The broader market was modestly lower, with losses contained by a report that China was considering a deal to purchase more American goods ahead of the next round of trade meetings between USA and Chinese negotiators.

The iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro also include the same A13 Bionic processor.

Taking on Samsung, Pixel and OnePlus, Apple has launched three new iPhones, packed with top-notch features.

Closing out Apple's presentation was the reveal of three new iPhone smartphones: the $699-and-up iPhone 11, the $999-and-up iPhone 11 Pro, and the $1,099-and-up iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Apple TV+ will arrive about two weeks before a new Disney+ streaming television service. Disney+, which is set to launch on November 19, will set users back $8.99 monthly.
