Hi for those who've had the 13 pro and 13 pro max, can you let me know what sort of screen on time you are getting a few months after owning them? Thanks
iPhone 13 Pro since launch day. On a really good day, I can get between 6-7hs SOT. On a really bad day. I have seen it drop down to est 4hr SOT. I have yet to kill the battery in a day mind. On average I can get down to about 30% ish before I charge overnight and have 100% in the morning.

No doubt the Pro Max will be better.

13 to max since launch. According to the battery app in the last 2 weeks I've averaged 9.5hrs Perday screen on and the lowest the battery has dropped to before charging was 28%

No, I’m fairly sure it’s always been just a single push to power the phone on. I don’t turn it off fully very often but have just done it a couple of times to check and I’m pretty sure that’s the behaviour I remember on all iPhones.

I think it’s something to do with ‘iPhone Findable After Power Off’? Have you tried the ‘Temporarily Turn Off Finding’ option and see if the iPhone turns on with one press?

I am on iPhone 11 + SE(2020) from work

Kids have an iPhone 6 plus / iPhone 7 plus.

I got my wife a 13 pro max for her birthday in September. She watches Youtube almost every waking hour of the day! It's worth a better battery for her and bigger screen.

I'd love USB-C. Although I quite like the wireless charging with the newer phones.

Upgraded from a iPhone 8 Plus to a 13 Pro (also 256gb) two months ago, after having the 8 plus a few years - roughly since the iPhone X came out.

The main highlights / differences to me are the Screen (the resolution + 120hz refresh rate), cameras, FaceID, speaker is far better. It is a heavier and bulkier phone though than the 8 plus - immediately noticeable when you hold both in hand side by side. Generally speaking the rest of the experience feels the same, as expected but the battery life is amazing, could nearly go two days without needing to charge. I was put off going for the ProMax as it just felt unnecessarily large in the hand, definitely don't regret just going for the Pro.

I find it hard to justify the cost of the upgrade considering I felt the 8 Plus still did everything I need a phone to do and was still quick enough when it came to day to day use, apps etc.

How have you found the change in terms of comfort in the hand (as in sharp edges v rounded)?

How have you found the change re how comfortable it feels in the hand (as in change from round edges go sharper edges)?

Found the 13 pro very easy to hold and grip. The camera bump is a bit annoying though especially if you have the phone in landscape and you are trying to watch a video, it does get in the way a bit.

I do think the 8 plus was a great design though, a very sleek device. Side by side actually a bit longer/taller, but screen on the 13 pro is definitely bigger.

Well i changed from a Samsung s21 ultra to the iphone 13 pro max 1tb ...

A few things i do not like so far.
Notifications:- you cannot swipe right to dismiss them individually(unless I'm missing something} All or nothing.
Navigation:- around the phone itself. using gestures. i am used to using Swipe left to go back ect.

Email i am currently having major issues with my Gmail accounts. Unless i actually go into the mail app i get no notifications everything is set to push ect. driving me nuts.

is there a better email app to use with ios ?
If i can sort the Gmail problem i will be happy.

If you expand a stack of notifications you can swipe individual ones and select clear.

Tried the Gmail app ?

Thank you for the reply. i was kinda hoping the default app would work. it does work if i manually go into the mail folder it then syncs and the emails come. but unless i go into the mail app i have no idea i have emails.

This may or may not be helpful but I have a couple of gmail accounts configured in the default mail app on my phone and notifications do work perfectly for them. I don't have to manually go into the folder or anything like that, it appears to work as well as iCloud email for me.

Swipe right to go back and swipe left to go forward.

Tap the top of the screen to scroll to the top of the page is one not many people seem to know.
