The new iPhone 11 phones.

This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

At a Sept. 10 press event in Cupertino, California, Apple launched its trio of new iPhones: the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The phones feature the powerful new A13 Bionic processor, multiple rear cameras and a bevy of camera and video tools like Night Mode. The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max start at $699, $999 and $1,099, respectively. 

Compared to last year's models, the new iPhones all have a 12-megapixel front-facing camera that's been bumped up from last year's 7-megapixel lens. Each iPhone also has one additional rear camera compared to its 2018 counterpart. To see how else they compare to the iPhone XRXS and XS Max, peep the chart below. One of the most significant camera features is called Deep Fusion which promises to improve the detail and lower the image noise of photos taken in medium to low light situations like indoors. The feature is in beta, but could change how your iPhone photos look.

As one of the most popular phones in the world, the new iPhones face a challenging market. With iPhone sales falling 12% in the fiscal third quarter, profits expected to dip to $9.6 billion and more people trading in their iPhones for Androids, Apple's new flagship phones need to be compelling enough to draw in new customers or keep current customers interested. Not to mention its main rival Samsung took the wraps off its Note 10, Note 10 Plus and Note 10 5G on Aug. 7, and the phones are looking pretty great so far.
