iPhone 15 Pro Max vs. iPhone 15 Pro: A features comparison

Apple introduced its first-ever titanium smartphones, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max at the Wonderlust event on September 12.

Unlike the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max in stainless steel, the 2023 Pro models are designed to be more durable and lightweight and deliver exceptional performance powered by the advanced A17 Pro chip.

However, Apple just didn’t stop at widening the gap between the latest and older Pro models. This year, the Cupertino tech giant has also widened the gap between the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Pro Max and 6.1-inch iPhone 15 Pro.

Although the new iPhone 15 Pro models feature the same design language, their internals are slightly different, especially the camera. Here are all the similarities and differences between the new Pro models.

iPhone 15 Pro Max vs. iPhone 15 Pro: Which should you buy?

If you enjoy larger displays, love photography, and have an extra $100 to spare, then the iPhone 15 Pro Max is the right choice for you. The new titanium finish slightly addresses the concern of carrying a heavy and big mobile and delivers great streaming, gaming and photography/videography experiences.
