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.”

What the Critics Are Saying...


Out of all the smartphones we’ve tested, the iPhone 13 Pro Max simply has the best camera, screen, and battery life, and so it’s very easy to recommend. But bear in mind that its size and weight make it awkward to handle, and the crushing cost means that it’s certainly no bargain even if it is the b...

The Guardian

The iPhone 13 Pro Max is a beast with Apple’s biggest screen, longest battery life and highest price. There aren’t many phones that can last more than 48 hours on a charge, particularly with top-class chips, cameras, a 120Hz screen and upwards of six years of software support. But all that size and...

What Hi-Fi

The iPhone 13 Pro Max isn’t a huge upgrade on its predecessor, but it is meaningfully better in a few ways, most notably the battery and camera. Just as important to us is that the screen is even better than before, and the built-in speakers have been improved, too. That said, the standard iPhone 13...

Tech Advisor

The iPhone 13 Pro Max offers the best battery of any iPhone to date, but the lack of differences between it and the more affordable iPhone 13 Pro - including ProMotion tech and enhanced cameras - make it hard to recommend to most.

All of the above only helps to confirm the conclusions that here is a mobile that beats pretty much everything on the market, both in terms of camera, screen and overall user experience. About the iPhone 13 Pro Max, it can be added that it offers even longer battery life, just as the screen area is...
