After months of rumors and speculation, the iPhone 11 is finally here. In this week's Apple Core wrap, let's see how the new phones stack up compared to last year's models and see what extras you may get if you're upgrading from an older iPhone. We won't know for sure which is the "best" of the new bunch until after we've tested and reviewed them, so stay tuned. But in the meantime, here's what we know.

Apple has changed up its naming convention this year and its new 2019 flagship phone is now known as the 11 Pro (and 11 Pro Max) rather than the roman numeral XS.

Phones - Front - Differences - Pro - Phone

Looking at both phones from the front, there's no obvious differences between the 11 Pro and the phone it replaces, the XS. Size-wise, they're the same with a 5.8-inch display, or 6.5-inches for the Max models. The new phones have a super retina XDR display, which is still OLED, but Apple says it's brighter: 800 nits in bright sunlight and up to 1,200 nits when viewing content like HDR10 movies. The XS Max screen had a maximum of 725 nits, by comparison.

The iPhone 11 is the same 6.1-inch size as last year's iPhone XR and still has a LCD screen.

Colors this year are nothing too crazy on the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max: There's gold, space grey, silver and midnight green. The back is now a textured matte glass, which may be easier to hold than the glossy versions. The iPhone 11 gets purple and green, replacing the coral and blue options on the XR.
