Apple’s Keynote took place on Tuesday, September 14th. The Keynote is always mind blowing, with crazy CGI and superb overall production quality. This year’s presentation started with a revision of Apple Fitness, the Apple Watch, and the entry level iPad, as well as a complete redesign to the iPad Mini.

As always, they saved the best for last – the iPhone. Starting with the entry-level iPhone – the 13 and 13 Mini. Most users may not notice too many changes from the 12 to the 13. However, there are some minor updates with the cameras and the display, something users have come to expect when new models launch. The cameras are placed differently than in the past – now arranged diagonally as opposed to directly on top of each other. The 13 and 13 Mini still feature the same camera styles as before, with one being a traditional lens and one being an ultra-wide lens. The ultra-wide lens now features a macro mode, most often seen on high-end cameras with lenses dedicated to that job. The display is also now significantly brighter – with a peak brightness of 1000 nits. (1 nit is equal to the brightness of one candle)
