همچون دیگر محصولات دیجیتال نمی‌توانیم تا به دست ما رسیدن گوشی موبایل اپل مدل iPhone 13 Pro Max ظرفیت 512 گیگابایت صبر کنیم! قطعاً ویژگی‌های نرم‌افزاری و سخت‌افزاری موجود در این گوشی می‌توانند درهای خلاقیت بسیاری را در اختیار تولیدکنندگان محتوا و کاربران حرفه‌ای باز کنند، اما به نظر ما ارتقاء گوشی قدیمی آیفون 12 پرو مکس شما به نسخه جدید آن انتخاب منطقی نیست! البته این در صورتی است که یک کاربر عادی هستید و از ویژگی‌های نرم‌افزاری جدید فیلم‌برداری نمی‌توانید استفاده کنید، در غیر این صورت این گوشی موبایل می‌تواند انتخاب مناسبی برای شما باشد. نسخه پرو مکس آیفون 13 در مدل‌های 128 گیگابایت، 256 گیگابایت و 512 گیگابایت قابل انتخاب و خریداری است.

ویژگی‌های جدید و استفاده از پردازنده‌های قوی تنها مواردی نیست که باید به آن توجه کنیم، نسل قبلی گوشی‌های آیفون 13 پرو مکس در زمینه میزان زمان شارژدهی باتری کاملاً نشانگر ضعف کامل اپل در این زمینه بود اما حالا در آیفون 13 پرو مکس، نسبت به نسل قبلی با 1.5 درصد شارژدهی بالاتر همراه بوده‌ایم که البته میزان بسیار کمی برای یک گوشی سال است. باتری نیز بهبودیافته و تا 3 ساعت کاربری بیشتر را در اختیار کاربر خود خواهد گذاشت همچنین شایعه آیفون 13 یک ترابایتی نیز به حقیقت تبدیل شد و آیفون 13 پرو مکس در نسخه‌های 128 تا 1 ترابایتی عرضه خواهد.

در قسمت نرم‌افزار پردازش تصاویر نیز تغییراتی ایجاد شده است که از مهم‌ترین آنها می‌توان به پروفایل‌های جدید عکس‌برداری اضافه شده اشاره کرد که عملکرد آنها به فیلترهای سنتی شباهت دارد. گزارش اپل حاکی از قابلیت جدید فوکوس سینماتیک در بخش فیلم‌برداری دوربین آیفون 13 پرو مکس است که کاربران بسیاری را مشتاق خرید این گوشی موبایل کرده است، در بخش ویدئو نیز  می‌توانیم به حالت (ProRes) اشاره کنیم این قابلیت باعث می‌شود که این ویژگی ثبت و پردازش ویدئوهای (4K) را با سرعت 30 فریم در ثانیه (4K/30fps) ثبت و ذخیره‌سازی کند. حالت ProRes یک فرمت ویدئویی کیفیت بالاست که قطعاً دست کاربران و تدوین گران تصاویر را برای ادیت ویدئوها باز خواهد گذاشت، البته لازم به ذکر است که  این قابلیت در نسخه 128 گیگابایتی این گوشی موبایل حضور نخواهد داشت و کاربران با همان تصویربرداری 1080 30 فریم مواجه خواهند بود.

نمایشگر با تکنولوژی OLED در این دستگاه همانند سال گذشته یک نمایشگر 6.7 اینچی است و تغییری از نظر ابعاد و اندازه در آن ایجاد نشده است اما قسمت ناچ موجود درگوشی موبایل اپل مدل iPhone 13 Pro Max ظرفیت 128 گیگابایت کمی کوچک‌تر شده است که قطعاً در زمان استفاده از گوشی به چشم شما خواهد آمد، به گفته شرکت اپل  هر سه دوربین تصویربرداری موجود درگوشی امسال کاملاً با تغییر مواجه بوده‌اند و بسیاری از ویژگی‌های سخت‌افزاری و نرم‌افزاری در آن بهبودیافته است. لنز 12 MP, f/1.5, 26mm (wide), 1.9µm, dual pixel PDAF, sensor-shift stabilization (IBIS)، لنز دوم 12 MP, f/1.8, 13mm, 120˚ (ultrawide), PDAF و لنز سوم 12 MP, f/2.8, 77mm (telephoto), PDAF, OIS, 3x optical zoom هستند که از نظر سخت‌افزاری بهبودهایی در آن ایجاد شده است اما همچنان باید منتظر عرضه و نتیجه نهایی تصویربرداری این گوشی و دوربین‌های آن بمانیم.

