iPhone 11 Battery Life Up To Five Hours Longer Than Predecessor
Apple recently launched the iPhone 11, which comes with a whole host of new gadgets, including fancy cameras, faster face recognition and the A13 chip - the 'fastest GPU ever in a smartphone' (whatever that means).
But there's no use in having all these fancy new additions if the thing dies on you while you're on the bus or at the zoo - so it's just as well the new models have up to five hours more battery life than the iPhone X.
Apple claim the iPhone 11 will have an hour's more battery life than the iPhone XR, while the iPhone 11 Pro and the 11 Pro Max will have up to four and five hours more battery life than their immediate predecessors, according to USA Today.
This enables the Pro model to offer 18 hours of video playback and 65 hours of audio playback, while the Pro Max can muster 20 hours of video playback and up to 80 hours of audio playback.
Plus, once you have drained all the juice after a heavy Pokémon Angry Farmville Tinder sesh, you won't have to wait as long for it to recharge. That's because for the first time Apple has upgraded the charger itself for the Pro and the Pro Max, but not for the basic iPhone 11 - though can any iPhone 11 really be considered 'basic'?
Beyond the improved battery, the new camera features have been turning heads too.
The phone's 'night mode' lets you take photos in the dark without using the camera's flash. Instead, an AI automatically brightens snaps for you. The nifty innovation even allows you to add a hint of light to pics you've already taken.
The boffins over at Apple say the new feature works automatically whenever it senses a photo has been taken in a darker environment.
Speaking about the new phone, Apple exec Kaiann Drance said: "We determine the image fusion time and use adaptive bracketing based on what we see in preview. So, shorter frames if you have subject motion or longer frames if you have deep shadows.
"Then we intelligently fuse images together, reducing motion and blur."
The iPhone 11 has two cameras on the back of each device, while the Pro and Pro Max have three: a wide camera, an ultra-wide camera and a telephoto camera.
The phones also boast a slo-mo setting for the front-facing camera, so that you can take slo-mo selfies... Or 'slofies', as Apple is dubbing them.
