Considering the Alpine Green iPhone 13 Pro? This is what it looks like

The Apple iPhone 13 models were unveiled in September 2021, but Apple refreshed the lineup at its Peek Performance event in March 2022 with a few new color additions.

The iPhone 13 Pro models offer a nice finish with their matte glass backs and polished stainless steel frames and the Alpine Green color is great accenting the design. There’s a nice depth of color, and while it doesn’t quite live up to the midnight green of the iPhone 11 Pro for us in terms of a favorite, it’s definitely up there.

As with other iPhone 13 Pro models, the Alpine Green option features a color-matched frame and camera housing, although the camera housing has a bit more pop than the rest of the rear thanks to the glossy finish.

Under the hood, nothing has changed, so you will find the A15 Bionic chip, a triple rear camera consisting of a 12-megapixel main sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens and some cool features like Cinematic Mode and Photographic Styles.
