iPhone 6 user here. I’m ready to jump to the 11 pro but just noticed something: did they increase the size of the bezel compared to the X/XS? I know that overall the 11 pro has increased in size but the dimensions of the screen itself have not changed. Is it just me?

Then you have magic eyes. I couldn't visibly notice any difference when using the 2 devices
I didn't notice it either, I just read that it had been increased by some amount. Maybe screen protectors covering the entire glass won't fit, or something. I got one of these for $2 (with the exact cutout for the screen for the XS Max) and I'm quite statisfied.

If it increased, they got bigger by an infinitesimal amount. Don't let that stop you from getting your new phone. 🤣 Just think about how much bigger the battery got. Now that's a sizable increase.

I'm having battery envy myself. *Sigh*

The bezels looks the same as on the X/Xs. If there's a difference, its minimal at most.

FWIW, the glass dimensions are the same (0.01 diff in height), but the active area is slightly smaller on the 11 Pro (134.95 x 62.33) vs the XS (135.75 x 63.13). That makes the bezels 0.4mm greater.

Minor differences, and given the OP date, the phone has probably been purchased already.

Haha, some what. I went with the 11 due to the oled screen bothering my eyes. But I was able to tell the difference in bezels. Maybe I have microscopes for eyes. My glasses are pretty thick as well 👓 🤷🏽‍♂️

I noticed the bezels being bigger as well, but you are getting a way better battery, so there's that. The bezel difference is very negligible, and to an untrained eye, it looks the same.
