You will get an ultra-wide lens on both the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. You will get it in the Camera app as a 0.5x button. It will let you zoom out to see more and take wider shots, from 0.5x to 2x. The ultra-wide provides with an f/2.4 aperture with a 120-degree field of view.

The iPhone 11 Pro also has the same ‘Deep Fusion’ technology as the iPhone 11, as well as the identically advanced front-facing camera.

The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are capable of fast charging. They are the first iPhones ever to include an Apple 18W charger and Lightning to USB-C cable in the box.

The iPhone 11 Pro price in India starts at ₹ 99,900 for the variant with 64GB of storage while the iPhone 11 Pro Max price in India starts at ₹ 109,900 for the same variant.

Which One You Should Buy?

For most of you, the iPhone 11 will serve the purpose even if the Pro versions have some advanced features. Definitely, you will not get the triple-lens camera setup but you are going to get other powerful features like the ultra-powerful Bionic processor, Portrait mode and Smart HDR.

The price of the iPhone 11 is also low as compared to the last year’s iPhone XR. For the introductory price of ₹ 64,900, it will be certainly more alluring than the price of iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max. Also, if you need a good range of colours to choose from, the best option is iPhone 11. 

Even if the iPhone 11 Pro comes with all the high-end features, you still need to decide if those additional features are worth paying approx. 20k more or not. If you are looking for the smallest screen size, iPhone 11 Pro is for you.

In case, you want to have the biggest iPhone till date, in terms of storage as well as screen size, iPhone 11 Pro Max is your best bet. 

So now you can easily conclude if there is something for you in the soon to be launched 2019 iPhone lineup or not.
