I just spent some time with Apple’s new iPhone 11, the successor to the company’s popular iPhone XR. It’s arriving on September 20th, priced at $699. While the iPhone 11 looks visually identical to the iPhone XR from the front, it’s the rear of the device that’s really changing this year.
Apple is adding a dual-camera system with an additional 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera that lets you pull back to a 5x field of view so you can see more in the frame. Those cameras aren’t in a separate camera bump anymore. Instead, the rear glass of the phone now incorporates the camera modules. It’s still a camera bump, but it’s all a single piece of glass now. It’s quite striking, especially on the white model.
