The iPhone 11 Pro series packs a major upgrade over the iPhone XS. Apple has retained the same design language as the iPhone XS but upgraded almost everything else about it. The handset is a major upgrade in almost every aspect over its predecessor.
This includes improvements to the display, design, battery life, camera, and more. Below is a look at some of the key new features of the iPhone 11 Pro series.
The iPhone 11 Pro series features a polished stainless steel chassis and strengthened glass at the back and rear. The phones have a matte finish and feature a single glass panel at the rear which also covers the rear camera. In Apple’s term, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max have a ‘pro’ design.
Apart from the new finish, the iPhone 11 Pro series is also available in a new Midnight Green color. The other usual colors — Silver, Space Gray, and Gold — also look different due to the frosted glass back.
The iPhone 11 Pro series feature Apple’s new Super Retina XDR display. While the resolution and display size are the same as the iPhone XS series, the OLED panel on the iPhone 11 Pro series features higher brightness level, better contrast ratio, and more. It is also more power-efficient.
The iPhone 11 Pro series features Apple’s newest A13 Bionic chip which once again brings a massive jump in terms of performance. It is by far the fastest CPU and GPU on a mobile chip in a smartphone right now. The Neural engine has also been updated and coupled with everything, the A13 Bionic is capable of processing over one trillion operations every second.
The iPhone 11 Pro packs a triple-camera system. Apart from the flexibility of an ultra-wide angle camera and a telephoto sensor, the iPhone 11 Pro also offers impressive video recording capabilities. Apple has also added a dedicated Night mode to the camera app for better low-light photos.
Improved TrueDepth Camera
The front TrueDepth camera system has also improved on the iPhone 11 Pro. It now features a higher resolution 12MP sensor with a wider field of view. This also benefits Face ID since it can now work over a wider angle.
Longer Battery Life
The iPhone 11 Pro series offers notably better battery life than the iPhone XS series. Apple claims the iPhone 11 Pro can last up to four more hours than the iPhone XS while the iPhone 11 Pro Max offers up to 5 hours longer battery life than the iPhone XS Max.
Living up to its Pro tagline, Apple is finally bundling an 18W USB-C charger with the iPhone 11 Pro series. This means the phones can be charged from 0-50% in just over 30 minutes. The fast charging experience with the iPhone 11 Pro will change the way how people use their phone especially when its battery is low.
