The iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro series might come with minimal bezels surrounding their display but that does not make them small devices by any means. It makes them easier to carry around in one’s pocket but these phones are still too big for one-handed use. Apple does include Reachability in iOS that helps with one-handed use. If you are coming from an older iPhone, you are likely going to be confused as to how you can enable and use Reachability on your iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro.
How to use iPhone and iPad
Apple has finally gotten around to bundling an 18W USB-C fast charger with the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. However, the cheaper iPhone 11 continues to come with a paltry 5W charger. It does come with fast charging support and with the right accessories, you can fast charge your iPhone 11 as well.
iOS 13 introduced a number of new features but it did not bring a redesigned home screen experience on the iPhone that many people were expecting. Apple also took away 3D Touch and replaced it with Haptic Touch which has made certain tasks a bit difficult. With 3D Touch, the process to rearrange and delete apps from the iOS home screen was simple since one just had to adjust how hard they would press on the display. With Haptic Touch, things become a bit confusing and something as simple as moving and deleting apps in iOS 13 has become difficult.
The iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro are all about their improved camera performance. Apple has finally managed to catch up to the likes of the Pixel 3 and Galaxy Note 10+ in terms of camera performance with its iPhone 11 lineup. If you are a photographer though or know the technicalities of the photography world, you can extract even more from the iPhone 11’s camera by shooting photos in RAW.
If you are upgrading to the iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro from an iPhone 8, iPhone 7, or lower, you are going to take a bit of time to get used to the new gesture system. Coupled with the new navigation system, Apple has also changed the way how one closes apps on the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro from the app switcher.
One of the key new features of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro series is the improved camera. Apart from new and improved sensors and image processing, Apple has also added a Night mode to the Camera app of these phones thereby allowing them to take better photos in low-light scenarios. Wondering how to use the Night mode on your iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro? Follow this guide.
Apple is known to focus on privacy and security. With iOS 13, the company has introduced a number of new privacy-oriented features. One such feature is the ability to strip a photo of its location data before sharing it on the internet or mailing it to someone.
With the iPhone 11 Pro series, Apple has ditched 3D Touch and replaced it with Haptic Touch. The latter is essentially a sophisticated form of long press, while 3D Touch relied on special hardware to detect the amount of pressure being applied on the screen and then show the relevant options. 3D Touch is still found on iPhone 6s to iPhone XS Max though and with Haptic Touch-enabled, things get a bit confusing.
Upgraded to the iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro from the iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, or iPhone 8? You are likely going to struggle when you try to turn off the phone. While the new iPhones do come with a power button/Side key, you cannot simply long-press it to turn off iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max.
If you are upgrading to the iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro from the iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, or iPhone 8, you are likely going to find the lack of a battery indicator on the status bar a bit irritating. While the new iPhones come with improved battery life, that is not going to be enough for most people to not keep a tab on the battery life of their device.
