With the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max, our collection is finally complete. It’s the biggest, heaviest, most powerful, and most feature-rich iPhone Apple has made so far, and that’s enough to make it the best seller it’s designed for.
The new iPhone 12 Pro Max is the only Series iPhone 12 member to pack three new and improved cameras on the back. This might even be enough to lure in users who might not even want the Max size. That’s how proper upgrades should be made – by updating every possible aspect, not just design.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max denomination not only stands for maximum size but a complete set of new features. The biggest iPhones today enjoy the most premium and durable design Apple has ever made, the most powerful chip with 5G support, the latest Apple cameras, the LiDAR scanner, the biggest speakers, the most powerful battery, and, of course, MagSafe support.
This Max version could have been better with a 120Hz screen, but, unfortunately, this feature doesn’t detract from the Series 12. Maybe next year, who knows, but today even the most expensive iPhone can’t display more than 60fps on its screen.
We know you’re eager to see the Pro Max’s battery life and camera performance, but the first is what matters. Let’s take a closer look at the specifications, shall we?
