Apple provided iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max review units to members of the media following its September 10 event, and today, those reviews were published, giving us some insight into the new devices.
Apple this afternoon highlighted several of the reviews, focusing on the positives of the iPhones, including the upgraded camera tech and the improved battery life.
Apple shared key passages from sites that include TechCrunch, The Verge, Mashable, Refinery29, Engadget, Tom’s Guide, Esquire, CNBC, GQ UK, 9News, Hardware Zone Singapore, and New Straits Time.
“The best new feature here is Night mode, which pretty impressively brightens dark photos … it’s automatic in low-light settings. You can even use it as a flashlight. When you shine it at something dark, the screen will display it with more light than you can see with your own eye.”
The Verge called the new devices the “most capable phones” ever made.
“[iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max] are some of the most well-balanced, most capable phones Apple — or anyone — has ever made. They have excellent battery life, processors that should keep them relevant for years to come, absolutely beautiful displays and a new camera system that generally outperforms every other phone, which should get even better with a promised software update later this fall.”
While Apple highlighted the most positive bits of each review, on the whole, most praised the new iPhone anyway. Some reviews, though, did see the updates as mostly iterative without a whole lot of innovative new features with the exception of the camera improvements.
