iPhone 14 Pro Max: Best New Features - Size, Colours and Pricing

Apple launched the iPhone 14 Pro Max in September last year (2022), and it's one of the best phones on the market. If you want to buy an iPhone 14 Pro Max, read this article first.

Here we'll delve into the best new features of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, including its size, colours, and pricing, so you can decide if it's worth the cost.

iPhone 14 Pro Max Features and Specifications

iPhone 14 Pro Max Size

The iPhone 14 Pro Max is larger than its predecessor, the iPhone 13 Pro Max. It has a 6.7-inch OLED display, the same size as the previous model. However, Apple reduced the phone's overall size by 20% due to a reduction in the notch (the black cutout on the top of the screen where the camera and sensors are). Despite the larger display, the phone is easier to hold and use with one hand. The phone's weight has also been reduced by 25 grams, making it even more comfortable to hold.

iPhone 14 Pro Max Colours

iPhone 14 Pro Max range of colours: deep purple, space black, gold, silver

The iPhone 14 Pro Max is available in four colours: gold, silver, graphite, and sierra blue. The sierra blue colour is unique to the iPhone 14 Pro Max. It's a beautiful blue colour that is a departure from the usual black and silver colours available on most smartphones. Apple has updated the gold colour to be more subdued, while the graphite colour has a premium matte finish.

iPhone 14 Pro Max Price

The iPhone 14 Pro Max is not cheap, but it is competitively priced compared to other high-end smartphones. The base model costs £1,199, while the maxed-out version with 1TB storage costs £1,749. The cost aligns with the pricing of other high-end smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and the Google Pixel 7 Pro. You can however pick up a refurbished iPhone 14 Pro Max on Doji for a far better price, and with 12-month warranties!

Best New Features iPhone 14 Pro Max 

Always on display on an iPhone 14 Pro Max in the Apple Store

Always-On Display

One of the most significant new features of the iPhone 14 Pro Max is the always-on display. It's the first iPhone to offer this feature, which has been available on many Android phones for years. The always-on display shows the time, date, and notifications, even when the screen is off. It's customizable, and you can choose which apps and notifications to display on the screen.

48MP Main Camera

The iPhone 14 Pro Max has a new 48MP main camera that allows you to take high-quality photos with incredible detail. It is not set as the default camera mode, but you can enable it in the camera settings. When taking photos in this mode, the images can be as large as 100MB, which allows for impressive crops and detail. The phone has several camera features to help you take better photos and videos, including night mode, deep fusion, and smart HDR 4.

Dynamic Island

The iPhone 14 Pro Max Dynamic Island is one of the best features of the iPhone 14 Pro Max. It replaces the notch at the top of the display with a new pill-shaped area comprising two smaller cutouts digitally merged. Dynamic Island shows system-wide alerts, notifications, and system-related operations at the top of the screen. You can see the battery life, signal strength, and other information without pulling down the notification shade.

iPhone 14 Pro Max with Emergency SOS feature selected on screen

Emergency SOS via Satellite

The iPhone 14 Pro Max has a safety feature that allows you to send an emergency SOS message even if you are in an area with no cellular coverage. This feature uses satellite communication to send the SOS message to emergency services. This safety feature that can be a lifesaver in emergencies.

Change Notification Style

By default, iOS 16 shows a number, or "count," of notifications at the bottom of your Lock Screen to let you know how many notifications you have waiting. But you can change this to be a list of actual notifications or a stack of notification windows. Open Settings > Notifications and choose one of the other two options at the top of the screen under 'Display As.'

Lock a Private Note Behind Face ID

One of iPhone 14 Pro Max's hidden features is locking a specific note behind a Face ID authentication in Notes. You're no longer limited to locking it behind your phone's passcode. To enable this feature, click Settings > Notes and find the 'Password' option. Tap on it, select the 'Use Device Passcode' option, and toggle 'Use Face ID.' To lock a specific note, long-press on the note you want to lock within the app, and then hit 'lock note' on the pop-up menu that appears. Next time you try to open it, it'll use Face ID to check if it's you trying to access it.

Edit or Unsend iMessages

Another iPhone 14 Pro Max hidden feature is you can unsend or edit iMessages. Open Messages, type your message as normal and - once you've sent it - long press it. You'll see both 'Edit' and 'Undo send' as options in the drop-down menu. Choose whichever you want to use at the time. But be warned, if the person you're sending it to doesn't have iOS 16, it won't appear as unsent for them; they'll still see the message.

Delete Duplicate Photos

Apple's latest Photos app lets you quickly and easily delete duplicate photos to help you save iPhone and iCloud storage. Open Photos and tap on 'Albums.' Scroll down until you see 'Duplicates' in the list near the bottom of the page. Now you can hit 'merge' under each match.

Customers Also Ask:

What is the special feature of the iPhone 14 Pro Max?

The iPhone 14 Pro Max features Dynamic Island, a new area at the top of the display that replaces the notch and supports system-wide alerts and notifications. The model also includes ProMotion Display, which allows the screen to refresh at up to 120Hz for smoother scrolling. The always-on display shows the time, wallpaper, widgets, new cameras with improved performance for low-light situations, and longer battery life.

What colours are available for the iPhone 14 Pro Max?

The iPhone 14 Pro Max will be available in four different colours: silver, gold, space black, and deep purple. Apple has slightly modified gold with a more beige back glass than last year's iPhone 13 Pro models. 

Which colour is most attractive in iPhone 14 Pro Max?

According to iPhone 14 Pro Max reviews, the deep purple colour is considered the most attractive as it's a new colour introduced only for this model. It could be mistaken for black in low light, but it shines beautifully in the right lighting. Go for the more conservative silver, gold, and space black colour options if you plan to keep your device longer.

Which iPhone 14 Pro Max colour is the most popular?

The deep purple colour option was the most popular among iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max owners, with the gold colour coming in second. The popularity of the deep purple colour was somewhat surprising since customers usually prefer conservative colour choices to use their devices for a longer time. Still, it could be due to Apple's aggressive promotion of the new purple models.

How to make the best out of iPhone 14 Pro Max?

To maximize your iPhone 14 Pro Max, you can start by auto-scheduling Low Power Mode to help save battery, and customizing your lock screen can make it more personalized. Additionally, setting up iCloud Shared Photo Library, customizing your Safari start page, changing your Safari design, and rearranging your home screen pages can enhance your experience.
