iPhone 13 (mini) - Bigger battery and better energy management

The Apple iPhone 13 and the Apple iPhone 13 mini both offer a larger battery than the predecessor of the 12 series from 2020. As part of the September keynote in 2021, it was noted that the interior of the smartphones was completely redesigned to accommodate the larger one To accommodate the battery. In addition to the larger battery, the better energy management of the A15 Bionic Chip also ensures energy-saving use. Last but not least, the OLED display also plays its part. In the end, the iPhone 13 mini should last up to 1,5 hours longer on a single charge. The iPhone 13 should be able to operate 2,5 hours longer.

New charging technology was not presented. While Xiaomi is currently promoting its "Hyper Charge" technology, Apple does not seem to have made too much progress in this area. The new iPhones can charge up to 20% battery within 30 minutes using the quick charge function with a charger that delivers 50 watts or more of power. Wireless charging using MagSafe technology is possible with up to 15 watts. The wireless Qi technology only brings half, i.e. 7,5 watts. Apple has not revealed what capacity in Wh or what nominal capacity in mAh the batteries have. A teardown (e.g. from iFixit) will have to show that.

Narrower notch, but no satellite telephony

In the last weeks and months before the Apple September Keynote 2021 there were numerous rumors about the new iPhone. Among other things, there were rumors that the iPhone 13 equipped with satellite radio should be. A Qualcomm X60 chip should be used for this and the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) radio bands should be supported. Alone, there was no mention of that yesterday. 

But what has been confirmed is the narrower notch. The camera and Face ID strips on the upper edge of the display are now 20% narrower than on the models since the iPhone X.

The prices of iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini

As always, there is no single price for the various models and versions of Apple smartphones. This year, the prices per model differ again, especially if a corresponding storage option is selected. The memory size of 64 GB was deleted and the previous sizes of 128 GB and 256 GB were expanded to include the next larger level of 512 GB. The price for the iPhone 13 and the price for the iPhone 13 mini are therefore as follows:

iPhone 13 mini iPhone 13
128 GB memory 799 € 899 €
256 GB memory 919 € 1.019 €
512 GB memory 1.149 € 1.249 €

If you already have an older iPhone, for example an iPhone 12, you can trade it in when you buy a new Apple smartphone. For example, if you want to exchange your iPhone 12 mini for a new model from 2021, you will receive up to 415 euros in credit. The iPhone 12 Pro Max brings you up to 715 euros. But even older models back to the iPhone X and iPhone 8 from 2017 ensure that you can achieve a credit in the three-digit range. You can find the selection of your current model for trading in when buying a new iPhone on the purchase page in the Apple Online Store.
