IPhone 11 arrives with killer cameras and cheap price tag

An Apple TV+ subscription can be shared with up to six family members. 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.

The phone's camera has a new "ultra-wide" angle lens.

All new iPhone 11s come with a new system-on-chip processor - the A13 Bionic - which was the technological star of the show. Tuesday's event revealed more details about those services, including Apple Arcade, a subscription service announced in March 2019 that will provide access to exclusive mobile games.

Apple's lower price point is also trying to win out over HBO Max, set to launch next year.

iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max have a textured matte glass back and polished stainless steel band. The iPhone 11 gives you that plus a new wider option.

iPhone 11 will be available through Apple Authorised Resellers starting September 27.

The fifth-generation Apple Watch has a touch-screen face that is always on so the time and notifications are always viewable, while still being stingy on battery power. The iPhone's venerable camera interface doesn't facilitate quick switching between taking photos and video while on the go: It's easy to accidentally take a video when you meant to take a photo, and vice versa.

In a year when Apple has been hit by slowing revenues, the Trump administration's trade war with China and antitrust investigations in several countries, the Silicon Valley company has increasingly shifted its focus toward more affordable iPhones, along with accessories and services aimed at squeezing more money out of existing iPhone users. All the new iPhones will be available in India starting September 27. As with previous Apple Watch releases, you'll also be able to purchase the sport-oriented Apple Watch Nike version (the difference being a more exercise friendly watch band), the fashion-oriented Apple Watch Hermes version, or the white Apple Watch Edition version. It's a step up from the current iPad, but well below the iPad Pro in performance and price: it starts at $329 and will be available at the end of September.

At launch, Apple TC+ will include eight original shows including The Morning Show, featuring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, and See, a sci-fi drama featuring Jason Momoa.

Those offerings are dwarfed by the extensive catalogue of industry leader Netflix, which has a reported $10 billion budget for content and 151 million paid subscribers. Interestingly, Apple has put both its games and TV subscriptions at the sub-market price of $4.99 a month. That 18-watt charger also happens to be a USB-C charger, which means that the iPhone 11 Pro also ships with a USB-C to Lightning cable for that. It poses a direct challenge to Walt Disney Co., which plans to launch its own streaming service in Canada in November for $8.99 a month.
