Apple isn’t likely to unveil the iPhone 12 family anytime soon — at least until September — if we go by its historical records. Nevertheless, some computer-aided design (CAD) schematics of the iPhone 12 Pro Max have surfaced online to suggest what all the changes the Cupertino, California-based giant would bring over to the iPhone 11 Pro Max. One of the key highlights that has emerged from the schematics is the Smart Connector. The iPhone 12 Pro Max is also likely to be thinner than the existing flagship iPhone. You’ll also notice various similarities in the design with that of the latest iPad Pro.
Generally, accessory makers get the idea of what Apple has in the pipeline sometime ahead of the official launch. This leads to the CAD schematics leaks. So nothing new here. However, what’s new and important to note is that the fresh leak suggests the complete design of the iPhone 12 Pro Max.1
YouTube channel EverythingApplePro has sourced the information from tipster Max Weinbach, who’s obtained it from a casemaker and claims that the schematics are 70 percent complete, and posted a video suggesting the major changes over the iPhone 11 Pro Max. Instead of looking like an upgrade of last year’s model, the iPhone 12 Pro Max seems to have a design that looks quite similar to the iPad Pro 2020. This is something similar to what Bloomberg reported earlier this week.
