Which iPhone 13 is right for you?

You’ve got four amazing iPhones to choose from.

01 Nov 2021

The iPhone 13 family is here, with four models to choose from: iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Not sure which one to go for? Let us help you out.

Well show you the major benefits of each model in a moment. But first, lets talk about a few headline-hitting features that all four share…

Super Retina XDR OLED display
The new iPhone family all have a Super Retina XDR OLED display – as did the iPhone 12 family - but this time its even better. It can go up to 25% brighter, so you can carry on watching or scrolling when you step out into bright sunlight.

A15 Bionic Chip
The new A15 Bionic Chip is on board each model, and its a real powerhouse. Its the fastest CPU thats ever been in any smartphone, and up to 50% quicker than the competition. Its also incredibly power efficient, which is good news for battery life.

Cinematic Mode
Then theres new Cinematic Mode, which we absolutely love. Start shooting a video, and the focus automatically shift with the action on screen. It can even anticipate when a new object is about to move into shot! Oh, and it works with the selfie camera too.

Got all that? Good. Now lets take a look at what each individual iPhone has to offer…

 

iPhone 13 Mini
