Apple finally unveiled the latest iPhone models today during its annual iPhone event. Emanating from the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, attendees were treated to the latest offerings from the iPhone lineup set to release on September 20th. The iPhone 11 is the most budget-friendly of the new releases and is essentially a modest upgrade to the wildly popular iPhone XR.
For starters, the new phone will retain almost the same exact display from last year. The iPhone 11 will have a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display, 12MP True Depth front camera, 12MP wide and ultra-wide rear cameras, and a 2,942 mAh battery. The iPhone 11 will also boast Apple’s newest A13 processor, which Apple is calling their “most powerful chip yet.”
The A13 is not just another pretty face though, as Apple is also claiming it will be more powerful and use less energy than the A12 Bionic did. The iPhone 11 is also getting a second ultra-wide camera on the back, bringing the camera total to three. Three cameras on a phone in 2019 has pretty much become the standard, but leave it to Apple to try to up the ante just a bit more. You can now record 4K video in up to 60 FPS on all cameras on the iPhone 11.
Interestingly enough, the iPhone 11 will release at a lower price point than the XR did just a year ago. Pricing will start at $699 for the 64GB model, down $50 from the XR from last year. The iPhone 11 will be available in 6 colors (Red, Black, White, Yellow, Green, and Purple), and will be available for preorder on Friday, September 13th at 5 AM PST (8/EST).
