It appears to be a big day for Apple leakers, if the following information proves to be true.
Leaker Jon Prosser has shared alleged camera and display settings for the current production validation (PVT) mode of the alleged 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The screenshots show off the following supposed Camera settings:
- Enable Camera Features – Enable camera features. Please check your PVT models hardware capabilities before enabling non-software features.
- Enable LiDAR CA – This enables LiDAR assisted auto focus and subject detection for Video and Night Mode. TTR unsupported, file manually.
- Enable Video Modes – Enables enhanced video recording modes. (4k@120FPS/4k@240FPS Slow Mo)
- Enable Enhanced Night Mode – Enables enhanced night mode with extended exposure times. SALPA is only available with a tripod or when the device is on a steady surface. This setting is unaffected by LiDAR CA
- Enable Advanced Noise Reduction
- Enable Bit Depth Video
- Enable Zoom Capabilities
A second screenshot shows off Display settings for this alleged iPhone 12 Pro Max:
- Enable High Refresh Rate – Please check if your PVT model supports high refresh rate. Attempting to enable high refresh rate on unsupported hardware may provoke unexpected behaviour.
- Enable Adaptive Refresh Rate – If enabled, the device will alter the refresh rate from 120hz to 60hz in according to the content displayed on-screen.
“I have video showing the source toggling these settings. Video of a PVT iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7”)…shows the notch”, explains Prosser.
“Some PVT models [are] equipped with 120hz, and some aren’t (as noted in the screenshots). This backs up my tweet from a couple days ago, reporting that they haven’t given up on testing 120hz on iPhone 12 Pro yet,” claims a confident Prosser.
iPhone 12 Pro details:
True Depth array same size.
Bezels are “noticeably thinner”
Slightly larger display – making the notch “appear” smaller.
Face ID works from wider angles. Even flat on a table.
Sides are flat, but glass has slight curve.
Rear cam module is 10% larger.

A similar leak from EverythingApplePro shared shortly after says, “Actual iPhone 12 Pro Max (PVT) notch shot with 120Hz settings. Same notch size, slightly more room for ‘AM/PM’ badge because of 6.7-in screen, battery icon is a bit different. Thanks to @MaxWinebach.”
Here’s another image shared by EverythingApplePro:
Now, while these look legitimate I can’t help but notice some strange irregularities in the descriptions within these settings.
For starters, the line “Please check your PVT models hardware capabilities” has a grammatical error, as “models” should be either spelled “model’s” or “models’”.
Secondly, Apple spells its slow motion camera feature as “Slo-mo” and not “Slow Mo” with a “w”. This alone makes my BS meter go off the charts.
You can also notice “120hz to 60hz” should be spelled in the format “120Hz to 60Hz” for Hertz.
Again, these could be Photoshopped but we’ll have to wait for Prosser’s video to find out more.
EverythingApplePro also shared some images detailing a “6.7” Super Retina XDR Display” with “2788-by-1284-resolution all-screen OLED Display with 458 ppi and Haptic Touch”, to go with a screenshot showing “Wired and Wireless fast-charge capable (20W adapter sold separately).”
Another image shows the footnote for “Fast-charge capable adapter is sold separately and not included in the box.”

Apple’s current website writes its iPhone 11 Pro display resolution in the format, “2688‑by‑1242-pixel resolution at 458 ppi” so the wording in the screenshot above is missing the word ‘pixel’. Apple is fairly predictable when it comes to these things.
Let’s wait and find out if these iPhone 12 Pro Max settings are indeed real or not.
