Usage And Software of iPhone 12 Pro Max. Just out of the box, the 12 Pro Max uses the iOS 14.1 operating system; which then needs to be updated to 14.2 at an immediate rate. For those who previously only used iOS 13 devices, the changes made to the interface were quite drastic.
iOS 14.2 comes with widget support for the first time to make it easy to see quick information; such as calendar agendas and weather. Apple also finally provided a notification tray -like feature by blinding app icons locally. The old display system with all the icons on the front page can still be used if you are more comfortable with the classic design.
Improvements to privacy are given priority this time around. More comprehensive control over the application is given as well as the option to sign in using an Apple account. The LED lights up on the front to let you know the camera is active. For people who care about privacy, iOS 14.2 will make it easier for you to sleep more soundly at night because of the various options provided.
As I said a few paragraphs above, the 12 Pro Max is still retro in terms of screen technology which is still just 60Hz. But in real -world use 60Hz on iOS 14.2 is still smooth as it is matched with the powerful Apple 14 Bionic processor as well as 120Hz touch detection. Did I miss the 120Hz screen on the Note20 Ultra while using the 12 Pro Max? The sincere answer is only momentary because the fact is that in the majority of situations 60Hz is more than adequate.

The Apple 14 Bionic is the world’s first 5nm processor; and maintains an 8 -core cluster configuration with two high -power cores and four efficiency cores. Apple still doesn’t feel the need to use their eight -core chip on the iPhone; because so far it’s only used on the iPad Pro (Apple A12Z) and computers (Apple M1)
The absence of two additional cores indirectly recorded the performance of the A14 Bionic because in two benchmark tests Antutu 3D and Geekbench 5; it easily overtook the Snapdragon 865+, Exynos 990 and Apple A13 Bionic. A total of 667,807 marks were recorded in the Antutu 3D test and 1598/3971 in the Geekbench 5 test.
