iPhone Models In Order : Complete List With Release Date (UPDATED)


iphone models in order

To date, that is, until 2022, the answer is 37. Since 2007, Apple has released 37 iPhones. Isn't it crazy? All of the iPhones models in order are listed below with the respective release dates.

Apple's iPhone launches and release dates have shifted a lot over the years, but in the last half-decade, the company has settled into a routine with its iPhone releases.

They usually debut in Q3 and then have an early Q4 release date – this has been the case since around 2012.

This usually means that solid iPhone leaks begin in the first half of the year. As the year progresses and the release of the new iPhone approaches, the leaks become more frequent and detailed.

By the time a new iPhone is released, we usually have a pretty good idea of all of its new specs and features.

According to the iPhone release date history chart below, Apple favors September/November for release dates. And the reason is simple: it's just before the busiest shopping season of the year, the run-up to Christmas.

Mapping Out The Different “iPhone Eras”

All the iPhone models in order to date show a lot of iPhones, as you can see. Apple has redesigned, reimagined, and completely overhauled the iPhone over the last 12 years, progressing from a tiny, plastic device (iPhone 3G) with less memory than a $2 USB stick to increasingly larger, more powerful phones that, by 2022, will give most laptops a run for their money in terms of performance and processing power.

The iPhone has gone through several "eras" over the years, including the 3.5in era, the 4in era, and, most recently, the 5+ inch era with its latest releases, the iPhone 12 range (but these will soon be replaced by the iPhone 13, of which there will be four distinct models).

First Came The Home Button, Then TouchID And, Finally… FACE ID

Similarly, Apple's iPhone has undergone significant changes in terms of how users interact with the device. We had the home button at first.

From the release of the iPhone 3G until the release of the iPhone 5s, which introduced TouchID, Apple's fingerprint reader, the standard home button remained in place.

TouchID stuck around for a while too; here are all the iPhones that feature TouchID:

  • iPhone 5s
  • iPhone 6
  • iPhone 6 plus
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s plus
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPhone SE, SE 2020, and SE 3 (2022)

Apple ditched TouchID in favour of FACE ID on the iPhone X – or iPhone 10 – a new biometric technology that allowed users to unlock and securely access their iPhone by simply looking at it.

FACE ID became Apple's de facto method of unlocking and accessing iPhones from that point forward. TouchID made a comeback in the iPhone SE 2020, a redux of the iPhone 8 with Apple's phenomenal A13 CPU.

The iPhone SE 2020 is also the most affordable iPhone Apple has ever produced, costing $399.99 (or £419 in the UK).

All iPhone Models in Order : Released To Date (Oldest To Newest)

 

iPhone

The first iPhone was released in 2007. It was Apple's first mobile device, and it received a lot of flak from the press at the time. Because it did not support 3G and instead relied on quad-band GSM with GPRS and EDGE, the phone was dubbed the iPhone 2G. The entry-level iPhone cost $499, and thousands of people lined up outside Apple Stores to buy one after Steve Jobs announced it.

iPhone-2g

While the iPhone 2G was largely responsible for changing the public's perception of what a cellphone should look like, it was also a prototype for future iPhones. The iPhone featured a fully functional touchscreen, no keyboard, and was powered by iPhone OS, a brand-new operating system at the time.

  • 115 x 61 x 11.6 mm Dimensions
  • 3.5-inch screen with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels
  • 412 MHz ARM 11 CPU
  • Lithium-ion non-removable battery

iPhone 3G

The iPhone 3G was the iPhone's successor; it added a lot of features, but the most important one was the ability to access 3G mobile data (specifically tri-band UMTS/HSDPA). Apple didn't change the design of the phone; it ran the same software as its predecessor, and the internal specifications, with the exception of connectivity, were largely unchanged.

