Apple iPhone 11 review
Dual camera and fastest processor ever
Our Apple iPhone 11 review takes a closer look at the latest iPhone model. Apple has gone all out with the fastest processor ever used on a smartphone. The camera gets a bump up to a dual-lens and the battery can go all-day.
Liquid Retina display and beautiful design
The Apple iPhone 11 has a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display with a resolution of 828 x 1792 pixels. The aspect ratio of 19.5:9 gives an amazing viewing experience with an all-screen look. A slim nodule at the top holds the camera and other sensors. As this cutout is small you get more screen to immerse yourself into videos, movies or gaming. True Tone technology adjusts the white balance to match the colour of the light around you.

Camera & Video
New dual-camera system
The Apple iPhone 11 gets a whole new camera package with a dual camera on the pack. The rear camera is made up of a:
- 12MP Wide lens - 100% Focus Pixels for faster autofocus in low light
- 12MP Ultra Wide - Get four times more of the scene for stunning landscapes and action shots
The new Ultra-Wide lens lets you go big on your photos. This wider lens captures four times more of the surrounding scene. Perfect for landscapes or crowd shots at concerts, you can truly get creative with the iPhone 11 camera.
Night Mode takes on a whole new level with a new automatic mode that doesn't need to use the flash. The colours are natural and images brighter without having to add noise from the flash.
Portrait mode has more lighting controls for beautiful and artistic shots. Smart HDR uses machine learning to recognise people and processes them in the image. It makes people stand out with perfect highlights on the face and makes sure every sunset shot is stunning.
4K video recording
The iPhone 11 can capture 4K video at 60fps and the Ultra Wide lens takes in more of the scene. When you zoom in while recording video, the audio zooms in too. Video editing goes even further with advanced tools for cropping the action to just the frames you want. You can skew the video in editing and add different filters to get a truly cinematic finish.
12MP Selfie camera
The Apple iPhone 11 has a 12MP TrueDepth camera on the front that takes absolutely amazing selfies. A new selfie feature is the slofie, a slow-motion video capture that records at 120 fps. When you want to capture more of the background, turn the phone into landscape and the camera will zoom out automatically.
The Apple iPhone 11 has a 3,110mAh battery with advanced power management. The efficient processor and latest iOS 13 work together to deliver all-day battery power. When you need to recharge the phone includes fast-charge capability and an 18W charger for more power in less time.
