In addition to the more cheap iPhone 13Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, Apple introduced the iPhone 13Pro and iPhone 13, Pro Max, on September 14th as its newest high-end pro-level flagship iPhones. When it comes to smartphones, individuals who seek a lot of features and great cameras will love the new iPhone 13 models.
What’s New In iPhone 13 Pro And Pro Max
When it comes to screen size, the iPhone 13Pro is an upgrade over the iPhone 12 Pro, while the iPhone 13 Pro Max comes in at 6.7 inches to replace the iPhone 12. With flat sides, a stainless steel frame, a textured matte glass back, and a 0.1mm increase in thickness, the new iPhone 13Pro models seem nearly identical to the iPhone 12 Pro models (7.65mm). Silver, gold, sierra blue, and graphite are the color options for the iPhone 13Pro.
Both new iPads have OLED Super Retina XDR Displays with adaptive refresh rates ranging from 10Hz to 120Hz, similar to the iPad Pro models. These displays utilize ProMotion technology. Outdoors, the screens are up to 25% brighter than indoors. According to Apple’s specifications, the iPhone 13Pro comes in at 2532×1170 pixels per inch, while the iPhone 13Pro Max measures out to be 458 pixels per inch in size.
True Tone, Wide Color, and Haptic Touch all come standard on both iPhones, allowing the display’s color temperature to be adjusted in real-time to ambient light. TrueDepth front cameras have been improved, and the Face ID notch has been reduced in size to free up more space. The Ceramic Shield cover glass on the iPhone 13Pro and 13 Pro Max is enhanced with nano-ceramic crystals, much like on previous year’s models. For 30 minutes, the new iPhones can be submerged in water up to six meters deep thanks to IP68 water and dust protection.
The latest iPhones are equipped with an improved A15 Bionic chip. It has a 6-core CPU with two performance cores and four efficiency cores, as well as a 5-core graphics processing unit (GPU), which is one more GPU core than the iPhone 13 models have. An additional 16-core Neural Engine has been added. The 5-core GPU provides graphics performance that is 50% quicker than any other smartphone CPU currently available.
Rear-facing cameras now have an f/2.8 Telephoto lens as well as an f/1.5 Wide and f/1.8 Ultra-Wide lenses.
The Ultra-Wide lens lets in 92% more light for greater low-light performance, while the Wide lens lets in 2.2x more light and has the biggest sensor yet in an iPhone.
This camera’s 77mm Telephoto lens has a 3x optical zoom, up from the 12 Pro Max’s 2.5x zoom. It also has a 6x optical zoom range thanks to the Ultra Wide lens, and it supports 15x digital zoom. On the other hand, the iPhone 13 and 13 mini don’t come with a LiDAR Scanner. This year’s camera settings are the same for the Pro and Pro Max versions, therefore there are no variations between them.
Cinematic Mode uses rack focus to blur the background and create movie-quality depth effects as well as the usual Portrait, Night, and Time-Lapse modes on the new iPhone 13Pro models, which are all included with a new camera function called Cinematic Field of View.
The iPhone camera app’s cinematic mode uses Dolby HDR and lets you control the depth of field and blur.
Up to 60 fps 4K video recording is also possible.
Smart HDR 4 Result
There are several new features in Smart HDR 4, including the ability to recognize up to four persons in a shot and optimize contrast, lighting, and skin tones for each of them. Deep Fusion is also included, and it operates in low-light situations to bring out texture and fine detail.
Using Photographic Styles, you can deliberately muffle or raise the vibrancy of colors without affecting the skin tones in your images. Vibrant, Rich Contrast, Warm, and Cool tones are available, as well as Tone and Warmth control for fine-tuning and personalization.
Only the triple-lens camera system has several Pro-only photographic capabilities, such as macro photography and videography for close-up macro shots with a focus distance of 2cm, Night Mode support for the Telephoto lens, Night Mode portraits that require the LiDAR Scanner and ProRes video recording, which allows users to record 4K ProRes video at 30 frames per second. Later this year, Apple will introduce the ProRes video.
Latest Features In iPhone 13 Pro And Pro Max
After using rounded edges since the iPhone 6, Apple introduced a flat-sided design with squared-off corners on the iPhone 12. This style is reminiscent of the iPhone 4 and 5 and complements the iPad Pro. There isn’t much difference in appearance between the iPhone 13 and its predecessor, the iPhone 12, thanks to Apple utilizing the same flat-edged design across the board. Because it’s a design that Apple has already employed, the flat-edged look seems both futuristic and familiar at the same time.
This year’s models of the iPhone 13Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max have all-glass fronts and backs, with a surgical-grade stainless steel frame between them. For a seamless appearance, Apple tints the back glass the same color as the stainless steel frame.
For charging, there is a Lightning port on the bottom of the iPhone 13 Pro models, as well as speaker holes and microphones. Sim card slots are found on the left side of most mobile phones.
The rear of the iPhone 13Pro model has a square camera bump and a triple-lens camera system. The camera bumps on the iPhone 13Pro and Pro Max are larger than on the iPhone 12 Pro models, with the iPhone 13Pro showing the biggest difference in size.
While all iPhone 13Pro versions will come in either 6.1 or 6.7 inches, the iPhone 13 Pro Max at 6.7 inches is Apple’s largest smartphone to date. The iPhone 13 and 13 Plus are both thicker and heavier than the iPhone 12 Plus versions.
- With dimensions of 146.8mm in height, 2.82inch width, and 7.65mm thickness,
- The iPhone 13 Pro is the smaller of the two at 6.33in tall, 3.07in broad, and 0.30in thick (7.65mm thick) (7.65mm).
- iPhone 13 Pro weighs 204 grams and weighs 8.46 ounces (240 grams);
- iPhone 13 Pro Max weighs 204 grams.
Colors Of iPhone 13 Pro And Pro Max
The colors available for the new iPhone 13 Pro versions are:
- Sierra blue.
The Pacific Blue tint from the previous year has been replaced by Sierra Blue, a somewhat lighter tone of blue.
Resilience to Water
The iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Max are both water-resistant thanks to their IP68 certification. As with the iPhone 12 Pro versions, the phones can survive being submerged up to six meters (19.7 feet) for 30 minutes.
The IP68 number has a 6 for dust resistance and an 8 for water resistance (which indicates the iPhone 13 Pro can withstand dirt, dust, and other particulates). The dust resistance rating of IP6x is the highest currently available.
iPhone 13 Pro is splash and rain resistant thanks to the IP68 classification, although intentional water exposure should be avoided if at all feasible with this device.
Although water and dust resistance is a feature built into the iPhone, Apple says that it can wear out over time due to normal use and use. Due to the fact that Apple’s warranty does not cover liquid damage, you should exercise extreme caution when using your iPhone or iPad near liquids.
Display Of iPhone 13 Pro And Pro Max
The OLED Super Retina XDR display on all iPhone 13 variants is flexible and stretches into the device’s chassis. HDR photographs, videos, TV shows, and movies have a peak brightness of 1200 nits and a contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1 for darker blacks and brighter whites. The maximum brightness of the iPhone 13 Pro models is often 1000 nits, whereas the normal iPhone 13 models typically have an 800 nit display. According to Apple, the screen is now 25% brighter when used outside.
iPhone 13 Pro
- A resolution of 2532 x 1170 pixels per inch is found in the iPhone 13 Pro 6.1-inch model,
iPhone 13Pro Max
- While the iPhone 13 Pro Max 6.7-inch model has a resolution of 2778 x 1284 pixels per inch.
True Tone technology adapts the display’s white balance to the surrounding illumination for a paper-like viewing experience that’s easy on the eyes. Oleophobic coating protects against fingerprints, and Haptic Touch is supported, giving users haptic feedback as they interact with the display.
More rounded Notch
The notch on the new iPhones is 20% less than the one on previous models, thanks to Apple’s efforts.
The new notch on the iPhone 13 is slightly taller than the previous one, according to side-by-side comparisons of the iPhone 12 and 13.
Despite Apple’s decision to make the notch smaller to provide more screen real estate, iOS does not appear to be making use of the new space. The larger iPhone 13 Pro Max has adequate space for a battery percentage display on the right side of the notch, although this is an optional display feature.
