iPhone 11 Pro Max vs iPhone XS Max

Which one is best for you?

iPhone 11 Pro Max is Apple’s 2019 plus-sized offering, and the direct successor to 2018’s hugely successful iPhone XS Max. They are both fantastic phablets, so which should you choose?

iPhone XS Max comes loaded with a powerful 3174 mAh battery, and its slick performance is driven by Apple’s speedy A12 Bionic chipset. 2019’s A13 Bionic processor offers even faster CPU and GPU, and you can expect iPhone's bigger 3500 mAh cell to last an extra four hours or so.

Both boast excellent 6.5-inch OLED screens so you can enjoy your favourite content to the max, but iPhone 11 Pro’s camera is much improved on its predecessor. To the wide angle and telephoto lenses on iPhone XS Max have been added a 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera for more expansive landscape shots.

Both are outstanding phones, but Apple have made some big strides in 2019, particularly in camera tech and battery enhancements. iPhone 11 Pro is a significant upgrade on iPhone XS Max