 

iphone 3g

Apple's first phone to use "fast" mobile data was the iPhone 3G. The iPhone 3G was described by reviewers as an improved version of its predecessor, but many were disappointed by the price – the iPhone 3G was significantly more expensive than its competitors. But this was all part of Apple's strategy; the company knew that high prices would turn it into an "event," something to be coveted and lusted after.

  • Dimensions: 115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3 mm
  • Screen Size: 3.5 inches, 320 x 480 pixels
  • CPU: 412 MHz ARM 11
  • Battery: Non-removable Li-Ion battery

iPhone 3Gs

In terms of design, the iPhone 3Gs was very similar to both the iPhone 3G and the iPhone 3G. The main difference with this phone was its speed, as Apple increased both the CPU and the phone's memory. It also worked; the iPhone 3Gs was one of the best-selling phones of its time, bringing millions of new users into Apple's fold.

Apple also updated the cameras on the iPhone 3Gs, adding video recording support and increasing the main camera's megapixels. Apple gained a lot of new friends as a result of these changes. The phone was well received by the press and the public; Apple's iPhone 3Gs sold well and remained on the market for a few years before being phased out in 2012.

  • Dimensions: 115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3 mm
  • Screen Size: 3.5 inches, 320 x 480 pixels
  • CPU: 600 MHz Cortex-A8
  • Battery: Non-removable Li-Ion battery

iPhone 4

The iPhone 4 was a significant step forward for Apple. It was the first time the company completely redesigned the iPhone, and the public reacted positively. When it first came out, I remember thinking it was absolutely stunning, with its elegant styling and high-quality materials. Apple also improved the specifications and hardware, giving the impression that this was the phone it had been working on since 2007.

iPhone_4

Apple's first system-on-a-chip, the A4, was inside, along with a heavily updated, new version of iOS (iOS 4), multi-tasking (for the first time), and the highest resolution display Apple had ever produced, dubbed "Retina Display." The iPhone 4 was a smash hit, with 600,000 pre-orders within 24 hours of its release.

  • Dimensions: 115.2 x 58.6 x 9.3 mm
  • Screen Size: 3.5 inches, 640 x 960 pixels
  • CPU: 1.0 GHz Cortex-A8
  • Battery: 1420 mAh battery

iPhone 4s

The iPhone 4s resembled the iPhone 4 from the outside. On the inside, however, it was a different story; it came with Apple's latest A5 processor, an 8MP rear camera that could record 1080p video, and, of course, Siri, Apple's voice assistant.

iPhone_4s

The iPhone 4s was well-received by the press; early reviews praised Siri, and Apple's new dual-core A5 processor received high praise. Overall, the iPhone 4s took some significant steps forward in terms of specifications, overall performance, and features, despite being rather incremental in design. Nobody had even heard of voice assistants at the time, much less had one built into their iPhone.

  • Dimensions: 115.2 x 58.6 x 9.3 mm
  • Screen Size: 3.5 inches, 640 x 960 pixels
  • CPU: Dual-core 1.0 GHz Cortex-A9
  • Battery: 1432 mAh battery

iPhone 5

The iPhone 5 resembled the iPhone 4s in appearance, but it included some significant upgrades. The fact that it was the first iPhone to support 4G LTE was the most significant feature. Furthermore, it was equipped with Apple's newly released A6 processor, which brought with it some significant performance improvements.

iPhone_5

The iPhone 5 resembled the iPhone 4s in appearance. However, there were some physical differences. For starters, it had a different aspect ratio (16:9) than the 4s, making it slightly longer. The iPhone 5 was, however, thinner and lighter than the 4s, thanks to Apple's clever engineering. It also sold exceptionally well; in the first 24 hours after its release, Apple received 2 million pre-orders.

