However, no sooner did the iPhone 13 launched, as usual, kidney jokes started flowing in and how.
At the event, Apple said that despite the faster chip, 5G and other features, the iPhone 13 has a better battery life than its predecessor. Apple said that switching to LTE “when 5G speed isn’t needed” did the trick for them in battery life.
