Help, I’m feeling stupid

I’ve looked , noted, added, subtracted and my brain is frazzled.
Can someone tell me PLEASE, in inches, exactly how much larger an iPhone 14 Pro Max is than an iPhone 12 Pro Max?
Thank you from the bottom of my poor tired heart.

This shows screen size (which may not be quite what you're looking for?)
[www.apple.com]

Select the phone from the pull downs on top, and the screen size is down a bit.

Hope this helps a bit!

I just scrolled down futher...

The 14 Pro Max is .02" narrower and .02" thicker than the 12 Pro Max.

.02" is just a teeny tiny bit more than 3/16" 1/32", if you're not great with decimal distances.

You're thinking 3/16 is close to .2"
.02" is closer to 5/256" and I would guess the two appear virtually identical in size.

Great news, thanks all!
So what’s all the hooey about how big it is if it’s the same size as both the 12 and 13 Pro Max?
So happy I went with the 14 Pro Max 512 (purple) because I love the size of my 12 Pro Max.

I was thinking 1/32"... ( 0.03125")... why I wrote 3/16", I don't know... (0.1875" )...

Direct comparison of 12promax v 14promax here:
[versus.com]

Under SPECS, scroll down to Design to see physical dimensions in cgs units (centimeter,grams,seconds):
(I used the Terminal 'units' command to convert values)
(~25.4 mm to the inch, ~28.4 gm to the oz)

1. Weight

228g == 8.0424633 oz (Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max)

240g == 8.4657509 oz (Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max)

14 P M is just under 1/2 oz heavier (actual diff is 0.42328754 oz)


2. Thickness

7.40mm == 0.29133858 in (Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max)

7.85mm == 0.30905512 in (Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max)

14 P M is 0.018 in thicker (18 mils) (actual diff is 0.01771654 in)


3. Width

78.1mm == 3.0748031 in (Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max)

77.6mm == 3.0551181 in (Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max)

14 P M is 0.02 in narrower (20 mils). (actual diff is 0.0196850 in)


4. Height

160.8mm == 6.3307087 in (Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max)

160.7mm == 6.3267717 in (Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max)

14 P M is 0.004 in shorter (4 mils) (actual diff is .0039370 in)


and lots of other specs as well.

One thing one can count on is the case of a previous 'Phone fitting any later model 'Phone.

A small pet peeve of mine.

Good question.

At the moment, and maybe for some time still, I'm not interested in a 'Phone larger than the 12 mini, so I hadn't looked into the 14 lineup other than to watch the keynote.

They're really interesting phones.

But I thought they were much larger than they actually are based on comments around the 'net by pundits who should know better.

Any way Kate, congratulations on picking the one you want.

If it wasn't, you could easily cancel or return it, but that could set you way back in delivery time for your next pic.

I think the hooey is about having a non-Pro XL phone, the 14 Plus.
