Apple is launching the new iPhone 11 line today. Along with the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, Cupertino is revealing the entry-level iPhone 11, which is succeeding the iPhone XR.
Apple is upgrading the camera on the iPhone 11 with a new ultra-wide lens. The new camera will be joining the existing wide-angle lens, all housed in a square camera bump on the back of the device. The new camera will enable features like optical zoom on the new iPhone 11, as well as improved Portrait mode and support for the new Highkey Mono mode on iOS 13. The new camera system also comes with next-gen smart HDR for improved quality. But more importantly, it comes with a dedicated Night Mode, which means pictures in low-light environments will finally be better than ever before.
iPhone 11 camera supports 4K video @ 60fps, and you can control the optical zoom on the camera while recording a video which is pretty cool. There’s also a QuickTake feature that lets you tap and hold the shutter button to take a video without having to switch to the Video mode in the Camera app. And the front-facing camera now comes with a 12MP wider camera, which means you can now record slow-mo video with the front camera for the first time ever.
The new iPhone 11 will feature spatial audio with Dolby Atmos support as well. iPhone 11 also comes with Apple’s new A13 Bionic processor. Apple says the A13 processor is the “fastest CPU ever” in a smartphone, and it also features the fastest GPU ever in a smartphone. The company is also promising an hour more battery life than the iPhone XR. Other new features include faster Face ID, improved durability on the glass, and Wi-Fi 6.
Apple’s new iPhone 11 will be available in a total of six colors, including new green and purple options. The new colors will join the existing white, black, yellow and (PRODUCT) RED finishes. iPhone 11 will be available starting at $699, available September 20, pre-orders open this Friday.
