iPhone 11 Pro a very tempting upgrade. But should you?

There might be some wisdom to Apple’s once-a-year launch cadence and seemingly more modest upgrades year after year. Android OEMs launch twice a year or more, making the gaps between each flagship model smaller and the features so much closer to each other. 

When Apple finally does make big changes, it makes huge changes. That happened with the iPhone X and we might be seeing the same revolution with the iPhone 11 and especially the iPhone 11 Pro. While the new camera bump is the center of attraction, it’s not the only reason iPhone fans and users will be thinking hard about upgrading to this year’s latest.

What’s New This Year

It’s hard to deny that the cameras are the star of Apple’s 2019 iPhones and, fortunately, they’re not as terrible as leaks made them out to be. Going beyond appearances, the new cameras are definitely worth talking about and considering.

Of course, they still have to be tested in the wild but Apple has not been one to terribly disappoint in that arena. The 12 megapixel front camera is also a groundbreaking jump from a company that has been rather stingy when it comes to FaceTime iPhone cameras.

Today at a “Special Event” at Steve Jobs Theater, Apple revealed what it has in store for the much-leaked iPhone 11, and the news is good for smartphone photography lovers who were hoping Apple would catch up with Android phones like the Google Pixel 3.

The iPhone 11 is the next generation of the entry-level iPhone XR model, and it adds much more capable photography features to what was previously a single-camera smartphone. The new dual-camera setup on the rear ditches the telephoto camera for dual 12MP wide-angle and ultra-wide angle cameras, giving you a lot more versatility in the photos you can capture. 

The 12MP wide-angle camera uses a 26mm f/1.8, 6-element lens with optical image stabilization and 100% on-sensor PDAF pixel coverage. The 12MP ultra-wide angle camera goes a lot wider, giving you a 13mm f/2.4, 5-element lens with a 120° field of view. From what we can tell, this one will NOT be optically stabilized.

In addition to the dual-camera, “entry-level” iPhone 11 that Apple introduced today, the electronics company also revealed the much-anticipated triple camera smartphone that everyone has been expecting. Called the iPhone 11 Pro, it is the first iPhone to get the “Pro” monicker previously reserved for the company’s computers.

The iPhone 11 Pro will come in two flavors: a 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro and 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max. Both phones feature Apple’s latest A13 Bionic processor and an impressive new ‘Super Retina XDR’ OLED display that offers a reported 1,200 nits peak brightness and a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio while somehow also being 15 percent more energy efficient.
