Welcome on-board iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.


Apple Incorporation recently unveiled three new iPhone models; iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, alongside new Apple Watch Series 5. Their official world release was on September 20, 2019.

The phones are an upgrade to their predecessors with familiar dual rear camera for iPhone 11 and new triple rear cameras for iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max and dual front facing cameras on each devices, added Night Mode and Smart HDR on their cameras, Super Retina Display, faster A13 Bionic chip, new iOS 13 software, new colour options, improved LTE experience, Wi-Fi 6 support, Bluetooth 5.1 support and finally, iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max supports NFC, a feature that has only been on selected Android phones.

Honestly, I don’t understand why Apple introduced “Pro” to their iPhone devices (MacBook Pro or iPad Pro appears to be great with “Pro”), why not use its native “Plus” (I wouldn’t go too far as “S” is concerned) iPhone to retain the familiarity?

It is hard to understand, especially iPhone 11 Pro Max, literally! I believe, it may be or may not be worth it.

Face ID has been improved, works faster, whatever the angle/position of your face, it will unlock the phone super smooth and fast. Many had counted on Apple including an in-display fingerprint on iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max and they will forget about Face ID, sorry guys!

iPhone 11 has 6.1 inches of screen, 828×1792 pixel, 19.5:9 screen ratio IPS Super Liquid Retina Display, 4GB RAM with 64GB ROM, up to 256GB ROM, with no expandable memory support. iOS 13, A13 Bionic chip, hexa-core processor.

Triple rear cameras has been a trend we have only seen on Android phones and the cameras even goes as far as quad or five rear cameras. Apple introduced iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max with triple rear camera set-up. Sadly, the rear camera set-up on these devices come with a huge bump on it.


Apple introduced ToF(Time of Flight) 3D camera on iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max’s front facing camera, that we see both on Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Huawei P30 Pro rear cameras. They record 4K videos at 60fps on both rear and front-facing cameras.

Front and back glass built are claimed to be tough, even though the sides are built from 7000 aluminium series. The glass built is slippery, a case is recommended for these devices or if you like its beauty, leaving it without a case would be fine, as long as you are careful with it.

iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are IP68 rated dust and water resistant, up to 4 metres for 30 minutes. Support Qi wireless charging. Apple claims iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max will charge faster than their predecessors, 50% in 30 minutes, with bundled charger and will last longer on screen-time than the old models. Apple ditched standard USB and has introduced USB type C to lightning cable on these devices.

The devices will shift with different prices, depending on the model.
