Intro iphone 14 pro Max
The iPhone 14 Pro Max was unveiled during Apple’s event on September 7, and it reveals everything you need to know to make an informed iPhone 14 Pro Max vs. iPhone 13 Pro Max.
This is the new top dog in the iPhone 14 lineup, and it offers some significant improvements over the iPhone 13 Pro Max, making the 14 Pro Max a strong contender for the best phone you can buy right now. Beating the iPhone 13 Pro Max’s numbers is a tall order, though, given that it won the Tom’s Guide Award 2022 for the best phone last year.
APPLE IPHONE 14 PRO MAX 2022 Now that we’ve heard all the details straight from Apple, here’s an in-depth breakdown of the key differences between the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
iPhone 14 Pro Max design and display
At first glance, the iPhone 14 Pro Max resembles its predecessor, with flat edges surrounding a 6.7-inch display that takes up a large portion of the phone’s face.
The big difference isn’t that big at all once you notice it – there’s a new pill-shaped notch in the top center of the display that houses the phone’s the smaller notch from last year’s phones camera array, replacing.
Apple calls this oblong viewport a Dynamic Island, and iOS is designed to animate around it, so things like notifications and status indicators appear to wrap around or pop out of the viewport.
Up front, the iPhone 14 Pro Max has the same 6.7-inch OLED display as its predecessor, but this time it’s designed with an always-on display that’s made to show which is more customizable than ever in iOS 16 your lock screen.
The graphite, silver, and gold colors from the iPhone 13 Pro Max are still available for the new model, as is the new Deep Purple shade—unfortunately, Apple seems to have ditched the blue and green colors offered on last year’s model.
The new iPhone 14 Pro Max has the same adaptive refresh rate technology as its predecessor, but while the iPhone 13 Pro Max could only go from 120 Hz to 10 Hz, the new iPhone 14 Pro Max can go from 120 Hz all the way to 1 Hz. This helps the always-on display save power, matching a similar feature offered on the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.
iPhone 14 Pro Max vs. cameras
While the iPhone 14 Pro Max has virtually the same array of rear cameras as its predecessor, which includes the wide-angle, ultra-wide and telephoto lenses that come on Expect a major change to that main camera of 14 iphone pro Max.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max now has a 48MP main camera on the front, ending the years of 12MP sensors on Apple phones.
This new sensor should help the iPhone 14 Pro Max deliver better photos, and Apple says its new Photonic Engine technology will further improve the quality of low-light photos taken with the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max is also better at shooting video than its predecessor, as it can now record videos in cinema mode (for shallow depth of field) at up to 30 frames per second in 4K HDR,
while its predecessor could only manage the same in 1080p. without HDR. There’s also access to a new Action Mode and Pro Max for capturing high-speed action-packed videos.
Add up all these changes, and it looks like the iPhone 14 Pro Max will deliver a better camera experience than the iPhone 13 Pro Max – impressive, given that the latter phone already ranks among the best camera phones in our estimation. Of course, we’ll have to wait until we test one ourselves to know for sure.
iPhone 14 Pro Max performance
The iPhone 14 Pro Max features Apple’s A16 Bionic chip, an improved version of the A15 Bionic that powered last year’s phone. This new A16 Bionic features a 6-core CPU with 2 powerful cores and 4 efficient cores, as well as a 5-core GPU and a 16-core Neural Engine.
The new chipset is also built on a 4nm process versus the 5nm process of its predecessor. Simply put, these specs suggest that you should expect the iPhone 14 Pro Max to be faster and more powerful than the iPhone 13 Pro Max, but not by much. Our A16 Bionic vs.
The A15 Bionic suggests it won’t be a big jump, although Apple claims the A16 uses 20% less power than the A15 and has a GPU with 50% more memory bandwidth than its predecessor.
Power management is now key as the iPhone 14 Pro Max comes with an always-on display and the A16 is designed to smartly manage the display and its 1-120Hz refresh rate to save power.
iPhone 14 Pro Max battery life and charging
For the iPhone 13 series, Apple has increased battery size all around, with the iPhone 13 Pro Max jumping to a 4,352 mAh cell. This helped the phone last 12 hours and 16 minutes on our battery test, landing the iPhone 13 Pro Max on our list of best phone battery life.
Apple doesn’t seem to have changed the battery much for the iPhone 14 Pro Max, instead slightly increasing its mAh rating. However, given the likely improvements to the power efficiency of the A16 Bionic chipset and the phone’s 1-120Hz display, the iPhone 14 Pro Max should be able to keep up with its predecessor.
Apple claims that the iPhone 14 Pro Max can achieve up to 29 hours of video playback on a full battery, which is an hour longer than the iPhone 13 Pro Max 28 hours it promised for.
Both iPhones continue to charge at 20W, while rival Android devices are pushing ever-faster charging. Despite rumors earlier this year that Apple was working on 30W charging, the iPhone 14 Pro Max still relies on a 20W charger and, like its predecessor, Apple claims after 30 minutes of charging it can reach 50% capacity.
iPhone Pro Max14 outlook
The iPhone 13 Pro Max was a near-perfect phone that raised the bar for every phone that came after it — including the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Now that Apple has unveiled the new model, we can’t wait to get down to it and do some performance testing of our own – so stay tuned!
We’ll soon see if Apple’s upcoming phone is up to the challenge of beating last year’s model, but we’re already excited about the arrival of a 1-120Hz always-on display and a wider and thicker camera notch that’s more tightly integrated with iOS.
