The iPhone 13 Pro Max – everything you need to know

The iPhone 13 Pro Max – everything you need to know

Released just over a year ago, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is smart, sleek and a favorite among tech reviewers. So what do you need to know about Apple’s innovative smartphone – and what’s the difference between the Pro and the Pro Max?

Putting the iPhone 13 Pro Max in the spotlight

The iPhone 13 Pro Max received near-universal acclaim on its release in September 2021, not least thanks to its crystal-clear cameras, exceptional display, ultra-fast responsiveness and a battery life worth bragging about. The phone’s versatility is well documented, too. Take the iPhone 13 Pro Max with 512GB storage and Dual SIM , for example: the Dual SIM feature allows you to have two active eSIMs or a nano-SIM and an eSIM, and you have enough space on the phone to store approximately 64,000 photos, 1,200 videos and 400 applications. That’s on top of all the basic functions you’ve come to expect from a top-end iPhone: 5G connectivity, a high-performance processor (the Apple A15 Bionic), and 6GB of memory. Quite the powerful machine.

Under the hood

Let’s take a closer look at what the iPhone 13 Pro Max has to offer – and why it lives up to the hype.


The crowning glory of the iPhone 13 Pro Max is its cameras. With three 12-megapixel rear cameras and a 12-megapixel front camera, you can take stunning photos and video that have to be seen to be believed. Choose between Wide, Ultra Wide and Telephoto lens settings, activate Night Mode in low-light environments and try out the Portrait Lighting and Photographic Styles (including macrophotography) features at your leisure. This handset also comes with Apple ProRAW, allowing for superior image processing. All in all, the iPhone 13 Pro Max camera suite contains everything you need to take studio-worthy photographs.

Cinematic mode

This is a gem of a feature. Cinematic mode enables you to record videos with a shallow depth of field and add focus transitions to your recordings. The result: a video that’s fit to show on the big screen. It’s perfect for creating social media content, home videos and TED-style talks that have a high-quality look and feel.


Put simply, the iPhone 13 Pro Max screen size is massive: the OLED display is 6.7 inches (approx. 17 centimeters) in size and has a 120Hz refresh rate as well as a higher maximum brightness and smaller notch than previous models. This makes it ideal for watching video content, editing photos, reading texts, holding video calls and more.


The battery for the iPhone 13 Pro Max has been beefed up considerably compared to its predecessors – in fact, it’s the best battery life ever offered by an iPhone. Based on standard use, the Pro Max can last well over a day and a half before it needs to be charged, while intensive use – measured as continuous 5G usage at 150 nits of screen brightness – clocks in at 12+ hours. That’s mighty impressive for such a powerful phone, and it means you’ll be able to get through a work day with no issues.

The iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max: what’s the difference?

The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max share a number of similar features, not least in terms of cameras, display, performance and storage, but there are two key differences that could influence your decision as to which model is right for you. The iPhone 13 Pro has a smaller screen, at 6.1 inches (approx. 15.5 cm), and a shorter battery life, at 11 hours 30 minutes when used intensively – though this is still very good compared to other models. All in all, both the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are excellent choices for your next smartphone.

Ready to make an impact: the iPhone 13 colors

The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max come in five fantastic finishes: Sierra Blue, Graphite, Gold, Silver and Alpine Green. The latter is a standout from a technological point of view: Apple created the effect by applying multiple layers of nanometer-scale metallic ceramics across the surface. The matte back and glossy frame of the Pro and Pro Max put the finishes center stage, allowing their quality to speak for itself.
