The Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to be treated differently and to have some exclusive Apple-first capabilities, making it the go-to iPhone for anyone who wants nothing but the finest.
The next big Apple presentation, set for September 12 with the motto “Wonderlust,” is already building anticipation for the new iPhone, this time the iPhone 15 series. According to numerous sources, the iPhone 15 series would have four variants, with the iPhone 15 Pro Max serving as the flagship model.
Unlike last year, when the two Pro iPhones were nearly identical, the iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to be treated differently and to include some exclusive Apple-first capabilities, making it the go-to iPhone for anyone who wants nothing but the finest.
Here’s what we know about the Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max thus far:
Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max design and build quality
The flagship iPhone 15 Pro Max is likely to receive significant design and construction quality enhancements over its predecessor. To begin with, the iPhone 15 Pro Max is said to be one of the first iPhones to include a titanium mid-frame, which will help Apple improve its toughness while also reducing weight.
While the iPhone 15 Pro Max has a little boxy form, the frame will have a curved finish and a USB-Type-C port, according to a leak by URedditor. Apple will also replace the mute switch with an action button, similar to the one seen on the Apple Watch Ultra, according to MacRumors.
While previous rumors projected that Apple will replace regular volume buttons with solid-state buttons, Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Apple kept regular buttons owing to “unresolved technical issues.”
Apple’s use of titanium rather than stainless steel is supposed to help the iPhone 15 Pro Max in a variety of ways, including increased structural stiffness, as titanium is stronger and lighter than stainless steel.
Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max charging and connectivity
When compared to the base model, the iPhone 15 Pro Max is believed to have a better USB Type-C port. The iPhone 15 Pro Max’s new Type-C charging connection is reported to be USB 4 and Thunderbolt 3 compatible. The new Type-C module, which includes a Thunderbolt chip, is confirmed by a leaked photograph from ChargerLab. Despite the presence of a USB Type-C port, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are expected to offer USB 2.0 data transfer speeds.
Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max colour options
According to the Apple logo on the “Wonderlust” event invitation, the new iPhone 15 Pro Max could come in fresh color options like dark blue, black, silver, and grey. Unlike the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which had a glossy frame and a matte glass back, the iPhone 15 Pro Max is rumored to have a matte back panel and a matte frame, making it fingerprint and smudge resistant. According to 9to5Mac, Apple may replace the gold option of the iPhone 15 Pro Max with a new titanium-based grey color.
Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max display
The iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to include a big 6.7-inch screen with Dynamic Island, similar to its predecessor. According to ShrimpApplePro and Bloomberg, the new panel will be created utilizing the cutting-edge low-injection pressure over-moulding or LIPO method, which will lower the bezel size to 1.55mm. Furthermore, LIPO display technology is said to assist Apple in making the iPhone 15 Pro Max somewhat thinner.
Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max power and performance
The iPhone 15 Pro Max will be equipped with Apple’s cutting-edge A17 Bionic chip. According to Unknownz21’s source, the SoC will include a six-core CPU and six-core GPU design. This processor is said to be built on TSMC’s cutting-edge 3nm technology, making it more power efficient than the A16 Bionic, which was built on a 4nm process.
Unknownz21 also claimed that the iPhone 15 Pro Max would have 8 GB of RAM, a first for an iPhone. However, it is possible that it will be confined to the greater capacity variant. The new CPU is supposed to make the iPhone 15 Pro Max 10 to 15% more powerful than its predecessor, and the additional graphics core is likely to make the iPhone 15 Pro Max the greatest gaming smartphone.
Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max cameras
According to reports, the iPhone 15 Pro Max is Apple’s greatest photography smartphone yet. The triple camera solution is expected to include a 48 MP primary shooter, a 12 MP ultra-wide angle lens, and, for the first time, a periscope zoom lens, similar to the one found on the Galaxy S23 Ultra, allowing the iPhone to deliver 5x/6x optical zooming capability. According to URedditor, this will be a feature exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
iPhone 15 Pro Max battery
The iPhone 15 Pro Max will also have a slightly larger battery, which, when combined with the more efficient A17 Bionic chip, should provide longer battery life. According to ITHome, the iPhone 15 Pro Max will feature a mammoth 4852 mAh battery, the largest battery ever on an iPhone, as well as up to 33W rapid charging via the USB Type-C connection.
Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max pricing
According to reports, Apple will raise the costs of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max by at least $100. This suggests that the 128 GB edition of the iPhone 15 Pro Max might start at roughly $1,199. Similarly, Apple is likely to provide up to 2TB of internal storage this time around, making it one of the first mainstream smartphones to offer this amount of memory.
