Final Verdict

The all-new iPhone 15 Pro Max arrives with commendable enhancements and upgrades. Its robust Titanium build, the addition of Type-C connectivity, camera improvements, the convenience of the Action Button, enhanced speed, and a fresh operating system stand out as its key highlights.

However, the familiar 3-camera module design at the rear may not excite everyone. On a positive note, the iPhone 15 Pro Max retains its pricing from the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
