Apple iPhone 11
The iPhone 11 has a dual-camera system with a new Night mode for photos in low light.
It’s powered by the A13 Bionic chip, has an 18-hour battery and has improved water resistance with an IP68 rating which means it can survive down to 2 metres for up to 30 minutes.

The back of the iPhone 11 is milled and sculpted from a single piece of glass which Apple claims is the toughest glass in a smartphone to date.
Apple has used a 6.1-inch all-screen Liquid Retina display with wide colour support and True Tone. Meanwhile, the iOS 13 will enable app shortcuts for everyday tasks straight from the Home screen, including taking a selfie in Camera, checking an appointment in Calendar or previewing email within Mail with just a press.
A13 Bionic — Fastest Chip in a Smartphone
Thanks to the A13 Bionic chip, the iPhone 11 is up to 20% than the previous incarnation. The new chip can also use machine learning, and the Neural Engine for real-time photo and video analysis, along with Machine Learning Accelerators that enable the CPU to deliver more than 1 trillion operations per second.
New Dual-Camera System
The Apple iPhone 11 introduces a dual-camera system with new Ultra Wide and Wide cameras. Both are 4K-enabled and capture video with extended dynamic range.
The dual-camera system lets users switch/zoom between each camera while the Audio Zoom matches the audio to the video framing. They also enable Portrait mode for better people and pet photos with attractive bokeh.
iOS 13 also features powerful video editing tools are accessible to everyone with the ability to rotate, crop, increase exposure and apply filters to videos instantly all within the new, easy-to-use Camera interface.
A new Wide sensor with 100% Focus Pixels also enables Night mode, for better low-light images with more natural colour and reduced noise.
Next-generation Smart HDR uses advanced machine learning to capture more natural-looking images with beautiful highlight and shadow detail on the subject and in the background. Deep Fusion, coming later this autumn, uses advanced machine learning to do pixel-by-pixel processing of photos, optimising for texture, details and noise in every part of the photo.
For the first time, users can easily record video without switching out of Photo mode with QuickTake by simply holding the shutter button to start recording.
The updated TrueDepth camera introduces a new 12MP camera with a wider field of view to capture more in selfies, and next-generation Smart HDR enables more natural-looking photos. Expressive selfie videos take on a whole new look on the TrueDepth camera, now recording 4K video at up to 60 fps and 120 fps slo-mo.
The new Apple-designed U1 chip uses Ultra Wideband technology, the first ever in a smartphone, for spatial awareness. With iOS 13.1 coming on September 30, AirDrop gets even better with directionally aware suggestions.
Face ID, the most secure facial authentication in a smartphone, gets up to 30% faster and easier to use with improved performance at varying distances and support for more angles.
Spatial audio provides an immersive surround sound experience and Dolby Atmos delivers powerful, moving audio to iPhone 11.
Gigabit-class LTE and Wi-Fi 6 allow for even faster download speeds4 and Dual SIM with eSIM.5
iOS 13 delivers a seamless experience with heightened software and hardware integration. It also introduces Dark Mode, a more private way to sign in to apps and websites with Sign In with Apple, and an new Maps experience.6
With advanced Camera and Photos features, photo editing is more comprehensive and intuitive with powerful new tools that now extend to video editing. Portrait Lighting adjustments can be made right in the Camera app to adjust the intensity of light on a subject, and a new High-Key Mono effect creates a beautiful, monochromatic look for Portrait mode photos.
Apple iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max
Apple today announced a new pro line for iPhone with advanced performance. These phones feature the new Super Retina XDR display which is the brightest display ever on an iPhone and the A13 Bionic chip.

Fastest Performance with the Best Battery Life
A13 Bionic, the fastest chip ever in a smartphone, provides unparalleled performance for every task iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max handle and features up to 20 percent faster CPU and GPU than A12. A13 Bionic is built for machine learning, with a faster Neural Engine for real-time photo and video analysis, and new Machine Learning Accelerators that allow the CPU to deliver more than 1 trillion operations per second. Together, A13 Bionic and iOS 13 make up the best machine learning platform in a smartphone.
All of this compute, graphics and ML performance is delivered while still enabling an unprecedented leap in battery life, with iPhone 11 Pro offering up to four more hours of battery life in a day than iPhone Xs, and iPhone 11 Pro Max offering up to five hours more than iPhone Xs Max.
