iPhone 14 Pro Max, iPhone 14 Max Possible Differences: What to Expect
It was recently reported that the Apple iPhone 14 Max will launch with the iPhone 14 Plus band. If true, the Cupertino-based tech giant will release its first Plus-branded phone since the iPhone 8 Plus. While the iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Max are said to have a similar form factor and screen size, the iPhone 14 Pro Max could debut with a few upgrades over the Max (or Plus) model. The two phones are expected to debut tonight during Apple’s “Far Out” event.
Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max, iPhone 14 Max differences (expected)
First, the Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max is expected to run on the latest Apple A16 Bionic SoC. On the other hand, the iPhone 14 Max is said to be powered by last year’s Apple A15 Bionic SoC. In addition, the new SoC is said to be exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro models.
Second, the iPhone 14 Pro modes, which includes the iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Pro, are said to have a larger camera bump with a 48-megapixel primary rear sensor. However, non-professional iPhone 14 models may retain the same 12-megapixel camera as the previous generation models.
Third, iPhone 14 Pro models may reportedly have Always On Display (AoD) functionality. The feature is said to be activated by the low refresh rate display, which is said to be between 1Hz and 120Hz on the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Pro. Hints of purported AoD support have reportedly been spotted in iOS 16.
Finally, the addition of a unified pill-shaped cutout that is said to house the Face ID sensor, selfie camera, and privacy indicators is reportedly exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Pro. Non-pro models of the iPhone 14, including the iPhone 14 Max and the vanilla iPhone 14, are said to retain the notch previously used on the iPhone 13 series. According to rumors, the only notable similarity between the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the iPhone 14 Max is the expected 6.7-inch display.
According to a recent report, the iPhone 14 Max was supposed to go by the iPhone 14 Plus moniker. The Cupertino-based company reportedly told case makers for iPhone models not to use the iPhone 14 Max branding.
As a reminder, Apple is set to hold a Far Out launch event tonight, September 7th at 10:30 pm EST. During the event, the tech giant is expected to unveil the iPhone 14 series, Apple Watch Series 8, Watch Pro, and Apple AirPods Pro 2. The event will be streamed by Apple via the official website.
