Let me be straight with ya: there are fifteen other devices on my desk that excite me more than Apple’s latest silver slab. That’s because I chose a business that satisfies my predilection for novelty – and folding phones, retro recorders, and laptops that unfold into mobile workstations are much better at stoking that fire than predictable, pragmatic progression.

But that same safe iteration is what’s made the iPhone the Must-Have Device for most folks in the US who aren’t like me – normal folks who see their phone as an un-sexy necessity, like a toaster oven. Sure, Android still dominates the smartphone space globally, but beneath those anodyne metrics of percentage points traded to and fro, Americans of means long ago reached a cruel consensus: “the default phone” is the one with the fruit on the back, and the telltale blue text bubbles that come along with it. As someone who prefers diversity in devices, I don’t like it (and I don’t carry an iPhone myself) … but at this point it’s stupid to try to refute it.

So three weeks after I picked up my review device, it’s time to wrap up my three-video arc on the iPhone 15 Pro Max, with a look at why it’s winning … and where it still has a ways to go.


This is the third in a series of videos featuring the iPhone 15 Pro Max, produced following three weeks with an iPhone 15 Pro Max review sample provided by Apple. The device received an OTA during the review process, to version iOS 17.0.3.
