Apple unveils stunning new iPhones

Meanwhile, Apple TV+ will launch in more than 100 countries on 1 November at $4.99 a month.

Like the other new models, the iPhone is powered by an "A13 bionic" chip made in-house by Apple and infused with machine learning as well as high-performance graphics and processing capabilities.

The annual event in the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, Calif., is typically Apple's splashiest and dedicated to its flagship devices, but the company had been expected to be in a "holding pattern" until it introduces its first 5G-compatible iPhone next year, which will be able to take advantage of faster mobile data networks. Where the iPhone 11 now features two cameras on the rear, the more expensive iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max feature a third telephoto zoom lens, making it more suited to hardcore photographers and videographers than the two-lens iPhone 11.

But Apple's streaming service undercuts the price of its rivals.

Apple has kept the price lower than it's predecessor iPhone XR ( ₹76,990), which (according to Canalys) was the highest selling handset from last year's crop of iPhones with 47 million global shipments after it hit stores in Q4 2018 until Q2 2019. The new 7th generation of the product will have a larger screen of 10.2 inches, up from 9.7 inches, and support for the Apple Pencil and Smart Connector, which lets users attach Apple's own keyboards to the device to turn it into a pseudo-laptop.

Apple unveiled its iPhone 11 models Tuesday, touting upgraded, ultra-wide cameras as it updated its popular smartphone line-up and cut its entry price to USD699. A new Apple Watch 5 comes with an always-on display and the ability to sign up for several new clinical health research studies. Apple also reduced the price of Apple Watch Series 3 to a starting price of USD199.

The Google Pixel 4's announcement date may have just leaked

To start, the basic iPhone 11 model will now come with a brand new dual-camera setup, which features one 12-megapixel main camera with Optical Image Stablisation (OIS) and another 12-megapixel camera equipped with a wide-angle lens with 120-degree field of view.

The line-up of original shows will include "The Morning Show", "Dickinson", "See", "For All Mankind" and "The Elephant Queen". But people throughout the world had a lot of things to express about the new iPhone. In addition to them, Apple also announced a bunch of services that will be available on them along with older iPhones as well. Some industry insiders, however, have questioned Apple's content strategy.

Given that the new iPhones have some incremental upgrades to processor and camera technology, consumers who bought iPhones in the past one-two years may not have the appetite to upgrade immediately.

Apple TV+ will arrive about two weeks before a new Disney+ streaming television service, which costs USD2 more per month.

Apple will open its Arcade game service on September 19, also charging USD4.99 monthly.
