Yesterday was a big day (No, not my birthday). Apple refreshed its line of iPhones announcing the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
My first impression – that’s a No from me, but I still asked my boyfriend if I can get one, a No from him as well.
In the past few years, there is a tendency when it’s not really important how the iPhone has changed since last year because they are not, but still, you have to throw your old iPhone in the trash every September… This year It’s the first ‘pro’ iPhone, but does it earn the upgrade?

A battery can live longer, sorry, but I’ll be impressed only after iPhone can survive longer than Nokia 3310. What else, you can now finally take your phone into 4m deep water and live there up to 30min, very important, but I can hold my breath underwater only for 30seconds. Who goes diving with the iPhone?
But the best thing, and the reason why we need an iPhone! Yes!!! You are correct – more colors!
Triple camera, I want to see it and try in real life. That’s surely is the biggest upgrade of this phone.
What’s missing? No one is talking about it BUT there is No 5G support! Soon 5G will be a must, so it means that you will need to change iPhone again shortly.

Faster face ID? Good, I was just wondering when will become the day when face ID works with sunglasses or without my make-up on…
Fast Charger? This definitely is a big deal. The new charger can charge 48% in half an hour compared to 17% before.
Design? I didn’t like what I saw at first. The tree cameras at back look funny and that’s why there are so many memes already, BUT eventually, it comes down to your ego. Mr. Boyfriend, for example, joined the waiting list only because of its design. You know, everyone will see that your iPhone has three cameras and you will automatically become a cool guy that has only latest and greatest.
With my iPhone XS, I felt like a “cool guy” all this year. But not anymore. After all, it has only 2 cameras, which is for one less than iPhone 11 Pro. I don’t want to admit it but deep inside I want that feeling again. This is what Apple does with us. A great marketing trick.
At the end of the day, the iPhone is the best phone out there, surely, that’s just my opinion. It’s very intuitive, and I feel that it does what I want, I don’t have to work for it.
once you go iPhone, you never come back.
iPhone is and will be a top product, but, unfortunately, the difference is not that big, so I’m staying with my iPhone XS.
So, is the iPhone 11 Pro hot or not? iPhone, whatever the features are, is and will be Hot! There is no other phone that is more popular. Every September whole world is talking about it, good job Apple, good job!
