When you talk about the key features of these phones, you have found that the virtual features are exactly the same. For the first time,Apple put the same virtual features in two different phones. As you previously see, the previous iPhone 12 pro and 12 pro max had a big difference in camera.

That means the screen of iPhone 13 pro max displays more contents and its UI elements (such as keyboard) are comparatively bigger than 13 pro. On the other hand, the iPhone 13 pro is quite handy to grip in one hand for its smaller size.


Though,the displays of both phones are assembled with the same technologies but the screen size affects  the resolution of the phone. 


The pixel density of iPhone 13 pro is 460ppi and the resolution is 2532‑by‑1170-pixel. Inversely the pixel density of 13 pro max is 458ppi and it differs the resolution to 2778‑by‑1284-pixel.

If we look at the dimensions, the iPhone 13 pro is 14.1mm shorter and 6.6mm narrower than its big buddy 13 pro max.



The one noticeable difference between these two phones is their battery. No, I  don’t state that one of these phones holds the worst battery life. 


Even though these two phones have the best battery and battery life ever Apple has produced. But, if the battery of iPhone 13 is better,then the best is put in iPhone 13 pro max.


iPhone 13 pro max has 4352 mAh battery with 28 hours of video playback,up to 25 hours streamed video playback with 95 hours of audio playback.


Contrastingly,iPhone 13 pro holds a lesser battery life. With its 3095 mAh  it has a long 22 hours of video playback,20 Hours of Streamed video playback and 75 hours of audio playback.


Actually both phones' batteries are satisfactory to users,iPhone 13 pro max surpasses all the levels when it comes to. iPhones battery.


Big things should be earned with big money.Okay let’s not be so philosophical. For its bigger size the starting price of iPhone 13 pro max is 100$ more than 13 pro.


iPhone 13 pro starts with 999$ and ends up with 1499$ for the 1TB variant. You need to add 100$ more for grabbing the variants of pro max. That means it starts with 1099$ and ends up with 1599$.

Final Verdict


The final verdict of choosing between one of these phones depends on your demand. If you want  lightweight,good pocketability,comfortable grip and the most importantly ‘less price’ in a phone but you can explore all the top notch virtual apple features with a high-end camera,then iPhone 13 pro is the best one for you.


But if the bigger screen size and the best battery life are your personal preference and you have no issues with money then you can go for the 13 pro max.


My final thoughts on these two phones is: It depends on your preference since the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max share practically the same features other than battery life.
