Genuine question: apart from screen size and battery, what is the difference?
That's it as far as I saw.
Yep those are the only difference I thought as well.
An awful name! Max is just a horrible name
I was planning on getting the Xs Max thinking that there would be some extra bonus.. but I dont know if it is really worth it. I used to be a plus owner and once I got the X, I actually love the smaller size. I am really torn!
Well it's a good thing that has no effect on the use of your phone.
Same. I now have a dilemma. I like the bigger size but I have the X currently and like the size. Plus the X max size in my pocket would be awkward and difficult to kneel or sit.
You can get a Xs Max at Xmas.
You can see a very detailed side-by-side comparison of all features here...
Apple have clearly moved away from penalising smaller phone users, so Max buyers will get a bigger screen and better battery life. That’s the choice. Personally I’d take the Max over the XS.
I grabbed my old 7 Plus since I saw the new Max is same external dimensions....and it’s a monster! I can’t imagine how awesome it will be to see that size with a full screen though! Might be worth it again to switch...and go back to rear pocket haha...
This maybe the first iPhone In a long time I don’t reserve just so I can make sure in store. Feels just like when the first Plus came out, I even printed/made scaled cardboard cutouts to compare and make sure I wanted the plus hahahaha.
There were rumors the Xs Max would have an extra gig of memory, to 4gb. I guess we'll have to wait for a tear down for that to be confirmed or refuted.
Isnt the Xs Max the same size as the plus???
Still on an iPhone 7+ so for me I keep the same form factor and get more screen real estate. Win win.

Yes. But bigger screen.

Pretty much, that's my thinking too
Don't forget that it will be 20 grams heavier than the 7+ and no Touch ID if that matters to you. But overall, it has better specs than the 7+ in every way
Is the new gold color the same as the old gold from a few phones ago?
Who needs Touch ID when you have face id!
20 grams heavier? I think I'll manage!!
I wasn't disagreeing with you. The XSM is a good upgrade from the 7+
I for one am one of the people that is glad there is no difference between the two. Not everyone wants the bigger phone, so it was quite irritating to see the bigger Plus phones in the past have between cameras and features. This is a welcome change.
Agree. Every two years suits me. iPhone X users won't see much difference day to day.
I also have the 7+ 128gb and was waiting for the XSM this year. I am still on the fence on whether I want to pay $1299 even on installments.
I like how my iPhone 7 is lightweight at 138 grams. The XS Max is 70 grams more at 208 grams, so I'll probably opt for the XS which is 177 grams. The weight may not sound like much, but the little difference can definitely fatigue your hand and arm more. It still has a bigger screen than the 7 Plus (or 8 Plus) and appears to have all the features of the XS Max except it has slightly reduced battery life. I think the weight savings is an acceptable tradeoff. What's kind of odd is that the XR weighs 194 grams even though the chassis is made from lighter weight aluminum rather than stainless steel. The LCD screen must weigh more than the OLED screen?
Don't forget the money you can get by selling your 7+. Might help the £1249 easier to swallow. Especially useful for me because after Apples insane exchange rate and our 20% sales tax mine will cost $1629!!!!
That's why it's "Max" and not "Plus" - only screen size and battery are larger, not enough to get to the Plus level.
