iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max hands-on


– Hey everybody, I am
holding the iPhone 11 Pro, and you can tell it’s a Pro because it has this big square
with three lenses on it. And, a matte finish. Now those are the first
things you’ll notice about it, but what’s important about
it is what it can do, and what’s inside. So let’s check it out. So I said I wanted to move on from the matte finish right away, but I actually don’t,
because it’s really nice. It feels much better. Now this is a new kind
of glass that Apple says is more durable, and it
seamlessly goes into that camera. It’s all one piece of glass, which should help with it’s durability. The other thing that
you’ll see on the outside is a new super retina XDR display. Now what does all that mean? Well it means that it
can get even brighter, it can get up to 1200 nits. And it has a two million
to one contrast ratio. But I think most importantly
for me, and maybe for you, is that it’s 15% more battery efficient. So it should help your
battery last longer. Apple says that the 11
Pro gets four hours more than the iPhone 10-S,
while the 11 Pro-Max, can get up to five hours more
than the iPhone 10-S Max. Now the other reason that
this should be more efficient is it has a new A13 Bionic processor. It is of course, faster
than the last processor. And Apple says that it
has the most powerful GPU, or CPU, ever, on a smartphone. And you know what, that’s
not that much of a surprise, it’s not like anything was catching up to the A12 in the first place. But this is definitely
doing a pretty good job rendering a web page really, really fast. But the most important thing
to talk about is cameras. There is a telephoto,
the standard wide angle, and now an ultra-wide. There’s three there,
they’re all 12 megapixels, and they can all basically
record the same quality video, and take basically the
same quality photos. So, not a single one of them is the worse quality
than the others over all. So if we look inside the camera app, actually, weirdly, my favorite thing is this new redesigned camera app. So when you’re in the standard 1X mode, the viewfinder fills the whole
screen which, looks cool, but also it lets you know the
mode of photo you’re taking, without having to see a little button. You can go to the wide
and then it zooms in. Or we can go, all the way
out with the telephoto. Or, like on a Samsung,
you can drag your finger, and as you drag your finger, you can see it also
shows you the millimeter. So, if you actually speak
like a camera person, you understand that the 2X is
a 52 millimeter equivalent, the wide is a 26 millimeter equivalent, and then the ultra-wide is
a 13 millimeter equivalent. Now, the selfie camera,
is also better now. It is a 12 megapixel camera,
and it has a standard wide, or zooms in, so you can
choose whether you want the wide angle or not. But it still a single lens. Speaking of the selfie camera, up here there’s also
of course the face ID. Apple says it’s faster, but it also says that it works better at multiple angles. So you won’t have to pick up the phone and look at it with a bunch of attention. It might work when
you’re just on your desk, and you glance at it. Now there are some other features in the camera we’re talking about, one thing that isn’t
here yet is night mode, which will be, hopefully an equivalent to what the Google Pixel’s doing,
or theoretically, better. You also have this new
quick capture feature. So instead of just taking a photo, I can hold my finger down, and it’ll start recording a video there. Which is really nice, it
works basically the way that, I don’t know, that like Instagram works, which I must prefer that. The other thing that it’s doing is a whole lot more machine learning. So if we take a photo here, they’re doing a lot of analysis
of what’s in the photo, which will theoretically
allow it to pick up things, like they showed like
sweater grain and so on. I have no idea if it’s
actually happening here, but, for certain scenes,
they’re doing a lot more neural analysis and machine
learning on the photo itself to improve it’s quality. Now there are a few other
odds and ends to talk about. It comes in a new midnight green color, which hopefully we’re gonna go see. And, I deeply love the
midnight green color, like way too much. It no longer has like the haptic 3D touch, you sort of do long
presses instead to do that, and I don’t miss that at all. It still uses a lightening port, wah wah. But, it comes with an 18 watt
charger in the box, finally! And that 18 watt charger
uses USBC, finally, so you know, baby steps,
we’re getting there. So, that’s exciting. So this iPhone 11 Pro starts at $999, the iPhone 11 Pro Max starts at $1099. You can get different storage options to bring the Pro Max all the way up to, I think, $1450 bucks. Pre-orders start on September 13th, and they start shipping on
September 20th, so really quick. Hey everybody, thanks
so much for watching, it’s Apple day, it’s always crazy in here, it’s super crazy behind me and we’re gonna go into the
craziness and get more hands on. So keep it locked to “The Verge.”

  1. You’re wrong about the cameras all being just as good. The ultra wide angle lens has a higher aperture meaning it’s not as good in low light compared to the other 2. It also has less “glass” might mean a bit lower quality than the other 2

  2. Thank you for your video. Can you find out if Apple is still using the Intel LTE modem in the A13 chip, or did they go back to Qualcomm's LTE modem? I'm hoping that since they settled their legal battles that they go back to using the better Qualcomm LTE modem. Thank you in advance.

  3. How many cameras you need apple iPhone 15 will have like🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥🎥

  4. Boring , how about change the look of the whole phone , instead of just add more camera 📸 , people should just use their old iPhone and go buy a good camera and enjoy.

  5. So first of all, WTF. I can’t find one reason why I need to upgrade my iPhone X. I can hear apple stock tumbling down. What a fail, apple completely lost the touch and wow factor.

  6. Why is it that Apple makes a new phone every eight months it feels like they are rushing like really three cameras ? Wtf is that

  7. funny how they "upgrade the ram so you can surf faster", well apple's update is making the phone load's longer and making the phone slower so you can buy a new phone…lol..funny

  8. Apple has gotten really slow at making any significant changes to the IPhones !

    The only thing they ever do is – increase processor and graphics speed.

  9. Lowkey Apple "did not raise" the prices of the new iPhones but the base storage are 64GB which is not acceptable for flagship phones nowadays so basically the supposed to be real price points of these iPhones are:
    $799 for 128GB iPhone 11
    $1099 for 256GB iPhone 11 Pro
    $1249 for 256GB iPhone 11 Pro Max

    I mean most people would never get the 64GB variant so they would opt to the next storage tier.

  10. All these jokes and complaints about the design.. Reminds me when people cried about the AirPods design in 2015 and the notch design in 2017.

    Eventually they will become iconic designs and all these copycats are gonna show up.
