There is a 6-core processor in the chip with two performance cores and four efficiency cores.

The new iPhone 13 looks almost identical to the iPhone 12 but has different camera locations and with all the internals being different. According to Digital Camera World, the camera right now is the best on the market, with the Google Pixel 5 coming in second. The iPhone battery life lasts for about 19 hours; video playback, 15 hours streaming online videos; and 75 hours of audio playback with 3,227 milliamp hours.

They were released on Oct. 26, 2021, at $179, cheaper than Airpod Pro and a little more expensive than Airpod Second Generation. The new Airpods are pretty much just Pros without the ear tips on them and being almost the same internally with the exception of noise cancelation and being able to play for six hours instead of the past model with four and a half hours.
