iPhone 13 Pro Max vs iPhone 14 Pro Max


What does the new iPhone 14 Pro Max will bring and how does it differ from the already excellent iPhone 13 Pro Max?

The iPhone 14 Pro Max is the first iPhone to have a new type of display cutout called "Dynamic Island", replacing the notch design that has been in use since the iPhone X was introduced in 2017. Along with the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro models add bidirectional satellite connectivity to contact emergency services when out of range of Wi-Fi and cellular networks. iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models (as well as the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus) sold in the United States dropped support for physical SIM cards, making them the first iPhone models since the CDMA variant of the iPhone 4 to not come with a discrete SIM card reader.

Here are what we've collected about the concrete differences between the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the iPhone 13 Pro Max:

  1. Dynamic Island replaces the notch
  2. Faster A16 Bionic chip
  3. Improved display with 1Hz refresh rate and Always-On function
  4. New 48MP main camera
  5. 4K Cinematic video, new Action Mode stabilization
  6. Satellite connectivity
  7. Same battery life, same charging speeds


Overall, the iPhone 14 Pro Max with a 6.7-inch OLED screen is a powerful phone. With the new always-on screen, Dynamic Island, considerable camera upgrades and A16 Bionic chipset, the iPhone 14 Pro Max has Pro-level powerful features. It is a good choice for a new phone.
