The long-awaited Apple products, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Max are a few hours away from hitting the market. But before you go ahead and pre-order one of these devices, you need to be equipped with all the information about their features and their shortcomings.
We have been able to gather valuable information about these three devices, and in this article, we will be sharing with you all that we found.
We will cover everything from the price, the Max Steel casting, cameras, and what the much talked about midnight green colour looks like in reality.
These new Apple mobile devices come with a fresh palette of colours, stronger and longer battery life, and of course, a fantastic A13 bionic processor inside of them that is designed to provide faster performance.
But apart from all of that, there are other features such as the software, hardware, and camera that play Major roles in making these devices what they are.
Please note that we are not providing any final buying advise as we are yet to fully testes devices. Most notably, the claims made by Apple on the battery life.
If you have seen images of the new iPhone 11 Pro and pro-Max devices, you will notice three cameras on the back. This design is considered to be the most significant risk that Apple has taken in a series that has successfully played it safe this year.
For a lot of smartphone lovers, iPhone is seen as the gold standard for smart mobile phone designs and also cutting Edge technologies such as the face ID unlocking which Apple now claims is faster in this devices than ever before.
But regardless of the exciting features such as support for Wi-Fi 6, the iPhone 11 series has not impressed us so much as it has relied instead on the profound Camera change, and of course, smaller refinements to keep up the momentum
We expected a 5G carrier support and a reverse wireless charging that has been rumoured to charge Apple Watch, Apple airpods, and some other devices that are older than the iPhone 11 such as the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 smartphones. However, none of those came through with these phones.
Apple also disappointed those of us who expected some Rumoured features such as compatibility between the iPhone 11 and apple pencil, as well as a USB-C port that was rumoured to replace the lightning connection. One thing we can easily assume at this point is that the best thing about the iPhone 11 trio is its amazingly low price.
Without rolling out new features to attract iPhone buyers to the iPhone 11 devices, Apple may have so much work to do in the coming year if they must remain the competition in the smartphone market.
At present, sales of iPhones are down as competitors such as Google, Huawei, and Samsung are constantly upgrading on their cameras and rolling out new amazing features that are fast stealing their tension of smartphone love is away from Apple products.
And also, there is the issue of 5G which most people anticipated but will be disappointed about, unless of course, Apple decides to do something amazing before September 2020 as a compensation for the shortcoming of the iPhone 11 trio.
The iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max will be available on preorder beginning from Friday, the 13th of Sept. at 5 a.m. PT. If you want to purchase from stores; instead, they arrive in-store on the 20th of Sept., Apple will not stop selling the iPhone XR device for $599 and the iPhone 8 device for $449.
We’ve seen the iPhone 11 devices and here’s what we think
First of all, it Triggers Trypophobia and in terms of the overall design of all three iPhone 11 devices, they look a lot like the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR devices. We like the colour finished as they look more classy and refined.
The two iPhone 11 pro devices come with a new matte finish and a fantastic Steelcase that feels tense and looks quite stunning. These looks may be one thing to attract people to these devices.
You’ve been told that the midnight green shade of the new iPhone 11 devices is ugly, but trust that photos do not represent them as they are. I believe that this midnight green is what helps these phones stand out and is more beautiful when you see it in person.
We cannot say that the surcharge for the iPhone 11 Pro and the regular iPhone 11 are worth it for only these new finishes, but what we think is that the telephoto lenses helps to balance out the features set for the more expensive models.
One thing that stands out the most about the iPhone 11 devices are the cameras and also the telephoto lens. That is primarily because it seems to be the significant difference between the more expensive iPhone 11 Pro and pro-Max, and the regular iPhone 11 device. All three devices share a majority of the same features
For people who like to have fun making videos, the new slow-motion video mode added to the front-facing camera will be so much fun to use. However, it is not a must-have feature, plus it is not going to be a shocker to see the slow-motion video mode in Android phones anytime soon
It is straightforward to swap among the three camera lenses provided on the iPhone XI Pro and pro-Max. And also, the new Haptic touch feedback that is featured on these devices instead of the 3D touch is quite unusual on the brand new Sharp display; you only need to hold down your finger.
Rear cameras: Wide, ultrawide, telephoto
To be honest, the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are focused on the camera. Competing Chinese brands are not out of the equation when it comes to the three or four-camera system, but this release marks Apple’s first time of pairing a wide-angle lens with both ultrawide-angle and telephoto sensors.
One of the things you must know about the cameras is that Apple has it in mind to make it seamless for you to switch between all three cameras.
That is from the primary 12-megapixel camera lens to the 12-megapixel telephoto sensor, and the 13-megapixel an ultra-wide-angle lens and you can do the switch from the main camera screen.
Having tried out this kind of camera system on other smartphones such as the Galaxy Note 10 and the Huawei p30 Pro, we can tell you that your pictures will come out more atmospheric and striking especially when they are landscape shots, and they are taken with an ultra-wide lens.
According to Apple, it is supposed to fit in four times the amount of scenery when compared to the primary camera.
On the other hand, a telephoto shot may be beneficial when you consider whether or not to take a shot when you find yourself too far to see the face, or details of what you are trying to capture.
For every creative shot you plan to take like during a concert, or a picture of a celebrity behind a curtain, it would be perfect using the telephoto shot.
According to claims by Apple, it should provide a 4x optical zoom via its camera system, even though the specs for the telephoto lens says 2x optical zoom.
Dedicated night mode is one other thing that has become a base feature in premium phones. It is intended to create brighter details and reduce noise in conditions with low-light.
