Apple announces iPhone 11 (Pro)

Major smartphone manufacturers introduce new models on a yearly cadence. Camera upgrades tend to be a major focus, with little else apparently to differentiate new models from old ones. Often, what seem like small, incremental upgrades can have significant impact on photo and video quality. The iPhone XS, for example, dramatically improved image quality in high contrast scenes thanks to the sensor's ability to capture 'inter-frames' - short exposures in between longer ones - to improve dynamic range and noise. Similarly, 4K video was improved with multi-frame HDR capture.

Last week, Apple announced numerous updates to the cameras in the iPhone 11, some of which will inevitably be seen as attempts to catch up to capabilities of contemporary Android offerings. But, taken together, we think they stack up to meaningful upgrades that potentially make an already very capable camera one of the most compelling ones on the market.
