How large can iPhone 11 photos be enlarged?

I'm not sure where to post this question, hopefully here is OK.  I have some traveling coming up where I might not want to have my camera with me because of weight and I was thinking I might be able to get away with just my iPhone 11.  

Would you happen to know how large the photos can be enlarged before they start looking pixelated or messed up somehow?

iPhone cameras are 12MP, AFAIK.

Recommend you use an app to shoot RAW.

Past that, you should be able to create 11x14 prints from those shots. A lot depends (as always) on viewing distance.

G'day Ivy

One answer could be "as large as you want to make it" - ie: some shop window posters come from 16~20mpx images ~ people look at the image from the street, some distance away and so it looks "okay".... but a closeup view of the image shows pixels each the size of a grain of rice

I would be more concerned regarding the lens within the phone - you have no optical zooming capability, so every pic will (optically) be little more than a snapshot
