Apple just came out with the new iPhone 14 series. Like last year, it has two Pro models, with the iPhone 14 Pro Max being the most advanced. But this year, the differences between the standard and Pro versions are much more significant. This is clear from how they look, but they don’t stop there. Because of this, many people wonder if there are many differences between the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the one that came before it.
The iPhone 13 Pro Max can bought on the street for much less than the new model. Which is why many people are considering buying it instead of the new model. But how should you decide? We’ll try to answer the question in the best way possible by comparing the specs of the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the iPhone 13 Pro Max, which came before it.

The design is the first thing that stands out as different between the iPhone 14 Pro Max and its predecessor. The new Dynamic Island has replaced the old and out-of-date notch, which is a pill-shaped punch hole. Dynamic Island used to hold the front camera and the hardware sensor for 3D facial recognition. It also used as a mini screen to show critical information about what is happening on the phone. Like most iPhones made in the last few years, the iPhone 13 Pro Max has a notch on the screen.
The back looks like the internal competitor, with a square camera module and a glass back protected by Ceramic Shield and paired with a stainless steel frame. Both phones have the IP68 certification, which means they are waterproof. You can put them in water up to 6 meters deep for up to 30 minutes without damaging them.
These phones have very similar screens, so this is almost a tie. These two phones have a Super Retina XDR OLED screen with a diagonal of 6.7 inches, a Full HD+ resolution of 1284 x 2778 pixels, a 120 Hz refresh rate, HDR10 certification, and Dolby Vision support. The only significant difference is that the iPhone 13 Pro Max can go up to 1,200 nits, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max can go up to 2,000. And, of course, the new model doesn’t have a notch (because it has Dynamic Island instead).
But we already talked about that in the last paragraph, so there’s nothing else to say about it. These devices, unlike Android phones, don’t have fingerprint readers. Instead, they use Face ID technology to recognize your face in 3D.
Details and software
The processor is another crucial difference between these two items. The iPhone 13 Pro Max powered by the Apple A15 Bionic, which is a chipset made with a 5 nm production process and has a hexa-core architecture with two Avalanche performance cores running at a max frequency of 3.23 GHz, four Blizzard energy-efficient cores running at a max frequency of 1.82 GHz, and a 5-core proprietary Apple GPU. The new Apple A16 Bionic chipset powers the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
It made with a 4 nm manufacturing process. It had a hexa-core architecture of two Everest CPUs with a maximum speed of 3.46 GHz, four Sawtooth CPUs with a top speed of 2.02 GHz, and a 5-core Apple proprietary GPU. So, the new model better performance and uses even less energy than the old one because of how it is made. The memory settings are the same for both, with up to 1 TB of internal storage and 6 GB of RAM (you can also choose 128 GB, 256 GB, or 512 GB). Last but not least, the new model comes with iOS 16, while the older one has iOS 15.
The primary camera on the back of the iPhone 14 Pro Max has also improved. It has a 48 MP primary shooter with an f/1.8 aperture and OIS. The secondary sensors are the same, with a 12 MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom and a 12 MP ultrawide lens, but the secondary sensors have different focal apertures.
The battery in the iPhone 14 Pro Max is a little bit smaller than the one in the iPhone 13 Pro Max. But it lasts longer because it better optimized and has a chipset that uses less power. The way charging works hasn’t changed.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max starts at almost €1500, about $1100. On the other hand, the iPhone 13 Pro Max can bought on the street for less than €1300, which is about $1000. Which would you choose?
