In September, Apple announced the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max as follow-ups to last year’s iPhone XR, XS and XS Max respectively. The new phones pack a new ultrawide-angle camera, an A13 processor, Night mode for photos and iOS 13. In a season filled with new phone releases like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and the Google Pixel 4, the iPhone 11 impressed us early on with improved battery life on the higher-end Pro models and one of the best all-around camera systems found on any phone today. But the launch was soured by various software bugs in early versions of iOS 13.
Over the past two months, I’ve been using the iPhone 11 as my daily driver and the 11 Pro as my work phone. During that time we’ve done in-depth tests dropping the phones, submerging them underwater and comparing their cameras to other phones.
Here’s what I think.
