Apple iPhone 11 vs 11 Pro vs 11 Pro Max: Major differences (and which should you buy?)


At the 2019 Apple event, we saw the launch of three new iPhone devices. Just like the previous edition, there is the main flagship, the Max, and the cheaper iPhone. But what exactly distinguishes these devices? Its certainly not just the names. Let’s take a closer look at their differences.

Design and Display

First thing we noticed was the difference in physical appearance and size. For the iPhone 11, the cheaper model, which measures 6.1 inches, Apple continues to rely on the LED screen, while it equipped the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max with OLED screens. The iPhone 11 Pro is also slightly smaller than the iPhone 11, it measures a 5.8-inch display.

If you’re a fan of big screen, then you should go for the Pro Max model. As the name suggests, it is the largest of the three newly launched iPhones. It features a 6.5-inch display.

In terms of design, there is not much difference.



This is where you begin to notice major difference. The iPhone 11 has just two cameras, the Pro versions (Pro & Pro Max) have three.

The iPhone 11 is equipped with two 12-megapixel cameras, one is a wide-angle lens (26 mm, f / 1.8), the second camera has the same resolution and an ultra-wide-angle lens (13 mm, f / 2.4). The Pro and Pro Max models features both cameras (wide-angle lens & ultra-wide-angle lens) available on the iPhone 11. They also come with a third 12-megapixel camera installed on them – a telephoto lens (52 mm, f / 2.0).

Also, Apple announced a new night mode. With it, users will be able to take great bright pictures even without natural light. Although it hasn’t been launched yet, there is the Deep fusion feature which is just like the Google pixel. With this feature, the iPhone 11 camera takes nine photos and puts them all together to create a single photo. This is to achieve high quality.  

The three iPhones will rely on the Bionic A13 processor, and according to Apple, the bionic A13 processor should offer more performance and be superior to all Android smartphones.

The iPhone 11 is the cheapest of the pack, and comes with the least features – suitable for those who have a limited budget. The iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max models are the real deal – with improved camera feature (Night mode, ultra-wide….). While the iPhone 11 Pro Max is more expensive and might look like it comes with better features and specs, its difference with the Pro model is quite slim. So, you might want to consider going for the Pro model to save money and still get the best deal.
