A new dual‑camera system captures more of what you see and love. The fastest chip ever in a smartphone and all‑day battery life let you do more and charge less. And the highest‑quality video in a smartphone, so your memories look better than ever.
It just got a whole lot harder to take a bad photo.
All‑new dual‑camera system.
Take your photos from wide to ultra wide. A redesigned interface uses the new Ultra Wide camera to show you what’s happening outside the frame — and lets you capture it. Shoot and edit videos as easily as you do photos. It’s the world’s most popular camera, now with a whole new perspective.
Compare camera system with iPhone 11 Pro
iPhone 11 Pro has the same Wide and Ultra Wide cameras, along with a new Telephoto camera. This triple‑camera system gives you a combined four times optical zoom range for more framing options.
Kick your video up a notch. Over a smidge. Or down a hair.
Shoot and edit the highest-quality video in a smartphone.iPhone 11 shoots beautifully sharp 4K video at 60 fps across all its cameras. The Ultra Wide camera captures four times more scene, so it’s perfect for action shots like your dog catching a frisbee. If you’re recording a performance — say, your kid’s piano recital — when you zoom in, the audio zooms too. And now you can edit videos as easily as you do photos.
“OK, everyone, scooch out a bit.”
New Ultra Wide camera.
Go big — the new Ultra Wide camera captures four times more scene. Think breathtaking landscapes that go on forever. Capturing the entire stage and crowd at a music festival. And vacation shots that show the whole family — including the views you traveled 11,000 miles for.
Introducing Night mode.
Shooting in low light doesn’t have to be a shot in the dark. Night mode is a new feature that turns on automatically for low‑light photos like you’ve never seen. There’s no need for flash, colors are more natural, and photos are brighter.
The power behind beautiful night shots.
Getting great shots in low light is one of photography’s perpetual challenges. The shutter needs to stay open longer, which can lead to blur. Then there’s the tricky task of keeping detail in the shadows without overexposing lighter areas. And making sure colors stay natural‑looking.
With iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, a new Wide camera sensor works with intelligent software and A13 Bionic to let you do what was never possible on iPhone: get beautiful, detailed images in drastically lower light.
Night mode comes on automatically when needed — say, in a candlelit restaurant. When you tap the shutter, the camera takes multiple images while optical image stabilization steadies the lens.
Then the camera software goes to work. It aligns images to correct for movement. It discards the sections with too much blur and fuses sharper ones. It adjusts contrast so everything stays in balance. It fine‑tunes colors so they look natural. Then it intelligently de‑noises and enhances details to produce the final image.
It all adds up to night shots that stand apart — with more detail, less noise, and an authentic sense of time and place.
Take portraits to new places.
With new kinds of portraits and more lighting controls, the dual cameras in iPhone 11 work together to create stunning images. And Portrait mode now works with everything you love to shoot — that includes your best friends, two‑legged or four.
The High-Key Light Mono effect in iOS 13 transforms your portraits into beautiful, studio‑style monochromes. And Portrait Lighting Control lets you create the look you want by changing the intensity of light on your subjects.
Thanks to machine learning, Smart HDR is more intelligent than ever. It recognizes people and treats them differently from the rest of the shot. So faces have beautiful highlights, shadows, and natural‑looking skin tones. And that stunning sunset in the background still looks gorgeous.
Go from pics to video faster than a speeding toddler.
Start shooting video instantly with QuickTake.
Take a video simply by holding the shutter while in photo mode. Then swipe to the right to continue recording. If you’re shooting outdoors, A13 Bionic can use machine learning to automatically track a moving subject.
Slo‑mo your selfie.
Introducing the slofie.
Everything looks cooler at 120 fps, even if you’re just saying cheese, waving hi, or tossing your hair in the breeze. And now you can add more of everything to your selfies thanks to the new 12MP TrueDepth camera. Just turn your iPhone to landscape and the camera automatically zooms out to fit more in.

A chip that’s all Pro.
Both iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro have the fastest chip ever in a smartphone.
A13 Bionic is so powerful, everything you do is fast and fluid. It also works in the most power‑efficient way possible, so your battery lasts longer. In fact, A13 Bionic is so advanced, it’s years ahead of the pack.
It takes a ton of processing power to shoot 4K video at 60 fps.
We built A13 Bionic to deliver unparalleled speed and advanced machine learning. It’s what allows iPhone 11 to power through processor‑intensive tasks. Shooting 4K video at 60 fps in extended dynamic range, for instance, is like a firehose of information hitting the video encoder at once. Processing it would be a challenge for most chips. But A13 rips right through it.
Think of video as a series of frames. Thanks to incredibly fast camera sensors, iPhone 11 is able to produce 120 frames per second, alternating between standard exposure and short exposure frames.
The image signal processor and video encoders analyze each of those frames in the moment to capture as much detail as possible. To take it even further, the Neural Engine uses real‑time machine learning to optimize the different components of the scene. For example, it might relight the person in the foreground, while reducing noise and enhancing color in the sky. It all happens instantly and automatically.
Producing the highest‑quality video in a smartphone isn’t easy. But thanks to the superpowerful A13 Bionic, you’d never know it.
“Look Mom, no thumbs.” Face ID is easier and more secure than Touch ID.
The most secure facial authentication in a smartphone.
Face ID lets you unlock your iPhone instantly, and it’s even more secure than Touch ID. With just a glance you can sign in to apps, access accounts, and pay with Apple Pay. And setting it up is quick and simple.
iPhone 11 privacy.
Every feature in iPhone is designed to protect your personal information.
Face ID doesn’t store or share your photo. When you send an iMessage or make a FaceTime call, your data is encrypted. And Maps tells you where you’re going without sharing where you’ve been.
To Face ID, you’re just a number. And that’s a good thing.
Every Apple product is engineered to protect your privacy. That’s why Face ID doesn’t store or share your photo. Instead, advanced technologies accurately map the geometry of your face to confirm your identity.
Here’s how it works. When you first set up Face ID, the TrueDepth camera system projects 30,000 invisible dots and reads the pattern on your face with an infrared camera. A13 Bionic then builds your unique depth map, converting those angles and curves into a mathematical representation. This becomes your master key, and it’s encrypted and protected in the Secure Enclave on your device. It doesn’t leave your iPhone or get backed up to iCloud or Apple servers.
Then, when you unlock your phone (or sign in to an app or use Apple Pay), Face ID performs the same process, projecting the dots and comparing them with your stored data. If there’s a match, your identity is confirmed. Face ID even adapts to changes in your appearance. And it’s attention‑aware, so it only unlocks your iPhone when you look directly at it.
All this makes Face ID the most secure authentication ever in a smartphone. And now Face ID is even faster and easier to use, working at more angles and distances than ever.
Share. Find. Play. More precisely than ever.
Ultra Wideband technology comes to iPhone.
The new Apple‑designed U1 chip uses Ultra Wideband technology for spatial awareness — allowing iPhone 11 to understand its precise location relative to other nearby U1‑equipped Apple devices.3 Think GPS at the scale of your living room.
