It’s hard to keep up with the latest Apple products. With its second event of the year just a few days away, Apple is releasing more products than ever. But still, the most highly-anticipated part of every Apple event is the new iPhone. Since 2007, a new iPhone has steadily released new models. And each generation of iPhones offers something bigger, smaller, more powerful, faster, lighter, better than before. But where are we on the iPhone timeline? Here’s a hint: if the iPhone were a human, it would now be a teenager.
This past September, Apple revealed the iPhone 13. It’s the 13th generation in the iPhone family, although Apple has produced 33 iPhones overall; some iterations are from the same series or have branched off non-linearly from the original.
The iPhone 13, in all its glory.
The iPhone 13 has come a long way from generation one. To put things in perspective, the very first iPhone had a measly 4 GB of storage, a 3.5-inch screen, a single-core 412 MHz professor, no front camera, and no apps.
By comparison, the iPhone 13 comes with a minimum of 128 GB, a 6.1-inch screen, and a six-core processor that can perform 15.8 trillion operations per second. Display-wise, it has Super Retina XDR with ProMotion, which means it makes for smooth scrolling.
The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini have a 12MP dual camera system: a wide and ultra wide lens that shoot in a range of modes, larger aperture, and a bigger sensor. The iPhone Pro and Pro Max are also equipped with a third telephoto lens and something called Cinematic Mode that will make your videos look Oscar-worthy. All in all, its camera features will impress any photographer.
For 13 generations, iPhones have kept cult of Apple happy. Here’s to another 13 and beyond.
Makes you feel nostalgic, doesn’t it?
