Introduction

Can iPhone 11 Pro possibly be turned into iPhone 11 Pro Max? It is actually theoretically possible. With pins of the two phones’ display connector and touch connector functioning almost the same, we can turn an iPhone 11 Pro into an iPhone 11 Pro Max by changing board ID resistors.

Video Overview

  1. iPhone 11 Pro VS iPhone 11 Pro Max
    • iPhone 11 Pro VS iPhone 11 Pro Max

    • iPhone 11 Pro comes with a 5.80-inch touchscreen display.

    • iPhone 11 Pro Max comes with a 6.50-inch touchscreen display.

  2. What will happen when we connect the iPhone 11 Pro Max screen with the housing of iPhone 11 Pro directly?

  4. Compare the motherboard of iPhone 11 Pro and that of iPhone 11 Pro Max. The component array of the two is almost the same. There is one more board ID resistor next to CPU on iPhone 11 Pro.

    • All we need to do is remove the extra board ID resistor.

  5. We can see on the interface of 3uTools that the phone has entered DFU mode. And the phone has been turned into iPhone 11 Pro Max. We can write firmware of iPhone 11 Pro Max to the phone.
