the win.

It won’t translate here,
of course, on camera

in this 30fps video.

But yeah, you’ll have to trust my words.

It’s really good.

Even now better than the iPad Pro

because it’s OLED now.

It’s 120 hertz, HDR, OLED.

It’s beautiful.

Aside from that, here’s some
A15 Bionic Geekbench scores

geekbench score of 13

just to sort of round out
the initial impressions.

It’s a very fast chip.

It is a little bit of
a bump over last year.

There you go.

But that sort of rounds
up my initial thoughts

on the iPhone 13s.

A lot of friends are
asking, “Should I update?

Is it worth it,

even though it’s a small
update over the 12?”

Maybe they have an older phone.

Should they get this phone?

First of all, friends,
wait for the full review.

It’s coming very soon.

That’ll have all the details.

But yeah, it is such
a minor set of changes

that I think if you were thinking

about getting the 13 specifically

then you might consider
a freshly discounted 12

because the phone is so similar

and it just dropped now
that the 13 came out.

With the mini, the battery life
on the smaller one was bad,

so maybe you’ll get the 13 mini instead

with better battery life.

And with the Pros, of course,

there’s 120 hertz to consider.

But overall, for people with older phones,

like iPhone Xs, iPhone 8s,

any older phone,

this represents a solid,
now a good buy again.

And hey, if you do get the 13,

you might as well protect your investment.

I mean, that one terabyte
iPhone 13 Pro Max

costs 1,600 bucks.

Wouldn’t want that to crack
on the first week, would you?

what stuff do you wanna
see covered in detail

in the full review?

And also, which one should I review first?

I have a feeling it’ll
probably be the 13 standards,

but let me know anyway.

We’ll check those out.

Either way, that’s been it.
