iPhone 13 Pro Max, analysis: the 120 Hz comes with a record autonomy in an iPhone

Today has been the day chosen for Apple to remove the veil from the iPhone 13 series, as well as the new iPad and Apple Watch Series 7, so there is a lot of news to cover. This time we will know the best and most recent Apple in the field of smartphones, we are talking about the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, which raise the photographic capabilities of the standard model and also the screen. Without further ado, it’s time to meet them. 

iPhone 13 Pro 

Ok, admittedly, the iPhone 13s do not break much from the established design line, but in their defense, the changes come where they matter most, on the inside. In this sense, the glass matte finish is repeated, the arrangement of the cameras, 90 degree angles for the edges and other characteristics that we already know from the iPhone 12. There is also IP68 certification, which means that they are resistant to water and the dust.

That said, the iPhone 13 Pro opts for a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display with a resolution of 2,532 x 1,170 pixels and, even more interesting: dynamic refresh rate from 10Hz to 120Hz that changes depending on the usage scenario to save battery life. . But these are not all the advantages over the original model, as it also achieves a brightness of 1,000 nits. 

On the other hand, the Apple A15 Bionic chip  remains the epicenter of it all, exhibiting the best CPU and graphics performance ever seen in an Apple device; 50% faster than the Snapdragon 888, according to the company. Normally here we would list the amount of RAM and battery capacity, but as is the custom with Apple, they have not given any clues.

However, what we do know are the internal storage variants, which start from 128GB to the entire Terabyte. 

At the photographic level, 3 rear cameras await us, the main one is 12MP (f / 1.5) with OIS and a pixel size of 1.9 microns . This sensor is accompanied by a 12MP (f / 2.8) telephoto lens plus a 12MP (f1.8) ultra-wide sensor with a 120 ° field of view. For its part, the front camera also uses a 12MP sensor (f / 2.2), but compatible with face ID.

iPhone 13 Pro Max 

The iPhone 13 Pro Max can be differentiated at a glance by its 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display with dynamic refresh rate, but it is not only larger, since it also offers a slightly higher resolution than the Pro model (2,778 x 1,284 pixels), to which must be added a density of 458 pixels per inch. 

Under the hood is the same hardware as its siblings, so they have nothing to envy in terms of net performance. 

iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max - Features

In all the terminals of the iPhone 13 series the operating system iOS 15 , and the connectivity options cover everything that we could ask from a phone; there are from 5G (Sub-6gHz) to WiFi 6 with 2 × 3 MIMO, including Bluetooth 5.0 and through NFC. 

The cameras on the iPhone 13 Pro Max are the same as the Pro model, so we can expect the same results. That said, it’s worth mentioning that the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max’s cameras promise 2.2 times better performance than their predecessor in low-light conditions , not to mention the addition of macro mode and Cinema mode. The latter allows you to use selective focus and record in HDR with Dolby Vision. Also striking is the addition of Photo Styles (filters) and the improved night mode.
