The Apple iPhone 11 succeeds the iPhone XR, and it features a 6.1-inch LCD display that Apple calls a "Liquid Retina HD Display." It features a 1792 x 828 resolution at 326ppi, a 1400:1 contrast ratio, 625 nits’ max brightness, True Tone support for adjusting the white balance to the ambient lighting, and wide colour support for true-to-life colours. The iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro also support Haptic Touch, with Apple eliminating 3D Touch across the iPhone line-up.
Apple says it's made from the toughest glass ever in a smartphone and offers improved water resistance, boosting overall durability. Spatial audio offers a more immersive sound experience, and Dolby Atmos is supported.
What are its most impressive new features?
The camera system sets the iPhone 11 apart from the XR, with Apple introducing a dual-lens camera that's an improvement over the prior single-lens camera. The camera setup features a standard wide-angle camera and a new ultra-wide-angle camera with a 120-degree field of view.
Apple has added a new Night mode that's designed to use the iPhone's processing capabilities and the new wide camera sensor to capture crisp, clear, bright photos even in very low lighting conditions, like the Night Sight mode on Google Pixel devices.
Next-generation Smart HDR takes advantage of machine learning to capture more natural-looking images with improved highlight and shadow detail, and in iOS 13.2, Apple is introducing a Deep Fusion feature that uses advanced machine learning techniques for pixel-by-pixel processing of photos, optimizing for texture, details, and noise. All in all, the iPhone 11 offers much improved photographic capabilities over the XR.
4K Quality Camera
4K video recording with extended dynamic range is available at 24, 30, or 60fps, and both cameras in the iPhone 11 can be used for recording video, with live swapping available using a simple tap. A QuickTake video mode lets you hold down on the shutter button in the Camera app to automatically record video with subject tracking, and an Audio Zoom feature matches the audio to the video framing for more dynamic sound.
