The iPhones of 2019

On September 10 media outlets, tech enthusiasts and devoted Apple fans flocked to Cupertino, California to fill Steve Jobs Theater. They were there to hear Apple CEO Tim Cook announce the upcoming Apple product releases, most notably the iPhone releases.

We spent the summer discussing the iPhone releases before we even knew which rumors to believe and which to ditch. Now that the 2019 Apple Keynote has taken place, we finally know what products and features to get excited about from both Apple and Rokform. 

In case you missed it, you can watch the 2019 Apple Keynote here, but here’s a recap of the three new iPhones:

 

iPhone 11

  • 6.1-inch Liquid Retina LCD screen
  • Front and back glass
  • IP68 Splash, Water, and Dust resistant (up to 2 meters for 30 minutes)
  • Dual 12MP Ultra Wide and Wide Cameras
  • Dual SIM
  • A13 Bionic chip
  • Color options: white, black, yellow, red, lavender, and green
  • Starts at $699 for 64GB capacity (Price drop compared to the iPhone XR’s $729 starting price)

With a price drop that makes the starting price lower than that of its predecessor, the iPhone XR, many people are saying that the iPhone 11 is the best value of the three releases. The iPhone 11 has the dual-lens back camera that the XR lacked, which is sure to entice some people that might've held back from purchasing the XR last year. iPhone 11 is powered by the same A13 Bionic chip, which Apple says is its fastest processor ever, that is included on the iPhone 11 Pro models.

 

iPhone 11 Pro

The Camera

A couple of months ago we rounded up the 2019 iPhone rumors and all people could talk about was the suspected upgrades to the iPhone camera. Well, the rumors weren't wrong! Tim Cook announced some massive features and specification upgrades to all three phones.

  • Ultra wide lens on Pro Series iPhones
  • Night mode that takes illuminated photos in low lighting
  • "Slofie" - Apple's hoping to coin this term for its new slow-motion video selfies

iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max introduces the expected triple camera system to Apple phone products, something that's already been around Samsung phones. 

Where last year the iPhone XR lacked the dual-lens camera on the back of the phone, the iPhone 11 features dual 12MP Ultra Wide and Wide Cameras.

All three iPhone 11 models are set to be released on Friday, September 20. Apple started accepting pre-orders today, September 13. You can pre-order your iPhone 11 on Apple’s website.