سخن پایانی بالاخره بعد از شایعات، شاهد رونمایی جدید‌ترین گوشی‌های هوشمند اپل در قالب خانواده آیفون 13 بودیم. آیفون 13 پرو مکس، آیفون 13 پرو، آیفون 13 و آیفون 13 مینی به‌عنوان جدید‌ترین گوشی‌های هوشمند این شرکت معرفی شدند. آیفون 13 پرو مکس بدون شک به مشخصات فنی قدرتمند‌تری به نسبت ما‌بقی اعضای این خانواده مجهز شده است. از نظر طراحی تفاوت چندانی با نسل قبلی پرچمداران این شرکت شاهد نبودیم. تنها در نمای رو به رویی این بار اپل از ناچ با عرض کمتری به نسبت نسل قبلی بهره برده است. آیفون 13 پرو مکس به صفحه‌نمایشی 6.7 اینچی با رزولوشن 1284×2778 پیکسل مجهز شده است. برای اولین بار در تاریخ گوشی‌های هوشمند اپل، صفحه‌نمایش در نظر گرفته شده برای آیفون 13 پرو مکس توانایی ارائه نرخ بروزرسانی 120 هرتز را دارد که بدون شک می تواند صفحه‌نمایشی روان‌تر و به مراتب با‌کیفیت‌تری با نسبت نسل های قبلی ارائه می‌کند. این صفحه‌نمایش توانایی ارائه حداکثر روشنایی 1200 نیت (شمع در متر مربع) را دارد که همین امر سبب می شود تا در شرایط نوری متنوع و حتی زیر تابش مستقیم نور خورشید هم، وضوح تصویر بسیار خوبی دارد. در قسمت پشتی سه سنسور دوربین به همراه یک سنسور LIDAR با همان طراحی آیفون 12 پرو مکس قرار گرفته‌اند. یک سنسور دوربین اصلی با رزولوشن 12 مگاپیکسلی با گشودگی دریچه دیافراگم f/1.5، سنسور دوربین 12 مگاپیکسلی از نوع فوق عریض (Ultra Wide) و سنسور 12 مگاپیکسلی از نوع تله فوتو، دوربین سه‌گانه آیفون 13 پرو مکس را تشکیل می دهند. پردازنده A15 بایونیک هم این‌بار قدرتمند تر از همیشه متشکل از شش هسته (2 هسته قدرتمند‌تر و 4 هسته با صرفه انرژی کمتر) این پرچمدار قدرتمند را همراهی می‌کند. آیفون 13 پرو مکس در چهار مدل با حافظه‌‌های داخلی 128/256/512 گیگابایت در کنار مدل جدید با حافظه‌داخلی 1 ترابایت معرفی شد. برخی از آيفون‌های وارد شده به بازار ایران از نوع اکتیو بوده که این مدل هم نوع اکتیو است. با توجه به شرایط تحریمی و برای جلوگیری از غیرفعال شدن گوشی، این مدل به صورت فعال شده از کشورهای آسیای شرقی مانند هنگ کنگ و سنگاپور وارد کشور شده است. به اینصورت که گوشی برای لحظاتی روشن و دوباره پلمپ شده تا برای واردات و استفاده در ایران مشکلی وجود نداشته باشد.

شرکت اپل به طور رسمی جذاب‌ترین عضو خانواده آیفون 13 را در تاریخ 23 شهریور رونمایی کرد، گوشی موبایل اپل مدل iPhone 13 Pro Max ظرفیت 128 گیگابایت پرچمدار جدید این شرکت است که نام آن را قطعاً در هفته‌های آتی بیشتر خواهید شنید؛ نمایشگر 120 هرتزی و تراشه A15 Bionic مهم‌ترین ویژگی‌های سخت‌افزاری این دستگاه است که این محصول را منحصربه‌فرد کرده است، اما شاید بتوان این دو ویژگی را به همراه ویژگی سخت‌افزاری جدید دوربین تنها مواردی دانست که امسال به این گوشی‌های موبایل اضافه شده‌اند، ازاین‌رو بسیاری از کاربران ترجیح داده‌اند تا آیفون 12 خود را نگه‌داشته او امسال هزینه‌ای برای ارتقای آن نپردازند.

