The iPhone 13 has been made thicker and heavier than iPhone 12

Yesterday, Apple announced its new flagship iPhones: iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. But while Apple's announcement live stream was full of details, a few things were left out.

Fortunately, we learned a little more from Apple's update site, including dimensions and weight, specs information, and the older iPhone lineup that will persist beyond launch. New flagship products.

Thicker and Heavier

The iPhone 12 Pro is 6.66 ounces, but the iPhone 13 Pro is 7.19 ounces. This is true on a large scale. And the iPhone 13 is 0.25mm thicker than the iPhone 12; Similar thickness differences are also common.

This extra weight can be mainly attributed to the larger battery. Apple said it changed the components inside the iPhone to make room for the battery. Camera systems can also play a role.

Old Varieties

RAM Apple occasionally increases the amount of RAM it has in its iPhones with new iterations, but that's not the case this year. While Apple doesn't usually announce the amount of RAM a device has, MacRumors found references to RAM configurations for new phones in the Applemade Xcode developer tools. The iPhone 13 and 13 mini have 4GB of RAM, and the Pro models have 6GB, just like last year's iPhones.

According to Apple's online store, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 11 and iPhone SE will exist. But the previously available iPhone XR, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max appear to have been scrapped.
