You can now preorder iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro

You can now preorder iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro
Quick question: what would you wake up at 5:00AM for? To have an energizing morning jog while the city is still asleep? To be the first to pick up fresh, warm croissants at the bakery? Or to place an iPhone 11 preorder, perhaps?

If you fall into the latter category, then this Friday the 13th is your lucky day, apparently. Apple just opened the iPhone 11 preorder floodgates, meaning that anyone eager to be among the first owners of an iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or an iPhone 11 Pro Max can now reserve one.

The iPhone 11 preorders are now live


The Apple Store might load more slowly than usual because of the overwhelming amount of iPhone preorders all going through at the same time, but there are alternatives. If you're having troubles with the Apple Store, you may try placing an order through the official Apple Store app for iOS. Or try checking out the web store of your carrier of choice. Best Buy is also about to start accepting preorders for all new iPhone 11 models.

UPDATE: AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Best Buy are all now accepting iPhone 11 preorders. 

Keep in mind that iPhone inventory tends to run out quickly, so if you want an iPhone 11 as soon as possible, it is a good idea to preorder one as soon as possible. In previous years, the base, least expensive models were the ones to sell out first, and we doubt that this year things will be any different. Even if stock is low, you'll still be able to preorder any iPhone 11 variant, but it might be weeks after the iPhone 11 release date before you get yours.

iPhone 11 price and release date


Speaking of which, the iPhone 11 release date for 2019 is September 20 for over 30 countries, the US included. Prices start at $699 for the iPhone 11, $999 for the iPhone 11 Pro, and $1099 for the iPhone 11 Pro Max. Buyers get a year of Apple TV+ for free with their purchase. 


For those who've missed the Apple Event on Tuesday, the iPhone 11 series brings significant upgrades in the camera department. The iPhone 11 succeeds the iPhone XR from last year and adds a super wide-angle camera in addition to an upgraded main one. Both shoot 12MP photos and capture 4K video at 60fps. As for the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, they both come with triple cameras: super wide, 2x zoom telephoto, and a regular 12MP cam for every-day use. Improvements in battery life were also pointed out during the announcement event.

Ordering any of these iPhone 11, is really settling for less. Yet your paying too much. Ever other flagship OEM is putting out 128 GB of storage as minimum, and Apple's minimum is only 64 GB.

True, Samsung base is 128gb and features innovation and yet it doesn’t sell well. What do you think is the problem?

What Innovation? I have not seen anything in this regard from Samsung. Note 10 does not even offer 90Hz screen. That also applies to Apple but Apple seem to at least innovate in the camera department.

here you are still trying to attack Samsung? Samsung did even better with the cameras. Not only is it an improved version of the camera from the S10+, they added 2 more sensors to improve photo quality. I don't know if you're just blind, or you just can't get Samsung off your mine. Apple certainly made some improvements to the camera, the same improvements everyone else already did for 3 years. This is the Note 10+ Camera MAIN CAMERA Quad 12 MP, f/1.5-2.4, 27mm (wide), 1/2.55", 1.4µm, Dual Pixel PDAF, OIS 12 MP, f/2.1, 52mm (telephoto), 1/3.6", 1.0µm, PDAF, OIS, 2x optical zoom 16 MP, f/2.2, 12mm (ultrawide), 1.0µm, Super Steady video TOF 3D VGA camera Features LED flash, auto-HDR, panorama Video 2160p@30/60fps, 1080p@30/60/240fps, 720p@960fps, HDR10+, dual-video rec., stereo sound rec., gyro-EIS & OIS Show me where Apple's camera even matches that dude? Apple innovated with the camera? Really? How? because they added a new lens and added a new UI feature so you can advance the lens slowly? That's innovative? I can't wait to see side by side camera tests. I agree they are greatly improved and considering how they've been behind Samsung in the camera department since the S4, it's about time they did something worth talkign about. God knows they have the frikkin money.

Funny that you have completely missed this The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ is totally destroyed by the competition inourblindcameracomparisonhttps://www.phonearena.com/news/Samsung-Galaxy-Note-10-plus-loses-blind-camera-comparison-Pixel-3-iPhone-XS-Max-and-OnePlus-7-Pro-apple-google_id118606 Why the results are this poor from such a great camera according to you? ”I can't wait to see side by side camera tests. I agree they are greatly improved and considering how they've been behind Samsung in the camera department since the S4” iPhones are ahead of Samsung every year in camera department and i don’t think this year going to be any different. Big feeling that Dxomark will say Pro has best camera in the market. Then after it might change and be Mate 30 pro or Pixel 4, Samsung have to wait until S11. Just like every year.

You have got to be kidding Samsung has a bunch of different smartphones (43 models), and at all different price levels. Apples price levels are high and higher, and with a tiny choice to choose from. It's not just 64 GB of storage, it's a bunch of things that add up to make these new iPhones not only overpriced, but not worth the upgrade. If Apple released an iPhone SE 2, then that would be Apples top seller, and not the iPhone 11. Why do think Samsung sells around 300 million smartphones every year. Apple has never come close to selling that number of iPhones in one year. Apple isn't going to come close to that number this year. Analyst said Apple is hoping to sell 180 million iPhones this year.

