iPhone 13 Pro Max: 5 thoughts after three weeks with Apple's new flagship

The pro camera system receives its most significant upgrade yet, with new Ultra Wide, Wide, and Telephoto cameras that take amazing images and video, all powered by the unrivalled performance of the A15 Bionic, which is more powerful than the competition.

New computational photography features like Photographic Styles personalise the look of images in the Camera app, and both models now include Night mode on all cameras. Video takes a huge leap forward with Cinematic mode for beautiful depth-of-field transitions, macro video, Time-lapse and Slo-mo, and even better low-light performance.

iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will be available in four stunning finishes, including graphite, gold, silver, and the all-new sierra blue. Pre-orders begin Friday, September 17, with availability beginning Friday, September 24.

Both models also offer end-to-end pro workflows in Dolby Vision, and for the first time, ProRes, only available on iPhone. iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max also include 5G with more bands for better coverage, big improvements to battery life for the best battery life ever on iPhone with iPhone 13 Pro Max, new storage capacity of 1TB, and the Ceramic Shield front cover, tougher than any smartphone glass.

Story Highlights

  • Apple unveiled the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max today, pushing the limits of what a smartphone can do. Both versions include an all-new Super Retina XDR display with ProMotion, which has an adjustable refresh rate up to 120Hz and makes the touch experience quicker and more responsive.

  • These technologies enable impressive new photo capabilities never before possible on iPhone, like macro photography on the new Ultra Wide camera and up to 2.2x improved low-light performance on the new Wide camera.
