Released back in November of 2020, the iPhone 12 Pro Max was part of the 'second-wave' of 12-series devices alongside the diminutive palm-friendly iPhone 12 Mini deals. Completing the line-up alongside the already-released iPhone 12 deals means there's now a 12-series handset for everyone, although we'd hesitate to call these budget devices by any stretch of the imagination.

At an introductory price of $1099, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is currently the most premium smartphone offering from Apple. Alongside an absolutely lavish 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display, it also features a huge array of excellent new camera features that are sure to make it the phone to beat when it comes to convenient high-quality photos and videos. It's also of course featuring Apple's latest A14 Bionic chip - its fastest mobile processor yet, and a gorgeous new squared-off aesthetic that features a stainless steel chassis backed with a new glass design.

Just below you'll find our top picks of iPhone 12 Pro Max deals to order alongside a more detailed deep dive into this brand new flagship. You'll also find a handy specs sheet, just in case you wanted to contrast and compare it against the 12 Pro or other leading devices.

OS: iOS 14 | Screen size: 6.7-inch OLED| Resolution: 1284 x 2778 | CPU: A14 Bionic| Memory: 6GB | Weight: 228g |Storage: 128 / 256 / 512GB | Battery: 3,687mAh | Rear camera: 12MP dual wide/ultrawide/telephoto| Front camera: 12MP 

So here it is, the biggest, meanest flagship device from Apple in 2020 - the iPhone 12 Pro Max. No surprises, Apple's pulled out all the stops with this eye-wateringly expensive phone but thankfully it's not just an iterative improvement on last year's iPhone 11 Pro Max. 

As with all new 12 series iPhones, the iPhone 12 Pro Max features the new A14 Bionic chip and a rather fetching squared-off aesthetic that's more in line with the Apple devices of old than the previous 11 series. It's also rocking the new 'Ceramic shield' tech that promises a more shatter-resistant screen that's (apparently) four times tougher than previous glass designs. That's a nice little addition when you consider you'll probably want to keep this insanely expensive phone in tip-top condition.

Perhaps the most marked upgrades in the 12 Pro Max is found within its lavish triple array of rear cameras - which easily make this the top choice for phone snappers right now. According to Apple, the 12 Pro Max has a sensor that's 47% larger than the previous 11 Pro Max, which equates to a whopping 87% increase in low-light performance. The 12 Pro Max's telephoto lens also features a 5x zoom, as opposed to the 4x on the standard iPhone 12 Pro.

Alongside aft-mentioned iPhone 12 Pro, the 12 Pro Max now also features a brand-new LiDAR scanner (for depth sensing, portraits and augmented reality apps), and also supports HDR video and Dolby Vision up to 60fp. Both of these new flagship devices are looking like fantastic options for avid videographers and photographers alike, if you can afford the hefty price tag that is.
