Better Battery Life
We all want longer battery life. All three new iPhones deliver longer battery life over the previous-generation models announced just last year. The iPhone 11 Pro lasts four more hours in a day over the iPhone XS. The iPhone 11 Pro Max will go a future 5 hours over the iPhone XS Max. And the iPhone 11 has about 1 hour longer than the iPhone XR.
Longer battery life is all thanks to a new A13 Bionic chip. It is what processes everything you do on the iPhone. From apps, playing games, capturing photos, Machine Learning, and more. Over the A12, the A13 chip is 20% faster in CPU and GPU performance. And it can deliver more than 1 trillion operations per second – making it the best machine learning platform in the world.
Many new features will arrive with iOS 13. A free software update that was announced during WWDC. And will not only arrive at new iPhones but previous-generations too.
iOS 13 brings Dark Mode, major updates to apps, big privacy improvements, and much more. Photos and videos get a significant range of new editing tools and features.
There are many more improvements and additions to the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. Some of which include:
