The iPhone 11 is a smartphone designed, developed and marketed by Apple Inc. It is the thirteenth generation lower-priced iPhone, succeeding the iPhone XR. It was unveiled on September 10, 2019, alongside the higher-end iPhone 11 Pro flagship at the Steve Jobs Theater in the Apple Park, Cupertino by Apple CEO Tim Cook, with pre-orders beginning on September 13, 2019, with an official release on September 20, 2019, one day after the scheduled release of iOS 13.
The newly introduced changes compared with the iPhone XR are the Apple A13 Bionic chip, and an ultra wide dual camera system. While the iPhone 11 Pro comes with an 18W Lightning to USB-C fast charger, the iPhone 11 comes with the same 5W charger found on previous iPhones, even though both models can utilize this faster charger.
Apple iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max: Specifications
When it comes to the issue of prices, it’s no surprise that all three phones aren’t identical when it comes to internal specifications. There are barely differences between each version.

|Processor||A13 Bionic chip||A13 Bionic chip||A13 Bionic chip|
|Display||6.1in Liquid Retina HD 1,792 x 828 LCD||5.8in Super Retina XDR 2,436 x 1,125 OLED||6.5in Super Retina XDR 2,688 x 1,242 OLED|

|Front camera||12MP (f/2.2)||12MP (f/2.2)||12MP (f/2.2)|
All three phones are powered by Apple’s latest homebrew processor, the A13 Bionic. Not much is known about the specifics just yet, although Apple claims that this new chipset is faster than anything the firm has ever produced and outperforms practically everything else on the market. All three phones use the same 12-megapixel selfie camera, too.
The similarities end there, however. The iPhone 11 has the smallest battery of the three and includes 4GB of RAM rather than 6GB. It also only has a dual-camera arrangement on the back of the phone, lacking the telephoto zoom lens of the Pro and Pro Max. Likewise, the resolution is smaller on the regular iPhone 11, and it doesn’t use a fancy OLED panel either.
Apple iPhone 11, Pro and Pro Max: Design and key features
Apart from the difference in sizes, and the absence of the third camera compared to iPhone 11, the three phones look alike. They still have a screen-dominating front, with a wide notch eating its way into the top of the display. All three iPhones are still powered by Apple’s Lightning connector and support wireless charging to the Qi standard.
Talking about WiFi 6, both iPhone 11, Pro and Pro Max have WiFi 6 support for the very first time, which is the latest standard for wireless networking. The introduction of WiFi 6, there is hope of faster transfer speeds and more reliable connections. All of the phones are IP68-rated for dust- and water-resistance.
It is aqually important to bring to your notice that all three of the latest iPhones arrive with Apple’s most up to date version of its mobile operating system, iOS 13. The newest version of iOS adds a new dark mode, FaceTime improvements and a new swipe-to-type keyboard.
