{Disarmed} iPhone 13 mini: everything good about the mini with a battery that finally promises a day of use

iPhone 13 mini: everything good about the mini with a battery that finally promises a day of use

Probably last year's iPhone 12 mini was the variant of that family that sold the fewest units, but that does not seem to have mattered too much to APple, which has gone back to betting on "small" phones, and we have the iPhone 13 mini with us.

This new version, which accompanies the new iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max, maintains the philosophy of its predecessor: it is still a beast inside , although logically it has to make certain concessions compared to its older brothers who, yes, they do not detract from your interest.

A design that benefits from a smaller notch

As with the iPhone 13, the notch reduces in size by 20%. That's important and makes more space visible on the screen, but none of the front-facing camera features or the FaceID facial recognition system are sacrificed.

At the rear, the arrangement of the two sensors changes in a singular way , which are now aligned diagonally and which of course make the difference with the previous year's model.

The new iPhone 13 mini has five colors available, among which there is a new pink tone that completes the rest of the tones with which Apple offers this model.

The battery shines above everything else

The specification sheet of the new iPhone 13 mini is remarkable, and it certainly highlights its new SoC, the Apple A15 Bionic chip that in addition to offering 5G connectivity, promises fantastic performance. It is manufactured with 5 nm photolithography, something that allows this chip to integrate almost 15,000 million transistors .


That processor has six cores: two high-performance and four high-efficiency , and according to Apple its performance is 50% "than the best competitor" which, we assume, is the Snapdragon 888. Both its GPU, with four cores (30 % more powerful than those of the competition, they also assure in Cupertino), as its Neural Engine, with 16 cores, contribute to the good performance of the terminal.

Its 5.4-inch XDR Super Retina Display also gains integers: it is now 28% brighter and reaches up to 1200 nits with HDR mode (800 nits without that mode). That, they promise at Apple, does not affect the autonomy of the terminal, and the reason is a new improved system in its OLED panel that improves the efficiency of that screen.


However, much more relevant than those improvements for many users is probably the battery life , which wins many integers in the iPhone 13 mini.

In fact, according to Apple, the autonomy of the iPhone 13 mini is 1.5 hours longer than that of the iPhone 12 mini . That could be an important change for the success of a terminal that promises to last a whole day using it. Of course, it will have to be verified in real tests.

These cameras are more cinematic than ever

The camera module changes slightly: the main camera has a sensor with 1.7-micron pixels that Apple claims capture 47% more light than last year's model, allowing it to capture more light in scenarios with low light and do it with less noise in the capture.


That sensor has a 12-megapixel resolution and an f / 1.6 aperture , while the new sensor for the ultra-wide-angle camera is 12-megapixel with f / 2.4 aperture and a 120-degree field of view.

These sensors stand out for having the Sensor Shift stabilization technology - which physically moves the main sensor to reduce vibrations - of last year's iPhone 12 Pro Max, but the photos are not the ones that benefit the most from these sensors: it is the recording Of video.

That's where "Kinematic Mode" comes in , a new video recording system that allows focus to change during movie recording. With this recording mode the focus changes automatically when people enter the frame of the scene, but we can also change that focus in the process.


This new cinematic mode was shown in a curious demonstration video that of course made clear the creative possibilities that this type of recordings have, much closer to what we can see in movies or television series , and that we can now achieve with cameras. of the new iPhone 13.

That mode records in Dolby Vision, and that HDR mode is also applied when recording for example in 4K at 60 frames per second , an option available on all cameras.

Price and availability of the iPhone 13 mini

The new iPhone 13 mini can be reserved from today, and will be available on September 24 with the following prices:

  • iPhone 13 Mini (128 GB): 809 euros .
  • iPhone 13 Mini (256 GB): 929 euros .
  • iPhone 13 Mini (512 GB): 1,159 euros .
