Apple’s next generation of iPhones are here and were unveiled to the world at the Steve Jobs theatre in California on Tuesday 10th September.
Apple’s latest iPhone range showcases the powerful iPhone 11 as well as Apple’s first-ever Pro iPhone range which includes the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone Pro Max.
The newly announced iPhone 11 will sport a 6.1-inch LCD screen with True Tone display and will come in six colours, including black, green, gold, purple, red and silver.
The iPhone 11 has a dual camera, which includes a second camera featuring an ultra-wide lens as opposed to a telephoto lens as in past devices. Artificial intelligence capabilities in the camera will auto-adjust lighting and reduce noise, allowing users to take low light images and more detailed portrait photographs.
In addition, the iPhone 11 also features a front-facing portrait mode and slow-motion video capabilities in the front-facing camera, where Apple coined ‘slofies’ for slow-motion selfies.
The new device will sport Apple’s brand new A13 Bionic chip, the fastest CPU and GPU ever in a smartphone. These powerful new features give the iPhone 11 a longer battery life than last year’s XR – albeit by only the one hour.
iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max
Apple is following the likes of Huawei and Samsung with unveiling its first ever Pro range. The new iPhone 11 Pro is the smallest size in the 2019 line-up, with a screen size of 5.8 inches. The Pro Max, however, boasts a 6.5-inch screen, the largest device in Apple’s new iPhone range.
Both Pro devices have a brand-new OLED screen, offering a crisp, True Tone display and haptic touch. Apple has also introduced four new colours to this year’s range, including space grey, silver, gold and midnight green.
The powerful Pro range is being flaunted as ‘the most advanced and detailed iPhone yet’ with a three-lens ‘pro’ camera system, 12-megapixel telephotos lens and stunning OLED displays; offering users a whole new level of photography.
The iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max both boast three camera lenses allowing for more detail, smart lighting and wider shots, whilst videos made with the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max cameras will shoot in 4k resolution at 60 frames per second. The new multi-lens cameras also feature night mode, ultra-wide-angle lenses and slow-motion videos, similar to the iPhone 11.
Inside the Pro and Pro Max, users will find Apple’s next-generation A13 Bionic chip, like the iPhone 11. The Pro range is expected to be much more power-efficient than last year’s iPhone XS, promising up to five hours’ more battery life.
Apple also used the event to unveil its new seventh-generation iPad, launching the largest screen to date, with a 10.2-inch display. Apple’s Watch Series 5 was also revealed and expands upon its existing capabilities. The revived series features a new always-on display that can drop to as low as 1Hz refresh to save power, as well as a compass and optimised watch faces.
