Teardown: This is how the iPhone 12 Pro Max looks on the inside

The largest iPhone ever has not only a hefty housing but also a gigantic camera module. It can therefore receive a lot of light and you will notice that in the Night mode photos of the device.

This is evident from the teardown of the iPhone 12 Pro Max that has been put online by iFixit. During a so-called teardown, a smartphone is completely disassembled so that we know what parts it contains.

The gigantic camera module is particularly striking. The 12 Pro Max, for example, has by far the largest camera sensors ever and can therefore receive a lot of light. According to Apple, this means the largest iPhone ever delivers up to 80 per cent better photos in low light, simply because the sensors have more room to collect light.iFixit iPhone 12 Pro Max teardown

In addition, iFixit made an X-ray scan of the camera module. This shows, among other things, that Apple has applied four magnets around the wide-angle lens. These magnets allow the lens to move slightly, compensating for possible hand vibrations during photography.

Furthermore, the battery shape of the iPhone 12 Pro Max falls. With a little imagination, it looks a bit like the letter L. The ‘normal’ 12 Pro has a more rectangular battery. All in all, iFixit gives the iPhone 12 Pro Max a ‘repairability rating’ of 6, just as high as the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 mini.

About the iPhone 12 Pro Max

The iPhone 12 Pro Max is the biggest and best iPhone ever. However, it is only really interesting for a small audience thanks to its high suggested retail price. In our review of the iPhone 12 Pro Max, we explain why this is the case. A small tip of the veil: in terms of camera, the device excels, but the screen could have been better. This year’s Pro iPhones also suffer from the entry-level model: it has become much better.
