Apple has finally introduced the next iPhone series. It consists of three models: the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The company is moving quickly on stage, announcing detail after detail, so we will live-update this piece until Apple is done. It appears to first be announcing a successor to last year’s iPhone XR model. Simply called iPhone 11, it features a 6.1-inch LCD display and a design that’s very similar to last year’s model, complete with a notch to house the Face ID camera.
Apple is also introducing new colour options. You will be able to buy the “all-new” iPhone 11 in purple, white, green, yellow, black, or red. It starts at $699 in the US – about $50 less than the price of the iPhone XR. A release date isn’t known yet.
The company really focused on camera upgrades, highlighting the phone’s dual-camera system with an ultra-wide camera that supports two-times optical zoom. For comparison, the iPhone XR had a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera. As for the front-facing camera, it’s a 12-megapixel Truedepth wide-angle sensor that can rotate for landscape shots and supports 4K/60 video and slow-mo.
As for photography updates, there’s a new mono portrait effect, and portrait mode will now work on pets. Apple also announced a Night mode to improve night shots. It talked about video updates, too, saying you can now tap to switch between the ultra-wide camera and regular camera.
Lastly, the new iPhone 11 features Apple’s latest A13 Bionic processor, which Apple, of course, called the “fastest CPU in a smartphone”. It also brings an additional hour of battery life, an “enhanced Face ID” that’s supposed to be speedier, and a IP68 water-resistance rating.
Apple is now on stage at the Steve Jobs Theatre in Apple Park, where it is announcing its annual update to the iPhone. To watch the entire event live, and to read a round-up of everything we expect from Apple, go here:
