What is iPhone 11?
How To Set Up iPhone - iPhone 11 Reviews | showtime

iPhone 11 is a successor of the iPhone XR. Being the successor of iPhone XR does not make it anything like the iPhone XR, this time around I personally think that Apple really surprised us with some cool new features and functions.
Well, let’s get started with the unboxing of the iPhone 11. The iPhone 11 pack comes with following;
User manual, airpods, USB cable, Sticker, Injector and of course the device itself.

iPhone 11 Features:

Now let’s analyze the features of the device;

I. Storage
The iPhone 11 comes in three different storages which all has different price tags, here is what it looks like; 64GB- $699, 128GB-$749 and 256GB-$849.

II. Color
The iPhone comes in new two colors of mint green and lavender which is cool and fun, I guess. These colors replaced the blue and coral options of the iPhone XR.

III. Camera  
well, if you ask me, I would say that most iPhone users are obsessed with the device because of its picture and video qualities and from what I’m seeing from the iPhone 11 I don’t think that Apple failed to deliver this time around because they made sure that they hook thier users with new exciting camera features. Here are the details you need to know about the iPhone 11 camera; from the rear back of the device, it comes with a dual camera sensor which are of 12MP each, this actually means that with iPhone 11 you can take wider-angle snaps alongside the main images.
The new iPhone 11 camera came with the following improved features such as night mode for low-light photography, new ultra wide- angle camera, deep fusion processing for better indoor shots and faster autofocus.
Previously the iPhone XR came with the wide angle camera which allows you to take an accommodating long distance shot but with the new iPhone 11 ultra- wide angle camera, you can get a bigger wider accommodating long distance shot better than the wide angle camera. The cool thing is that you can also make use of the ultra- wide angle camera to shoot video while switching in between cameras and also you can add transitions using the zoom effect. Yea, least I forget, normally on the iPhone XR, the camera portrait mode does not support taking pictures of pets and other things but the iPhone 11 has an enhanced portrait mode that support all that including pets etc.
The iPhone 11 also allows low-light pictures at night or where there is no light using the night mode feature.
The device was built in such a way that it will automatically switch to night mode when the light goes off. One thing I love about the night mode is that it takes pictures that comes out natural and bright almost just like it could in the day time.

There is also a lot that the front camera can also do. With the front camera, you can take wider selfie and a faster face ID. The coolest thing about the front camera is that you can make a slow motion selfie
video when I saw that, it was really super amazing. Too bad, this is all for the camera for now.

IV. Battery
According to Apple, they claimed that the iPhone 11 has a longer battery life and duration (precisely 1-hour difference) than the iPhone XR which some of the users still maintain that both battery durations are still the same.

V. Speed Performance
The iPhone 11 still maintain the CPU chip of A13 Bionic and 4GB RAM which is a bit faster in single tasking and a bigger leap in multitasking. The graphics performance is awesome and looks so real Display and Size Both the display and size of iPhone XR and iPhone 11 are still same which is 6.1” Liquid Retina IPS LCD 828 x 1792 PX.

Other features to take note of includes;
A. The iPhone 11 has a networking enhancement of Gigabit-class LTE with 2x2 MIMO and LAA 802.11 ax Wi-Fi with 2x2 MIMO.
B. Enhanced water-resistance that allows your device to be in water for up to 30 minutes and 2 meters deep without anything happening to it.
C. Spatial audio  
One of the awesome way that you can really enjoy using your iPhone is if you can easily operate the functionalities of the device and so if you don’t know how the functionalities works, I suggest that you
should go and learn them, well on that note I will be teaching you but it’s more like guiding you on how to operate the iPhone functionalities yourself.
