Apple unveil new iPhone 11 Pro with three rear-facing cameras

Apple has launched three brand new iPhones, while simultaneously slashing the price of existing models.

Between the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, Apple is hoping to meet the needs of everyone – or at least everyone with at least $700 to spend on a new phone.

Their arrival means it has never been more confusing to choose which iPhone to buy, coming as they do just one year after Apple introduced three phones in its iPhone X range, and two years after the launch of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

All of them vary vastly in size, specs and price, with a new iPhone 8 coming in at less than half the price of the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

So which one is right for you? We’ve put together a quiz to help you find your ideal iPhone.

The biggest upgrade on the iPhone 11 range is undoubtedly the camera, with the two ‘Pro’ models featuring an additional lens.

This may not be the best phone for anyone who suffers from Trypophobia – a fear of irregular patterns of small holes – but the trio of lenses combine to deliver the best camera Apple has ever made.

Alongside the standard camera and zoom lens that have featured on recent incarnations of new iPhones, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max come with an ultra-wide lens that can fit in twice as much into a single image.

The latest r​ange of iPhones also come in new colours and support Apple's new iOS 13 mobile operating system, which will arrive on 19 September for older phones.

All of the new iPhones are available for pre-order and will begin shipping on 20 September.
