However, the newly launched iPhone 14 Pro Max boasts a few minor changes including the Dynamic Island notification area as compared to its predecessor. Notably, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is considerably different than the iPhone 13 Pro Max as far as internals are concerned.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max scored 972,936 on AnTuTu, courtesy of the latest Apple A16 Bionic chip it packs. Overall, the iPhone 14 Pro models have shown a major CPU and GPU performance boost compared to last year’s iPhone models. Now, the recently surfaced disassembly video further reveals the internals of the latest Pro Max variant.
Some of the components of the iPhone 14 Pro Max are quite easy to repair, according to a report by GSM Arena. Since the unit shown in the video is a US model, it doesn’t feature a SIM tray. The display is the first thing that comes off the iPhone 14 Pro Max US model.
We can see an L-shaped battery that has 16.93Wh mentioned on it. Also, the left side has a logic board marked “A16 Bionic.” Graphite pads and a metal plate carry out the process of transferring and dissipating heat, as per a 9to5Mac report. This is probably the new thermal system Apple teased at the Far Out event.
Furthermore, the front shooter supports OIS. Interestingly, Apple did not mention this at its recently concluded launch event. The teardown video from PBKreviews also reveals the satellite connectivity module, We also get a glimpse of Apple’s new technique of setting the proximity sensor under the display.
Also, the selfie camera’s TrueDepth camera module is quite small. This enabled Apple to implement Dynamic Island. Lastly, the 48MP wide-angle lens on the iPhone 14 Pro Max appears to have a large sensor in the teardown video.
