iPhone 13 Mini offers a plethora of brand-new features to get excited about, from the latest iOS 15 operating system to the A15 Bionic chipset. Despite its smaller size and the fact that it’s the most affordable of the iPhone 13 series handsets, iPhone 13 Mini is still a premium option. Here are a few more highlights from this flagship device that we can’t get enough of…

1) Design & display

Courtesy of iPhone 13 Mini’s smaller dimensions, you immediately notice how effortless it is to text, tweet, and scroll with one hand. The 5.4-inch Super Retina XDR display is highly immersive, and ideal for watching your favourite Netflix show, wherever you are. On top of that, the Ceramic Shield front and IP68 water and dust resistance rating will protect your smartphone from everyday wear and tear, so you’ll have peace of mind during the occasional mishap.

Not to mention the useful True Tone feature, which adjusts the colour and brightness to suit your surroundings, great for those late-night reading sessions.

2) Dual-lens camera

iPhone 13 Mini is equipped with a dual-lens rear camera, comprised of a 12MP wide lens, and a second 12MP ultra-wide lens with a 120-degree field of view to help you capture memories, from large family photos to beautiful landscape shots.


Take high-resolution photographs at any time of the day with iPhone 13 Mini’s dedicated Night mode. Simply put, Night mode automatically increases the brightness photographic shots, even when there’s minimal lighting, allowing you to see every detail of your captured images. You’ll find all the standard settings you’d expect with a premium smartphone with the brilliant Portrait Lighting feature, which gives you license to experiment with six different effects, including Natural, Studio, Contour, Stage, Stage Mono, and High Key Light Mono.

Meanwhile, Cinematic Mode gives you the ability to record videos with a shallow depth of field and add subtle nuances to your work, like focus transitions from one subject to another. This transforms your videos into professional-grade content, perfect for aspiring vloggers and filmmakers.

3) iOS 15 update

The iOS 15 update comes pre-installed on iPhone 13 Mini and offers an abundance of new features. One highlight is SharePlay, which enables you to simultaneously listen to music, watch a film or TV show, during a FaceTime session with your friend – all from the same device. Plus, you can share your screen so the recipient can see exactly what you’re seeing from your smartphone, to make sharing content that much easier.


As well as that, the clever Live Text feature means you can grab text from an image you’ve taken, and place it directly into another document, or even translate it.

Getting from one destination to another has never been easier thanks to the improvements iOS 15 brings to Apple Maps. By using augmented reality, the app will prompt you with directions and display exactly which street to head down. Simply hold up the handset in front of you and iPhone 13 Mini will do the rest.

4) Li-ion battery

iPhone 13 Mini’s excellent battery life and reliable performance is down to the outstanding non-removable Li-ion battery. Built with a battery capacity of 4352 mAh, you don’t have to stress about where the nearest plug-in adapter is with this handset. Not to mention iPhone 13 Mini’s fast charging capabilities, which can get you back up to 50% in just 30 minutes with a 20W adapter (sold separately).


If you prefer to charge up without any cables, you can also opt to use wireless charging, with any Qi-certified compatible wireless charger – just place your phone on the pad and leave it to power up.

5) A15 Bionic Chip

iPhone 13 Mini’s lightning-fast performance is all thanks to the ground-breaking A15 Bionic chip. This versatile chipset consists of a 16 core Neural engine, which sees an increase in the CPU speed of up to 50%, and – according to Apple – is up to fifteen times faster than iPhone 13 Mini’s predecessor. As a result, Siri’s reaction time and precision is enhanced, so you can make the most of the smart assistant.


The dedicated A15 Bionic chip is also great news for gamers. Multi-tasking has never been easier, as iPhone 13 Mini has the potential to handle graphics-intensive games, as well as any other demanding applications – completely lag-free.
