Sensor shift optical image stabilization
Apple has also included sensor shift optical image stabilization in iphone 12, which was introduced in last year's iphone 12 pro max only. sensor shift optical image stabilizes the camera's sensor instead of the lens for even greater image stabilization and improved photo quality.
Apple has introduced a “cinematic mode” for video recording. While recording the video, the lens automatically changes its focus in real time when object enter the frame and not focussing while they are not . The cinematic mode is available for all iphone 13 models in both front and rear cameras.
ProRes is a video codec developed by Apple that compresses the video without compremising image and color data, giving greater quality after post production edits. This is a technology that is used in film production, but is the first time seen in a smartphone.
Apple has limited ProRes in 4K resolution at 30fps only for variants above 256 GB, while the lesser storage pro models can shoot ProRes at a resolution of only 1080 at 30fps.
Apple's Super Retina XDR display has improved greatly with the introduction of iphone 13 and iphone 13 pro, that gives a great advantage in terms of usability. Some of best features are,

So you will have a clear visible display even in the direct sunlight. With the smaller notch, the display has become slightly bigger.
120Hz Refresh Rate
Apple has finally introduced a 120 Hz display in its lineup which is a great feature. The display takes adaptive refresh rate which starts from 10Hz to 120 Hz across different supported apps depending upon the speed of your fingerprint.
Apple has ditched its 64 GB to a base storage of 128 GB for all variants of its iPhones which is a great initiative from Apple. Apple has been largely criticized for keeping a less 64 GB as the base variant, which forced users to go for the 256 or 512 GB variant.
Apple has also expanded its storage from 512 GB to 1 TB variant for its Pro variants, making it the highest storage variant in an iphone. The non Pro variant supports upto 512 GB only.
Apple's A15 5nm Bionic chip is the most powerful chipset ever used in a smartphone. The Iphone pro consists of 6 core CPU, out of which 2 is a high performance core and 4 is an energy efficient core.
As in the case of GPU, the pro variant has a 5 core GPU and the normal variant has a 4 core GPU. The pro version gets an extra core GPU from its previous generation iphone. Apple says it can deliver a better performance of extra 30% from its competition.
