The iPhone 14 Pro sports the same 6.1-inch display as the standard iPhone, but has a more impressive 48MP main camera and is powered by Apple’s A16 Bionic processor. The Pro also includes Dynamic Island, which reclaims the split notch by adding a variety of adaptive features to the top edge of the screen.

Where to buy the iPhone 14 Pro Max

Similar to the smaller iPhone 14 Pro, the larger iPhone 14 Pro Max starts at 128GB of storage and can go up to 1TB. The costs, however, are not the same due to the difference in size. This model starts at $1,099, at Apple, Walmart, and Best Buy, all the way up to $1,599. The Pro Max is also available at Walmart in multiple installments starting at $29.14 per month for existing AT&T and Verizon customers.

$1099

The flagship entry in the iPhone 14 lineup, the 14 Pro Max, retains the camera and processor improvements of the Pro model, but features a larger 6.7-inch screen and, importantly, the dynamic island. The Pro Max is available with storage options starting at 128GB, all the way up to 1TB.
