These dimensions result in a weight of 204g, making this model significantly lighter than the iPhone 13 Pro Max weighing 240g.
A15 Bionic Chip
iPhones are known for being super fast and responsive, but now even more so with the fastest chip on the market. The 6 RAM A15 chip sports a new 6-core CPU with 2 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores. For the more tech-minded readers, you'll also like to know the chip includes a new 5 core GPU and a new 16 core Neural Engine.

The fast-charge capability allows you to charge your iPhone up to 50% in around 30 minutes with a 20W adapter or higher. Charging is even easier with the MagSafe and Qi wireless charging options.
Get the most advanced iPhone camera set-up to date! The iPhone 13 Pro's cameras have been updated from the iPhone 12 now with a 3x optical zoom. Apple also made improvements to the night mode when shooting in super-wide-angle.
Improve your nighttime and low light photography with Apple's largest sensor and widest aperture. These features let the light in, which creates optimum focus in low light conditions.
The LiDAR Scanner makes portraits in night mode super easy with excellent results. You can also enjoy night mode for the telephoto camera.
Apple has also enhanced the macro mode for super up-close photography as close as 2cm from the lens. You will have every camera feature you would need to take professional quality photos with your iPhone 13 Pro.
Other camera features include sapphire crystal lens covers, six and seven-element lenses and True Tone flash with Slow Sync.
Apple has also developed the newest style of video capture with the innovative cinematic mode, popular for vloggers and social media posts.

You can finally shoot video in macro mode! With a super powerful macro lens that can focus just 2cm away from an object, you can get clear, crisp macro footage also in slow motion and time-lapse for the very first time.
Now you can take 8MP photos while recording in 4k so you don't have to sacrifice the resolution of your photos by taking a screenshot of the video. Your videos will be condensed into easy-to-view and editable files with playback zoom.
Get stunning crisp images and colours with a Super Retina XDR display. With 2523 x 1170 pixel resolution at 460 PPI, HDR display and True Tone and Wide colour (P3), you'll get the best and brightest display on the market.

If you prefer a larger iPhone model with longer battery life, you can upgrade to the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
