After the launch of new Apple products, especially iPhones, we usually want to run to see the specifications and how they compare to previous generations. It is true that not all improvements can be measured in specifications and in numbers, but they give us a good vision of the evolution of the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 Pro.

Easy comparisons, even if they don’t tell the whole story

As we have already said, the specifications do not tell us the whole story, but they do offer us a basis for very direct comparisons. Improvements like those of the battery or specifications of the cameras, for example, are clearly seen. Let’s review the iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13, iPhone 12, and iPhone 11, in the next table.
