Apple announces 13th generation iPhone 11 equipped with A13 Bionic – the fastest chip in a smartphone
Apple finally unveiled the next-generation iPhone 11, delivering innovations that make the world’s most popular smartphone even more powerful, improving the features people use the most throughout their day.
Precision Design and Display
iPhone 11 features the toughest glass ever in a smartphone, rated IP68 for water resistance up to 2 meters for up to 30 minutes and is protected against accidental spills from common liquids such as coffee and soda.
iPhone 11 comes in six new stunning colours including purple, green, yellow, black, white and PRODUCT(RED).
The 6.1-inch all-screen Liquid Retina display features wide colour support and True Tone for more natural viewing experience while enjoying the quick Haptic Touch deeply integrated across iOS 13.
A13 Bionic — Fastest Chip in a Smartphone
A13 Bionic, what Apple claims to be the fastest chip ever in a smartphone, provides unparalleled performance for every task iPhone 11 handles and features up to 20 per cent faster CPU and GPU than A12. A13 Bionic is built for machine learning, with a faster Neural Engine for real-time photo and video analysis, and new Machine Learning Accelerators that allow the CPU to deliver more than 1 trillion operations per second.

iPhone 11 has a dual-camera system with all-new Ultra-Wide and Wide cameras. It can shoot beautifully sharp video, with both the Ultra-Wide and Wide cameras supporting 4K video with extended dynamic range for more highlight detail and cinematic video stabilisation.
The dual-camera system lets users easily zoom between each camera while Audio Zoom matches the audio to the video framing for more dynamic sound. With iOS 13, powerful video editing tools are accessible to everyone with the ability to rotate, crop, increase exposure and apply filters to videos instantly all within the new, easy-to-use Camera interface.
With iPhone 11, the all-new Ultra-Wide camera fundamentally changes the photography experience by capturing four times more scene and is great for taking landscape or architecture photos, tight shots and more. A new Wide sensor with 100 per cent Focus Pixels enables Night mode, delivering huge improvements to photos captured in indoor and outdoor low-light environments, resulting in brighter images with natural colours and reduced noise. Both cameras work together to enable Portrait mode photos for people, pets, objects and more.

Next-generation Smart HDR uses advanced machine learning to capture more natural-looking images with beautiful highlight and shadow detail on the subject and in the background.

Expressive selfie videos take on a whole new look on the TrueDepth camera, now recording 4K video at up to 60 fps and 120 fps slow-motion (which Apple calls “slofie”).

- U1 chip – Ultra-Wideband technology improving AirDrop performance
