The Class of iPhone 11 Pro Max
iPhones are famous for quite several reasons. One of the reasons is that Apple is considered classy. iPhones are the most expensive selling smartphones every year, but still, sales so much, whereas the most premium of the smartphones from other popular brands like Samsung and Huawei don’t get so much success even if they are more value for money and many times, they some extra features. The reason is that people can recognize an iPhone from anywhere, and the user is considered to be classy. In short, the iPhone is a class in itself for quite some people.
iPhone 11 Pro Max was launched in the later part (around September) of 2019. Let’s do a detailed analysis and find out how good this iPhone is.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max is one of the most premium smartphones in the market, and Apple has built it, keeping that in mind. The iPhone 11 Pro Max has a premium-looking glass body, and the chassis is made of metal. The device comes with a textured matt finish on the glass back, which makes the in-hand feel of the device really great. Furthermore, it also enhances the look of the device. Both the front and the rear glass panel of the device are protected with hardened glass, which Apple claims to be the hardest glass on any smartphone ever. Also, the glass panels are claimed to be scratch resistant.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max has a 6.5 inch Super Retina XDR OLED display, which is marvelous. The display is crisp and clear; colors are punchy, and viewing angles are also right. Super Retina technology enhances display quality further. The resolution of the screen is 2688 x 1242 Pixels. It also has the ‘True Tone’ technology, which is found on MacBooks. This technology helps in adjusting the warmth of the screen as per physical conditions. Putting it simply, this feature will make your webpages and documents look almost like something printed on a paper, physically. Isn’t it exciting?
With an increase in photography enthusiasts, content makers, and videographers, the camera is one of the essential aspects of every smartphone these days. And due to this reason, brands have started giving fierce competition to each other in-camera sector. So, let’s talk about the camera of the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max is the first iPhone to flaunt a triple camera setup. All three cameras are 12 MP sensors; one of them is a Wide camera, another is Ultra Wide, and the third one being a Telephoto lens. The Ultra Wide sensor, which has a 120-degree field of view, has a 13mm focal length with an aperture of f/2.4. The Wide camera has OIS, i.e., Optical Image Stabilisation. A focal length of 26mm and sports and an aperture of f/1.8. The Telephoto Camera has a 52mm focal length along with a larger f/2.0 aperture. The Telephoto Camera also supports 2x optical zoom.

Apart from all the hardware features, there are many software features too. There are many modes and scenes to choose from. There is night mode available on the device, and it works very nicely. The low light photos come out quite nicely. The iPhone 11 Pro Max has a 12 MP front camera with TrueDepth technology. There are many software features for the front camera too. They are different types of AR (Augmented Reality) features, Portrait mode, HDR mode, and much more. The AR feature is exciting and refreshing, as it can show you the exact shape and size of an object, even if it doesn’t exist physically.
Both the front and the rear camera support slow-motion videography and also photography. The QuickTake feature of the iPhone lets you take a motion photograph, which is quite cool and unique in itself. The cameras can record stable videos, and quality up to 4K is supported. The front camera is also responsible for the Face Unlock, which is quite significant as the device is not having any fingerprint scanner (be it on-screen or physical). The Face Unlock is not the fastest but not slow at all and can be counted on. It doesn’t unlock the phone when the users’ eyes are closed. Another interesting thing is the Face Unlock works even in pitch darkness.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max comes with Apple’s latest processor for iPhones, i.e., the A13 Bionic. As per the claims of Apple, the chipset which has a 64-bit architecture is years ahead of any other chipset in this world. The processor is enabled with AI and Machine Learning so that the users’ efforts can be minimalized.
This processor can run everything quite easily; even massive games should run buttery smooth. Heating issues aren’t expected from such a device, but the back panel may tend to get a little bit warm on heavy gaming sort of usage. Apple claims that it has provided the fastest CPU and GPU ever for a smartphone. Also, both use up to 40 percent less power, which means they are considered efficient and hence can enhance battery life to a great extent.
The device has a dedicated Neural Engine, which helps in Advanced Machine Learning, to make the device faster and more efficient. It is responsible for driving the triple camera setup, Face ID, AR features, and much more. The device comes with 4 GB of RAM and has three variants based on internal storage –64 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max is fuelled by a Lithium-Ion 3969 mAh Battery, which is quite sufficient for almost all users. Because the hardware (CPU and GPU) are now much more efficient, the battery life has to be quite significant. Also, iOS is very well optimized and hence can help in making battery life better. Apart from fast charging, the iPhone 11 Pro Max also supports wireless charging. An 18W fast charger is provided in the box.
iPhones have always led the way in the speaker technology of smartphones. The iPhone 11 Pro Max takes the legacy forward. It some with stereo speaker setup, and the sound output is pure bliss. The bass is plentiful; the sound is well amplified and gives a perfect surround sound feeling. Also, the volume is adequately high. A lighting-port connectable in-ear type earphone is provided in the box of a retail unit.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max is the first iPhone to feature a dual-sim feature. But there is a twist here. There is only one sim slot (and no slot for expandable memory, which apple never provides). The second sim is an e-sim, i.e., there is not a physical sim card. The second sim will be virtually present in the phone and can be activated very quickly. All other operational features and procedures will remain the same. This is another new landmark Apple has set this time.
The device supports Bluetooth 5.0; other connectivity features include A-GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, and QZSS for global positioning. It has NFC support as well. But apart from all these, even after popular demands, Apple hasn’t brought the 3.5 mm headphone jack back. Quite many customers are missing it since iPhone 6. But perhaps it is a marketing strategy for Apple because the lightning to 3.5 mm adapter is the most popular iPhone accessory ever. Also, the Apple AirPods show us how serious Apple is about its wireless technologies.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max, being a premium smartphone, is expected to have all the necessary sensors available. And fortunately, Apple has made the device accordingly. It has all sensors; be it Face ID, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Proximity sensor, compass or barometer, this device ticks all the boxes.
