All models are equipped with a more powerful Apple A13 Bionic processor, the fastest chip ever used in a smartphone. According to Apple, it is also more power-efficient and “can use machine learning to automatically track a moving subject” and makes outdoor video shooting much more efficient.

According to the Apple website, “the iPhone 11 display has rounded corners that follow a beautiful curved design, and these corners are within a standard rectangle. When measured as a standard rectangular shape, the screen is 6.06 inches diagonally (the actual viewable area is less)”.

While the archrivals like Samsung and Huawei have equipped their phones with very advanced cameras in 2019, the new iPhone comes with some new camera features. The most obvious change is related to the front camera, upgraded from 7 megapixels to 12-megapixel TrueDepth camera. Apple has introduced a new feature called selfie, for taking slow-motion selfies.

In terms of main camera, iPhone 11 is identical to iPhone XS, having a dual 12-megapixel camera, one wide and the other ultra-wide. But iPhone 11 Pro Max are the first models to feature 3 camera lenses. The first two are the same as iPhone 11, and the third one is a 12 megapixel with a telephoto lens which enables a better zoom in photos and the blurred-background portrait mode. The two lenses on top, the wide-angle and telephoto, can be used for photography in the dark, and as Jefferson Graham from USA Today puts it, the night mode of the camera is an efficient one. Night mode is automatically activated in dark conditions, but you can also activate it manually.

In video shooting, according to apple “iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max set a new standard in the video, with the highest quality video ever in a smartphone. Each camera in the triple-camera system records brilliant 4K video with extended dynamic range and cinematic video stabilization. With a wider field of view and a large focal plane, the Ultra-Wide camera is great for shooting action videos. Users can easily zoom between each of the three cameras, while Audio Zoom matches the audio to the video framing for more dynamic sound”.

Exact battery specifications are not indicated but Apple claims that this built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery in iPhone 11 lasts up to 1 hour longer than iPhone XR–based on Tom’s Guide tests, it has “11 hours of battery life on our web surfing test, which is well above average for smartphones”–and in iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max it lasts 4 and 5 longer comparing to iPhone XS and XS Max, respectively. The battery is capable of fast charging, able to be charged up to 50% in 30 minutes.

New iPhone models are splash, water, and dust resistant, iPhone 11 in a maximum depth of 2 meters and iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max 4 meters up to 30 minutes.

In an attempt to continue environment protection policies for reducing the environmental impacts, Apple-designed iPhone 11 with arsenic-free display glass, mercury-free display, and recyclable low carbon aluminum body, and PVC and Beryllium were not used in the manufacturing process.

All models are supplied with iOS 13. Probably the most exciting feature of the new iOS is the dark mode which can give your phone interface a whole new look.
