Our official battery test runs with many popular apps, games and services on timed cycles until the battery completely depletes, and is given a standby time between cycles to track consumption in the background. Screen brightness and network settings are standardized so that we can draw a parallel between all the models that have passed through our benches.

The apps present in the cycles, and their certain execution times per cycle, are:

  • 6 minutes of use (each) — WhatsApp, YouTube, Gallery (offline video), Spotify, Apple Music (offline music), and Chrome;
  • 1 minute (each) — Pokémon Go, Asphalt 8, Subway Surfers, Candy Crush, Modern Combat 5, and Injustice;
  • 4 minutes of 3G/4G calls;
  • 2 minutes of use (each) — Facebook, Gmail and GMaps


After our tests with the iPhone 13 mini, we got the following results:

  • It took 19 hours and 49 minutes for the device to turn off;
  • The screen remained on for 9 hours and 36 minutes in the period;
  • We performed 14 complete test cycles, including:
    • 84 minutes of browsing on Chrome;
    • 420 minutes of WhatsApp, Spotify, PowerAmp, MX Player and YouTube (84 minutes each);
    • 84 minutes of games (Pokémon Go, Subway Surfers, Candy Crush, Injustice, Modern Combat 5 and Asphalt 8);
    • 84 minutes from Facebook, Gmail and Google Maps (28 minutes each);
    • 56 minutes of voice calls via 3G/4G;
  • The most consumed app was YouTube.


The iPhone 13 mini has one-off changes from its predecessor, including better cameras, more powerful hardware, and finally a considerably larger battery. With this, the new model was able to easily surpass the autonomy of its predecessor, finally establishing itself as an interesting option for those who want a powerful and compact model, but do not want to give up autonomy capable of at least withstanding a whole day of use. .

It doesn’t reach the level of its Pro model or rivals in the Galaxy S21 line, but it already manages to surpass another compact in the Android world: the Zenfone 8. With that, those interested in the iPhone 13 mini but fearing the weak autonomy of the previous model you can be unconcerned, because even though it doesn’t have great autonomy, it already manages to withstand a very reasonable time away from takings.
