Apple presents the new iPhone generation

What innovations await us in the iPhone 13 models?

There are small adjustments here and there to give the appearance of development. As in the previous year, Apple unveiled the four new iPhone 13 models at an event. Surprisingly, the tech giant unceremoniously announced the discontinuation of the Mini series. A look at the sales figures, however, reveals the probable reason for this: the Mini models did not stand out in the past due to a strong sales participation. Especially because the regular iPhone versions have proven to be bestsellers so far and the Pro models also enjoy great popularity, this is an understandable decision. Nevertheless, we have compiled the most important features and innovations of the new iPhone generation for you.
