The smallest fix to iPhone 15 Pro Max has had the biggest impact for Apple’s giant phone — and now I love it

For the last three generations of iPhone, Apple has made the Pro models heavier and more unwieldy in exchange for beauty. Unfortunately, in a smartphone, the way it feels in your hand is, for some reason, totally undervalued in the grand scheme of things. You’ll rarely see a tech reviewer emphasize the feel and weight of a device as a reason to upgrade, but I firmly believe that how your technology feels to use is as important as what it allows you to achieve. 

When thinking about a new smartphone, the weight and feel are as important to me as the battery life, the display, and the camera — maybe even more so. That’s why the iPhone 15 Pro Max is the most significant upgrade to the iPhone in a very long time, in my eyes. Not because of its fancy camera array or its A17 Pro 3nm chipset, but because it’s the first Pro iPhone since the Pro models arrived in 2020 to consider the user’s in-hand comfort.

I’ve owned the iPhone 15 Pro Max for three weeks, and it’s my first ever Pro Max. The last big iPhone I purchased was the XS Max, and I’ve owned the smaller 6.1-inch Pro models ever since. I opted for the smaller model for so long because the stainless steel Pro iPhones have, in my hands at least, been so uncomfortable to use that the thought of getting the huge 6.7-inch model was out of the question.
