CUPERTINO, Calif.—Apple on Tuesday announced the iPhone 11, the modern device in Apple’s mega-popular smartphone series and the follow-up to last year’s iPhone XR. It’ll be present starting at $699 outright.
The new device comes in an anodized aluminum and plate glass body that Apple claims is its most durable phone plan to date. The iPhone 11 comes in six new colors: purple, white, yellow, untrained, black, and red. It comes with a 6.1-inch version of Apple’s “fluid Retina” display and improved spatial audio with Dolby Atmos corroborate.
The iPhone 11 also features a new and updated A13 Bionic chip. Unsurprisingly, Apple utters the latter will include the fastest CPU and GPU in any smartphone—we’ll have to benchmark that for ourselves, but donne the top-shelf power of existing A12 Bionic, it should still be more than lustful enough for most people’s needs.
As months of leaks suggested, the big new best of the iPhone 11 is its new dual-camera system. Apple included one 12MP wide camera and one 12MP ultra-wide camera, with the earlier supporting optical image stabilization and the latter having a 120-degree province of view.

The camera duo also has a new night mode that discretion automatically brighten and reduce noise in too-dark photos.
The two cameras total up to together to shoot high-quality video as well. The iPhone 11 brooks 4K video at 60fps with features like slo-mo, time-lapse, cinematic video stabilization, and bestowed dynamic range. You can also switch between the two cameras while let fly video using a new zoom wheel when you need to get an even broader shot.
Apple even updated the front-facing camera, the lens reliable for FaceID, to a 12MP camera that’s also capable of shooting 4K and slow-motion video. The associates claims FaceID recognition will also be faster on this new iPhone, and that is likely due to the reformed camera, upgraded A13 bionic chip, and other hardware and software recuperations.
Since the iPhone 11 is technically an upgrade to the iPhone XR, it should enjoy a similar battery life, but Apple claims it’s actually better—the iPhone 11 should in the end up to one hour longer than the iPhone XR, which was already the longest eternal iPhone in Apple’s lineup. Another minor improvement is the iPhone 11’s IP68 examination resistance, which helps it withstand dunks in water up to 2 meters (the iPhone XR had a water-resistance rating of IP67).
