The iPhone 13 Pro Max will be the successor to the iPhone 12 Pro Max and will be released in the fall of 2021. The largest iPhone of this year is rumored to have an improved screen and camera. On this page, we’ll update you on the best new iPhone of 2021.
Expected Features of the iPhone 13 Pro Max
- Largest new iPhone gets a 6.7-inch OLED screen
- Always-on screen to show notifications and apps
- Screen has a 120Hz refresh rate, twice as much as the 12 Pro Max
- Again, four cameras, including an improved ultra wide-angle lens
- iPhone 13 Pro Max release in September 2021
- Presentation probably on September 14th
- New color: matte black
- Expected price of iPhone 13 Pro Max in Saudi Arabia: 5580 SAR
First, the refresh rate would go up from 60Hz to 120Hz. As a result, all pixels in the screen refresh no less than 120 times per second, making animations and games look very smooth. Apple already has experience with so-called ProMotion screens: the iPad Pro already has one.
YouTube channel UnboxTherapy managed to get its hands on a dummy model of the iPhone 13 Pro Max. This dummy shows exactly what this year’s largest iPhone will (probably) look like.
The screen stays on forever
Furthermore, the iPhone 13 Pro Max would get an always-on display. As you can tell from the name, such a display never turns off completely, but it always stays on in a minimal way.
That’s handy, because you can, for example, read the time, weather forecasts, and incoming emails without unlocking your iPhone. The Apple Watch Series 5 and Series 6 already have an always-on display.
Smaller Notch for iPhone 13 Pro Max
In addition, 2021 would finally be the year in which Apple tackles the notch hated by many. This screen notch, which houses, for example, the sensors for facial unlocking, has been almost identical for years. However, with the iPhone 13 series, Apple would have found a way to make these sensors smaller.
That’s good news because this shrinks the notch and so you have more screen at your disposal. The coin also has another side, because thanks to this smaller iPhone notch, the device may be slightly thicker.
Touch ID under the screen
Finally, it is rumored that Apple is breathing new life into Touch ID , but slightly different. The fingerprint scanner would be processed under the screen. So you unlock the iPhone 13 Pro Max by placing your finger on a specific part of the display.
However, we recommend taking this claim with a grain of salt. We’ve heard more often in recent years that Apple would incorporate Touch ID into the iPhone screen, but so far in vain. This technique is not very unique: competing Android phones have had fingerprint scanners under the screen for some time.
According to website DigiTimes, the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max will have an extra energy-efficient LTPO screen. Such a display puts less pressure on the battery life, so you can use your device long before it has to be recharged again.
According to DigiTimes, the screen of the iPhone 13 Pro (Max) consumes about fifteen to twenty percent less power than this year’s entry-level models, the iPhone 13 and 13 mini.
The camera puts the finishing touches
In terms of the iPhone cameras, expectations are less high. According to rumors, Apple improves the camera of the iPhone 13 Pro Max mainly in a subtle way. The camera island of the 12 Pro Max, therefore, remains largely the same. However, the lenses would protrude less compared to the housing. This prevents scratches when you put your device (without a protective cover) on the table, for example.
So we expect the biggest iPhone of 2021 to have four cameras: three on the back and a selfie camera. Also included: a LiDAR depth sensor. This sensor is very good at measuring depths and boosts the quality of portrait photos.
