Apple iPhone 11 – what we know so far

Last week Apple announced the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, with this years feature focus being on the new cameras, battery life, a new super retina display and all new bionic chip.

The cameras in the iPhone 11 Pro now featuring a full 4x optical zoom, ranging from 13mm to 52mm focal lengths. Apple spent a lot of time making it clear that the most popular camera in the world (the iPhone) is now even better.  Some of the features such as, “slofies” (slow motion selfies), feel like gimmicks, but since people take almost all of our photos on their iPhones, it’ll be interesting to see what it can do however feedback from the launch event has not been positive.

Does the iPhone 11 have 5G

Disappointingly despite the rumours and the launch of 5g networks in the UK the new iPhone 11 won’t support 5G.  Although Apple has recently agreed to buy Intel’s smartphone modem business for $1 billion.


Apple are really pushing trade ins heavily with the iPhone 11 release, even their marketed prices state “From £759 with trade in”.

In truth, the iPhone 11 costs from £729, iPhone 11 Pro costs from £1,049, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max costs from £1,149.


Not a lot was mentioned about IOS13 for the iPhone 11 range, in fact, it wasn’t mentioned at all during the presentation.

The public beta version is now available though but please note as of 15th September there have been some stories regards security issues with this latest release.

Without a strong suite of new features to tantalise buyers, Apple and it’s iPhone 11 range has its work cut out as it heads into the very competitive holiday season and next year.  Competitors like Samsung, Google and Huawei are pulling ahead on camera tools and features, and there’s still that question of 5G, iPhone users will have to wait a full year unless we’re surprised with a mid year special event before September 2020.
