Nobody makes small phones any more, but thankfully Apple didn’t get the memo. The iPhone 13 mini is an iPhone 13 in power, style and capability, but shrunk into a far more pocketable package.

Why buy an Apple iPhone 13 mini?

Mozillion Apple iPhone 13 mini review

 

One of the fastest phones you can buy
Great screen, smaller design
Incredibly stylish and surprisingly strong

Not convinced? Try one of these alternatives to an Apple iPhone 13 mini:

iPhone 13 - same phone, bigger size and screen
iPhone 13 Pro - same phone, bigger, with a better camera
iPhone 12 mini - last year’s model, but you’d hardly know it

 

Introduction

With the new iPhone 13 mini, Apple has gone for relatively minor upgrades over the iPhone 12 mini. There’s more storage, a faster processor, and an improvement to the already impressive battery life. The camera gets a makeover, too.

While it might not be mould-breaking, the iPhone 13 mini remains one of the most feature packed and powerful small phones you can get. It combines 5G, waterproofing, gorgeous style and bullet-proof build quality, all in an eminently pocketable package.

 
 

Design

There’s lots to admire about the iPhone 13 mini. Most importantly, it’s a genuinely small phone by today’s standards, making it easy to use one-handed or slip into smaller pockets or bags. It features the same bezel-free design as other iPhones, so the 5.4” screen extends very nearly to the actual edge of the phone. At the front there’s Ceramic Shield glass, incredibly resistant to drop damage, and the sides are made of tough but classy aluminium.

The iPhone 13 mini shares the straight edges found on the iPhone 12 mini, but it’s subtly different in a couple of other ways. The camera lenses are ranged diagonally in a slightly larger camera hump, and the screen notch is noticeably smaller. It’s put on a few grams, weighing in at 140g, and it’s a quarter of a millimetre deeper. Connectivity is still via a Lightning port, and you can jazz the whole thing up with a range of MagSafe accessories.

 
 

Camera

The iPhone 13 mini combines a single 12-megapixel front-facing camera with a 12MP dual camera system at the rear. While the raw specifications might be unremarkable, incredible image processing ensures that the iPhone 13 mini takes pictures you’ll want to keep. The wide-angle lens has a new larger sensor and a big ƒ/1.6 aperture for great low-light performance, enhanced by image stabilisation and powerful night mode processing.

Not much else has changed compared to the iPhone 12 mini. The rear camera now benefits from sensor-shift stabilisation - previously restricted only to Pro models. There’s also Photographic Styles, a new set of smart filters that can selectively improve areas of a scene - for example, by boosting colour without ruining skin tones.

 
 

Video

Despite its small size, the iPhone 13 mini packs in great filmmaking features. Both the front and rear cameras record 4K video up to 60 frames per second, and you can even shoot HDR Dolby Vision at up to 60fps. The rear camera supports HD slo-mo at 240fps, while the front camera manages 120fps.

Perhaps the best of the new features is Cinematic Mode, which works a bit like Portrait Mode but for videos. Use it to create more compelling videos with a shallow depth of field, for example framing a pin-sharp face against an out-of-focus car interior. You can edit blur and focus after shooting, too.

 
 

Display

The iPhone 13 mini inherits almost exactly the same 5.4” OLED screen used in the iPhone 12 mini. Resolution remains at 2,340x1,080 for a pixel depth of 476 pixels per inch, making this the sharpest of all the iPhone 13 screens. A minor tweak sees the typical max brightness rise from 625 to 800 nits, while contrast remains an impressive 2,000,000:1. Unfortunately there’s still no boost to the 60Hz refresh rate - only the iPhone 13 Pro models get 120Hz.

One small but significant change is that the trademark ‘notch’ housing the TrueDepth camera has shrunk - it’s still bigger than the cutout used by many competitors, though.

 
 

Processor

The iPhone 13 mini gets Apple’s latest A15 Bionic chip, which gives it more than enough speed to see off the fastest competitors. But while the iPhone 13 Pro models get a five-core graphics processing unit (GPU), the iPhone 13 mini has four. While this means it lags behind the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max in benchmarking and challenging games, we challenge anyone to notice the difference in everyday use - it’s still one of the fastest phones you can buy.

