Apple video focuses on the differences between iPhone 13 models

Deciding to buy the new iPhone is one thing, but choosing the particular model to buy is another challenge altogether.

All of the different sizes, colors, storage options, features, and prices may have left your mind in a muddle as you try to work out which of the many permutations is best for you.

For example, do you really need the top-end features that come with the iPhone 13 Pro Max, or would you be better off saving a few bucks and going with the more reasonably priced iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Mini?

Digital Trends has already published a bunch of informative articles to help you make your choice, and now Apple itself has gotten involved, releasing an intricately scripted and entertainingly shot video (below) that offers its own take on the multitude of differences between the new iPhone 13 models.

The lively presentation highlights the available colors and sizes before focusing on features such as Cinematic mode, enhanced photography capabilities, durability, and improved battery and display.

While Apple’s video avoids going into great detail about the differences, it’s offers some useful pointers if you’re looking to upgrade or coming to the iPhone for the first time.

Apple's iPhone 13.

As with last year’s iPhone 12, serious photographers and videographers may end up opting for one of the pricier Pro models if they have the extra funds, though we should make clear that the non-Pro models also offer outstanding camera systems.

The best-priced iPhone 13 is the 5.4-inch Mini, which starts at $699, while the most expensive is the 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max, which starts at $1,099 and tops out at $1,599, based on storage amount.

If you’re in the market for a new iPhone, this Digital Trends article also offers some useful suggestions.

Alternatively, there are some great deals to be had with the iPhone 12, a handset that came out 11 months ago but still packs a hefty punch.

Apple’s new iPhone 15 handsets have been largely well received since their release on Friday, though one troubling issue has emerged with the pricier Pro versions of the device.

As reported by Digital Trends on Monday, some owners of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max have taken to online forums to express concerns that their new iPhone is heating up way beyond what seems normal, and certainly to a greater extent than their previous iPhone when performing the same or similar tasks.

After 3 days, I love these 4 things about the iPhone 15

Apple’s new iPhone 15 has hit the streets, and boy, it’s a pretty great upgrade from its predecessor. You now have the Dynamic Island, USB-C, an A16 Bionic processor, and a mighty 48MP main camera that can do up to 2x optical zoom. To top it off, the standard iPhone 15 models have a new matte finish back glass with color infused throughout the material.

I’ve only had the iPhone 15 for a few days now and will be working on the full review for Digital Trends in the coming days. But after just spending a couple of days with it, I’m already thoroughly impressed with the iPhone 15, even though I typically go for the Pro models myself.
The new matte back is absolutely lovely

The Apple iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 series have been launched with much fanfare, but it seems that not all users are completely satisfied with the new handsets. Despite the many improvements and new features that come with these phones, users of both the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 have taken to social media to complain about overheating issues.

While this may not be a cause for immediate alarm, it is certainly something that Apple and its team of engineers will need to monitor closely, assuming there is a system-wide problem, which there might not be. The last thing anyone wants is for the new phones to become a safety hazard or for users to suffer damage to their devices.
