18W fast charger in the box
As I’ve lamented about countless times before, previous iPhone releases have been stuck with a measly 5W power adapter since forever. Even the baseline iPhone 11 ships with a 5W adapter, despite its ability to fast charge to 50% in under 30 minutes. Thankfully, the iPhone 11 Pro comes with a new fast-charge-capable 18W power adapter, the same adapter included with the iPad Pro.
Super Retina XDR display
The Super Retina XDR display features the same 458 pixel density and resolution as its forerunners, the iPhone XS and XS Max, but there are definite enhancements to be found here.
The iPhone 11 Pro Super Retina XDR OLED display sports a contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1 versus the 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio on the iPhone XS Super Retina HD display.
There’s also enhanced max brightness levels on the iPhone 11 Pro. Compared to the iPhone XS Max, which featured a max brightness of 625 nits, the iPhone 11 Pro sports a max brightness of 800 nits in typical bright conditions. This increased brightness is handy when using your phone outdoors in sunlight, as it can make the display easier to see.
Additionally, there is a second brightness level found on the iPhone 11 Pro. The Super Retina XDR display can venture up to a whopping 1200 nits when playing back 4K HDR movies or when viewing HDR photos.
Even with these enhancements in mind, the new display on the iPhone 11 Pro is up to 15% more efficient than the Super Retina HD display on the iPhone XS, lending to the device’s huge leap in overall battery life.
