When it comes to design, the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are identical to the iPhone XS and XS Max, measuring in at 5.8 and 6.5 inches, respectively, with full-screen OLED displays than stretch from edge to edge and top to bottom with minimal bezels.A notch at the front houses the TrueDepth camera system, front speakers, and other sensors, but other than the notch and a slim bezel that wraps around the side of each device, the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are all display.
The rounded corners of each display flow into a body made from a new matte glass material that is encased by a durable stainless steel frame, an upgrade from the aluminum frame in the iPhone 11. Apple designed the steel frame from an alloy created to match the body color, with nearly invisible antenna bands at the top and bottom.
There is no Home button, no bottom bezel, and no Touch ID fingerprint sensor, with the two devices using Face ID for biometric authentication purposes. The left side of the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max houses a standard mute switch and volume buttons, while the right side features a side button that doubles as a power button.From the front, the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max don’t look different than the XS and XS Max, but Apple made some major changes to the back of the device. There’s now a large square-shaped camera bump that houses three lenses arranged in a triangle shape with a flash and microphone nearby.
The camera bump is made from the same glass material as the iPhone and it flows right into the body of the device, but the three lenses do protrude and it is a noticeable change as it’s much larger than the previous dual-lens camera bump from the XS and XS Max.
Both the iPhone 11 Pro and the 11 Pro Max are a bit thicker and a bit heavier than their predecessors to account for the new triplelens camera system.The iPhone 11 Pro measures in at 144mm tall, 71.4mm wide, and 8.1mm thick. It weighs 188 grams. Comparatively, the iPhone XS was 143.6mm tall, 70.9mm wide, and 7.7mm thick, weighing in at 177 grams.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max measures in at 158mm tall, 77.8mm wide, and 8.1mm thick. It weighs 226 grams. The iPhone XS Max was 157.5mm tall, 77.4mm wide, and 7.7mm thick. It weighed in at 208 grams, so the iPhone 11 Pro Max is the heaviest iPhone Apple has released.
The iPhone 11 Pro has a 5.85 inch OLED display with a resolution of 2436×1125 pixels (2.7 megapixels at 458 ppi), while the iPhone 11 Pro Max has a 6.46 inch (marketed as 6.5 inch) OLED display with a resolution of 2688×1242 pixels (3.3 megapixels at 458 ppi).
An updated, next-generation A13 Bionic chip powers the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max. The A13 Bionic is faster and more efficient than the A12 Bionic chip in the previous-generation iPhones, and according to Apple, it is the fastest chip ever used in a smartphone.The two performance cores in the A13’s CPU are up to 20 percent faster and use 30 percent less power than the A12, and the four efficiency cores are up to 20 percent faster and use up to 40 percent less power .The GPU in the A13 is 20 percent faster than the GPU in the A12 and it uses 40 percent less power.
The iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max appear to have4GB of RAM that’s available to apps and the iOS system.
As for storage space, the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max are available in 64, 256, and 512GB capacities.
Lastly, the front-facing camera and TrueDepth Camera system were updated from older version. It has a new 12MP sensor —up from 8MP.It also has a wider field of view, up to 85 from 70 degrees for those group selfie shots.
Apple gave iPhone XS an IP68 water resistance rating, meaning it could be submerged in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes and it would be protected against harmfuldust.iPhone 11 Pro takes it a step further with the same IP68 rating, but can now be submerged up to four meters for a maximum of 30 minutes.
Battery life is outstanding on the new iPhone 11 Pro and Iphone 11 Pro Max. iPhone 11 Pro gets four hours more than iPhone XS and iPhone 11 Pro Max can get up to five hours more than the XS Max.
COLORS AND FINISH
The iPhone XS and XS Max had a glossy finish, but for the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro, Apple implemented a matte finish that looks more like a brushed glass.There are four colors this year: Silver, Space Gray, Gold, and Midnight Green. Midnight Green is a new color that Apple hasn’t ever used before, and it’s a deep, forest green shade that was made possible by ink techniques.
