The entry-level iPhone 13 will be available in two sizes, as it was last year: a 6.1-inch “regular” model and a smaller 5.4-inch iPhone 13 Mini. The screen remains an OLED display with metal sides placed between two glass slabs.

The iPhone 13 is priced at Rs 79,900 for the 64GB variant while the iPhone 13 mini is available at Rs 69,900. Each storage variant of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini will be available in three sizes. In India, the iPhone 13 small 128GB costs Rs. 69,900, the 256GB costs Rs. 79,900, and the 512GB costs Rs. 99,900. The iPhone 13 will be available for Rs. 79,900, Rs. 89,900, and Rs. 99,900.
The iPhone 13 starts at $799, while the iPhone 13 Mini starts at $699. Apple has increased the storage options for this year's models, giving 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB variants for the two models.
iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini specifications
However, unlike the iPhone 12, which received a significant redesign, the iPhone 13 retains the same overall design as last year's model, albeit with a 20 per cent smaller Face ID notch, which means it will take up less space at the top of your phone.
Of course, there's a more powerful processor: the A15 Bionic, which Apple claims is quicker and more power-efficient than the A14 Bionic chip from last year. It's still a 5nm chip with a 6-core CPU (two high-performance and four high-efficiency cores), but Apple claims it's the "fastest CPU in a smartphone," with performance up to 50% quicker than the competition. It also claims that its visuals are up to 30% faster than those of its competitors (though it doesn't mention who it's comparing to).
The most significant change is trickled-down camera technology from last year's iPhone 12 Pro Max: the base iPhone 13 now has the same beefed-up camera that Apple debuted with its largest smartphone in 2020, with a physically larger sensor for the wide camera that's 47 per cent bigger than last year, allowing it to capture more light in darker environments with less noise.
The 12-megapixel wide sensor has an f/1.6 aperture, while the 12-megapixel ultrawide camera has a faster f/2.4 aperture and a 120-degree field of view. The iPhone 13 will reportedly include Apple's sensor-shift stabilisation technology, which physically adjusts the broad sensor to decrease vibrations and was first featured on the iPhone 12 Pro Max last year.
Apple also revealed a new “cinematic mode” for video, which enables for a rack focus effect to vary the emphasis during a video, as demonstrated in a Knives Out-style parody. As recording a video, the cinematic mode will intelligently adjust focus when people enter the frame or look away from the camera while filming in real-time. You'll also be able to alter the focus manually or lock it on a certain object for more precise control.
In comparison to the iPhone 12, Apple promises increased 5G performance, as well as more band support for better international 5G experiences. By the end of the year, Apple says that the iPhone will be supported by 200 carriers in over 60 nations and regions.
The new iPhone 13 lineup will also have better battery life: the iPhone 13 Mini will get 1.5 hours more battery life than the iPhone 12 Mini, and the larger iPhone 13 will get up to 2.5 hours more battery life than the iPhone 12, thanks to larger batteries, improved performance from the A15 Bionic, and additional software improvements and optimizations.
