This is it. The much anticipated (maybe?) next-generation iPhone is here. As always, the rumors have gotten most of the things right, including the odd triple camera layout on a massive square bump, the notch and the naming. What the rumors did not get right was, there’s no USB Type-C. Awww…
As anticipated, three devices were announced earlier today and they are iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. If anything, the naming is one of the best thing to come out of this. No longer I have to struggle to remember XS, XR or whatever. Those are hands down way much easier to remember.
As always, Apple’s design never fails. Well, mostly (eyes looking at AirPods…). In fact, these new guys might just look snazzier than its predecessor.
As far as key features on the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max goes, there’s the new Super Retina XDR display (5.8- and 6.5-inch), A13 Bionic chip with third-gen neutral engine, “cutting-edge pro camera system” (12 MP ultra wide, wide and telephoto) and supposedly, the longest battery life ever in an iPhone… on the iPhone 11 Pro Max, that is. Obviously, duh. Because, that thing is biggest of the three. Something is wrong if it isn’t.
As for the iPhone 11, it also gets the new A13 Bionic chip with third-gen neural engine, a “lesser” Liquid Retina HD display (6.1-inch, 1,792 x 828 pixels), an all-new dual-camera system (12 MP ultra wide and wide cameras), and a slight bump in battery life over the XR.
All three phones are IP68-rated, has Face ID and powered by iOS 13 out-of-the-box. iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max will be available in 64-, 256- and 512 GB in midnight green, space gray, silver and gold, starting at $999 and $1,099, respectively. iPhone 11 will be available in 64-, 128- and 256 GB models in purple (dope!), green, yellow, black, white and PRODUCT (RED) starting at $699.
Apple will be accepting pre-order for all three iPhone models beginning at 5AM PDT on Friday, September 13 with official availability of the devices a week later on September 20, 2019.
