Apple has officially launched the iPhone 14 series, including the top-tier iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models.

If you’re unsure whether to upgrade to the iPhone 14 Pro Max or stay with the iPhone 13 Pro Max, you should be aware of all the differences between the two flagships so you can assess whether the upgrade is worthwhile.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max might be just as powerful but in a more user-friendly shape with a narrower overall screen aspect ratio and a thinner screen border.


iPhone 14 Pro Max Vs. iPhone 13 Pro Max major differences

  • New 48MP main camera
  • Satellite connectivity
  • Always-on display
  • Pill-shaped punch hole (aka the Dynamic Island)
  • Thinner borders, taller aspect ratio for the screen
  • Faster A16 Bionic chip

The iPhone 14 Pro Max from Apple features the new Apple A16 Bionic CPU, a massive improvement over the A15 chipset seen in the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

The iPhone 14 Pro was apparently intended to be Apple’s first device with a 3nm CPU, but it appears that problems will prevent that from happening, and the A16 may instead be constructed using 4nm technology, a smaller step up from the 5nm process used on the 13 series.

Let’s dive into the new camera features of the latest Apple iPhone, despite the fact that it has long been a leader in camera quality, particularly for video recording.

First, the main camera now has a larger 48-megapixel sensor, a massive improvement over the 12-megapixel camera from the previous iteration.

The long-awaited periscope lens is one feature that won’t be included on the iPhone 14 Pro Max. iPhones will not be able to match native long-range zoom lenses this year, something Android rivals like the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra have possessed for several years.

The battery life on the iPhone 13 Pro Max has improved over its predecessor, in part because of the battery’s larger physical capacity. The battery size of the iPhone 14 Pro Max hasn’t been changed by Apple this year, so it’s probably the same 4,352mAh battery.
