Truth be told, the real start of the show has to be the iPhone 11’s processor. This new smartphone superstar is powered by Apple’s new A13 Bionic chip, which outperforms last year’s iPhone XR as well as the Samsung S10+ that was received earlier this year with equal fanfare. When they introduced the iPhone 11 Pro, Apple told us to expect a 20% improvement in the performance of the CPU, GPU, and neural processor contained in the A13 Bionic. The A13 processor delivers a powerful and fluid experience, while being kind to your battery life.
And the iPhone 11 makes terrific use of this powerhouse processing chip. Apple’s new smartphone comes equipped with Dolby Atmos audio technology, giving you a whole new take on an immersive experience. This sound quality is beautifully complemented by the iPhone 11’s eye-popping, liquid retina LCD display. The screen automatically adjusts its white balance to match the colour temperature of the light around you. On iPhone 11 Pro, Super Retina XDR display that is brighter in sunlight. Plus its high-contrast ratio makes it ideal for HDR movies and HDR photos. The screens of all iPhone 11 models are wonderfully responsive, activating when you tap the screen or raise your phone to look at it.
Like Huawei boasted about the durability of its foldable smartphone, Apple is claiming the iPhone 11 is fitted with the toughest glass in a smartphone, which is strengthened through a dual ion-exchange process. Given iPhones’ track record with screen durability, I doubt anyone is going to put this claim to the test anytime soon. In other exciting spec news, the iPhone 11 was designed to be water resistant up to 2 metres for up to 30 minutes (double the depth of iPhone XR), while the iPhone 11 Pro (and iPhone 11 Pro Max) is water resistant to 4 metres for up to 30 minutes – now that’s deep!
The iPhone 11 is available in six colours (black, white, red, purple, green, and yellow) and the phone’s casing is reinforced with an anodised, aluminium finish, which Apple claims is more durable.
With it’s gorgeous, sizeable display, the iPhone 11 makes for an impressive gaming smartphone in its own right (it would certainly make our list of gaming smartphones in 2019). You can expect this beauty to come set up with all the latest software updates iPhone users adore like dark mode and the option to create your own personalised emojis.
