Apple representatives said that they seek “to create an experience like any other, with legendary ease of use, beautiful, and durable designs, water-resistance, and great battery life.”
Apple representatives, who spoke on a colorful, splashy, and fast-paced video said that ‘people love iPhones,” which have the “world’s most advanced camera system and privacy built-in.
“We keep making iPhone better and more powerful, capable, and even more fun to use.”
“Under the hood,” Apple representatives said, “iPhone 13 has been completely new architected to make room for new technology and a bigger battery."
Also, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini both feature a more advanced super-retina CR display, which is 28% brighter, 800 nits, and “brilliant for viewing, even when outside,” said Apple representatives, who added that brightness for photos and videos is also higher in the new phones, which boast 1200 nits.

In addition, Apple staffers touted their new generation of phones as being “incredibly durable with our exclusive ceramic shield front: tougher than any smartphone glass, and has industry-leading IP-68 water-resistance.”
The phone's aluminum frame, which is made of recycled materials, is “aerospace grade” and comes in five new colors: pink, blue, midnight, starlight, and red.
The phones’ “advanced dual” camera system not only has a new look, with the lenses arranged diagonally, but the camera system has been reengineered to provide “more display area.”
Everything inside the phone, said Apple employees, including face ID, which they call “the most secure facial identification of any smart phone: fits into a space that is 20% smaller.”
