iPhone 11 Pro stocked on all networks including EE, Three, Vodafone and O2

If you’re planning to get one of the new iPhone 11 models come September 20, then it really won’t matter which network you’re on.

All the major UK networks have confirmed to Metro.co.uk that they will be ranging the new devices, which were unveiled in California last night.

The choice comes down to an iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Max. Each one comes with different options for storage space and colours.

EE, Vodafone, O2, Three, BT, Sky Mobile and Virgin Media all confirmed they will be offering customers the new phones – with contract prices to follow in due course. All the networks are opening the option to pre-order the new devices on Friday.

If you’re interested in buying one outright and then picking up a separate SIM to go with it, then the prices are as follows:

  • iPhone 11 starts at £729
  • iPhone 11 Pro starts at £1,049
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max starts at £1,149

Ru Bhikha, mobiles expert at uSwitch.com, said that although there was no expectation of a major iPhone revamp this year, the newest devices and their focus on taking better photos would please many.

‘Expectations were low ahead of the launch of the iPhone 11, with leaks suggesting few exciting innovations. But what Apple revealed will give fans something to salivate about,’ he said.

‘The camera is one area where Apple will no doubt impress their loyal customer base, with features such as low-light and wide-angle added to compete with their Android counterparts.

‘The iPhone 11 offers two lenses: wide and ultra-wide. The ultra-wide lens offers a 120-degree view, allowing for epic panoramic shots and for taking snaps in restricted, close-up situations. The iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max have an additional telephoto lens, which gives users the power of a 4x optical zoom.’

However, Mr Bhikha warned that the lack of wider new features could hamper Apple, pointing to the lack of 5G support in its new devices.

‘We keep seeing that consumers aren’t willing to upgrade their smartphone unless there’s a good reason to, which means the iPhone 11’s lack of new features could prove problematic.

‘The next big thing for smartphones is 5G, which could be more bad news for Apple, as the iPhone 11 is not expected to offer this fifth-generation technology.’

Several other smartphone makers, including Samsung, Huawei and OnePlus, have already released 5G-enabled devices following the start of network rollout in the UK and elsewhere earlier this year.
