A Pro Camera System for Everyone
iPhone 11 Pro introduces a transformative triple-camera system with all-new Ultra-Wide, Wide, and Telephoto cameras, deeply integrated into iOS to create a pro-level camera experience designed for everyone.
iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max set a new standard in the video, with the highest quality video ever in a smartphone. Each camera in the triple-camera system records brilliant 4K video with extended dynamic range and cinematic video stabilization.
With a wider field of view and a large focal plane, the Ultra-Wide camera is great for shooting action videos. Users can easily zoom between each of the three cameras, while Audio Zoom matches the audio to the video framing for more dynamic sound.
With iOS 13, powerful video editing tools are accessible to everyone with the ability to rotate, crop, increase exposure and apply filters to videos instantly. These adjustments are easy to apply and review at a glance, so even a novice can create professional-quality video projects.
With the tight integration between hardware and software, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max take the traditional camera experience even further in a way only Apple can.
The all-new Ultra-Wide camera fundamentally changes the camera experience by capturing four times more scenes, great for taking landscape or architecture photos, tight shots, and more. The new Wide sensor with 100 percent Focus Pixels and advanced software enables Night mode and delivers huge improvements to photos shot in indoor and outdoor low-light environments, resulting in brighter images with natural colors and reduced noise.
The triple-camera system takes Portrait mode to a new level with the ability to choose Wide and Telephoto framing, enabling Portrait mode with a wider field of view, great for taking portraits of multiple people. The Telephoto camera features a larger ƒ/2.0 aperture to capture 40 percent lighter compared to iPhone XS for better photos and videos.
Next-generation Smart HDR uses advanced machine learning to recognize subjects in the frame and intelligently relight them for more natural-looking images with greater detail. A new True Tone flash is over 30 percent brighter. Deep Fusion, coming later this fall, is a new image processing system enabled by the Neural Engine of A13 Bionic. Deep Fusion uses advanced machine learning to do pixel-by-pixel processing of photos, optimizing for texture, details, and noise in every part of the photo.
Triple Camera System
A redesigned camera interface provides a more immersive experience that works together with the triple-camera system and all-screen display to let users see and capture the area outside of the frame. For the first time, users can easily record video without switching out of Photo mode with QuickTake by simply holding the shutter button to start recording.
The new True Depth camera introduces a new 12MP camera with a wider field of view to capture selfies, and next-generation Smart HDR enables more natural-looking photos. Expressive selfie videos take on a whole new look with the True Depth camera that now records 4K video at up to 60 fps and 120 fps slo-mo.
The new Apple-designed U1 chip uses Ultra-Wideband technology, the first-ever smartphone, for spatial awareness. With iOS 13.1 coming on September 30, Airdrop gets even better with directionally aware suggestions.
Face ID, the most secure facial authentication in a smartphone, gets up to 30 percent faster and easier to use with improved performance at varying distances and support for more angles.
Spatial audio provides an immersive surround sound experience and Dolby Atmos delivers powerful, moving the audio to iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Gigabit-class LTE up to 1.6Gbps and Wi-Fi 6 allows for even faster download speeds2 and Dual SIM with eSIM.3
Featuring iOS 13
iOS 13 on iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max delivers a seamless experience with software and hardware integration, unlike any other smartphone. iOS 13 introduces a dramatic new look with Dark Mode, a more private way to sign in to apps and websites with Sign in with Apple, and an all-new Maps experience.4
With advanced camera and photo features, photo editing is more comprehensive and intuitive with powerful new tools that now extend to video editing.

