Apple has always been known to set the bar for innovation in the technology industry. And the company’s latest iPhone, the iPhone 11 Pro, has once again proven that Apple is committed to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with their phones.
The iPhone 11 Pro is the successor to last year’s iPhone XS, and although it may not look much different on the surface, there have been some major improvements under the hood. So, what sets the iPhone 11 Pro apart from its predecessor? Here’s a closer look.
At first glance, the iPhone 11 Pro looks quite similar to the iPhone XS. It has the same stainless steel frame, glass back, and rounded corners. However, there are some subtle design changes that set it apart from its predecessor. The most noticeable of these changes is the camera bump on the back of the phone, which is significantly larger than the one on the XS. This is because the iPhone 11 Pro now has a triple-lens camera system, which we’ll discuss in more detail later.
Another design change is the color options. The iPhone 11 Pro is available in Space Gray, Silver, Gold, and a new color called Midnight Green, which is a darker, more muted green than the bright green of last year’s iPhone XR.
The display on the iPhone 11 Pro is the same size and resolution as the one on the iPhone XS (5.8 inches and 2436 x 1125 pixels), but Apple has made some improvements that make it even better. First of all, it’s now brighter – up to 800 nits – which means you’ll be able to see your screen more clearly even in bright sunlight. Secondly, it now supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision, which means you’ll be able to watch HDR content from services like Netflix and Apple TV+.
One new feature that’s exclusive to the iPhone 11 Pro is the “Super Retina XDR” display. This is the marketing term Apple is using to describe the display’s improved contrast ratio and color accuracy. In layman’s terms, it means that blacks will look even blacker and colors will look even more vibrant.
The camera is arguably the most exciting part of the iPhone 11 Pro. As mentioned earlier, it now has a triple-lens camera system, which consists of a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens. This means you’ll now be able to take photos with a wider field of view, and zoom in or out without sacrificing quality. The camera also features a new Night mode, which uses intelligent software and a longer exposure time to capture better photos in low-light conditions.
One of the more interesting new features of the camera is something Apple is calling “Deep Fusion”. This is a new image processing system that uses machine learning to analyze multiple images and create a final photo with better detail and less noise. This feature is not yet available but will be coming in a future software update.
The iPhone 11 Pro is powered by Apple’s latest A13 Bionic chip, which is the fastest processor ever in a smartphone. According to Apple, the A13 Bionic is up to 20% faster than the A12 Bionic (which powers the iPhone XS), and is also more energy-efficient.
Another area where the iPhone 11 Pro has seen significant improvements is in battery life. Apple claims that the iPhone 11 Pro will last up to 4 hours longer than the iPhone XS, which is a pretty significant increase. This is thanks in part to the more energy-efficient A13 Bionic chip, as well as improvements to the operating system.
Overall, the iPhone 11 Pro is a worthy successor to the iPhone XS. While it may not look all that different on the surface, the improvements in the camera, display, performance, and battery life make it a compelling upgrade for anyone in the market for a new phone. The price may be steep, with the starting price at $999, but for those willing to spend the money, the iPhone 11 Pro is definitely worth considering.
