13 Product Red vs 12 Product Red
By - unqualified_engineer
The 13 product red is what I wanted last year.
Ikr, the 12 Red was a bit too orange
Fresh from Norway!
Amen. If that was the color last year, I’d have a red 12 mini instead of blue.
The 11 and SE red was such a nice colour
Double amen. I still regret not going red with my 11. If I had, I genuinely might have skipped the 12 mini.
XR had the best red ever. Fire engine, candy apple, delicious Ferrari red.
Was the 11 and SE red the same candy apple red shade as the 8? Because I got the iPhone SE (2020) in red and it’s an ugly pastel shade.
Sadly no. The 8 was much richer and deeper
The XR red was a beauty too.
Totally agree with this. I miss my Product RED iPhone 11.
If that was the red last year I may have forgone getting a Pro.
I just want a red pro color. I'd even take burgundy if the product red is too "bold" for the pro series.
A burgundy 14 pro max is what I’m hoping for
Yeah, I agree, I went with the blue 12 last year, which I'm not completely mad at since it's my favorite color lol. I'm hoping next year the Product Red iPhone is a deep red like that 13.
Good news. Now it's here.
I got a silver mini instead last year.
They do make the best apple watch avaliable in product red tho right.?
The red color in the metal part seems more or less the same, but the glass back was more orange/pink on the 12 compared to 11/13
Yeah I canceled my product red pre-order last year after seeing it in person and went for black instead
Yeah I wish the 12 had been this colour. I was pretty disappointed with the 12 so went for 13 pro max this time and wow is it great compared to the 12.
SAME. It was one of the reasons I went for the blue!
Last year was coral
It's a proper hue of red again!
That’s my first though.
I saw one in the store today when picking up my Pro, and I had instant regret on picking the Pro.
But then I was playing with both side by side, and damn the 120hz was so much nicer than the regular 13.
Checked the normal 13 and the Pro out today, and the Pro absolutely blew me away. 120Hz, better chip and much better camera, all while looking so good. Great to have some proper differences between the normal & Pro iPhones again. Last year, the 12 Pro was basically a 12 with stainless steel sides and an additional camera. Wanted to add that the notch on all the new models really surprised me as well. Many seemed to downplay the actual size reduction, but it made a huge difference when viewed side-by-side with my iPhone X.
I got the 12 last year and said I would wait a few years before upgrading, but that 120Hz screen will likely change my mind.
It’s really not that noticeable.
I definitely notice the difference on the iPad.
But when I picked up the 13 pro I literally had to scroll and scroll a while to even be like “oh yeah I see it”
Really not worth the upgrade.
Comes down to if you can notice it with your eyes. I’ve been using my 13 pro max since yesterday and I notice the difference with almost everything I do as it just feels snappier compared to my 11 pro max. I love the change to 120hz and will never go back
My dad noticed immediately when I went to show him, even without comparing to his 12 Pro. It’s definitely noticeable if your eyes are “tuned in” or used to to higher refresh rates.
Hell yeah man and I love it. I keep seeing it everytime I unlock my phone screen and I’ll probably get tired of the feature by next week but it’s still really cool
I’ll never go back to a non-promotion iPad but for a phone, meh, it’s not remotely worth the extra money to me but then I don’t use an iPhone as my main device.
Pro > Red
Can we please have a product red iPhone 13 pro max apple
Leave us non-Pro peasants something, dammit!
bro is gatekeeping colors
No bro I'm just a soon to be samsung refuge that had to put up with black white and some dusty pink colour for 3 years 😡😄
Red frosted back with red stainless steel would look absolutely amazing
Fuck the frosted back. I hate it. I like clear glass. I want to get the iPhone 14 Pro Max next year and I hope to fuck they sell it in gold without the frosted glass.
Seriously! This will be my first ever Non Product Red iPhone. :(
Oh yeah! I want that so badly! I have a black 8 plus now because 4 years ago Apple only released the product red 8 plus months after introducing the 2017 iPhone line up. :(
Only if 13 gets a Sierra blue let’s trade
“It’s our most reddest red yet.”
Really wish they would’ve made that color available for the pro…
They don’t? Why?
Pros only get the so called “premium” colours each year. They don’t make the fun, colourful options available for the pro since they want to make it look all premium and professional. Sucks but it is what it is :/
You can throw a dbrand skin on it, but yeah it’s just not the same
I always wish so, so much that they'd just do the Pro phones in fun colors too
Nah, they wouldn’t do that. I mean, I know you know that. Not pointing out something you don’t know. But they do this because they think that people don’t want to get confused with the cheaper models.
On the off topic, those first 5c colors and coatings were just beautiful.
