Searching for the best iPhone 13 mini prices? The best iPhone 13 mini deals are well worth considering if you want a smartphone that has plenty of power but can more easily fit in a pocket. Apple dropped the iPhone mini from its range with the launch of the iPhone 14 in September 2022, no longer offering a smaller version of its standard smartphone, which means the iPhone mini remains the latest small Apple phone you can get.

Apple might have decided there wasn't a market for this compact phone, but think there's plenty to like about it. In fact, several of our team were disappointed to see it dropped from the lineup in 2022. Apple's smallest smartphone performs just as well as the standard iPhone in terms of processing power and camera capabilities, but in a package that's easier to hold and easier to pocket. It's also the cheapest iPhone, so it's easy on the pocket in more than one sense.

iPhone 13 mini size comparison

So just how mini is the iPhone 13 mini? The iPhone 13 has a 5.4in screen and measures 131.5 x 2.53mm (5.18 x 2.53in), while the standard iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro with their 6.1in screen measure 146.7 x 71.5m (5.78 x 2.82in). That means the mini is a full 15mm shorter, which is enough of a difference to notice when you're trying to fit it into a pocket. And it absolutely dwarves the iPhone 13 Pro Max, which has a 6.7in screen. That said, the screen size is larger than the that of the tiny 2020 iPhone SE and is close to the size of the old iPhone 8 Plus.

Are iPhone 13 and 13 mini cameras the same?

Yes, the cameras in the iPhone 13 mini and the standard iPhone 13 are the same. In fact, the iPhone 13 mini is essentially the same phone as the iPhone 13 but in a smaller package. You still get 5G support, MagSafe compatibility and, yes, a dual-lens camera system with a 12-megapixel main camera (f/1.6 aperture) and a 12-megapixel ultra wide-angle camera (f/2.4 aperture) and advanced features like Cinematic mode.

The iPhone 13 mini delivers all the power of the standard iPhone 13, with an A15 Bionic processor. Only battery life loses out since the battery is logically smaller, but when we reviewed the phone, we found that it still got us through the day. See our full iPhone 13 review for more details.

Is the iPhone 13 mini the last mini?

Yes, at least for now. In September 2022, Apple released the iPhone 14 range, and the iPhone mini was absent. Instead, Apple introduced the iPhone 14 Plus, which takes things the other way. It offers the same specs as the iPhone 14 but in a larger handset.
