The iPhone 11 is finally here – this is what we know about it
Apple has just announced the iPhone 11 at its big iPhone launch event in San Francisco, and we’ve got the first details of the new phone right here.
Below we’ve listed all the key specs and features of the new iPhone as we’ve learnt them, but if you want to read about everything Apple’s unveiled you may want to follow along with our iPhone 11 launch event liveblog.
The iPhone 11 arrives alongside the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, which are Apple’s top-end handsets this year. The iPhone 11 is designed as a sequel to the iPhone XR.
The new iPhone 11 has just been confirmed by Apple on stage, so we’re putting all the information here as we learn it. We’ll also have our hands-on review of the iPhone 11 up soon, along with our first impressions of the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
How to Pre-order:
The iPhone 11 starts at $699 / £729 / AU$1,199, which is a touch cheaper than the iPhone XR was at launch.
You can pre-order the iPhone 11 from September 13, and it’ll ship (or you can buy it for real) from September 20. Most networks in most countries will offer the device, as it’s far from an exclusive handset.
If you’re in the UK and primed to purchase the new iPhone on release, you can register your interest with certain retailers so that you’ll be the first to hear about their best prices. Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse both have such pre-registration pages, while Mobiles.co.uk will give you £30 cashback if you pre-register with them and then go on to purchase the phone.
Check out the Specs:
The iPhone 11 packs an A13 Bionic CPU. It entered production in May, according to Bloomberg and it keeps the same 7nm architecture as before. Apple said during its demos that this was the fastest chip on the market both in terms of performance and graphics.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reckons the iPhone 11 packs 4GB of RAM − just like the iPhone XS − but iOS optimisation makes the most of what seems to be a relatively stingy amount of memory in comparison to competitors, which increasingly pack in up to 12GB of memory.
As usual, Apple didn’t mention RAM at all on stage, so we’ll have to wait for a teardown to know more.
iOS 13 will ship on the new iPhone 11 and this brings highly-requested features like a system-wide dark mode, improved mapping service and more.
The iPhone 11 Camera:
There’s a big focus on the camera this year, and that’s because it’s a dual lens sensor, for the first time on the cheaper iPhone.
There’s a 12MP wide camera with a 26mm lens, and that’s paired with a 12MP ultra-wide camera. That second snapper has 120 degree field of view.
Night Mode has returned for low light conditions, and it comes turned on automatically on the iPhone 11. It’s a similar affair to Google’s Night Sight on Pixel phones, and the on-stage example seemed quite impressive.
The iPhone 11 – 5G, battery life and USB-C
If you were waiting to pick up the iPhone 11 in the hope it would ditch Lightning, we’ve got some bad news. Even though some early rumours had suggested Apple would drop its proprietary port for the common USB-C standard, that hasn’t happened.
The iPhone 11 is capable of Qi wireless charging, but it is still packaged with the puny 5W charger that iPhones have used for a decade now. The premium Pro and Pro Max models finally come with an 18W charger as standard, but iPhone 11 customers will have to shell out on a brand new charger straight away to get decent charging speeds.
5G connectivity isn’t supported by any models in the new range, which is a bit of a shame considering how impressive we’ve been by 5G in the UK so far.
While mobile connectivity might not be the fastest around, the iPhone 11 has super-fast Wi-Fi. The latest Wi-Fi 802.11 ax standard, more commonly known as Wi-Fi 6, brings with it up to a 4x performance boost in crowded areas and up to 40% higher data speeds.
