iFixit literally opened iPhone 12 Pro Max and revealed some unique differences in the design of the internals. These include the full extent of the larger camera system.

According to Macrumors’ latest report, the bigger camera system allows the device to have enhanced low-light performance. When iFixit first opened the smartphone, the internal feature that really stands out is the L-shaped battery, which was first integrated into iPhone 11 Pro Max.

However, compared to the previous flagship, iPhone 12 Pro Max’s battery has a more rectangular-shape because it was rumored that Apple used it to offset increasing costs owing to 5G tech.

iPhone 12 Pro Max’s L-shaped battery

This device’s battery is currently the largest one in the iPhone 12 series. It provides 14.13Wh, which is higher than the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro since they only offer 10.78Wh power.

However, iPhone 11 Pro Max still has the upper hand when it comes to the battery, thanks to its 15.04Wh. Aside from the L-shaped battery, iFixit was also impressed with the camera package since it is huge compared to other iPhone 12.

What makes its camera system bigger is Apple’s sensor choice. The company provided an x-ray of the camera package, revealing that the device’s standard wide camera (bottom left in the three) has a larger 12-megapixel sensor compared to other iPhone 12s, around 47%.

Apple announced iPhone 12 users will experience new issues

Forbes reported that Apple announced that iPhone 12 users will face upcoming serious problems. The tech giant manufacturer confirmed that iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be offered with a serious hardware issue.

The company previously said that new smartphones are suffering from significant display issues. These include green and gray glowing, flickering, and other lighting problems.

Some users are already posting their devices’ issues online. However, although this is a major case, Apple decided to instruct the Authorized Service Providers to not serve the affected users at the moment.

The report explained that the reason behind the order was Apple will try first to fix some of the problems with the iOS updates.
