Last year’s iPhone names were just odd. iPhone Xr meant nothing but it married a Roman numeral to a letter from the alphabet. Most people called it iPhone 10. iPhone Xs and Xs Max had the same problem.
That changed. Alfred Ng:
Apple is dropping the “X” for its latest iPhone, and returning to its naming roots with the iPhone 11, much to the disappointment of Roman numeral fanatics everywhere.
Good riddance. iPhone Xr sticks around but at a lower price point.
Just because the iPhone’s naming structure is going back to conventional numbers doesn’t mean a regression in features. The iPhone 11 boasts faster Face ID unlocking, Wi-Fi 6 support, longer battery life and dual cameras with 12-megapixel lenses.
And that’s the less expensive iPhone 11 model.
