Apple Officially Announces iPhone 11 Series

The iPhone 11 family finally arrives and it’s the direct successor to the iPhone XR. Just like the XR, the iPhone 11 has glass and metal design with multiple color options, black, white, yellow, red, purple and green. Coral and blue color options are no longer available. It comes with the same 6.1-inch display with 828 x 1792 pixel resolution and 326ppi density. With OLED technology, the display offers dynamic range capabilities and better brightness. Compared to the XR, the display is 15 percent more efficient and it’s now called the Super Retina XDR display.

Under the hood, there’s the new A13 Bionic SoC, which is roughly 20 percent faster than the previous A12, which is a decent improvement in performance. The A13 has more efficient technology, extending the battery life by about one hour.  There’s a 12MP primary shooter on the back with various improvement to producing better image quality for indoor and outdoor situations. It includes the useful Night Mode for the low-light scenario. With this technology, the new camera can draw more light and show more details in a very dark environment. The iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max offer triple-lens camera setup, featuring primary, zoom telephoto and ultra-wide angle sensor. Although the primary camera still has 12MP resolution as on the regular iPhone 11, the Pro models have auto-focus capability.

The basic iPhone 11 with 64GB of internal storage will be available for $699. For the 128GB version, it will cost you slightly more at $749. If you plan to record a lot of videos, download HD films and play multiple demanding games, the 256GB version will set you back for $849. The basic iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max models with 64GB storage, start at $999 and $1,099, respectively. For the 256GB variant, you will pay $150 more. The most expensive version will be the iPhone 11 Pro Max with 256GB storage and it will cost you $1,449. Pre-orders for three iPhone 11 versions will begin on September 13 and the actual shipment will start on September 20.

In the same event, Apple also confirms the imminent availability of the 10.2-inch iPad, which is an upgrade over the basic iPad with a 9.7-inch display. Other than the bigger display, it will have Smart Connector keyboard technology, A10 Fusion processor and Apple Pencil support. It will use iPadOS, instead of the standard iOS software with improved multitasking capability.
