iPhone 11和iPhone 11 Pro

A few weeks ago on my podcast,你们推测的概念特性ar’s new iPhones, I said that “iCamera” would be a far more apt name than “iPhone”. MG Siegler, writing about Apple’s event last week,had the same thought:

iPhone现在正式是相机。我的意思是,它一直是相机很长一段时间。世界上最受欢迎的相机,因为苹果很快就指出每年,十年。但现在它真的是一个相机,因为今天的主题演讲明确了。iPhone 11和iPhone 11 Pro的演示的关键部分都是关于相机的。菲尔席勒在他的部分中说:“我知道你在等什么,我也是。我们来谈谈相机。毫无疑问,我最喜欢的关于iPhone的一部分。“

它感觉就像苹果不是那么绑在自己的遗产品牌中 - 更多的是,他们会重命名这件事。

当然,苹果不是真的这样做。但是,苹果花了iPhone 11和iPhone 11 Pro谈论他们的相机的绝大部分时间。他们花了没有时间 - 不是一个词 - 谈电话。如果他们谈论电话,那就很奇怪。这可能是2007年到今天的景观的最大变化。然后,介绍原来的iPhone,史蒂夫乔布斯花了很多时间谈论电话和语音邮件,几乎没有时间在相机上。它永远不会让我惊讶的是,原来的iPhone相机甚至无法拍摄视频 - 在所有 - 和10年内Steven Soderbergh was using iPhones to shoot feature films

由iphone驱动,这个词phonehas simply taken on a new definition — a pocket-sized touchscreen personal computer with wireless networking and one or more cameras. Try convincing a six-year-old that a landline telephone is a “phone” — they won’t believe you.

If you want to know Apple’s top priority with the iPhones 11, just look at the back of the new iPhones. Remember when we thought the iPhone 6 camera bump was prominent? That it was something Applemight be trying to hide在营销照片中?使用iPhone 11,相机系统占用了整个角落。这是如此大的苹果必须将Apple标识移动到背部的中心。我不确定它是否与Apple徽标的较低位置有关,但第一次,iPhone 11不再说“iPhone”。背面唯一的两件事是徽标和大型相机系统。他们不必重命名它“Icamera” - 这些手机尖叫this is a camera只是通过看着他们。如果你坚持判断苹果的焦点 - 没有双关语,我发誓 - 通过他们在上周活动期间谈论的是这些新的iPhone,this 24-second highlight reel says it all

自上周三以来,我一直在使用iPhone 11,iPhone 11 Pro和iPhone 11 Pro Max。我所要说的大多数 - 我认为大多数人需要知道什么来了解它们 - 是关于相机的。我最大的问题是我去年写了这篇评论。我重新阅读my review of last year’s iPhones XS(常规和最大),几乎每个段落都发现自己想今年再次说出完全相同的事情。并不是那些手机与去年的手机相同,但同年同比改进同样令人印象深刻,有时令人兴奋。

Take this bit from last year’s XS review:

我几乎专注于我对我的10个月的iPhone X并排拍照和视频的全面测试。总体而言,我只是被iPhone XS的结果吹走了。有时候差异是微妙的,但明显;有时候差异是不可用且相当不错的。iPhone XS可以捕获iPhone X无法捕获的静止图像和视频。

That’s exactly the case again, this time with the XS in the “last year’s phone” spot and the 11 Pro in the “this year’s phone” spot. It’s an impressive year-over-year camera improvement one year after an impressive year-over-year camera improvement.

I’ll also crib this bit from last year’s XS review1:

值得强调 - 正如我每年都一样 - 那一年后,正常人不会升级他们的手机。Most don’t upgrade after two years. They upgrade when their old phone breaks or gets too slow. Anyone upgrading to the iPhone XS from an iPhone 7 or older is getting a great upgrade in dozens of ways, and the camera system is just one of them. I’ve concentrated on comparing the iPhone XS’s camera to the iPhone X’s for two reasons. First, even though most people don’t buy iPhones annually, Apple releases a new generation of iPhones annually, so that year-over-year comparison feels like the natural way to measure their progress. Second, a fair number of people每年升级,或者至少考虑它(足够的人认为苹果认为值得创造一个年度升级计划),以及拥有iphone x的人areconsidering an upgrade to the XS, to my mind, the camera system is the one and only reason to do it.

