Apple Event 2019: iPhone 11, iPad, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, Apple Watch
Posted On September 10, 2019
iPhone 11 (Pro and Max)
The expected iPhone 11 debuted with a dual-camera configuration in a new design in six colors. Features include Dolby Atmos audio, Wi-Fi 6, an ultrawide camera lens and enhanced camera features. You’ll be able to take landscape selfies and videos and slo-mo video. It gets a power boost in the form of a new A13 Bionic processor (with a faster graphics processor).
The iPhone 11 Pro has a “Super Retina XDR” OLED display that’s based on the Pro XDR Display that has similar specs but is not OLED. It has the fidget-spinner mocked tri-camera setup, a new matte finish, and uses the A13 Bionic as well. Apple claims longer battery life, though. It comes bundled with the fast-charge adapter.
The cameras are all new and include ultrawide — for Apple’s claim of 4x zoom — edge-to-edge focus signals and updated signal processing. Apple was also very proud of its new Deep Fusion technology, a nine-shot multishot mode that merges them to deliver an HDR image. It starts at $999, and the larger 11 Pro Max starts at $1,099. Preorders start Friday and ship on Sept. 20.
The company is replacing its sixth-generation model with a new 10.2-inch seventh-generation version optimized for the new iPad OS. It’s got improved brightness, a better viewing angle, an A10 Fusion chip and adds Smart Connector plus a new smart keyboard cover. So you can enjoy all the new games and content! For the same price as before, $329, starting at the end of the month.
These are the games demo’d when Apple Arcade was being introduced:
Konami — Frogger in Toy Town
Capcom — Shinsekai Deep Sea
Annapurna Interactive — Sayonara Wild Hearts
Apple TV Plus launches November 1 in over 100 countries, for another $4.99 per month for a family subscription.
Apple Watch Series 5
The new Watch Series 5 features a new always-on display that can drop to as low as 1Hz refresh to save power, as well as a compass and optimized faces. And it has fancy new bands and faces! GPS models will start at $399 and $499 for cell models. Series 3 stays in the line, but the price has dropped to $199 to start. The company also announced three new health studies: hearing, heart and movement and menstrual-cycle tracking.
