The iPhone 11 has one big feature that will really matter to users, and more so than any other element: it’s got a killer price. While the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max steal the show in terms of headline specification the New iPhone has a lower price than the iPhone XR (the surprise hit from last year) and yet improves the specification in a few key areas.
It’s got faster innards a much-improved camera and comes with iOS 13 as standard and does so at a price that allows users to get a new iPhone for less than most top-end phones out there.
iPhone 11 pre-order day is here. After months of rumors, leaks, and predictions, Apple CEO Tim Cook has unveiled the company’s latest iPhone 11 models during the company’s annual September keynote.
pple announced three new iPhones the iPhone 11 (from $699) the iPhone 11 Pro (from $999) and the iPhone 11 Pro Max from $1,099. Pre-orders for the phones start September 13 at 8 a.m. ET/5 a.m. PT with online and in-store availability slated for 20 September .
The other major improvement, aside from improved video and photo performance, is in battery life. Efficiency seems to be where Apple put its emphasis with the A13, and the company claims the iPhone 11 Pro will get four hours more typical battery life than the XS, and the 11 Pro Max will see five hours more than the XS Max. That’s dramatic, and we’re looking forward to putting the phone to the test in our review. Apple also says it will bundle a more potent charging brick with the new iPhones, which is long overdue.
iPhone 11 Camera:
Meet the first triple‑camera system to combine cutting‑edge technology with the legendary simplicity of the iPhone. Capture up to four times more scene. Get beautiful images in drastically lower light. Shoot the highest‑quality video in a smartphone then edit with the same tools you love for photos. You’ve never shot with anything like it.
iPhone 11 Pro, the new iPhone 11 packs a large camera bump on the rear, with the square design housing two sensors (the iPhone XR only had one). The fact that it has this square design on the rear is interesting, as it doesn’t need this extra square space – it could just have the thin lozenge that adorned the rear of the iPhone XS. The sensors also appear larger, so packing them into the thinner area doesn’t necessarily make sense.
But Apple clearly wants users to feel like there’s some shared visual identity between the range, with all three of the iPhone 11 models packing the same rather unsightly square block on the rear.
But enough about how this bump looks – what does it actually do? Well, two sensors live in there, both 12MP.

The LCD display of the iPhone XR returns on the iPhone 11 to keep costs down compared to a pricier OLED option. It’s still bright and clear – and it seems to help when it comes to battery life, as the iPhone XR has the best battery life of any iPhone we’ve tried.
Like the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max, it’s also packing the A13 Bionic chipset inside, although we suspect with less RAM, as per last year – even though our Apple demo person said the internal spec was precisely the same.
Rumors leading up to the launch event suggested a lower performance score for the iPhone 11, so we suspect that under heavy load the device won’t be quite as snappy as the higher-end version – but Apple is saying this is the fastest CPU of any phone out there, so we think those benchmarks were bogus in the build-up.
