The catch? You will need to buy the iPhone 13 Pro Max outright. Then grab a SIM of your choice to make a saving in the long run. How much is the iPhone 13 Pro Max SIM-free unlocked? Pricing starts from $1,099, £1,049, AU$1,849.
This is not a cheap phone, sure, but what you get for your money helps justify that. Apple has managed to fit a bigger battery and new, more efficient and faster A15 Bionic chip, which combine to add 2.5 hours more life than last year's model. Impressive when you consider the 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR screen can output a whopping 1,200 nits of brightness.
The cameras are also improved with a triple lens setup that now lets in more light than ever for far better night shots and clearer day photography. Video is improved with enhanced features like the new Cinematic mode, which is sort of doing for video – in terms of automation – what the Bokeh blur did for Portrait mode in photos.
The iPhone 13 will save you money over this model but you're taking a hit on screen size, battery performance and camera abilities.
