Best reason to upgrade to NEW iPhone 13 revealed – and it's NOT the camera

APPLE’S new iPhone 13 is getting rave reviews – but its best upgrade isn’t the new camera or 5G.

The Sun has already tested the device – you can read about it in our iPhone 13 review.

Apple has made huge improvements to the camera, which now takes much better snaps in the dark.

And the new iPhone 13 supports speedy 5G internet – a feature only added last year.

But one of the biggest upgrades for everyday iPhone users is the boost to storage.

The entry-level iPhone 13 now has 128GB of storage.

That’s double the 64GB storage included on the iPhone 12.

Importantly, the price of the iPhone 13 remains the same in the US – and is actually cheaper in the UK by £20.

If you’ve ever owned an iPhone, you’ve likely run out of storage at some point.

But 128GB should be enough for most users – and future-proofs the device for several more years.

The iPhone has come a long way since the first model, which had a paltry 4GB of storage as standard.

This allowance has crept up over the years, accounting for a wider array of apps – many of which are more powerful and space-consuming.

And we all store thousands (or even tens of thousands) of photos, which simply wouldn't fit on such a small device.

Here’s a history of how much storage iPhones have had over the years…

  • iPhone – 4GB
  • iPhone 3G – 8GB
  • iPhone 3GS – 8GB
  • iPhone 4 – 16GB
  • iPhone 4S – 16GB
  • iPhone 5 – 16GB
  • iPhone 5S – 16GB
  • iPhone 6 – 16GB
  • iPhone 6S – 16GB
  • iPhone 7 – 32GB
  • iPhone 8 – 64GB
  • iPhone X – 64GB
  • iPhone XS – 64GB
  • iPhone 11 – 64GB
  • iPhone 12 – 64GB
  • iPhone 13 – 128GB

Of course, Apple also introduced its biggest storage iPhone ever this year.

The new iPhone 13 Pro can be purchased with a staggering 1TB of storage.

But it costs an eye-watering $1,599 / £1,549 – so very few people will be able to afford it.

It’s also worth remembering that 1TB is frankly excessive unless you’re shooting huge amounts of ProRes footage with the iPhone.

For most people, 128GB or 256GB will be more than enough.

The iPhone 13 starts from $699/£679 for the Mini, or $799/£779 for the normal version.

Apple starts selling the handsets on Friday, September 24.
