How do you choose the right size for your iPhone?
Choose iPhone size
We help you choose the right size by going through the following:
- The difference between regular and Plus and Max versions
- iPhone 12 and 12 Pro have an intermediate size
- The difference between format and screen size
- Operate a small screen with one hand
The difference between regular and Plus, Max and mini versions
Many Apple devices have a larger version. For example, the Apple iPhone 8 has a ‘Plus’ version and the Apple iPhone 12 Pro has a ‘Max’ version. The difference between these 2 variants is mainly the screen size. In addition, Plus and Max models can have more working memory and/or a larger battery. With the iPhone 12 mini, Apple is introducing a small variant of the entry-level model for the first time. With the iPhone 12 mini, you get a handy 5.4-inch screen. On the other hand, you lose an hour of your battery life; such a small device does not fit a large battery.
Intermediate buddy: iPhone 12 and 12 Pro
iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are in between their generation in terms of size. As a result, they have a nice intermediate size if you think the mini version is too small and the Max version is too large. These models have a borderless 6.1-inch screen and fall into the ‘average size’ category thanks to their dimensions.
Carry in your pocket: a small size
For many people, pockets are not deep enough to store an iPhone. But if your trouser pockets are still deep enough, it’s nice if your device fits in them. In that case, opt for a small iPhone. With a small device, you can also easily operate the screen with one hand.
Watching movies and playing games: a big screen
Do you play mobile games in the dentist’s waiting room or do you regularly run Netflix marathons on your iPhone? Then nothing is better than being carried away by as many details as possible. The bigger the screen, the more vividly your favorite characters come to the fore.

Consider a Plus or Max variant if you…
- … operate your device with 2 hands.
- … like to be carried away in games, films, and series.
Consider a regular variant if you…
- … finds it important that you can operate your device with one hand.
- … want to spend as little as possible. Because regular variants are cheaper than Max and Plus variants.
