Here are our initial impressions: The first thing you'll notice about the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max is the new Midnight Green colour.

If you missed the announcement of the iPhone 11 Pro, it's worth watching the slick two-minute highlight reel Apple put together before getting stuck into the review.

The iPhone 11 will come in white, yellow, black, red, as well as the new purple and green colours.

If all that turns out to be true, Apple may continue to justify its premium market price.

The new phones will be available to order on Friday and start shipping September 20.

Still, some analysts said that Apple's decision to lower the entry price for the new iPhone, one of the most discussed topics on Weibo on Wednesday, was a positive sign.

Portrait Mode is supported on the new iPhone 11 camera.

The newest iPhone is finally here and it's more colorful than ever.

Apple on Tuesday revealed the company's upcoming fall lineup of updated devices, including a trio of new iPhones, a more versatile iPad, and an updated Apple Watch that attempts to mimic its more analog counterparts by showing you the time, all the time. However, the United Kingdom prices have creeped-up in the last 12 months, with the iPhone 11 Pro now starting from £1,049 (up from £999) and iPhone 11 Pro Max starting from £1,149 (up from £1,099) this time around. The iPhone 11 rocks a 6.1-inch display with the "toughest glass" on an iPhone yet, joined by a new dual-camera system on the back split into a 12MP wide-angle snapper and 12MP ultra-wide.

But the main marketing drive for the new phones was the cameras: a new superwide camera alongside the normal camera that users can switch between.

The iPhone 11 camera bump is sizable, but not as ugly as some early renders suggested.

In a not wholly unexpected turn of events, the Netflix (NFLX) and Roku (ROKU) share prices both dropped 2.16% and 10%, respectively, in response to Apple's aggresive expansion into the fast-crowding streaming market.

This is not because the iPhone 11 Pro is a bad piece of technology, but because it lacks a headline feature that really stands out. The design - apart from the camera set up - remains more or less same which Apple had with the iPhone XS and XS Max. Apple's higher-end Pro and Pro Max handsets have triple-camera rigs, adding a third 12MP snapper - all 3 are 4K 60FPS capable.

The iPhone 11's front-facing camera has also been given some significant upgrades.

'You'll also get 'expert editorial content like game guides and sneak peaks'. Furthermore, Apple has said that the new Iphone's battery will be an improvement on previous editions. Depending how dark your surroundings are, the camera start a one, three, or five-second timer to let you know how long to hold the phone still for during the shot. And with big upgrades over the iPhone XR, it seems pretty clearly positioned to take over as the next most-popular iPhone.

Secondly, the Apple TV+ library doesn't have a lot to offer the mass Indian consumer at the moment.
