iPhone 13

Yesterday, Apple released the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. The new Cinematic Mode looks promising, even though it's limited to 1080p at 30 fps—it can autofocus subjects as they come into a scene and unfocus when they look away, plus you can adjust which subject to focus on real-time and change the focus at any moment in your footage after recording. (These selections aren't baked into the video but digitally generated.) It's great to see the storage capacities starting at 128GB and going up to 1TB on the high-end model.

The iPhone 13 mini will probably be the one to replace my iPhone 6. The mini is slightly smaller than the iPhone 6, yet its screen (5.4-inch) is larger than the one on the 6 (4.7-inch). I can't imagine carrying a Pro Max daily.