Word for word, that holds up again this year, with one notable exception: there is a second reason iPhone XS owners might want to consider upgrading to an iPhone 11 or 11 Pro this year: battery life. It really is better. There’s my review of all three iPhone 11 models in a nut: the camera systems are remarkably improved year-over-year and battery life is noticeably longer.

Understanding the Relationship Between the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro

Just like last year with the XS and XS Max, the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are best thought of as two sizes of the same phone, pretty much like the two sizes of iPad Pro. Same A13 chip, same amount of RAM, exact same cameras. There are some minor software differences — the 11 Pro Max offers the choice between standard and zoomed display modes, whereas the 11 Pro offers only standard; on the Max, apps like Mail and Notes show their source lists of mailboxes/folders in an iPad-like two-column layout when the phone is in landscape orientation — but if you simply think of them as two sizes of the same phone, you won’t be wrong. I prefer the smaller 11 Pro size, and that’s the model I spent the most time with over the last six days. But henceforth in this review, when I write about the iPhone 11 Pro, I mean both the 11 Pro11 pro max。

Second, also just like last year with the XR and XS, the regular iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro arefar比他们不同的更像。普通的iPhone 11非常便宜,似乎有捕获(或多个捕获),但没有抓住。两个主要差异在外面就在外面。在前面,iPhone 11具有LCD“液体视网膜”,具有@ 2X视网膜分辨率;iPhone 11 Pro具有OLED“超级视网膜XDR”,具有@ 3x视网膜分辨率,略小的挡板 - 11 Pro显示器的边缘有点靠近设备边缘。翻转它们,您可以看到其他主要差异:普通的iPhone 11具有双摄像头系统(宽和超镜头),11个Pro型号有三相机系统(宽,超宽和长焦)。

Apple claims the 11 Pro models can get faster LTE performance than the iPhone 11. I didn’t see anything notable running Speedtest here in Philadelphia, but I’m sure there are places where the 11 Pro gets faster LTE. And in my testing, the 11 Pro models scored about 5 percent higher than the regular iPhone 11 in the GeekBench 5 multi-threaded benchmark (single-threaded was equivalent). I ran the benchmarks five times and averaged the results, but that 5 percent difference could be within the margin for error. Bottom line, you can’t go wrong thinking that the only technical differences between the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro are the displays and the Pro’s telephoto camera. The wide angle and ultra-wide angle cameras are exactly the same.

Personally, I like that the bezels around the iPhone 11 Pro display are smaller, but even as a professional nit-picker I can’t say the slightly larger bezels around the iPhone 11 display are a big deal. As for the displays, my eyes simply aren’t good enough to see the difference in typical lighting conditions. Your mileage may vary on that front — my eyes are not great.

Apple必须管理精致的产品营销平衡。在上周的介绍事件和广告中,他们将iPhone 11和iPhone 11 Pro作为两个不同的电话。但抛开材料差异 - 11年代的铝合金与11 Pro的不锈钢;11年代的光泽回来与11 pro的遮罩背面 - 它真的只是归结为显示技术和11 pro的远摄相机。

这是定价矩阵:

64 GB 128 GB 256 GB. 512 GB
iPhone 11 Pro Max $1,100 - 1,250美元 1,450美元
iPhone 11.Pro 1,000 - 1,150 1,350
iPhone 11. 700 750 850. -
δ从64 GB 50美元 150美元 $350

今年的11个专业型号与去年的XS模型相同。然而,普通的iPhone 11比去年的等效XR模型更便宜了50美元。因此,在XR和XS之间,11和11 Pro之间的价格差距比去年的差距高50美元。

去年我叫iphone xr iphone大多数人应该买。它的继任者是iPhone 11,同样的事情是more今年的真实比上次,如果只是因为等同的模型是50美元的便宜。iPhone 11是大多数人最好的手机。再一次,在我的脑海中,整个阵容中的甜蜜点是128 GB iPhone 11 - 以50美元的$ 50,您可以获得双倍的存储基础型号,128 GB对于典型用户而言绰绰有余。

