The iPhone 12 Pro Max was released on November 13th, 2020 starting at $1,099 USD, the same price as the iPhone 11 Pro Max before it, but the base configuration now grants 128 GB of storage: double the capacity of the previous base model. It also features an upsized 6.7” Super Retina XDR OLED display with an upgraded resolution versus the 6.5” display in the iPhone 11 Pro Max. All four iPhones in Apple’s 2020 lineup dropped their curved edges in favor of a flat stainless steel form-factor and add 5G connectivity and a new MagSafe charging system. For the first time, Apple opted not to include a power adapter or EarPods in the box for any of the iPhone 12 series—only a Lightning to USB-C cable. The iPhone 12 Pro Max is offered in updated versions of the classic Gold and Silver color options, as well as Graphite and Pacific Blue.
