Apple has announced today that it will be releasing three new iPhones: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The Iphone 11 is an upgrade on the Iphone Xr, and will be available with 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.
It will also come with a rear-facing, 12-megapixel wide-angle camera; a feature which was noticeably absent from the Xr.
The screens will be of size 6.1-inch, 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch for the 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max respectively.
Whereas the 11 will feature a less expensive, LCD screen; the Pro and Pro Max will include a brighter OLED screen.
Apple calls this OLED screen a “Super Retina XDR” and claims that it is 15% more efficient with the “toughest glass in a smartphone.”
The most noticeable addition to the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max is the tri-camera setup which has a 120-degree field of view and is able to capture up to 40% more light.
The 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max will be available in capacity sizes 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.
All three phones can shoot both 4K and slow-motion videos; and will feature Apple’s A13 Bionic chip which is faster and more efficient.
These efficiency improvements will allow for an additional 1 hour, 4 hours and 5 hours of battery life for the 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max respectively.
Although the models will be available for pre-order on Friday in overseas markets, it is not clear when it will be available in South Africa.
However, given the current prices of Apple’s high-end phones, the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max is likely to cost between R20 000 and R30 000, whereas the 11 will likely cost between R14 00 and R18 000.