3D Touch Is Gone; Battery Life Is Better

这些似乎像两个不相关的物品,但他们不是。

介绍了3 d触摸iPhone 6 s。每一个new iPhone after the 6S, with the exception of the SE, had 3D Touch — until the iPhone XR last year. Instead of 3D Touch, the XR offered “Haptic Touch”. Haptic Touch is like 3D Touch except it doesn’t really detect the force of your finger press. It seems to me the heuristic is more complicated than just a long press, but it’s more like a long press with a bit of pressure applied.

3D触摸是一个很好的主意,但它从未真正起飞了几个原因。首先,它是未发现的 - iOS界面从未指示可以触摸哪些对象。触觉触摸在这方面并不多得多。其次,似乎一直似乎3D触摸应该是一个长媒体的快捷方式,而且只要长按捷径 - 一种执行长按的方式,无需等待“长”部分。三,用​​iPhone 6,SE和XR,有iPhone甚至没有3D触摸,没有iPad曾经拥有过。因此,Apple和第三方开发人员都不能设计假设3D触摸普遍可用的界面。

想象一下一些iOS设备有触摸屏。如果是这种情况,我们会看到半心半意,对系统和第三方应用程序的MultiTouch支持不一致。这就是3D触摸发生的事情。

So the good news is that switching from 3D Touch to Haptic Touch — along with changes in iOS 13 (and its sibling, iPadOS 13) — makes the whole thing more consistent across all iOS/iPadOS devices. Most iPhone users upgrading from a 3D Touch iPhone to an iPhone 11 or 11 Pro won’t even notice that Haptic Touch and 3D Touch are different.

The bad news is, Haptic Touch is a bit slower. With 3D Touch, when you pressed, the action was instantaneous. With Haptic Touch, because it’s sort of a long press with pressure, there’s a very brief pause before it fires. One shortcut I use all the time, every day, is the camera button on the lock screen. On the iPhone 11 models, it feels just a bit less responsive than on the XS I’m used to. When you upgrade to a new iPhone, even year-over-year, everything usually feels faster or at least the same. Not so with Haptic Touch. It’s just the slightest of delays — a wee bit of latency — but I notice it.

还有一个没有很多人知道的捷径,但是当你向他们展示时,他们的思想被吹来:3D触摸iPhone,你可以触摸和保持任何地方在键盘上(也就是说,将拇指或手指保留在键盘上),键盘转换为虚拟触控板,以便在任何文本编辑字段周围移动插入点,就像移动鼠标指针一样。使用非3D触摸设备(包括iPad),您仍然可以这样做,但是你不能按任何地方on the keyboard to initiate it — you have to press-and-hold on the spacebar. I picked up this shortcut years ago and it long ago became second nature to me. It took me a few days to get used to having to start by pressing on the space bar. It’s a small regression in the user experience.

So why did Apple get rid of 3D Touch? As I wrote above, one reason is to bring a far more consistent experience across all iOS 13 devices. But another reason is that 3D Touch required an entire layer under the display. Removing the 3D Touch sensors freed up space that Apple could use for something else — and it seems as though they’ve put it to use by including bigger, higher capacity batteries. Apple has never advertised the capacity of iPhone batteries, and even off the record, they don’t want to talk about it. We’ll find out when iFixit does their teardowns later this week, but I’ll be very surprised if the iPhone 11 Pro batteries aren’t significantly bigger than their iPhone XS counterparts, and I suspect the biggest reason why is that 3D Touch is gone.

This theory — that removing 3D Touch made room for bigger batteries — fits with Apple’s advertised battery life improvements. The regular iPhone 11 “only” gets 1 additional hour of battery life compared to the iPhone XR. (I put “only” in dick quotes there because the iPhone XR had the longest battery life of any iPhone ever made — a 1-hour improvement over the previous champ is not bad.) But the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max are advertised as getting 4 and 5 more hours of battery life than the XS and XS Max, respectively. With so much of the internals shared between the 11 and 11 Pro models, I just don’t see how only the Pro models could gain so much more battery life unless the batteries are bigger in the iPhones 11 Pro than they were in the iPhones XS.

