iPhone 13 Pro vs. iPhone 13 Pro Max – Key Differences

Both the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max have a lot in common – camera, processor and refresh rates. There are also a few key differences, such as:

  • Display: This is an important difference between the two devices. The iPhone 13 Pro has a 6.1-inch display with 2532 x 1170 pixels, while iPhone 13 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch display with 2778 x 1284 pixels. With a bigger screen, your apps are better organised and navigation is easier. It is also useful when you are viewing photos, watching videos, or reading e-books and digital newspapers. But a smaller display, like on the 13 Pro, means a compact phone that is easier to use and carry.
  • Battery: The iPhone 13 Pro Max has a 4,352 mAh battery, while the iPhone 13 Pro has a 3,095 mAh battery. With a bigger, more powerful battery, you can watch videos, play games and surf the web for a longer time without the need for charging. It is also useful when you are travelling and have no charging point or a power bank with you.
  • Price: Another decisive factor in choosing between iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max is the price. While a refurbished iPhone 13 Pro may cost you $1,149, you can buy a refurbished iPhone 13 Pro Max at $1,549 on an average. You can decide which iPhone model to choose according to your budget and the models’ availability.
  • Charging speed: The iPhone 13 Pro Max can charge up to 53% with a standard Apple 20w charger, while the iPhone 13 Pro charges up to 40% in the same period. With faster charging and a long-lasting battery, iPhone 13 Pro Max has a definite edge over the iPhone 13 Pro.

Which is Better - the iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max?

Both iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are great mobiles and users love both phones immensely. You may choose between the two according to your preference and usage. If you like compact mobile phones, with good battery life and are on a budget, then you can buy iPhone 13 Pro. If you prefer a larger display and can afford to pay a higher price, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is the right choice. 

It is also a good idea to watch videos of unboxing and usage of both mobiles. Or if your friend or relative has either of these mobiles, you can visit them and check the look and feel of the mobile. Are you an existing iPhone user? If yes, then you will find these models irresistible and a big upgrade over the previous models. If you are planning to buy your first iPhone, the iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max are great choices. They have great features and introduce you to the Apple eco-system at an affordable cost.

You can also choose to buy the iPhone on the basis of your usage. If you use your iPhone to watch movies or other videos at home or travelling, you may prefer the iPhone 13 Pro Max, which supports up to 28 hours of video playback. The bigger display also means bigger app icons and ease of use. The smaller display of the iPhone 13 Pro Max is useful if you like a compact mobile that can be carried conveniently. The difference in price also is a key factor that may influence your decision.
