iPhone 15 Pro Max design and display

Update (27/09): Since the release of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, many users have taken to the internet to report worrying overheating issues. It’s thought that the phone’s titanium design could be to blame for its poor cooling efficiency, with Apple expected to roll out a fix via software updates soon. However, this fix would likely require Apple to curtail the power of the phone’s A17 Pro chipset.

At first regard, the iPhone 15 Pro Max looks a lot like its precursor, particularly as rumors of new twisted edges didn’t come to consummation.

Rather the iPhone 15 Pro Max retains its flat edges, but Apple has smoothed the silhouettes on them. still, the biggest change is the switching of pristine sword for a titanium lattice that encases an aluminum substructure. This means the iPhone 15 Pro Max is both stronger and lighter than the iPhone 14 Pro Max, but still has strong thermal dispersion thanks to the use of aluminum( the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s removable hinder glass panel makes it cheaper and easier to repair, too).

Another major change is the switching of the mute slider for an Action button. Only available on the new iPhone Pro models, this button can spark colorful functions, similar as snappily penetrating the camera of flashlight, cranking Voice Memo, driving focus modes, and penetrating the Lanes functions, all via a press- and- hold gesture.

The display remains largely the same, with a6.7- inch size and access to a 120Hz refresh rate ProMotion panel. But the bezels have been trimmed down a little, and the Dynamic Island has been bettered to show further contextual information.

The always-on display has been improved too, with more customizable widgets on offer when in StandBy mode.

iPhone 15 Pro Max cameras

  • 48MP main camera defaults to 24MP photos
  • Periscope telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom and a 120mm focal length
  • Automatic portrait mode and improved low-light photography 

While the iPhone 15 Pro Max sticks to a triad of hinder cameras, these have been bettered. The 48MP main camera now serves up 24- megapixel prints rather than 12MP shots by dereliction, and advancements to the Photonic Engine mean better low- light photography from it and the ultrawide camera; the ultimate has also been given bettered HDR performance, and ananti-reflective lens coating.

But the biggest camera upgrade, and one that is exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro Max, comes in the form of the new 12MP blowup camera, which has a periscope lens arrangement to deliver a 5x optic drone and a focal length of 120 mm. Thanks to an” innovative tetraprism design with a combined optic image stabilization and autofocus 3D detector- shift module,” Apple says this camera should deliver better close- ups, and also work well for landing wildlife photography and prints at sporting events.

Advancements in Smart HDR recycling pledge more true- to- life skin tones and colors, while the LiDAR scanner, in combination with the main and ultrawide cameras, can capture’ Spatial’ footage for use with the Apple Vision Pro mixed reality headset.

On the videotape side, advancements have been made to low- light and fast- movement prisoner, thanks to the new A17 Pro chip and its boosted neural processing.

iPhone 15 Pro Max USB-C

  • USB-C replaces the Lightning port 
  • The connection offers USB 3 connectivity speeds 

Surprising no one, the iPhone 15 Pro Max comes with a USB-C port, which replaces the Lightning port that has been a staple of iPhones for generations.

Unlike the USB- C anchorages on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, the Pro’s harborage offers a USB regulator to power USB 3 pets of over to 10 Gbps. That means prints and videotape formats that bear a lot of bandwidth, like ProRes and ProRAW, can be directly transferred off the iPhone 15 Pro Max via USB- C onto MacBooks, while 4K videotape at 60 frames per second can be recorded directly to external hard drives.

This may feel like a small upgrade, but it really puts the professional element into the Pro iPhones, especially for videotape content generators.

With these cameras and features, the iPhone 15 Pro Max has a good shot at ranking high in our list of the stylish camera phones. But we wo n’t know for sure until we ’ve completed a full iPhone 15 Pro Max review.

iPhone 15 Pro Max specs

(Image credit: Apple)
  • 3nm A17 Pro chip with improved CPU, GPU and Neural Engine processing 
  • Support for hardware-accelerated ray tracing 
  • Second-generation ultra wideband chip for better connectivity with devices 

Powering the iPhone 15 Pro Max is the new A17 Pro chip. With 19 billion transistors on a new 3- nanometer process, the A17 Pro has a 10 faster CPU, and an 8- core GPU that is not only 20 faster than its precursor but also enables tackle- accelerated shaft dogging; anticipate this to serve up some seductive games, including games like Resident Evil Village, Resident Evil 4, Death Grounding, and Assassin’s Creed Mirage when they get ported over to the new Pro iPhones.

The A17 Pro also brings with it 2x bettered Neural Machine processing to deliver up to 35 trillion operations per second. In simple terms, this means Siri can be used to perform bettered on- device functions without demanding to connect back to the pall.

We have now seen early iPhone 15 Pro Max marks which further demonstrate the power of the A17 Pro chipset, as its scores are far advanced than any Android phone, and a fair bit advanced than the iPhone 14 Pro Max manages too.

Interestingly, these rosters also mention 8 GB of RAM, which would be over from 6 GB in the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Apple noway reveals RAM quantities in its phones however, so we will not know for sure how much the iPhone 15 Pro Max has until someone has opened one over.

Finally, a second-generation ultra wideband chip provides connectivity with other devices up to three times further away than the previous generation chip. And there’s support for Wi-Fi 6E.

iPhone 15 Pro Max battery and charging

  • Up to 29 hours of video playback 

Apple does not bandy battery sizes, so we have not been told the size of the cell in the iPhone 15 Pro Max. But Apple claims it will deliver up to 29 hours of videotape playback, and we managed to get a 28 hours while testing the phone for our full iPhone 15 Pro Max review.

Apple says the iPhone 15 Pro Max can recharge to 50 in 30 twinkles with an voluntary 20W USB- C appendage. Ours charged to 47 in that time, and took another hour and a half for it to completely charge. Charging is done via USB- C or MagSafe, and there is also support for Qi2 wireless charging.
