Screen and Design
The iPhone 11 Pro Max’s 6.5-inch screen features the largest size among the other models in the generation. It is worth saying that this is the same size found on the panel of the iPhone XS Max, its predecessor, but for users who prefer an even larger screen, the iPhone 12 Pro Max stands out at 6.7 inches.
In terms of resolution, it is 2688 x 1242 pixels, using a panel with OLED technology, which tends to deliver more vivid colors. Also in this regard, the Super Retina XDR panel makes its presence felt, ensuring improvements in brightness control.
Glass and finish receive structure reinforcements to improve water and drop resistance. This time, Apple has invested in stainless steel for the devices, which feature midnight green, gold, silver, and space gray color options.
The design repeats the same as the iPhone XS Max, with a notch at the top for audio output and front camera, so that the change has been left only to the back, where it accommodates the triple arrangement. In that sense, the repetition should not sound like a disadvantage, since the iPhone 12 lineup does not guarantee significant changes either.
There are three cameras in the composition of the iPhone 11 Pro Max’s set, and all of them feature 12 MP. The lenses are distributed between main, with f/1.8 aperture, ultra-wide, with f/2 aperture, and telephoto, this time with f/2.4 aperture.
Compared to the previous generation, the iPhone 11 Pro Max stands out for the extra lens. On the other hand, for photo lovers, it should be taken into consideration that the iPhone 12 Pro Max brings larger sensors, which can result in better photos specifically in low-light environments when the more open angle is used. The front camera, with 12 MP, brings TrueDepth technology for facial recognition.
The processor used in the iPhone 11 Pro Max is the A13 Bionic, a generation earlier than the current one used by Apple. In view of the chipset of the iPhone XS Max, the one used in the phone in question promises 20% more speed in processing and a 40% reduction in battery consumption
In terms of storage, it is possible to find options that start at 64 GB, go through the 256 GB, and reach up to 512 GB of space for data, maximum capacity. Information such as RAM is not disclosed, but it is estimated that at least 6 GB is reserved in this specification.
As for the possibility of memory expansion, iPhones do not usually offer microSD card support, a feature that is repeated in the iPhone 11 Pro Max as well.
The battery has yielded positive reviews, it is even one of the most praised points by the American magazine Consumer Reports, which gave the phone the title of best in the world in 2019.
There is no concrete specification in terms of battery capacity, since Apple does not usually reveal the amount of mAh. The manufacturer only highlighted that the iPhone 11 Pro Max brings five hours more battery life than the previous generation phone. Some analysts estimate the battery to be close to 3,500 mAh, but the calculations are just rumors.
iOS and extra features
The iPhone 11 Pro Max leaves the factory with iOS 13 but can receive the latest operating system, which is iOS 14. In this sense, updating to future versions are not a concern for Apple phones, which can guarantee an advantage for the user in this regard.
Among the features found in the iPhone 11 Pro Max, it is possible to mention Face ID, facial recognition system that replaces the fingerprint reader, and the IP68 water and dust resistance certificate.
