The new iPhone and iPad with 5G. Highlights from Apple's presentation
Apple Corporation held a presentation, which traditionally presented new products.
iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini.

The models are generally similar to the previous generation devices, but are thicker and presented in new colors.

It allows you to shoot video with dynamic focus. The smartphones are powered by Apple’s 5nm A15 chip, which will improve smartphone performance and battery life. The charge will last 1.5 hours longer than on previous versions. The 5G module has been updated: it supports more frequencies in different countries and new standards (Sub-6GhZ and Microwave).
