Recently, a group of iPhone 15 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max specs comparisons have been exposed. According to the given dimensions, the size of the iPhone 15 Pro Max is smaller in height and width compared to the iPhone 14 Pro Max. However, the thickness of the iPhone 15 Pro Max is higher. It is 5% thicker and it retains the “smart island” design. Recent CAD renders suggests that the iPhone 15 Pro Max will have a smaller camera bump than previously expected. It will stand 0.59mm lower than the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The previous renders of the iPhone 15 Pro reveal that the body uses a metal frame. The edge of the display is narrower, the back panel is made of glass, and the glass is slightly curved at the edge to form a more seamless transition with the frame. It is a bit like the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro as well as the new M2 MacBook Air.
The screen does not seem to have changed much, and the Smart Island still exists. But it is rumoured that the screen brightness of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra (or Pro Max) reaches 2500 nits. The typical maximum brightness of the two models of the iPhone 14 Pro series is 1000 nits. The peak brightness of HDR content rises to 1600 nits, and the peak brightness of outdoor use is 2000 nits.
iPhone 15 series to use a USB Type-C port
In addition, the iPhone 15 series port has also switched from Lightning to USB Type-C. But Apple will still impose MFi verification on USB Type-C. The camera on the back of the fuselage is also thicker than the previous series. Since the iPhone has not improved significantly in terms of imaging in recent years, the gap with the Android camp is getting wider.

The iPhone still lacks a periscope telephoto lens, and it cannot compete with Android phones in telephoto scenes. Therefore, it is guessed that this thickness has something to do with the newly added periscope telephoto lens on the Internet. But the overall lens module design has no other changes. Three lenses and a LiDAR scanner are all arranged in a square module. Overall, the iPhone 15 Pro Max is a little smaller and narrower than the iPhone 14 Pro Max. But the body is thicker and the lens module is more convex.
iPhone 15 Pro Max is on the “hot search” list
According to reports on Weibo, the “iPhone 15 Pro Max or half a catty” was on the hot search list. Under this topic, a fan posted on Weibo that his “little finger bears a weight that it shouldn’t bear at this age”. He was obviously referring to the weight of this device. This fan uses an iPhone 13 Pro, and because he held the phone with his little finger for a long time, he left an obvious “indentation” on his little finger. The iPhone 13 Pro weighs 203 g, which is not the heaviest model among Apple mobile phones. The iPhone 13 Pro Max weighs 238g, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max weighs 240g.
From the perspective of Apple’s previous models, the weight of the iPhone is showing an increasing trend. The weight of the Pro Max in the second half of this year should be around 250g. Fans are already frowning at this weight increase calling it “half a catty of fruit”.
Not only that, according to data exposed on the Internet, the thickness of the iPhone 15 Pro Max has increased by 5%, reaching 8.25mm. In addition, the iPhone 15 Pro Max still continues the smart island design of the previous generation. However, Apple will still impose MFi verification which means that the Android data cable cannot be used directly for the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
