Apple Announces iPhone 11 - Here's What You Need To Know

Publish date:

As expected, Apple has announced the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max at its yearly September keynote - let's take a dive into what was announced.

The iPhone 11

The iPhone 11 is the direct replacement to last year's iPhone Xr, the most popular phone in the world. It features a 6.1-inch LCD display and a design that's similar to last year's model. 

The main upgrades this year come via the cameras. The iPhone 11 features a dual-camera system that's fitted with an ultra-wide camera, 2x optical zoom, Night Mode settings, and 4K video capabilities. There's also a new mono portrait effect, and portrait mode will now work on pets.

Additionally, the iPhone 11 features Apple's latest A13 Bionic processor, an additional 1-hour of battery life, an “enhanced Face ID” and an IP68 water-resistance rating.

Colour options for the iPhone 11 include purple, white, green, yellow, black, or red. Prices will start at $699 (64GB) and launch on September 20th. Head here for more on the iPhone 11.

As well as the improved cameras from their predecessors, they are also capable of an extra 4-5 hours battery life.