所以回顾,这是我的理论。去年的iPhone XR没有3D触摸,所以它的电池比它更大,这就是它所做的,这就是为什么它比XS型号明显更好的电池寿命。通过A13芯片和其他组件的各种小效率,普通的iPhone 11获得了一小时的额外电池寿命。iPhone 11 Pro和Pro Max具有比XS对应物更大的电池,使用通过释放3D触摸的空间。它们从同样的小效率中受益,使普通的iPhone 11一张额外的电池寿命一小时,加上距离更大的电池几小时。(新的11个优于XS型号也厚度约为0.4mm,大约10-18克更重。厚度可忽略不计,但它们率约为7-8%。好的机会就是所有电池。)

Again, I miss 3D Touch’s instantaneity, but this is a good trade-off for longer battery life.

我没有使用这些审查单位的任何类型的电池测试,但轶事,我似乎似乎从iPhone XS那里获得更多的电池寿命。(根据设置→电池→电池卫生,我的一岁,使用多用iPhone XS的最大电池容量仍为92%。)

相机性能

I keep mentioning that the iPhone 11 Pro has a three-camera system and the iPhone 11 a dual-camera system. And I’ll mention that again. But what’s essential to understand is that you don’t need to know that the iPhone 11 camera systems consist of two or three discrete cameras. From the user’s perspective, they look and feel like a single camera with multiple zoom levels.

At times the seamlessness of this experience feels like magic.

例如,当拍摄视频时,您可以在拍摄时放大和缩小,并且当您跨过1x和2x缩放阈值时,相机系统将自动切换镜头。到目前为止,所产生的视频中没有任何可辨别的标志。所以使用iPhone 11 Pro,可以使用0.5倍的超宽镜头开始拍摄,然后放大和达到1x时,相机系统将切换到常规宽镜头。继续放大,当您达到2倍时,它将切换到远摄镜头。镜头中没有打嗝,照明或颜色没有差异。这在帧速率下为720p和1080p,最高可达60 fps,24和30 fps为4k。例外是4K 60 FPS - 拍摄4K 60 FPS时,一旦开始录制,您就会陷入困境。

去年谷歌获得了很大的赞美Night Sight modeon its Pixel phones. The iPhones 11 now offer a similar feature Apple is calling Night Mode. Nomenclaturally, this is a bit weird, because on Pixels, Night Sight is a separate mode, and on iPhone 11, Night Mode is not a separate mode — it’s a feature that kicks in automatically in extreme low light conditions — about 10 or fewer lux. (If you don’t want Night Mode, you can turn it off by tapping a button, much like you can manually control the flash.)

When Night Mode is engaged, it simulates a long exposure of 1, 2, or 3 seconds. You hold the phone still and when it’s done, you get an image that effectively makes the camera seem like it can see in the dark. With traditional photography, handheld exposures of more than 1/30th of a second start to get blurry. You just can’t keep your hands still for that long. Two- or three-second exposures handheld just aren’t feasible in traditional photography. Night Mode, on the other hand, doesn’t require anything more than casually steady hands. It’s like being able to hold your hands as steady as a tripod.

Some comparison shots, between an iPhone XS and iPhone 11 Pro with Night Mode. These photos were shot at Hop Sing Laundromat — Philadelphia’s finest North Korean cocktail bar — lit by nothing but candlelight。No editing was performed on any of the files, other than to allow Photos to export HEIC originals as JPEGs.

