Two weeks ago, Apple launched its newest iPhone, which comes in 3 variations: the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Should you upgrade? Below we’ve listed a few pros/cons to upgrading to the newest iPhone.
- “Affordable” (not really, but better than the iPhone X) – This year’s iPhone 11 starts at a more reasonable $699 unlocked, compared to last year’s iPhone X which started at $999.
- Improved cameras – The iPhone 11 series has one of the best sets of phone cameras available on the market – including a night mode like Google’s, and wide-angle pictures.
- Improved chipset and battery life – The A13 chip is one of the fastest and most efficient chips available right now, also helping provide another hour of battery life compared to the previous models.
- Easy backup and transfer of data from older iPhone – Transferring all your data and apps from your old iPhone is quite quick and easy through iTunes.
- Storage size – Like most iPhones before it, starts at only 64 GB of storage and does not allow for a microSD card or storage upgrade after purchasing.
- 5W charger – The iPhone 11 has the power for fast-charging, but you have to purchase the 18W charger separately.
- Not a big jump in capability over the X/XR/XS – A new camera and improved chipset are the headline changes to the iPhone, but it seems to end there. If you are on the fence on upgrading, consider waiting another year, as there will definitely be more improvements in 2020.
If you are looking for a new phone and the iPhone is not your style, or you are looking to move away from the iPhone, you can also consider the Pixel 4 by Google. Be sure to keep an eye out for the Pixel 4 unveiling on October 15th, 2019 in New York, alongside some other Google devices, such as the Google Nest Mini.
