The iPhone 13, 13 Mini, 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max have several features in common. The quartet brings together advanced data sheet with the Apple A15 Bionic processor, storage up to 1 TB and 5G support. Still, each edition has specific features such as screen size and the number of cameras. Find out the difference between apple’s new phones in the following comparison.
The 2021 generation repeated the visual identity of the models presented in 2020. That is, from the iPhone 13 Mini to the iPhone 13 Pro Max, the consumer finds the straight sides. Still, Apple employed a significant shift beyond that: the notch was reduced on all four models.
But, of course, the quartet is not the same. Starting with conventional editions and the Mini, the two phones have 6.1 and 5.4-inch OLED display, respectively. In addition, the duo has an update rate of 60 Hz and the following color options: blue, white, black, pink, green and red.
Pro models are more advanced. The duo draws attention by ProMotion, a technology that allows you to increase the refresh rate to up to 120 Hz. This means that smartphones have more fluid graphics in games, movies and other adapted content.

The two smartphones also have different measures. While the iPhone 13 Pro is 6.1 inches, the Max edition is 6.7 inches – the largest in the quartet. But the amount of colors in the Pro editions is smaller: blue–sierra, gold, graphite, silver and alpine green.
The quartet still has Ceramic Shield protection on the screen. Another common point is IP68 certification that attests to the water and dust resistance of Apple phones. But don’t go around dipping your phone in the water for nothing!
The camera is the great decoy of the iPhone. And the new generation did not leave the tradition behind: as it was attest in our review, the iPhone 13 Mini delivered “a set capable of working with resourcefulness in any environment”. In addition, the larger lenses helped capture more light, benefiting the details of the images.
This is not the only increment of the quartet. Apple also included a feature known as Cinema Mode. The technology applies a kind of portrait mode to videos recorded with mobile phones. The feature, however, only shoots at 1080p at 30 frames per second (fps).
But let’s talk about each other. The iPhone 13 and 13 Mini continue with dual camera 12 megapixels. The cluster is formed by the main sensor with an aperture of f/1.6 and the secondary sensor with ultrawide lens (aperture f/2.4). On the front, there is a front camera with the same resolution and face ID (True Depth) sensors.
Cutting-edge performance is another trademark of the iPhone. And, following tradition, the new generation brings a new processor: the Apple A15 Bionic. According to the manufacturer in September 2021, the component has 50% faster CPU and GPU 30% faster than the competition. The new chip is also capable of working with 15.8 billion operations per second.
Still, there are differences between the models. The four variants have six CPU cores, but the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini have five GPU cores while the Pro editions have six GPU cores. That is, the more advanced models tend to deliver faster graphics.
The quartet brings other points in common, such as 5G support and the ability to use two eSIM virtual chips at the same time. Apple Pay, for nfc approach payments, is also present. In addition, all models have been advertised with factory iOS 15 and have Face ID for facial unlocking.
