The iPhone 13 Buyer's Guide

smartphonesshop.com.au - It’s that time of the year again, where we wave goodbye to our iPhones from yesteryear and embrace what the future (for at least another year) holds. As with the iPhone 12 release, Apple has released an iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max again, further improving upon what made the iPhone 12 Series great. While Apple fans might immediately opt for the iPhone 13 Pro Max, many of you might be left scratching your head over which variant to purchase. To make things simple as we always aspire to do, check out our guide on which iPhone 13 variant will suit you best alongside a guided tour from Apple below on which device is right for you.

 Which iPhone 13 Is Right For You?


The standard iPhone 13 certainly doesn’t disappoint when compared to its older siblings and at a glance, the most visible changes are the smaller notch and the diagonal back cameras which we have to admit looks nicer than the design of the iPhone 12. The A15 Bionic Chip delivers unprecedented speed while making multitasking more efficient than ever. If you’re the type with multiple tabs and apps always open, we don’t need to say any more! According to PhoneArena, an OLED screen with a resolution of 2532 x 1170 pixels awaits alongside 457 PPI plus a 60Hz rate which to put in simpler terms will look mind-blowingly good. Wondering how good the iPhone 13’s camera capabilities are? Well, you’re in for a treat as according to Apple, a new Ultra-Wide Camera will assist in showing more detail in darker areas of photos taken with 47% more light added! If you struggle to take proper photos you’ll also find plenty to love about the new sensor-shift Optical Image Stabilisation which should help even the worst photographer take Instagram worthy shots. To top it all off, Dolby Vision and Cinematic Mode will give you the power to create red carpet worthy movies while gifting you tools normally reserved for Hollywood’s finest, allowing you to effortlessly produce high-quality videos. Plus to further sweeten the deal, all features available in the back cameras will also be included in the front camera! iPhone 13 looks to be the device that just keeps on giving and proves to be a solid purchase.

For: Those that want a balanced and solid purchase. The best of all worlds.

iPhone 13 Pink

Mini is Better

From the news that Apple wasn’t happy with the iPhone 12 Mini’s sales, it would be natural to assume a predecessor wouldn’t be in the works. Thankfully they've decided to give the Mini iPhone another shot with the iPhone 13 Mini this year. To put it bluntly, the iPhone 13 Mini is a miniature beast offering everything that the standard iPhone 13 offers alongside improved battery life over the iPhone 12 Mini! If you miss the times when smartphones would easily fit into your pocket yet don’t want to go back to a Nokia, the iPhone 13 Mini was clearly made for you. According to PC Mag, the iPhone 13 Mini includes a 5.4-inch OLED display with a 2,340-by-1,080-pixel resolution alongside all the fantastic camera features bundled with the standard iPhone 13. It’s everything awesome about iPhone, just smaller. What else is there left to say?

For: Those that want the best iPhone, just smaller.

Available in: Pink, Blue, Black,Starlight and Red

Storage: 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.

iPhone 13 Mini Pink

iPhone The Professional

They call it the most “Pro” iPhone ever, and we couldn’t agree more. The iPhone 13 Pro really brings the goods to the table, offering a leap like no other for the iPhone with its inclusion of wait for it… a 120Hz refresh rate! Yes, we’ll finally be seeing a refresh rate above 60Hz in an iPhone as ProMotion makes the iPhone 13 Pro smoother than butter. It’s a literal game-changer as gaming and multitasking will be slicker than ever before, plus when combined with the Super Retina 6.1-inch XDR display with a gorgeous 2532‑by‑1170-pixel resolution at 460 PPI, it’s hard not to be excited! The video editor within you will also be giddy with excitement as you can meticulously edit videos in ProRes and Dolby Vision, allowing quick and easy high-quality video creation. There’s quite a bit to love about the iPhone 13 Pro’s Macro Camera capabilities as well, as there’s a redesigned lens and powerful autofocus system, which allows the Ultra-Wide camera to focus at 2 centimetres according to Apple. We predict the iPhone 13 Pro may not be the best for curing your Instagram addiction...

For: Those that really love the tiny details plus some extra horsepower.

Available in: Graphite, Gold, Silver, and Sierra Blue.

Storage: 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB.

Our Pick: $106.63 total per month with Vodafone over 36 months. Unlimited data at 80GB max speed and unlimited calls/texts, 512GB storage. Available at our stores.

Maximum Horsepower

The iPhone 13 Pro Max really wants to outclass every other smartphone, and it’s not hard to see why. In short, it’s everything the iPhone 13 Pro is but just bigger and better. The 6.7-inch Super Retina Display with a mesmerizing 2778‑by‑1284-pixel resolution is amazing in every way. This iPhone truly earns the Max in its name by offering monstrous battery life alongside a 1TB storage option which is extremely handy with all the high-quality videos you’ll be shooting and editing! For those of you that want the best offering of the iPhone 13, there’s no reason not to get the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Just like the iPhone 13 Pro, all the camera capabilities alongside ProMotion is here to truly blow your mind. If you’re the type that likes to take it to the max, you really can’t go wrong with the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
