Another year, another new iPhone lineup. The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max cost $699, $999, and $1,099, respectively. Whether these phones are worth the upgrade comes down to the features and functionality you find most important. Apple did not disappoint as there are certain features that will force you to abandon your current phone and buy the new iPhone 11. Check out the most interesting features in this year’s new iPhones.
Triple camera setup
The iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max debut a new triple-camera system with wide, ultra-wide, and telephoto lenses. The triangular configuration includes 12MP sensors, a 120-degree field of view, better optical image stabilization, and more to capture up to 4x more detail in a scene, shoot higher-quality video, and get great low-light shots.
Night mode now turns on automatically when it’s dark enough to brighten photos and reduce noise in low-light and indoor photos. Using both automatic processing and manual controls, users can take crisp low-light shots in previously hopeless environments for a good photo. Just make sure nothing in the frame is moving.
The new ultra-wide camera comes with a redesigned camera interface that gives users a translucent view of what’s outside the frame, with the ability to tap into an ultra-wide view to get a bigger shot. The ultra-wide camera also allows for edge-to-edge landscape shots, and the ability to virtually “back up” when taking photos in tight spaces using 4x optical zoom.
Super Retina XDR Displays
While the iPhone 11 still has an LCD screen, the 11 Pro and Pro Max feature new OLED haptic touch Super Retina XDR displays that are 15 percent more energy-efficient than their predecessors. They have what Apple calls Super Retina XDR displays, with a 2 million-to-one contrast ratio and 1,200-nit peak brightness when viewing extreme dynamic range content.
Improved Battery Life
Battery life is bumped up across the board. The iPhone 11 boasts an hour longer battery life than the iPhone XR, the iPhone 11 Pro has a whopping four more hours than the iPhone XS, and Apple touts the iPhone 11 Pro Max as getting five more hours of battery life than the iPhone XS Max.
A13 bionic chip
All three phones are powered by the new A13 Bionic chip, which has 8.5 billion transistors and is capable of over 1 trillion CPU operations per second. On the processing front, the 11 Pro and Pro Max support better natural language processing and character animation in augmented reality apps.
