Apple iPhone 13

The new model has a “square” design almost identical to the iPhone 12. The smartphone is 5G compatible, MagSafe and new cameras are equivalent to the iPhone 12 Pro Max. It also gets a bigger battery which in our tests lasted 4.5 hours longer on a single charge than the iPhone 12. Add to that the A15 Bionic chip, a new Cinematic Mode that’s essentially a video version of the iPhone. Portrait mode and iOS 15, and you’ve got a great phone.

The iPhone 13 is Apple’s most balanced formula, as was the iPhone 12 last year. The new model captures the strengths of its predecessor while showing a little more severe autonomy. We regret the deadlock made on the 120 Hz refresh rate reserved for Pro models, but Apple offers us excellent image quality at 60 Hz. Again, the iPhone is a must-have for any consumer looking for a complete high-end smartphone.

iPhone 13 Pro

The iPhone 13 Pro is Apple’s best phone right now. With the 13 series, we see a fundamental distinction between the Pro and non-Pro models, giving the iPhone 13 Pro a high refresh rate screen, macro mode, ProRes video recording and best cameras ever used on an iPhone. The 13 Pro features a sleek matte finish back and shiny stainless steel sides in terms of design. The 13 Pro’s display supports what Apple calls ProMotion. Depending on what is displayed on the screen, the refresh rate goes from 10 to 120 Hz. 

In use, the screen looks superb. Animations are smooth, graphics are crisp, and even mundane things like scrolling through web pages are more enjoyable. It works under iOS 15, supports 5G and MagSafe charging. Like the average iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Pro comes equipped with an A15 Bionic chip but gets an additional GPU core, boosting gaming and video editing. In short, it’s the best iPhone around.

It is not a revolution in itself, the iPhone 13 Pro being in the tradition of its predecessor. But Apple is serving us a complete smartphone that is hard to fault. Too bad its price is higher than that of the Google Pixel 6 Pro, which performs in the same areas. Despite everything, the improvements made on the side of the screen, the photo/video part and the autonomy are enough to make it a must-have for all regulars of iOS.

iPhone 13 Pro Max

The first thing you need to know about the iPhone 13 Pro Max is that it is among the most standalone smartphones on the market. Then you should know that unlike the 12 Pro and Pro Max, the 13 Pro and Pro Max are pretty much the same in every way and even have the same cameras. In essence, it is the same smartphone but more extensive. The iPhone 13 Pro Max thus has a 6.7-inch Pro Motion screen against 6.1 inches for the 13 Pro. 

The Max is also bigger and heavier. Some of that extra weight comes from the 13 Pro Max’s larger battery. If you can handle the size of this phone juggernaut, it’s worth every penny of its hefty price tag. The iPhone 13 Pro Max is the fastest and largest version of this generation of iPhone. Great novelty, its 6.7-inch screen, like the iPhone 13 Pro, benefits from a 120 Hz refresh rate. Apple’s Ceramic Shield also protects the latter, and the device is IP68 certified for resistance to dust and water. The photo part has also been improved, and the A15 Bionic chip brings more power.

iPhone 13 Mini

Who said small smartphones didn’t exist in 2021? If you are looking for one, the iPhone 13 mini does just as well as the iPhone 13 by being more compact. And don’t worry about its battery life because it has a larger battery than the iPhone 12 mini. It ran almost 3.5 hours longer on a single charge in our test. The device even stayed on for an hour longer than the iPhone 12. 

In short, it is, therefore, an excellent choice, especially since it costs less than the iPhone 13. Apple is renewing its mini model to the delight of fans of compact smartphones. But is the iPhone 13 mini just a smaller version of the iPhone 13? And should you give in to temptation when you already have an iPhone 12 mini?
