The "1-Minute" Review


The decision between the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max essentially comes down to screen size and battery life. If you want the best of both -- and don't mind the price tag -- the Pro Max is the ultimate 2021 iPhone model.

The iPhone 13 Pro Max is the largest in the 2021 line of iPhone models and carries very similar specs to the slightly smaller iPhone 13 Pro.

What’s The Same?

  • 120Hz adaptive refresh rate
  • A15 Bionic chipset
  • iOS 15
  • Cinematic mode
  • Super Retina XDR OLED display
  • Tri-lens camera

What’s Different

  • Bigger phone
  • 6.7-inch display
  • Improved battery

The extra screen real estate on the iPhone 13 Pro Max might be of benefit to gamers, those videographers wanting to take full advantage of the new cinematic mode, or for those who like to binge-watch shows and movies via streaming services on the go.

While Apple does not release the actual battery capacity of its phones, reviewers reported one or two hours more of use between charges with the iPhone 13 Pro Max than the smaller Pro model as well.

Everything else is basically identical. You can read more about what to expect in our iPhone 13 Pro review!

Tom’s Guide says, “The winner of the iPhone 13 Pro vs iPhone 13 Pro Max fight comes down to what you're looking for in your next phone. If you want a bigger display and longer battery life, our money is on the Pro Max despite the higher price.”

Apple designs its own hardware, its own chipset, its operating system, and many of its applications, with each piece designed to work with the others. This design optimization means that both the iPhone 13 Pro Max and 12 Pro Max drain their batteries less when in use than many other devices. Now tha...

The iPhone 13 Pro Max has a lot going for it as a phone, a phablet and an everyday companion that can manage almost every aspect of your life.

The iPhone 13 Pro Max is clearly the best phone out there. But should everyone buy this phone? No. That’s not because the Pro Max has any issues, but because the iPhone 13 itself is so good when it comes to regular users. The Pro is clearly aimed the those who will find use for the better camera, di...

The iPhone 13 Pro Max is everything I want in a big phone. The screen is glorious, the battery life unmatched in the flagship space and the camera exceptional. If you can handle the size, and the price, you won’t regret it.

- Max Parker, TrustedReviews

With all iPhone 13 series devices sharing the same front camera specs and processor, it’s fair to assume the Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max Selfie results are very close to those of the iPhone 13 Pro. We have confirmed this by putting the Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max through the complete DXOMARK Selfie test pro...
