It was time to finally upgrade the old iPhone to the latest models on the market today. iPhone 11 and 11 Pro Max. Let’s take a look!
In the Box
iPhone, power cord. USB-C charging cable. Lightning ear buds. Some stickers, etc.
As with all Apple products, the construction seems solid as the design and form factor are beautiful. The initial set up took longer because the old school method of backing up from iTunes did not go to well. After an hour of trying, I had to finally setting up the phone as “new.” This allowed us to do a software update on the phone. After that, the iTunes restore finally worked. You’ll need your Apple id or create one and password. The new feature of face recognition was interesting to set up. You can still use the pass code, so don’t worry about losing that. Since there is no home button any more, swipe up will be your new favorite gesture but takes some getting used to.
After 3 week of use
The swipe up quickly became super easy to use and you quickly forget that you ever had a home button to mess with. The 3 camera set up on the pro max is taking wonderful pictures. It takes some tinkering with, but after a while, you will get the hang of it.
Price, price and price. Phones these days are so expensive. A little disappointment is that the 11’s camera only has .5 and 1x mode with a digital zoom of only 5 x. That’s disappointing since our older model iphones had digital zoom up to 10x.
The reason I switched from Android to Apple years ago is because their phones just work. Period. Everything else is gravy, but everything else is top notch and if you are in the Apple eco-system and need a phone upgrade, you can’t go wrong with these.
4.5 out of 5 stars
