The Apple iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max have been officially unveiled and we finally see the latest offerings from Cupertino in all its glory. These handsets boast some interesting features such as triple-lens camera setup, a new matte design and a lot more. However, there are a ton of features that may have slipped under the telescope during the Apple event which make it one of the best handsets in the world.

Here is a list of features that make the iPhone truly special:

  • Water and dust resistant (IP68 up to 4 meters)
  • Enhanced Face ID
  • Brighter True Tone Flash
  • Apple-designed U1 chip
  • Spatial audio
  • Night mode
  • WiFi 6
  • Fast charging
  • Gigabit-class LTE
  • Next-generation Smart HDR
  • Toughest glass in a smartphone
  • 1200 nits peak brightness display
  • Display is 15% more energy efficient

Where the form factor is concerned, 9to5Mac states that the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are similar to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. However, the new models are heavier than the previous generation and this is most likely due to the enhanced battery performance.

Apple states that with the new iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, you get an increase of up to five hours of additional battery life than the iPhone XS. This means that you get whopping 18-hours of continuous video playback, 11-hours of video streaming and massive 65-hours of audio playback.

The new iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are available in four colour options — Space Grey, Silver, Gold and a new Midnight Green. The handsets also come with a new matte finish as opposed to the glossy finish found on the XS. This will make it easier to grip and will reduce the need for a case.