The low-power display backlighting on the iPhone 13 Pro models has allowed Apple to use ProMotion for the first time. ProMotion’s adaptive refresh rates range from 10Hz to 120Hz, and it was first debuted in the iPad Pro in 2018. Depending on what’s on the screen, the display’s refresh rate shifts accordingly. While the iPhone uses a lower refresh rate when viewing a static webpage, it uses a greater 120Hz refresh rate whether you’re playing a game, watching a movie, or scrolling through the material. As a result of ProMotion technology, the screen scrolling speed can be matched.
Ceramic Protective Coat
iPhone 13 models will continue to feature the “Ceramic Shield” bumper, which protects against scratches and dings better. Nano-ceramic crystals are infused into the glass to create the Ceramic Shield display cover. The ceramic crystals used in the display were tinkered with to achieve the best balance of clarity and robustness. A dual-ion exchange technique ensures that Ceramic Shield protects against scratches and everyday wear and tear better than any smartphone glass, according to Apple.
Bionic Chip A15
Apple’s new A15 chip, included in the iPhone 13 and later models, provides better performance and efficiency than the A14 chip found in the iPhone 12. There are two performance cores and four efficiency cores in Apple’s A15 CPU in the iPhone 13 Pro models, making it the “world’s fastest smartphone chip”.
In comparison to the normal iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max’s A15 CPU has a 5-core GPU, one more core than the standard iPhone 13. Using Geekbench benchmarks, it was found that the iPhone 13 Pro’s GPU outperforms the iPhone 12 Pro’s GPU by up to 50%. Apple’s iPhone 13 models, on the other hand, have a 15% improvement in graphics performance.
It is estimated that single-core performance is 10% quicker and multi-core performance is approximately 18% faster than that of the iPhone 12 models.
Cinematic Mode Smart HDR4
Cinematic Mode and Smart HDR 4 are also powered by the 16-core Neural Engine, which can do up to 15.8 trillion operations per second.
- The iPhone 13 Pro comes with 6GB of RAM
- Whereas, the iPhone 13 comes with 4GB of RAM.
The difference is obvious. The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro had 4GB and 6GB of RAM, respectively, and that hasn’t changed with the iPhone 13.
It is now possible to order the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max with up to 1TB of storage, which is a new maximum for the iPhone 13.
Face ID and TrueDepth Cameras
Face ID, Apple’s facial recognition feature, is used for biometric authentication on the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Max.
The TrueDepth camera system in the display notch, which is smaller this year, houses Face ID components. iOS operations that need Face ID use it to unlock the iPhone, gain access to passcode-protected apps, confirm app purchases, and authenticate Apple Pay payments. Face ID is integrated throughout iOS.
Face ID utilizes sensors and cameras to accomplish its goals. An infrared camera reads the scan from a Dot Projector, which projects more than 30,000 infrared dots onto the skin’s surface to create a 3D facial scan that maps the curves and planes of each face.
The A15 chip receives the facial depth map and converts it into a mathematical model that the iPhone employs to verify identity. As long as you don’t cover your face with anything else, Face ID will work in low-light and low-contrast situations.
Unlock With Apple Watch
There is an “Unlock with Apple Watch” feature for face masks that do not work with Face ID. Using Apple Watch as a secondary authentication mechanism to unlock an iPhone while wearing a mask is possible using Unlock with Apple Watch. App Store or Apple Pay purchases cannot be authenticated, and apps requiring a Face ID scan cannot be unlocked using this method. A mask must be removed or a passcode must be used in certain circumstances.
TrueDepth Front Camera Features
The TrueDepth camera system’s 12-megapixel f/2.2 front-facing selfie/FaceTime camera has many of the same functionality as the system’s rear-facing camera, in addition to powering facial recognition. There are many photographic features available on the rear cameras, including Night mode for selfies, Smart HDR 4, Dolby Vision HDR recording, and Deep Fusion, along with ProRes and the new Cinematic Mode for capturing videos with a movie-like depth of field changes, that are supported by the A15 chip in the new iPhone 13 Pro models. Photographic Styles for carefully applying edits are all supported, in addition to 4K video recording, QuickTake video, Slo-mo video, and Portrait Mode.
Triple Lens Rear View Camera
Apple’s 13-inch iPhones include a three-lens camera system, with the Telephoto lens having 77mm elements and the Wide lens having 26mm elements, and the Ultra Wide lens having 13mm elements with f/1.8 aperture. Dual optical image stabilization is supported by the Wide and Telephoto lenses, while sensor-shift optical image stabilization is supported by the Wide lens. The bigger aperture of the Wide lens lets in 2.2 times more light than the standard lens, and it also has the biggest sensor yet found in an iPhone. It’s capable of taking photos in a wide range of colors.
In addition to having a wider aperture and a quicker sensor, the Ultra Wide lens also has autofocus. The new lens captures up to 92% more light, which should result in vastly improved image quality. It also contains distortion correction to account for the broad field of view’s impact on image distortion. By adding the Ultra Wide and Telephoto lenses, the camera’s zoom range expands to 6X optically and supports up to 15X digitally, which is an improvement over its predecessor’s 2.5X zoom. On the other hand, the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro do not have a LiDAR Scanner.
Video Record In iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max
It is possible to shoot 4K video at 24, 25, 30, and 60 frames per second with the new iPhone 13 Pro models, as well as HDR video in up to 4K with Dolby Vision at 60 frames per second It’s possible to capture videos in resolutions as high as 1080p or as low as 720p. Apple plans to add recording capability for the ProRes video format, which is used in movies, commercials, and other professional applications, later this year. The enormous file sizes associated with ProRes are due to the format’s exceptional color fidelity and lack of compression. Up to 4K at 30fps can be recorded in roRes, but you’ll need at least 256GB of storage to do so. You can only record in 1080p at 30 frames per second using the 128GB iPhone 13 Pro.
Apple’s iPhone 13-inch models have a unique Cinematic Option that effortlessly switches the focus from one subject to another while recording video. This mode uses rack focus. The point is kept in focus while the background is blurred, and the focus can be changed automatically when a new subject enters the scene.
After recording video, blur and focus can be changed in the Photos app. The cinematic mode supports Dolby Vision HDR and the Wide, Telephoto, and TrueDepth cameras. Aside from those mentioned, the camera also has a number of other video functions such as QuickTake video and audio zoom as well as Time-lapse, Night mode Time-lapse, and continuous autofocus mode.

Battery Life Of iPhone 13 And Pro Max
- With the A15 chip and higher battery capacity, Apple has increased battery life on the whole iPhone 13 line. A 1.5-hour improvement in battery life on both the iPhone 13 Pro compares favorably with the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
- The iPhone 13 Pro can play video for up to 22 hours, stream video for up to 20 hours, and play music for up to 75 hours.
- With a 3,095 mAh battery in the iPhone 13 Pro, the iPhone 12 Pro’s battery capacity increased to 2,815 mAh,
- Using a Lightning to USB-C connector with a 20W power adapter, both iPhone 13 Pro models can be charged to 50% in 30 minutes.
iPhone 13 Pro Max
- A15 chip with higher battery capacity, Apple has increased battery life on the whole iPhone 13 line. A 1.5-hour improvement in battery life on 13pro Max.
- The iPhone 13 Pro Max can play video for up to 28 hours, stream video for up to 25 hours, and play music for up to 95 hours.
- while the iPhone 13 Pro Max has a 4,352 mAh battery, the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s capacity increased to 3,687 mAh.
- Using a Lightning to USB-C connector with a 20W power adapter, both iPhone 13 Pro max models can be charged to 50% in 30 minutes.
5G Band Network
In addition to LTE networks, the iPhone 13 models, like the iPhone 12, enable 5G networks. It is true that the devices’ 5G modems function with both mmWave and Sub-6GHz 5G, however, mmWave speeds are only available in the US. Only major cities and metropolitan regions with large populations, such as airports, concert venues, and other sites where large crowds gather may employ mmWave 5G networks because they are short-range and can be blocked by surrounding structures, such as buildings and trees.
Urban, suburban, and rural locations across the United States and other countries already have access to low-bandwidth 5G, which operates at sub-6GHz. Sub-6GHz 5G is what you’ll be using the majority of the time on a 5G network. Even though 5G at sub-6GHz frequencies is often quicker than LTE, it’s not the extremely speedy 5G you might expect.
