Both iPhone 12 pro and iPhone 12 pro max are the pro models of iPhone 12 series and apple start using pro names on their iPhones in 2019 with iphone 11 series and in my opinion pro means pro display,pro cameras ,and pro performance.

In this article I want compare specs of both iphone 12 pro and iPhone 12 pro max.
Both iPhone 12 pro and iPhone 12 pro max are looks same and feels same in hand but difference is there in terms screen size because iphone 12 pro have 6.1 inch super retina display with OLED technology and iPhone 12 pro max also have same display technology like iphone 12 pro but display size of iPhone 12 pro max is 6.7 inches.

Another main difference is there in terms of camera hardware..yes camera hardware..both iphone 12 pro and iPhone 12 pro cameras layout look like identical and same but in camera hardware department there is lot of differences are there in between both iPhone 12 pro and iPhone 12 pro max.

I hope you already know about that both iphone 12 pro and iPhone 12 pro max have triple camera setup on the back and single 12mp camera on the front.

iPhone 12 pro have 12mp wide camera with f/1.6 aperture, and it has 1.4 micron pixel size , with OIS. and another 12mp telephoto camera with 52mm focal length and this telephoto camera offers 2x optical zoom range, and lastly another 12mp ultrawide camera taking 120° field of view shots.

iPhone 12 pro max have brand new 12mp wide camera with f/1.7 aperture, it has 1.7 micron pixel size and mainly it has sensor shift OIS mechanism for taking great stabilization videos, another brand new 12mp telephoto camera with 65mm focal length and it offers 2.5x optical zoom range and lastly 12mp ultrawide camera with 120° field of view.

The main difference is iPhone 12 pro max slightly bigger wide camera and telephoto camera as compared to iPhone 12 pro.

Apart from that both iphone 12 pro and iPhone 12 pro max have same processor and same build quality.

iPhone 12 pro and iPhone 12 pro max supports 5g network connectivity and only iphone 12 pro max supports mmWave 5g connectivity and iPhone 12 pro support sub6Ghz 5g connectivity.

iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are very similar phones, but there are a few key differences that may make the Pro Max worth the extra $100.
  • Display: Pro Max has a larger, 6.7-inch display than the Pro's 6.1-inch display. This can be a big advantage if you watch a lot of videos or play games on your phone.
  • Battery life: Pro Max also has a larger battery than the Pro, which means you can expect longer battery life between charges.
  • Camera: Pro Max has a slightly better camera system than the Pro, with a larger sensor and a longer telephoto lens. This can be an advantage if you take a lot of photos in low light or if you want to zoom in on faraway objects.
Ultimately, whether or not the iPhone 12 Pro Max is worth the extra $100 depends on your individual needs and preferences. If you want a larger display, longer battery life, and a better camera, then the Pro Max is the way to go. However, if you're happy with the size and battery life of the Pro, and you don't need the extra camera features, then you can save yourself some money by going with the Pro.