  • Dimensions: 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm
  • Screen Size: 4.0 inches, 640 x 1136 pixels
  • CPU: Dual-core 1.3 GHz Swift (ARM v7-based)
  • Battery: 1440 mAh battery

iPhone 5s

The iPhone 5s resembled the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4s in appearance, but it was a completely different beast. Apple's new A7 CPU was inside, along with Apple's new M7 co-processor, which was in charge of things like step-counting. The most significant change, however, was the removal of the home button in favor of TouchID.

iPhone 5s

TouchID had a significant impact on the smartphone market. It also contributed to Apple's billion-dollar revenue from Apple Pay. Overall, the iPhone 5s appeared to be a bit drab. However, in retrospect, the iPhone 5s was one of Apple's most significant releases. It was Apple's first iPhone with a half-decent camera, and it popularised fingerprint scanners.

  • Dimensions: 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm
  • Screen Size: 4.0 inches, 640 x 1136 pixels
  • CPU: Dual-core 1.3 GHz Cyclone (ARM v8-based)
  • Battery: 1560 mAh battery

iPhone 5c

At launch, the iPhone 5s was joined by the iPhone 5c. It didn't have TouchID, which was only available on the iPhone 5s. It did, however, come in a variety of colors, and that was about it. The iPhone 5c was essentially a brighter version of the iPhone 5. It didn't get a lot of press, but it sold a lot of copies, and you could see people wearing them all over town.

iPhone_5c

What was the appeal of the iPhone 5c? It wasn't because of the reviews, which were dreadful. No, the iPhone 5c's popularity stemmed from the fact that it was A) inexpensive for an iPhone, and B) came in a variety of colours, making it look fairly unique. I had the green one, but I didn't keep it for long, trading it in for an iPhone 5s after about two months.

  • Dimensions: 124.4 x 59.2 x 9 mm
  • Screen Size: 4.0 inches, 640 x 1136 pixels
  • CPU: Dual-core 1.3 GHz Swift (ARM v7-based)
  • Battery: 1510 mAh battery

iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus

Next on our list of iPhone models to order is the 6.

Apple's release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus stunned the world after years of essentially the same design. Not only were they the largest iPhones Apple had ever released, but they were also the last iPhones with a 4in display. And this infuriated a lot of people, though they would be appeased shortly after the iPhone SE was released.

iPhone_6

When was the iPhone 6 released? On September 19, 2014, Apple released the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were the iPhone's eighth generation, and they brought with them some significant changes to the device's functionality.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were notable because they were the first time Apple's industrial design had been updated since the iPhone 4. The iPhone 6 Plus also featured a 5.5-inch 1080p display, making it the largest iPhone display ever. People were taken aback, scared, and perplexed. Despite this, a sufficient number of people purchased the phones.

Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has remained one of the company's most popular models to date. People, after all, seem to enjoy change, don't they?

Specs: iPhone 6

  • Dimensions: 138.1 x 67 x 6.9 mm
  • Screen Size: 4.7 inches, 750 x 1334 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A8 (20 nm)
  • Battery: 1810 mAh battery

Specs: iPhone 6 Plus

  • Dimensions: 158.1 x 77.8 x 7.1 mm
  • Screen Size: 5.5 inches, 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A8 (20 nm)
  • Battery: 2915 mAh battery

iPhone SE

Remember how I said a lot of people were upset about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus's size? It got so bad that Apple did something completely un-Apple: it listened to its customers and released the iPhone SE to appease those who wanted a smaller, but equally powerful iPhone.

iPhone SE

The iPhone SE went on to become a huge hit. I still have one, and it still works great, despite the fact that it now feels very small. However, the fact that it still functions and receives iOS updates should tell you everything you need to know about why people adore iPhones.

  • Dimensions: 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm
  • Screen Size: 4.0 inches, 640 x 1136 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A9 (14 nm)
  • Battery: 1624 mAh battery

iPhone 6s & 6s Plus

iPhone 6s

 

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus were incremental updates that continued where the iPhone 6 series had ended. They had the same appearance as their predecessors, but inside they had some significant changes. The most notable addition was 3D Touch, which allowed for pressure-sensitive touch inputs such as "peaking" inside an app to pick up a notification without having to open it.

