Interesting, for the exact same reason I'd never buy a max. I don't have my phone stored away in a bag 99% of the time. I hold it in my hands, often without support, and use it for hours every day. The impractical size and weight of the max are limiting its usefulness for me.I use my iPhone so much nowadays that the extra size is probably a good thing.
I shouldn't have to buy a phablet to get the top camera specs. There should be consistentcy across the "pro" line.

What you described is exactly what they do with the regular 12 line tho.I get a kick out of posts like this. I mean, I kinda get it - wouldn’t it be nice if we had all the best features in the form factor we wanted? But then, I kinda wish we’d get it at the price of the cheapest one, too. And while we’re at it, I’d like a holograph projector, too.
I don’t believe that Apple took away features from the Pro Max to deliberately differentiate it from the Pro. Apple were simply able to do more with the extra space available to them in the Pro Max case. So you’ve got to put on your big boy pants and decide which feature is more important to you - choice is a horrible thing.
For me personally, I’m kinda torn. I’d like the (slightly) better camera of the Pro Max for taking pictures of my son, but when my corporate phone renewal comes up in January, I imagine I’ll wind up with one of the pacific blue Pro phones, because I do most of my consumption / creation on this year’s iPad Pro with magic keyboard, and I think the size of the Pro Max would be awkward at times. I’ll live with the compromise.
Nah. That iPhone 12 Pro weight is so 2020. 😎Is it weird to anyone else that they didn’t round the weight of iPhone 12 Pro up to 6.67 ounces?
This is funny seeing tech people talking about photography as we simply say the telephoto on Pro (f2.0) should have “1/3 stop more light” than the Pro Max which is just f2.2 but we can only compare lens to the same aperture so it’s moot anyway.As I mentioned f-stop number is the ratio between focal length and aperture diameter, so assuming the sensors are the same size the aperture is still physically 13.6% larger on the Pro Max tele lens.
The USA models have an 5G mmWave antenna. I thinks that's the weight difference.
For real? What’s there to be confused? If you don’t want small phone or pro phone get the 12. If small phone is your thing, get mini. If you’d like pro phone but not big phone get 12 pro. The rest 12 Pro Max. Piece of cake.Was just in a department store and overheard the guy on the Apple desk listing off all the different Apple phone models to a very confused looking group of adults.
Good question. MR had a story on the homepage about cases for the Pro Max coming out in November. I find it hard to believe they wouldn't make leather cases for it.Do we know if Pro Max is getting Apple Leather Cases?
It has been only FOUR years since the iPhone 7 came out, not six. In 2016, Samsung was furiously trying to beat the iPhone 7 to market with its Galaxy Note 7, so they produced the Note with quicker-to-ship exploding batteries!It's been six years since the iPhone 7 came out and the iPhone 12 is only marginally better. At this rate, (of diminishing returns) the iPhone 19 looks like the next iPhone to wait for.. Seven more years
When the 10s came out, I went for the XR because the “guts” were the same. I take a lot of pictures/videos and in all honesty, I’ve been disappointed with the XR. So, I’m upgrading to the 12 pro max...I was torn between the mini and the pro max. Now I’m torn the mini, pro and pro max. Upgrading from the XR and am interested in iPhone Photgraphy.
