I don't like the new sierra blue color, 12pro pacific blue is a lot better color. Do the 13 pro have the same camera as 13 pro max?

That’s pretty good. I’ve actually been happy with my 12 Pro Max battery life until recently. Suddenly my battery health has dropped to 91%. My wife’s 3 year old XS still has 90% battery health and my dad’s XS Max has 94% battery health. I’m starting to wonder if I have a defective battery as it has never been exposed to extreme temperatures.

The ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro Max supports up to 28 hours of video playback, up to 25 hours of streaming video playback, and up to 95 hours of video playback.

I think that should be 95 hours of audio playback?

Battery life seems to be one of the key upgrades compared to the 12 series. Battery life on my 12 Pro Max is pretty good. Other than that there is not much of a reason to upgrade from the 12 series.

I don’t buy the amazing battery life based on how much they skirted around it I. The keynote. Saying it’s better than your old model even with improvements… it should be better than the older model and it should be better with improvements. It’s called an improvement.

if it was such a breakthrough with the Pro Max battery life why not just boast the figures. That sells. Just saying it’s an improvement is an expectation.

Or they use the phone less and in a different manner than you do.
