Last week, Apple launched a new generation of iPhones: the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. In-store purchases start on September 20, while pre-orders began on September 13.

Prices for the iPhone 11 start at $699. Engadget, a technology blog that reviews new gadgets, said that they think the price is pretty good for what you are get, “…this time, Apple made the deal even sweeter. Thanks to some under-the-hood improvements, a new camera and it’s $699 starting price, you’re getting more of what matters for slightly less.” Starting prices for the Pro and Pro Max are $999 and $1099. 

Some new features of the iPhone 11 include a better camera and brighter flash. The new back camera has wide and ultra-wide lenses that improve the zooming and cropping of pictures. There is a new automatic Night Mode to make the camera brighter, which is useful for taking pictures in the dark. The front-facing camera has been updated to a 12-megapixel sensor, with a wide-angle selfie mode to capture more of the area around you. The new phone is also said to be water-resistant, and the battery life is more longer-lasting than ever. Apple has also said that the anodized aluminum finish is the most durable yet. The new iPhone is available six colors: black, white, red, purple, green, and yellow. 

The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max have all the same features, except for the fact that the Pro Max is a slightly larger version of the Pro. The triple camera is the most talked about feature on these new phones; it has a wider dynamic range display, known as the Super Retina XDR. There are ultra-wide lenses on both the front and back cameras, and both can shoot 4k video quality on them. In addition to the ultra-wide lens, the front camera has a 12-megapixel sensor, which you can now take slow-motion videos with. Battery life is said to be four to five hours more than the iPhone XR. Four color options have been released, space grey, midnight green, silver, and gold. It also has the anodized aluminum finish. 

Toms Guide, a website that helps you see the pros and cons of new technology, also reviewed the iPhone 11 and said, “The iPhone 11 represents a big leap forward for photography, thanks to a new ultra-wide lens and a new Night Mode for better low-light performance. Apple has also upped the ante with greater video-recording quality while also delivering superb battery life.” 

However, if you are not ready to upgrade your iPhone to the latest version, you can still buy previously released iPhones, like the iPhone XR.
