AT&T’s WarnerMedia is betting big on Wonder Woman 1984 drawing in subscribers to the HBO Max platform, releasing the film theatrically and on the streaming platform simultaneously on Dec. 25. Now, it’s ensuring that those looking to watch the sequel to the 2017 hit will be able to do so at home in 4K HDR. 

On Tuesday, WarnerMedia announced that Wonder Woman 1984 will be its first title available in the higher resolution 4K format, with the film also supporting HDR10, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. Those interested in watching in 4K HDR will need a compatible TV (and sound system in the case of Atmos) as well as a “supported” device. 

At the moment, the list of supported devices includes:

iPhone 12 Pro Max camera: See my rugged photo adventure along California’s coastline

California’s Lost Coast is a world of its own at the edge of the continent. Located in Humboldt County, in the far northern part of the state, this remote stretch of pristine coastline sits atop the backpacking trip bucket list. With few towns or major roads, it’s best explored via the 25-mile Lost Coast Trail that winds along black sand beaches and rocky shores.

A few weeks ago, I took the iPhone 12 Pro on location to the high Sierra, visiting Lake Tahoe for a wondrous 24 hours to test its camera. The results were excellent, and now Apple’s adding even more camera punch with the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Now that it’s officially on sale, let’s take a look at Apple’s latest photographic monster that’s definitely made for photographers.

iPhone 12 Pro Max teardown reveals a truly huge main camera

It’s no secret that Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro Max boasts a larger main camera, but it’s now clear just how enormous that sensor really is. iFixit has posted a teardown of the iPhone 12 Pro Max that illustrates the camera size in vivid detail. While the cam itself is visibly larger, it’s the sensor-shift stabilization that puts it over the top — the full unit makes the regular 12 Pro’s main shooter look dainty by comparison. Apple might have needed to make “compromises” to stuff that camera into the smaller phone, iFixit said.

Many other parts are larger, too. It’s not surprising that the battery is the largest for any current iPhone at 14.13Wh (albeit smaller than the 15.04Wh from the 11 Pro Max). However, the speaker and Taptic Engine are also huge, at least compared to the compact parts inside

Review: Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro Max is a lot of smartphone, and not for everybody

The iPhone 12 Pro Max is more than just the largest model in the 2020 iPhone collection, with the super-sized smartphone boasting better battery life and even camera specifications that improve on what the iPhone 12 offers.

iPhone 12 Pro Max – display, design, and size

The external appearance of the iPhone 12 Pro Max matches the rest of the iPhone 12 family, with flat sides that produce more defined edges to the stainless steel body, as well as making it closer in style to the iPad Pro lineup. Along with the stronger chassis, Apple is also employing its toughened Ceramic Shield glass to the front and back for added durability, with the rear also sporting a textured matte glass effect.

The latest teardown from iFixit shows how huge the iPhone 12 Pro Max camera is

The iPhone 12 Pro Max is Apple’s biggest iPhone ever, with a 6.7-inch display that boasts a camera system our reviewer called “one of the most confident smartphone cameras.” In its latest teardown, iFixit shows how big this impressive camera actually is compared to other iPhones.

The iPhone 12 Pro Max camera is quite large

The primary wide-angle sensor “dwarfs the iPhone 12’s sensor,” iFixit says, coming in around 47 percent larger. But it has the same 12 MP resolution as the smaller model. The 12 Pro Max’s sensor-shift image stabilization system— found on most DSLR cameras— adds bulk to the large main camera, iFixit found.

The 12 Pro Max’s L-shaped battery is the largest among all current iPhone models, weighing in at 14.13Wh, compared to the 8.57Wh in the mini and the 10.78 Wh in the 12 and 12 Pro. But iFixit notes that’s actually slightly smaller than

HBO Max to stream on Amazon Fire TV, ‘Firestick’ and Fire tablets starting Tuesday


Amazon’s Fire TV Stick, sometimes referred to by customers as a “Firestick,” is one of its most popular streaming devices. 

Sarah Tew/CNET

HBO Max will launch its dedicated app on Amazon’s Fire TV devices, including its popular dongle often referred to as the “Firestick,” and Fire tablets on Tuesday. The change gives HBO Max’s customers an easier way to stream the service on Amazon products, and it’s the latest development that fills in some gaps in app support on the most popular streaming devices

The deal, announced Monday, puts to rest a major standoff that’s likely crimped HBO Max since its launch in May. This leaves Roku as the last major streaming device platform lacking support for HBO’s new app, which offers extra movies, shows and originals that don’t run on its regular network.

Halide developer calls iPhone 12 Pro Max camera improvements ‘mind-blowing’

Halide developer Sebastiaan de With has published an in-depth look at the iPhone 12 Pro Max camera and the “mind-blowing” photographic improvements that it brings.

The developer and photographer typically shares his thoughts on Apple camera technology when the company releases a new device, and this year is no different. In his evaluation, de With breaks down the new camera features on Apple’s latest 6.7-inch handset and puts them to the test.

For example, one of the main differences between the iPhone 12 Pro and the larger iPhone 12 Pro Max is the addition of a larger sensor. It’s about 47% bigger than the previous generation, and allows the device to bring in more light to reduce noise and bump up sharpness.
