Want something a bit more from your iPhone? You’re in luck with the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, as they feature improved spec including a more high-end rear camera that can compete with the very best.
It’ll cost more than the iPhone 11 (which is probably the best phone for the average iPhone user), but if you’re after the very best iPhone, the Pro range is what you want.
Other than the obvious size, there’s very little difference between the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, which is why we grouped them together in our best phone roundup.
Screen: It’s the biggest decision you’ll have to make. Will you go for the 5.8-inch 11 Pro (which is easier to use one-handed) or the larger 6.5-inch 11 Pro Max (which is great for movies and gaming)? Either way, you get a great display which packs a colourful punch.
Battery life: The battery life on the 11 Pro series is slightly longer than the last few generations of the iPhone, but don’t expect anything game changing here when it comes to the length your phone will last for.
Camera: Apple has put most of its focus into the rear cameras on this device, and while the design of the rear of the phone has been controversial these cameras can create some truly stunning photography that competes with the very best camera phones.
Mini verdict: You’ll have to spend a bit extra to get the iPhone 11 Pro, but it’s well worth it if you want a phone that sports iOS 13 but comes with top-end features.