There's way more to an iPhone, than the storage. That said, I do agree with you. 2020 will be a much better device.

It's good that i wanted 64GB model because more bigger memory models are already showing 2-3 weeks shipping. For 64GB deliver date is still launch day.

It looks like they have lot more Pro Max units available because availability for Max is still very good, but not for regular Pro.

I just ordered the 11 pro 512 GB and it’s still showing delivery on 20. My XS is 256GB with only 38GB free so had to go for 512GB to accommodate for the data.

Because if you want IOS, you have zero choice but to buy what Apple offers. That's the greatest thing about Android and Windows. if one OEM doesn't have what you want, you can choose another and all your stuff will still worth. Apple fans call this loyalty. It's not loyal when you have zero choice. Someone posted Apple has the most loyal fans. No, they have he most locked in fans. Even though Apple's music and video files will lay on Android devices (many don't even know this), you can't move the apps. So unless the apps you are using are available on Android, you are stuck on IOS for the exclusive apps. That's not loyalty. You are simply locked in and to get out dpedning on how long you've been in is basiclaly at this point, almost impossible. I will always keep an iOS device, at least while Apple supports the one i have with updates. I love my original iPad Pro 10.5, but I am not every buyign another one. Because we don't need any new apps and as long as devs have an app that works on whatever version of iOS we have, we will use it until its no longer supported. I think this is what lots of Apple users are doing.

”Someone posted Apple has the most loyal fans. No, they have he most locked in fans.” No Apple have loyal fans because we are very satisfied what we have, iPhone customer satisfaction is 99% now. We aren’t locked, if i would want to switch and see something wrong with current experience i would switch, but Apple have made it really easy to stay in iOS ecosystem. But the thing is, as long as users are happy with what they have they won’t even thinking to switching. Right away when you aren’t happy with the experience you get you are starting to search alternatives. This Applies to everything. When you have bad experience you switch brand, as long as you have good experience you are very happy with what you have and keep buying same brand. Just like i now owned my very expensive Samsung TV for over a year and it’s been perfect and Samsung broke feature from this TV 2-3 months ago with update and it took them 2-3 months to fix it and it was problem affecting lot of people. Favorites channel list lost everytime when you open TV again. It was really frustrating and there wasn’t any workaround fix and i was right away thinking different options, but there’s no anything competitive in these huge TV’s but it’s now fixed and i’m very happy again. This is just an example, all of my tv’s been Samsung because the experience been very good and if there won’t be anymore problems i propably upgrade this to 82” soon.

Unless you have a iphone 6 or maybe a 6s I just don't see that it is worth ordering these. I guess for people that use the camera a ton but honestly nothing here to really get excited about. Sure they will still sell like crazy and Apple knows that so they can afford to hold back innovation because people will still buy these.

If i wouldn’t be interested about photography i wouldn’t see any reason to upgrade my X. I think the new camera system going to be big sales driver, it’s not just a small camera update like every year camera is getting little bit better, it’s the whole new camera system upgrade which gives you option to take different kind of photos than before. So it’s lot easier to sell to people because everyone can see the difference what you can do with this camera system compared to earlier models.

Best to wait for reviews before diving in, i cant see their being a big improvement over last years models still only 4gb ram on all models.

19. midan

Posts: 2873; Member since: Oct 09, 2017

I’m not expect anything else than great reviews for these. Also i’m sure 4GB is more than enough. With my X and iPad Pro i’ve never had situation where more RAM needed, so i wouldn’t be worried about that.

I was watching the Keynote and the camera is nicer for sure especially the night mode. That being said if I had a IphoneX I wouldn't see $1k worth of value out of the new camera to upgrade. I don't know how often people will use that wider telephoto lens. If I was going to buy I think I would just get the 11 and not the pro because that extra sensor isn't worth $300 to me... The LCD screen is kind of a bummer but I'm not sure even the oled screen is worth the extra money. The camera's on the 11 still do 4k hdr at 60fps and night mode. I'm useually excited about the new iphones but this year just seems like they left a lot out because people will still buy it anyway. I bet if they have slow sales this year next years phone will be a big jump.

”Space Gray, Silver, and Gold iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max models are also selling out quickly with many colors and capacities across several carriers now unavailable for launch day delivery. Gold devices are still in stock along with a few Silver and Space Gray, but it looks like all available supply will soon be exhausted. ”

I ordered the Pro Max 256. To me worth it. If I can’t sell my 256GB XS for 650 in the next week I’ll just trade it in for the 500

The pricing of iPhones are very different depending on the market. In Sweden the "simpler" iPhone 11 with 64GB start with: 8 919 SEK (much more expensive if you want more than 64GB) Sony Xperia 5 with 128GB and micro sd card expansion that coming out in a similar timeframe: 7 990 SEK And if you pre-order Xperia 5 they will bundle some Sony earphones 1000XM3 a value of: 2590 SEK It much I like about the new iPhone 11. But outside US its still a very expensive brand.
