What we’ve all been waiting for, the Apple iPhone 11 announcements. First up is the iPhone 11 which is the successor to the iPhone XR.
The Apple iPhone 11 focuses on its camera setup that consists of a wide and ultra-wide lens, instead of the telephoto lens everyone’s been speculating about. The camera allows cropping and zooming in post production, and it also has a new night mode that turns on automatically. It brightens photos, while reducing noise in low-light environments. The cameras also come equipped with the next-generation Smart HDR that takes better backlit photos.
QuickTake is a new video recording feature that makes it easier to take videos by long-pressing on the camera’s shutter button. Video quality is at 4K 60fps, along with other recording modes like slo-mo, time-lapse, and expanded dynamic range.
On the front, the iPhone 11’s selfie camera has been updated to 12MP to allow 4K videos at 60 fps, with wide-angle selfie support and slowfie – a slo-mo video selfie.
Under the hood, the iPhone 11 is powered by Apple’s new A13 Bionic chip, which Apple claims is its fastest processor ever. When it comes to battery life, Apple is saying the iPhone 11 has an hour extra compared to the battery life of the iPhone XS.
On top of its new anodized aluminum finish that makes it more durable, the iPhone 11 will be available in six colours – black, white, red, purple, green, and yellow. Prices of the iPhone 11 starts from $699 for 64GB variants and it will be available for pre-order on Friday, September the 13th and released on September 20th in Apple Stores.
iPhone 11 Pro
And for the final announcement, Apple brought out the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, ditching the ‘Plus’ name and stepping up to be the successors of the iPhone XS and XS Max.
The Pro line of the iPhone 11 features a triple-camera setup on the rear, which consists of a telephoto lens, a wide-angle lens, and a super wide-angle lens. The new super wide-angles lens is shown as the “0.5x” button in the camera app and has an aperture of f/2.4 aperture with a 120-degree field of view.
Apple is using “Deep Fusion” technology to combine nine images using a neural network analysis on every single pixel, using computational photography to fuse photo data from all three lenses in order to improve image detail. Apart from that, it also has Night Mode, just like the iPhone 11.
Besides that, Apple is touting the iPhone 11 Pro’s video capabilities. These three cameras on the rear work together to improve colour and exposure. You are now capable of recording 4K with extended dynamic range at 60fps.
Powered by the company’s latest A13 Bionic chip, the iPhone 11 Pro is capable of delivering four hours longer battery life compared to the iPhone XS, whereas the iPhone 11 Pro Max can offer five hours of additional battery life than the iPhone XS Max.
The Apple iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max will come in four colours – Space Gray, Silver, Midnight Green, and Gold. These new iPhones also feature a matte finish instead of a glossy glass finish found on the iPhone XS.
Prices start from $999 for the 64GB variant of the iPhone 11 Pro, while the iPhone 11 Pro Max will start at $1099 for the 64GB variant. Pre-orders will begin on the 13th of September with the new iPhones arriving in store on the 20th of September.
