iPhone 12 Pro Max vs iPhone 13 Comparison

iPhone 12 Pro Max vs iPhone 13

While the differences between the two smartphones are obvious on appearance, such as their size, they are actually comparable in many ways. This is evident in terms of price for example. For a similar cost, you can choose between a noticeably large smartphone vs a newer and compact device. So how do you choose? Here are some answers below.

Find out our iPhone 12 Pro Max price.

iPhone 12 Pro Max, the XXL format

Both smartphones have a 60Hz OLED panel, but the iPhone 12 Pro Max is visibly larger. This means it offers unparalleled usability thanks to its 6.7-inch screen, compared to the 6.1-inch screen of the iPhone 13. The iPhone 12 Pro Max is therefore particularly suitable for users who consume a lot of streaming content on their smartphone.

However, it's almost impossible to tell the difference between the two in terms of battery life. Even if it's bigger, the iPhone 12 Pro Max knows how to adapt its power consumption and its screen so as not to drain its battery life so easily.

The difference is more marked in photography. The iPhone 12 Pro Max has an optical zoom, which is absent on the iPhone 13. However, the iPhone 13 makes up for it with a cinematic camera and various advanced photo modes instead.

The iPhone 13 will get a year's worth of iOS updates

The newer iPhone 13 has the edge in longevity. It will receive an annual update from Apple. Especially since it embeds a particularly powerful A15 Bionic chip capable of supporting heavy updates.

However, the power of the processor is practically as good as each other during normal everyday use. The fluidity in the user interface and experience is almost impossible to differentiate between the two.

Do you like to play games or watch movies and TV shows on your smartphone? The iPhone 12 Pro Max with its 6.7-inch screen is just what you need. If you want to be sure of receiving iOS updates for as long as possible, you'll want to consider the iPhone 13. Either way, both phones will provide excellent performance in everything you require a smartphone to do.

From phones to fridges, you can’t choose wrong.