طرف‌داران اپل بار دیگر با معرفی پرچمدار جدید سری گوشی‌های آیفون به دنبال خرید آن هستند، اما این گوشی موبایل چه تغییرات و ویژگی‌های جدیدی را درون خود جای‌داده است؟ آیا این گوشی موبایل ارزش خرید و ارتقاء از مدل قبلی خود را دارد یا خیر؟ اگر شما نیز کنجکاوید تا جواب این سؤالات را بدانید با بررسی گوشی موبایل اپل مدل iPhone 13 Pro Max ظرفیت 128 گیگابایت همراه شوید.

خرید گوشی موبایل اپل مدل iPhone 13 Pro Max ظرفیت 128 گیگابایت

هرچند گوشی قبلی اپل نیز بدون مشکل نبوده است و خبرهای بسیاری از خرابی باتری آن به گوش رسیده است، موضوعی که در دست دیگر ارزش خرید یک گوشی جدید همچون این مدل را افزایش داده است. آیفون پرچمدار جدید با چیپ قدرتمندتر و نمایشگر بهبودیافته رونمایی شده است که نمایشگر این دستگاه نرخ رفرش ریت 120 هرتزی را در اختیار کاربر خود خواهد گذاشت، این پنل نمایشی همچنین توانایی رسیدن به 1000 نیت روشنایی را در حداکثر حالت خود خواهد داشت که قطعاً در زمان استفاده از این گوشی موبایل در محیط بیرون بسیار کاربردی خواهد بود. قابلیت پروموشن (Promotion) قابلیت جدیدی است که امکان تغییر رفرش ریت بین 10 تا 120 هرتز را فراهم می‌کند و کاربر می‌تواند از میان چند میزان مشخص میزان نرخ به‌روزرسانی نمایشگر خود را انتخاب نماید. لازم به ذکر است که هرچه این میزان بالاتر باشد تصاویری نرم‌تر را از نمایشگر خود دریافت خواهید کرد ولی مصرف باتری شما نیز به همان میزان افزایش خواهد یافت.

اما ویژگی اصلی این گوشی تراشه جدید استفاده شده در آن است، اپل برای  گوشی موبایل اپل مدل iPhone 13 Pro Max ظرفیت 128 گیگابایت از تراشه جدید A15 Bionic استفاده کرده که قدرت پردازش بسیار بالاتر، مصرف پایین‌تر و البته دمای تولیدی بسیار پایینی را برای این گوشی به ارمغان آورده است، این پردازنده یک تراشه 15 نانومتری است که 15 میلیارد ترانزیستور را در خود جای‌داده است و به گفته اپل قوی‌ترین تراشه موبایل مجود در بازار است، البته باید منتظر دیگر شرکت‌ها همچون سامسونگ برای معرفی تراشه‌های جدید نیز باشیم تا بتوانیم این سخن اپل را تأیید یا تکذیب کنیم اما آنچه مشخص است قابلیت‌های بسیار و پیشرفت بسیار مناسب اپل در زمینه استفاده و گرد هم آوری تکنولوژی‌های برتر ساخت تراشه در این گوشی موبایل و تراشه جدید آن است.

Incipio picked up the Kate Spade brand, so you're basically getting a decent Incipio case with fashion sensibility. These are obviously geared toward women, but I did appreciate their eye-catching designs -- and there are plenty more to choose from (and some, like the middle pictured, are MagSafe cases).

One feature that's missing is MagSafe compatibility. The iGlaze uses Moshi's SnapTo mounting system (a car and wall mount are sold separately).

Cropping in to 100% on those images reveals an interesting difference though. The S21 Ultra's image looks sharper, as the phone has applied a lot of digital sharpening to preserve the details. When viewed up close like this, it almost looks like some of the building details have been gone round with a pen. By comparison, the iPhone's shot looks less sharp when zoomed in. If you're sharing your image straight from your phone, you probably want the sharper shot and would be very happy with what the S21 has produced.

