iPhone 17 Pro Max: The Future of iPhone 17 Pro Series

iPhone 17 Pro Max

Leaked iPhone 17 Pro Max specs and rumours:

  • Design: Non-Pro variants may have a titanium build, a smaller notch or “Dynamic Island”, and a more sophisticated aluminium design.
  • A18 or A19 Bionic processor.
  • Better triple-lens rear camera with 48-megapixel sensor. A 24MP front-facing camera is also mentioned.
  • RAM: 12GB RAM.
  • No leaks on the battery size, although it should be similar or larger than the iPhone 16 Pro Max’s.

With Apple expected to drop the Plus version and make significant changes to Dynamic Island.

The current iPhone 16 lineup won’t be announced by Apple for a few months, but even before then, rumours about all the modifications the Cupertino, California-based tech giant is preparing for its flagship series of the upcoming year, the iPhone 17, are rife. According to the most recent rumours, the iPhone 17 series may have changes to the front camera, a smaller Dynamic Island, and other features.

Analyst Jeff Pu of Haitong International Securities claims in an investment note that Apple intends to replace the Plus model with the iPhone 17 series with a Slim version. Analyst Ross Young also stated as much in his study from earlier this year.

Design revisions for the iPhone 17:

The iPhone 17 series is anticipated to be offered in four variations, with a Slim model replacing the Plus model, in keeping with previous iPhone lines. These models’ stated sizes are listed below:

6.1-inch screen on the iPhone 17

6.6-inch display on the iPhone 17 Slim

6.3-inch display on the iPhone 17 Pro

6.9-inch display on the iPhone 17 Pro Max

Apple’s iPhone 17, iPhone 17 Slim, and iPhone 17 Pro versions, with “more complex,” aluminium designs, are likely. Meanwhile, the iPhone 17 Pro Max will be titanium.
Pu also spills the stunning news that the new “metalen” technology which will be utilized for the premium device’s proximity sensor will allow the iPhone 17 Pro Max to have a “narrowed Dynamic Island.” All subsequent iPhone 17 models, meanwhile, most likely have the same design as the original.

iPhone 17 series:

The iPhone 17 and 17 Slim will likely employ an A18 or A19 bionic chipset and 8GB of RAM, according to Pu. In the iPhone 17 Pro and 17 Pro Max, the A19 Pro processor and 12GB RAM are expected. According to Pu, the iPhone 17 series would likely sport 24MP front-facing cameras, an upgrade from the iPhone 15 series’ 12MP sensors.

The standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus have 6GB RAM, whereas Pro variants have 8GB. All iPhone 16 versions from the firm, though, are probably going to come with the same 8GB of RAM.

Rumours and leaks reveal further iPhone 17 details:

A change from the iPhone 16 series is possible. Apple may release an iPhone 17 Slim instead of a regular and Plus model. Both iPhone 17 Pro and iPhone 17 Pro Max are expected to remain.

  • Display: Display quality and refresh rate may improve, especially for Pro models.
  • Camera: All four iPhone 17 models may get a 24MP front-facing camera update.
  • Battery: There are rumors of longer battery life and faster charging.
  • iOS 18: The iPhone 17 may arrive pre-installed with iOS 18, which will provide new features and improve the iPhone experience.
  • Since this is rumor, consider these: Release Date: Leaks estimate September 2024, although this could change.

Leaks and speculation suggest these iPhone 17 features:


A18 or A19 Bionic chip: A17’s successor, improving processing power and efficiency.
12GB RAM (Pro versions): Up from 8GB in iPhone 16 Pro models for smoother multitasking and demanding apps.
Camera improvements: All models may get a 24MP front-facing camera for better selfies and video calls. Pro rear cameras may get higher resolution, larger sensors, or new functionality.
Titanium build: The iPhone 17 Pro Max may have a titanium build for durability and style. Advances in under-display technology could decrease the “Dynamic Island” notch.
iPhone 17 Slim: This rumoured model could replace the Plus, giving a larger screen in a slimmer, more manageable form factor.


The iPhone 17 may come with iOS 18, which has yet to be released. This could include new features:

  • Improved widget interactivity and customization.
  • Siri’s intelligence and talents improve.
  • Updates to Messages, FaceTime, and other essentials.
  • Prioritizing privacy and security.

Other options:

  • Increased battery life or charging speed: Rumor’s say battery technology or charging speeds may improve.
  • Pro versions’ under-display fingerprint sensor: Possible notch elimination, but fingerprint sensor integration under the panel may be far off.
  • Remember, these are rumor’s. At its September 2024 launch event, Apple will announce the iPhone 17’s official features.

These are rumours, therefore the iPhone 17 Pro Max‘s specs may vary.