Portrait mode on the iPhone 11 Pro now has two lens options: 1x and 2x, for the wide and telephoto lenses, respectively. When using Portrait Mode, you must snap to one of these focal lengths — there’s no way to pinch-to-zoom to something in between like 1.5x. The iPhone 11 Pro’s telephoto lens has an aperture of f/2.0; the telephoto lens on the XS (and X before it) was f/2.4. A lower number for the f-stop means a wider aperture, which means more light reaches the sensor, which means it works better in low light conditions. If you ever tried using Portrait Mode in dim lighting with an iPhone X or XS, you were probably disappointed. You can’t use Night Mode while in Portrait Mode, but the iPhone 11 Pro’s faster 2x lens allows you to take Portrait Mode shots that the iPhone XS can’t. Example:

The iPhone 11 Pro’s Portrait Mode in low light is far from perfect — if you look closely, it loses the back of the rim of the cocktail glass. But the iPhone XS portrait shot of the same scene is unusable.

另一点魔法。设置→相机中有两个新选项:“框架之外的照片捕获”(默认情况下)和“帧外的视频捕获”(默认情况下)。当这些选项打开时,使用1x或2x镜头(宽或长距离)拍摄时,相机应用将使用下一个最宽的镜头来捕获镜头框架外的额外镜头。在帖子中,这允许您旋转照片或视频 - 通常,修复弯曲的地平线 - 没有裁剪。这似乎是,不幸的是,IOS 13.0中有点越野车,但是当它有效时,它是惊人的。在某些时候,Apple对此功能有更多信心时,我希望它默认为视频和照片默认。

Last examples — both taken with the iPhone 11 Pro in Portrait Mode. I’m finding Portrait Mode with the 1x focal length to be a lot of fun. The 2x lens is better for capturing a flattering photo of a person willing to pose for you, but the 1x lens is better for small objects and pets. This is Mochi. Mochi looks good in both of these shots, but I think the 1x shot works better. It’s more fun to get closer.

A few other observations about the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro camera systems:

  • 夜间模式不适用于超宽11 Pro镜头 - 它做esn’t have focus pixelslike the other two lenses do. Only the wide angle lens has 100 percent focus pixels, but the wide angle lens covers the entire area of the telephoto lens.

  • 不过,超宽镜头非常棒,适用于动作视频。

  • The ultra-wide lens is so insanely wide that I need to learn a new phone grip while shooting photos. I caught my finger in the frame several times while shooting ultra-wide photos.这是我的照片,以一种非常自然的方式举行手机,但它在超宽镜头视野的左下方放置了中指的中间节点。

  • 整个相机应用UI已用于iPhone 11和11 Pro。在一系列变化中,方形摄影不再是一个单独的模式,这永远不会真正有意义。而是有一行的控件从快门按钮区域滑出,其中一个控件为您提供了三个静止照片的宽高比选项:1:1(正方形),4:3和16:9。选择1:1或16:9时,您可以在编辑中重新裁剪照片以获得完整的4:3帧。这些纵向比是非破坏性的,因为缺乏更好的单词。

    The iPhone 11 Camera app is very different, but I took to it right away. It feels less like an app and more like a camera. It’s just great software.

  • 有两种方法可以访问此新行选项(包括Flash,Timer和Live Filters)。iPhone显示屏顶部有一个脚轮按钮;点击它以隐藏/显示选项按钮。但是,我发现自己正在做的事情只是从快门区域滑出的,就像从显示屏顶部下拉下拉控制中心一样。

  • 照片应用程序现在让您在大多数情况下编辑视频,如果不是全部,则可以编辑照片的方式。裁剪,应用过滤器,调整亮度和对比等。很多这些功能都是计算令人印象深刻的。将过滤器应用于4K视频,没有渲染时间?在手机上?但是我最喜欢的新功能是如此简单:您可以在不将修剪版本作为新视频的情况下修剪视频。因此,如果您只想从剪辑的末尾修剪几秒钟,您就不会在图书馆中使用两个视频。

  • 新的SF相机字体令人愉快。从字面上没有人会买一个iPhone 11,只是为了获得相机应用程序稍微更有工业的字体,但这是一个很好的奖金。Update:好的,好的,我们都知道至少有一个可能购买iPhone 11的人只是为了获得新的SF相机字体。

