  • iPhone 11

  • iPhone 11 Pro Max. 

 

What are the key qualities of the iPhone 11?

iPhone 11 has just the right amount of everything. Important features to highlight include: 

 

  • Gorgeous 6.1-inch all-screen Liquid Retina LCD*.
    • The display has rounded corners that follow a beautiful curved design, and these corners are within a standard rectangle. When measured as a standard rectangle shape, the screen is 6.06 inches diagonally. Actual viewable area is less.
  • Water resistant up to 2 meters for 30 minutes.
  • All new dual-camera system.
    • 12MP Wide (26mm) camera. 120-degree field of view for four times more scene.
    • Ultra Wide (13mm) cameras. 100% Focus Pixels for up to three times faster autofocus in low light.
  • Shoot and edit the highest quality videos natively the same as you can with photos all on your iPhone. 
    • 4K video at 60 fps on every camera. Rotate, crop, and add filters as easily as you do with photos.
  • Night Mode is a new feature that is automatically activated in low-light situations without the need for flash. From candlelit birthdays to campfires on the beach, the new Night Mode delivers natural low-light shots – automatically.
  • Smart HDR recognized faces and treats them differently than the rest of the picture drastically enhancing the subject of our photos to create a truly stunning photo. 
  • Slofies - Slow Motion Selfies. Your front facing camera now has the capability to take videos in slo-mo at 120 fps.
  • Power through your day. All-day battery life* with the A13 Bionic, the fastest chip in a smartphone. 10 hours of video streaming and 17 hours of video playback.

    • Fast-charge capable with an 18W adapter (sold separately).
  • Privacy is built in. Face ID is the most secure facial authentication in a smartphone. It doesn’t store or share your photo, and it’s more secure than Touch ID.

Re: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max FAQ

Will you have the unlocked version for preorder or will I have to wait several months?  I would rather buy the unlocked version from BB than from Apple on launch so I can use the purchase towards maintaining my elite plus membership.  I also earn points which equals money

Re: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max FAQ

I love being able to make large purchases to earn back points too, @BuckarooKangaro! With that being said, it appears that we will be selling the new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max for the three major carriers in the United States (Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint). We do have the options of making a one time payment for the phone you wish to purchase, but, again, these payment options are for an iPhone that would be tied to a carrier. These new iPhones will come Universally Unlocked, which means that they will be unlocked only for these carriers in the United States. For an unlocked phone, this would need to be purchased through Apple. 

 

I hope this helps!

Re: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max FAQ

Hi,
Thanks for the information. Unfortunately, Best Buy does not have the Midnight Green color option for the iPhone 11 Pro Max available to pick up in store. I would have saved about $100 with this option. I will have to look elsewhere this year.

Re: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max FAQ

Quick update, had to order the 256GB version of the iPhone 11 Pro Max for AT&T in order to be able to pick up in store. Order complerte, now just have to wait for the email once it arrives in store. Even though it costs me $150 more in price, I needed the additional storage anyways, comes out to $5 extra a month. Still can't believe Apple slaps the Pro name on a device that starts with only 64GB, should have been 128GB as the baseline. Looking forward to get my Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro Max next Friday. Oh, and I did not see the extra 1,250 points for upgrading through My Best Buy Mobile that I usually get, will these points be added on later?

Re: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max FAQ

I'm glad to hear that you were able to get the phone that works for you, and through us in the end! Thanks for updating us with what had happened. Smiley Happy

 

In regard to the 1,250 points that you would receive for upgrading with us and for being a member of the My Best Buy Mobile program, those points should be reflected in your account within 15-20 days from the day of purchase. So be on the lookout for those within the upcoming weeks. 

 

Don't hesitate to let us know of anything else that comes up!

 

Thanks,
