3 cameras? What is the benefit of that?
The phones are too good now

top even upgrade every 2 years. They need to start hitting on other revenue streams like TV though I can’t imagine investing in that right now.
Can someone tell me the difference  
Dave in Hoboken : 9/10/2019 3:03 pm : link
between the iphone 11 and the iphone 11 pro? I have an upgrade due in December so I'm just curious what the differences are between the two.
there is no 5g yet  
hitdog42 : 9/10/2019 3:07 pm : link
so not sure what the point is
what's the point of 256 gigs  
UConn4523 : 9/10/2019 3:15 pm : link
when you can pay $1-$2 per month for cloud storage? I stream all music (especially with Spotify's offline feature) and videos are all via an app (Netflix, Youtube, Amazon, etc).

With cloud backup all my photos/videos are stored as well so space is never an issue. 64gb has been plenty for years.

1 telephoto, one wide angle, one super wide angle. The camera app lets you stand in place and change thru all three for photos. For video, you can shift from one to the other, providing an optical zoom. If you are doing more than just taking snapshots, it's pretty cool.

Big difference cost wise. The pro has the crazy cameras which is big for photography. And Apple says the pro has something called "super retina" display, which I can't imagine is that noticeable. 11 pro is available in two sizes. Seems kinda like 11 moves into the XR spot and the pro is the XS spot.
The most uninspiring Apple event I've ever seen  
Ron from Ninerland : 9/10/2019 3:29 pm : link
And that's coming from a 100% Apple fan boy. There couldn't be a worse time to buy an expensive iPhone than now. 5G is coming in 2020 and anything Apple is selling now will be obsolete. Do you really want to spend $1000 on a phone now ? The only thing that's might be better is the camera and even that's debatable. The XR took a step back from the 8, one lens as opposed to two, and from what I can see the base 11 is still inferior to the 8.

The always on Apple Watch 5 is intriguing but other than that not much. We still don't know much about Apple TV except for one glossy series with Khal Drogo. Are they going to have movies and TV shows like Netflix, Amazon and Disney/Hulu ? I'm not sure that even Apple knows

"This year we put 'pro' on the label". Seriously the Pro as 3 lenses including telephoto, the basic has 2. The Pro has an OLED display, the basic is LCD.
Thanks Heisenberg and Ron.

Maybe I should just wait to use my upgrade for next year with the 5G phones. My IPhone 8 is still in great shape and works just fine.

Base 11 is better than the 8, for sure. I have the XR and love it because of the number one feature of all day battery life. 11 improves on that.

But we've hit the point where all cell phones are pretty great. There's little to differentiate them in significant ways. So I'm happy that there's cheaper but still great options like XR and 11. It may not be great for Apple or shareholders but it's great for consumers.

I also was thinking of getting an ipad so them pushing an ipad with pencil support closer to the chromebook pricing is great for me personally.

The market is headed towards wearables. I think the next big things will be contacts of some sort.
Skip this version of the phone.
