The new iPhone 11 is practically an S revision to last year’s popular iPhone XR. From the top, it appears just the same. It has the exact same layout, the exact same screen size, the exact same huge bezels, and same massive front camera bulge. The only thing that sets this apart is the way it’s available.
At first glance, it appears to be an iPhone, but upon iphone 11 closer inspection you’ll find out that it’s actually an iPhone version of the much more expensive iPhone XR, which means it has a different design. It has the exact same face and front glass dimensions, so if you were worried that the new design was going to look nothing like previous iPhones, you’d be wrong. The company fooled around with the “s” key on the home key on the iPhone and placed it on the top left corner instead, but you can’t really see any difference in the actual phone itself. What you do see though, is a brand new feature – the facial recognition system.
It’s not entirely clear how this feature works, but since it’s been featured on previous smartphones (the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4), I have no doubt that we’ll soon see it on the iPhone 11 as well. Facial recognition is a way for Apple to allow users to use their own images to unlock their iPhones’ screen with a wave of the hand (or, in some cases, a tap on the face). It may seem like a feature that’s been left out by Apple (particularly since the iPhone isn’t waterproof), but the company has long suspected that people would be less likely to drop their phones if it knew that they could upload their own pictures to the device first. Now, with the iPhone 11, this functionality may finally see the light of day.
When it comes to camera features, the iPhone 11 supports both portrait and landscape mode. Portrait mode allows users to take photos in the mode that the camera would appear in. You can make the background of your photo look like a canvas or make the foreground of your photo look like a still frame. Landscape mode allows you to take photos in various landscape orientations.
One new feature that wasn’t expected to make an appearance on the iPhone 11 is the facial recognition system. This is a feature that was first introduced with the iPhone 3GS and allows you to simply draw or wave your facial features like you would in portrait mode, and have those features recognize and lock onto you as you turn to look at things on the screen. The iPhone 11 also supports Apple’s Voice Recognition for turning on your iPhone, checking your email, searching within Maps, activating Siri, and much more. This is actually the biggest feature that Apple has added to their camera system. It makes using the iPhone easier and faster no matter what you are doing.
Of course, one of the most exciting additions to the iPhone 11 is the Night mode. The iPhone 11 has two different modes: Day and Night modes. In the Day mode, you are able to view the scenery around you in great detail. With the Night mode, you are able to see everything in low light settings such as your home, outdoors, night clubs, and more.
