iPhone 11: The Next Generation of Smartphone
First up, the one that we’ve all been waiting for – the next generation of iPhone. It’s finally here. Sporting the ‘toughest ever’ glass for an iPhone on the front and back, the brand-new iPhone 11 comes in Purple, White, Yellow, Green, Black, and PRODUCT(RED).
On the rear, it packs a dual camera setup including a 12-megapixel wide lens and 12-megapixel ultra-wides lens. There’s also a new semantic rending feature as well as some updates to Night Mode and the much-loved Portrait Mode. On such update—that certainly won’t go unnoticed—is the ability to take amazing portraits of pets as well as people. Oh, and the camera interface has been redesigned too, making it more user-friendly than ever!
Under the hood, there’s the A13 bionic chipset that also happens to include the fastest graphic processing unit on an iPhone yet. That’s excellent news for anybody who is interested in mobile gaming as it means a better, smoother look. When it comes to the battery, iPhone 11 will offer an hour more power than the previous iPhone XR model.
iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max: Seriously Advanced Smartphones
Next up, there’s a new addition to the iPhone line-up and it’s something that we’ve never seen before now. Take a deep breath and then say hello to iPhone 11 Pro. Made from a surgical-grade steel, glass on the rear and a cool matt texture finish, it’s a thing of true beauty. It comes in Space Grey, Silver, Gold and Midnight Green.
The new Pro phone also comes in two sizes, with the standard measuring in at 5.8 inches and the Max version larger at 6.5 inches. Both devices showcase the brand-new Super Retina XDR Display. Sounds rather snazzy.
It runs the same A13 bionic chipset that the standard iPhone 11 will have. Kicking things up a gear, the battery life is supposed to last four hours longer than that of iPhone XS. Bonus: There’s an 18-watt fast-charge adapter included in the box too, which means that you can juice up super quickly when you are running low.
However, it’s the camera setup that truly marks this iPhone model as the leader of the pack. On the rear, there’s a triple camera setup which includes a 12-megapixel wide angle, a 12-megapixel telephoto and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens. It doesn’t end there. There’s also better 4K video filming, an updated Optical zoom, and brand new in-app editing features.
iPadOS: More Powerful Than Ever Before
The event also saw the launch of the next generation of iPad and some exciting news about the interface.
Of course, before now, iPad has run the same operating system as its iPhone counterparts. However, one of the biggest announcements of the day could be a game-changer. The tablet will now have its own system called iPadOS. Watch this space!
Apple Arcade: A Subscription Gaming Platform
Mobile gaming is a massive industry. Usually, premium smartphone apps work on a pay-per-game basis. Apple is set to change that with Apple Arcade.
The service, which will be available via the App Store, will be a subscription service. With that in mind, users will pay a monthly fee and have access to a whole range of Apple-friendly arcade games. Think of it as the Netflix of mobile gaming. It will launch 19th September.
Apple TV Plus: A New Type of Streaming Service
Talking of Netflix… Yes, you might have seen this one coming. Apple is set to take on the entertainment streaming service.
Taking a leaf out of their competitor’s book, Apple TV Plus is set to launch with a wide range of original content including series such as The Morning Show, See and much more. The service launches 1st November 2019.
