It’s not normal to change iPhones with every generation. This is more than obvious since the mobile phone industry has reached a peak of development that improves its devices every year, but in very small steps, so it is worth changing devices every two or three years, and sometimes even years. At least sometimes even more.
Therefore under a Three-year cycle This would mean iPhone 12 series owners will be looking for replacement devices. For the iPhone 12 Pro Max, the most obvious upgrade would be the iPhone 15 Pro Max. But, Are there many differences? Let’s check it out below.
Aesthetic and physical difference
As far as the more visual differences are concerned, what might initially surprise us is that in the hand, the iPhone 12 Pro Max isn’t all that different from the iPhone 15 Pro Max. In fact, the current trend we have in the design of iPhones started with the iPhone 12, a trend that has continued except for small changes in the 15 Pro, such as the inclusion of titanium, which we will see later The essence of both devices is the same.
The main differences can be observed in the used material that is, the The iPhone 12 features a stainless steel body while the 15 has a titanium version. We also find the famous on the site switch How to turn iPhone 12 Pro Max on and off while the latest generation of iPhone has the Action button comes from the iPhone 15 Pro. Even in his below we find the Lightning port, a port that we finally said goodbye to in the 15th generation with the introduction of the new USB-C. Of course, if you want to use the maximum speed standards that the iPhone offers, you have to buy a cable that costs 79 euros. Cheap. Yes indeed.
We have to talk about it too Dimensions of both devices. Specifically, the iPhone 12 Pro Max has dimensions of 16.8 x 78 x 1 x 0.74 cm and a weight of 226 grams, while the iPhone 15 Pro Max is 15.88 x 7.67 x 0.83 cm thick and 221 grams weighs. The iPhone 15 Pro Max is only five grams lighter than the 12 after the introduction of titanium, although it actually gives that feeling much easier.
He Screen size remains the same since the first generation of the Pro Max. Specifically, we find a 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR screen, but it has undergone some internal modifications. We will describe them below.
Firstly, the latest generation of iPhone has a slightly higher resolution screen where we find 2,796 x 1,290 pixels, compared to 1,778 x 1,284 pixels on the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Consequently we have an increase of 458 pixels per inch to 446 ppi. (pixels per inch). In addition, it is important to highlight that the iPhone 15 Pro screen has the following always on the screen an aspect that Generation 12 does not include, but neither does Standard 12. Other elements are still present in both models, such as: B. HDR support, Wide Color (P3), Haptic Touch, True Tone and a contrast ratio of 2 million to one.
After all, we have to do it Talk about shine. The iPhone 12 Pro manages 800 nits of brightness, compared to 1,200 nits of maximum brightness for HDR content. These are high values and it is noticeable that Apple has significantly improved the brightness of the device, especially when we work at maximum brightness, where on the iPhone 15 Pro Max we get a peak performance of 1,000 nits of maximum brightness and 1,600 nits of maximum brightness. Maximum HDR, although brightness can reach 2,000 nits. These values are much higher than the iPhone 12 Pro Max, which doesn’t even come close.
