iPhone 11 came with a few minor changes however the biggest change is its Camera. iPhone XI is packed with two lens and three-lens camera with a square look at the rear of the phone. iPhone 11 is no doubt coming with better picture-taking capabilities though it spoiled the looks. The selfie camera got a boost from 7MP to 12MP. The new iPhone 11 has three 12MP cameras at the back. One of the lenses offers a 120-degree field-of-view. A laser-powered 3D camera that is installed on iPhone 11 is now reserved for iPhone 2020.
iPhone 11 Battery Life
The new iPhone XI has a 25% bigger battery than the previous versions. As per the press release, the iPhone 11 is packed with a 3200mAh battery instead of 2658mAh, the iPhone 11 Max is loaded with 3500mAh lifted from 3174mAh, and the iPhone 11 is powered with 3000mAh.
The charging of iPhone 11 is stuck at 5W slow charging though iPhone 11 Pro Max made it to 18W fast charging. The iPhone 11 is capable of Qi wireless charging.
iPhone 2019 is not offering 5G technology. That means we will still need to wait for iPhone 2020 to gain access to 5G technology.
iPhone 11 Storage
When we talk about iPhone storage, iPhone 11 is launched with 64GB, 256GB, 512GB storage, though it was rumored to support up to 1TB storage.

The all-new iPhone 11 is released with super capabilities of taking underwater pictures. Not just taking a picture in the rain but taking your phone in 2 Meters of water for 30 minutes in the swimming pool is possible.
Compatible With Apple Pencil
The new Apple 11 is all set to support Apple Pencil. As per the design, the iPhone 11 series works well with Apple Pencil. The pencil can be charged over the wireless charging and is compatible with other Apple devices.
Reverse Wireless Charging
iPhone 11 series was supposed to offer reverse wireless charging however it isn’t compatible as of now. That means, unlike Samsung Galaxy smartphones, the iPhone 11 is not going to charge your AirPods and other wireless charging enabled phones if we put them on the reverse side of the iPhone XI series.
New Apple iPhone 11 came with OLED and LCD displays screens for crystal clear visibility. LCD screens were already in place with the iPhone 10 series however they have improvised the display quality with the OLED picture.
