Cupertino, CA—Apple introduced the Apple iPhone 11, which features a dual-camera system and an intuitive camera experience. It also delivers the highest quality video in a smartphone as well as night mode for photos.
The iPhone 11 is powered by the A13 Bionic chip, developed to perform demanding tasks while getting through a day on a single charge. It also has improved water resistance.
“iPhone 11 is the next generation of iPhone, packed with great new capabilities in an incredible design, including new ultrawide and wide cameras for gorgeous videos and photos; the power and ease of use of iOS 13; and A13 Bionic—the fastest chip ever in a smartphone that quickly handles the tasks that matter most to people every day,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. In a choice of six colors, the iPhone 11 has a back design sculpted from a single piece of glass. Moreover, it features the toughest glass in a smartphone. It is also rated IP68 for water resistance up to 6.6 feet for 30 minutes and is protected against accidental spills from common liquids.
A 6.1-inch all-screen Liquid Retina display features wider color support and True Tone for a more natural viewing experience. Customers can interact with their apps with Haptic Touch. Integrated across iOS 13, it provides app shortcuts for everyday tasks from the home screen, including taking a selfie.
The iPhone 11’s updated TrueDepth camera introduces a new 12MP camera with a wider field of view to capture more in selfies. It also employs next-generation Smart HDR to enable more natural-looking photos. Moreover, selfie videos now record in 4K at up to 60 frames per sec as well as 120 fps slow-mo.
Apple iPhone 11 Dual-Camera System
The device introduces a dual-camera system with new ultrawide and wide cameras that are integrated into iOS 13. In addition, it supports 4K video with extended dynamic range for more highlight detail and video stabilization. With a wider field of view and larger focal plane, users can shoot more detailed action videos with the ultrawide camera.
For iPhone users, the ultrawide camera fundamentally changes the photography experience by capturing four times more scene. It is useful for taking landscape or architecture photos, as well as tight shots.
Moreover, the dual-camera system lets users zoom between each camera while its audio zoom function matches the audio to the video framing. With iOS 13, video-editing tools are also accessible. They provide the ability to rotate, crop, increase exposure and apply filters to videos within the new camera interface.
In addition, a new wide sensor with 100% focus pixels enables night mode. This mode delivers a significant improvement to photos captured in indoor and outdoor low-light environments. Furthermore, both cameras work together to enable portrait mode photos of people, pets and objects. Also, portrait lighting adjustments are made in the camera app to adjust the intensity of light on a subject. There is also a new high-key mono effect that creates a monochromatic look for portrait mode photos. Further, for the first time, users can record video without switching out of photo mode with QuickTake. They just hold the shutter button to start recording.
Finally, the iPhone 11 will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models. They will come in a choice of purple, green, yellow, black, white and red. Pricing starts at $699. Customers can also get the iPhone 11 for $16.62 a month or $399 with a trade-in from apple.com.
