Global reviews of the iPhone 13 boasts about the device’s great camera system and incredible battery life but turns down a notch due its similarity to the 12s. It features a beautiful design with sleek flat edges in five awesome colors.
Both models, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, have major innovations such as the most advanced dual-camera system. It has a new wide camera with bigger pixels and sensor-shift optical image stabilization (OIS) offering improvements in low-light photos and videos, a new way to personalize the camera with Photographic Styles, and Cinematic mode, which brings a new dimension to video story telling.
Apple’s new iPhone also boasts super-fast performance and power efficiency with A15 Bionic, longer battery life, a brighter Super Retina XDR display that brings content to life, incredible durability with the Ceramic Shield front cover, double the entry-level storage at 128 GB, an industry leading IP68 rating for water resistance, and an advanced 5G experience.
Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice-president of Worldwide Marketing, said their customers rely on iPhone every day, which is why Apple has made iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini more powerful, more capable and more fun to use. “Both phones have beautiful designs, industry-leading performance and advanced camera systems with impressive computational photography features, all with incredible durability, water resistance, and a big jump in battery life to ensure customers can depend on their iPhone when they need it. All of this tightly integrate with iOS 15 and with privacy built in, make iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini an unbeatable choice.”
Major battery life improvements come to both devices and has been made possible by A15 Bionic, more efficient components, a larger battery and power optimizations from a deep integration of hardware and software. iPhone 13 delivers incredible all-day battery life, offering up to two and a half more hours in a day than iPhone 12, and iPhone 13 mini provides up to an hour and a half more in a day than iPhone 12 mini.
However, The Verge highlighted that the 9% extra battery life on the iPhone 13 mini and 15% more on the iPhone 13 is considered excellent through comparisons with the iPhone 12 iterations are meaningless unless one has actually tried the devices. “The iPhone mini’s improvement is more faint praise though, as if you use this little phone like it’s a big smartphone, you will drain the battery by early afternoon or even lunch.”
Reviewers have also pointed out that Apple’s iPhone 13 lineup all featured incremental updates, but many of those features were a welcome upgrade over previous models.
