Light work.Apple iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max review
Even with a new name, the thing that immediately jumps out from these iPhones is their triple-camera setup. Still, if you can appreciate some subtle differences then benefits await, including a speedier Face Unlock and Super Retina XDR display that is perfect for the new-in-iOS 13 Dark Mode.
The one change that everyone will love is some extra battery life, and in our brief time testing these phones, they didn't disappoint. The triple cameras are powerful and flexible across different photography needs, but Apple's lack of power-user settings in the main app is more glaring than ever. These are "among the most powerful smartphones money can buy right now," but at more than $1,000, they leave the mainstream iPhone 11 as a better choice for most people.
For less money...iPhone 11 review: You might not need the Pro
The iPhone 11 takes almost everything that makes the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max special and squeezes it down into a package that's $50 less than last year's cheap model.
