Are you saving up to get this year’s flagship iPhone? Feast your eyes on what looks to be the first high-quality glimpse at the iPhone 14 Pro Max is here, complete with the iconic Apple logo at the back.
YouTuber Unbox Therapy has obtained a supposed one-to-one dummy of this year’s largest iPhone from Japan. This replica is based on computer-aided design (CAD) models for accessory makers, which allow them to manufacture phone cases in time for product launches.
As demonstrated in a new video, the iPhone 14 Pro Max—or the mockup, at least—is slightly thicker and heavier than the iPhone 13 Pro Max, although the bezels have been downsized by a touch. It’s believed that the premium handset will feature slightly larger power and volume buttons, too.
These suggest that differences in appearance between the iPhone 14 Pro Max and its predecessor will be marginal, at best. That doesn’t mean users should forgo the 2022 lineup—the iPhone 14 Pro Max will potentially stand out with its lack of the notch. Unbox Therapy’s video corroborates reports about the dreaded notch being replaced with a ‘pill and hole punch’ design, and that appears to be happening with the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
But if you’re hoping to switch to the universal USB-C for good, this might not be the year to upgrade your iPhone. It’s said that the Lightning port will only disappear when the iPhone 15 lineup comes around, and the new video backs this up.