iPhone 11 Pro Max Colors
The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max share color options, but they have unique colors from the standard, non-Pro iPhone 11. Three of the color options are likely familiar to iPhone owners: Gold, Space Gray, and Silver. But, there’s also one new color available: Midnight Green. And, like the non-pro models, the color scheme includes both the back glass and the metal frame.
The iPhone 11 Pro starts at $999 / £1,049 / AU$1,749, and the Pro Max costs a little more at $1,099 / £1,149 /AU$1,899. You’ll get the same price regardless of which color you choose.
iPhone 11 Pro / Max in silver
The 'clean version of the iPhone 11 Pro is silver, not white - a little classier, sleeker, and farther from the blanc chic of mid-aughts Apple. This is the simple-yet-elegant color to pick if black is just too dark.
iPhone 11 in space gray
It’s not black, it’s ‘space gray’ - and particularism aside, it is more of a matte gray than the dark black found in the iPhone 11 Pro. This is the classy, nondescript, understated look of the line, in our opinion. And it goes with plenty of cases. And it goes with plenty of cases.
iPhone 11 Pro in gold
Yes, the vaunted gold color is back - not rose gold, sadly, but a rich yet not gaudy gold. If the iPhone 11 Pro or Pro Max fan in your life wants the gold hue, you’ll probably know.
iPhone 11 Pro in midnight green
Here’s the funky color of the iPhone 11 Pro / Pro Max generation - a forest green-looking hue that’s understated yet vibrant. Keep in mind what kind of case colors you’ll need to buy to match.
Which color is best for you?
The iPhone 11 Pro Max, like the iPhone 11 Pro, features four colors, Space Gray, Silver, Gold, and new for this year, Midnight Green. Here’s a look at each color and which one we like the best and why.
Still a winning color: Space Gray iPhone 11 Pro Max
Iconic is a word to describe the Apple iPhone. Add the equally epitomic Space Gray hue, and you have a timeless beauty in your hands. Get the Space Gray iPhone 11 Pro if you expect traditional elegance done right.

A newbie in the Apple house: Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro Max
Apple’s newest iPhone color is a distinctive dark green variety that looks amazing and refined. Match it with a clear case and get ready for the looks. If you’re the type of buyer who likes something fresh, this is the iPhone 11 Pro to get!

Traditional option: Silver iPhone 11 Pro Max
Nearly as iconic as Space Gray, Silver has been a popular iPhone color choice for many years. On the top-of-the-line iPhone 11 Pro series, the silver stands out and goes with anything. Wrap it with an unusual case when you want it to stand out.

Bold and brassy: Gold iPhone 11 Pro Max
The Gold iPhone 11 Pro is another elegant choice. This year’s gold finish is slightly different than the one Apple has used on past handsets. As usual, it’s a winner.

Go dark: our overall choice is a familiar one
No iPhone is inexpensive, but some are pricier than others, of course. The iPhone 11 Pro Max, like the iPhone XS Max before it, is the most expensive Apple handset to date. Because of this, we’re going with a tried-and-true hue as our favorite model: Space Gray. Yes, the all-new Midnight-Green model is breathtakingly beautiful in its own right. Still, we’re not sure whether the color will withstand the test of time style-wise like the more traditional Space Gray model.
The Space Gray iPhone 11 Pro is an excellent choice that works well with a range of cases. Understated, yet commanding, it’s long been a popular selection for iPhone owners. You might even think of it as the “businessperson’s iPhone.”
It’s classic. It’s elegant. It’s the little black dress of phones. It goes with everything but doesn’t distract from your style. If you’re the kind of person that shies away from flashy fashion but want your iPhone to show off your power moves, the classic Space Gray will match your suit, and your workout wears perfectly.
New lineup, new color
It’s the new color, and for a lot of us, that’s all we need to know. It doesn’t even matter whether we like the color or not. But don’t worry. It’s nothing wild. It’s an understated shade of green, almost more like gray with a tinted green hue. If you want a little color in your life, but don’t want to go down the iPhone 11 path of pastels, this green is easy on the eyes, while still being something worth showing off. If you like being the kid on the block with all the new toys, you’ll want Midnight-Green to show off your new look.
Pure and bright
Silver, like Space Gray, is a classic color. This year, the white backside gets a matte finish, and let me tell you, it looks like white satin gloves. If you ever thought white was dull, this beauty will change your mind. It’s rich like vanilla ice-cream and clean looking like an Apple Store. It’s an Apple design through-and-through. It’s got a little bit more of a “wow factor” than the Space Gray. So, if you like to turn heads, but don’t like to show off, Silver is more your speed. It balances the line between classic and eye-catching.
We’ll always love the silver finish for Apple products. It’s a practical choice each year.
Gold iPhone 11 Pro Max
Put the bling in your iPhone without putting out a bad vibe with the Gold iPhone 11 Pro.
Gold is the flashiest color of this group with that gorgeous yellow glint, sparkling at you from afar. If you feel like a queen, this is a queen’s iPhone. It’s not wild, though. It’s more akin to a thin gold necklace or a small pair of diamond earrings. Just enough flash to make people look, but not so much that your friends start questioning your choices. If you want to be noticed, but like to do so in a subtle way (“Oh, me? You noticed my gold iPhone? Why thank you.”), the Gold iPhone hits the sweet spot without being over-the-top.
