Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max review: Is bigger better?

The iPhone 13 Pro Max sports a very similar design to the iPhone 12 Pro Max, but there are differences if you look closely. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The iPhone 13 Pro Max now sports a smaller notch at the top of the screen. It's narrower, but slightly taller. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There are three new lenses on the iPhone 13 Pro Max -- and new shooting modes including a macro for close-up photography, and Cinematic mode for video. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
You can charge the iPhone 13 Pro Max via a 15W MagSafe charger, or use the MagSafe magnets to attach accessories like this new Leather Wallet (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The new screen is great for watching movies, and that big battery means you can watch around 28 hours of it on a single charge. It's got 120Hz refresh too. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This is a UK £10 note, shot with the iPhone 13 Pro Max in macro mode. We didn't realise there was writing on this bit... until now. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Macro mode is also great for snapping bugs and similar. How quickly the novelty of photographing things close-up will depend on you though. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Night Mode has been extended to all three lenses and Portrait mode. The results in our tests have been truly knockout. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The new lenses let in more light, which in turn means taking sharp pictures is much easier. Here's a Portrait mode example. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The iPhone 13 Pro Max is big, but if you want the largest screen and longest-lasting battery it's worth buying - struggle as you will to fit it into your jeans. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
