A precision-machined 7000 series aluminum frame wraps around an all-glass casing of the iPhone 11. The iPhone 11 sits between Apple’s 5.4-inch “small” iPhone models like the iPhone 13 mini and bigger versions like the 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max in size, with a 6.1-inch display.

The iPhone 11 boasts an edge-to-edge display with tiny bezels and no Home button, with the TrueDepth camera system housed in a notch at the top. The iPhone 11 features somewhat larger bezels than Apple’s most recent OLED-based models since it employs an LCD rather than an OLED display.

An A13 Bionic 7-nanometer chip and a third-generation Neural Engine are found inside the iPhone 11. Apple claimed at the time of its release that the A13 Bionic was the fastest chip ever in a smartphone, having a 20% faster CPU and GPU than the A12. The A13’s Machine Learning Accelerators enable the CPU to perform over 1 trillion operations per second, and the Neural Engine is quicker than previous chips for real-time photo and video analysis.

An Intel modem chip with Gigabit-class LTE, 2×2 MIMO, and LAA, Wi-Fi 6 compatibility (802.11ax) with 2×2 MIMO, Bluetooth 5.0, Dual-SIM with eSIM, and an Apple-designed U1 Ultra Wideband chip that enhances spatial awareness and enables for improved indoor tracking are all included in the iPhone 11. The chip now supports directionally aware AirDrop suggestions in iOS 13.1, allowing you to drop files to someone you aim your iPhone at.

Is it worth the price tag?

So, is the iPhone 11 still worth buying? If you’ve got an iPhone older than the X and you’re looking to upgrade, I think the answer is yes. The camera is substantially improved, and you will get vastly better battery life than anything aside from X. That’s what most people care about, and Apple has really delivered here.
