Apple launched the new iPhone 11 on September 10 and the first tests were published last week. This test iPhone 11 overview can help you with the purchase of a smartphone.
The improvements of the cameras
Apple has improved the photographic capabilities of the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro.
A Night Mode has been added, with which you can photograph in dark light conditions and the HDR results are improved. With Deep Fusion you can take 24 megapixel photos for large prints. The portrait mode of the iPhone 11 Pro can also be used with the standard wide angle lens and the selfie cameras are now 12 megapixels.
All models have an extra camera with an ultra wide angle lens. This lens is equivalent to a 13 mm lens in 35 mm format. Ideal for landscape and interior photography. Furthermore, the 52 mm telephoto lens of the iPhone 11 Pro is made brighter, so that you can take better photos in low light.
