iPhone 11 Release Date
Fall 2019 event, Apple announced that the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max will be released on September 20, 2019. Preorders will begin on September 13 at 5 a.m. PDT.
The iPhone 11 will retail for $699 only. The iPhone 11 Pro will retail for just $999 , and the 11 Pro Max will retail for $1,099 only. Apple is also promoting trade-ins of previous models to lower the cost.
The iPhone 11 camera has wide and ultra-wide angle lenses, rather than wide and telephoto like many people had anticipated. This feature gives users the ability to adjust cropping and zooming after the picture is taken. There’s also a new night mode that comes on automatically to brighten photos even in very low-light situations, and reduces noise. It also has a next-generation Smart HDR.
Introducing QuickTake, a new video feature that makes it easier to take videos by long-pressing on the camera button. Video quality is 4K quality at 60 fps, as well as slo-mo, time-lapse, and expanded dynamic range.
The front-facing camera also has been updated to 12 MP having wide-angle selfie support when the phone is in landscape. You can also take 4K video at 60 fps, as well as slow-mo videos.
The iPhone 11 is available in six different colors: black, white, red, purple, green, and yellow. The iPhone 11 features a new anodized aluminum finish, which Apple says is more durable than any other smartphone. There’s also Dolby Vision audio too.
The iPhone 11 is powered by Apple’s new next generation A13 (AI) Bionic chip, which Apple touts as its faster processor ever. As for battery life, the iPhone 11 packs a one-hour-longer battery life than its predecessor iPhone XS.
iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max Features
Apple has also announced an iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max that will retail for $999 and $1,099 only.
Color-wise, introducing a new midnight green color, a refreshed space gray, refreshed silver, and a new gold finish. Apple is also promoting a wider dynamic range HQ display called Super Retina XDR. As was rumored, it has a new triple camera system design— a triangular array of lenses in a rectangular camera bump.
Apple also has added the ultra-wide lens on both the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max, which is shown in the Camera app as a 0.5x button. User has to do is just zoom out to see more and take wider shots, from 0.5x to 2x. The ultra-wide has an f/2.4 aperture with a 120-degree field of view.
There are also upgrades to the telephoto and wide-angle lenses, including 100% Focus Pixels. There is a new Night mode to take illuminated and bright low-light photos similar to the Google Pixel Night Sight feature.
Apple is using computational photography to fuse photo data from all three camera lenses in order to improve image detail. A technology called “Deep Fusion” combines nine images using an AI Based neural network analysis on every single pixel. Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller described it as “computational photography mad science.”
Like with the non-Pro version, Apple has upgraded the front camera with a 12-megapixel sensor. The camera is also wider so you can now rotate to landscape on the selfie cam to fit more people into the single frame. There is also slow-mo on the front camera for the first time.
