They do ship with a USB-C to Lightning cable for charging purposes.

Pricing and Availability

Pricing on the iPhone 13 Pro starts at $999, while pricing on the iPhone 13 Pro Max starts at $1099. Pre-orders for the iPhone 13 Pro models started on September 17, 2021, with the first devices arriving to customers on September 24, 2021.

Reviews

 Positives include the improved battery life, smaller front notch, and the 120Hz ProMotion display, plus the updated camera system with Macro photography option and the new Cinematic mode. On the downside, some reviewers feel that it’s more of an iterative update as there are no major design changes or feature improvements.

said Apple did an “excellent job” with its implementation of a ProMotion display on iPhone 13 Pro models, commenting that “when I scroll on the iPhone 13 Pro, the text stays readable instead of turning into a blur. Things moving on the screen are smoother.”

For more thoughts on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max,

Design

iphone 13 pro models sizes

Apple is using that same flat-edged design for the entire iPhone 13 lineup, and the iPhone 13 models look nearly identical to the iPhone 12 models they replace. The flat-edged design manages to feel both modern and familiar at the same time because it’s a design that Apple has used in the past.

The iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max feature an all-glass front and a textured glass back that sandwich a frame made from a shiny, surgical-grade stainless steel material. Apple matches the stainless steel frame to the color of the glass at the back for a seamless look.

There continues to be a notch at the front of the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max, housing the TrueDepth Camera, speaker, and microphone.

Antenna bands are located at the top and sides of the phone, along with the standard power button on the right and volume buttons on the left.

The iPhone 13 Pro models include speaker holes and microphones at the bottom, along with a Lightning port for charging purposes. The SIM slot is located on the left side of the device.

A square camera bump is located at the back of the iPhone 13 Pro models, and there’s a triple-lens camera setup. The iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max have larger camera bumps than the iPhone 12 Pro models, and the size increase is most noticeable with the iPhone 13 Pro.

Sizes

Like the iPhone 12 Pro models, the iPhone 13 Pro models come in 6.1 and 6.7-inch sizes, with the 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max positioned as Apple’s largest iPhone. The iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max are thicker than the iPhone 12 Pro models, and are also a bit heavier.

The iPhone 13 Pro measures in at 5.78 inches tall (146.7mm), 2.82 inches wide (71.5mm), and 0.30 inches thick (7.65mm), while the iPhone 13 Pro Max measures in at 6.33 inches tall (160.8mm), 3.07 inches wide (78.1mm), and 0.30 inches thick (7.65mm).

Water Resistance

The iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max feature an IP68 water resistant rating. The smartphones are able to withstand a depth of up to six meters (19.7 feet) for up to 30 minutes, identical to the iPhone 12 Pro models.

In the IP68 number, the 6 refers to dust resistance (and means the iPhone 13 Pro can hold up to dirt, dust, and other particulates), while the 8 pertains to water resistance. IP6x is the highest dust resistance rating that exists.

Water and dust resistance are not permanent conditions, according to Apple, and can deteriorate over time as a result of normal wear. Apple’s warranty does not cover liquid damage, which means it’s best to use caution when it comes to liquid exposure.

Display

All of the iPhone 13 models feature the same OLED Super Retina XDR display, which is flexible and extends right into the chassis of each device.

There’s a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio for blacker blacks and brighter whites, and up to 1200 nits peak brightness for HDR photos, videos, TV shows, and movies. Typical max brightness is 1000 nits for the Pro models and 800 nits for the standard iPhone 13 models. Apple says the display is 25 percent brighter outdoors.

iphone 13 pro display sizes

The 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro features a resolution of 2532 x 1170 with 460 pixels per inch, while the 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max has a resolution of 2778 x 1284 with 458 pixels per inch.

Wide color support brings vivid, true-to-life colors, and True Tone matches the white balance of the display to the ambient lighting for a paper-like viewing experience that’s easier on the eyes.

There’s also a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating and support for Haptic Touch, which provides haptic feedback when interacting with the display.

According to DisplayMate, the iPhone 13 Pro Max has the best smartphone display, which has earned a grade of A+ thanks to ProMotion technology, HDR, max brightness, color accuracy, contrast ratio, and more.

