This article by Cashify is a definitive guide to iPhone 13 Price and choosing an iPhone 13 series smartphone in 2021. Let’s start from the base to the Pro versions to see if the iPhone 13 is worth it!

Base iPhone 13 Price & Models:

Featuring an A15 Quad-Core chip, the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini outperform the iPhone 12’s Geekbench 5 GPU performance benchmark of around 9100, scoring 10,500 on the same test.

The base models have a screen refresh rate of 60hz, recycled from the iPhone 12. The upgrade from iPhone 12 is that the battery life lasts 2.5 hours longer.

Let’s start with the 13 Mini.

Featuring the new A15 quad-core chip found in both base models, the iPhone 13 Mini features a 5.4 inch Super Retina Display, 5G support, dual rear faux-LiDAR Cameras featuring 4k 60hz video recording and 2x Zoom. 

Claiming 17 Hours of uninterrupted video playback, the 13 Mini has all standardised iPhone 13 series features like Ceramic shield front, ƒ/2.2 aperture lens, water-resistance up to 6 meters for 30 minutes, Face ID, and Apple MagSafe compatibility for wireless fast charging.

Storage capacity choices: 128 GB (For ₹69,990), 256 GB (For ₹79,990), and 512 GB (For ₹99,990).

The 13 Mini is ideal if you care most about high-performance utility and minimalism.

With the A15 quad-core variant, the iPhone 13 features a 6.1 inch Super Retina Display, 5G support, dual rear faux-LiDAR Cameras featuring Dolby 4k 60hz video recording and 2x Zoom. 

Reportedly featuring 19 Hours of uninterrupted video playback, the iPhone 13 has the same features as the iPhone Mini.

Storage versions: 128 GB (For ₹79,990), 256 GB (For ₹89,990), and 512 GB (For ₹109,900).

Pro iPhone 13 Models & Price:

A major distinction between the Pro and base A15 powered iPhone 13 models is the difference in processor cores. While the above two models possess a quad-core GPU, both the 13 Pro and the 13 Pro Max are 5-core. 

The A15 5-core sets an impressive benchmark, racking a GPU score of over 14,000 on Geekbench 5.

Is your device display an important factor when choosing your next iPhone? The 13 Pro models have a screen refresh rate of 120hz (Termed ProMotion by Apple). This is the gold standard for gaming and snappy, responsive UI.

The refresh rate reduces one hour of battery compared to base models but the Pro Models still last 1.5 hours longer than the iPhone 12.

With the A15 5-core variant, the iPhone 13 Pro features a 6.1 inch Super Retina Display with ProMotion, 5G support, triple rear LiDAR Cameras featuring 4k 60hz video recording, Telephoto, and 6x optical zoom. 

Reportedly featuring 22 Hours of uninterrupted video playback, the iPhone 13 Pro has all series 13 features as the base models.

Storage variants: 128 GB (For ₹119,990), 256 GB (For ₹129,990), 512 GB (For ₹149,900), and 1TB (For ₹169,900).

The 13 Pro is the first-ever A15 5-Core Bionic Chip iPhone featuring a cutting-edge Night Camera with LiDAR Telephoto.

iPhone 13 Pro Max – Starting at $1099 or ₹129,900

With the A15 5-Core Bionic Chip, the iPhone 13 Pro Max has the same features as the iPhone 13 Pro. The only distinguishing feature is the larger 6.7 Super Retina display and form factor.

Like the 13 Pro, the Max version has four storage variants.

128 GB (For ₹129,990), 256 GB (For ₹139,990), 512 GB (For ₹159,900), and 1TB (For ₹179,900).

The 13 Pro Max is the biggest style statement from Apple this year. However, it sacrifices battery time to deliver the big-screen experience.

With an upgraded processor and battery, 13 Pro Max is 13 Pro in a larger, beautiful phablet form factor.

The series 13 lineup is a punch above iPhone 12s and totally worth it if you prefer iOS. However, a few Android flagships like Samsung S21and the upcoming Google Pixel ride neck-to-neck in their performance and competitive prices.
