AT A GLANCE
Apple in September 2019 unveiled the new iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max with triple-lens cameras, A13 chips, faster Face ID, Night Mode, shatter resistant glass, improved water resistance and more. iPhone 11 Pro starts at $999, iPhone 11 Pro Max starts at $1099.
Apple says that the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max have a new “Pro” moniker because the two devices are designed for users who want the very best smartphone that’s available.
Both new iPhones feature Super Retina XDR OLED displays, with the 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro offering a 2426 x 1125 resolution and the 6.5-inch iPhone offering a 2688 x 1242 resolution.
The new phones feature HDR support, a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and 800 nits max brightness (1200 for HDR). True Tone is included for matching the white balance of the display to the ambient lighting in the room to make it easier on the eyes, as is wide color for more vivid, true-to-life colors.
3D Touch has been eliminated in the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max, with Apple instead outfitting the new devices with a similar Haptic Touch feature. Haptic Touch is supported across iOS 13, but it lacks the pressure sensitivity of 3D Touch.
Design wise, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max look similar to the iPhone XS and XS Max, but come in textured matte finishes available in Gold, Space Gray, Silver, and a never-before-used Apple color: Midnight Green.
