Merger proposed of iPhone 11 Pro into iPhone 11. I'm not the nom. {{u|waddie96}} {talk} 14:20, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Strongly Oppose the merge. The iPhone X and iPhone 8 are both seperate articles, even though they were released at the same time. This also applies to the iPhone XS and iPhone XR, as well as the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S. Devices in Apple's Pro lineup, such as the MacBook Pro and MacBook, and iPad Pro and iPad (7th generation), each have their own articles, so I don't see the difference with the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

  • Oppose the merge. The iPhone XR and iPhone XS each have their own article, so why can't the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro?? Georgia guy (talk) 13:38, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Support the merge. The name Pro only denotes an improved variant of the same generation of iPhone. I actually support merging iPhone XR and iPhone XS as this will reduce ambiguity and resources used to maintain articles.Alexceltare2 (talk) 13:47, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose the merge. We have separate articles for the MacBook and iPad Pro, so it makes sense for this to have its own page too. HurricaneGeek2002 (talk) 14:09, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Support. Pro simply indicates a variant of the iPhone 11. The article should rather discuss the variant in the body. {{u|waddie96}} {talk} 14:22, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Oppose per User:Georgia guy. The 11 and 11 Pro have different displays, cameras, etc. Syntaxlord (talk) 14:24, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose while the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro share some common characteristics (A13 SoC, Wide & Ultra Wide camera, etc.) there are enough differences between the two models for each to have a standalone article. The reception each phone will receive will not be the same as well. Reviewers will likely compare iPhone 11 to its predecessors the iPhone XR and iPhone 8 while the iPhone 11 Pro will be compared to iPhone XS and iPhone X. Trying to merge iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro (and even iPhone XR and iPhone XS) together will create hard to read articles and likely cause even more confusion to casuals who don't understand why Apple has named their phones in this manner. Keeping iPhone XR and iPhone 11 as separate articles its easier to establish that they are successors to the iPhone 8. The same is true for the other models, keeping iPhone XS and iPhone 11 Pro separate its easier to establish that they are successors to the iPhone X and are the flagships. The only problem with recent articles about iPhones in general is they are not as developed as previous articles like the iPhone 6. If articles about the more recent phones like the XR and XS were more developed then we wouldn't need to merge them. Alucard 16❯❯❯ chat? 15:13, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Strong Oppose iPhone XR and iPhone XS have separate articles, and so do iPhone 8 and iPhone X, although they were both released at the same time. Their successors also should. Apple intended them to be different phones (see Apple website:https://www.apple.com/iphone/) so there should be separate articles, similar to the past two years of iPhone releases. Taewangkorea (talk) 16:24, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose There's too much a lot of technical differences (and also the descriptions of each model in infobox) to be merged into one article.Consumers (talk) 18:02, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Strongly support iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to iPhone 6 and iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, are parts of the same family. iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max too. But iPhone XR and iPhone XS are not part of the same. --Panam2014 (talk) 18:54, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose This section of the iPhone Apple website here: https://www.apple.com/iphone/, gives the answer. Two sections separately for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, logically it's the same for the articles.Consumers (talk) 19:06, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Pretty much everything I wanted to say has already been said. The iPhone 8 & 8 Plus, for example, are almost the same phone, and therefore, they shared pages, on both Apple's website and Wikipedia. However, the iPhone XS & XR are very different, and have separate pages. The iPhone 11 and 11 Pro are in a near identical situation. This makes the argument that 6-8 line share pages very weak. Plus, because they're so different, the article would be too confusing and hard to read. So yeah, I don't think these pages should be merged. JdRDMS 9:41, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose keep the same as the prior generation, XS and XR separately, 11 Pro and 11 separately. —DIYeditor (talk) 23:20, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose they're different phones - every previous generation of normal/budget iphone has had separate pages for each model 24.56.77.198 (talk) 23:37, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Wikiped201820 (talk) 23:58, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose iPhone 11 is the successor to the iPhone XR. However, it is not a direct successor to the iPhone XS (which is succeeded by the iPhone 11 Pro). Cosecant57 (talk) 12:09, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose As stated above, the iPhone XR and iPhone XS are separate, so what makes this any different? Also, it would get pretty confusing if you tried to stuff all the different specs into the same article.Thanks, EDG 543 (talk) 13:42, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose Apparently people think that the 11 and 11 Pro are like the XS and XS Max, or the 8 and the 8 plus. The 11 Pro is NOT just a modified 11, it is an ENTIRELY SEPARATE phone. MacOS Master (talk) 9:26, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose The 11 and 11 Pro have enough differences to be seperate. The pro is the first professional iPhone, which makes it notable. --Frmorrison (talk) 19:01, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose It should not get moved into 1 page. 2 pages wo — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.173.183.221 (talk) 19:45, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose, keep separate - two different products. 11 is mainstream. 11pro is 50% more expensive or more, has a different number of cameras, has a different screen, etc. XavierItzm (talk) 21:37, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Strong Oppose iPhone XR and iPhone XS are separate articles, so should this. Let's keep things in line with what we've done in the past. Apple calls them different phones, and they have different pages on the Apple website. MattSandy34 (talk) 15:26, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