It's exactly the same story here. The S21 Ultra displays more magentas in its scene; the iPhone 12 Pro Max leans more into the greens. Neither is exactly better than the other here, although the S21 has brightened some of the details slightly on the cannon. It's subtle, but it helps bring out some of the natural textures of the old ironwork. 

Earlier Mous cases had a SIM card storage slot on the inside of the smartphone case for international travelers in the habit of swapping SIM cards. However, these don't.

Incipio also makes cases under the Coach brand and they manage to live up to the quality you might expect. They aren't cheap, but they also aren't insanely expensive.

Switching to the superwide mode, both phones have captured extremely vibrant scenes here, with a great balance between the bright blue sky and the more shadowy areas around the bushes. The white balance differences are evident again, with the S21 Ultra leaning still on the magenta side. However, I also think the iPhone has gone too far the other way, with a more noticeable green color cast in the clouds and in the building.

LifeProof, like several other case-makers, has become more green in recent years. The Wave is made with 85% ocean-based recycled plastic, while LifeProof's other cases are made with 45-50% recycled plastic. 

Let's say you already know you want an iPhone, specifically the Pro version, and let's say you're not interested in waiting around for the iPhone 13. (Apple's next flagship lineup should be here very soon, and it's starting to look very cool but once we find out the price, Apple's previous lineups will likely go on sale.) For those who have their eye on a Pro or Pro Max, the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 are still two great options.

There are noticeable color differences again on this outdoor scene, with the S21 Ultra producing a more cyan-toned sky that looks a little unnatural to me. That said, the S21 has also made the church itself brighter, which helps it stand out from the scene much more. 

Display size, resolution

Cropping into both images to 100%, it's also possible to see that the iPhone's camera provides a lot more detail in its image -- pay particular attention to the detail on the large foreground column on the left. It's surprising, as both shots are 12 megapixels. (The iPhone only does 12 megapixels, whereas the S21 Ultra downsamples its 108-megapixel sensor into 12-megapixel shots, a process called pixel binning.)

With so many devices, it can get a little confusing to understand what makes these handsets different from each other. In general, the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini are the two most affordable phones in the lineup and have dual rear cameras. The two Pro models are the highest-end and priciest iPhones. In addition to a third telephoto camera, they also have a lidar scanner for modeling and object detection.

I've received many case samples and this is currently one of my favorites. OtterBox owns LifeProof and you can certainly see (excuse the pun) the influence on LifeProof's See MagSafe case, which arguably has a slightly cleaner look and better lines than OtterBox's Symmetry Series cases.

But it's the zoom that really separates these two and it's worth thinking about how often you've wanted to zoom in closer when you've taken photos before. It really does add a whole new option for composing your images that the iPhone simply can't provide and means that you're walking around with a more complete photography kit bag, ready for any scene you come across. If you've ever found the 2x zoom on your old phone lacking, the S21 Ultra may well be the camera for you.  

Despite these upgrades, Apple didn't increase the starting price tag across any of its new iPhones, running contrary to some widely circulated rumors. The iPhone 13 Pro starts at $999 (£949, AU$1,699), while the iPhone 13 Pro Max starts at $1,099 (£1,049, AU$1,849) for the base 128GB model. Meanwhile, Apple has decided to discontinue the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, though refurbished models are still available on Apple's online store.

Twelve South has been making folio-style iPhone wallet cases in the shape of vintage books for several years and the design comes to the iPhone 13, 13 Pro, and 13 Pro Max. The Book Book is actually two cases in one. There's an inner case with MagSafe that adheres magnetically to the outer cover, which has a magnetic clasp to keep it shut. You can store a few credits and some cash in the outer cover's interior slots.

Griffin's Survivor cases once shared some similarities with OtterBox's Defender cases. They were tough but bulky. The new Survivor cases are slimmed down but retain a good portion of their tough identity, with some models, like the Survivor Endurance for MagSafe (pictured left), featuring 14-foot drop protection and a raised-edge bezel for both the screen and camera cutout. It also has a nice grip to it.

There's also a more affordable Sport version for $40 that's equipped with MagSafe as well (it's not a leather case, however, but does look pretty slick).