  • QuickTake似乎最接近营销刺激,我的意思是我真的认为它应该成为所有运行iOS 13的IOS 13的相机应用程序的一部分。这是你可以点击的功能 -在照片模式下按住快门按钮以拍摄视频。以前,按住快门按钮拍摄静止的爆发。我想比我想拍摄剧烈的爆发更频繁地拍摄视频方式。如果您确实想要拍摄静止的爆发,请将快门按钮滑到左侧。将快门滑动到右侧将其锁定到视频录制中,因此您不必将拇指放在快门按钮上。(也:nice name。)

Colors and Textures

苹果借给我的审查单位都是绿色:绿色iPhone 11,“午夜绿色”iPhone 11 Pro和Pro Max。

iPhone 11的柔和绿色不是我的风格,但它是一种有趣的颜色。取决于照明,有时看起来几乎像蒂芙尼蓝色。我觉得苹果真的试图让这个明确的情况发生,因为他们继续放一个lotof work into the new colors for iPhones.

上周我将11 pro的午夜绿色描述为“有点鲍巴·费茨对此感觉”. I stand by that. It’s a very cool-looking green. It looks quite different depending on the lighting conditions, though. In sunlight, it clearly looks green. Indoors, however, it looks more neutral, and sometimes even look like dark gray. I pre-ordered a space gray iPhone 11 Pro for my personal use, not so much because I dislike the midnight green as that I’m boring that way. If Apple had replaced space gray with midnight green, I’d have ordered midnight green and wouldn’t have complained. It really is a neat look, different from any phone finish I’ve seen before. It’s no surprise that Apple’s first two iPhone 11 Pro TV commercialsexclusivelyfeature午夜绿色饰面。(这两个斑点也看起来像是在宇宙飞船走廊里举行,其中Boba Fett会在家里感觉到。)

iPhone 8,X,XS和XR的玻璃背部都有光泽。这是iPhone 11的背面。然而,11个回来的背面有哑光。我喜欢。我不会说它增加了很多贪婪,但它增加了一些,它绝对可以告诉电话的哪一面是这种感觉。纹理感觉非常相似 - 如果与最近的MacBook上的哑光玻璃轨迹板没有相同。

iOS 13.0

我遇到了一些bug过去一周。One time Messages completely froze, and the phone started getting very warm. Force quitting Messages didn’t help — I had to power-cycle the phone to get Messages working again. Several times the keyboard in Messages went entirely white. I could actually still type, but I couldn’t see the keys I was pressing. With iOS 13.1 coming just 10 days after iPhone 11 units get into customer hands, I don’t see the point in belaboring this, but 13.1 needs to be a lot more stable than 13.0. 13.0 feels like a late stage beta.

结论

Here I am, 5,000+ words into this review of these three phones, and my gut feeling is that the best way to review them is simply to show dozens of photos and videos shot with them, compared to the same photos and videos shot with older iPhones and competing Android phones. “Show, don’t tell”, is probably the best way to tell the story of the iPhones 11.

The battery life gains should be of interest to everyone, even those who don’t care about the camera, but if you’re not interested in the camera systems, I don’t see how there’s any way to get you excited about the iPhones 11.

几次过去几年,我沿着谈话,“I know they’re never going to do this, but wouldn’t it be cool if Apple made a real camera?” As the iPhone camera system evolves, I’m starting to think Appleismaking a real camera, right under our noses — or perhaps better said, right in our pockets.


  1. And let me just add this for those who insist that it’s some sort of problem that the iPhones 11 — no matter how improved their cameras are, no matter their longer battery life, no matter their faster yet-at-the-same-time more power-efficient A13 chips — seem like mere incremental upgrades over last year’s iPhone XS and XR models.什么时候有所不同?当iPhone 3G增加3G网络和GPS时,你被吹走了吗?replaced the original iPhone’s wonderful aluminum case with cheap-feeling plastic? Did the differences between the iPhone 4 and 4S knock you off your feet? Do you honestly remember the differences between the 4 and 4S? Incremental year-over-year improvements arehow Apple rolls。对于700美元的费用来购买基础模型iPhone 11 - 更不用说1,450美元的价格为512 GB iPhone 11 Pro Max的费用 - 您应该预期它持续三年或更长时间。需要for a new iPhone.

    I’m sure this footnote will put an end to this argument.↩︎
