Compare the iPhone 11 Pro to the iPhone Xs

The Apple iPhone 11 Pro is the successor to the iPhone Xs. In addition to the new green color with matte finish, this model looks like its predecessor. Still, there are some noticeable differences. The triple camera, a new processor, longer battery life, and a new Super Retina XDR display, for example. We'll tell you more about all the differences.

Night mode iPhone 11 Pro

iPhone 11 Pro: triple camera

The triple camera is especially striking. The 11 Pro has a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera, telephoto lens, and ultra wide-angle camera. In addition to zooming in, you can also zoom out without compromising quality. On top of that, you can take the most beautiful photos in the dark with the night mode. Your selfies will also be sharper than ever thanks to the 12-megapixel TrueDepth camera. Enjoy recording videos of yourself? Apple has introduced what they call 'slofies'. You guessed it; they're selfies in slow motion.

Night mode iPhone Xs

iPhone Xs: dual camera with improved portrait mode

The Apple iPhone Xs has a dual camera system consisting of a 12-megapixel wide-angle and telephoto lens. You can also take selfies with the 7-megapixel TrueDepth camera. Already a fan of the portrait mode that creates a subtle blurry background? Photos will look even more professional now that you can adjust the depth of field yourself. In addition, the iPhone Xs has a renewed sensor which makes photos look more vivid thanks to the larger and deeper pixels. This sensor also creates less image noise in low light.


Screen iPhone 11 Pro

iPhone 11 Pro: more brightness and deeper blacks

The Apple iPhone 11 Pro comes in the same sizes as the iPhone Xs, but the screen is different. Take the newest Super Retina XDR screen, for example. The brightness of the screen is 800 nits. Despite the brightness being higher, the black levels are richer than before. That's because the contrast is higher. The iPhone 11 Pro no longer has the 3D Touch technology. Apple replaced this function with Haptic Touch. Instead of pushing firmly, you now have to press the screen for longer to activate certain functions.

Screen iPhone Xs

iPhone Xs: the first 6.5-inch screen

The Apple iPhone Xs comes in two sizes: 5.8 and 6.5 inches. The screen takes up the entire front of your phone. The 6.5-inch Max version has the largest iPhone screen to date. The Super Retina HD display has a brightness of 625 nits. Thanks to HDR, content on the screen really comes to life. In addition, the screen provides a natural color representation and deep black levels. Unlike the iPhone 11 Pro, the iPhone Xs has 3D Touch. This means the screen is pressure-sensitive, so you can activate certain functions by pushing on the screen.


Processor iPhone 11 Pro

iPhone 11 Pro: AirDrop by pointing your iPhone at the recipient

The iPhone 11 Pro has an A13 Bionic Chip with a 3rd generation Neural Engine, which is the successor to the A12 chip. Thought the A12 chip was fast? The A13 is even faster and ensures everything runs more smoothly. In addition to the A13 chip, the iPhone 11 Pro also has a new U1 chip. This is a special version that determines your position relative to other (wireless) devices. Want to AirDrop a file to your friend? All you have to do is point at your friend's device. They'll appear at the top automatically.

Processor iPhone Xs

iPhone Xs: fast performance with every task

The powerful chip in the iPhone Xs is the A12 Bionic Chip with a 2nd generation Neural Engine. Thanks to this chip, I'm not experiencing any delay when swiping between apps and playing a game. The A12 chip is 40% faster than its predecessor and uses 50% less energy. This chip provides beautiful portraits with depth control and speed during every task. It actually provides more power than you need for your daily tasks. In a few years, this will only be an advantage. Your phone will still be up to speed by that time.

iPhone 11 Pro: the longest battery life of any iPhone

Think the iPhone Xs has a long battery life? The iPhone 11 Pro lasts 4 hours longer than the iPhone Xs and up to 5 hours longer than the Xs Max. The 11 Pro has the longest battery life of any iPhone. The iPhone 11 Pro also supports fast charging, but you no longer have to buy this charger separately. It's included by default. Are you over Silver, Space Gray, and Gold by now? The Apple iPhone 11 Pro comes in a new color: Midnight Green. Despite the glass on the back, all phones have a matte finish.

Collection iPhone Xs

iPhone Xs: talk time up to 25 hours

The battery of the iPhone Xs doesn't drain quickly. You have up to 20 hours of talk time and 25 hours on the Max. You can browse the internet non-stop for up to 12 hours on the iPhone Xs and up to 13 hours on the Xs Max. Is the battery empty? Thanks to fast charging, you can charge the battery up to 50% in 30 minutes. You do have to buy a fast charger separately, since it isn't included by default. The Apple iPhone Xs comes in 3 colors: Space Gray, Silver, and Gold. They all have a glossy finish.


Whether you choose the iPhone 11 Pro or the iPhone Xs, neither will disappoint you. But the iPhone Pro wouldn't be 'Pro' if it wasn't slightly better at everything. The iPhone 11 Pro doesn't have a dual, but a triple camera for example. The battery also lasts 4 to 5 hours longer than that of its predecessor, the iPhone Xs. The iPhone Xs has a very good screen, but the screen of the 11 Pro has an even higher brightness and deeper black levels. It's also a bit faster and runs more smoothly than its predecessor. You do have to use the iPhone a lot to even notice this difference.
