What’s the Difference Between the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max?
Still the iPhone 12 Pro Max is a greater phone and some unique features that can’t be found in its smaller sibling. Here are the major differences we’ve found that you might like or dislike.
The major different difference that can be potted right away is the screen size. The iPhone 12 Pro is fully built with a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display, while the 12 Pro Max has a larger 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display.
Both displays support HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and have a peak brightness of 1200 nits. They also come with Ceramic Shield protection which to prevent scratch.
The iPhone 12 Pro has a 2815-milliamp-hour battery, while the Pro Max has a larger 3687-milliamp-hour cell.
The 12 Pro is rated to have 17 hours of continuous video playback while the 12 Pro Max supports a total of 20 hours of video playback.
The camera is the most notable difference between the two devices. Both iPhones have a three-camera setup on the back and an identical selfie camera on the front.
The iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max each have a 12MP, f/1.6 main sensor. But the sensor on the 12 Pro Max is larger, which allows for better low-light photography and better detail.
This main sensor on the 12 Pro uses OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) to make videos smoother and less jittery. Whereas the 12 Pro Max uses sensor-shift to stabilize footage even more effectively.
Both devices also have a telephoto camera, but they have different focal lengths. Optically, the 12 Pro telephoto zooms in 2x while the 12 Pro Max zooms in 2.5x.
Which Model Is The Best For You?
Apart from the feature listed above, another thing you have to consider is your budget. The iPhone 12 Pro starts at $999 and the iPhone 12 Pro Max starts at $100 more at $1099. Overall, it comes down to which device fits your criteria the best. If you want the best camera experience, get the bigger Pro Max; if you want the smaller device that has most of the features of the bigger phone, get the iPhone 12 Pro.
