Apple recent­ly intro­duced a new line of iPhone smart­phones. The 11th ver­sion of pop­u­lar devices instant­ly attract­ed the atten­tion of both Apple fans and crit­ics. Whether you belong to the first group or the sec­ond, today we will talk about the new line of Apple.

So, in total, the com­pa­ny intro­duced three new iPhones, name­ly the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. All three are pre­mi­um mod­els, and there are rumors that a bud­get ver­sion of the iPhone SE will arrive next year, but this rumor, while delight­ing Apple fans, has yet to be con­firmed. Well, as for the announced smart­phones, they all dif­fer from each oth­er and we will tell you exact­ly how.

Exter­nal­ly, all three smart­phones are approx­i­mate­ly the same and large­ly repeat the appear­ance of the XS series, but, of course, there are dif­fer­ences. Apple isn’t ditch­ing the near-total bezel-less notch design. But as for the reverse side of the case, here the dif­fer­ences appear. All three mod­els received a met­al case, with the only dif­fer­ence being that the iPhone 11 is equipped with an alu­minum case with a glass coat­ing, while the oth­er two smart­phones are made of stain­less steel. Dif­fer­ences also appeared in the loca­tion of the cam­eras — now the iPhone cam­era is placed in a square block in the upper left cor­ner.

Of course, the num­ber of cam­eras also varies. Only the iPhone 11, that is, the younger ver­sion of the smart­phone, remained with two cam­eras. The rest of the mod­els received three lens­es each.

But in terms of pro­tec­tion against dam­age, name­ly from water, all smart­phones have some­thing to brag about. The Pro mod­els are 4 meters under­wa­ter, while the stan­dard iPhone is only 2 meters.

As for col­ors, there are also enough dif­fer­ences from pre­vi­ous mod­els. For exam­ple, two old­er mod­els are avail­able in gold, gray, sil­ver and dark green ver­sions. And the iPhone 11 ver­sion offers brighter hues: yel­low, lilac, black, green, and white.

The last dif­fer­ence in the appear­ance of smart­phones is the weight and dimen­sions, but in this regard, every­thing is pret­ty obvi­ous. The 11 Pro weighs 188g, the 11 Pro Max weighs 226g, and the iPhone 11 weighs 194g.


You get dif­fer­ent dis­plays on each of the new iPhone mod­els. The iPhone 11 received a 6.1‑inch LCD dis­play with a res­o­lu­tion of 828x1972. The iPhone 11 Pro, on the oth­er hand, is already equipped with a 5.8‑inch OLED dis­play with a res­o­lu­tion of 1125x2436. The Pro Max also has a 6.5‑inch OLED screen, but with a high­er res­o­lu­tion of 1242x2688.

OLED dis­play is called Super Reti­na XDR, that is, it is bet­ter than LCD in qual­i­ty. How­ev­er, in terms of spec­i­fi­ca­tions, it is almost iden­ti­cal to what we have seen on pre­vi­ous flag­ships from Apple. The only dif­fer­ence is the con­trast of 2 mil­lion to 1 and the max­i­mum bright­ness of 1200 nits. In com­par­i­son, the iPhone 11 boasts 1400:1 and 625 nits.

A sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ence was the smart­phone cam­era, more pre­cise­ly, all three smart­phone mod­els. iPhone 11, unlike 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, received only 2 main cam­eras. But the oth­er two received three each.

First, let’s look at the cam­eras that all three smart­phones share: these are 12MP lens­es, one of which has a wide angle and f / 2.4 aper­ture, and the sec­ond, stan­dard — f / 1.8. iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max also include a third tele­pho­to cam­era with dou­ble opti­cal zoom.

Anoth­er sig­nif­i­cant inno­va­tion, which, by the way, almost all mod­ern flag­ships receive, is the night mode, which quite suc­cess­ful­ly allows you to take pic­tures and shoot in low light. By the way, speak­ing of video, one can­not fail to men­tion the pos­si­bil­i­ty of shoot­ing 4K at 60fps and a large num­ber of addi­tion­al modes. This was received by all smart­phone mod­els.

The front cam­era has a res­o­lu­tion of 12MP and sup­ports FaceID face recog­ni­tion, which now works much faster and copes with recog­ni­tion from var­i­ous angles.


A very com­mon prob­lem for many iPhones has been the bat­tery. At a min­i­mum, many com­plained that, with its wide capa­bil­i­ties, the smart­phone required con­stant recharg­ing. But Apple does­n’t solve the prob­lem the way oth­er com­pa­nies do. The com­pa­ny chose not to announce the exact size of the bat­tery in the pre­sen­ta­tion, but said that the bat­tery of the Pro Max, for exam­ple, lasts 5 hours more than the Xs Max, while the 11 Pro is 4 hours longer than the iPhone Xs. iPhone 11 received only an hour dif­fer­ence with the iPhone XR.

And Apple’s bat­ter­ies have always been small, so the XS went on sale with a 2658 mAh bat­tery, and the XS with a 3174. The waste of capac­i­ty was always con­trolled using soft­ware.

Charg­ing is wire­less, plus fast charg­ing, and all three smart­phones, accord­ing to the man­u­fac­tur­ers, charge up to 50% in half an hour through an 18W charg­er. For Pro mod­els, it is includ­ed, but for iPhone 11 it will have to be pur­chased sep­a­rate­ly.

Additional functions

All three smart­phones are pow­ered by the lat­est A13 Bion­ic proces­sor. This is not sur­pris­ing, on the con­trary, it is a direct con­tin­u­a­tion of the com­pa­ny’s tra­di­tion. Of course, with­out devi­at­ing from this con­cept, the com­pa­ny announced that the smart­phone received the fastest CPU and GPU, and as usu­al, Apple kept the amount of RAM secret dur­ing the announce­ment. So it imme­di­ate­ly became clear that the iPhone 11 will receive less than oth­er mod­els.

iOS 13, of course, will be avail­able specif­i­cal­ly for these mod­els, but the built-in mem­o­ry will be divid­ed into 64, 256 and 512 GB for old­er mod­els and 64, 128 and 256 for the iPhone 11.

What option to choose?

As usu­al, if you are look­ing for an upgrade from a pre­vi­ous smart­phone mod­el, then per­haps the new ones are not worth it. But if you have been think­ing about buy­ing a new iPhone for a long time, but were wait­ing for the announce­ment, then of course you will have plen­ty to choose from. The flag­ship mod­el is very inter­est­ing, but in prac­tice, you can just as well choose a small­er mod­el. As for the iPhone 11, even with the para­me­ters low­er than its peers, it will still be one of the best smart­phones, so as a bud­get option, it will be able to suit those who dream of a new iPhone.

Of course, do not for­get about pre­vi­ous mod­els. The price drops slight­ly with each new mod­el announce­ment, so now could be the per­fect time to pick up the rev­o­lu­tion­ary iPhone X or the most suc­cess­ful and attrac­tive iPhone XR.
