The iPhone 11 is a 13-generation iPhone that was announced by Apple on September 10, 2019 at their annual "September Event" alongside the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max. The device is the succeesor to the iPhone XR.
The iPhone 11 uses the 13th generation of Apple's custom chipset called the Apple A13 Bionic. As of the release date, Apple claimed Apple claimed that this chipset contained the fastest CPU and GPU available in a smartphone.
The iPhone 11 was released with iOS 13 on September 20, 2019.
Apple claimed the phone comes with "enhanced Face ID", with a wider viewing angle.
The phone was produced in 64GB, 128GB or 256GB configurations.
For the first time, Apple has provided a dual lens camera on the base iPhone model, and has indicated that photography improvements are a main feature across the entire 2019 product line.
Along with the standard lens, the iPhone 11 comes with a 12MP wide camera that uses a 26mm lens, and a 12MP ultra-wide camera with a field of view of 120 degrees.
The camera app has improvements in Night Mode for low light conditions, and it is enabled by default. The software attempts to reduce low-light image noise, and improves brightness and contrast. Apple believes that with the new configuration, the time required to take a low-light photo should be improved by three times that of the XR.
The iPhone 11 supports 4K video recording, plus the regular time-lapse and slo-mo video modes. Image stabilization is improved, and it includes 0.5x zoom for realistic wide-angle shots.
On the front, the iPhone 11 has a 12MP TrueDepth selfie camera, allowing you to rotate the phone to take wider images to make up for the lack of a front-facing wide-angle lens. This camera supports the same 4K video recording as the rear camera.
