Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max Review

As autumn approaches, the excitement around the premiere of the new iPhones is traditionally growing. In 2021, the iPhone 13 Pro Max attracted the most attention. The new technologies of the Cupertino company are most manifested in it. We have a new display, a new camera, a new processor and new iOS features.


You can easily distinguish the iPhone 13 Pro Max from its predecessor if you notice the model in its new color - Sierra Blue. The smartphone remains huge, keeping its length and width unchanged. It has become a little thicker - 7.7 mm against 7.4 mm in the iPhone 12 Pro Max, and a little heavier - 240 grams against 228 grams.

Given that each iPhone sets new trends in the market next year, the iPhone 13 Pro Max does not offer drastic changes. You will like everything in it - from the case, through the display, the camera and Face ID. His vision screams a flagship from afar.

The user has several colors of the body - sky blue, silver, gold and graphite.


iPhone 13 Pro Max comes with an OLED display with a diagonal of 6.7 inches, a resolution of 2778x1284 pixels and the name Super Retina XDR. The picture refresh rate is 120 Hz. The screen is smooth, smooth, a real delight, no matter what content you view on it.


Using the new Bionic chip, the smartphone works even faster. There are no revolutionary changes in it, but productivity and energy efficiency growth has been achieved. The platform consists of two production Avalanche cores with a frequency of up to 3.24 GHz and 6 efficient Blizzard cores with a frequency of 2.0 GHz. We know that the graphics subsystem is equipped with 5 cores. The neuroprocessor has been doubled - from 16 to 32 MP.

iPhone 13 Pro Max is available in four modifications. The RAM in any case is 6 GB. The storage can be 128, 256, 512 GB and 1 TB. If you intend to shoot a lot and make videos in ProRes, we recommend that you choose a modification with more memory. There is no possibility to use external memory.

The operating system is another reason to choose the iPhone 13 Pro Max. In it we see an updated company messenger FaceTime. You can now share your screen and send a chat invitation, which can also benefit Android and Windows users.

SharePlay will win you over with the ability to watch videos or listen to music with someone else.


In the iPhone 13 Pro Max you will not find radically different cameras, which is typical of Apple's policy. We still see changes. The location of the cameras is different.

The rear camera is quadruple, three of them are 12-megapixel. The fourth module is TOF 3D LiDAR scanner, whose task is to measure the depth. The wide-angle camera remains the same as in the previous generation. At the same time, the camera is new, it has three times the optical zoom.

Although the iPhone does not have a special camera for macro photography, this will not prevent you from taking quality shots in close-up. In macro mode, the device switches only.

The situation is similar with the night shooting mode. It is not in a separate category. It is activated when the smartphone considers that it does not have enough light. You can also turn the mode on / off yourself.

Video capture is available in up to 4K resolution at up to 60 frames per second. Digital stabilization works in all cases. It is possible to take photos in HDR format with immediate conversion to Dolby Vision HDR.

Autonomous work

It is currently known that the battery life of the iPhone 13 Pro Max is at the flagship level. 28 hours of continuous video watching have been announced, which is a few hours higher than the predecessor's achievement.

There is no power supply in the set. It is preferable to buy one for fast charging.

iPhone 13 Pro Max supports wired charging with power up to 27W and wireless, MagSafe, up to 15W. If you recharge your smartphone with a fully discharged battery, MagSafe will charge it up to 10% in two and a half hours.


There is no doubt that the iPhone 13 Pro Max is an excitingly good smartphone. He is a worthy representative of the Apple family. It will win you over with its powerful energy efficient platform, perfect screen and flawless design. It is also protected against moisture and dust according to the IP68 standard, has wonderful cameras and you will be fascinated by the quality of the videos. Autonomous work complements the good impression.

As a disadvantage we can point out the dimensions of the device and the lack of headphones and charger in the kit. Face ID does not work when you are wearing a mask and there is no fingerprint scanner.