Specs: iPhone 6s

  • Dimensions: 138.1 x 67 x 6.9 mm
  • Screen Size: 4.7 inches, 750 x 1334 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A9 (14 nm)
  • Battery: 1715 mAh battery

Specs: iPhone 6s Plus

  • Dimensions: 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm
  • Screen Size: 5.5 inches, 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A9 (14 nm)
  • Battery: 2915 mAh battery

iPhone 7 & 7 Plus

The iPhone models in order release was a controversial one.

Apple's iPhone 7 was a hotly debated release. It was the first iPhone to be released without a headphone jack, which enraged a lot of people. The iPhone 7 Plus was also the first iPhone to come with a dual-lens camera with optical zoom and OIS.

iPhone 7

The iPhone 7 Plus received all of the major upgrades, but the iPhone 7 retained the same CPU, Apple's A10 Fusion quad-core processor, and benefited from optical image stabilization (OIS) in its single-lens 12MP camera. The iPhone 7 was the smaller, entry-level model. With the exception of the iPhone X, the iPhone 7 Plus became the de facto flagship, setting a trend that Apple would continue for years to come (that phone launched all by itself).

Specs: iPhone 7

  • Dimensions: 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm
  • Screen Size: 4.7 inches, 750 x 1334 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A10 Fusion
  • Battery: 1960 mAh battery

Specs: iPhone 7 Plus

  • Dimensions: 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm
  • Screen Size: 5.5 inches, 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A10 Fusion
  • Battery: 2900 mAh battery

iPhone 8 & 8 Plus 

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were, to put it mildly, uninspiring. There's not much to say about these phones except that they had wireless charging, a slightly faster CPU, and better displays thanks to Apple's True Tone technology, which allowed them to play HDR10 and Dolby Vision content despite not having an HDR-ready display.

iPhone 8

The back panels were also updated by Apple; the iPhone 8 series had a glass back panels. That's all there is to the iPhone 8. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus went on to become extremely popular in the years following their release. Apple kept both models on the market until 2020; they were marketed as Apple's "cheap" iPhones and sold well as a result.

Specs: iPhone 8

  • Dimensions: 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm
  • Screen Size: 4.7 inches, 750 x 1334 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A11 Bionic
  • Battery: 1821 mAh battery

Specs: iPhone 8 Plus

  • Dimensions: 158.4 x 67.3 x 7.5 mm
  • Screen Size: 5.5 inches, 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A11 Bionic
  • Battery: 2691 mAh battery

iPhone X

It's funny how the iPhone models in order list skips the iPhone 9. That's because the 10th year of the iPhone wanted to be a special one, so they jumped straight to the iPhone 10 or iPhone X model.

The iPhone X marked the tenth anniversary of the iPhone, and Apple had a special treat in store for the occasion. Prior to its release, there was a lot of speculation about the iPhone, with a lot of leaks indicating a completely new iPhone, unlike anything we'd seen before. The rumors were correct. Apple's iPhone X was unlike anything else – and not just in terms of appearance.

iPhone X

The iPhone X was the first iPhone to feature an OLED screen with split screen capabilites. It was the first iPhone to have a price tag of $999.99. It was also the first iPhone without a Home button when it was released. Instead, it comes with FACE ID, a new facial-recognition technology that allows users to unlock their phones simply by looking at them. Essentially, the iPhone X was a significant upgrade that set the tone for Apple's iPhone design for the next half-decade.

Specs: iPhone X

  • Dimensions: 143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7 mm
  • Screen Size: 5.8 inches, 1125 x 2436 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A11 Bionic
  • Battery: 2716 mAh battery

iPhone XR

Because of Apple's patented nice-color-options-marketing trick, its low(ish) price, and the fact that it performed brilliantly thanks to Apple's massively powerful A12 Bionic CPU, the iPhone XR was extremely popular; it sold by the boatload. The iPhone XR, like the iPhone X, had a large 6.1-inch display, but it was not an OLED display like the iPhone X.

iPhone XR

Overall, the iPhone XR was Apple's most successful release during the iPhone X era, which included the iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max. In both 2018 and 2019, it was the company's best-selling phone. Thanks to its low price on refurbished iPhone sites like Gazelle, the XR is still selling well – you can get one for less than $400 now.

