The iPhone 11 is available in six colors: purple, yellow, green, black, white, and red. There is a notch at the front for the TrueDepth camera system and speaker, similar to its predecessor, the iPhone XR. There is a bump in the back for the cameras and the flash that is the same size as the iPhone 11 Pro, although the iPhone 11 only has two cameras compared to the Pro’s three. Also, the iPhone 11 has a matte rear camera housing and smooth back, while the iPhone 11 Pro has a smooth rear camera housing and matte back. The Apple logo is now centered on the back of the device with no text.
The iPhone 11, along with the iPhone 11 Pro, has Apple’s A13 Bionic processor with a third-generation neural engine. It has three internal storage options: 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256GB. It also has 4 GB of RAM. The iPhone 11 has an IP68 water and dust-resistant rating along with dirt and grime, and is waterproof in two meters up to 30 minutes. However, the manufacturer warranty does not cover liquid damage to the phone. Also, like previous iPhones, both phones do not have a headphone jack, and come with wired EarPods with a Lightning connector. iPhone 11 is the first smartphone with built-in ultra-wideband hardware, via its Apple U1 chip.
The iPhone 11 has a 6.1 in (15.5 cm) IPS LCD, unlike the Pro models which have OLED displays.
The resolution is 1792×828 pixels (326 ppi) with a maximum brightness of 625 nits and a 1400:1 contrast ratio. It supports Dolby Vision, HDR10, True-Tone, and wide color gamut. As with the iPhone 11 Pro, XR, XS, and X, the display has a notch at the top for the TrueDepth camera system and the speaker. The display has an oleophobic coating that is fingerprint-resistant. Apple announced in September 2019 that both the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro would show a warning notification if a display was replaced with an unauthorized part. Apple stated that problems with the phone could arise if the wrong parts or procedures were used during the repair process.
The iPhone 11 includes a dual-lens 12MP rear camera array. There is one f/2.4 ultra wide angle lens with a 120 degree field of view and 2x optical zoom out and one f/1.8 wide angle lens. The iPhone 11 supports 4K video at up to 60 fps and 1080p slow motion at up to 240 fps. The phone also features an audio zoom feature which focuses audio on the area that is being zoomed in on, similar to the Pro model. Both of the cameras support video although only the primary lens has OIS. It supports a Portrait Mode supporting depth control and an advanced Bokeh effect. The phone also has an automatic Night Mode allowing the camera to take brighter pictures with reduced noise in low light environments. There is also a redesigned camera app that adds new features such as a scroll wheel for choosing between the different lenses and long-pressing the shutter button to take a video. Apple has also announced a new Deep Fusion feature which will take advantage of AI and machine learning for image processing.
iPhone 11 is shipped with iOS 13, which includes Siri, Face ID (through the TrueDepth camera), Apple Pay, and supports Apple Card.
