The Apple September event is nearly upon us, making an iPhone 14 Pro Max vs. iPhone 13 Pro Max comparison more relevant than ever. At that event, Apple will likely introduce its latest iPhones, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max figures to be the top device in the iPhone 14 lineup.
After all, the iPhone 13 Pro Max currently claims that title. It’s the best phone you can buy right now, and it’s the winner of the Tom’s Guide Award 2022 for the best phone of the past year. Topping the iPhone 13 Pro Max figures to be a tall order, even for a phone maker with Apple’s track record of rolling out improved devices every fall.
Based on the iPhone 14 Pro rumors we’ve heard in the build-up to this fall’s release, though, Apple may be up to the task. The Pro lineup is tipped to get the most substantial upgrades among Apple’s newest handsets and as the biggest and most expensive model, the iPhone 13 Pro Max should reap the most benefits from that strategy.
We won’t know how the new Pro Max model compares to its predecessor until Apple officially unveils the iPhone 14 lineup. But thanks to the steady stream of rumors about Apple’s upcoming iPhone plans, we have a pretty good idea of the iPhone 14 Pro Max vs. iPhone 13 Pro Max differences.
iPhone 14 Pro Max vs. iPhone 13 Pro Max price
Let’s get the bad news out of the way first — you’re probably going to pay more for the iPhone 14 Pro Max than you would have paid for the same-sized iPhone Pro model last year. Multiple rumors indicate that the price of the iPhone 14 Pro models is going up by $100. That would mean the iPhone 14 Pro would start at the iPhone 13 Pro Max’s debut price of $1,099 while the iPhone 14 Pro Max itself would cost $1,199. That’s as much as Samsung charges for the Galaxy S22 Ultra, the nearest competitor to the iPhone Pro Max model.
