iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro: What's the difference?
Yes there's a difference in price but what else?
Tech giants Apple, have designed two brand new iPhones that are guaranteed to take the world by storm. Released in September, the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro were created using Apple's most advanced technology and innovative materials and come with some impressive new features. However, before you order your own, you need to decide which iPhone is right for you and if the differences between the two models really matter to you - after all, there's a price difference here. Here is our complete guide to the new iPhone models and the key differences between them:
Aesthetically, the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro are sleek and stunning, but they're also worlds apart. They're both made with the toughest glass ever, which is located on the front and back of the phone, but this is where the visual similarities end.
The iPhone 11 has a 6.1 inch screen and has a visually striking Liquid Retina Display screen, which uses a dense concentration of pixels to present more vibrant images on the screen. The body of the phone is made from aerospace-grade aluminium, which gives it a lightweight feel; this is useful if you often keep your phone in your pocket. Apple is injecting their iPhone 11's with colour this year; they're available in the standard black or white, but if you're feeling adventurous, you can also choose to opt for purple, yellow or green.
With the Pro, you have a choice of sizes and can select either 5.8 inches or a super-wide 6.5-inch screen. The display is their most vibrant yet, using Super Retina XDR technology for a striking visual display. Made of steel, the Pro is a more robust design that is less likely to get scratched or damaged. The colour selection is more muted, available in understated green and grey or the slightly more luxe gold or silver.
One of the biggest disparities between the new iPhones comes from the cameras. They both capture amazing photos, but the Pro might be a better option for budding photographers or those who want a top quality Instagram feed with the very best picture quality.
The iPhone 11 comes with two cameras, both of which capture images and videos in high definition. These new cameras are better able to sense depth, giving your photo more dimension and texture. Struggling to squeeze everybody into a group photo will be a thing of the past, as the ultra-wide lens captures everything that's happening outside the shot. The iPhone 11's camera has an improved autofocus versus the iPhone XR, so can capture top quality images, even in low light, as it adjusts the white balance to match the room's lighting.
Contrastingly, the iPhone 11 Pro is built with three cameras, ideal for avid photographers or those wanting to capture the best quality videos. The extra telephoto lens allows you to take professional quality photos, with a 4x optical zoom for more framing options than ever. The quality doesn't stop at photos and you're able to shoot 4K videos with ease and as you zoom in, the audio does too.
Processor and battery life
As the features have advanced, so too have the processors in both of the iPhone models. The A13 Bionic chip is the fastest ever in a smartphone, allowing for rapid and smooth operation of your favourite apps without using up excess battery life. A great new feature enhanced by the chip is Quicktake, which allows you to quickly transition between video and photo mode, with a simple touch of a button.
The iPhone battery life has been a topic of concern for many iPhone users; but with this model, Apple might have finally cracked the issue. Both models have all day battery life (if you're not a ridiculously heavy video user) and faster charging times; the 11 Pro has the longest battery life ever, five hours more than the iPhone XS Max.
For the most part, the features in the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro are similar, but their execution is different.
This generation of iPhone uses Ultra Wideband technology, which makes it easier and quicker to send files, photos and documents to other devices in the vicinity. This generation of iPhone allows the user to edit videos, just as easily as photos. Feel free to add crops, filter and frames to your video, focusing on the minute details. The iPhone 11 has also introduced the 'slofie', allowing you to take a slow-motion picture in selfie mode, sure to revolutionise your photography game. The biggest disparity between the phones is the quality of the camera used to capture the images and videos in the first place; those taken with the Pro will make for a better quality end product.
The iPhone 11 continues to use many features of the last generation, but perfected its execution; For instance, Face ID is now more accurate and much more secure. Like the last generation, this generation of iPhone is water resistant and can survive underwater without breaking, but for much longer. The standard iPhone 11 is water resistant up to 2 meters for 30 minutes. The iPhone Pro is much hardier, and can survive in up to 4 meters of water for 30 minutes, double the depth of the iPhone XR.
RAM & Memory
The quality of videos and images are only increasing, which means our iPhones need more storage space to accommodate this. Luckily, the new generations of iPhone have you covered and the storage has upped significantly since the iPhone X.
Owners of the iPhone 11 can look forward to a maximum of 256GB of storage, meaning you can avoid the dreaded 'storage full' notification for longer. If you want to save money, there are 64 and 128 GB options are available. However, if you're looking for an epic storage option for your 4K videos and top quality photos, then the iPhone 11 Pro might be the best option for you; with more up to 512GB of storage available, you can have creative freedom without having to worry about storage again. Even with all that storage, it's always worth considering getting yourself an iCloud or Google Drive account to back up your precious photos and other files.
Hopefully that helps and you know exactly which iPhone 11 model is right for you. If you have further questions, the Chitter Chatter team are only a Tweet away or call 020. Want to see the latest iPhone 11 deals?
