iPhone 11 Pro Max Overview
iPhone launched its latest phone, the iPhone 11, whose sales have driven up Apple's share price significantly since its launch in September 2019. Apple launched a couple of products last year, including the iPhone 11, all of which have done very well in the market, making Wall Street Analysts raise its price target on Apple's shares.
Talking about the phone itself, iPhone 11's design is quite different from its previous models. The design unveiling ignited a meme fire, and Apple found itself at the center of new jokes and memes targeted at the triple set of cameras at the phone's back, which, in the words of the meme lords, look like a stove or the terminator's machine gun.
Although its design seemed dull and a little too rugged for Apple (which is famous for its delicacy and sophistication), the memes died down when people had the chance to look at its features.
The Three Musketeers
To make things more interesting, Apple launched iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max along with the standard phone.
The term "Pro" added with 2 of the variants in this phone is a new marketing strategy. These phones are designed to target people seeking the very best new smartphone in the market. It also symbolizes a phone designed to meet the needs and wants of the "professionals."
Apple, although shocked people with their design, still made people decide that they were willing to compromise on the hideous looking cameras at the back to avail the fantastic features that they were getting.
Now, however, did that happen? Let's take a look at the latest in the trio, the iPhone 11 Pro Max, and its features and also compare it with the previous set of phones to understand what all the hype surrounding this new gadget is about.
IPhone 11 Pro Max Ultimate Features
In this iPhone 11 Pro Max review, we will discuss all the features that set this good-for-the-soul phone apart from all versions of the iPhone 11.
The toll this phone takes on your budget: The Price
If this is the ultimate phone for you ( that you decide upon after reading this entire article), we suggest you start saving now. Yup, cut down on your dine-outs, takeaways, home deliveries, online shopping, and even your grocery budget because this little baby is the heaviest on the pocket of the three. The iPhone 11 Pro Max's starting price is 40% more than the standard iPhone 11.
How heavy it feels in your pocket: The Body of the Phone
With dimensions of 6.2 x 3.1 x 0.32 inches, the iPhone 11 Pro Max's size gives it another lead in terms of how much room it occupies in your pocket. On the contrary the iPhone 11 is a 5.9 x 3 x 0.33 inches and iPhone 11 Pro is 5.7 x 2.8 x 0.32 inches.
Of course, with greater size comes a greater weight, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max is a good 7.97 ounces compared to the 6.63 ounces of iPhone 11 Pro and 6. 84 ounces of iPhone 11. We can, though, reasonably justify these weights, due to the fact that the front and back of the phone are covered with a silky Gorilla Glass, and the framework is made to perfection with stainless steel.
Ooh all the colors that you can get: iPhone 11 Pro Max's colors
The luxurious gadget is available in all the classy colors of Gold, Silver, Space Gray, and Midnight Green. The same color palette has been used for the iPhone 11 Pro while you can get Red, Yellow, Green, Black, White, and Purple in the iPhone 11.
Apple has never been more generous with its color options, and we suggest you make the most out of it while you can because you never know when iPhone may go back to the standard colors it used to offer before and soon you don't have a variety to choose from. That'd be such a bummer *sobs*
It looks good, but can it swim? The iPhone 11 Pro Max Water Resistance Rating
Just like the iPhone X, The iPhone 11 set is also waterproof. With a rating of IP 68, The iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max can stay underwater for 30 minutes with a depth of 4 meters. (13.12 ft, WOW!) while the standard set can go snorkeling for half an hour at a depth of 2 meters (6.56 ft, not bad!), also rated at IP 68. I guess we found our new underwater diving and fishing trips' coverage partner!
How much of the screen size will you get? The iPhone 11 Pro Max Display screen size
The iPhone 11 Pro Max makes sure you don't have to keep scrolling on a screen to read a document as its 6.5-inch wide display is a size good enough to fit any document on one screen.
The other variants come in sizes of 5.8-inch display screen for iPhone 11 Pro and 6.1-inch display screen for iPhone 11. (Doesn't take up much space in your pocket AND still looks big, bold and beautiful? We're in love!)
Will the iPhone 11 Pro Max be a good companion if you're stranded on an Island?: Battery Life
Iphone's bad battery life was probably one of Apple's most prominent weakness, something that was always taken advantage of by competitors and compensated for by their phones. Apple credits its poor timing to the fact that its powerful processors and display screens take up much more battery than average smartphones, thus resulting in much less screen time.
With the iPhone 11 Pro Max, we guess our prayers have been heard, because this phone has the most extended battery life ever to be provided by the Apple product makers in the iPhones.
Its battery life is documented to be roughly 12 hours. We guess it could use more improvement, but hey, they're getting there!. In comparison, the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro give roughly 11 and roughly 10.5 hours of battery life, respectively.
Will it make you look fabulous? The iPhone 11 Pro Max Cameras
Apple's latest gizmo makes you look like a supermodel in the comfort of your own home. Its 12 MP wide (f/1.8) , 12 MP ultra-wide (f/2.4) and 12 MP telephoto (f/2.0) rear camera and a 12 MP (f/2.2) front camera is the same in all the three variants of the iPhone 11 so that you still look great in all your photos regardless of the variant that you choose for yourself.
Can you store your personal photos & videos, favorite tv shows, and still have space for official documents? The iPhone 11 Pro Max Storage
The iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max all have a 6GB RAM and a 64/256/512 GB internal storage. Now read that sentence again and let it sink in. Remember the times when we only had some MBs for RAM and only 1-2 GB for the ROM? Our phones processed heavy apps very slowly, and we had to carry around hard drives and USBs for extra storage! Well, now these delicate devices have the power to hold every sort of data or app that we may ever need in our lifetimes, with lightning-fast speed. Oh, how times have changed!
The Horsepower of the Phone: iPhone 11 Pro Max CPU
The iPhone 11 Pro Max, along with the other two versions, has an A 13 Bionic processor. The A 13 chip has a hexacore, is 7 nm in size has a max CPU clock rate of 2.5 GHz, which Apple claims is seventy percent faster than all the previous iPhones. Now that is a superstar feature all by itself, making the iPhone 11 Pro Max worth buying as soon as possible!
iPhone 11 Pro Max's Scope in Pakistan
Although the iPhone 11 Pro Max's price in Pakistan is a little too much to handle for most of our population, we all know someone who has recently taken a mirror selfie with their brand new iPhone making us all a little jealous and fantasize what it must be like to be able to hold this heavenly technology in our hands.
Apple's marketing,(even though it is not direct), is spot on when trying to lure in customers and make them Apple-fanatics (yes that is a thing). With the entry of Apple's first official distributor in Pakistan, we can sure hope to see a lot more of Iphones in Pakistan now.
Some Final Thoughts
We know by the time you reach the end of this article you've decided that Apple might not top this one for a long time now, Guess what? We do too! Although maybe it tops the iPhone 11 Pro Max in terms of price next year Haha! Well, we're confident that even if they do, Apple's sales won't take a hit because, for most of us, ends justify the means when you get a phone with more features and tech in it that you can ever hope to understand or use in a lifetime.
