James Gale Managing Editor Being a serial dropper of smartphones, I really appreciate the Ceramic Shield front cover. I haven’t broken a screen since they were first introduced. Martin Smith Group Senior Designer Being a graphic designer, it’s the iPhone’s visuals I most appreciate. The screens are wonderful; rich colours, deep blacks and no lag. Alan Hulme Staff Writer The 20 percent smaller notch at the top of the screen is welcome.

The cameras are better, there’s a new top-end capacity for both the regular and Pro models and battery life is higher too. Is it worth upgrading your current iPhone? If you have a 12-series model, definitely not, unless you have a ‘regular’ iPhone 12 and would prefer a Pro-model iPhone. If your smartphone is older than a 12, though, it might well be the time to invest in a new one. This issue is all about the iPhone 13, iPhone…

With 5G, this is much less of a problem. “The arrival of 5G marks the beginning of a new era for iPhone, and we’re thrilled…