 
 

Battery

Apple has managed to eke out more battery life across the iPhone 13 range, and says that the iPhone 13 mini can play back video for an impressive 17 hours. It can stream video for 13 hours, or play audio for up to 55 hours. In everyday use we’d expect it to last somewhere around the average of those figures - certainly going more than a day between charges.

When the juice does run out, you can charge the iPhone 13 mini with a Qi or MagSafe wireless charger. And if you’ve got a 20W wired charger, Apple says you can expect to restore 50% charge in less than 30 minutes.

 
 

Colours & Options

Like the regular iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 mini comes in blue, pink and red. You can also choose midnight or starlight - essentially fancy shades of black and white. You can now choose from 128GB, 256GB or a generous 512GB of storage - gone is the stingy 64GB previously reserved for the entry-level model.

You still won’t find headphones or a charger in the box, however. The iPhone 13 mini arrives only with a USB-C to Lightning cable. You’ll need a USB-A to Lightning cable to charge from most power adaptors, cars and other devices. Other accessories are more exciting, especially the range of colourful MagSafe cases and chargers. Note that the iPhone 13 mini is slightly deeper than the iPhone 12 mini - most iPhone 12 mini cases won’t fit.

iPhone 13 Mini FAQs

It’s already out! The iPhone 13 mini was unveiled and launched in September 2021.

The cheapest iPhone 13 mini has 128GB of storage and costs £679. You can upgrade to 256GB for £779, or get the 512GB model for £979. Of course, these are Apple’s prices - you can buy an iPhone 13 mini for less at Mozillion!
Yes. Apple says the iPhone 13 mini can survive water up to six metres deep for 30 minutes. While we wouldn’t go swimming with one, it’ll definitely shrug off everyday spills - or the dreaded toilet drop.

It does! All iPhone 13 models are 5G ready.

No, the iPhone 13 mini has a 60Hz refresh rate. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max both have ProMotion, an adaptive refresh rate technology that does go up to 120Hz.
No. At least, not without an expensive repair bill.

Like most iPhones since the iPhone X, the iPhone 13 mini uses camera-based FaceID rather than fingerprint-based TouchID. The iPhone SE (2020) is the only current iPhone that still uses TouchID.

To turn off an iPhone 13 mini, press and hold the side button with either volume button until the power off slider appears. When it does, drag it across and wait 30 seconds for the phone to fully shut down.
If the phone is on, turn it off following the instructions above. If it’s already off, press and hold the side button on the right-hand side until the Apple logo appears. If it doesn’t appear, charge the phone for a few minutes first.
Briefly press and hold the side button along with the volume up button. You’ll hear a shutter sound, and a screenshot thumbnail should appear on the screen. Tap this to edit, share or delete the screenshot.
To video what’s on your screen, you first need to add Screen Record to the Control Centre. Tap Settings, Tap Control Centre, scroll to Screen Recording and tap the green cross next to it. With this done, swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen to open Control Centre and tap the Screen Record icon. If you want to narrate the recording, hold down the icon and switch the microphone on. Recording begins after three seconds.
Swipe up from the bottom of the screen and pause in the middle to view recent app previews. Swipe right or left to find the app you want to close, then swipe it up off the top of the screen.
You can check your battery at any time by swiping down from the top right to open Control Centre. If you need at-a-glance checking, add a widget by tapping and holding the screen until the phone icons start dancing. Tap +, select Batteries in the widgets popup, choose the style you want, then tap Add Widget to add it to your screen.
First you need to set Apple Pay up: open Settings and tap Wallet & Apple Pay. Read the Apple Pay overview, then tap Continue and tap Credit or Debit Card to add a card. Either use a card that’s already associated with your Apple account, or tap Add a Different Card, scan the card, then tap Continue. Once you’ve provided the card’s three-digit security code and agreed any additional terms and conditions, tap Continue to finish the process. You can use Apple Pay on any contactless terminal. Double-press the side button on the phone, select your card if you’ve more than one set up, authenticate with Face ID, then place the phone near the terminal just as you would a payment card.
