iPhone14 Max - What's New?
iPhone 14 Max Summary
iPhone 14 Max is an upcoming mobile by Apple. The phone is rumoured to come with a 90 Hz refresh rate 6.68-inch touchscreen display. The iPhone 14 Max supports wireless charging, as well as proprietary fast charging.
As far as the cameras are concerned, the iPhone 14 Max exact rear camera configuration is not known at the moment but we can expect a multi-camera setup (Unspecified) as with most modern smartphones. It is rumoured to sport a single camera setup for selfies, an Unspecified primary camera.
iPhone 14 Max is based on iOS 16.
Connectivity options on the iPhone 14 Max are said to include Lightning.
iPhone 14 Max size and design
The iPhone 14 Max is expected to feature a 6.7-inch display, the same size as the rumored iPhone 14 Pro Max. Beyond the Pro lineup, Apple has not offered a screen larger than 6.1 inches.
The above iPhone 14 case leak indicates that the iPhone 14 Max will have two rear cameras, as opposed to three lenses for the iPhone 14 Pro Max. The camera will be wide and ultra-wide, but not telephoto.
According to rumors, the iPhone 14 Max will feature the same design, which means the notch will return.
iPhone 14 Max price
The iPhone 14 Max is rumored to cost $899, according to multiple sources. If the reports are accurate, that would be $100 more than the regular iPhone 14. The iPhone 14 Max could look even more attractive with the iPhone 14 Pro series set to get a $100 price hike – so a $1,099 iPhone 14 Pro and a $1,199 iPhone 14 Pro Max.
In comparison, the 6.6-inch Galaxy S22 Plus costs $999, while the 6.7-inch Google Pixel 6 Pro costs $899. With the regular iPhone 14 starting at $799, I can see a lot of shoppers jumping up to the $899 iPhone 14 Max just to get a larger screen.
iPhone 14 Max cameras
It is rumored that the front cameras on all four iPhone 14 models will receive an upgrade. (opens in new tab)The iPhone 14 Max and other new iPhones will feature auto-focus selfie cameras, which should result in sharper photos, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
To minimize distortions and artifacts in images, the front camera may get a 6-part lens instead of a 5-part lens. As well as a wider f/1.9 aperture, you can expect more light to enter. The back cameras for the iPhone 14 Max and regular iPhone 14 have not been discussed much. The iPhone 14 and 14 Max will continue to offer 12MP wide and ultrawide lenses, as does the iPhone 14 Pro series, which is rumored to feature a 48MP wide camera.
iPhone 14 Max specs
According to multiple reports, the iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 will stick with the current A15 Bionic chip. A16 Bionic will only be available for the iPhone 14 Pro series.
While this seems like a bummer, the iPhone 13 is already the fastest phone we’ve tested, even among the best Android phones, so keeping the same chip should not be a major issue. In addition, the iPhone 14 Max is rumored to have 6GB of RAM, which should improve performance.
The iPhone 14 Max may also feature a lower quality OLED display. Samsung Display will use its older M11 series of OLED displays for the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max/Plus, according to a recent report from The Elec. Newer generation M12 series displays will be reserved exclusively for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. You may not notice a huge difference, but with a bigger screen, you would likely want it to be as good as possible.
