The iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max are smartphones designed, developed and marketed by Apple Inc. They are the 13th-generation flagships of the iPhone, succeeding the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. They were unveiled on September 10, 2019 alongside the lower-end model, the iPhone 11 at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park, by Apple's CEO Tim Cook, with pre-orders beginning September 13, 2019 and official release on September 20, 2019.
The prominent changes from the iPhone XS are that the models feature a new triple-lens rear camera system, and the new A13 Bionic chip. The iPhone 11 Pro is Apple's first iPhone to feature a "pro" designation, which was previously reserved for larger Apple products (such as the iPad Pro). The model is the first iPhone to include an 18W fast charger in the box and a Lightning to USB-C cable allowing connection to concurrent Mac computers
Both the iPhone 11 Pro and the Pro Max are available in four colors: Gold, Space Gray, Silver, and Midnight Green. Midnight Green is a new color previously not available on iPhones. Similar to the iPhone XS, there is a notch at the front that includes the TrueDepth camera system and speaker. There is also a new rear camera design with three cameras and a flash in a larger, square-shaped bump, which is the most visible difference compared to the iPhone XS.
Both models also have a 12MP TrueDepth front camera with a f/2.0 aperture. There is a burst mode, image stabilization, HDR and a portrait mode with supporting an advanced Bokeh effect. The frontal camera also supports stabilized 4K video recording up to 60fps. Apple has added slow motion video recording to the front camera in 1080p at up to 120 fps, a feature which Apple refers to as "slofies". Similar to previous iPhone models, the TrueDepth system is also used for Face ID and Animoji.
