The iPhone 11 might not be the cheapest iPhone available – hey there iPhone SE (2020) – but it is still cheaper than its siblings, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. We think it strikes a great balance between performance and affordability, making it the best value phone in the iPhone 11 family.
And it doesn't have to cost the full price. While Apple deals are still pretty rare, there are some ways to save money on a new handset, especially now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are almost here.
And now that Apple has debuted the iPhone 12, there's no shortage of iPhone 11 deals right now...
The iPhone 11 is the lowest-specced of the range. It has an LCD screen and although it might not look as spectacular as the OLED panels on the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, it still provides a great viewing experience. At 6.1in it's a good size, and still big enough to watch movies and TV shows on and use for some light gaming. Plus it supports HDR, with both HDR10 and Dolby Vision available for compatible content.
Inside is the A13 Bionic chip, which lets it zip through apps and websites, and the camera is a great point and shoot. It all makes for a superb, affordable iPhone, and a real step up from the iPhone SE.

But it's not all about the visuals. The iPhone 11 has it on the sound front too, including support for Apple’s ‘spatial audio’ playback and Dolby Atmos.
The speakers sound pretty decent by smartphone standards, but plug in a pair of in-ear headphones (you’ll need Apple’s 3.5mm-to-Lightning dongle), or connect to some wireless earbuds, and you'll discover plenty of musicality.
In conclusion? The iPhone 11 is a great all-rounder, boasting a lot of the same skills as its more expensive siblings but for a lot less money. Pick the right deal, and you won't be disappointed.
