We start with the manufacture of the phone, where luxury and solid manufacturing materials. The workmanship is based on a glass structure reinforced with ceramic on the front to protect the screen, with a flat stainless steel frame at right angles to the phone body. But what has changed is the design of the front end…

After years of using the big notch, Apple finally took the step of changing it and replaced it with a long rectangular hole in the middle in the shape of a capsule that Apple calls the Dynamic Island… This part of the screen still includes the light sensors The front camera and the 3D facial recognition sensor. Apple also added a lot of software features to go with the new interface design, where it is used to receive notifications in a new way and more functions.

From the back, the phone appeared matte, as in previous generations, and we find the camera unit inside a large prominent square at the top left, its size increased from the previous generation… It includes the main lenses protected by a layer of sapphire crystal, in addition to a LiDAR sensor, microphone, and flash. The phone supports IP68 water and dust resistance, which guarantees the phone's durability for 30 minutes, up to 6 meters underwater.

The dimensions of the iPhone 14 Pro Max come with a length of 16.07 cm, a width of 7.76 cm, and a thickness of 7.85 mm, and the weight of the phone is 240 grams. Through the dimensions, we can see that the phone has become slightly smaller than the previous generation because Apple has slightly reduced the thickness of the edges surrounding the screen…

The screen came with excellent specifications, the panel is of a type OLED called Super Retina XDR with a size of 6.7 inches, with a quality close to QHD +. Its accuracy is 1290 by 2796 pixels, i.e. with a density of 460 pixels per inch… The screen supports a variable refresh rate of up to 120 Hz via ProMotion technology. This gives great smoothness while using, playing, and navigating between menus while saving power consumption and giving better battery life. The screen supports Dolby Vision technology and the high dynamic dimension HDR10…


Apple has raised the brightness of the screen significantly to a maximum of 2000 nits, which is the highest number on any smartphone … But the most notable addition here is the Always On Display feature that displays the date, clock, notifications, and some content on the screen continuously, It works at a 1 Hz refresh rate to conserve battery. This feature has been on Android phones for years, and we have always been waiting for it to be added to the iPhone…

We come to performance, the most important thing that Apple has always donated… In terms of internal hardware, the phone came with the new Apple processor A16 Bionic, the most powerful processor ever released by the company… It says that it is 40% faster than the best processor on the market today, and more efficient in energy consumption than the previous generation. by 20%. This is thanks to the 4-nanometer manufacturing precision and the six cores.

The new processor is accompanied by an advanced graphics processing unit with five cores, which the company says gives 50% better graphics performance than the strongest competitors. There is also a neural processing unit with 16 cores dedicated to tasks related to artificial intelligence and machine learning.

iPhone 14 Pro Max is available with wide storage capacity options, starting from 128 GB, then 256 GB, 512 GB, up to 1 TB… It is not possible to install an external storage chip. As for the RAM capacity, the company did not announce it, but expectations indicate that there is 6 GB of RAM in the phone.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max will come with the latest Apple iOS 16 operating system, which comes with many updates in line with the capabilities of the new phones from the company.

In terms of connectivity, iPhone 14 Pro Max supports connectivity to 5G networks, but it does not support the installation of two SIM cards at the same time, except in a version dedicated to the Chinese market. And there is support for installing the electronic chip eSIM. However, Apple removed the window for installing SIM cards in the US version, where only the eSIM can be used. Of course, there are stereo headphones, but there is no 3.5 mm input to connect wired headphones.

Apple added in the new iPhone also new features for safety and security… The first is the Emergency SOS service, which allows satellite communication in the event of an emergency… and the other is Crash Detection, which activates the emergency mode directly in traffic accidents.


We move to the camera, which witnessed an evolution in lens accuracy numbers for the first time in a long time… There are three lenses as in the previous generation, the main one has become a 48-megapixel camera with f/1.78 aperture with optical stabilization, and it includes the largest sensor provided by the company, which allows better light absorption…

The lens The second telephoto optical zoom lens with an aperture of f/1.78 … Allows zoom up to 3 times optical and 15 times digital and also contains optical stabilization … The third ultra-wide lens with a wide viewing angle of 120 degrees and an aperture of f/2.2 … This lens also works as a macro sensor and captures things Closer and more sharply than the previous generation… In addition to the main lenses, there is a LiDAR sensor that the company added with the iPhone 12 family… It is a three-dimensional sensor that measures the depth and helps with augmented reality technology services… The performance of night photography has been enhanced in all lenses, as it has become better at absorbing light. Thanks to the larger lenses.

It can shoot 4K videos at 60 fps, as well as slow-motion videos at 240 fps in FHD. The camera also supports HDR photography via Dolby Vision technology… There is also a Cinematic Mode feature for shooting videos with a cinematic-like experience.

The front camera comes with a 12-megapixel camera with an f / 1.9 lens slot and can shoot 4K video at a frequency of 60 frames per second, and also supports the cinematic feature. The front lens is assisted by a 3D sensor for facial recognition.

As for the battery, as usual, Apple did not announce the real capacity of the battery, but it said that it lasts for a full day of use without problems. It supports fast charging of 20 watts via the usual Lightning port from Apple, which charges 50% of the battery within 30 minutes … but the charger is not available inside the phone box and must be purchased separately. We are surprised why Apple did not raise the capacity of fast charging! The phone also supports wireless charging via MagSafe 15W magnetic technology.

As for the iPhone 14 Pro phone, it was identical to the Pro Max phone in specifications except for the screen size, which comes in a smaller size of 6.1 inches, as well as a smaller size for the battery capacity.

The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will be available in black, silver, gold, and violet colors, starting at $ 1,000 for the Pro version, and $1,100 for the iPhone 14 Pro Max version. The pre-order will start on September 9, and the phone will be available in the market on September 16.

In general, Apple made the expected improvements compared to last year's phones, such as upgrading the performance, processor, and developing cameras... but it did not make the expected revolutionary change and we have to wait for more to give our full impression after trying the phone... Now it's your turn... What do you think of the phone?