Smaller Notch

Apple slimmed down the notch that houses the TrueDepth camera system, and it’s 20 percent less wide than the notch used in prior iPhone models. Comparisons between the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 have confirmed that though less wide, the new notch is just a bit taller than the prior notch.

iPhone 13 vs iPhone 12 notch comparsion zooomed

Though Apple has shrunken the width of the notch to offer more screen space, iOS does not appear to be taking advantage of that extra area. There is enough space to display battery percentage on the right side of the notch on the larger iPhone 13 Pro Max, but it is not an included display feature.

ProMotion

The iPhone 13 Pro models have low-power display backlighting that has allowed Apple to implement ProMotion technology for the first time. Initially introduced in the iPad Pro in 2018, ProMotion offers adaptive refresh rates ranging from 10Hz to 120Hz.

iphone 13 promotion display

The refresh rate of the display changes based on what’s on the screen. So if you’re reading a website that’s static, the iPhone will use a lower refresh rate, but if you’re playing a game, watching a movie, or scrolling through content, you’ll see higher 120Hz refresh rates that provide a smoother and more responsive experience.

ProMotion technology is even able to accelerate and decelerate to match the speed of scrolling on the screen.

Ceramic Shield

Apple is continuing to use the “Ceramic Shield” material that delivers better drop protection for the iPhone 13 models. According to Apple, Ceramic Shield is tougher than any smartphone glass, with a dual-ion exchange process ensuring protection against scratches and everyday wear and tear.

In drop tests, iPhone 13 models have shown no improvements in durability compared to iPhone 12 models, which is not a surprise as they feature the same Ceramic Shield display and glass body.

A15 Bionic Chip

All of the iPhone 13 models use Apple’s new A15 chip, which offers performance and efficiency improvements over the A14 chip used in the iPhone 12. Apple calls the A15 chip in the iPhone 13 Pro models the “world’s fastest smartphone chip” with two performance cores and four efficiency cores.

f1631641552

The A15 chip in the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max features a 5-core GPU, which is one additional GPU core than is available in the standard iPhone 13 models. Apple says that the iPhone 13 Pro models offer up to 50 percent faster graphics performance than any other smartphone chip, which has been confirmed in Geekbench benchmarks pitting the iPhone 13 Pro’s GPU against the iPhone 12 Pro’s GPU. Comparatively, the iPhone 13 models offer 15 percent faster graphics performance.

When it comes to the CPU, all of the iPhone 13 models offer the same capabilities and are approximately 10 percent faster in single-core performance and approximately 18 percent faster in multi-core performance compared to the iPhone 12 models.

Testing by AnandTech indicates that the A15 is even faster than Apple’s own estimates and is 62 percent faster than competing smartphones.

Neural Engine

The 16-core Neural Engine is able to perform up to 15.8 trillion operations per second, and it powers features like Cinematic Mode and Smart HDR 4.

RAM

The iPhone 13 Pro models have 6GB RAM, while the iPhone 13 models have 4GB RAM. RAM has not changed from the iPhone 12 to the iPhone 13, and the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro models also had 4GB and 6GB RAM, respectively.

TrueDepth Camera and Face ID

For biometric authentication purposes, the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max use Face ID, the facial recognition system that was first introduced in 2017.

iphone 12 pro face id

Face ID works through a set of sensors and cameras. A Dot Projector projects more than 30,000 invisible infrared dots onto the surface of the skin to create a 3D facial scan that maps the curves and planes of each face, with the scan read by an infrared camera.

Face ID works in low light and in the dark, and with hats, beards, glasses, sunglasses, scarves, and other accessories that partially obscure the face.

For Face ID with a mask to work, you must be looking at your device to get it to unlock, and it does not work when wearing sunglasses.

Front-Facing Camera Features

In addition to powering facial recognition, the 12-megapixel f/2.2 camera in the TrueDepth camera system is also a front-facing selfie/FaceTime camera with many of the same features that are available for the rear-facing camera.

With the A15 chip, the iPhone 13 Pro models support many of the photographic capabilities that are available with the rear cameras, including Night mode for selfies, Smart HDR 4, Dolby Vision HDR recording, and Deep Fusion, along with ProRes and the new Cinematic Mode for capturing videos with movie-like depth of field changes.

4K video recording, QuickTake video, Slo-mo video, Portrait Mode, Portrait Lighting, and the new Photographic Styles feature for selectively applying edits are all supported.

Triple-Lens Rear Cameras

The ‌iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max include a three-lens camera system with a 77mm six-element f/2.8 Telephoto lens, a 26mm seven-element f/1.5 Wide lens, and a 13mm six-element f/1.8 Ultra Wide lens.

iphone 13 pro max cameras

Both the Wide and Telephoto lenses support dual optical image stabilization, while the Wide lens supports sensor-shift optical image stabilization.

