These features are key for people looking for a premium smartphone. But before we get into these features, we should know about the difference between these two smartphones.
This iPhone 13 Pro Max review will help you make the decision. Moreover, we will also cover the pros and cons of both models.
The iPhone 13 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch screen with a resolution of 2778 x 1284 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The phone’s pixel density is 458 ppi.
It uses Super Retina XDR OLED technology, which can reproduce 16,777,216 colors.
The screen is protected by fingerprint-resistant glass and an oleophobic coating, and was introduced on September 14, 2021.
In addition to its larger screen, the iPhone 13 Pro Max also features a smaller notch. Although both phones offer the same high-quality camera, the Max’s display is larger.
Compared to its smaller counterpart, the iPhone 13 Pro is more comfortable to hold in one hand. The larger display also provides a larger keyboard. It makes it easier to access the Control Center, which is located at the top of the screen.
Both the iPhone 13 mini and the iPhone 13 Pro Max are small, but both phones offer large screens. The smaller phone is easier to use and carries a case that improves the ergonomics.
The larger screen also means that it has a longer battery life and more powerful cameras. But it’s also heavier, and you might want to get a case. It has a 5.4-inch diagonal screen, which is slightly larger than the iPhone 13 mini.
The iPhone 13 Pro Max also has a larger battery and a better camera. The screen is wider and taller, and the camera has an optical zoom.
The phone also supports ProMotion, Apple’s variable-refresh-rate screen technology. If you need an even bigger screen, go for the 13 Pro Max. If you’re not a pro photographer, opt for the smaller one. It’s worth the difference.
Apple has been slow to catch on to new technology, but the bigger screen on the iPhone 13 Pro Max makes up for it.
The Pro Max also has a higher refresh rate than the iPhone 13 Pro, and can adjust to achieve a smoother display.
But it’s worth mentioning that Apple doesn’t have the same 120 Hz display that Xiaomi and OnePlus have. But it’s still a good sign.
Longer battery life
The new iPhone 13 Pro Max offers a longer battery life than its predecessors. The new device has an overall battery capacity of 4,352 mAh, which is nearly 18 percent larger than the previous model.
This is good news for consumers who use their phones for extended periods of time. Compared to the iPhone XS Max, the new model should give you around 2.5 more hours of usage.
In addition to the battery life, other improvements to this phone’s design and performance have helped it achieve that.
In addition to a longer battery life, the new iPhone 13 Pro Max has a bigger screen than its predecessor. The screen is so large that it encourages users to use it for extended periods.
Despite the larger size and higher price, this device is still an excellent battery performer, as the refresh rate can be varied by varying the refresh rate.
The iPhone 13 Pro Max is also capable of reaching 10Hz refresh rates when scrolling and reading, which means that it should last you more than 1.5 hours.
The biggest improvement to the 13 Pro Max’s battery life comes from its new low-power display, a new chip, and a larger battery.
While the iPhone 13 mini still offers an excellent battery life, it is less than half as long as the iPhone 12 Mini. The iPhone 13 Pro Max’s battery lasts about 1.5 hours longer than its predecessor.
This difference can be attributed to the larger battery and the more power-efficient components inside.
Another way to improve battery life on the iPhone 13 Pro Max is to turn off Raise to Wake. You can find the settings for Raise to Wake in Settings > Display & Brightness.
Also, enabling the dark interface is a useful way to improve battery life. The dark interface uses less energy than the usual white screen and makes the pixels more visible.
Then, you can select “Dark” under Display & Brightness.
Apple’s improved camera in the iPhone 13 Pro Max is another significant change to the device.
The new sensor, coupled with updated hardware and software, can capture more light and enhance details for better photos and videos.
These changes are crucial in helping the iPhone 13 stand out from its competitors. The hardware lets in more light and allows more details to be captured, while the software intelligently detects the scene to capture the best shot.
The new camera also comes with a larger F1.8 aperture, which promises exceptional low-light capabilities.
As compared to the camera on the iPhone 12 Pro Max, the iPhone 13 Pro Max’s camera performs 92% better than its predecessor.
The new camera also boasts an improved autofocus system that allows you to shoot in dedicated macro mode.
Previously, iPhone models did not allow close-up shots, but the improved camera will allow you to focus as near as two centimeters away from your subject.
The iPhone 13 Pro Max and mini both feature an upgraded camera. Compared to their predecessors, the 13 Pro Max and mini have the same camera system, which is a significant improvement.
The camera module on the 13 Pro Max is larger and more advanced than the camera on the iPhone 12 Pro, and the screen is faster and wider than the iPhone 12.
In addition to the improved camera, the iPhone 13 Pro offers dual and triple lenses. The ultrawide lens can work to calculate depth.
The 13 Pro Max has a built-in LiDAR sensor, which helps it detect objects in low light. The camera also comes with several modes for video and still photos, which can make post-production work easier.
Ultimately, the camera in the iPhone 13 Pro Max can produce stunning photos and videos.
A three-lens camera system is one of the most notable improvements to the camera on the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The camera on the 13 Pro and Max features an f/2.8 Telephoto lens and an f/1.8 Ultra Wide lens. The Wide lens provides an improved image quality over the iPhone 13 model and is capable of capturing 92 percent more light.
The Ultra Wide lens gives you the ability to capture images in even higher detail.
The iPhone 13 Pro Max has an impressive TrueTone color management feature, which works by default.
The new display technology measures ambient light and automatically adjusts its display to render white tones in the right colors.
Apple’s latest Pro Max manages to make the display’s white point adapt to the illuminant, a feature Samsung’s display lacks.
The 13 Pro Max also does a better job at managing flicker, aliasing, and other artifacts than the Samsung device.
If you’re concerned about the color of your screen, you can switch off True Tone in Settings. If you want to disable True Tone, tap the ‘disable’ button.
If you have True Tone enabled, you can toggle it on and off in the Display & Brightness settings. You’ll find the switch under “Display & Brightness” in the Control Center.
This feature is available in every color of the iPhone, but only if the device supports it.
Using True Tone is optional. It’s available for iPhones with LCD or OLED screens. You can turn on and off the feature by tapping the ‘Tone’ icon in Control Center.
If you’ve disabled True Tone, you can switch it back on again.
True Tone is similar to Night Shift, which can alter the brightness of the display. Its use can help you to see colors in different environments more accurately.
The True Tone feature allows the device to constantly assess the ambient light. It automatically adjusts the display to match the brightness of the surrounding area.
This feature can be triggered by changing the time of day or by manually setting the colour temperature. You can also set the TrueTone color temperature manually by touching the Night Shift slider.
However, the 13 Pro Max does not have a manual setting for colour temperature.
With this new feature, the iPhone 13 Pro Max boasts superior color fidelity over its predecessor. Its ‘A+’ Display Performance Rating means that the largest error of color is less than 1.0 JNCD.
Moreover, TrueTone color on the Pro Max is visually indistinguishable from perfect. It receives all green ratings in all DisplayMate lab tests, ensuring that its display delivers a consistent, top-tier performance.
