iPhone 11: The Important Stuff

Apple just took the wraps off of three new phones, a new apple watch, a new iPad, and made some big move against Netflix. Here’s a quick recap of everything Apple announced at their event today…


Of course, the big news is with the new iPhones. There are three new models this year: The iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. What you need to know is that most people will love the iPhone 11. Think of it as a new, updated version of the iPhone XR that’s cheaper and better in every way. It’s got two cameras, a wide and ultra-wide-angle camera, the new faster and more powerful A13 Bionic processor, it can shoot 4K video, take night shots in a new night mode, faster Face ID, better battery life, and comes in 6 colors:Purple white yellow green black product red 

The only downside is that it has the same 6.1-inch Liquid Retina LCD instead of the OLED panel found on the pro, but trust me, you probably won’t care.


If you do care about OLED, then check out the iPhone Pro. It comes in two models with a new and improved OLED display that Apple calls its Super Retina XDR Display. It has 3 cameras on the back instead of two, with wide, ultra-wide, and telephoto lenses. It also has the A13 Bionic chip, faster Face ID, comes in a new midnight green color, a frosted matte finish on the back, and has significantly better battery life than the XS and XS Max, with 4 or 5 hours more than the respective models they replace.

The iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro on Max will go on sale at a new time, 5AM Pacific, this Friday the 13th.

Besides phones, Apple also introduced a new Series 5 Apple Watch that sports an always-on display, a built-in compass….and that’s about it. You can pre-order that right now if you’re looking for a new Apple Watch. Apple also announced a new entry-level iPad. It’s got an improved display  that’s a bit bigger at 10.2 inches, a smart connector for use with other Apple accessories, and the same $329 entry level price tag.

Last but not least, we finally got more details on Apple’s services - Apple’s game subscription platform is launching at the end of the month for $5 a month and Apple’s highly anticipated streaming service Apple TV+ will launch in November for the same $5 per month plan, but if you buy a new iPad, iPhone, or Mac, you get a year for free, that’s a sweet deal, you can thank Disney Plus for putting heat on apple for that one
