Apple Announces iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max With Triple-Lens Rear Camera and Midnight Green Color

Apple today revealed the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, its two top-of-the-line iPhone models for 2019. These new iPhones feature Super Retina XDR displays, A13 Bionic chips, and a new triple-camera system with Ultra Wide, Wide, and Telephoto camera options.

The ‌iPhone 11‌ Pro and Pro Max come in a new Midnight Green color option, as well as Space Grey, Silver, and Gold. The ‌iPhone 11‌ Pro (5.8 inches) and Pro Max (6.5 inches) include all of the same features, but differ in their sizes and battery life.

“iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are the most powerful and advanced smartphones we have ever made. They are packed with sophisticated technology that pros can count on to get their work done, and for anyone who wants the very best device made, even if they are not a pro,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

“iPhone 11 Pro has the first triple-camera system in iPhone and is far and away the best camera we’ve ever made, it provides our customers with great range of creative control and advanced photo and video editing features in iOS 13. The Super Retina XDR is the brightest and most advanced display in iPhone and the A13 Bionic chip sets a new bar for smartphone performance and power efficiency.”

These models have a textured matte glass back and a polished stainless steel band, and were designed to be durable. This means that they have the toughest glass ever in a smartphone, according to Apple, and are rated IP68 for water resistance of up to 4 meters for up to 30 minutes.

The Super Retina XDR display is a custom-designed OLED with HDR and up to 1,200 nits brightness and True Tone. The display is also more power efficient and allows users to interact with their favorite apps more quickly with Haptic Touch, which is integrated across iOS 13.

Apple's A13 Bionic chip is described as the fastest chip ever in a smartphone, featuring up to 20 percent faster CPU and GPU than the A12. The ‌iPhone 11‌ Pro offers up to four more hours of battery life in a day than the ‌iPhone‌ Xs, and the ‌iPhone 11 Pro Max‌ offers up to five hours more than the ‌iPhone‌ Xs Max.

iPhone 11 Pro camera
Of course, the camera has also been upgraded and now features a rear triple-camera system that lets users take Ultra Wide, Wide, and Telephoto images. Apple lets users easily zoom between each of the three cameras to find the best shot, and there are new professional editing tools right within the camera app.

With the tight integration between hardware and software, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max take the traditional camera experience even further in a way only Apple can. The all-new Ultra Wide camera fundamentally changes the camera experience by capturing four times more scene, great for taking landscape or architecture photos, tight shots and more. The new Wide sensor with 100 percent Focus Pixels and advanced software enables Night mode, and delivers huge improvements to photos shot in indoor and outdoor low-light environments, resulting in brighter images with natural colors and reduced noise.

A new Night Mode offers a way to brighten up pictures taken in the dark, and all of the updates come within a redesigned Camera app UI that Apple said provides a more immersive experience with an all-screen display. Later this fall, Apple will release a "Deep Fusion" update that uses advanced machine learning to do a pixel-by-pixel processing of photos to optimize for texture, details, and noise in every part of the photo.


Below is a list with a few other new features found on the ‌iPhone 11‌ Pro and Pro Max:

  • The new Apple-designed U1 chip uses Ultra Wideband technology, the first ever in a smartphone, for spatial awareness. With iOS 13.1 coming on September 30, AirDrop gets even better with directionally aware suggestions.
  • Face ID, the most secure facial authentication in a smartphone, gets up to 30 percent faster and easier to use with improved performance at varying distances and support for more angles.
  • Spatial audio provides an immersive surround sound experience and Dolby Atmos delivers powerful, moving audio to iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
  • Gigabit-class LTE up to 1.6Gbps and Wi-Fi 6 allow for even faster download speeds2 and Dual SIM with eSIM.

The ‌iPhone 11‌ Pro and ‌iPhone 11 Pro Max‌ will be available for pre-order in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB models beginning this Friday, September 13 at 5 a.m. PDT. ‌iPhone 11‌ Pro will start at $999 and the Pro Max will start at $1,099. After pre-orders, the devices will launch one week later on September 20.

We have seriously lost sight of the origin of the word “pro”. It used to mean “professional”, but now it means “more features at a higher price point, but has nothing to do with anything professional”.

Please? Are there really professional phone users?

Love the fake new name for the display to justify the higher "pro" price.

Sorry to say this, but the “presenters” of each product besides Phil, are kind of dull and drab. They don’t really create the excitement around the products/features they are introducing. Painful to watch most of this.

Superlatives seldom make good names.

The Pro Max was dismissed many times on here as fake news, but it seems Apple are going with it - goodness knows what their ‘naming-pipeline’ looks like over the next few years....
