Customers can either pre-order, paying the full amount, or do contract pre-orders and upgrade on existing contracts through MTN, Vodacom, or Telkom at an iStore. 

The new iPhone 11, announced last week, has a two-lens camera configuration and is available in six colours: white, black, yellow, red, lavender, and green.

It comes with a longer battery life of between 15 and 16 hours, faster charger, an improved selfie camera, and an improved face ID. 

Meanwhile, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max both have a new three-lens camera configuration, which includes a telephoto and ultrawide lens, and are available in midnight green, space grey, silver, and gold. 

Apple promises four more hours of usage for those phones than the iPhone Xs and Xs Pro could manage, and they come with a new fast-charging 18-watt adapter. 

Both the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max have a crisper retina display compared to the iPhone 11. 

The iPhone 11 Pro Max, however, has a 6.5-inch screen compared to the iPhone Pro’s 5.8-inch screen.