The Wide lens features a wider aperture that lets in 2.2x more light and the largest sensor in an iPhone yet. It supports Wide color capture.

iphone 13 pro camera lenses specs

The Ultra Wide lens features a wider aperture, a faster sensor, and autofocus. The updated lens captures up to 92 percent more light, which should bring a drastic improvement in quality, and it also includes lens correction to account for distortion caused by the super wide field of view.

 

The 77mm Telephoto lens features 3x optical zoom in, up from 2.5x in the 12 Pro Max, and with the addition of the Ultra Wide lens, there is a 6x optical zoom range and support for 15x digital zoom.

There’s also a LiDAR Scanner, which is not available on the iPhone 13 and 13 mini.

Camera Features

  • Macro Photography – The Ultra Wide camera on the Pro models can focus at 2cm, which makes it ideal for macro photos. You can take macro photos or macro videos, including slow motion and time-lapse.
  • Smart HDR 4 – Recognizes up to four people in a scene and optimizes contrast, lighting, and even skin tones for each person so everyone looks their best.
  • Photographic Styles – Photographic Styles are smart, adjustable filters that can do things like boost or mute colors without affecting skin tone.Photographic Styles include Vibrant (boosts colors), Rich Contrast (darker shadows and deeper colors), Warm (accentuates golden undertones), or Cool (accentuates blue undertones). Tone and Warmth are customizable for each style, so you can get the exact look that you want.
  • Night Mode – Takes a series of images over a few seconds and aggregates them together to allow for photography in extreme low lighting situations. Night Mode on the Pro models works with Portrait Mode thanks to the LiDAR scanner, and with all three lenses.
  • Deep Fusion – Works in mid to low lighting conditions and brings out the texture and detail in the image.
  • Portrait Mode – Keeps the subject of the photo in focus while blurring the background.
  • Portrait Lighting – Changes the lighting of Portrait Mode photos with effects that include Natural, Studio, Contour, Stage, Stage Mono, High‑Key Mono.
  • Panorama – Captures panoramic shots up to 63 megapixels.
  • ProRAW – Lets users capture professional-looking photos using the ProRAW format.

Video Recording

The iPhone 13 Pro models support up to 4K video recording at 24, 25, 30, and 60 frames per second, and HDR video recording with Dolby Vision at 4K up to 60 frames per second. 1080p video recording and 720p video recording are also available.

ProRes offers high color fidelity and low compression, so file sizes are large.

iphone 12 pro cinematic mode

The iPhone 13 models offer a new Cinematic Mode that uses rack focus to seamlessly shift the focus from one subject to another when capturing video. It holds focus on the subject while blurring the background, and can automatically change the focus when a new subject is about to enter the scene. Cinematic mode works with the Wide, Telephoto, and TrueDepth cameras, and it supports Dolby Vision HDR.

Other video features include QuickTake video, audio zoom, Time-lapse, Night mode Time-lapse, continuous autofocus mode, 9x digital zoom, and the option to take 8-megapixel photos when recording 4K video.

Battery Life

Apple has improved battery life across the iPhone 13 lineup with the A15 chip and larger battery sizes.

Both iPhone 13 Pro models support fast charging and can charge to 50 percent within 30 minutes using a Lightning to USB-C cable and a 20W power adapter.

The iPhone 13 Pro Max is capable of charging at faster 27W speeds when connected to a 30W or higher USB-C power adapter. This allows the iPhone 13 Pro Max to charge slightly faster than the iPhone 12 Pro Max, but it’s not a major difference because the 27W is a peak charging speed rather than a sustained charging speed.

5G Connectivity

The iPhone 13 models, like the iPhone 12 models, support 5G networks in addition to LTE networks.

iphone 13 pro sideways

 

Sub-6GHz 5G is more widespread and available in urban, suburban, and rural areas across the United States and other countries. For the most part, when you use a 5G network, you’ll be using Sub-6GHz 5G. Sub-6GHz 5G is generally faster than LTE, but it’s still evolving and it’s not the super fast 5G you might be expecting.

