The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max will be available in four colors
On the other hand, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max will be available in four sophisticated colors: gold, midnight green, silver, and space gray.
The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone Pro Max both have three cameras
The two phones come with a triple-camera system which will let you take photos like a pro (see what we did there?). The camera system features an Ultra Wide, Wide, and Telephoto camera so you can take breathtaking shots any time.
All phones will have a wide-angle camera
While the iPhone 11 features a dual-camera system, it also has a Wide and Ultra Wide angle settings. Plus, all phones will have night mode as well as advanced photo and video editing tools within the camera app so you can upload your shots and videos with just a few taps.
The phones will have better video quality
According to Apple, each camera in the dual -and triple-camera systems records 4K video with a "cinematic video stabilization" so you'll be able to shoot high-quality clips.
The phones will have an improved battery life
Each phone is powered by Apple’s new A13 Bionic chip, which they've dubbed the “fastest chip ever in a smartphone." This means faster overall performance from the phone as well as improved battery life.

The iPhone 11 promises up to 17 hours of nonstop video playback on a full charge and can house up to 256 GB of internal memory.

Each phone is water-resistant up to two meters for up to 30 minutes (four meters for the Pro and Pro Max), and promises to stay safe from everyday spills.
