The gigantic iPhone XS Max has just been announced and it is by far the largest iPhone from Apple to date with a hand-stretching Plus-sized display and brand new specifications.
It has a 6.5-inch OLED screen that optimizes the real estate compared to last year's iPhone with a 5.8-inch display. It connects to the smaller iPhone XS as the 2018 iPhone this year.
How big is the iPhone XS Max? The dimensions are about the size of the iPhone 8 Plus, which has a 5.5-inch screen, so do not be fooled by the 6.5-inch screen size.
The 12 MP cameras with double lens on the back should also not be fooled. Apple continues to stick to 12 MP photos, for sure, but there is a big sensor and a backstage software upgrade here. You get better photo & # 39; s and advanced camera controls from the iPhone XS Max.
The main camera on the back has an aperture of f / 1.8 and an improved True Tone flash, and the telephoto lens is f / 2.4. Both cameras behind have OIS. On the front is a faster 7MP selfie camera with an f / 2.2 sensor.
Expect faster performance and longer battery life thanks to the A12 Bionic chipset and space for more battery capacity. Apple showed the new gold color during his event.
Oh, and it is pronounced as & # 39; iPhone 10S Max & # 39 ;, says Apple Senior VP Phil Schiller, not iPhone Excess Max, and the XS certainly does not stand for extra small ones.
More important than new specifications is the software, and Apple says that the new camera system on the iPhone XS Max uses smart HDR. Even background photos with backlighting must contain details.
With the power of the A12 Bionic chip, you can use the iPhone XS phones to adjust the depth of field, something that, according to him, is not possible on another camera on a phone before. Before you can adjust for light, you can now adjust for the depth of field.
The iPhone XS Max will, thanks to its size, have Apple's largest battery ever. It has DSDS (or Dual Sim Dual Standby). Apple has added its eSIM technology, which it lends from its mobile iPad line. The iOS software understands the two lines. A dual SIM and eSIM will be how Apple does it in most parts of the world, except in China, where eSIM is not allowed. Well, Apple releases a special Dual SIM iPhone XS Max.

iPhone XS Max price
The price of the iPhone XS Max starts at $ 1,099 (£ 1,099, AU $ 1,799), making it a premium of $ 100 / £ 100 compared to the 5.8-inch iPhone XS and the launch price of the iPhone X last year .
That makes the iPhone XS Max the most expensive iPhone from Apple ever, and given the enormous screen size, that is to be expected. And the & # 39; Max & # 39; price goes up from there.
That is only for the 64 GB version, which for many people has too small internal storage space, even if iCloud storage is enabled. The versions of 256 GB and 512 GB are better recommendations, but contribute to the price.
The iPhone XS Max 256GB version costs $ 1,099 (£ 1,099, AU $ 1,799), while the new and genuine Maxed out & # 39; iPhone XS Max 512GB is $ 1,449 (£ 1,449, AU $ 2,369).

iPhone XS Max design
Apart from the fact that they are bigger, different leaks indicate that the design of the iPhone XS Max will not look so different from the iPhone X it is supposed to be, with Apple probably more on internal upgrades than on stylistic adjustments.
The CAD scheme below, taken over by MySmartPrice and OnLeaks, would be based on the larger screened iPhone. If this is correct, there is very little visual difference between the iPhone XS Max and iPhone X (except the size).
That said, you probably have to prepare yourself to use your iPhone again with two hands, because the iPhone XS Max becomes a monster phone with a 6.5-inch screen. But it will not be to big.
Apple has dragged away the unnecessary edge at the top and bottom (and cut the home button) when upgrading to the iPhone X. So the screen size is a bit misleading if you move from the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus or iPhone 8 Plus – it is not a full inch bigger.
Another scheme (below) shows the dimensions of the rumors iPhone XS Max, with a claimed height and width of 157.2 x 77.1 mm.
That would make the iPhone XS Max smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus (158.4 x 78.1 mm), which would be impressive if you consider that the iPhone XS Max is equipped with a much larger screen (possibly 6.5 inch) .
This roughly corresponds to a rumor that the iPhone XS Max could have an iPhone 8 Plus size housing, despite an inch of extra screen. However, changes to the camera may mean that the phone is 0.2 mm thicker, which means it is 158.4 x 78.1 x 7.7 mm.
A tweet that claims to show the front of the three rumored iPhones shows you how the handsets can vary in size, with slender edges around the screen and the now noticeable notch at the top.
Although the iPhone XS Max is the biggest of the three, the differences between them and the rumors iPhone XS do not seem to be as big as those between the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
View of iPhone XS Max
No surprise here: the iPhone XS Max has a large screen. In fact, it is tipped to have the biggest screen that Apple has ever put on a smartphone.
The iPhone X broke new ground for the company, with its 5.7-inch display away for the 5.5-inch screens we've come to expect since the iPhone 6 Plus in 2014.
The iPhone XS Max, however, could take the iPhone screens to a whole new level, with the most recent rumors that suggest it will rock with a 6.5-inch panel with a pixel density between 480 and 500ppi.
That's a little bigger than the 6.46 inch rumors in August 2017 and the 6.3 inches of a leak in December 2017, but 6.5 inches is more logical – Apple likes to trade clean numbers and we can not see that it gets entangled 3 hand40 hand details details hand hand hand hand details404040 3 hand40404040 3 hand4040404040 3 details40 hand4040404040 3 details40 hand4040 3 3
Not only would that be the largest display on an iPhone, it would also expel other smartphone giants, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, HTC U12 Plus and Huawei P20 Pro.
A number of different sources have pointed to an OLED panel for display on the iPhone XS Max, which would reflect the technology on the iPhone X.

Apple will more than likely announce a new processor at the iPhone launch in September to replace the A11 Bionic in the 8, 8 Plus and X.
If that is the case, you can expect the iPhone XS Max to sport the mentioned processor, and if Apple adheres to its current naming regime, it will be called the A12 Bionic – tipped by the productive Apple analyst. Ming-Chi Kuo.
A separate rumor has pointed to 4 GB RAM next to that new chipset, which would be a step higher than the 3 GB RAM in the X and 8 Plus.
When it comes to details about the cameras in the iPhone XS Max, the news is thin on the floor. Judging by the different leaks we have seen in the design section, it seems that Apple is holding on to the dual cameras on the back and a single selfie snapper.
There is potentially good news in the battery department, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone XS Max could benefit from a power pack of about 3,300 mAh / 3,400 mAh – that's about 25% larger than the battery in the 8 Plus.
Of course, the task will be to control a larger screen, but the overall battery performance can be improved thanks to more efficient software (iOS 12) and hardware (new A12 chipset).
And there is good news for those who often do not have juice anymore, because Apple has the rumor that it is considering to include a quick charger in the box.
