iPhone 11: Meet The First Owners

Mobile Phone

Apple released the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, and Apple Watch Series 5 on Friday, September 20.

As per tradition, Apple fans line up outside major Apple stores in New York, Tokyo, Singapore, Dubai, Paris, and Sydney. In New York, Apple CEO Tim Cook surprised Apple visitors in welcoming them to the newly revamped Apple Fifth Avenue.


Meeting The First iPhone Owners From Sydney, Singapore, And Dubai

Muhannad Al Nadaf finally is the first person to get an iPhone on launch day in Sydney. The 21-year-old has tried and failed, the last five years to be the first iPhone owner in Sydney.

“I’ve been standing up since literally 3 a.m.” Al Nadaf said. He narrated how he could not sit the whole time because he brought a blanket instead of a chair. Al Nadaf could not place his blanket on the floor because it was wet from when the council came to wash it.

He added, “There are a lot of clubs on this road, all the drunk people were coming out and they kept abusing me.”

The long wait was worth it when Al Nadaf has replaced the five-year first-in-line Mazen Kourouche. This year, Kourouche arrived at 6 a.m. but was still second-in-place.

In Singapore, 17-year-old Aidid is the first iPhone 11 owner. He came from Malaysia and went to Singapore with his sister on September 20.

Aidid bought both the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro. He also bought the new Apple Watch Series 5.

Sulaiman Kazhunthammal is the first lucky owner of an iPhone 11 in Dubai. The Indian national came to Dubai Mall on the 20th of September along with all the other Apple enthusiasts.

“I came here yesterday around five o’clock here,” Kazhunthammal said. He added that he was “very happy” to be the first iPhone11 owner in Dubai.


The New iPhone 11

The iPhone 11 Pro is the first iPhone to have a triple camera. So as the 11 Pro Max. But only iPhone 11 and 11 Pro Max with dual sim settings for China.

The 11 Pro is the smallest among the three with dimensions of 144 x 71.4 x 8.1 mm (5.67 x 2.81 x 0.32 in). iPhone 11 is bigger with dimensions of 150.9 x 75.7 x 8.3 mm (5.94 x 2.98 x 0.33 in) while 11 Pro Max is the largest among the three with dimensions of 158 x 77.8 x 8.1 mm (6.22 x 3.06 x 0.32 in).

The difference in weight follows the order of the difference in dimensions with the 11 Pro the lightest and 11 Pro Max the heaviest. iPhone 11 differs from 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max with its aluminum frame. The 11 Pro and Pro Max both have stainless steel frames.

All three new phones run on the latest iOS 13 and Apple A13 Bionic Chipset. iPhone 11 once again differs from the 11 Pro and Pro Max without the optical zoom and ultra-wide lenses that the triple-camera of the Pro and Pro Max offer.

The 11 Pro Max has the largest battery capacity among three with its Non-removable Li-Ion 3969 mAh battery (15.04 Wh). While all three batteries are capable of fast battery charging with 50% in 30 minutes.

The new iPhone is available in black, green, yellow, purple, red, and white. The 11 Pro and Pro Max are both available in matte gray, matte silver, matte gold, and matte midnight green.

iPhone 11 is available starting at $880, 11 Pro at $1,300, and the 11 Pro Max at $1,400.
