Founded in a garage in 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne, Apple began as a personal computer pioneer that today makes everything from laptops to portable media players. Headquartered in Cupertino, California, the consumer electronics giant entered the smartphone market with the iPhone in 2007, and the tablet market with the iPad in 2010, and the smartwatch market with the Apple Watch in 2014. Apple’s latest mobile launch is the iPhone SE (2020). The smartphone was launched in 15th April 2020. The phone comes with a 4.70-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 750 pixels by 1334 pixels at a PPI of 326 pixels per inch.
The phone packs 64GB of internal storage cannot be expanded. As far as the cameras are concerned, the iPhone SE (2020) packs a 12-megapixel (f/1.8) primary camera on the rear and a 7-megapixel front shooter for selfies.
The iPhone SE (2020) runs iOS 13. It measures 138.40 x 67.30 x 7.30 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 148.00 grams.

1. iPhone SE (2020)
The iPhone SE (2020) is an unusual device, combining a throwback style with some modern internal components. It’s virtually identical to the iPhone 8 from the outside, and there aren’t many phones these days that are as slim and light.
That also means the screen is small, at 4.7 inches, and battery life isn’t great. You get the modern A13 Bionic processor which is extremely powerful, but only a single rear camera.
The main attraction for many people will be iOS, which is smooth and slick, with multiple years of updates guaranteed. Apple also targets this phone at those who want to upgrade from an older model to continue using iCloud services.
While you can get good performance from the iPhone SE (2020), its utility is limited by the small screen. The rear camera takes great stills and video in the daytime, but low-light performance is disappointing. Noteworthy features include wireless charging and an IP67 water resistance rating.
2. iPhone 11 Pro
iPhone 11 Pro smartphone was launched on 10th September 2019. The phone comes with a 5.80-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1125×2436 pixels at a pixel density of 458 pixels per inch (ppi).
iPhone 11 Pro is powered by a hexa-core Apple A13 Bionic processor. It comes with 4GB of RAM. The iPhone 11 Pro runs iOS 13 and is powered by a 3046mAh non-removable battery. The iPhone 11 Pro supports wireless charging, as well as proprietary fast charging.
As far as the cameras are concerned, the iPhone 11 Pro on the rear packs a 12-megapixel primary camera with an f/1.8 aperture; a second 12-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 aperture and a third 12-megapixel camera with an f/2.0 aperture. The rear camera setup has autofocus. It sports a 12-megapixel camera on the front for selfies, with an f/2.2 aperture.
iPhone 11 Pro based on iOS 13 and packs 64GB of inbuilt storage. The iPhone 11 Pro is a dual-SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and eSIM cards. The iPhone 11 Pro measures 144.00 x 71.40 x 8.10mm (height x width x thickness) and weighs 188.00 grams. It was launched in Gold, Midnight Green, Silver, and Space Grey colours. It features an IP68 rating for dust and water protection. It bears a glass body.
3. iPhone 11 Pro Max
The biggest iPhone in Apple’s lineup, the iPhone 11 Pro Max looks like an incremental upgrade over the iPhone XS Max but it brings some significant changes under the hood. There’s a triple camera setup at the back now, letting you choose between the Wide, Ultra Wide, and Telephoto lenses.
The Camera app makes it seamless to pick one or the other, presenting the Ultra Wide camera as a 0.5x zoom, which is certainly an interesting perspective. All this is backed by improved HDR and a brand new Night Mode, which means you get excellent image and video quality in most conditions. For the first time in years, Apple’s phones not only compete, but often surpass the competition in terms of low light photography.
An area where Apple’s dominance has never really been in doubt has been chip design, and the new Apple A13 Bionic chip continues this tradition. From intensive gaming sessions to editing 4K videos on the go, iPhone 11 Pro Max will handle everything you throw at it with ease, and then some.
There are significant gains to be had in the battery life department as well, and even users with the heaviest of workloads shouldn’t have a problem lasting a full day. Most typical users will find the iPhone 11 Pro Max is, in fact, capable of lasting up to two days on a single charge. iOS 13 brings a host of new features and the promise of regular software updates.
4. iPhone 11
The iPhone 11 is a successor to the iPhone XR and the name represents a reset in Apple’s naming strategy to emphasise that this is the “default” iPhone for everyone.
Powered by Apple’s own A13 Bionic chip, the iPhone 11 trio are the fastest smartphones you can buy today, with the closest competition at the time of filing this review being last year’s iPhone lineup.
Perhaps the biggest improvements are in the camera department, achieved by both software and hardware changes. On the rear, you get Wide and Ultra Wide 12-megapixel cameras that produce excellent image quality in nearly all situations.
Night Mode makes Apple competitive in low-light photography, and then some, which means the iPhone can finally compete favourably with offerings from Google, Samsung, and Huawei when it comes to night-time shots.
Just like the iPhone XR, this phone will offer you all-day battery life and iOS brings with it the promise of timely updates, something most Android OEMs falter with even today. However, it’s not a perfect phone.
The screen is the same low-resolution panel that we saw last year, and Apple continues to bundle a 5W charger with the phone, which is just appalling.
While the former is something most people won’t notice thanks to the panel’s excellent colour accuracy and brightness, the latter is a pain point you will need to live with every day, unless you decide to buy a faster charger separately.
All in all, the iPhone 11 is an unexpectedly compelling upgrade, thanks largely to the significantly improved low-light camera performance. If you have your eyes set on last year’s iPhone XR, spend a little bit extra and get this one instead.
