iPhone 12 Pro Max price: how much is the iPhone 12 Pro Max and should you buy it?

Three cameras, a modern design and a new choice of colours. The latest Pro is a real eye-catcher, but what makes the iPhone 12 Pro Max stand out? And does its price match the quality of the product? Apple has already released Pro and Pro Max variants with the iPhone 11. And each time, we ask again what the exact differences are and whether the price is worth it. You can find our answer here.

iPhone 12 Pro Max Specifications

Before we get into the price details, here's the iPhone 12 Pro Max spec sheet to give you an idea of what you're buying:

iPhone 12 Pro Max



160.8 x 78.1 x 7.4 mm


226 g

Screen Size

6.7 inches


A14 Bionic


3 x 12 MP sensors

Storage Capacity

128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB

Battery Life

Video playback: 20 hours

Video streaming: 12 hours

Audio playback: 80 hours

At first glance, the size of the screen and battery capacity stand out, which are usually the arguments for the Max. On top of that, the performance is impressive with the A14 Bionic Chip.

How long does the battery last on the iPhone 12 Pro Max?

This is certainly one of the most important questions when choosing a phone. The short answer: a long time! How long exactly depends on how much you use your phone. As you can see in the table above, even with continuous streaming, you can count on 12 hours of battery life. If just straight audio playback: 80 hours, which is over 3 days.

How long does it take to recharge the battery? With the 20W power adapter, the phone goes from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes. So an impressive result here too.

Are there any differences between the cameras of the iPhone 12 Pro and the 12 Pro Max?

Overall, the phones' cameras are very similar since both have nearly the same three lenses and take impressive photos. It's only in 'low light' or night mode that the iPhone 12 Pro Max has an edge. This is due to a larger sensor that captures light and processes it better. The Pro Max's zoom is also a little ahead of the iPhone 12 Pro, but the average person probably won't notice the difference.
