Apple is giving its iPhones a faster chip and better cameras before the important Christmas business. The iPhone 13 presented on Tuesday retained the exterior design of the current generation with angular edges. But the recess for cameras and sensors for facial recognition at the top of the screen has been reduced by 20 percent. The iPhone is by far the most important Apple product and at times brought in up to two thirds of the group’s business. Most recently, however, its share of sales fell below 50 percent, among other things because Mac computers and iPad tablets became significantly more popular during the corona pandemic. Apple is now also renewing the iPad and the smaller iPad mini.
The Apple Watch computer watch is getting a slightly larger display in the new Series 7 generation presented on Tuesday. Since the frame around the screen has been made thinner, it is only a little larger than the previous model. With more space, Apple can now, for the first time, type on a small keyboard on the display. Before the online event, it was speculated that Apple wanted to radically change the design of the computer clock.
