Speaker 1: Apple released a new color for the iPhone 13 and 13 pro and it's green. Uh, well, technically it's green on the 13 and Alpine green on the 13 pro, but I have both phones here and I wanna share my first impressions, my unboxing experience. And I wanna let you know whether you should get an iPhone 13 or 13 pro six months into its life cycle.
Speaker 1: It's becoming a bit of a spring tradition [00:00:30] that apple releases a new color of its iPhone. Last year, it was the iPhone 12 and purple. And this year we get an iPhone 13 and green, but we also get an iPhone 13 pro in Alpine green unboxing. The iPhone 13 and green is exactly the same as unboxing a non-green iPhone 13 or 13 mini the white box has the green phone on it with the word iPhone in green. The apple logo is also in green. This is the same thinner box design. The apple rolled out for the iPhone 12 series as a way to reduce its [00:01:00] impact on the environment. And there it is in all its dark green glossy glory. The front has a white paper-like factory screen cover over the display and it comes with just a lightning to USBC cable. There's no more headphones or power bricks in the box.
Speaker 1: There's also a squared off documentation envelope that has a SIM card tool, documentation papers. And of course that ubiquitous apple sticker, the green iPhone [00:01:30] 13 looks almost black under some lighting. Also that glossy back loves to attract a lot of lent. No matter how many times you wipe it down and to no surprise unboxing the iPhone own 13 pro in Alpine. Green is nearly an identical process since this is a pro. We of course have a black box, but there's the same white paper peel on the front screen, the same cable and the same documentation as the green iPhone [00:02:00] 13 had the matte finish on the back of the iPhone. 13 pro looks incredible in Alpine green. I don't have an iPhone 11 pro with me, but it's very similar to the midnight green finish on that. Just to get a better idea of the green on these phones.
Speaker 1: I put them next to a bunch of green objects ranging from a Maha donut and Perea water to baby yo and broccoli outdoors. The green really shines on both phones. The green glossy back of the iPhone [00:02:30] 13 is much easier to make out in sunlight while the 13 pro in its Alpine greenness seem to glow at sunset. You can even see how the glossy sides of the 13 pro contrast with the Matt aluminum rail of the green iPhone 13, in terms of functionality, both phones are identical to the iPhone 13 and 13 pro bottles released in September, 2021. It's the same a 15 hip same cameras. The only difference [00:03:00] is that these phones are green. Well more like a British racing green. Now some might call the green on the iPhone 13 forest screen. Look, there's a very range Rover Pacific Northwest vibe to these new finishes.
Speaker 1: And that brings me to the question. Should you, these green phones? Well, we are six months away from when the iPhone 13 and 13 pro launched, but we're also six months away from when the rumored and likely [00:03:30] iPhone 14 will launch. So we're in this weird, awkward halfway point through the iPhone thirteens first year lifestyle goal for most people. If you're due for an upgrade and looking to get an iPhone, I think it's silly to wait, just get one apple supports its phone for years with OS and security updates rolling out four or even five years after a phone is released. I mean, look, it's smart on apple to release a new color, to help renew the interest and iPhone [00:04:00] 13 and 13 pro. But I don't think you should hesitate buying either one right now. Now, if you are someone who wants the latest and the newest and you can wait six months, then there's that the iPhone 13 in green and the iPhone 13 pro in Alpine green are now available to buy for more on either phone, check out the links in the description.
Speaker 1: And let's us all agree that no matter what color iPhone you get or Android phone, most [00:04:30] people are gonna put it in a case. Luckily, apple makes green cases for both the iPhone 13 and 13 pro. So at least you can see the green while keeping your phone clean. And that's all I've got. Now, when I hear from you, what do you think of the new green colors? Were you hoping apple would announce a different color? Also, if you have an iPhone 11 pro at midnight green, how has its finished held up over the past couple years? Throw your thoughts in the comments.
