iPhone 11 and 11 Pro

iPhone 11 Pro Midnight Green

iPhone 11 Pro (Max): the first iPhone with a triple camera

The Apple iPhone 11 Pro carries that name for a reason. It's simply the best. The iPhone 11 Pro has the longest battery life, the most powerful A13 chip, and a new camera. In addition, the iPhone 11 Pro also has a triple camera. It has a 12-megapixel wide-angle, ultra-wide angle, and telephoto lens. You can also take the most beautiful photos in the dark, thanks to the new night mode. It comes in an exciting new color: Midnight Green.

iPhone 11 Green

iPhone 11: improved 12MP selfie camera

The Apple iPhone 11 again comes in 6 striking colors, including mint green, lavender, and light yellow. The iPhone 11 has a dual camera system: a 12-megapixel wide angle and ultra wide angle camera. In addition, the selfie camera has also been improved. From now on, you can take razor-sharp selfies with the 12-megapixel camera. You can even take selfies in slow motion, a so-called 'slofie'. And thanks to the powerful A13 chip, you can do everything faster than ever before.

iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max

Apple iPhone Xs Gold

Apple iPhone Xs: most powerful iPhone with the best camera

Get the iPhone Xs. No task is too hard for the A12 Bionic chip. Like the iPhone X, the Apple iPhone Xs has a new edgeless design. You can unlock it with Face ID, which is a little bit faster than on the iPhone X. The Apple iPhone Xs has a 5.8-inch OLED Super Retina display, and the dual camera lets you take the most beautiful pictures. A new feature in portrait mode is that you can now adjust the depth-of-field yourself, even after taking a picture. That way, pictures in portrait mode look even more professional.

Apple iPhone Xs Max Silver

Apple iPhone Xs Max: largest screen on iPhone ever

Did the iPhone Xs get you excited, but would you prefer to have one size bigger? You can! Instead of a 5.8-inch display, the Apple iPhone Xs Max has a 6.5-inch OLED Super Retina display. This is the largest screen on an iPhone to date. It's great if you love to watch movies and series on your iPhone, or when you often edit photos and videos on your device. Afraid the iPhone Xs Max is too big for you? The iPhone Xs Max is about as large as an iPhone 8 Plus with a 5.5-inch screen. How's that possible, you ask? Because the edges are more narrow, you can fit more screen on the same size phone.

iPhone Xr and iPhone X

Apple iPhone Xr Yellow

Apple iPhone Xr: iPhone with the best battery life

Together with the iPhone Xs, Apple announced the iPhone Xr. Don't necessarily want the latest OLED Super Retina screen? In that case, the iPhone Xr is a good phone for you. Despite the iPhone Xr not having a dual camera, the pictures can compete with those made with the iPhone Xs. The iPhone Xr also has a portrait mode, and you can adjust the depth-of-field yourself. The iPhone Xr doesn't have an OLED screen, but it does have a Liquid Retina LCD screen. This is the most beautiful LCD screen on an iPhone yet. Thanks to this more affordable screen, you don't need to pay as much for an iPhone Xr. The most notable thing? The fact that you can choose from no less than 6 different colors.

Apple iPhone X Silver

Apple iPhone X: first iPhone with bezel-less design

The Apple iPhone X was the first iPhone with a completely new design: an edge-to-edge screen with round corners and no home button. Do you like the design, but don't want to pay the price of an iPhone Xs? Get this model instead. The iPhone X is the first iPhone with an OLED screen. This screen provides better contrasts and the brightest colors. Since the iPhone X doesn't have a home button, you no longer use your fingerprint to unlock your iPhone. What now? The iPhone X introduced Face ID, which lets you unlock your iPhone just by looking at it. In addition, you can take the most beautiful pictures, and portrait mode works for both the front and rear camera.

iPhone 8 (Plus) and iPhone 7 (Plus)

Apple iPhone 8 (Plus) Gold

Apple iPhone 8 (Plus): the first wirelessly rechargeable iPhone

Together with the iPhone X, Apple announced the iPhone 8 (Plus). The iPhone 8 (Plus) is the successor to the iPhone 7, and it's the last iPhone available with the recognizable 'familiar' iPhone design with the home button. One difference with the iPhone 7 is that the back of the iPhone 8 is made of glass instead of aluminum. The glass rear also allows for wireless charging, which wasn't possible before. The Apple iPhone 8 (Plus) is also the first iPhone with a True Tone screen. This means the white balance adjusts to the ambient light, so the colors always appear natural. And everything you do happens super fast, thanks to the A11 Bionic chip.

Apple iPhone 7 (Plus) Silver

Apple iPhone 7 (Plus): first iPhone with portrait mode

The appearance of the iPhone 7 (Plus) still looks a lot like the design of the iPhone 6s (Plus), but the iPhone 7 does have a number of new features. Perhaps the most notable was the lack of the familiar mini jack for your headphones. Lightning is the new main connector for peripherals, including your headphones. To connect your old headphones, you need to use a Lightning to mini jack connector. In addition, the iPhone 7 also received a new A10 Fusion chip and improved speakers. Do you love taking pictures? The iPhone 7 Plus is the first iPhone that introduced portrait mode. It was also the first iPhone with a dual camera.

Conclusion

Which iPhone you choose is personal. Are you looking for a basic model to send texts and make phone calls? The iPhone 7 is a good choice for you. Are you looking for a smaller size? The iPhone 7, 8, or Xs (not the Plus version) might be suitable. Is taking photos the most important thing for you? The iPhone Xs and iPhone 11 Pro have the best cameras. But the cameras on the Xr and iPhone 11 won't disappoint you either. If you just want the best of the best, there is only one real winner: the iPhone 11 Pro. Do you want the new design but not the huge price tag? The Apple iPhone Xr and 11 have a better price point, thanks to the more affordable LCD screen.
