On Tuesday September 10th, Apple unveiled the new iPhone 11 among many other new products. During the press event, social media exploded with pictures, videos, and memes of the new iPhone. The new phone is set to have three different stages: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The iPhone 11 starts at $699 and jumps up to $1099 for the iPhone 11 Pro Max. All three phones feature an updated camera system with the regular iPhone 11 consisting of two cameras and the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max consisting of three. The updated cameras come with “night mode” for low-light settings, front-facing slow motion video, and an upgraded 12 megapixel front facing lens. As stated before, the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max comes with a newly developed three camera system featuring an ultra wide, telephoto, and regular lens. On top of the new camera system, the iPhone 11 features a new A13 Bionic processor, new phone colors, and an increase in screen brightness.
Besides the iPhone 11, Apple announced a plethora of other new products. Among the new products is Apple’s new streaming service Apple TV Plus, the iPad 7, the Apple Watch Series 5, and Apple’s new gaming service Apple Arcade. In my opinion, I think a lot of these new products are pretty cool. I am excited to see Apple’s new streaming service, especially because it is said to be in direct competition with Disney’s new streaming service Disney+. It will be interesting to see what movies and television shows will be included in the streaming service. I am also pretty excited to see what Apple is going to do with Apple Arcade. It’s going to be hard to get a ton of people to switch/pay for their gaming service because of the already popular consoles like Xbox, Playstation, and the Nintendo Switch, however it will definitely be an easy sell for video game fanatics. It will be interesting to see the way Apple markets the product, how they develop it in the future, and how original/unique/addicting their games are. If they intend to have games like the new Mario Kart apart of the subscription, I will definitely pay the extra money to play. All in all, even though Apple didn’t release any news about a game-changing product, it is still a pretty cool update from the multinational technology company.
