Comparing iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro Characteristics

Apr 3, 2020

At Bad Apple, iPhone repair is among our top specialty services provided to clients. We’ve assisted numerous customers with a variety of damage types to their iPhones throughout the years, from basics like screen cracks or case issues to more significant or detailed issues that may have come up. One area this means our phone repair technicians must always remain current in, then: The latest and greatest in iPhone developments. Apple has put out numerous iterations of the iPhone, with new versions coming at least once every couple years, and we ensure that all our staff members are well-versed in the changes or new developments that come with each new model – the better to serve you anytime you have a need. The latest iPhone models out are the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro; here’s a quick comparison of these two items and their basic characteristics for anyone choosing between the two or simply looking for detailed information.


iPhone 11

The less expensive of the two models, the iPhone 11 is also the slightly more compact option. It comes with a dual camera system and an ultra-wide lens, allowing for users to take detailed panoramic photos. Like many recent iPhone models, it also comes with the ability to be submerged in water without damage – you can drop it up to two meters deep in water for as long as a half-hour without any problems.

In addition, the iPhone 11 uses an LCD display – this is a big difference between it and the 11 Pro, particularly for certain repair needs (more on this in a moment). It’s finished with a combination of aluminum and glass, which is very strong though slightly weaker than the finishing for the 11 Pro. Storage for the standard iPhone 11 is 256GB.

iPhone 11 Pro

The first of several differences between the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro is the size, but also the camera quality. The Pro comes with a three-camera system that includes a telephoto lens and zoom capabilities – many professional photographers use this phone often, as it provides pro-level quality. The Pro also uses a Super Retina XDR OLED display instead of LCD, which leads to a brighter display, particularly outdoors.

The Pro also withstands water submersion to a greater level than the original iPhone 11, and can be dropped in four meters of water for up to half an hour. It is finished with stainless steel and glass, and stores up to 512GB in the standard model.

Comparing Client Types

While both these models are excellent for a wide variety of clients, they tend to diverge in the types of clients they draw. Those who are planning to utilize the phone for any kind of professional photography or related use gravitate toward the 11 Pro for its more powerful camera system, while those who have no such needs often are more fixated on the standard iPhone 11 because it is more affordable.
