The new iPhone® 11 is here.  With three new models from which to choose, Apple® has upgraded performance, design and functionality over previous versions.  And iPhone 11 is packed with incredible engineering — featuring an unprecedented leap in battery life, significantly improved camera capabilities and several other eye-opening features.

Let’s have a closer look.

iPhone 11

The entry-level iPhone 11 improves on its iPhone XR predecessor with separate 12 megapixel Wide and Ultra Wide cameras that let you take wider shots without resorting to panoramas.  iOS 13 uses computational photography with both cameras to enable the new Night Mode, which combines multiple exposures for astonishingly better low-light photos.

The new front-facing TrueDepth® camera is also now 12 megapixels, has a wider field of view for selfies and supports Smart HDR for more natural-looking photos.  It also now records 4K video at up to 60 frames per second and 120 frames per second with slo-mo.

Like the iPhone XR, iPhone 11 has a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina® screen, but it boasts increased performance with Apple’s new A13 Bionic chip.  That makes Face ID® up to 30% faster and lets it work better at varying distances and at more angles.  While awaiting 5G cellular support, iPhone 11 does offer Gigabit-class LTE and Wi-Fi 6.  For those who need multiple cellular plans simultaneously, it supports Dual SIM with eSIM.

Apple claims many firsts with iPhone 11.  To start, it features the fastest chip ever in a smartphone, an A13 Bionic processor so advanced it is “years ahead” of the pack.  It offers all-day battery life that lets you do more and charge less.  And it’s wrapped in a case made of aluminum and glass that Apple says is the toughest glass ever used in a smartphone.

iPhone 11 comes in six colors, with prices starting at $699 for 64 GB of storage.

iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max

iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max take photos and videos to the professional level, supporting everything iPhone 11 can do and adding a third Telephoto camera.

Each of the three 12-megapixel cameras can record 4K video with extended dynamic range and cinematic video stabilization.  You can switch among the cameras smoothly while filming video.  The FiLMiC Pro app even allows you to record separate video streams from each camera at the same time.  Incredible!

For still images, the triple-camera system adds a Telephoto mode to the Wide and Ultra Wide modes in iPhone 11, and iOS 13 utilizes all three cameras and computational photography to deliver even better results.  For instance, Portrait mode can now switch between Wide and Telephoto framing to provide a wider field of view that’s great for group portraits.

Although the screen sizes remain the same as in last year’s iPhone XS (5.8 inches) and iPhone XS Max (6.5 inches), iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max sport new Super Retina® XDR OLED-based screens that have significantly higher brightness and contrast specs.

Physically, the new models are just a smidge — about half a millimeter — larger in every dimension than last year’s iPhone models.  Battery life is much better, with iPhone 11 Pro lasting up to four hours longer than iPhone XS and iPhone 11 Pro Max besting iPhone XS Max by up to five hours.

iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max models feature stainless steel band and textured matte glass backs, and they can handle being submerged in up to four meters of water for up to 30 minutes.  (But, clearly, we don’t recommend testing this.)

Pricing with 64 GB of storage starts at $999 for iPhone 11 Pro and $1,099 for iPhone 11 Pro Max.  They are available in four colors — gold, space gray, silver and the cool new midnight green.  

All iPhone 11 models are now available for pre-order, and they’ll ship to customers and stores on September 20.  As well, iPhone 8 and iPhone XR remain available at $449 and $599, respectively.
