This is the newest “pro” iPhones that are there, and it has some of the best in smartphones and features. In this, we’ll tell you a bit more about it.
This was first unveiled just recently, in September 2019 along with the iPhone 11 and this one contains a triple-lens camera, night mode, a shatter resistant glass, improved water resistance, the A13 chip, and so much more. This phone is priced at $1099, making it a premium phone that definitely is worth mentioning.
Some of the features in the iPhone 11 pro include the following:
- Triple-lens camera with a new ultra-wide-angle lens
- Matte finish for the phone, also available in a dark green color that’s new
- Night mode for mages in low light
- A more durable, and water-resistant body
- Maptic touch instead of the 3D touch
- Faster wifi and LTE, though you can’t get the full benefits of this yet until you’re in a 5G city
- Ultra-wideband support, meaning more internet support than before
- The A13 Bionic chip, which is one of the newest and most impactful chips out there
This phone was unveiled as one of the new flagship iPhones, and this came out with the iPhone 11 as well, which we’ll talk bout this as well.
Both of these pones are pretty great, but of course, the iPhone 11 Pro is much more of a device for users who want to make sure that they’re getting everything they can out of this smartphone when available.
This one contains along with the 11 the super retina XDR OLED displays, and in the iPhone 11, it’s a 5.8-inch display as well. The 11 pro has a much higher resolution too, allowing for crisp, clear looks to their phones too.
Both these new iPhones also feature HDR support, and it has a 2 million to one contrast ratio, and 800 nits of max brightness, and 1200 for HDR. True tone is also back for most iPhones, and it matches the white balance on the displays as well to the ambient lighting in the room, in order to make it easier on the eye, along with the wide color for a more vivid, true-to-life look to each of these.
Both the iPhone 11 and the pro max also don’t have the 3D touch to them, and instead, you’re getting haptic touch instead. Haptic touch is something that’s supported all across iOS 13, but it doesn’t have the pressure sensitivity of the 3D touch models.
In terms of design, both the 11 pro and the 11 pro max look similar to the XS and the XS Max models, and they have textured matte finishes that are available in either space gray, gold, silver, and the new midnight green color. This is a color not seen on any other iPhone.
While neither of these phones look all that much different, there is now a tougher glass added to both of these phone,s and it’s considered the toughest glass ever seen on a smartphone. Whether that’s true or not is debatable, but it also has an improved water resistance, going all the way up to IP 68, and from there, it’s got even more durability in the water as well. There is also spatial audio support on both of these phones, and of course, Dolby atmos is supported.
Camera Worth Improving
The biggest difference between this phone and the previous generation, is, of course, the camera. You’ve probably seen the three eye setup behind the phone. That’s the triple lens camera setup, and it features a 12 P ultra wide angle, a wide range, and a telephoto lens.
What does this mean? Well, it means that a new ultra wide angle lens now offers a 120 degrees field of view, allowing for the best landscape shots and tighter shots that you can capture without needing to adjust your iPhone position. The telephoto lens now has a larger f/2.0 aperture, and it can capture up to 40% more light compared to the iPhone XS, so it does change the camera up a lot, especially compared to how it was in the past.
The camera interface is overhauled immensely, with a very immersive and fun experience that lets you both see and capture the area that’s outside the frame if you use the ultra-wide camera if you want to.
The camera also has something called a night mode, which lets you get clear, crisp, and even bight photos when the conditions for lighting are terrible, which is similar to the night sight that you have on the Google Pixel devices.
The portrait mode also has wide and telephoto framing, allowing you to have a field of view shots of many different people. There is also Deep Fusion, which is coming to the 13.2 update, which uses advanced machine learning to optimize your photos with every pixel handled with details, texture, and noise as well.
Video recording also is overhauled in this. Of course, you’re getting the 4K video recording, but there is also extended dynamic range available at 24, 30, or 60 FPS, and all of the cameras are used for recording video, and there is also live swapping available on this too.
There is also QuickTake mode, which lets you hold down on the shutter button in order to record the video and the subject tracking, along with the audio zoom feature that matches the audio of the video framing in order to create a more dynamic sound.
The camera also has a TrueDepth system that’s been updated, with a 12 MP camera, and it makes Face ID up to 30% faster and will work with many different angles as well. For the first time, it also will now support the 120 FPS slow-mo videos, which means that you can literally take slow-mo selfies, and they’re called “slofies” colloquially. There is also a true depth camera that supports the next gen smart HDR in order to create more natural-looking photos, allowing you to fully record at 60 FPS.
There’s also the A13 bionic nanometer chip along with the third-gen neural engine. This is the fastest chip ever in a smartphone, and it’s 20% faster than the CPU and the GPU of the A12.
So there was a huge step with this phone in a different direction than ever before.
There are also new machine learning accelerators that allow for the CPU to deliver a trillion operations per second and the neural engine is faster than ever with both real-time photos and video analysis as well.
So what about battery life? Nowadays you get 18 hours of video playback, 11 hours of streamed video playback, and 65 hours of audio playback, which is four hours longer than the XS. The 11 max pro is even loner than this, with more hours added to it.
Plus, with the lightning cable it charges even faster than before.
The iPhone 11 pro is a fun phone, and for those who are looking to pay that price for that phone, then by all means, your’e getting a great deal. It’s worth it if you feel you’ll get a lot out of this phone.
