Here’s what you need to know about the new iPhone 11
Apple unveiled not just two, but three models of the much-anticipated iPhone 11 at its big launch in California: the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Max. Of the new features in the 11, the camera shines the brightest.
The iPhone 11 stays faithful to the iPhone X’s form factor: a huge display with a notch at the front. In terms of design, the biggest change Apple brings to the 11 series is the rear camera system, which is now fitted in a tile. The 11 sports a dual camera setup while the 11 Max and 11 Max Pro carry a triple camera system.
Apple also boasts powerful performance in the 11 courtesy of its A13 Bionic processor, which the company calls the “fastest CPU and GPU in a smartphone.” The new phones will run on the latest iOS 13.