No drop rating is listed for the case, but Spigen's transparent cases feel like they offer reasonable protection. If you want a tough case with stronger protection, the Spigen Tough Armor case, which includes a kickstand, is an option for $17, but I personally prefer Spigen's Ultra Hybrid cases (the Ultra Hybrid S also has an integrated kickstand).

A top MagSafe case, the Aneu is fairly slim yet feels durable and solid. It also has a slight grip to it with raised screen bumpers to help keep your screen from cracking when falling face down. I personally like the case in dark blue (pictured) and red (not pictured).

Apple's latest phone lineup includes the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max. All four models feature 5G connectivity, a magnetic backing branded as MagSafe that can attach to a number of accessories and a new Ceramic Shield display that promises to be more durable. Only the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini come in Apple's springy purple color. 

Note that all the new iPhone 13 models are equipped with Apple's MagSafe feature, which offers faster wireless charging with compatible chargers. It also supports optional accessories -- including Magsafe wallet, mini wallets and various mounts -- that adhere magnetically to the back of your phone. Like the iPhone 12, the iPhone 13 has "an array of magnets" (Apple says they're recycled) embedded around a charging coil that can pull up to 15 watts of power. 

OtterBox's Aneu Series cases were among my favorites for the iPhone 12 and the company has redesigned the Aneu for the iPhone 13. It now has an exposed ring on the back to better highlight that it is a MagSafe case (the previous version had MagSafe but it was hidden).

Rokform's been making tough iPhone cases for years and aside from their durability, their key feature is the ability to use them with various mounts -- including bike and motorcycle mounts -- that are sold separately. I personally prefer the Crystal series but the Rugged case is slightly more, well, rugged. The new iPhone 13 models are also MagSafe cases, so they cost $10 more than the iPhone 12 models.

The case costs $39, which seems like a lot considering how thin it is, but it is eco-friendly (it's compostable) and does have a raised "lip" around the camera that prevents damage to the camera lens, Totallee says.

The S21 Ultra takes things further though. Much further. Its 10x optical zoom vastly outstrips what the iPhone's 2.5x zoom can achieve and the results are clear to see here. Being able to zoom right in with the S21 has made the dramatic Fettes College the focus of the image, eliminating all of the cluttering details like the buildings and cars that remain present in the iPhone's shot.

Raptic's cases come in a variety of styles and cost a little less than competing premium cases from Speck and OtterBox. Both the Raptic Air (left), which I personally like best, is $30. So is the thicker Raptic Shield (middle). The Terrain (right, in blue) is $40, but it's the only one of these three that is fully made in America and biodegradable.

I wasn't a fan of earlier Pelican cases, which were very protective but just a little too bulky (and ugly), but in the last few years (starting with the iPhone 11), the company (which is now owned by Case-Mate) added slimmer designs -- including the Protector, which is now a MagSafe case.

The Overture (middle -- $50), is a two-in-one folio wallet case that converts into a stand for video watching. You fit your iPhone into a slim shell case that then magnetically adheres to the cover, which has slots for storing credit cards and cash. It's one of the nicer folio cases available. It's available in black or pink.

Which camera is better is not an easy question to answer. Fundamentally, they're both superb, being able to take vibrant images with excellent dynamic range. It's close, but generally I prefer shots taken on the iPhone as they tend to have more natural colors and less digital sharpening. I tend to edit all my images, however, so I like a more natural base image to work with -- you may prefer a more finished image to share straight out of camera.

They're relatively slim, sleek-looking cases that offer decent protection and come in a variety of design patterns, with some definite appeal to teenagers. Some of the designs are hit-or-miss, but I liked the samples I got. I should note that prices appear to have gone up: Casetify cases now start at $55.

The good news is that you don't have to buy a super protective iPhone 13 case like the OtterBox Defender to get good protection. Most cases are reasonably thin and still offer at least 6-foot drop protection. I did include one very thin case on this list for those who prefer minimal protection. Before you go with a case like that, just remember how much your phone costs -- but it is better than having no case at all. Make sure you get a sound tempered glass screen protector for your iPhone 13 model to prevent deep scratches and safeguard the screen.

Details look to be pretty similar between these shots. The S21 Ultra's shot is again a bit more magenta, but in this scene I actually prefer the white balance shift as it gives a slight sunset feel. 