Specs: iPhone XR

  • Dimensions: 150.9 x 75.7 x 8.3 mm
  • Screen Size: 6.0 inches, 1125 x 2436 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A12 Bionic
  • Battery: 2942 mAh battery

iPhone XS / XS Max 

Both the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max have OLED displays and Apple's A12 Bionic processor. The iPhone XS Max was the de facto flagship, with a larger display (6.4in vs. 5.8in on the XS) and a larger battery, but internal components – including the camera – were identical on both models.

iPhone XS

Prices for the iPhone XS ranged from $999 to $1300+ for the top-tier storage model, though they are now available for under $500. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max received generally positive reviews, with many critics expressing disappointment with Apple's decision to not update the design language.

Keep in mind that this design language has been in place since the iPhone X was released. Keeping in mind Apple's "era" model, the X Era would not end until 2019 with the release of the iPhone 11 line, but even these handsets looked very similar to the XS and XS Max.

Specs: iPhone XS

  • Dimensions: 143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7 mm
  • Screen Size: 5.8 inches, 1125 x 2436 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A12 Bionic
  • Battery: 2658 mAh battery

Specs: iPhone XS Max

  • Dimensions: 157.5 x 77.4 x 7.7 mm
  • Screen Size: 6.4 inches, 1242 x 2688 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A12 Bionic
  • Battery: 3174 mAh battery

iPhone 11 / 11 Pro / 11 Pro Max

Apple's iPhone 11 in the iPhone models in order to date line was noteworthy because it effectively applied the lessons learned with the iPhone X line, namely, that in order to properly address the needs of all consumers, you need a cheaper model, a smaller flagship model, and a flagship with a large display. The iPhone 11 range has been extremely popular, aided in no small part by the fact that the entry-level iPhone 11 is less expensive and still more powerful than both Samsung's Galaxy S10 and its newer Galaxy S20, at $699.99.

iPhone 11

The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone Pro Max were the first iPhones to include triple-lens cameras, a long-awaited feature. Apple put a lot of emphasis on camera performance for the iPhone 11 series, and it paid off – the iPhone 11 Pro camera is fantastic. The iPhone 11 replaced the iPhone XR, and the phones appeared to be similar to the iPhone XS line. The phones were powered by Apple's A13 chipset, which is a massively powerful SoC capable of outrunning most mid-range laptops.

Specs: iPhone 11

  • Dimensions: 150.9 x 75.7 x 8.3 mm
  • Screen Size: 6.1 inches, 828 x 1792 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A13 Bionic
  • Battery: 3110 mAh battery

Specs: iPhone 11 Pro

  • Dimensions: 144 x 71.4 x 8.1 mm
  • Screen Size: 5.8 inches, 1125 x 2436 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A13 Bionic
  • Battery: 3046 mAh battery

Specs: iPhone 11 Pro Max

  • Dimensions: 158 x 77.8 x 8.1 mm
  • Screen Size: 6.4 inches, 1242 x 2688 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A13 Bionic
  • Battery: 3969 mAh battery

iPhone SE (2020)

On April 24, Apple launched the iPhone SE 2020, kicking off the new year with a bang. The iPhone SE 2020 is the cheapest iPhone Apple has ever released, costing $399.99 in the US and £419 in the UK. The iPhone SE 2020 is essentially an iPhone 8 with the same processor as the iPhone 11 Pro Max – Apple's A13 Bionic chip. The SE 2020 has also been shown to be faster than Samsung's Galaxy S20 Ultra, which retails for $1200.

