iPhone 13 Pro Costs Around $20 More to Build Compared to the iPhone 12 Pro, Despite Being the Same Price… – Mac Rumors

Published

on

The iPhone 13 Pro costs Apple around $20 more to build compared to last year’s iPhone 12 Pro, but despite the lower margin of revenue for the company, the ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ still starts at the same $999 price point as last year’s entry-level Pro iPhone.

TechInsights did a costs analysis breakdown of the new ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌, finding that due to higher component costs related to the improved camera, A15 Bionic chip, ProMotion displays, and presumably the large battery, the newest ‌iPhone‌ costs $570 to build, while the ‌iPhone 12‌ Pro cost merely $548. Compared to the Samsung Galaxy S21+, both iPhones are however significantly more expensive to build.

The increase in build costs from the ‌iPhone 12‌ Pro to the ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ is notable but not as pronounced as last year’s increase from the iPhone 11. The ‌iPhone 12‌ introduced 5G support, a new 5nm chip, and the return of flat edges. Those changes resulted in the iPhone 12 being 21% more expensive for Apple to build than the ‌iPhone 11‌.
In the run-up to the launch of the iPhone 13 and ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ last month, a report suggested that due to increased costs for chip production, Apple would increase the price of the iPhone 13 as a means of compensating. That did not occur, and Apple instead kept the same price points for the ‌iPhone 13‌, on top of introducing more aggressive carrier subsidies. Another report suggested that Apple was looking at new ways to assemble the cameras in an ‌iPhone‌ to save costs.

These Amazing Night Sky Photos Were Taken on an iPhone 13 Pro Max – Mac Rumors

Published

on

The iPhone 13 Pro Max received a number of major camera improvements this year, such as larger sensors and apertures, as well as software features like Photographic Styles. With the first iPhone 13 models being in users’ hands for over two weeks now, the real-world camera capabilities of Apple’s flagship smartphones have started to emerge.
night photo road
The ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ Max’s impressive astrophotography abilities have been showcased by the user “ToddH” on the MacRumors forums. ToddH used the standard 12MP Wide lens to take the photos, noting that the Ultra Wide lens did not produce such good results.
So I drove to a dark site last night and set up my iPhone and Skywatcher Star adventurer to see if tracking the night sky for 30″ during a night mode capture would look better. It does… The stars are pinpoint as compared to a tripod only mounted iPhone. You don’t need to track the sky, I did to see the difference. The images are better since the iPhone takes three 10″ exposures and combines them therefore the stars are slightly elongated without tracking.
The images were shot using Apple’s ProRAW format and then edited using the mobile version of Lightroom on the iPhone itself.

It was rumored prior to the announcement of the ‌iPhone 13‌ lineup that the new devices could offer specific astrophotography features, but when the devices were unveiled no such features were mentioned. Despite this, early adopters of the ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ appear to be reporting good very results when shooting the night sky.
Other users were sharing their own photos in the discussion thread.
