The principle predominant distinction is that the batteries in the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are much larger than the batteries in the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.
On the iPhone 11 Pro Max, the tool is .4 mm thicker and the display is .25 mm thinner. As John Gruberexpected, losing 3D Touch from the iPhone lineup makes the display a piece of slimmer. 3D Touch required a further layer under the show to register stress on the display.
Which can presumably well merely feel enjoy a minute distinction, but it frees up some deliver for the battery. The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone XS non-public the identical single-cell L-formed make. Nevertheless the Max version has been up to this point to make exhaust of the got here single-cell make as an different of two cells.
The result is that the iPhone 11 Pro Max now has a 3,969 mAh battery when put next to a 3,179 mAh battery in the iPhone XS Max. It represents an with regards to 25% 12 months-over-12 months development for the Max battery.

Through issues that we don’t know but, iFixit couldn’t determine how much RAM there is — Steve Troughton-Smithbelievesthere would possibly presumably well very effectively be 2GB of RAM dedicated to the digicam that you simply wouldn’t contemplate about on benchmarks.
In an identical vogue, there are now two battery connectors as an different of one. It’s tense to assert for sure that the 2d connector has been added for bilateral wireless charging — it would possibly perhaps presumably well perhaps merely be there for tons of diverse causes. Rumor has it that Apple wished to add reverse wireless charging but canned the feature on the remaining minute.
Overall, iFixit gives a repairability ranking of 6 out 10. The iPhone XS models additionally got a 6 out of 10 ranking.