No (Face ID) Watch this:

I personally prefer less sharpening to be added by default, however, as this can quickly degrade the image if you want to do more artistic edits later in apps like Adobe Lightroom. In other words, I prefer less digital sharpening on my images so that I can apply my own sharpening later, should I want to. If you're not quite so into your image editing, this likely won't be a problem for you.

MagSafe cases can get pretty pricey, but If you're looking for a inexpensive clear MagSafe case for your new iPhone 13 series phone, Spigen's Ultra Hybrid Mag is a good value at around $20. Spigen also sells a non-Mag version of this case for about $5 less and has several other iPhone 13 case options. I also tried the Spigen Mag Armor case but found that accessories stick better to the Ultra Hybrid Mag.

The drawback to the Book Book is that while it's certainly eye-catching and cool in a vintage book way, it's pretty bulky. The good news is that when you streamline things, you can simply remove the inner case from book cover and have a standard MagSafe case.

Or maybe you already have an iPhone 11 Pro or 11 Pro Max and are trying to decide whether to trade it in for something from Apple's iPhone 12 lineup. The iPhone 12 Pro starts at $999, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max starts at a cool $1,099. Apple discontinued the 11 Pro and Pro Max when the iPhone 12 line was announced, but you can still find the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max at a discount at various retailers, sometimes as low as $625.

I've always been a fan of Moshi's iPhone cases and all its top cases are available for all the iPhone 13 models. The Altra (left -- $45), available in three color options, is the most distinct-looking and has a geometric rubber finish that makes your phone nice and grippy. It also includes a lanyard (the little loop that the lanyard clips onto can be removed when you're not using the lanyard).

At 3x zoom on the S21 Ultra and 2.5x zoom on the iPhone 12 Pro Max, it's evident that the zoom amount is very similar (the S21 Ultra's 3x zoom is equivalent to a 72mm zoom lens on a 35mm camera, while the iPhone's is equivalent to 68mm).

Speck has brought many of its iPhone 12 case designs to the iPhone 13, including such popular transparent models as the Presidio Perfect-Clear and Perfect-Clear with Grips, and the Presidio2 Pro (the pink one above). Speck's grip case with built-in MagSafe cost $10 more. (I'm partial to MagSafe cases because they give you the option to attach a MagSafe accessory directly to the case, not your phone.)

However, if you want to use those MagSafe accessories without taking your phone out of its case, you need a phone case that's equipped with MagSafe support. The MagSafe symbol is a circle with a short pipe below it. You can see it on clear cases, but it's embedded on the inside of the case so if it's nontransparent, you'll only see it from the inside.

These Caseology cases aren't equipped with MagSafe but they're nice cases for their modest price.

It costs $15-$17, depending on the color.

I personally like cases that aren't too thick but offer decent drop protection, with a lip over the edge of the screen (sometimes referred to as a "screen bumper") and raised corners that help prevent your screen from cracking if your phone should fall face down. A folio case will more fully protect your screen.

My last test was this still-life scene, which I set up in an extremely dark room. The iPhone 12 Pro Max quite comfortably takes the win here -- its shot is brighter and with less image noise than the image from the S21 Ultra. I also appreciated that the iPhone automatically switches into night mode when it needs to, whereas I had to go into More and then select a specific night mode on the S21. It's a small point, but Apple has always had an intuitive user interface, which does make it quicker to get shots.

Note that the cases pictured here are for the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro, but the iPhone 13 cases look almost identical.

The dimensions for the iPhone 13 phones are similar to their iPhone 12 counterparts -- however, the newer models come with notable design changes to the camera bump on the back, and they're slightly thicker overall. Even though the iPhone 13 is more of a refresh than a full redesign of the iPhone 12, when it comes to a case, even minor differences can prevent a good fit. You'll have to get a new one for whatever iPhone 13 model you buy, including the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max.

The iPhone 12 Pro Max has wowed us with its ability to take stunning photos that can rival what you might see from a professional DSLR. But Samsung's Galaxy S21 Ultra also packs an incredible camera array, boasting mind-bending zoom capabilities that comfortably outstrip what Apple offers in its phone. So how do these two cameras stack up and which should you consider if you're really into your photography? I headed across the beautiful Scottish city of Edinburgh to find out.

