    1/6 The biggest change to the iPhone 14 Pro is its front design, where the display design is getting a massive change. The old school display notch is going away in favour of a in-display cutout, just like the Android flagships.  (FrontPageTech)

    iPhone 14 Pro Max is going to be the most exciting luxury smartphone from Apple this year. We are going to see four new iPhone 14 series models this year, out of which the two new Pro models will see drastic changes in terms of design and core specifications. The vanilla models, on the other hand, will get minimal changes this year, and the Mini version is likely to be replaced by a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max. However, it is the iPhone 14 Pro Max that will be the most desirable iPhone to buy this year.

    The iPhone 14 Pro Max will essentially be a larger version of the iPhone 14 Pro. Hence, it will have all the latest and greatest features from Apple, along with the benefit of the largest display and the biggest battery capacity. And as some who has been a fan of the iPhone 13 Pro Max for over a year, the iPhone 14 Pro Max rumours paint lots of promises that keep the iPhone fan in me happy.

    iPhone 14 Pro Max: Why we are excited for it

    Obviously, it is the rumours that has got us excited, since Apple is yet to release anything on this front. The iPhone 14 series is expected to be announced at the Apple launch event on September 7.

    The notch is going!

    The iPhone 14 Pro Max will be the first iPhone since the iPhone X from 2017 to ditch the iconic notch. Apple is likely to settle for display cutouts for the camera and a Face ID sensor, which could be shaped like an exclamation mark. The design could liberate some space up top.

    Always On Display

    The iPhone 14 Pro Max could also get a LTPO 2 display, which should allow for a refresh rate ranging from 1Hz to 120Hz. This should allow for an Always On Display experience, a first for the iPhone.

    New A16 Bionic chip

    This year, a new chip on the iPhone will be a big deal, considering that Apple will reuse the A15 chip from the iPhone 13 Pro on the vanilla iPhone 14 models. The iPhone 14 Pro Max will get the new A16 chip, which will offer more performance and probably better efficiency.

    New colours

    Even though the Pro variants have subtle colours, Apple is going to bring back a new shade of purple for the iPhone 14 Pro Max. The Purple will be a big change from the Sierra Blue on the iPhone 13 Pro and the Green on the iPhone 11 Pro.

    Higher-res 48MP camera

    The 48MP main camera will be the biggest resolution upgrade from the previous 12MP camera sensor. Based on the Apple teaser, it seems the Pro Max could use this sensor for an astrophotography-like feature, or much better night vision photography. Even daylight photos could benefit from superior details.

    Possibly bigger battery, faster charging

    The iPhone 14 Pro Max may have a bigger battery and that could deliver superior endurance when compared to the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Rumours also suggest a faster 30W wired charging solution this year.
