Recently, a series of comparisons between the iPhone 15 Pro Max and the iPhone 14 Pro Max concerning their respective technical specifications came to light. The iPhone 15 Pro Max appears to have a lower height and width when compared to the iPhone 14 Pro Max, at least according to the specifications that have been provided. Nonetheless, the iPhone 15 Pro Max has a greater thickness than its predecessor.

The “smart island” design is still present, and it is 5% thicker than before. The most recent CAD renders reveal that the camera hump on the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be significantly smaller than what was originally anticipated. In comparison to the iPhone 14 Pro Max, it will be 0.59 millimetres shorter.
Previous images of the iPhone 15 Pro show that the frame will be made of metal for the body of the device. The display has a thinner bezel around the edge, the back panel is made of glass, and the glass is slightly curved at the edge to create a transition that is more flush with the frame. It is somewhat comparable to the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, in addition to the brand-new M2 MacBook Air.
There does not appear to have been much of a modification made to the screen, and the Smart Island is still present. The screen brightness of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra (or Pro Max), however, is said to reach 2500 nits, according to a rumour.
The two different iterations of the iPhone 14 Pro series both reach a maximum brightness of 1000 nits on average. The maximum brightness that can be achieved with HDR content is up to 1600 nits, while the maximum brightness that can be achieved when used outside is 2000 nits.
The USB Type-C port will be utilised by the iPhone 15 series
In addition, Apple has shifted from the Lightning connector to the USB Type-C port for the iPhone 15 series. Nonetheless, Apple will continue to require MFi certification for USB Type-C devices. Also, the thickness of the camera that is mounted on the rear of the fuselage has been increased compared to the previous series. The gap between the iPhone and Android camp is widening as a result of the lack of significant improvement in the iPhone’s photographic capabilities over the past few years.
Because it does not have a periscope telephoto lens, the iPhone is unable to compete with Android phones in telephoto scenarios. Because of this, people are speculating that the recently added periscope telephoto lens on the internet might have something to do with the thickness of the object. However, the design of the lens module as a whole has not been altered in any other way.
Within the confines of a square module can be found three lenses as well as a LiDAR scanner. When compared to the iPhone 14 Pro Max, the iPhone 15 Pro Max is noticeably more compact and has a thinner profile overall. Nonetheless, the body is more robust, and the lens module has taken on a concave shape.
The iPhone XS Max is currently included on Apple’s “Hot Search” list.
It was reported on Weibo that the phrase “iPhone 15 Pro Max or half a catty” was at the top of the most searched for topics list. On Weibo, one of the userbase’s posts related to this topic included the phrase “my little finger bears a weight that it shouldn’t bear at this age.” It was rather evident that he was talking about the weight of this apparatus.
This supporter has an iPhone 13 Pro, and as a result of holding the phone with his little finger for an extended period of time, he has a noticeable “indentation” on his little finger. The iPhone 13 Pro weights 203 grammes, making it one of Apple’s mobile phones that is not the heaviest model available. The weight of the iPhone 13 Pro Max is 238 grammes, and the weight of the iPhone 14 Pro Max is 240 grammes.
When compared to earlier iterations of the iPhone, recent iterations have seen an upward tendency in terms of their respective weights. Around 250 grammes is expected to constitute the weight of the Pro Max in the second part of this year. The rise in weight has already been met with disapproval from supporters, who refer to it as “half a catty of fruit.”
In addition to this, information that has been made public on the internet suggests that the thickness of the iPhone 15 Pro Max has grown by 5%, reaching 8.25 millimetres. In addition to this, the iPhone 15 Pro Max retains the smart island design that was introduced with the prior generation of iPhones. MFi verification will still be enforced by Apple, which means that the Android data cable cannot be used directly with the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
