Final Thought

After the launch of this device, it immediately becomes not just the best iPhone ever announced but also top the list of best smartphones for various features and capabilities.

For example, iPhone 13 Pro Max has one of the best battery endurance of any smartphone. Alongside other phones in its family such as the iPhone 13 Pro, it has the most powerful processor.

While this is a great device, it is a 6.7-inches in screen size, and that may be too much for some people. This is why there is also iPhone 13 mini with a 5.4-inches screen size and I have recently published a write-up about what it also has and does not have.
