Apple MagSafe Battery Pack: https://amzn.to/3mSHgUz
This is what I use to top up my iPhone 13 mini if the battery gets low during the day. Watch my full hands-on review for more.

Apple Leather Case with MagSafe: https://amzn.to/331Asgh
I like how Apple’s Leather Case fits the iPhone 13 mini in particular. WIth larger phones, I think the cases look awkward, but it looks just right on the diminutive mini.

Apple Leather Wallet with MagSafe: https://amzn.to/34cZ8CR
The Leather Wallet lets you easily take a couple of cards with you (e.g. credit card and license), and it attaches to the back of your iPhone 13 mini or to a MagSafe-enabled case. I also like how the newer versions now have Find My support built in.

Apple MagSafe Duo Charger: https://amzn.to/3zkSRk0
I only use the MagSafe Duo Charger when on the go. I find it very convenient for charging my watch and iPhone at the same time when traveling.

Moment Multi Threaded Mount: https://amzn.to/347iJV1
This handy little tool allows you to mount your iPhone to a camera rig via MagSafe. It features several 1/4-20 mounts and 3/8 mounts, and allows you to use your iPhone as a monitor for a camera.

  1. Theirs 3 problems no 120hz then u have 5.4 inch screen way to small also smaller battery. This phone should of had 120hz display with at least a 5.6 to 5.7 inch screen would of at least had a battery of 2700 mh instead of 2400 mh

  2. i like 13 mini but 10-12h screen time of the 13 pm is unbeatable (2x more than the mini). having a battery that's able to endure 2 days of moderate usage is amazing. and you can have this by $300 more than the mini. this alone is enough to me, I'm not even talking about the camera or screen.
    And I've been using a 6.7" smartphone since 2018 size is not a problem.

  3. I would have love to see an perfect Mini with
    A Punch Hole Display
    Better Battery life
    & A USB type C

    Which i am pretty sure its never gonna happen so i am buying an iPhone 13 Mini

  4. I love the iPhone 13 Mini. However, I don’t think they need to release a mini every year. It is my guess that iPhone mini users do not expect/look for features that are top of the line, so we don’t update our phone every year. A mini every two years would be just fine.

  5. Of course I would be disappointed if apple doesn’t make a 14 mini and the 13 mini is the last mini iPhone. I have the iPhone 12 mini and I’ve had it since it’s release day back in November I’ve 2020. It’s been a great phone. I do plan on getting the 13 mini if it’s the last one apple makes. People for years wanted a small form factor iPhone but now that it’s here it’s Been shadowed by phone that are absolutely massive. This has made it out to be something that’s the normal these massive phones. The 12 mini and the 13 mini are small iPhones and there battery is small so it doesn’t last like the bigger models. But the one thing they do is charge fast which means your not down for very long.

  6. Yes will be disappointed if we don't see a 14 mini….
    Well I wish and have a high hope that the iPhone 3 SE get the new body which they are currently using that of iPhone 6. Now it's time to get the body of iPhone X or Xs for the SE3. That 5.8' wfor the SE will be great. @Apple i hope you are listening.

  7. I was really impressed by the video quality. Now I know this is what HDR is! 🤣 watching this on my iPhone 13 mini.

  8. I’d easily take the 6s over the 13 mini. It was much more elegant, less clunky, still had the button, and didn’t have the dumb notch. I bought the 13 mini solely because it was the only small option that might last. It’s the first Apple product that has me seriously exploring other brands.

  9. I future-proofed the heck out of my iPhone 13 mini with the biggest storage option. Also I like how an iPhone SE [1st gen.] was in this video as well as that was my favorite phone before this one – I still use the latter phone by the way and can't get myself to stop using it…only thing with the iPhone SE is the battery life but that's not bad but yeah I love these phones!!!

  10. The first 5 seconds of the video couldn’t be more accurate. 13 mini is like the same size even weight of 5s/se 1g. I don’t know which one is better for me, the 13 pro max for battery life or 13 mini for its compact size.

  11. My 512gb iPhone 13 Mini is going to last me 5 years and hopefully by then we’ll have foldables from Apple that start out the size of the mini and expand into a tablet experience.