In general, yes -- about $10 more. There are some more affordable MagSafe cases that cost around $20, but most cost upwards of $30. We see cases from certain companies that are essentially the same, but one has MagSafe and the other doesn't. The MagSafe version usually sells for $10 more. It may seem like a little too much to pay for something that doesn't seem like much of an upgrade, but in time MagSafe compatibility may command less of a "tax."

Note that a lot of these cheaper clear cases have a habit of turning yellow and degrading over time (and becoming less translucent), but they're cheap enough that you probably won't mind shelling out for a replacement case for your Apple iPhone if that happens.

KerfCase has been making handmade wooden cases for a while, and its new Plywood case is not only more durable but less expensive, starting at $50 with 6-foot drop protection and a limited lifetime repair warranty. I like it better than other wood cases I've tried. It's also worth noting that Apple's MagSafe charger will stick to the back of it (it is equipped with MagSafe), and KerfCase sells a matching charging dock for the Apple MagSafe charger along with a $100 magnetic wireless charging stand that's pretty sweet.

Apple has taken the wraps off the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, its new luxe smartphones meant to succeed the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The announcement was made at Apple's product launch event in September, where the company also unveiled the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini. The latest Pro models offer some new design features, including a smaller notch, but the biggest changes include longer battery life, three new cameras, a 120Hz display and a maximum storage capacity of 1TB, which is double the storage in last year's Pro models. If you want specific numbers, scroll down to the bottom of this page to see a side-by-side specs chart.  

Most of these picks are based on the positive experiences I've had with the same brands on the iPhone 12 series (and previous models). I'll be updating this list of the best iPhone 13 cases with new options as they arrive. I try to include a variety of styles from slimmer to more protective models, as well as ones that offer full-screen protection and nifty features like a built-in kickstand or wallet. Many of these links go straight to the manufacturer's website for now, but the cases should appear at Amazon and other retailers in the near future.

Trading in to Apple will bring the price of an iPhone 12 down considerably -- as much as $500 in savings for an 11 Pro trade-in, or $540 for a Pro Max -- but then again, keeping your old phone for another year is free. Apple made several improvements to its iPhone 12 lineup, (most notably adding 5G -- oh, and it also comes in purple) but are the phone's newer tricks worth the cash? The answer depends on what's important to you. Let's compare Apple's 2019 and 2020 Pro flagships on design, camera, performance and more.

The Endurance for MagSafe comes in three colors for $50. Those looking for a more affordable option can take a look at the $30 Survivor Strong (pictured right) or the $20 Survivor Clear. Neither of those cases features MagSafe.

If you're looking for a case that comes with a connectable cord and can be worn as a neck strap or as a crossbody strap, the Bitplay Wander is worth checking out. It also comes in clear or a smoke color and Bitplay makes other accessories for it. The Wander offers good drop protection and it's easy to get the strap on and off the case thanks to the velcro at the end (yes, the strap stays on the case securely).

Similar to its predecessor, the iPhone Pro Max 13 offers a massive 6.7-inch screen and a nearly identical look and feel. But Apple's newest model offers a 120Hz display, longer battery life and new cameras, and storage capacity has been extended to a whopping 1TB for the first time.

Totallee also makes a very slim clear TPU case (pictured left) that offers a little more protection for the same price. I like that one better, but it is slightly thicker.

Top inexpensive MagSafe case

Element's Black Ops cases are really expensive but they certainly are unique. The $250 Black Ops X4 is available for the iPhone 13, 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max and has a retractable kickstand and removable "magazine" for storing credit credits and cash. When you remove the magazine, it exposes the back of your phone so you can wirelessly charge your iPhone with an Apple MagSafe Charger or another small magnetic wireless charging puck.

Like previous Element Black Ops cases, this one features precision CNC machining MIL-SPEC armored protection. If you can't afford this Element case, the company makes the more affordable Special Ops case ($50), a nice polycarbonate MagSafe case that offers good drop protection.

OtterBox's Commuter case offers raised bezel protection, is also pretty slim and has grips on the back. I'm a fan of that model, which also comes in a version with MagSafe for $10 more.
