This story is part of the our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.
Apple refreshed its line of iPhones for 2019 at aannouncing the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Phones start at $ 699, $ 999 and $ 1,099, respectively – probably a surprising price in a world where we pay $ 1,000 for an iPhone. The new iPhones get a fresh palette of colors, longer battery life and an inside that promises faster performance. But more than any other feature, it is the that take on the headlining role. There are and two on the back of the iPhone 11. See below for our first hand impressions.
The new crop of iPhones may wear different colors, but in terms of overall design, they look amazing last yeariPhone XS Max and iPhone XR – notch and all.
The three cameras behind the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max are Apple's biggest threats in a series that. For many people, the iPhone represents the gold standard for smartphone design and cutting features like Face Unlock, which Apple says is faster now than ever before. But despite the bread-and-butter features, such as support for the Wi-Fi 6, the iPhone 11 trio failed to push the envelope, relying instead on big camera changes and smaller refinements to maintain the momentum.
No support for 5G carriers (we expect to arrive in 2020), and none of the reverse wireless charging has been reported to charge Apple AirPods, Apple Watch and other phones behind the iPhone 11 – as you can inand .
such as making new iPhone 11 compatible with Apple Pencil, and a USB-C port whispered to replace Lightning Connection.
Without a powerful suite of new features to lure consumers, Apple has been working for them as it goes into hyper-competitive holiday season and 2020. The phone. Competitors like Samsung, Google and Huawei are pulling on camera and feature tools. And then there is the question of 5G – iPhone users will have to wait a whole year unless everyone surprises us with a special event before September 2020.
Thebeginning Friday, Sept. 13 and 5 am PT. They arrived in-store on September 20. Apple will continue to sell the iPhone XR for $ 599 and the iPhone 8 for $ 449.
For now, look at all that is important to offer with the new iPhones. You can get everything else that Apple announced here fromto the brand new . Here's how to compare the .
We tested the iPhone 11 phones and here is what we think
CNET went hands-on with the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Max. The colors and finishes look and feel more refined – and less like finger magnets – than last year's phones, especially compared to the iPhone XR, which is the equivalent of the iPhone this year 11.  The most popular is the camera, and the telephoto lens especially because it feels like the main difference between the iPhone 11 and the far pricier 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. All three phones share most of the other features, at least we can tell with our short hands on time on the phone.
The newfor front-facing cameras is fun, but not a must-have feature by any means. However, we wouldn't be surprised if other phone makers cribbed this one.
Two iPhone 11 Pro phones get a new matte finish and steel case that looks stunning, and feels dense. Maybe you think of it as gravitas. We think it's pretty heavy. The pictures do not do the midnight green shade of justice. We chalk up as fans. We're not sure the surcharge from the regular iPhone 11 to 11 Pro is worth the finish alone, but having this telephoto lens will help round out the feature set.
Changing the three camera lenses to the Pro and Pro Max feels seamless, and a new "Haptic Touch" feedback used by Apple instead of 3D Touch is a bit easy to invite in sharp new displays. – Just hold your finger.
Rear camera: Wide, ultrawide, telephoto
The iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are all about the camera. Competing brands are no stranger to the three-camera system (or even four!), But it marks Apple's first time pairing a wide-angle lens with both telephoto and angle sensors. of ultrawide.
We're working on a deep dive for you soon, but what you really need to know is that Apple wants to make it easy for you to switch from the basic 12 lens megapixel camera to the 13-megapixel ultrawide – angle lens on the 12-megapixel telephoto sensor, which you make from the main camera screen.
Using this type of system on other phones, such as theand for example, can make images more atmospheric or noteworthy – especially the scene shot – when taken with an ultrawide lens. Apple said it would fit four times the amount of views compared to the main camera.
On the flip side, a telephoto shot can make the difference between grabbing your picture or not if you're too far to actually see the face. or the detail you're trying to get because you're just so far away. A concert, a cornice in a historic building, a celebrity behind a velvet rope. That kind of thing. Apple has said it will deliver a total of 4x optical zoom through its camera system, though the telephoto lens is specified for 2x optical zoom.
The focused night mode is another feature that has become a feature based on premium phones. It aims to make the details brighter and reduce noise in low-light conditions.
But the most interesting feature, which we didn't see at the launch of the iPhone 11 (it will come in all three phones) iswhich takes the best features from nine different images that the iPhone automatically takes. It uses machine learning to combine these different shots in one second, then serves up a compilation with sharper details than you would have if you took it yourself. That's the theory, anyway.
The last feature we couldn't wait to try was the slow motion video for the camera front, but maybe that's just to say we got "". We're not sure if we want to love it or hate to love it, but yes, one of those.
