Apple’s iPhone has changed dramatically since it first appeared on the market way back in 2007. The first iPhone didn’t even have 3G. The second iPhone – the iPhone 3GS – fixed that but it was the iPhone 4 that really put Apple’s iPhone on the map.

Between the iPhone 4’s release and the iPhone 6s, Apple’s iPhone business grew exponentially, popularising the idea of apps, touchscreen phones, app stores, and things like mobile gaming. With iPhone, none of these things would have evolved as quickly. Apple played a HUGE role in the history of cell phones.

Modern iPhones look A LOT different from the first-generation iPhones; they’re bigger, more powerful, and packed with all kinds of tech that was nothing but a pipe dream back in 2007. But how much has the average weight of an iPhone changed since 2007? Let’s investigate…

iPhone 15 Weight Comparison

MODELDISPLAY SIZEWEIGHT
iPhone 15 Pro Max6.7 inches221g
iPhone 15 Pro6.1 inches187g
iPhone 15 Plus6.7 inches201g
iPhone 156.1 inches171g

Apple has considerably reduced the weights of the Pro models with the iPhone 15 series. 

iPhone 15 Pro Max weighs 221g, while the iPhone 15 Pro weighs 187g. Compared to the iPhone 14 Pro Max, the iPhone 15 Pro Max weighs 19g less. Similarly, the iPhone 15 Pro weighs 187g and is 19g lighter than the iPhone 14 Pro Max. 

The weight reduction can be attributed to the new Titanium frame used in the new Pros. Titanium has one of the best strength-to-weight ratios among metals, making the new iPhone stronger and lighter than ever. 

iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus don’t have a Titanium frame, so they weigh similarly to previous iPhones. iPhone 15 weighs 171g, while the iPhone 15 Plus weighs 201g. 

iPhone 14 Weight Comparison

MODELDISPLAY SIZEWEIGHT
iPhone 14 Pro Max6.7 inches240g
iPhone 14 Pro6.1 inches206g
iPhone 14 Plus6.7 inches203g
iPhone 146.1 inches172g

iPhone 14 Pro Max weighs the same as the iPhone 13 Pro Max – 240g. Making these two phones the heaviest iPhones ever. iPhone 14 Pro, however, weighs 206g, slightly more than the iPhone 13 Pro.

The bigger iPhone 14 model weighs 203g, while the smaller iPhone 14 weighs 172g. iPhone 14 series didn’t come with a Mini variant. Hence, there is a void for an ultra-lightweight iPhone in the iPhone 14 lineup. 

iPhone 13 Weight Comparison

MODELDISPLAY SIZEWEIGHT
iPhone 13 Pro Max6.7 inches240g
iPhone 13 Pro6.1 inches204g
iPhone 13 Mini5.1 inches141g
iPhone 136.1 inches174g

The iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro are on the heavier side among Apple’s offerings, with the Pro Max leading at 240g and the Pro slightly lighter at 204g.

This makes them notably more substantial in hand compared to the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 Mini, which are lighter at 174g and 141g respectively.

The Mini, despite its weight, stands out as one of the more substantial offerings in terms of features and capabilities for its size, demonstrating Apple’s ability to pack a lot into a compact frame.

What is The Heaviest iPhone?

As you’d expect, as Apple’s iPhones have gotten bigger and more advanced, adding in things like dual and triple-lens camera modules, the overall weight and dimensions of its phones have increased.

The title of the heaviest iPhone ever is shared by two models – iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Both phones weigh 240 grams, much heavier than the 221g weight of the latest iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Even Apple’s smallest modern phones – the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini – are heavier than its earlier models. The iPhone 12 mini weighs 135g, for instance, while the iPhone 13 mini comes in at 141g, making it heavier than its predecessor.

The reason Apple’s iPhones are getting heavier is twofold:

  1. On the one hand, they have more components and components have weight. Add more stuff in anywhere, and it will weigh more.
  2. The other relates to battery sizes: Apple used bigger batteries on its iPhone 13 models to improve battery performance with 5G. This is why the iPhone 13 is heavier than the iPhone 12 despite looking more or less the same.

True to the trend discussed above, the lightest iPhone ever released was the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s which weighed in at just 112g respectively, making them weigh lighters than Apple’s newer, more modern iPhones like the iPhone X and iPhone 11.

With Apple’s modern iPhones – so iPhones released between 2019 and 2024 – the lightest current iPhone model is the iPhone 15; it weighs in at 171g. That is still considerably heavier than the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s but it is very light compared to Apple’s 2022 flagship phone, the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which weighs 240g.

For reference, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is nearly DOUBLE the weight of the iPhone 6s. Yes, the iPhone 13 Pro Max has a much bigger display and way more advanced components, as well as a beefy triple-lens camera module, but 2X the weight of the iPhone 6s is incredible!

The iPhone 15 series demonstrates Apple’s efforts to balance advanced features with a more manageable weight, as seen in the table above. The iPhone 15 Pro Max, while still a hefty device, is 19 grams lighter than its predecessor, the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Which iPhone is Biggest?

Apple now makes 6.7-inch phones in two different models – Pro Max and Plus. The phones in this series come with 6.7-inch displays, making them the biggest iPhones. Here is the list of the biggest iPhones:

  • iPhone 15 Pro Max
  • iPhone 15 Plus
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max
  • iPhone 14 Plus
  • iPhone 13 Pro Max
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max

If you want the biggest iPhone that money can buy, you must go for the iPhone 15 Pro Max – the beefiest iPhone yet.

iPhone 15 Pro vs iPhone 15 Pro MaxPin

Here’s what Apple said about the iPhone 15 Pro Max during its launch on September 12, 2023:

Available in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch display sizes,2 iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max feature a strong and lightweight titanium design — a first for iPhone. This premium alloy — the same used in spacecraft — has one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios of any metal, making this Apple’s lightest Pro lineup ever. Both models feature a new refined brush texture, contoured edges, and the thinnest borders on iPhone. The Pro lineup is built to last, combining the strength of titanium with the toughest back glass in a smartphone and the industry-leading Ceramic Shield on the front. Using an industry-first thermo-mechanical process, the titanium bands encase a new substructure made from 100 percent recycled aluminum, bonding these two metals with incredible strength through solid-state diffusion. The aluminum frame helps with thermal dissipation and allows the back glass to be easily replaced. This new design highlights the Super Retina XDR display with Always-On and ProMotion technologies for an exceptional viewing experience.

Apple.

If you’re looking to cut the cost of your next iPhone, don’t go thinking you need to spend the big bucks to get a decent iPhone. You can save over 40% by getting a slightly older, refurbished model – and they look and function as good as new. I know because my current iPhone 13 is a refurbished model and it has been brilliant.
