Resource experts say: due to the increased dimensions of the case, some elements inside are located differently compared to other, more miniature twelfth “iPhones.”
IFixit also confirmed that the 12 Pro Max uses a camera with an enlarged (approximately 47%) 12MP sensor. Apple did not lie about the sensor-shift system, designed to neutralize the user’s hand movements when shooting. And the resource engineers noted that due to its dimensions, the 12 Pro Max housing contained a larger and more powerful Taptic Engine vibration motor and speakers.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max has a large L-shaped battery with a capacity of 14.13 Wh. The same iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro use 10.78 Wh batteries, the iPhone 12 mini – 8.57 Wh. But there is a nuance: in last year’s iPhone 11 Pro Max, the battery, albeit insignificantly, was still larger – by 15.04 Wh.
The maintainability of the device was rated at six out of ten points. 3DNews clarifies: experts noted the ease of replacing the display and battery and the modularity of most components. The smartphone could have gotten a higher score if not for the use of custom screws, water-resistance, and the need to replace the entire case to replace the back’s broken glass.
