Apple’s latest crop of iPhones has arrived, led by the promising, feature-rich iPhone 11 pro. As always, the arrival of this new iPhone (along with the simultaneously launched iPhone 11 and iPhone Max) has set the world abuzz. iPhone users waiting to upgrade suddenly have some new, cutting edge options.

But what of iPhone XS Max? How does one of the recent times’ hottest smartphones compare against Apple’s new flagship? Let’s take a look at the features and specifications that separate iPhone XS Max and iPhone 11 pro.
Major differences between iPhone XS Max and iPhone 11 Pro

There was almost a whole year between the launch of iPhone XS Max and iPhone 11 pro so there’s bound to be plenty of advancements in the new iPhone. But while a lot has changed, some things are pretty much the same.

Some Major Factors That Will Make Up Your Mind On Which One To Get - iPhone Xs Max & iPhone 11Pro?

1. Design and display

The most obvious, and much talked about the difference between the design of the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone XS Max is the top left corner with a prominent square kit for iPhone 11 Pro’s three camera lenses. The frosted matte finish at the rear end of the iPhone 11 Pro looks and feels great and is the only other noticeable design change that sets it apart from iPhone XS Max.

iPhone 11 Pro features a 5.8-inch screen with a Super Retina XDR display compared to the 6.5-inch Super Retina OLED HDR display of iPhone XS Max. iPhone 11Pro screen does appear prettier than iPhone XS Max, but there’s really not much of a difference in the resolution.

2. Camera Feature Comparison Between iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone XS.


iPhone 11 Pro introduces Apple’s ambitious triple camera system to replace the dual camera set up featured in the rest of iPhone models. The additional ‘ultra-wide-angle’ lens is 12 megapixels just like the other 2 rear-facing camera lenses – the standard wide lens and the telephoto lens.

The trio of rear-facing cameras gives iPhone 11 Pro huge advantages when it comes to zoom and video. iPhone 11 Pro has 2x optical zoom in and zooms out, with up to 10x digital zoom. You can also capture videos using 6x digital and optical zoom using iPhone 11 Pro. The telephoto lens operates in sync with the standard wide lens, so you also have dual optical image stabilization.

The front-facing/selfie camera lens in iPhone 11 Pro is also 12 megapixels and promises crispier, more vivid selfies than other iPhones.

iPhone XS Max, on the other hand, has a dual-camera system on the rear with two 12 megapixel lenses, along with a 7-megapixel front-facing/selfie camera.

Remember, iPhone XS Max offered perhaps the best camera performance from an iPhone since its launch. So, while the newcomer with its triple camera setup is definitely superior and has a lot of intriguing camera and video options in-store, iPhone XS Max remains a top-tier camera phone still.

3. Memory

When it comes to phone memory, base iPhone 11 Pro and base iPhone XS Max are both equipped with 64 GB storage and 4 GB RAM. No difference there.

The big difference lies in the chipset – iPhone 11 Pro is powered by A13 Bionic chipset which can run games at 60 frames per second (native resolution). A13 Bionic chipset has about 23 percent more transistors than the A12 Bionic chipset which powers iPhone XS Max. A13 CPUs are supposed to be 20 percent quicker than A12, capable of up to a trillion operations per second while using 40 percent less power.

With this speed, iPhone 11 Pro certainly does live up to the mantle of ‘the world’s fastest smartphone’. Gamers are going to go crazy over this one!

4. Battery

As per Apple’s sources, the battery life of iPhone 11 Pro runs 4 hours longer than previous year’s phones, including iPhone XS Max. The fast charging feature in 11 Pro promises 50 percent charging in 30 minutes which is the exact same as in XS Max.

Other specifications

iPhone 11 Pro offers quicker Face ID unlocking than all previous models of iPhone, iPhone XS Max included. There’s a brand new ‘night mode’ feature and users can capture 4K videos through both front-facing and rear cameras. In addition, the front-facing camera can also capture slow-motion videos.

iPhone 11 Pro promises 18 hours of video playback along with up to 11 hours of video streaming. iPhone XS Max, on the other hand, offers video playback of up to 15 hours, so there are 3 hours of difference that would endear iPhone 11 pro to everyone that loves to watch movies or stream Netflix on their phone.
