Apple's official website shows that iPhone 14 Plus will be named iPhone 14 Max

A newly discovered reference on Apple's website referring to the iPhone 14 Plus as "iPhone 14 Max" suggests that Apple's original non-Pro version of the 6.7-inch device was intentionally named "iPhone 14 Max," but later Apple changed its mind.

Dutch blog iCreate found that in two examples on Apple's website, Apple refers to the iPhone 14 Plus as the "iPhone 14 Max." First, in a support document to help users identify an iPhone, Apple named the five-color image of the iPhone 14 Plus model "iPhone-14-Max-colors".

Second, on the page that provides the company's product compliance and regulatory information, Apple clearly lists "iPhone 14 Max," along with the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

In the previous intensive iPhone 14 series revelations, Apple iPhone 14 Max models appeared frequently. It wasn't until a week before Apple's iPhone launch event that it was revealed that the model would be called the "iPhone 14 Plus," the first time Apple has re-used the "Plus" name since the iPhone 8.

A leaked analysis in June this year believed that using "iPhone 14 Plus" instead of "iPhone 14 Max" may be a better choice, which can reduce the confusion of Apple consumers. Since "iPhone 14 Max" and iPhone 14 Pro Max sound almost identical, that means some customers may not be able to distinguish the subtle differences in the names and end up buying the incorrect model.

The 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus have the same A15 chip, features, and cameras, with the latter having a larger screen and battery. Apple may think "Plus" is more appropriate to name the larger screen device of the iPhone 14 Standard Edition. The iPhone 14 Plus is available for pre-order this month and will begin shipping to customers on Friday, October 7.
