Introduced on September 14, the iPhone 13 and its mini counterpart are Apple's newest iPhones on the more affordable end. Both of the new iPhone 13 models are nearly identical in design to their respective previous models, featuring flat edges, an aluminum enclosure, a glass back, and a slight increase in overall density.
Both of the new models feature Super Retina XDR Displays that are substantially brighter. The front-facing camera system has been updated and the Face ID notch is now smaller, taking up less overall space.
The iPhone 13 models now have Cinematic Mode, a feature that uses rack focus to seamlessly shift focus from one subject to another, artfully blurring the background and creating movie-quality depth of field.
5G connectivity is included for better quality video streaming, higher-definition FaceTime calls, and improved gaming. The iPhone 13 support WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.
Battery life has improved significantly thanks to larger batteries. The iPhone 13 mini offers up to 1.5 hours more battery life than the iPhone 12 mini, and the iPhone 13 offers up to 2.5 hours more battery life than the iPhone 12. Storage space starts at 128GB and goes up to 512GB at the high end.
