That ’s what I kept thinking during Apple ’ s big event, and afterward, when I had the opportunity to try the new device and its big Pro siblings. While the Pro models offer some impressive tech for people hoping for the very most from their photos, for most people, the $ 700 iPhone 11 offers a whole lot of

The iPhone 11 is not quite as cheap as Apple wants you to think it is.

On Tuesday, the technology giant announced its latest smartphone, the iPhone 11, had a starting price of £729 – a major drop from the £1,000 price for the iPhone X and XS.

However, before you get too excited about saving £300, there's a catch.

Like most new iPhone models, the 11 comes with improved graphics performance, faster processing and a better camera than its previous model.

But here's the problem...

Although the iPhone 11 might sound like the XS’s replacement, it isn’t correct to equate the two products.

When will Apple announce the iPhone 11 in 2019?

When will Apple announce the iPhone 11 in 2019? We predict the exact date when Apple will unveil the iPhone 11, 11R and 11 Max.

That means Apple ’ s “ cheap ” new iPhone is still more expensive than the most popular Android flagship. Still, when compared directly against the iPhone 8 Plus, the XR looks like a surprisingly affordable alternative. And with Apple going full Face ID with all three of its new iPhones , it ’s nice to

Fresh look , new colors. From the front, the iPhone 11 looks pretty much identical to the iPhone XR. It has an aluminum frame and 6.1-inch LCD Liquid Retina Display, just like its predecessor. The iPhone 11 in green, even though it looks more blue here. Image: karissa bell / mashable.

The 11 is actually the replacement for last year’s XR, a “budget” iPhone which used to cost £749 in the UK.

The new flagship phone is the iPhone 11 Pro, which comes with the much-discussed triple camera and £1,049 price tag.

So you are getting a price cut with the new iPhone 11 - it's just that the cut is closer to £20 rather than £300.

The specifications for the XR and 11 show why it is better to compare those two products than the XS.

For example:

  • Both the 11 and XR have the same type of screen (a Liquid Retina HD) and are the same size (6.1 inches).
  • The 11 is made from glass and aluminium (just like the XR was), while the 11 Pro is made from stainless steel (just like the XS).
  • The iPhone 11 camera has two sensors, compared to the 11 Pro’s three - while the XR had a single camera sensor, compared to the XS’ dual sensor.

Most tellingly, the iPhone XR does not have an explicit budget replacement.

YOUR iPhone could lose up nearly £ 220 in trade-in value once Apple announces its next top model. We're expecting a new iPhone in mid-September "The reason for this is mainly a lack of innovation and consumers can't distinguish between the upgraded features, which leads to them choosing an

So, why does Apple need a cheaper Face ID iPhone ? The situation could be ready to repeat for the new " cheaper iPhone ." If this is a successor to the iPhone 8, though, there' s really no reason why Apple would have to dip below that phone' s $ 700 price tag.

That’s because the 11 is actually the new cheaper iPhone - albeit with a name that implies it’s the flagship product.

If nothing else, that should be a consolation to anyone who feels ripped off by paying £1,000 for the iPhone X last year.
