Apple has finally revealed the iPhone 11 line-up, and as expected, the three models are the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. There aren’t many surprises here, although as is usually the case, the rumor mill didn’t get everything exactly right. For example, that “Aura” color that was supposedly coming didn’t make an appearance. Here are the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max specs.
Affordable iPhone 11
The iPhone 11 is the more affordable of the three new models with a starting price of $700. As expected, it features a dual-lens camera with 12-megapixel wide and ultra-wide lenses on the back. The selfie camera has been upgraded to a 12-megapixel lens from 7-megapixels in last year’s iPhone XR. The selfie camera also offers faster unlocking via Face ID and 4K and slow-motion video support. The rear-facing camera can also shoot in 4K and gets a new night mode. The camera also features Audio Zoom, which is designed to match the audio to the video framing
The iPhone 11 sports a 6.1-inch LCD and is available in black, white, yellow, green, purple and red. The back is glass and has been made from a single piece of “the toughest glass ever in a smartphone.” The battery life has also been extended by another hour, and the device has a new A13 Bionic chip for improved performance. The A13 chip is designed specifically for machine learning.

iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max specs
Apple made sure to highlight the more expensive iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max even more than the base model. The prices of the phones start at $1,000 and $1,100, respectively.
Perhaps the biggest difference between the base LCD model and the two higher-end models is the camera. The rear-facing camera on the more expensive models has three lenses with 4K optical zoom. The lenses are wide, ultra-wide and telephoto lenses. The iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max will also have a new Deep Fusion camera feature, which combines nine images to reduce noise and improve details in images. However, this feature won’t be available at launch. It will be rolled out later.
The 11 Pro has a 5.8-inch OLED display, while the 11 Pro Max has a massive 6.5-inch OLED screen. The Super Retina XDR display supports HDR 10. Like the base model, both phones feather faster unlocking with Face ID and 4K video support on both cameras. The selfie camera also supports slow-motion video. The Pro adds four hours to the battery life of the XS, while the Pro Max adds five more hours to the life of the XS Max. The iPhone 11 Pro also has the A13 chip, and Apple thoughts it as “the best machine-learning platform in any smartphone.
The iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are available in midnight green, gold, silver and space grey. The phones come in a textured matte finish, and Apple said their glass back is “the toughest glass ever in a smartphone.” The phones also come with a fast charging adaptor in the box. The iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max also feature an IP68 rating for water resistance, meaning they can withstand a dunking in up to 4 meters of water for up to 30 minutes. They also have protection against “everyday spills” such as coffee or soda.
The iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max will be available in 64 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB memory options. You can read more about the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro Max specs here.
