FRESNO, California (KGPE) – Fall is in the air and in California’s Silicon Valley, that means one thing: “fresh apples.”

Right now, Apple is selling its trio of new iPhone models: The iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

The biggest change to the new line of phones is the iPhones’ photography and videography features, which take advantage of the devices’ new processors and camera systems.

iPhone 11 Key Features:

  • 12MP Standard wide-angle camera, 26mm equivalent, f/2.4 aperture OIS, and focus pixels
  • 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera, 13mm-equivalent, f/1.8 lens
  • 12MP telephoto camera, 52mm-equivalent, f/2 lens and OIS on the Pro and Pro Max
  • New Night mode for low-light shooting
  • Up to 4K/60fps Video with extended dynamic range and stabilization
  • 12MP front-facing camera with FaceID

The cheapest iPhone 11 will set you back $699, and goes up to $1,100 for the ProMax version.

It comes in colors like black, white, red, purple, yellow, and green.

The iPhone 11 also brings night mode photography to the iPhone, a feature available for about a year from Android smartphone makers like Google and Samsung.

A major con is that the new iPhones are still not 5G compatible or able to reverse charge your other devices.

Plus the storage on the new devices start at just 64GB, this could be a problem for those who store a lot of music, photos and videos.

Finally, the new iPhones come with just a 5W charger, the higher-end models have an 18W charger for faster charging but you have to pay extra for it.

Bottom line, if you’re not ready to pull the trigger on this new lineup, don’t forget the iPhone 8 and last year’s iPhone XR are still for sale…for significantly reduced prices.
