iPhone 12 Pro Max vs iPhone 11 Pro Max display
- 6.7 inches vs 6.5 inches
- Ceramic Shield vs Gorilla Glass
- 2778 x 1284 vs 2688 x 1242 pixels
They will also sport a different display size, as Apple is bumping things up a notch to 6.7 inches from 6.5 inches on the 11 Pro Max. Will that also increase the overall size of the iPhone 12 Pro Max in comparison? Thankfully, not that much, as the iPhone 11 Pro Max is already one big device.
iPhone 12 Pro vs iPhone 11 Pro display
- 6.1 inches vs 5.8 inches
- Ceramic Shield vs Gorilla Glass
- 2436 x 1125 vs 2532 x 1170 pixels
- 458 PPI vs 460 PPI
The 5.8″ iPhone 11 Pro to 6.1″ iPhone 12 Pro will not even be the biggest difference in hair display sizes this year, as we also have the 5.4″ iPhone 12 that will sport a screen that is half an inch shorter than the 6.1″ iPhone 12 Max. Still, the smaller iPhone 12 Pro model gets a significant bump in display size, and is becoming more akin to a Pro model.
The 2019-2021 iPhone models evolution
iPhone 12 Pro/Max vs iPhone 11 Pro/Max specs
- Apple A14 5nm vs Apple A13 7nm chipset
- 128GB vs 64GB base storage
- 5G vs 4G LTE connectivity
- 6GB vs 4GB RAM
- Larger batteries
- 6 vs 4 meters water-resistance depth
All four of Apple’s new iPhone 12 2020 models are powered by the A14 Bionic chipset announced with the iPad Air 4. It’s the first 5nm chip found inside a smartphone. With 15 billion transistors inside (compared to the 8.5 billion in the A13 Bionic), the A14 Bionic delivers not so much a nice jump in performance but improved energy consumption.
An upgrade of 6GB RAM will reportedly be deployed on the Pro models, with 4GB on the other variants. All four phones are expected to work with both high-band mmWave 5G signals and the low to mid-band Sub-6GHz 5G signals.
iPhone 12 Pro/Max vs iPhone 11 Pro/Max camera
- 2.5x vs 2x telephoto optical zoom
- Sensor Shift OIS vs Single OIS
- 5mm larger 7P vs 6P lenses
- F/1.6 vs F/1.8 wide angle lens aperture
- Larger sensor and pixels for better low-light shots
- LiDAR camera for AR/VR apps
- Dolby Vision video, Smart HDR 3, Deep Fusion 2, Night Mode Portraits
While the processor speed and memory upgrades are expected for each new iPhone generation, and 5G connectivity is long overdue for Apple’s handsets, perhaps the biggest surprise would be the 12 Pros’ camera kit enhancements compared to the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max generation.
The camera lenses on the new phones will be 5mm larger in length and width. With that said, we are to see an improvement in low-light photography on the 2020 iPhones with 2 to 3 times faster autofocus and Night Mode Timelapse.
Image stabilization will also be improved as the iPhone 12 Pro/Max have a new technology called Sensor Shift image stabilization. This adjusts the sensor to remove the “shakes” instead of the lens. This, along with the extra LiDAR camera, is included in the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro as well.
Apple was reportedly testing a 64MP camera for the upcoming series, but engineers were not happy with the outcome so you it’s 12MP sensors for this year. Apple has also improved the microphones on the iPhone 12 series including the audio zoom feature.
To ensure the results are impressive, Apple is reportedly planning to increase the aperture of the wide-angle camera to f/1.6. This will allow the sensor to capture significantly more light, compared to the f/1.8 aperture on the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max.
iPhone 12 Pro Max vs iPhone 11 Pro Max battery life
- 4400mAh vs 3969mAh battery
- 20 hours of video playback
- 12 hours of streaming video
- 80 hours audio playback
Apple is packing the iPhone 12 Pro Max with a 4400mAh battery providing a 10.9% hike from the 3969mAh battery inside the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The logic board on the iPhone 12 Pro models is split into two parts and a ribbon cable connects them to help accommodate the larger battery used in each “Pro” unit.
We only have a small bump in display size from the iPhone 11 Pro Max to the iPhone 12 Pro Max, so the larger battery and more frugal 5nm A14 processor should bring a significant jump in the 12 Pro Max battery life compared to the already excellent battery endurance on the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
iPhone 12 Pro vs iPhone 11 Pro battery life
- 3687mAh vs 3046mAh
- 17 vs 18 hours of video playback
By now, it’s clear that two of the four new iPhone models in fall 2020 ship without a charger in the box, the cheaper iPhone 12 and 12 Max models, as those would’ve otherwise probably shipped with Apple’s pathetic 5W chargers that nobody wants anyway.
On the other hand, Apple is going to offer a brand new charger for those that you will be able to buy separately if you want fast charging, or keep using your good ol’s 5W or 18W bricks that are lurking somewhere in your drawer.
So far, three capacity models above have appeared under the A2471, A2431, A2466 iPhone battery model numbers, and the biggest one of those goes to the iPhone 12 Pro, as the Pro Max is landing with a 4400mAh unit. The current iPhone 11 Pro crop has a smaller battery pack but its display and overall sizes are also smaller than the 12 Pro, so the battery life may not be directly related to the bump in capacity.
iPhone 12 Pro/Max vs iPhone 11 Pro/Max prices
- from $999 for the base iPhone 11/12 Pro
- from $1099 for the base iPhone 11/12 Pro Max