5G connectivity allows for faster download and upload speeds, which speeds up everything from loading websites to downloading TV shows and movies. It also increases bandwidth for streaming services so you can watch in a higher resolution, and it brings improved FaceTime call quality. Over 5G or Wi-Fi, FaceTime calls work in 1080p. In areas where LTE speeds are slow because of the sheer number of people, 5G frees up bandwidth and reduces congestion for faster usage speeds.

5G Bands

The iPhone 13 Pro models in the United States support over 20 5G bands.

  • Sub-6GHz: 5G NR (Bands n1, n2, n3, n5, n7, n8, n12, n20, n25, n28, n29, n30, n38, n40, n41, n48, n66, n71, n77, n78, and n79)
  • mmWave: 5G NR mmWave (Bands n258, n260, n261)

LTE Bands

Along with 5G, the iPhone 13 models also support Gigabit LTE with 4×4 MIMO, so you can connect to LTE networks when 5G networks aren’t available.

  • FDD-LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 32, 66, 71))
  • TD-LTE (Bands 34, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 46, 48)

Data Saver Mode

As an example, when the iPhone is updating in the background, it uses LTE because super fast speeds aren’t necessary, but in instances where speed does matter, such as downloading a show, the iPhone 13 models swap over to 5G. There is also a setting to use 5G whenever it’s available rather than using the automatic Data Saver Mode.

Dual SIM Support

The iPhone 13 models are the first with Dual eSIM support, which means the iPhone 13 models can use two eSIMs simultaneously rather than just one eSIM and one nano-SIM. Apple’s iPhone 13 models linked to a carrier will not ship with a physical SIM card this year and carriers will instead use eSIM capabilities for activation.

Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and U1

The iPhone 13 models include an Apple-designed U1 chip that enables Ultra Wideband technology for improved spatial awareness, allowing the iPhone 13 models to precisely locate other U1-equipped Apple devices.

The U1 chip allows the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max to precisely track nearby AirTags.

As for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, the iPhone 13 Pro models support Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax).

Other Features

Speakers

The iPhone 13 Pro models have a stereo speaker at the top where the notch is located and a second stereo speaker at the bottom next to the Lightning port.

GPS and NFC

The iPhone 13 models feature support for GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS, and BeiDou location services.

MagSafe

The MagSafe charger snaps right onto the back of the iPhone 13 models and charges at 15W, which is higher than the 7.5W wireless charging available with Qi-based chargers.

iphone 13 pro magsafe

Other magnetic accessories are compatible with the magnetic ring, including cases, sleeves, snap-on wallets, and more, with third-party companies also able to make accessories for the MagSafe iPhones.

Like all iPhones, the iPhone 13 Pro models with their MagSafe technology can cause interference with medical devices like pacemakers and defibrillators. Apple recommends keeping MagSafe iPhones and all MagSafe accessories a safe distance away from implanted medical devices.

13 reviews for The Best iPhone 13 Pro, 1TB, Sierra Blue – Unlocked

  1. Charles Lloyd Rose III

    Bought unlocked from seller Avant Solutions, refurbished in “excellent condition.” Arrived a day early with charger, not apple brand but still worked. No scratches, battery health was at 97 percent, and I had no issues switching out my SIM card from my iphone XR into the new 13 pro. Worked immediately. For the price and for a refurbished phone, I couldn’t have asked for more and the faster than expected shipping was a nice surprise. I recommend this seller.

  2. Miguel

    La verdad tenía mis dudas al comprar sin ser un producto enviado por Amazon, a pesar de que se venda por la plataforma, en este caso el proveedor fue Big Box Mexico (vendido y enviado por ellos) sin embargo al recibir el equipo wow, sin palabras parece nuevo tal cual.

    – No le encontré ningún solo rasguño.
    – Algunos proveedores lo mandan con mica para tapar rayones, este no tenia mica alguna y a pesar de eso no traía ni un mínimo rayón.
    – Batería al 100%.
    – Con garantía de Apple hasta Marzo del 2023.

    Fue sin duda una EXCELENTE compra, recomendado el vendedor al 100% de momento, cualquier situación después si surge algo les mantendré actualizados.

  3. Yadira

    Leí comentarios buenos y malos, se que siempre es un riesgo comprar productos Reacondicionados pero decidí arriesgarme y sin duda fue lo mejor, el cel esta nuevo tiene garantía limitada hasta agosto del 2023, 100% de batería, se conecto a la red sin problemas, llevo usándolo una semana y todo excelente. Estéticamente sin un detalle, simplemente como nuevo. Valió la pena, encantada y feliz. Exente celular de gran calidad.

