Apple is continuing to use the “Ceramic Shield” material that delivers better drop protection for the Apple iPhone 13 128gb and the other 13 models. The Ceramic Shield display cover is made by infusing nano-ceramic crystals into glass. The ceramic crystals were manipulated to optimize for clarity while maintaining toughness, with the display created in partnership with Corning.
According to Apple, Ceramic Shield is tougher than any smartphone glass, with a dual-ion exchange process ensuring protection against scratches and everyday wear and tear.
A15 Bionic Chip
All of the iPhone 13 models use Apple’s new A15 chip, which offers performance and efficiency improvements over the A14 chip used in the iPhone 12. There are two performance cores and four efficiency cores, and the A15 chip in the iPhone 13 models is only surpassed by the version in the iPhone 13 Pro models.
The A15 chip in the iPhone 13 and 13 mini features a 4-core GPU, which is one less core than is available in the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max. For this reason, the iPhone 13 Pro and the Pro Max offer the fastest GPU performance, but the standard iPhone 13 models aren’t too far behind.
The iPhone 13 Pro models offer 50 percent faster graphics performance compared to the iPhone 12 Pro models, while the iPhone 13 models offer 15 percent faster graphics performance.
TrueDepth Camera and Face ID
For biometric authentication purposes, the iPhone 13 models use Face ID, the facial recognition system that was first introduced in 2017. Face ID components are housed in the TrueDepth camera system in the display notch, which is smaller this year.
Face ID is used across iOS tasks for unlocking the iPhone, allowing access to third-party passcode-protected apps, confirming app purchases, and authenticating Apple Pay payments.
Face ID works through a set of sensors and cameras. A Dot Projector projects more than 30,000 invisible infrared dots onto the surface of the skin to create a 3D facial scan that maps the curves and planes of each face, with the scan read by an infrared camera.
The facial depth map is relayed to the A15 chip where it is transformed into a mathematical model that the iPhone uses to authenticate identity. Face ID works in low light and in the dark, and with hats, beards, glasses, sunglasses, scarves, and other accessories that partially obscure the face.
For face masks, which do not work with Face ID, there’s an “Unlock with Apple Watch” feature for convenience. Unlock with Apple Watch allows iPhone users to take advantage of an unlocked and authenticated Apple Watch as a secondary authentication measure to unlock their devices when wearing a mask. It can’t be used to authenticate Apple Pay or App Store purchases, and it can’t unlock apps that require a Face ID scan. In these situations, a mask needs to be removed or a passcode needs to be used instead.
What is eSIM?
eSIM technology allows you to add a cellular plan to your Apple iPhone 13 128gb, without using a physical SIM card. Carrier-connected iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro models will arrive ready to activate with eSIM. You will need a Wi-Fi connection for setup.
If you choose to connect to a carrier after you buy your iPhone, you will need to contact your carrier to activate with an eSIM.*
* Use of eSIM requires a wireless service plan (which may include restrictions on switching service providers and roaming, even after contract expiration). Not all carriers support eSIM. Use of eSIM in iPhone may be disabled when purchased from some carriers. See your carrier for details.
