6 reasons golfers will love the new iPhone 11 Pro

September 11, 2019

Have you heard about the latest in game-improvement technology? It’s the iPhone 11 Pro (and Pro Max), which Apple CEO Tim Cook introduced in a splashy roll-out event Tuesday. Here are 6 reasons you might want to add one to your bag.

1. Better camera

If Ansel Adams were on Instagram, he’d want access to this new dual-camera system, which features extra-wide angle and telephoto options, all the better to shoot awe-inspiring snaps of your bucket-list-course expeditions. The whiz-bang technology makes it hard to take a bad shot, but regrettably your block-slice is still very much in play.

2. Extended battery life

Like the Energizer bunny, it keeps going and going — for four hours longer than the iPhone XS’s battery. Ideal for a leisurely weekend round, or anytime you’re paired with Bryson DeChambeau.

3. Swing ‘slofies’!

Selfies on the course are so yesterday. We’re talking ‘slofies,’ as in slo-mo video selfies that the iPhone 11 is capable of taking. There’s never been a more fun/cringe-inducing way to self-analyze your swing.

4. New golfy color scheme

And you thought golf balls came in a lot of colors. The iPhone 11 will come in six different shades: red, black, white, yellow, purple and … a golfy midnight green. We would have lobbied for Masters green, but this is still a positive development.

5. It’s more durable

Made of stainless steel and glass, the 11 is more shatter-resistant than its predecessors, so no worries when it clatters around your bag or flies out of the cart and crash-lands on the path. It’s also more water-resistant, which is helpful should you get caught in a rain storm, or decide to go full-Hulk and toss your bag into a lake.

 

6. The price is right

At $699, it’s the cheapest model since the iPhone 8, which leaves more money in the bank for your kids’ college fund. Or your golf habit. Whichever comes first.
