iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max introduced with three rear cameras


The iPhone 11 isn’t the only new handset that Apple revealed today. In fact, it’s got two other models coming this month.

The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are the follow-ups to the iPhone XS and XS Max, and they’ve got a few notable upgrades. The first one you’ll probably notice is the addition of a third rear camera. Apple has added a 12MP ultra wide angle camera with 120-degree field of view to its Pro iPhones, and there are 12MP wide angle and 12MP telephoto cameras included as well.


Some of the new software features coming with the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max cameras include Night Mode, which will give you brighter shots with reduced noise in low-light environments, as well as the ability to choose wide or telephoto framing when you’re snapping Portrait Mode shots. Apple also touts that the telephoto camera on the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max uses a larger aperture to capture 40 percent more light than the iPhone XS, and Smart HDR uses machine laerning to recognize subjects in the frame of your photo and relight them for more natural-looking photos.

The display on the iPhone 11 Pro is a 5.8-inch 2436×1125 OLED panel that Apple calls Super Retina XDR, while the iPhone 11 Pro Max gets a 2688×1242 OLED Super Retina XDR screen. Both displays have been upgraded to offer up to 1,200 nits of brightness, and HDR, Dolby Atmos, and Dolby Vision support is included, too. Haptic Touch will let you use app shortcuts to quickly jump into a certain part of an app, like the selfie mode in the Camera.

The Apple A13 Bionic processor inside the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max offers up to 20 percent faster CPU and GPU performance compared to the A12 chip in the iPhone XS and XS Max.


Another notable upgrade with the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max involves battery life. Apple touts that iPhone 11 Pro will get you up to four hours of additional battery life over the iPhone XS, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max can get up to five hours of additional battery life over the iPhone XS Max. And to help you refill those batteries more quickly, Apple will include its faster 18W power adapter with each Pro phone.

The body of the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max feature IP68 water and dust resistance, and both models come with a textured matte glass black and stainless steel band. They’ll be available in four finishes, including Midnight Green, Space Gray, Silver, and Gold.

When it comes to cellular connectivity, the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max include support for LTE bands 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/13/14/17/18/19/20/25/26/29/30/34/38/39/40/41/42/46/48/66/71. There’s 4×4 MIMO and LAA support in there, too, as well as dual SIM with eSIM support.

Now for the important info: pricing. Here’s how Apple’s prices for the new Pro iPhones breaks down:

    Can I get a free xr now!

  • Nikitao1

    So it cost an extra $50 to go up to 128gb on the 11, but $150 to go up to 256gb on the 11 pro and Max??? What kind of bassakwards bs is that?

  • AnthonyRyan89

    I’m really liking the Midnight Green

  • Kirk

    $1100 for 64gb of storage . LOL. What a joke.

  • HeatFan786

    What’s T-Mobile’s promo for trade ins this time? They may need to dig down deep and do the iPhone 7 like promo where they take on the XR/X/XS/XS Max to get people to really upgrade and sell the phone “free on EIP” probably. If not, I can see a repeat of 2018 where the 11 is the main seller and the others are going to move somewhat. Apple isn’t in a position to hit this phone launch out of the park.

  • Sharti24

    Im not impressed with this new iphone and will be buying a used XS max on swappa to replace my 6s plus

    • JJ

      That’s a great idea. This will be the time to get a used iphone on swappa.

  • Joe2050

    I’ll pass. No 5G, don’t want to upgrade again for another grand. Hoping for a ToF sensor/in-screen Touch ID/no notch or at least smaller for next year.

  • superg05

    apple still being stingy with there storage what is Samsung base storage now that it has become cheaper is it 256gb on the lowest model galaxy s and note model and it was 128gb last year right?

  • Note10Plus IsBOSS

    Definitely glad I could sit back and watch the show. My collection of handsets are perfectly fine don’t need any more. Next on my list in the coming weeks is the Galaxy Watch Active 2 then the TabS6 in October.

    • Albert Orange

      Still buying Samsung trash… LOL

  • Jay Holm

    I wouldn’t pay $999 for a phone with only 64GB’s in 2019, minimum 128GB for $850 or more.

    • Marvosa

      IMO, it doesn’t much matter. On one hand, I agree with you. For $1,000 we should get more than 64 GB of storage, but on the other, it doesn’t really matter because the people who can afford $1,000+ phones will never keep them long enough to ever use that amount of space whether it’s 64GB, 128GB or 256GB. E.g.,my current phone (S10+) will be traded in for the next gen model long before I approach any storage limits, so I never pay for more storage.

      Granted, my S10+ came with 128 GB stock, so I never had to worry about it, but when my wife wanted an iPhone XS, I convinced her to get a 64 GB model because if she continues to upgrade every year, that extra storage will just be a waste of money because it’ll never get used and the trade-in value is negligible if not the exact same between versions.

      So, unless you’re syncing multiple full-length movies to your phone for offline viewing on long flights, etc, the 64 GB version is more than enough for the average user.

      • Yonatan Ben Magen

        Yeah but what I don’t understand is WTF is the 32GB out 256GB on a stock unlocked Note10+ out of the box being used for ? My phone from Samsung was delivered earlier this week and haven’t had to switch everything over. But that’s insane.

        I still store most of my pictures to a 128GB SD on the fence about ordering the newish UFS microsd which is supposed to support SSD speeds R/W because if Note 11 ditch SD storage what will it be good for maybe newer or future DSLR or maybe GoPro ( but write speeds aren’t needed and battery life is lacking on GoPro (also don’t even know if GoPro even has a SD slot).
