We’ve three‑upped ourselves.
Meet the first triple‑camera system to combine cutting‑edge technology with the legendary simplicity of iPhone. Capture up to four times more scene. Get beautiful images in drastically lower light. Shoot the highest‑quality video in a smartphone — then edit with the same tools you love for photos. You’ve never shot with anything like it.
iPhone 11 Pro lets you zoom from the Telephoto all the way out to the new Ultra Wide camera, for an impressive 4x optical zoom range.
We leveraged the wider field of view to let you see what’s happening outside the image frame — and simply tap to capture it. And there’s almost nothing between you and your subject except a new, Pro camera font. So you’re always fully immersed in the scene.
When we set out to design a pro-level camera system, we wanted the three cameras to work together seamlessly as one.
The fundamental challenge: Even though we used the same color system across all three sensors, different camera modules vary in terms of color and sensitivity. To allow for that, our engineers precisely calibrate each camera individually for things like white balance and exposure. Then they push it even further, pairing the three cameras and calibrating them again for module-to-module alignment.
Those calibrations are applied to every image you capture — in real time. It’s like taking raw images from three different cameras and processing them to achieve a consistent look and color. Except it happens in a split second. Getting those details right, on the fly, as you switch from Telephoto to Wide to Ultra Wide, takes the kind of computational power only A13 Bionic provides.
We also wanted each of the cameras to be accessible with a single tap, all the time. No matter whether you’re shooting photos, portraits, videos, time lapse, or slo-mo. And we were determined to have beautifully smooth transitions from one camera to the next.
All this took intense collaboration between the sensor team, the camera software team, and the chip team. The result is a shooting experience unlike any other.
Take it all in.
When you just can’t squeeze everything into the frame, zoom out. Because the new Ultra Wide camera captures four times more scene than ever. It’s like stepping back — way back — without taking a step. Bring on those mountain ranges, soaring cathedrals, and iconic skylines.
High tech meets low light.
From dimly lit restaurants to moonlit beaches, the new Night mode uses intelligent software and A13 Bionic to deliver low‑light shots never before possible on iPhone. And it all happens automatically. You can also experiment with manual controls to dial in even more detail and less noise.
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.
Power to the portrait.
With three cameras working together, you can fit more in your portraits than ever. iOS 13 adds the High‑Key Light Mono effect for studio‑style monochromes. And Portrait Lighting lets you control the intensity of light to flatter your subject — just like you would in a studio. How beautiful is that?
And you thought your photos couldn’t get any better.
Next-generation Smart HDR uses advanced algorithms to finesse highlight and shadow detail in your image. And now it leverages machine learning to recognize faces in your shot and intelligently relight them. That means iPhone 11 Pro can automatically fine-tune detail in both the subject and the background. Even some DSLR cameras can’t do that.
Say you’re taking photos and you see something you’ve got to catch on video. With QuickTake, there’s no need to switch modes. Just leave your finger on the shutter to start recording. Want to keep the recording going? Swipe right. To take burst photos, swipe left.
The new 12MP TrueDepth camera lets you take superfun slow-motion selfie videos at 120 fps, or shoot in 4K at 60 fps. For stills, the camera now automatically zooms out when you rotate your iPhone, so you can get your whole crew in the shot. Yes, even selfies can be Pro.
The Super Retina XDR display boasts not one but two new record levels of brightness and understands when to use them. It hits up to 800 nits when you’re out in the sun — great for shooting and making selects on the go — and up to 1200 nits when you’re viewing extreme dynamic range content. It’s like having a Pro Display XDR on your iPhone.

The new Super Retina XDR display is our best display ever in an iPhone. Not only is it brighter and smarter, it’s also up to 15 percent more power efficient.
How did we improve performance and efficiency at the same time? Since each pixel emits its own light, the display can turn off individual pixels to produce true blacks. On the flip side, we improved communication between the display driver and the display, used a more efficient OLED material, and optimized the panel design to reach two new record levels of brightness — one in sunlight and one while viewing HDR photos and movies.
So if you’re at home watching a thriller with a fireball exploding against the night sky, the Super Retina XDR display intelligently illuminates the fireball-related pixels up to 1200 nits, while the pixels around it stay deep black. This ability to identify the brightest parts of the display and drive them to a higher peak brightness helps iPhone 11 Pro deliver a stunning picture like you’d see on our Pro Display XDR.
And because the display is more efficient, it contributes to longer battery life. Buying you some extra time to enjoy those special features.
We custom‑built A13 Bionic with a focus on machine learning across the entire chip — enabling experiences that simply aren’t found on any other smartphone. In fact, it’s so fast, so powerful, and so intelligent, it’s years ahead of any other chip. Which gives you an unfair advantage.
The fastest chip ever in a smartphone
We built A13 Bionic to deliver unparalleled speed and advanced machine learning. It’s what allows iPhone 11 Pro 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 Pro 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.
Our most dramatic leap in battery life ever.
Delivering up to five more hours of battery life isn’t just about building a better battery.1 It’s about making the entire system work together. That means engineering everything — the battery, the chip, the display, the software — to give you more performance with greater efficiency.
The Super Retina XDR display is up to 15 percent more power efficient than the display in iPhone Xs. iOS 13 takes advantage of the custom-built performance controller to route tasks throughout the chip in the most efficient way possible. And A13 Bionic leverages four custom high-efficiency cores for everyday tasks.
Another important piece of the puzzle is the Apple-designed power management unit (PMU). Think of the PMU as an orchestra, and A13 Bionic as its conductor. The chip tells the PMU exactly where and when to distribute power across iPhone, and the PMU delivers it with expert precision. The result? Increased performance only when it’s needed, which helps to preserve power.
All because we don’t want you to worry about battery life.
