While there is no iPhone 14 Mini this year, and Apple likely won’t bring back the model in the near future, the iPhone 13 Mini is still alive and well. In fact, you can head over to any Apple store (or online) and snag the company’s smallest kept secret today.
For the new price of $599, the iPhone 13 Mini comes with the same A15 Bionic processor as last year’s 13 Pro and this year’s iPhone 14, as well as Face ID, 5G, wireless charging, and the 2021 ensemble of cameras. If you do find yourself taking advantage of the dual 12MP rear cameras, the base storage of 128GB (upgradeable up to 512GB) should suffice for your creative needs.
The iPhone SE (2022) is the other contender as far as mini iPhones go, but its outdated design makes the iPhone 13 Mini the more practical choice in the modern age of digital consumption. Speak of which, there are some obvious drawbacks to the smaller form factor like battery life, display quality, and multitasking. But if you can shoulder the three, then the iPhone 13 Mini is the best mini iPhone to date.
