Moreover, representatives from Apple are also one of the most powerful phones in the smartphone world up to now. However, what will the performance of iPhone 12 Pro Max after updating to iOS 14.5?

  • Rate the performance of iPhone 12 Pro Max after going to iOS 14.5

The score is always one of the factors that best reflects the performance of a smartphone, so I conducted a performance score of the iPhone 12 Pro Max (before and after going to iOS 14.5) with familiar software: AnTuTu Benchmark, 3DMark Sling Shot Extreme and 3DMark Wild Life Stress Test. The results I obtained are as follows:

Especially when scoring with the software AnTuTu, the score on the iPhone 12 Pro Max after the update increased by nearly 30,000 points compared to before the update (601,617 points compared to 530,383 points).

Even though the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s score is really high, the actual experience is still the most important. Therefore, I have tried to play 3 popular games today: Lien Quan Mobile, PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty to see if the iPhone 12 Pro Max after going to iOS 14.5 will play smoothly or not. The data related to each game, I will leave it here for you to follow.

  • Arena of valor

The first is in the game Lien Quan Mobile, iPhone 12 Pro Max will definitely fight deliciously with its extremely high performance, even in iOS 14.1 or iOS 14.5. FPS remained stable at 60 during my experience and the general controls, skill swipes, and fighting were very smooth.

Well, if you see the FPS chart (pink line) playing Lien Quan Mobile of iPhone 12 Pro Max (running iOS 14.5) has dropped a few paragraphs, don’t mind, because I played two games in a row so I exported. show a transition effect that causes the camera to lag FPS. In terms of graphics settings, I have nothing to comment on, whether in iOS 14.1 or iOS 14.5, the iPhone 12 Pro Max can completely adjust the graphics level in the game to the highest level.

Going to the game with slightly heavier graphics, PUBG Mobile, does not make it difficult for my iPhone 12 Pro Max. Even Apple’s most high-end phone can adjust the graphics to UltraHD and the frame rate is Extremely high (the highest level of graphics currently in PUBG Mobile game).

Therefore, I do not feel surprised when the iPhone 12 Pro Max processes PUBG Mobile extremely smoothly, the details in the game must be called excellent. The FPS chart above also shows that the performance of the iPhone 12 Pro Max before and after the iOS 14.5 update is not much different. It’s a bit of a pity that I didn’t reach the top 1 in the league match.

  • Call of Duty Mobile

Finally is the heaviest game in the list of 3 games today, Call of Duty Mobile. I said that, but this game is old and thin with iPhone 12 Pro Max. Although the FPS was a bit low when I was in the lobby (due to the game’s features, helping users to save time when entering the game), when I was in the match, the FPS immediately increased to 60 (in iOS 14.1 as well. and iOS 14.5)

Summing up for the performance, I commented that the iPhone 12 Pro Max has improved performance, but based on the main scores, but the actual experience before and after the iOS 14.5 update is not too different. Well, the iPhone 12 Pro Max after the latest iOS release, the device’s temperature is better controlled than the old iOS version. On earlier iOS 14.1, iPhone 12 Pro Max experienced overheating after about 30 minutes of gaming.

The battery of the iPhone 12 Pro Max is buffalo after going to iOS 14.5

As the title above, iPhone 12 Pro Max has had a longer battery life after updating iOS 14.5, but specifically how long? I used the familiar battery test (according to TGDD standards) to measure the battery life of the iPhone 12 Pro Max before and after the update. The specific test conditions are as follows:

  • Experience 4 rotating tasks including: Chien Lien Quan (Detailed settings), watch YouTube, surf Facebook and use the browser (Safari).

  • Headphone plug and 100% volume.
  • Doesn’t turn on GPS, Bluetooth, battery saver mode and screen adaptive.
  • Open WiFi connection and social media notifications.
  • Dot from 100% to 0%.

The results I obtained are as follows:

Indeed, I am very impressed with the results above, the 3,687 mAh battery of the iPhone 12 Pro Max is inherently very good in iOS 14.1, then when it comes to iOS 14.5, the battery of this smartphone is even more buffalo. Specifically, the iPhone 12 Pro Max running iOS 14.5 lasted 10 hours and 19 minutes after the battery test, about 1 hour longer than the iPhone 12 Pro Max running iOS 14.1 (9 hours 28 minutes).

So those who are using iPhone 12 Pro Max can rest assured and update to new iOS, not only improved performance but also healthier battery. Overall, I feel extremely satisfied with the iOS update this time that Apple released.
