Like the iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Pro comes with a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display. This screen doesn’t feature the best pixels-per-inch rating of the entire iPhone 13 range – for that, look at the iPhone 13 mini– but it does feature 460ppi, and the image quality is correspondingly crisp.

Google's current top-dog comes close to the iPhone 13 Pro, in terms of camera prowess and serves up a clean Android user experience, plus superb battery life.
Then there’s Apple's ProRes video: a video format that’s designed to be easier to edit, and kinder on your computer when you move footage from your phone to a computer to edit it, without damaging the video’s quality. On the front of the phone is a 12MP f/2.2 wide camera (‘wide’ being what Apple calls its primary phone cameras, as distinct from ‘ultra-wide’), which we found worked well during video calls and for shooting the odd selfie. It isn’t as feature-laden as the rear camera, but it’s simple to fire up options like Portrait mode and get a great shot. The iPhone 13 Pro also offers a fantastic camera experience, with a versatile array of cameras that can handle both daytime and night shooting with ease. The telephoto and macro cameras mean you can shoot at a variety of distances, too.
The main camera is great, and while it may not look very different to the iPhone 12 Pro’s primary camera on paper, it does offer some important upgrades that make it one of the best smartphone cameras. On lower-use days, the phone would generally have 10-20% left when we put it on charge at the end of the day – this is remarkably better battery life than we’ve seen on the iPhone 12 Pro and other Pro handsets before it.
We’ve found the iPhone 13 Pro is capable of lasting a full day of normal usage. If you push your phone slightly harder, you may find that it needs recharging before the end of the day.These differences won’t be especially noticeable in everyday usage, but if you’re pushing your phone to its limits you may find that you appreciate that extra bit of grunt the iPhone 13 Pro is able to offer. The right-hand edge of the handset houses the power button, while the left-hand side is home to the mute slider, volume buttons and SIM tray. On the bottom edge of the handset are the speakers, and a Lightning port for charging.
