For the asphalt paving, rock crushing, ready-mix loving hard workers out there, you might be wondering why you should care about Apple’s new iPhone? You’re probably thinking your 4-year-old iPhone 6s works just fine. You read the news articles about the new features, a “slofie”? What’s that? Monolight portrait photos? Who cares!
You need real features that get the job done. Fortunately, we at Stockpile Reports determined 7 ways the new iPhone 11 Pro will make getting the job done a lot easier.Read: Review of iPhone XS Max
Let’s face it, seeing anything on a phone screen in bright daylight is near impossible. That’s because screens in the past weren’t bright enough. The new iPhone 11 Pro’s is screen 65% brighter than the XS so you won’t have to hold your hand awkwardly above the phone to block out the daylight while on site.
Do you feel like your phone is always tethered to a phone charger just to get through the day? Thanks to improved efficiency with the iPhone 11 Pro’s processor, you now have 4-5 more hours of battery life. This means you can charge your phone once and accomplish work with it all day.
Even though your battery life is 5 hours longer, sometimes your day at the worksite starts before sunlight and lasts late into the evening. Fortunately, the new iPhone 11 Pro comes with an 18-watt charger that can recharge 50% of your battery in less than 25 minutes. In the time it takes to chow down some dinner, you’ll be recharged and ready to go.
Measuring stockpiles with the iPhone where space is tight is about to get much easier. The new wide-angle lens has a 48 degrees wider viewing angle. This means you can stand next to a stockpile and get top to bottom of the pile on the screen with ease.
Measuring stockpiles in dark sheds or early morning with the sun right in your eyes is now possible due to the improved dynamic range sensor. No more failed measurements because it’s too dark or sun flaring in your camera.
Do you ever need to pull off your safety glasses and angle your face just the right way to get your iPhone to unlock? The new iPhone 11 Pro Max has an improved face sensor which means you can unlock the phone without having to angle the phone just right…and it will unlock 30% faster.
The new iPhone 11 Pros are now waterproof in water up to 13 feet for 30 minutes. You don’t have to worry about your iPhone slipping into a mud puddle or your friends shoving you into a lake with your phone still in your pocket.
While it may be hard to get excited about a phone that looks like the back has a 3 burner cooktop, the iPhone 11 Pro will make your day a bit easier. If you bought last year’s model, you most likely don’t need to upgrade. However, if you have an iPhone 7 or older, it’s worth the upgrade. Ultimately, your hunting and fishing trophy photos will look a whole lot better!
