The iPhone 13 Pro Max arrived in Nepal back in October 2021. Fast forward to 2023 — unlike the regular iPhone 13 — its “Pro Max” sibling is no longer available in the country. Still, let’s take a look at the features, specs, and price in Nepal of the iPhone 13 Pro Max before it went out of stock.

iPhone 13 Pro Max Overview:
Design and Display
The iPhone 13 Pro Max comes with a similar 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display to its predecessor. However, the refresh rate has been upgraded from 60Hz to a ProMotion 120Hz. Hence, the UI and transition feel much smoother on the iPhone 13 Pro Max. It can smartly switch between 10-120Hz based on the content playing on the screen.
The panel has a 2778 x 1284 pixels resolution with 458 PPI and has Ceramic Shield protection as well. It retains the design from the 12 Pro lineup and features stainless steel frames and rounded corners. It also brings IP68 rated for water and dust resistance. Similarly, the color options for iPhone 13 Pro Max include Graphite, Gold, Silver, and Sierra Blue.

On the performance side of things, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is powered by the A15 Bionic chip that features a 6‑core CPU and 5‑core GPU. In addition, with the new 16-core Neural Engine, Apple is claiming up to 15.8 trillion operations per second (TOPS) here, which enables faster machine learning. Likewise, the storage option starts from 128GB and goes as high as up to 1TB. All the storage variants are available in Nepal.
Over on the cameras, there’s a new triple-lens system with a larger 77mm telephoto lens that provides 3x optical zoom. To compare, 2020’s iPhone 12 Pro Max had 2.5x optical zoom. The 12MP main camera features a larger sensor with bigger pixels (1.9 µm), which increases its capacity to retain better details in low-light photos. Likewise, the 12MP ultra-wide lens can now shoot macro shots of objects from as close as 2cm.
On the front, it houses a 12MP TrueDepth camera inside a redesigned notch that’s 20% smaller than the one on its predecessor. Besides this, all the exciting camera features of the iPhone 13 lineup are present here. This includes ProRes video, Cinematic mode, sensor-shift stabilization, Photographic Styles, Dolby Vision HDR, 4K video at up to 60fps, and more.
Rest of the specs
Moving on, the 13 Pro Max comes with a 4352mAh that charges via the lighting port using a 20W adapter. On the other hand, the wireless connectivity option includes Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, e-SIM (dual), GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS, and BeiDou.
Unfortunately, like last year’s iPhone 12 series, Apple doesn’t ship them with a charger. Here in Nepal, the 20W Apple charger costs NPR 4,500. If that’s a bit high, you can get the 20W charger from Anker (NPR 2,500) which will work just fine. Likewise, Apple Nepal also provides 1 year of breakage insurance on the purchase of the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

iPhone 13 Pro Max Authorised vs Grey Seller in Nepal
You can buy the iPhone 13 Pro Max in Nepal via two channels: Authorised and Grey. Authorized iPhones are those that are legally imported via a national distributor (Gen Nxt). Hence, you get a VAT Bill as well as 1-year breakage insurance if you purchase from retail partners of Gen Nxt such as Hukut Store, Oliz Store, and Evo Store.
Likewise, if you purchase the iPhone 13 Pro Max in Nepal from grey channels, you will not receive a VAT Bill and neither do you get insurance or a warranty of any sort. However, they are often 10 to 15% cheaper than what you get from authorized channels. Usually, the price of the iPhone 13 Pro Max (256GB) from grey channels starts at NPR 185,000, while it is available for NPR 208,990 from the authorized channels.
