With the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max, our collection is finally complete. It’s the largest, heaviest, most powerful, and feature-rich iPhone Apple has ever made, and it’s enough to make it the best-selling product it’s designed to be.
The new iPhone 12 Pro Max is the only member of the Series 12 that packs the new and improved triple camera on the back. This may even be enough to entice users who may not even be up to the maximum size. This is how a proper upgrade should be performed – by updating all possible aspects, not just the design.
iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Pro
The iPhone 12 Pro’s Max designation does not only stand for maximum size, but for the complete set of new features. The largest iPhone to date enjoys the most premium and durable design Apple has ever made, the most powerful chip with 5G support, the latest Apple camera, the LiDAR scanner, the largest speakers, the most buffoonish battery and of course MagSafe support.

This Max version could have been even better with a 120Hz screen, but unfortunately this feature did not come down to series 12. Maybe next year, who knows, but today even the most expensive iPhone can not display more than 60 fps on the screen.
We know you’re eager to see Pro Max’s battery life and camera performance, but first and foremost. Let’s take a closer look at its specifications, shall we?

The iPhone 12 Pro Max is an upscale version of the iPhone 12 Pro with a larger screen and battery. It also has a larger 12MP sensor for its primary camera with the industry’s first sensor-shift image stabilization. Finally, its telephoto camera has an even longer range now – 65mm f / 2.2 to 2.5x optical zoom. On a!
Finally, although the iPhone 12 Pro Max is one of the most expensive phones today, like the rest of the iPhone 12s, it also comes without accessories thanks to Apple’s latest controversial effort to save the planet.
Unpacking the iPhone 12 Pro Max
Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max comes in a thin and light box that contains the phone and a USB-C-to-lightning cable.
There is no charger or EarPods inside, but you will find a SIM exhaust pin and a solitary Apple sticker if you dig deeper. You’d better stick to that metal pin, as it might also disappear next year.
