In the last two years I graduated from college, launched my career, and began a new life completely on my own. I think any budding adult can relate to the fact that moving out and severing ties with your parents bills can be a huge feat. Last weekend, I finally made the switch to my own phone plan, which means I am now totally self-sufficient.
Months after its release, I finally upgraded to the iPhone 11 Pro. I am generally not one to freak out over the new iPhone or wait hours in line for a product that I can get a few weeks after release. The same applies to the iPhone 11 Pro. Previously, I had an iPhone X which I upgraded to in early 2018. My phone still worked properly and I did not have any other issues; however, the new phone plan meant a new phone.
I made the switch from Galaxy to iPhone over 6 years ago now simply because it was more universal and my family used a lot of Apple products at the time. My first introduction to iPhone was with the iPhone 6 and I have stuck with iPhone ever since. From the iPhone 6 I transitioned to the iPhone X which was a HUGE difference; most notable difference being the lack of a home button. Nevertheless, I had to make many adjustments when I switched from the iPhone 6 to the iPhone X.
Changing from the iPhone X to the iPhone 11 Pro provided a much different experience. Gone are the days where your service provider would hook up your old and new phones to a machine and transfer all your data. With Apple’s iCloud, all of your contacts, settings, and apps are backed up meaning you simply have to log in to the new device and transfer data through the cloud. In my previous experiences with new iPhones, I always had to re-download apps and sign back in to everything, but this time my user interface looked exactly the same as my iPhone X.
The biggest difference between the iPhone X and the iPhone 11 Pro is the camera. Apple focused heavily on the enhanced camera features in all of the advertisements. The iPhone 11 Pro features a triple-lens camera setup which offers a better zoom, ultra-wide angles, and increased quality. I have taken a few pictures so far with the new camera and I am excited to try out all of the new features.
Aside from the enhanced camera features, I do not notice many differences from the iPhone X. It appears that innovation between the iPhone models has begun to slow. I think Apple made the huge adjustments in previous models and now we will start to see incremental changes between each iteration rather than rapid change. The iPhone 11 Pro definitely does not disappoint, but do not expect any major differences from the iPhone X when you go to upgrade.
