iPhone 11 vs iPhone 11 Pro: Which to buy?

iPhone 11

The iPhone 11 is the successor to the iPhone XR introduced last year. The iPhone XR sticks around in the iPhone lineup at the price of $599, whereas the iPhone 11 starts at $699 and the iPhone 11 Pro starts at $999.

One of the biggest differences between the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro is the display. The iPhone 11 features an LCD “Liquid Retina” panel with a 1792×828 resolution. That comes out to for 326 pixels-per-inch. This is notably lower than the resolutions of 458 pixels-per-inch found on the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, but it’s still a fantastic screen overall.

In terms of design, the iPhone 11 looks similar to the iPhone 11 Pro, but you will notice slightly larger bezels due to the LCD panel compared to the OLED of the iPhone 11 Pro. This shouldn’t be too noticeable if you’re coming from an iPhone XR or earlier.

The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are the followups to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The iPhone 11 Pro measures in at 5.8-inches, where as the iPhone 11 Pro Max comes in at 6.5-inches.

The iPhone 11 Pro line uses OLED display technology, which means you get improved colors and deeper blacks. The display of the iPhone 11 Pro is 2436×1125, while the iPhone 11 Pro Max is 2688×1242. This comes out to 458 pixels-per-inch in both sizes.

Apple also says the iPhone 11 Pro lineup features a wider dynamic range display called Super Retina XDR, which should further improve color reproduction. The iPhone 11 Pro also features a new 800 nits max brightness (typical); 1200 nits max brightness (HDR) display. This compares to the 625 nits max brightness (typical) display of the iPhone 11.

Meanwhile, the iPhone 11 Pro Max offers five hours of additional battery life compared to the iPhone XS Max. That gets you 20 hours of video playback, 12 hours of video streaming, and eight hours of audio playback.

Both the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro include 802.11ax WiFi, WiFi 6, and Gigabit-class LTE.

With these higher-end features comes a higher price tag. The iPhone 11 Pro starts at $999 for 64GB of storage, with the 256GB model coming in at $1,149. You can upgrade to 512GB for $1,349. The iPhone 11 Pro Max starts at $1,099 for 64GB, $1,249 for 256GB, and $1,449 for 512GB.

The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are available in space gray, silver, gold, and an all-new midnight green. They are capable of fast charging, and are the first iPhones ever to include an Apple 18W charger and Lightning to USB-C cable in the box.