5G Connectivity Download And Update Rate
Faster download and upload rates are made possible with 5G connectivity, which makes it faster to load webpages and download TV episodes and movies. It also improves FaceTime call quality and enhances streaming service capacity so you can view in greater resolution. FaceTime calls a function in 1080p over WiFi or 5G. 5G decreases congestion and frees up capacity in regions where LTE speeds are slow due to the high population density.
The MagSafe magnetic ring that connects to the MagSafe charger and other magnetic accessories is still included in the iPhone 13 series. In comparison to Qi-based chargers, which only provide 7.5W of wireless charging power, the MagSafe charger provides 15W of charging power. Third-party firms can also produce accessories for MagSafe iPhones, like as cases, sleeves, and snap-on wallets. All of these magnetic accessories are compatible with the magnetic ring.
MagSafe Charger Accessories
MagSafe Chargers, according to Apple, can leave a circular mark on leather cases, while silicone cases have had the same problem. Credit cards, badges, passports, and keyfobs are all prohibited from being placed between the iPhone and the MagSafe charger, according to Apple. Medical devices like pacemakers and defibrillators can be harmed by the iPhone 13 Pro models with MagSafe technology, which is present in all iPhones. MagSafe iPhones and other MagSafe accessories should be kept away from implanted medical equipment, according to Apple.
Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and the Universal Serial Bus
Enhanced spatial awareness is possible with the iPhone 13 models thanks to the Apple-designed U1 processor, which uses Ultra-Wideband technology to locate other U1-equipped Apple devices. Because Ultra Wideband is designed to improve indoor positioning and location monitoring, Apple compares it to “GPS at the scale of the living room.” To precisely track neighboring AirTags, Apple’s iPhone 13 and 13 Plus use the U1 chip. As previously mentioned, the U1 chip is employed for directional AirDrop and interaction with the HomePod mini. The iPhone 13 Pro versions include Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi 6 built-in (802.11ax).
Speakers are included as an extra feature.
Both the iPhone 13Pro and the iPhone 13 have stereo speakers, with one on the top adjacent to the notch and the other near to the Lightning port.
Sensors in iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max
The barometer, three-axis gyroscope, accelerometer, proximity sensor, and ambient light sensor are all included in the new iPhone 13Pro versions.
NFC and GPS
GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS, and BeiDou are all supported by the iPhone 13 versions.
A background tag function allows iPhone models to scan NFC tags without opening an app first. NFC reader mode is also provided.
Pricing Of iPhone 13 Pro and Pro max
Starting at $999 for the regular-sized iPhone 13Pro and $1,099 for the larger 13 Pro Max, there were no price hikes this year. On Friday, September 17 at 5:00 a.m. Pacific Time, pre-orders for the new iPhone 13Pro models opened, and on Friday, September 24, the first devices began shipping to consumers worldwide.
Unlock with Apple Watch isn’t working for some iPhone 13Pro users, according to reports. This problem has now been acknowledged by Apple as a bug, and it will be addressed in a future software update. After restoring an iPhone or an iPad from a backup, Apple has discovered a bug that can cause widgets to revert to their default settings, as well as a bug that prevents users from accessing the Apple Music catalogue, Apple Music settings, or Sync Library. These issues affect “a small number of devices,” according to Apple.
Ending Note On iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max
The ProMotion display and long battery life of the iPhone 13Pro have thrilled reviewers, but many still see it as little more than a minor update to the iPhone 12 Pro from a year ago. Apple, according to Dieter Bohn of the Verge, accomplished a “the implementation of a ProMotion display on iPhone 13Pro models has done a fantastic job,” he said, adding that “when I scroll on the iPhone 13Pro, the text stays readable instead of blurring.”
There is more fluidity in how things move on the screen.”
All four iPhone 13 models, according to Joanna Stern of the Wall Street Journal, last at least an hour longer than the similar iPhone 12 models. When it comes to the new Cinematic mode on all four iPhone 13 models, critics like CNET’s Patrick Holland were particularly impressed. He called the effect “dramatic and amazing,” even though it does require “a considerable amount of light to operate well.”
