The top-of-the-range iPhone for 2019 teams a great triple-lens camera with a huge screen, a premium build and lots more. It's Apple's best phone yet.
iPhone 11 Pro Max at a glance
With a 6.5-inch screen, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is the largest Apple smartphone so far. And with amazing colour reproduction and crisp image quality, it's also the best for watching video.
Like the iPhone 11 Pro, the Pro Max features a triple-lens camera that combines a 12-megapixel wide lens and a 12-megapixel ultra wide-angle lens with a 12-megapixel telephoto lens.
Around the front, you'll find the same 12-megapixel TrueDepth camera, which for the first time allows you to take landscape-mode group selfies
All four lenses come together for what ranks as a truly outstanding camera system. One that's every bit as adept at capturing incredible panoramas, as it is for close-ups and portraits.
Shooting at night? The iPhone 11's got a very useful Night Mode that effectively turns night into day and means you won't have to use a flash.
And because the iPhone 11 Pro Max records crystal-clear, richly detailed Ultra HD 4K footage, your mini movies look excellent too.
To power the iPhone 11 Pro Max's large screen, you need a large battery. And so it is that the iPhone 11 is fitted with a 3,500mAh battery that's optimised to last five hours longer than the iPhone XS Max.
If you do run low on charge, there's a fast-charge mode that will replenish your battery by 50% in half an hour. And in a major break for Apple, the 18W fast-charger comes in the box.
Finally, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is fashioned from a robust mix of stainless steel and glass and is water-resistant in up to 4 metres for half an hour.
Other key specifications of the iPhone 11 Pro Max include:
- Green, silver, grey and gold colour options
- 64GB, 256GB and 512GB storage options

Cheap iPhone 11 Pro Max deals
The iPhone 11 Pro doesn't come cheap. Even so, it’s definitely possible to cut your outgoings if you’re clever. Here’s how:
- Choose a low storage model. Don’t need lots of storage? Plump for 64GB instead of 128GB.
- Go for a low cost network. giffgaff and Tesco Mobile offer keenly priced iPhone 11 contracts, with fewer customer benefits than bigger networks.
- Get it SIM-free. If you’ve got cash to hand, it works out cheaper to buy the iPhone 11 Pro Max upfront and get a SIM-free deal.

Tracking down an iPhone 11 Pro Max deal with nothing to pay upfront is possible.
But be mindful that if you go this route, you’ll have to pay higher monthly premiums to pay off your contract.
