Nigerians react as Apple set to launch iPhone 13 few months after iPhone 12



Apple is set to roll out the all new iPhone 13, a development that has set the social media space alight.

The company has highlighted some upgrades it is making to the iPhone 13.

In a new video, hugely popular YouTuber Filip Koroy has teamed up with influential leaker; Max Weinbach to reveal the multiple upgrades to the iPhone 13, Forbes reports. Weinbach tells Koroy that Apple will refine the matte back of the iPhone 13 Pro models; adding a “more grippy textured back that will be slightly more comfortable [to hold]”. He also understands that it will be akin to the finish on Google’s Pixel series.

That said, he warns that the chassis design “will not be changing so overall the same look at the iPhone 12 lineup.”

On the display, Weinbach confirms perhaps the most wanted upgrade to the range is coming to iPhone 13 Pro models. That is the 120Hz ProMotion displays using the same (impressive) LPTO OLED technology; which has proven popular with Samsung’s new Galaxy S21 lineup.

Also, there are three other major upgrades.

Koroy reports that Apple will introduce an automatic astrophotography mode when pointing iPhone 13 models at the sky; a popular feature in rival phones, as well as a massive upgrade to the ultra-wide camera lens; with Apple giving it “the royal treatment across the entire lineup” with a new sensor and lens.

Further, he reveals that perhaps the most exciting upgrade, however, comes with the news that “portrait video is finally happening. However, Apple has had this feature in the pipeline for quite some time. Now with the Apple A15, it will finally be possible. You will be able to record a portrait video… and then change the depth of field in post.”

Meanwhile, the news that Apple is set to roll out the iPhone 13 barely a few months after the launch of the iPhone 12 has ignited reactions on social media. Not to be left out, a number of Nigerians have joined the conversation; even as many cited acts of desperation embarked on by some Nigerians to belong to the class of the latest iPhone users.
