Faster charging with better battery life
This time apple bundling a faster 18W charging cable with the new iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max smartphones. As per apple official, The new charging cable helps Apple iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max reach up to 50% battery level in roughly 30 minutes.
Like the other new iPhones, the iPhone 11 is flaunting iOS 13, and the lower-cost device makes full use of the fancy new features the operating system brings with it. As well as equipping the iPhone 11 Pro with more power, Apple is promising four hours of extra battery life when compared to last year’s iPhone XS.
Overall apple says Apple iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are optimized to deliver better battery life than the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.
Note: The cheaper iPhone 11 doesn’t come bundled with the faster charger.
New A13 Bionic processor
The iPhone has always had its ‘own’ processors, in the sense that Apple has unique proprietary A10, A11 and A12 chips that you won’t find in other manufacturers’ phones. And iPhone 11 lineup’s latest A13 Bionic processor promises to surpass its predecessor, the A12 Bionic. Apple says the A13 has a 20 percent faster CPU and GPU than the A12, which was already the most powerful processor we’ve ever tested, easily beating this year’s chips from Qualcomm and Huawei. With Apple Arcade – the firm’s all-you-can-eat gaming service – launching on September 19, it’s hardly a surprise Apple is heavily leaning into gaming performance.
With the latest, most high-end processor and a battery that lasts longer than before. The iPhone 11 looks great, especially in shades like purple and yellow, with subtly colour-matched edges and what Apple says is a highly resilient tough glass case.
But still, Apple is going to one of the biggest names missing in the 5G race. Even as Samsung and Huawei have already launched 5G phones, Apple’s 5G iPhone is expected in 2020. Apple was rumored to be working on some interesting features such as reverse wireless charging and even Apple Pencil support for iPhone 11. Likely, these features would now come on next year’s model.
