Keep that large iPhone safe and sound
The iPhone 13 Pro Max is chonkier than its smaller sibling the iPhone 13 Pro, so you'd best protect it with a great case. After all, this is one of the best iPhones ever, so it would be a shame if anything were to happen to it so soon after you receive it, right? While you're at it, make sure to grab a great screen protector for your iPhone 13 Pro Max too, so it remains in 100% pristine condition.
