‘[T]”Her results weren’t so drastic that someone with an iPhone 12 would need or even want a regular iPhone 13,” Stern wrote.

‘It was only after looking at the side-by-side pictures on my monitor that I could see the difference – better handling of city lights, reflections in the water. Compare it to the iPhone XR or the iPhone 11 though? The difference is more pronounced.