  4. Jessica Simonds

    I have tmoblie and and got a tmoblie phone and was able to set this phone up with them with a simple phone call so quick. and this phone is in perfect condition with a 100% battery life would 100/10 buy from this seller again

  5. Cliente de Amazon

    Aunque creo que como todos, compramos productos recondicionados con cierta desconfianza, me sorprendí mucho, llego todo bien, la pila al 100%, ni un solo rasguño y con apple care por un año entero, además por ser “recondicionado” me ahorré casi un 30% del costo. No suelo escribir review pero decidí hacerlo porque en mi caso ayudo leer los comentarios. Chequen bien las calificaciones del vendedor, hay unos que tienen muchas quejas.

  6. Nathaniel

    Phone is in great condition and functions perfectly. The thing that sucks the most though is the battery capacity life. It really sucked when I found out it was at 89%, only a few away from having to service it. The last iphone I had bought “Renewed” was a store model, but still had like 98% battery life.

  7. Cliente de Amazon

    Llevó un par de días usándolo y hasta el momento ha funcionado correctamente. Parece prácticamente nuevo, no tiene ningún detalle, solo tenía un poco de suciedad en la parte de la entrada lighting y en el receptor/altavoz de la parte frontal (en donde se pone la oreja para hablar). Por otro lado, la batería venía al 90%, aunque me hubiera gustado que viniera con mejor capacidad, ya que leí algunos comentarios donde se los entregaron en mejor condición. Adicional, la garantía ya está vencida 🙁
    La red 5G de Telcel funciona correctamente.

    Seguiré probando durante los siguientes días.

  8. Chris

    I just received a good condition model from seller DeCluttr. The top right of the screen is way too scratched. Good condition models should not have scratches visible from 12 inches away. Basically, the lesson is that it’s always a crapshoot getting used models. Amazon’s return policy is great but I’m a bit confused because I have to pay to ship it back and I think this is listed as having a renewal guarantee of free returns or replacement. I didn’t get a replacement offer so I just selected to return. Frustrating because I’m on a timeline and need this for a trip, and now I’m buying an Excellent condition model because I don’t have time to take another gamble on a Good condition model. I mean maybe it’s just DeCluttr breaking the rules with the misclassifying, but I’m sure other sellers sometimes have mistakes, as well. It’s just how business works, obviously.

    It’s just waaaaay too annoying for me to have to stare at those scratches everyday for the next 3+ years with this phone. Well worth the money to just return this and pay extra for a scratch free newer phone.

    As you can see, it’s a crapshoot regarding what you’ll get in the end! I understand how this works. It’s good quality but scratches on the screen like this are a complete no-go for me.

    Just purchased again an excellent condition model from netnetwork store on here (I think that’s the name) and I pretty much way over paid (alpine green isn’t as good of a deal) but it came perfect condition!

    Did come with some cheap charger and not packaged the best just stuck it in a box with a bubble wrap sleeve however it did work phone got to me with not a single bit of damage and in perfect working condition wouldn’t be able to tell it was used without the battery life being slightly drained

  10. Francisco Perez

    I was debating if I wanted to buy a renewed phone mainly because of physical condition and battery health but the phone came with no scratches and when checking the battery health it was at 100. It arrived very quick instead of a week and a half it took 3 days So far there is nothing wrong and works perfectly.

  11. KarinaSC

    El envío a NL, Mx tardó 1 semana, el teléfono esta literal nuevo y tiene garantia hasta el 2024.

  12. shelby

    I am so impressed with the seller and phone.

    I ordered an iPhone 13 Pro in excellent condition. I was so worried there would be scratched and dents on it since it was pre owned. There was not a single scratch or dent on my new phone. I could not believe how perfect it was.

    It was packaged great in an off brand box. No original Apple box. (I already knew I would not be receiving that) it did have a charger cord and base plug in. There was also a little key to open the SIM card slot.

    My battery life is 100%. I was also worried about this because others said it was less then.

    I had no issues with adding my SIM card from my old iPhone 8 Plus into the new iPhone 13 Pro. I did order an unlocked iPhone and received an unlocked iPhone.

    Over all I’m very happy with my purchase and recommend. Hopefully I covered everything.

  13. Elizardo s.

    Llego sin rasguños ni manchas, nuevecito, funciona miy bien y esta liberado para cualquier compañia, lo unico que no me gusto es la caja y como viene empaquetado..! Lo de mas esta perfecto.!
