  • Camera

iPhone 12 Pro Max camera has the same selfie and ultra-wide-angle cameras as the 12 and 12 Pro, and they work the same way, but the main camera and remote camera on the back are different. The remote camera has an extended 2.5x optical zoom by 2 times. Any increase in range is accepted but pales in comparison to competing for 4x / 5x optics. The main camera has the same 12-megapixel resolution, but the physical sensor is 47% larger than its predecessor and collects 87% more light.

Generally, compared with other iPhone 12 models, the 12 Pro Max has the best camera of all iPhones and has improved performance in low light conditions. This also puts Apple on a par with its main competitors, although the 2.5x optical zoom is still a bit behind in the business.
