Upgrading the iPhone XS to the iPhone 12 Pro Max is a significant improvement in almost every area, including the design, screen, camera, and battery life. The iPhone 12 Pro Max features a massive 6.7-inch OLED display, 5G, an additional ultra wide camera, LiDAR scanner, Night Mode (including portraits), A14, 6GB of RAM, dramatically longer battery life, stronger glass body, improved water resistance, MagSafe charging, and more. The standout feature is the primary camera that has a larger image sensor with in-body stabilization that outperforms any other 2020 iPhone or those that came before it.
