If there is anyone following this thread who plans on getting the iPhone 13 regular or 13 mini, I'd be curious to hear your experiences since those phones use the wide lens/sensor from last year's 12 Pro Max.

I do have samples from the 12mini and 13mini 1x Wide and .5 UltraWide cameras. Here they are. My impression is that the 13mini photos do have a bit more "pop" but the sharpness appears to be the similar. I also took sample shots from the iPhone 13, but since they are identical to the 13mini, I won't post them here.

Off-topic observation: The screen on the 13mini is a bit brighter than the 12mini (at max brightness with TrueTone, Auto Brightness etc turned off), but to my eyes it is not a big difference.

12mini 1x

13mini 1x

12mini .5x

13mini .5x
