An upgrade from the iPhone 11 Pro Max to an iPhone 13 would be a great upgrade path. The iPhone 11 Pro Max features a 6.5” display and the iPhone 13 features a 6.1” display. But the smaller display size also means the iPhone 13 is smaller in overall size, and more pocketable. Other highlights of the iPhone 13 include an Apple A15 Bionic chip, 5G connectivity, and more color options, such as the new Starlight and Blue options. The iPhone 13 also features a 12MP TrueDepth camera on the front, and a dual 12MP (wide and ultra-wide) camera on the back with Smart HDR 4 for photos, a Photographic Styles mode, and a Cinematic mode for recording videos.
