iPhone 12 Pro Max, a possible combination device

The iPhone 12 Pro Max is a large model. It has a 6.7-inch screen, like the iPhone 13 Pro Max. The 12 Pro Max is pleasant to use in everyday life but is slightly inferior to the 13 Pro Max in terms of display quality. Its refresh rate is lower, giving the newer model a slight edge. There is also a significant difference in the memory capacity of the two smartphones. The iPhone 12 Pro Max is available in different versions, from 128 to 512 GB, but the iPhone 13 Pro Max can provide the same but also go up to 1TB too. The iPhone 12 Pro Max has a special feature however with the USB-OTG port, which allows the device to be connected to a tablet or a controller by using a cable. This is not possible on the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

iPhone 13 Pro Max, more memory and more power

The newer iPhone 13 Pro Max is literally an upgrade on the 12 Pro Max. For example, it is more powerful when taking pictures, and this is more noticeable in low-light conditions. The screen interface is also a lot smoother, which is ideal for those who consume a lot of video content or for those who like to play the latest video games. This is due to Apple's latest chip with the A15, whereas the 12 Pro Max has the A14 Bionic chip only.

The iPhone 12 Pro Max is more than suitable for regular use. Users looking for a smartphone that is versatile, fun to use and stylish will be pleased. For those who are more demanding when it comes to photography or video, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is a better choice. Its performance will be particularly appreciated for this particular usage.

The iPhone 13 Pro Max price starts at £701 on Back Market. The price for the iPhone 12 Pro Max can be as low as £456.
