CUPERTINO, Calif.—Apple on Tuesday announced the iPhone 11, the latest device in Apple’s mega-popular smartphone series and the follow-up to last year’s iPhone XR. It’ll be available starting at $699 outright.
The new device comes in an anodized aluminum and glass body that Apple claims is its most durable phone design to date and comes in six new colors: purple, white, yellow, green, black, and red. It comes with a 6.1-inch version of Apple’s “liquid Retina” display and improved spatial audio with Dolby Atmos support.
The iPhone 11 also features a new and updated A13 Bionic chip. Unsurprisingly, Apple says the latter will include the fastest CPU and GPU in any smartphone—we’ll have to benchmark that for ourselves, but given the top-shelf power of existing A12 Bionic, it should still be more than fast enough for most people’s needs.
As months of leaks suggested, the big new feature of the iPhone 11 is its new dual-camera system.
This is a developing story, and we will update it as more details become available. Apple’s event is still ongoing, but you can follow everything as it happens in the Ars liveblog.
