What, what, exactly, do you want from a new phone, and why? First, battery life is the most important thing. A better camera is the second.
These are the two features that will make a huge difference in your smartphone’s day-to-day experience (assuming that the basics don’t matter). These are the exact things Apple attempted to improve in the iPhone 13/13 Mini.
The update for the iPhone 12 is iterative if you have one. The full list of improvements on the iPhone 13 for older iPhones is almost impossible to count.
The iPhone 12 introduced new technology and a fancy new design (and a Mini-sized version). Although the iPhone 13’s camera and battery updates aren’t as flashy as some, they are more important.
IPHONE 13 MINI DESIGNS AND SPECS
It’s not possible to distinguish between the iPhone 13 and its predecessors unless you look closely. The iPhone 12 and 12 Mini brought a new, flat-edged design to the iPhone. I believe it is a significant improvement over what was before. The iPhone 12 Mini was, undoubtedly, the first smartphone to offer a truly exceptional experience in a smartphone that has a smaller form factor.
It is worth revisiting all the major changes, as people have been keeping their smartphones longer than ever — especially iPhones. It’s fair that the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini are credited for their design since many people who will buy them won’t be familiar with the iPhone 12.
However, there are some modifications to this design. The iPhone 12 and 12 Mini are slightly thicker and have larger camera bumps. The iPhone 12 and 12 Mini cases will not fit the newer models.
Last but not least, the notch housing FaceID has been reduced by 20% and the selfie camera by 20%. But don’t be too excited about that. It has been reduced only on the horizontal axis so the additional screen you get is not significant (and Apple doesn’t use it to display more information, such as battery percentage).
The iPhone 13 features the A15 Bionic processor. It’s hard to see significant speed increases in iPhones. However, this is because iPhones feel faster for longer periods. Although the Pro models have one more GPU core than regular models, I haven’t noticed any difference.
IPHONE 13 BATTERY
The battery life of the iPhone 12 Mini last year was not as good as I expected. The battery life of the iPhone 12 Mini last year was not what I expected: it was very poor. Apple did the obvious: It made the battery bigger for the iPhone 13.
Apple’s battery claims for this year are mainly driven by larger batteries (9 percent on iPhone 13 Mini and 15.1%). The iPhone 13 will last two-and-a-half hours more than the iPhone 12 while the Mini will keep you going for an additional one-and-a-half hour.
The iPhone 12 is useless if it doesn’t work for you. The battery life of the iPhone 13 is great, but it doesn’t need to be compared.
IPHONE 13 CAMERAS
Both the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini share the same camera system, a regular wide-angle and ultrawide camera. Both cameras have been upgraded but the main improvement is wide-angle.
The improvement of the wide-angle camera sensor can be done in the same way as the battery: Make it larger. A larger camera sensor can take in more light faster and produce better results. Apple had just such a sensor: it was the one from the iPhone 12 Pro Max last year.
This is because the 12 Pro Max was the first iPhone to have a larger sensor than the rest. It’s the default sensor for this year. From the moment it was released, the 12 Pro Max has been the most popular smartphone camera for both video and photos.
