Apple has unveiled the new iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The spiritual successors to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, Apple’s top-of-the-line iPhones now sport the ‘Pro’ tag, bringing the range in line with the Mac and iPad family.
Featuring Super Retina XDR displays, A13 Bionic chips, and a new triple-camera system with Ultra Wide, Wide, and Telephoto camera options, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max is for power-users.
Available in a stunning new Midnight-Green color option, as well as Space Grey, Silver, and Gold, the iPhone 11 Pro features a 5.8-inch display, whilst the iPhone 11 Pro Max features a 6.5-inch display, offering the same features with different form factors and battery capacities.
Without a doubt, the biggest selling point for the iPhone 11 Pro family is its triple-camera system, offering unparalleled creative control and the most advanced photo and video editing features ever seen in an iPhone.
Featuring Ultra Wide, Wide and Telephoto cameras Apple has created a pro-level camera experience designed for everyone, offering the highest quality video ever seen in a smartphone.
Each of the three cameras is capable of recording in 4K with extended dynamic range and cinematic video stabilization, and thanks to its wider field of view and large focal plane, the Ultra-Wide camera is great for shooting action videos. Because users can zoom between each of the three cameras with an Audio Zoom that matches the audio to the video framing for more dynamic sound, you’ll never miss an important moment again.
Design-wise, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max feature a similar chassis to the 2018 iPhones, though have a stunning texture matte glass back and polished stainless steel band design, and feature the toughest glass ever used in a smartphone.
What’s more, both of the phones are rated IP68 for water resistance up to 4 meters for up to 30 minutes, offering even greater protection over the iPhone XS and Max, even from liquids like coffee and sodas.
The models also sport a new Super Retina XDR display, which is an Apple-designed OLED that provides users an “immersive HDR viewing experience for movies and other HD videos” with up to 1,200 nits brightness.
What’s more, the display features wide color support with system-wide color management and True Tone to offer a natural viewing experience, and with a 2 million-to-one contrast ratio with true blacks, the device offers the most vivid viewing experience ever on an iPhone, as well as being more power-efficient than previous models.
Like the iPhone 11, the new iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max features the A13 Bionic chip, which offers up to 20 percent faster CPU and GPU than the A12 chip.
And because the A13 Bionic was built with machine learning in mind, the CPU can deliver more than 1 trillion operations per second, increasing the speed and performance of the iPhone even for the most complex of tasks – without impacting battery life.
In fact, the iPhone 11 Pro now offers up to four more hours of battery life in a day than iPhone XS, whilst the iPhone 11 Pro Max offering up to five hours more than iPhone XS Max.
What wasn’t announced as part of this year’s iPhone 11 range, however, was the widely-rumored bilateral wireless charging feature, with insiders suggesting that last-minute production issues forced Apple to scrap the idea.
Still, Apple had to introduce a larger battery to accommodate this proposed tech, so it’s good news for power users who struggle to get through the whole day on a single charge.
Stay tuned for more news on the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max soon.
