The ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ features a 6x optical zoom range thanks to a new 3x Telephoto camera.

A new "Cinematic mode" is able to blur the background of video in real-time, track objects and people, and rack focus. Night Mode is also now available on all of the rear cameras.

Photographic Styles bring individual preferences to local photo edits in real-time. Styles work across scenes and subject types and users do not need to define it every time they shoot. The ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ and ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ Max can shoot also video in ProRes up to 4K at 30fps for high color fidelity and efficient encoding.

The ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ and ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ Max can connect to more 5G bands using custom antennas and radio components. Both devices also feature up to 1TB of storage, the most ever offered in an iPhone.

I don’t understand. No touch ID or always on display, even on the Pro models? I’m looking for features that actually improve and make my life easier everyday. I may have to consider the Pixel 6 this year.