Reviewers praised the iPhone SE 2020, describing it as a "powerhouse" in terms of performance. Damien, one of our reviewers, had a great time testing it out. Because of the phone's small size, battery life isn't as good as we'd like, but that's always the case with smaller form factor phones. What's most intriguing about the iPhone SE 2020 is the possibility of an iPhone SE Plus model, which would replace Apple's cheaper but larger entry-level iPhone, the iPhone 8 Plus.

Apple's iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus still accounted for a sizable portion of the company's iPhone sales in 2019, so it's understandable that the company would want to replace both phones. The iPhone SE 2020 is an iPhone 8 replacement, so all we have to do now is wait for the iPhone SE Plus to arrive. Personally, I'd be very interested in getting my hands on an iPhone SE Plus. The iPhone 8 Plus is still a fantastic phone with a great camera and a large battery. When you add in the A13 chipset, you've got yourself a killer combination!

Specs: iPhone SE (2020)

  • Dimensions: 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm
  • Screen Size: 4.7 inches, 750 x 1334 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A13 Bionic
  • Battery: 1821 mAh battery

iPhone 12 Mini

The iPhone 12 Mini is the company's smallest iPhone in years. The iPhone 12 Mini is a full-featured iPhone with the same specs as the larger iPhone 12. Its size is closer to the original iPhone SE than the current SE 2020 model.

iPhone 12 Mini

You get the same 5.4-inch OLED display, 5G connectivity, Apple's A14 processor, and the same RAM and storage as the iPhone 12. The iPhone 12 Mini is essentially a smaller version of the iPhone 12.

And this is great because, if you're looking for a small iPhone like a lot of people are, you won't have to compromise on hardware or specs. The large and small iPhone 12 are identical in all key areas, just like Google's Pixel phones.

Specs: iPhone 12 mini

  • Dimensions: 131.5 x 64.2 x 7.4 mm
  • Screen Size: 5.4 inches, 1080 x 2340 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A14 Bionic
  • Battery: 2227 mAh battery

iPhone 12

The iPhone 12 replaces the iPhone 11; it's the range's entry-level model, along with the iPhone 12 Mini, though Apple has made some significant changes. For starters, it sports an OLED display. Moreover, 5G.

In terms of design, Apple has made minor changes to the iPhone 12's design. Like the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s, they've all been given a squared-off side profile. This results in a tighter-looking package from front to back when combined with the iPhone X-era design.

Apple's A14 processor powers the iPhone 12, which has a 6.1-inch display. Apple has tweaked the sensors for better low-light performance, so you've got a dual-lens camera once again.

The iPhone 12 isn't a significant upgrade over the iPhone 11, but if you're using an iPhone X or older, the iPhone 12 will feel like a significant upgrade because it's significantly faster, has a better display, supports 5G, and has a new, smarter-looking design.

Specs: iPhone 12

  • Dimensions: 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.4 mm
  • Screen Size: 6.1 inches, 1170 x 2532 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A14 Bionic
  • Battery: 2815 mAh battery

iPhone 12 Pro

This year's iPhone 12 Pro has grown in size. The OLED display on the iPhone 11 Pro was 5.8 inches. This time, Apple has included a 6.1-inch OLED display in the iPhone 12 Pro. With its triple-lens rear-mounted camera unit, it also has the second-best camera in the iPhone 12 lineup.

iPhone 12 Pro

This phone is part of Apple's two-tier flagship offering for 2020, as indicated by the PRO moniker. In comparison to the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini, you get the best internal specs and a more advanced camera unit. If camera technology is important to you, you'll want to get one of the iPhone 12 Pro models.

The iPhone 12 Pro's camera is slightly less impressive than the iPhone 12 Pro Max's. However, for the vast majority of users, the difference will be insignificant. You'll get truly amazing camera performance – still images and video – if you choose one of the Pro models.

