As expected earlier, Apple launched its new iPhone series, a new iPad and the new Apple Watch 5 series in their latest Annual event which happened recently on Cupertino. As a genuine Apple user, the event was quite underwhelming than what we have expected from the tech giant Apple. Here is a quick look at all the latest launches.
iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max
The much-anticipated smartphone of this year, the iPhone 11 series was launched by Apple starting at a price tag of $699 for the base model which is the iPhone 11. It is the new version of iPhone XR series which was the top-selling iPhone line up in 2018. Apple launched the Pro version of the iPhone 11 as well along with a bigger screen which is the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
There are not many major design changes apart from the double camera system for the iPhone 11 and the triple cameras for iPhone 11 Pro and Max. The front looks almost identical to what we have seen last year and the internals got a spike up like Apple A13 Bionic processor, better GPU, etc. The major changes are on the camera where we have an extra wide-angle lens for iPhone 11 and 2 of them on the Max and Max pro. The iPhone 11 will cost you $999 where the Max version with a bigger screen costs $1099. New iPhone 11 comes with 6 different colors as we saw the Apple logo on the invite.
This was something more exciting to me from the overall Apple event. Yes, a New iPad from Apple with the fusion chips, 10.2-inch Retina display which now supports the Apple Pencil and smart keyboard, just like the iPad Pro. New iPads comes along with iPad OS with a starting price of just $329 which is quite amazing! At first look there are nothing much changed in New iPad when comparing to the 2018 iPad apart from a small bump on the screen size.
Apple Watch Series 5
Apple launched their new Watch Series – the Apple Watch Series 5 which comes with an always-on display, better battery, IP 68 ratings for waterproof, a complete fitness tracking set up and of course as Apple said – It tells you the TIME! Apple Watch Series 5 launched at a starting price of 399$ which can go up to 799$.
This was something unexpected from Apple this fall. Apple TV+ is a new streaming service from Apple which is available for just $4.99/month. If you are opting to buy any of the launches mentioned above, you will get a full one-year subscription of Apple TV+ for FREE! This service is exclusively available on Apple devices which starts from November 1.
Something is fascinating coming up from Apple for gamers. Apple Arcade is a special gaming service from Apple which allows users to play some specific games developed only for the Arcade either online/offline. Users have to subscribe for a monthly fee of $4.99 to try this feature which works seamlessly on any other Apple device you own. You can share the subscription up to 5 family members as well.
Apple made some serious attempt to revamp their devices internally but overall the design perspective never changed much. Apple TV+ and the Arcade is a bit ambitious for Apple at the moment, but we need to wait and see how users accept these into their daily life!