Yeah, I know that's what it is. I just wish Apple wasn't convinced that people that pay for the "elite" experience don't want to be fun. Haha
I don’t think that it’s that they think we aren’t fun, I just think it’s the tone they’re trying to set. They want the pros to be clinical, you would think with the creativity of pros that we would want more colors, but they want us to stay focused. The equipment that we work with as “professionals” are often the same tones, so they want to match those products.
at least we got sierra blue. personally i’m not sure if it’s for me but it does look nice
Personally, my favourite pro colour so far has been the midnight green in 11 Pro Max
ah yeah that is a really cool color! shame they didn’t continue it for the 12/13 pro series
I wanted the graphite, and I had the blue on the 12 Pro, but this blue is really starting to grow on me. I love it.
sweet! the t-mobile store i got my phone at had a Sierra Blue 13 PM but unfortunately I couldn’t really see it since it was on a stand
pm? What do you mean? What phone did yo u end up getting?
pro max haha. i meant the store i went to had a 13 pro max on display in the sierra blue color. i wanted to see it but i couldn’t take it out of its stand. I got the regular 13 pro
Which is an absolutely terrible excuse. Step up your game Apple, I want that red phone on Pro Max, fucking hell.
Red phones are gorgeous. I used to own the 2016 SE till last year and I hated that there was no red on it. I’m finally at peace now after replacing my SE with a red iphone
Would love a deep maroon pro
Or purple… holy shit.
No the 8
The 8 red was so nice!
Ferrari red, you mean Rosso Corsa?
Yaaaaas gives me iPhone XR product red vibes
Xr red is the shade to beat afaik
XR had the best colours imo, even the boring colours like white looked so nice
Were the 11 available in the same red as the XR there’s a good chance that’s what I would’ve gotten. Instead I got white.
If my 11 Pro Max came in a better looking colour then swamp green I would have fitted that in a heartbeat, I got silver instead, which is beautiful, but the untreated stainless steel scratches if you look at it wrong :/
Fortunately most of the scratches are micro abrasions, and come out with a quick polish, but the next time you pocket that phone naked you bet those scratches will come right back out
I’ve never owned a Pro model, but honestly the silver are the ones that appeal to me the most. Whites and silvers apple tends to get consistently right. The rest of the colors seem to vary fairly widely in terms of shade and can be pretty hit or miss from generation to generation.
Definitely my favourite too, Apple is really good with their white lineup, curious to see what their new silver looks like, in the photos it’s as if it’s got a slight yellow hue to it, and I’m not sure if I’ll be a fan of that
Agreed. I was hoping we’d get a yellow 12 like the XR. The yellow 11 looked like a toaster from the 70s by comparison.
Dakota Red vs Fiesta Red
This is the only color that got better
Edit: I also like Midnight
The blue looks better imo
The blues on both phones are nice.
I think last year's look better.
We're in the minority here, but I agree. At least they change it up pretty consistently so everyone gets a turn with their favorite red!
The Pink alongside Sierra Blue looks really nice aesthetically. I want to see all the colors in person, but especially the Pink, S. Blue, Starlight and Midnight.
The pink is beautiful in person! Doesn’t really pick up on camera
I have yet to see any of them in person
The camera placement is more different than I thought, they’ve moved it more into the corner and the sensors are much larger
5c came in red? I remember lime green, white and blue. Probably did, 5 colors.
Yellow was the fifth, iPhone 7 was the first to come in product red
Xr red was also so good
Unpopular opinion ITT but I loved the color of the 12 bc coral is my favorite color
Is the 13 wider?
no but it is fatter so that might be why it looks that way
Wait what? It’s not as thin as the 12????
The 13 is slightly thicker than the 12 because of the bigger battery.
How much bigger and heavier?
[Apple Insider](https://appleinsider.com/articles/21/09/15/iphone-13-models-thicker-and-heavier-truedepth-notch-slightly-taller-than-iphone-12-lineup) has a good story detailing the differences in thickness and weight between the 12 and 13.
10grams heavier and .2 mm thicker.
Can’t believe I purchase 2 Product Red 13 and 13 mini (wife and mine)
Something spoke to us, we usually get black, looking forward to the change.
So besides camera position wtf are the differences from the 12 to the 13
the cameras themselves are better and the battery is significantly bigger
So they have different numbers; one is called "12" and the other is called "13". There are definitely other differences, probably, but one way they are similar is that I do not own either one of them.
Oh right. Different numbers.
Faster GPU, smaller notch, bigger battery, improved rear camera modules and more camera capabilities.
And a better shade of red.
Iirc The cameras in the 13 are the same from the 12 pro max last year, which was better than the rest of the lineup.
It now starts at 128GB. Better chip. Better screen (gets more bright). Better battery. Smaller notch.
That’s it I think. Huh.
Two hours extra screen on time for the battery is probably the difference most people will notice. The 12 is still available at $100 less though.
