The iPhone 13 mini still has a 5.4-inch display, but it’s now more colorful and has a much higher brightness at 1,200 nits when watching HDR content, and it’s also brighter at 800 nits when outside. The device also has a wider color gamut display, which means that it can show more colors.


The compact iPhone 13 mini is powered by the same chipset that powers the larger iPhone 13 and the Pro series – Apple’s latest A15 Bionic chip. The memory and battery information are usually not known until the device receives a full teardown, however, the iPhone 12 mini had 4GB of RAM and 2,227mAh capacity battery. The storage options are also the same as for the vanilla iPhone 13, which is 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB of internal storage.

Apple iPhone 13 mini Cameras

The 13 mini features the same camera setup that can be found on the standard iPhone 13, which is a 12MP f/1.6 main sensor with PDAF, Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). The secondary camera is a 12MP f/2.4 ultrawide sensor. Apple has improved the night mode and low-light capabilities, resulting in much higher quality images.
