. More 5G bands are available to support more carriers, especially outside the US.


Display

The iPhone 13 Pro features a 6.1-inch 1170 x 2532 pixel display and the larger iPhone 13 Pro Max features a 6.7-inch 1284 x 2778 pixel display. Both models have the Super Retina XDR OLED display with improved typical brightness up-to 1000 nits, and max brightness up-to 1200 nits, and for the first time in an iPhone, a variable 120 Hz ProMotion display, which can also go as low as 10 Hz to preserve battery.


Batteries

Apple claims up to 1.5 more hours of battery life on the iPhone 13 Pro than its predecessor, and 2.5 more hours on the 13 Pro Max. Rated capacities are 11.97 Wh (3,095 mAh) on the 13 Pro, while the 13 Pro Max is rated at 16.75 Wh (4,352 mAh). Both models can charge with MagSafe up to 15 W, Qi wireless charging up to 7.5 W, and Lightning up to 20-27 W for the (Pro Max), 20-23 W For the (Pro).


Cameras

The iPhone 13 Pro features four cameras: one front-facing camera and three back-facing cameras, including a telephoto, wide, and ultra-wide camera. The back-facing cameras all contain larger sensors than the iPhone 12 Pro, allowing for more light-gathering. The wide and ultra-wide also have larger apertures to capture more light and increase low-light performance. The ultra-wide camera also has autofocus for the first time. The 77 mm telephoto has a smaller aperture than the 12 Pro's, but has the advantage of being able to use Night Mode for the first time. The larger telephoto also increases the digital zoom capability to 15x. The cameras use Apple's latest

, because it works intelligently with the image processing algorithm during capture to apply local adjustments to an image. The camera app contains a new mode called Cinematic Mode, which allows users to between subjects and create shallow depth of field using software algorithms. It is supported on the wide, telephoto and front-facing cameras in 1080p at 30 fps. Apple also added in iOS 15.1 the ability to record in

4K at 30 fps for models with at least 256 GB of storage, however base models with 128 GB of storage will be limited to ProRes recording at 1080p 30 fps. The camera features a macro mode that can focus as close as 2 centimeters from a subject. It utilizes the autofocus from the ultra-wide camera, and is automatically enabled when close enough to a subject.
