iPhone 11 Pro vs iPhone 13 Pro Comparison

Apple Pro phones usually give you more features and upgraded specs, but how do they compare between generations. Let’s dive into the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro, which were released two years apart in 2019 and 2021 respectively.


Camera

Both the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro offer triple rear cameras with 12 MP, buth the 13 Pro has improved optical zoom up to 3x compared to 2x on the 12 Pro. Aside from that, the 13 Pro has a few extra features such as Night Mode and Deep Fusion that deliver improved low-light photos. In general, the 13 Pro also captures more light than the 11 Pro, which will give you brighter and more vibrant photos.

Battery

The battery life of both phones is quite similar, however, the 13 Pro has a slightly larger battery at 3125 mAh compared to 3190 mAh on the 11 Pro. That doesn’t mean much on paper, but since the iPhone 13 is paired with a more energy efficient processor, you’ll find that it can deliver up to 4 more hours of battery life on average than the iPhone 11 Pro. Both, however, have enough juice to get you through the day on a full charge.

Display

With 6.1 inches and 1170 x 2532 px, you’ll find a bigger display screen and slightly improved resolution in the 13 Pro. Comparatively, the 12 Pro offers a 5.8 inch screen and 1125 x 2436 px resolution. You might not notice much between screen quality, but the 13 Pro can produce higher brightness levels and it should run smoother with twice the refresh rate (120 Hz vs 60 Hz on the 12 Pro).

Storage Options

You’ll likely find whatever storage option you need between the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro models, but Apple upgraded the iPhone 13 Pro to include an option of 1TB. That’s a massive amount of storage for a smartphone and will likely only be useful for the biggest movie buffs who need the additional storage to download content on the go.

Processor

Unsurprisingly, you’ll find a processor chipset that’s 2 generations ahead on the iPhone 13 Pro compared to the iPhone 11 Pro. The iPhone 13 Pro A15 chip delivers some of the fastest performances on the market, which will be more noticeable when you’re playing fast-paced games or working on video or photo edits. That said, the A13 chipset on the iPhone 11 Pro is still a great processor for the average user.


Overall, despite the iPhone 13 Pro being more advanced and having upgraded features, you’re going to get the best bang for your buck with the iPhone 11 Pro. That said, if you want a phone with upgraded camera quality, screen quality and battery life, then the iPhone 13 Pro is still a great choice.
