Say hello to iPhone 13 Pro Max, Apple’s largest smartphone from the iPhone 13 series. First released in September 2021, this advanced handset brings a whole host of exciting features to explore, including iOS 15 and the excellent Cinematic Mode.

1) Design & display

As you hold iPhone 13 Pro Max in your hand, you immediately notice the spacious 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display. The larger screen estate creates an immersive viewing experience, so you can enjoy your favourite Netflix series wherever you are. On top of this, the display is made with the durable Ceramic Shield front, which protects your smartphone from scratches, drops, and everyday wear and tear. Combined with the IP68 dust and water-resistant feature, this handset gives you even more peace of mind in the event of the occasional mishap.


iPhone 13 Pro Max’s design is similar to its predecessor, 12 Pro Max, sporting a stainless-steel frame and the ergonomic flat round edges that have become synonymous with iPhone. Its unique shape relieves you of any strain, allowing you to text, tweet and call one-handed.

2) Dual lens camera

Turn the smartphone over and you’ll find an advanced trio camera system, including a 12MP wide lens, 12MP telephoto lens and 12MP ultrawide lens. Take detailed snaps at any time of day thanks to the brilliant Night Mode setting, in which iPhone 13 Pro Max will automatically adjust your photograph’s brightness in the dark. Not to mention the superb Portrait Lighting feature, which allows you to experiment with six unique effects such as Natural, Studio, Contour, Stage, Stage Mono and High Key Light Mono – for professional-grade photos.


There’s even a Cinematic Mode, to take your shots to the next level. Transform your content by recording videos with a shallow depth of field and shift focus from one subject to another - perfect for both filmmakers and vloggers.

3) iOS 15 update

Apple’s latest system update, iOS 15, comes predownloaded with iPhone 13 Pro Max. Users can appreciate the abundance of brand-new features, like SharePlay mode. This allows you to continue FaceTiming your friend, whilst simultaneously enjoying a film or listening to music on Spotify – all from the same device. Plus, effortlessly share content during a FaceTime session by simply sharing your device’s screen, for a streamlined video chat.


Meanwhile, Apple Maps sees some innovative revamps too. By using ground-breaking augmented reality technology, Maps transforms how you get to your destination by displaying precisely which street to head down onscreen. Simply raise your device and you’ll be given step-by-step walking directions to navigate you to your destination. Check travel conditions, pin your favourite routes and see live travel times, all with the flick of a finger.

4) Li-ion battery

For long-lasting, reliable and efficient performance, iPhone 13 Pro Max is built with the non-removable Li-ion battery. With a battery capacity of 4352 mAh, you’ll have plenty of battery life to get you through the day without worrying about where the nearest plug-in adapter is. Plus, its fast-charging time means you won’t need to power up for very long either.

Another useful feature is iPhone 13 Pro Max’s wireless charging compatibility (sold separately). This allows you to charge your device without plugging it in, removing any unnecessary loose cords.

5) A15 Bionic Chip

The engine behind the lightning quick speed is the powerful A15 Bionic chip, which lets you smoothly multi-task, even with the most demanding applications, without freezing. Mobile gamers will also appreciate iPhone 13 Pro Max’s ability to deal with graphics-intensive games with ease.


The chipset’s versatility is great news for anyone interested in creating their own visual content. Its sharpness enables you to edit, crop and post-produce images or footage at fast speeds and in crystal clear quality, all on the same handset.

According to Apple, their dedicated 16 core Neural engine is able to produce an increased CPU speed of up to 50%, and up to fifteen times faster than any other iPhone model. As a result, you’ll see major improvements to Siri’s reaction time and precision.

iPhone 13 Pro Max is 5G ready, meaning you’ll be able to listen to your weekly podcast on the train undisturbed by buffering or freezing – and you can quickly surf Safari in an instant when Wi-Fi is unavailable.