However, if you want the best of the best, you'll have to go with the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

Specs: iPhone 12 Pro

  • Dimensions: 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.4 mm
  • Screen Size: 6.1 inches, 1170 x 2532 pixels
  • CPU: Apple A14 Bionic
  • Battery: 2815 mAh battery

iPhone 12 Pro Max

With a 6.7-inch OLED display, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is the largest iPhone Apple has ever released. The internal specifications are nearly identical to those of the iPhone 12 Pro, including the same CPU, storage options, and RAM.

On the iPhone 12 Pro Max, things start to get a little more impressive when it comes to the camera unit. And that's exactly what you're getting here: the largest OLED display possible and Apple's best iPhone camera to date, complete with Apple's ToF LiDAR sensor.

iPhone 12 Pro Max

The iPhone 12 Pro Max has a longer optical zoom and 12x digital zoom than the Pro model, thanks to its longer 65mm-equivalent focal length lens. When you add in features like LiDAR, you've got yourself the most capable iPhone camera to date.

Until 2021, when the iPhone 13 will begin to take shape.

Specs: iPhone 12 Pro Max

  • Dimensions: 160.8 x 78.1 x 7.4 mm

iPhone 13

With the iPhone 13, we're getting closer to the latest iPhone models in order.

iphone 13

Apple's iPhone 13 lineup for 2021 includes four distinct models, just like the iPhone 12 lineup. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini are the entry-level models, while the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are the more expensive models.

With the iPhone 13, Apple improved battery life across the board, bringing performance back up to par with the iPhone 11. You still have 5G, but thanks to the use of larger battery cells in phones, battery life is no longer an issue when using 5G.

Here's a rundown of all the changes Apple made to its iPhone 13 models:

iPhone 13 Updates List

  • The iPhone 13 receives updates from the iPhone 12 Pro, including the same 12-megapixel lens with an f/1.6 aperture as the iPhone 12 Pro in 2020. The iPhone 13's new ultrawide camera features a faster f/2.4 lens, a 120-degree field of view, and sensor-shift stabilisation.
  • Cinematic Mode is available on all iPhone 13 models; this technology will automatically transition focus in real-time, making all phones in the range better for shooting video. To demonstrate how Cinematic Mode works, Apple used a parody of Knives Out.
  • The notch on the iPhone 13 models is smaller. The iPhone 13's notch is 20% smaller than it was previously.
  • The iPhone 13 performs better in 5G than the iPhone 12. According to Apple, the iPhone 13's connection to 5G networks is faster, and it will support over 200 carriers in over 60 countries by the end of 2021.
  • The iPhone 13 is equipped with Apple's new A15 processor. Although these claims have not been tested, Apple claims that the new A15 chipset is 50 percent faster than its nearest competitor (the Snapdragon 888), despite the fact that it is still a 5nm SoC.
  • Two new high-performance cores and four new high-efficiency cores are included in the A15 chipset.

iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone Pro Max Updates List

  • Apple's iPhone 13 Pro models all come with new 120Hz Super Retina XDR screens that are brighter (up to 1000nits).
  • Graphite, gold, silver, and a new light blue are the colors available on the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max.
  • Larger sensors, a wider aperture for the ultra-wide lens, and 3x zoom for the telephoto lens have all been updated in the iPhone 13 Pro lineup, resulting in better low-light performance. The Night Mode feature is now available on all three lenses.
  • A new macro lens has been added to the 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, allowing you to photograph objects from as close as 2cm away. Sensor-shift optical image stabilisation is now available on all Apple Pro models.
  • Cinematic mode is also available on the Pro models, which will also benefit from Apple's new ProRes technology. With the iPhone 13 Pro models, you can film in 4K at 30 frames per second and then edit in more detail afterward using ProRes, a higher quality video format.
  • Because of the use of ProRes, all iPhone 13 Pro models get an extra tier of storage, 1TB.
  • The battery life of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro has been improved by Apple; the iPhone 13 Pro will last 1.5 hours longer than the iPhone 12 Pro, and the iPhone 13 Pro Max will last 2.5 hours longer than the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