I like it when it feels like it’s committed to the color. The 13 red knows it’s red. The 12 red wants to be red, but also might want to be coral. It’s like the 11 vs 12 purple colors or the XR vs 11 yellows. Maybe I just prefer vibrant colors to pastels 🤷🏼♀️
Now with more Red
Now that’s red.
A product RED iPhone that's actually red!
Product red is 🔥
Never really cared about the color.. the phones always in a case anyways
Why can’t they ever make the pro in a product red 😭
Back to XR red *chefs kiss*
My XR product red is a really really dark red so it’s also different. But I prefer the darkness of my XR. Plus I hate the hassle of the upgrade, and those dudes always trying to Hussle more shit to me…
I love that darker red for the 13.
Looks like I’m the only one in the thread who actually likes the 12 series Red better lol
The best part about the new red and I believe all the new 13 phones is that the sides are metallic, idk if it’s new since my last phone was a 7 though
I would’ve really liked the product red for the 13 pro max /:
IMO the best red was SE. 13 is a bit too dark for my taste, though it is a close second, and 12... Let's not talk about 12 :)
Jeeeeez that redesign, re-engineering, complete overhaul and finest of innovation.
It is totally not looks like the iPhone X with square camera bump and sharpen edges.
Oh I love this Apple innovation. I just can wait for camera punch hole, under display finger print and USB-C on iPhone 25.
The 12 red is still beautiful. I could not resist it’s siren call lol.
Having the 13 Red with me right now. But decided to turn it in for the Pro because of the Pro Motion. I tried it in store and it feels much smoother overall....BUT the red color is really making me doubtful about everything...it's so good
Underrated opinion(maybe) - wont it be cool to have a product red in the pro lineup?
i work for AT&T and that 12 looks nothing like the red? Its like an orange. Is it the lighting or?
It’s definitely a coral ish color
That is a very nice, deep red!
Definitely a nicer red than what was on the 12.
I want to see the blue.
12 is pink 13 is red. 2 different colors
My phones are black or dark grey, matches my watch etc
Pink can red
Looks more like the 2nd generation SE now.
Now that's red! They got it right this year.
13 is more better
12 looks more pink
One is more redder.
The 13 Red looks like it got a little of the 12 Red on the camera bump.
Company wants you to fund the differences between these pictures
Man that is the colour I wanted and not the bullshit red they had!
I like the 13 red more.
I like the 13 Product Red more. Looks more like a legit red whereas the 12 Product Red looks a bit coral to me.
I want a bold red with a black apple. Has that ever occurred?
13 is what it always should’ve been
Finally a solid overall side by side
The 12 leans to puce.
Looking like my 11
I like the 12 red, I think its cute
I’m not a huge fan of the glossy red. iPhone 7 Plus product red is the best to date. If Apple did an iPhone 13 Pro in red with the frosted glass I would be all over that!
It is almost as if “product red “ is just… red
It is, but there’s a charity called [RED](https://red.org), and some of the proceeds from sales of the red iPhone go toward them.
Noooooooo. I wanted the 13 red. 🥲
My brother got the 12 product red and it looks pink. I went for the blue 13 and I like the deep blue cloth it had. The new 13 blue is alright but I’m not a fan. The sierra blue on the 13 pro is pretty nice tho, just wish that the sides weren’t stainless steel cause that is a fingerprint magnet
What color is the case?
“Most Red iPhone ever”
Oh I see it .. this year we get that red red 🍎
I want product red pro already!
Wow the 13 red pops and looks absolutely gorgeous. That’s how the Product Red should usually look, the one from last year is too muted for my taste.
Looks like the Xr red very nice
Now 20% more product
So it’s actually red this year?
Looks much better this time around
Is the 13 slightly larger or is it just an illusion?
Loooks sooo good!! If the ProMotion wasn’t so damn amazing I would have gotten a 13 Mini in (PRODUCT)RED.
Oh good they fixed it.
I’ve wanted a red iPhone for a long time, but it has always been released months after the initial launch, and only non-Pro version.
Why can’t they just put it on Pro too?
Does the gold 13 Pro match the gold M1 MacBook?
Cries in 12 red.
That 13 makes the 12 look like a knockoff. Holy crap. You not kept that 12 orbiting the earth in 24 hour a day direct unfiltered sunlight for the past year ? Then woah there’s a reason to upgrade right now.
This year’s iPhone 13 blue and product red are better than last year’s iPhone 12.
love the cherry red
Loving the red 13 mini in the midnight silicone case, the red details you see look awesome.
Now it’s red.
Is it the different color, or the 13 looks slightly bigger?
I love the waxy red look on the new one
Why can't they just keep the same exact color for Product Red products...
iPhone Xr red was good.
iPhone 12 was not.
iPhone 13 red is good.
Do they do it on purpose?
It’s the first phone I bought that’s something other than black or bare aluminum. Love the color
Finally the real Product Red
new one goes harder!
The 13 red and white apple logo look better IMO
