IPhone 13 Pro Max Review
Design and display
6.7 inch Super Retina XDR OLED, 2778 x 1284 resolution (458 ppi), max brightness 1200 nits

In this new phone, you can choose between multiple colors such as beautiful blue or shiny silver
Or the distinctive gold, the size of the phone here is heavy compared to other phones of the same category. It comes in a size of 240 g of steel, which is characterized by its resistance to rust. One of the features of the phone is also that it comes with three lenses for the camera raised in a square to the left of the phone. due to the larger size of the phone itself, the setup doesn’t look as dominant as on the iPhone 13 – although they’re the identical size on both devices – but it’s still larger and more prominent than those on the previous iPhone 12 Pro Max. If you’re upgrading, you may need a replacement case as a result.
These subtle changes mean that the iPhone 13 Pro Max incorporates a design as durable and as heavy as ever – complete with water and dirt resistance (up to IP68) – and somewhat “blunt” in its design. No smooth edges, no weird details to draw in annoying consumers. just like the company’s MacBook Pro range, it’s about getting the task through with little room for any price else.
Up front, the large change is that the notch – which punches through the screen – is now much narrower. it has been around since the iPhone X, and it hasn’t been discontinued for a punch-hole or under-display camera yet, because it still houses a bunch of sensors (including Face ID) additionally to the front camera. The new design offers more room for a full-screen experience, but the space on either side of it hasn’t been fully taken advantage of by iOS 15′ 2021 – the icons are simply bigger rather than the newly discovered space being better used.
It’s definitely a smoother experience, though some people can’t see the advantages of Ultra-HD over HD until it’s recognized, some probably won’t even notice the upgrade they enjoy.
We’re within the Pro territory here and Apple is clearly targeting display for those that care about this stuff, but we won’t help feeling like we’d like Apple Pencil support, especially given the screen size here. It just screams for you to require notes.

A15 Bionic processor
5G and Wi-Fi 6
A flagship phone requires a flagship processor – and therefore the iPhone 13 Pro Max has the A15 Bionic. it is the company’s fastest processor so far – as is typical of Apple’s annual updates – although the improvements to the A14 chip found within the 12 Pro Max aren’t as discovery as you may imagine.
Benchmark results suggest it’s about 15 percent faster than the previous generation, and while we’re all for more speed and power, we do not expect to note a difference within the same way we have seen in previous upgrades.
No matter how the processor conflicts with previous models, it’s still fast. Apps load without you even considering it, photos and videos are processed without really having to attend, and you will not see it making a fuss about whatever task you throw its way.
Storage sizes see options stretch to 1TB, and also the move is clearly aimed toward the videographer keen to require advantage of latest recording features just like the yet-to-be-released ProRes (Apple’s high-quality video compression format). These snapshots need about 6GB for a 1-minute snapshot, which is certain to top off your cupboard space quickly. Fast, in fact, if you choose for the 128GB model, Apple won’t allow you to shoot ProRes in 4K.

ProRes support ‘coming soon’
There are three main lenses on the rear, packed next to a LiDAR sensor and flash unit. All three sensors offer 12MP resolution, even as before, but where things differ from the iPhone 12 Pro Max is that the introduction of latest lenses and a replacement macro shooting mode.
The standard ultra-wide, standard wide, and tele zoom deliver a complete of 6x — visually, the phone is simply 3x — and as we’ve come to expect from the iPhone range, everything runs as smoothly as possible.
The only noticeable switch between standard mode and macro mode happens once you get near an issue – which might be quite annoying initially. What are often even more frustrating is that at a particular distance the auto switch can get confused, causing the camera to constantly try and switch between the 2 in an endless loop.
We’ve found that the newly improved apertures – which are slightly wider than before, which implies more light can get in – translate to a faster shutter response, which can help reduce image blur. this is often very true in low-light conditions, but since Night mode is now available on all three lenses, including ultra-wide lenses for the primary time, our night test shots yielded some amazing results.
When looking at those problems, which are not major problems, but rather minor problems with regard to the micro-mode, the iPhone 13 Pro Max makes it excellent in photography, and it is one of the strengths that Apple possesses.
The results are accurate to mention the smallest amount, but look carefully and that they are noticeable. The catch is that when you apply you cannot remove or add retroactively, but if you are the quite photographer who wants to use a method to whatever you’re taking in, it works rather well. it is a shame that Apple hasn’t yet applied the identical approach to cropping images beyond 1:1 square, 4:3 or 16:9 yet. We just like the 3:2 ratio option that enables us to simulate 35mm film, as an example.
