During its California Streaming event, Apple unveiled the iPhone 13 series that includes four smartphones: iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. The iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max are the higher-end devices of the bunch. Both smartphones feature a design that’s similar to their predecessors, the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max, respectively, but come in newer colours. They have brand new screens, a faster processor, improved cameras, higher storage options, and bigger batteries. Let us have a look at their designs, features, and specifications in detail.
Apple iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max Features & Specifications
The Apple iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max are the first iPhones with high-refresh-rate OLED displays, and Apple calls its new displays ProMotion Super Retina XDR. The iPhone 13 Pro has a 6.1-inch OLED display, while the iPhone 13 Pro Max sports a 6.7-inch ProMotion OLED display. Screens on both smartphones feature Full HD+ resolution, a 120Hz variable refresh rate (10Hz to 120Hz), Dolby Vision HDR, and Ceramic Shield protective glass. Apple says that the screens on the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max vary their refresh rates depending on the content that’s being displayed to extend battery life. Apple still hasn’t managed to get rid of the ugly notch on the display, but it is now 20% smaller compared to the iPhone 12 series.
The iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max have exactly similar camera setups at the front and the rear. Both smartphones feature 12MP front-facing cameras with Face ID for secure Face Unlock. At the rear, both smartphones feature a newer and better triple-camera setup with a LiDAR sensor. There is a bigger 12MP primary camera sensor with an F1.5 aperture, dual-pixel PDAF, and sensor-shift OIS. Then there’s a 12MP ultrawide camera with autofocus and an F1.8 aperture. The 12MP telephoto camera has 3x optical zoom, OIS, and autofocus. The 3D ToF LiDAR sensor is used for depth measurement and AR apps.

All the cameras on the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max can record up to 4K 60fps videos in Dolby Vision HDR and 4K 30fps ProRes videos.

The iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max come in four storage variants: 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB. Apple hasn’t disclosed how much RAM its new phones use, though. However, reports state that the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max feature 8GB of RAM.
Connectivity features of these new smartphones include 5G (sub-6GHz and mmWave), GPS, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, UWB (Ultra Wideband), NFC, and Lightning Port. Both smartphones use stainless steel frames and Ceramic Shield glass protection on the front.

To support the high-refresh-rate display, Apple has increased the battery capacities of its new iPhones.
