The iPhone 11 is here but is it worth the upgrade?

Posted Wednesday, 11 September 2019 ‐ CNN

San Francisco (CNN Business)Apple (AAPL) unveiled its latest slate of iPhones on Tuesday at a widely-covered media event at its campus in Cupertino, California.The new lineup includes the iPhone 11, an entry-level device, as well as the higher-end iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, which have four-figure price tags.The company's iPhone sales have slumped in recent quarters in part because consumers are waiting longer to upgrade their smartphones. So, is it actually worth it to upgrade to these new models?The short answer: It depends how much you care about better cameras and improved battery life.Here's a look at the key differences between the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro and two comparable models from the previous year: the iPhone XR, which was the low-end model released in 2018, and the iPhone XS, the higher-end model that year.
