The iPhone Pro and Pro Max are the first iPhone's powerful enough to be called “Pro” by Apple, lending a lot of weight to such a tiny abbreviation and aligning the phones with the sophisticated iPad Pro, their most premium tablet.

It all centres on that iconic three-eyed camera. The 12-megapixel wide and ultra-wide lenses are exactly the same across all models, but with the Pro series you also get a jaw-dropping telephoto lens (also 12-megapixel). This, in real world terms, gives you double the amount of zoom with your Pro Vs regular iPhone 11. 

For taking videos, you can zoom in up to x6 with Pro, Vs just x3 with the basic 11.

For photos, you can zoom to a staggering x10 with Pro, Vs just x5 with the basic 11 – and still produces fantastic shots.

The quality of images you can capture with the Pro and Pro Max’s telephoto lens is truly awesome. Simply put, it gives you more options than ever before, letting you create photo compositions that make jaws drop and eyes pop. So if you love taking photos that stand out from the pack on Instagram and other social media sites, going Pro could give you the edge – and the extra followers.

Spot the difference

Firstly, the display. Whether you choose the 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro or 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max, you’re getting a Super Retina XDR display. These support HDR (high dynamic range), which gives a key edge when considering image quality, with more visible contrast between bright and dark areas of an image. In everyday terms, your photos and videos are likely to look a notch or two better than the 11’s Liquid Retina HD display. The smoking gun is in the detailed specs: the Pro’s feature a contrast ratio of 2,000,000: 1 versus just 1,400: 1 on the 11. That’s epic.

Second, the battery. In this department, there’s no doubt that the Pro series are heavyweight champions. iPhone 11 gives you 1 hour longer on a full charge compared to the previous iPhone XR. Hold that against the raw stamina of 4 hours longer versus iPhone XS for the iPhone 11 Pro and 5 hours for the Pro Max.

In a nutshell it’s time to go Pro, because why would you settle for less!!
