With an enhanced camera, more storage, longer battery life, and a tiny price decrease, the iPhone 13 is a minor update to last year’s outstanding iPhone 12. Apple’s new regular-sized smartphone costs £779 ($799 or A$1,349), which is £20 less than its predecessor and falls between the £679 iPhone 13 tiny and the £949 iPhone 13 Pro. The phone’s overall design is similar to that of its predecessor. It has the same flat aluminum sides and toughened glass front and rear as previous year. It’s 12g heavier and somewhat thicker, but the difference isn’t visible unless you compare them side by side.

THE IOS 15:
The iPhone 13 comes with iOS 15, which is compatible with all Apple handsets since the iPhone 6S in 2015.
This contains new features like Siri’s quicker, localized voice interpretation, better notifications, and “focus modes.”
CAMERA: Both cameras are larger and let in more light than last year’s models, with the main camera benefiting the most. Even in high contrast scenarios, photos taken with good light are detailed, clear, and well balanced. Low-light performance is vastly improved, requiring the use of the dedicated night mode significantly less frequently while providing sharper, more balanced images. The ultrawide is a touch crisper and performs better in low light.
PRICE: The iPhone 13 has 128GB of storage for £779 ($799/A$1,349), 256GB for £879 ($899/A$1,519), and 512GB for £1,079 ($1,099/A$1,869). The iPhone 13 small is £679, the iPhone 13 Pro is £949, the Samsung Galaxy S21+ is £949, the OnePlus 9 is £629, and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is £949.

Review of the iPhone 13 mini A small phone with a huge punch.
There are some faults in the standard iPhone 13. In comparison to certain Android phones, charging is still slow. I also don’t like that the 120Hz display and telephoto zoom are only available on the iPhone 13 Pro variants. However, this new iPhone is the greatest phone for the money, according to my in-depth iPhone 13 review.
