The iPhone 11 Pro is the new peers of iPhone XS, iPhone 11 is the new generation of iPhone XR, and iPhone 11 Pro Max is the new generation of iPhone XS Max.

But if you are an owner of iPhone XS and you want to switch your iPhone 11 instead of the iPhone 11 Pro. In spite of everything, the Apple iPhone 11 comes in several colors, it is $300 less inexpensive and packs almost all of the similar high-end specifications as the 11 Pro.

Apple iPhone 11 vs iPhone XS

Here are some significant differences of iPhone 11 and iPone XS:



One of the most major differences between these two devices is in fact their sizes. The iPhone 11 is 150.9 x 75.7 x 8.3mm in measurement, whereas the iPhone XS is 143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7 mm. This possibly will not look like a big difference, but when you hold the two iPhones, you will most probably notice that the iPhone 11 is heavier, difficult to fit in your pocket, and harder to use with single hand. It feels big.

One more difference you will observe is bezels. The iPhone 11 has more noticeable bezels around the screen.

End note:

The XS is sleeker and slimmer.


The iPhone XS has an outstanding 5.8-inch OLED screen with 2,436 x 1,125-pixel resolution. The iPhone 11 has a 6.1-inch LCD screen with 1,792 x 828-pixel resolution. However in this situation, bigger is not better.

The XS gives the amusing colors of just about any mobile available in the market. Reviewers have admired its nearly flawless blacks. The iPhone 11’s screen is not bad by any aspects, but an LCD panel cannot duplicate that contrast.

End note:

The iPhone XS has a good display.

Battery life

The iPhone 11 has an improved battery life over the XS. Tom’s Guide clocked the iPhone XS in at 9 hrs 41 min of nonstop web browsing, whereas the iPhone 11 taken 11 hrs 20 min. In addition, if you purchased the XS last year, you will have less battery life than the iPhone 11.

The iPhone 11 has improved battery life.


If I told you which mobile to purchase immediately, the reply would be the iPhone 11. Its starts at $699, whereas the XS starts from $999.

However you already spent almost $1000 on the iPhone XS, so you would have to decide if its worth trading it in . The trade in value will surely make it a excellent deal  for the  iPhone 11. Eventually, you have to decide which device would be best for you.

End note:

The iPhone 11 is better value.



The XS has a good camera, however it is missing several features that may considerably improve the lives of photographers. If you’re one of those guys, you will have be excited to purchase iPhone 11.

Both the XS and 11 have a dual-camera system comprising a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens. The XS has a 12-MP telephoto lens, whereas the 11 has a 12-MP ultra-wide lens with a 120° field of view.

For iPhone photographers, the ultra-wide lens is perhaps the appreciated feature. If you need top-quality mobile pictures, you should avoid the zoom feature more than 2x mark.

End note:

The iPhone 11 has an improved front shooter.


The iPhone 11, as company claims, has the fastest handset processor across the globe. Reviews specify that the iPhone 11 has more powerful processor than the XS.

If you are a fan of mobile games you may see a minor difference in quality, but if you are most of the time, using your phone for browsing and texting, you definitely don’t want to pay for the additional power. If you are a photographer then processor matters a lot.

End note:

The iPhone 11 has an improved processor, but this generally matters for photographers

The iPhone XS is an outstanding device with a good display than the latest iPhone 11. iPhone XS is much sleeker and slimmer and having good processor. Whereas iPhone 11 have improved battery life, bit faster than XS and comparatively cheaper. If you are a smartphone photographer we will recommend iPhone 11.
