Apple has just unveiled three new iPhones that will be available later this month. Introducing the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. These devices were announced at Apple’s keynote event, they also discussed major iPhone camera updates, as well as lower prices and new subscription services.
Though there are no radical changes to the well-loved iPhone, there are still plenty of reasons why you should consider switching to this new phone. Before you buy, here’s everything you need to know about the latest Apple devices.
The iPhones have ditched the traditional monochrome colors and decided on a new palette of colors. The iPhone 11 will have a Purple, Green, Yellow, White, Black, and Red variations.
The back design is precision milled and sculpted from a single piece of glass. It is not just decorative as it is also sturdy. It has an IP68 water resistance rating for two meters for 30 minutes.
For the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max come they are available in Midnight Green, Space Gray, Silver, and Gold. These Pro models are furnished with a textured matte glass back plus a polished stainless steel band. Aside from equipping the Pro iPhones with what they call the “toughest glass ever.” They also have an IP68 water resistance rating for up to four meters for 30 minutes.
The newest iPhones are powered by the A13 Bionic processor that ensures faster performance. The Apple’s 13 Bionic CPU, which they are proudly promoting as the “fastest CPU ever in a smartphone,” which they also claim that it also has “the fastest GPU in a smartphone,” too.
It also has the new Super Retina XDR display plus a custom-designed OLED. This will provide you an HDR viewing experience for high-definition videos. The Super Retina XDR will also feature True Tone for a more natural viewing experience.
However, the feature that is turning heads is the camera hardware and software. The three cameras on the back of the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max are undeniably Apple’s highest risks for this year’s series.
These handsets are first to have a triple-camera array, with Apple attaching a new 12MP wide-angle lens beside the primary and telephoto lenses. This setup will enable you to capture more though you have to live with the bulge on the backside of the iPhone due to its square camera hump.
Like Google, Apple is also upgrading its camera software. The iPhone 11 lineup will sport a dedicated Night mode for better performance even in dark lighting. This feature will kick in automatically whenever you are shooting in the dark.
Longer Battery Life
Apple said that the battery life has improved to up to five hours versus last year’s models (for the iPhone 11 Pro Max). Even with all of its additional computing power and graphics performance, Apple claims that its battery life can keep up. iPhone 11 Pro offers up to four more hours of battery life versus the iPhone XS. The iPhone 11 Pro Max has bested the iPhone XS Max for up to five hours more.
Access to Apple TV+
Apple TV+ will be launched on Nov. 1, and the company states that new original shows will be released every month. Apple announces the launch of The Morning Show, with Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, and Reese Witherspoon. They also announced the high-production-value and futuristic See, among many others. Though the content library will be not as extensive at first Apple is still tempting users to come onboard.
Mainly because the biggest shocker about TV+ is that it will be priced at $4.99 (as of this writing), which is remarkably cheaper than most of its competitors. Also, Apple will give you a full year subscription for free when you buy a new iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Undeniable with where this is going, Apple is grooming the TV+ to compete against streaming giants like Netflix, Hulu, along with newcomers like Disney Plus and HBO MAX.
