On Tuesday Apple announced their newest trio of smartphones; no longer is the iPhone X the big thing, it’s now all about the iPhone 11 and its slightly controversial back cameras. However, although the iPhone 11 is the new “it” phone, are they worth the $1,000 price tag? And are you really saving $300 by buying the iPhone 11 at $700 instead of its more techy brothers, the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, which cost upwards of $999? It’s time we begin to face the future, and with that, face the unfortunate reality that phone creators cannot continue to release a phone every 10 months. Apple’s newest flagship is sailing towards a new world, one where the iPhone doesn’t run the show.
September 9, Apple released their newest phones, the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone Pro Max (starting at $699, $999, and $1,099 respectively). Like so many of the iPhones that have set sail before it, the 11 comes with a more powerful chip and an even better camera than its predecessor, the iPhone X.
Strangely enough, that’s all it comes with.
Besides the addition of another camera sensor and a triple camera system on the 11 Pro, it’s almost identical to the iPhone X. “Ultra Wide, Wide and Telephoto camera, delivering huge improvements to low-light photography and offering the highest quality video in a smartphone that is great for shooting action videos,” proclaims the Apple website, but that’s basically where the bragging stops. Besides the high tech camera system, the specs of the 11 are so similar to the X making many wonder why Apple even bothered to put out another phone.
