Finally, one of the most important events of the year for Apple is finished. The company puts its new iPhone on the table in addition to other surprises. In this case, the news beyond the phones has been a new Apple Watch, a new iPad and the update of the streaming services and prices. The event itself very close to the rumors. This time, “Apple Tag” is disappeared.
Within short time, Tim Cook and his team surprised everyone with a new generation of phones that proves innovation is also interior design. The new A13 Bionic chip is so powerful and energy efficient than it could perfectly be already on some Mac. But let’s go in parts, serve this analysis as a small review at a high level of everything presented.
Apple Streaming War
Apple Arcade will be available on September 30 for $4.99 per month with more than 100 new games available. Pretty sure, free trial is available for new users. In the keynote, one can see the gameplays of Konami and Capcom companies.
The arrival of the PS4 and Xbox control support will undoubtedly enhance this new platform that moves away from the Arcade streaming proposal and allows off-line downloading to play anywhere.
However, the news came with Apple TV +: It is launched on November 1 in more than 100 countries at the incredible price of $4.. It makes the company a new and very much competitor against Netflix and Disney.
In the keynote, Cook commented on first three trailers that have been presented starring the once king of the seas Jason Momoa and that looks spectacular.
Tim Cook spoke of the “basic” iPad as one of the best-selling and popular devices in the iPad range. The new iPad has a 10.2-inch screen and is compatible with the Apple Pencil 2 , has A10 Fusion chip and the design reduces the side edges. It starts selling from $329 and also has a Smart Keyboard with which you can use keyboards and accessories that use this connector.
No doubt, the focus of the device is people who don’t look for a Pro but want a modern and efficient machine . The support of the Pencil 2 and the Smart Keyboard, as well as it’s iPad Pro “old fashion” design place it in an unbeatable sales position.
Apple Watch Series 5
Apple introduced new Apple Watch Series 5, with a new model identical to the previous one. This is a new watch that allows the screen to always be on and slightly increases the battery life with respect to Series 4. In the test area, one can see this new display that remains on and attenuates by reducing the refreshment of the screen to be more energy efficient.
The new model also includes an integrated compass. It will improve the accuracy of apps that use GPS-controlled apps and positioning. It also allows international emergency calls and has new materials such as titanium variant. They will arrive at the stores on September 20.
Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS) starts at $399 (US) and Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS + Cellular) starts at $499.
iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro
Finally, the rumors came to reality. The physical aspect of the new iPhone 11 has finally seen in live. I can say that the hollow of the cameras is much better solved the renders. Along with iPhone 11, Apple has also unveiled iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max: as the name suggests, these are improved versions of the basic model, dedicated to more professional use of the smartphone. Compared to the starting model, they stand out above all for the triple camera and the new Super Retina XDR display.
This triple camera system of the PRO even allows each camera to record independently. And then by software choose which one we want to use at any time. That this occurs in the same device indicates a power and ability to process images at another level.
- Main camera: 12 megapixels, 26 mm focal length, aperture with f / 1.8 aperture, a six-element lens with optical image stabilization

- Ultra-wide angle: 12 megapixels, 13 mm focal length, aperture at f / 2.4 aperture, five-element lens, with optical image stabilization, 120 ° angle of view (with framing up to 4 times wider)
Obviously, just like on iPhone 11, the front camera is also enhanced: the new TrueDepth camera is 12 megapixels, has a wider field of view, records video in 4K at 60 FPS and supports Slow Motion mode. About front camera, on iPhone 11 Pro also improves the Face ID, which is 30% faster.
As well as iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max also use the Apple A13 Bionic chip: Apple has declared that the CPU and GPU of this SoC are the fastest on the smartphone market, with a computing power 20% higher than on A12 Bionic. Furthermore, A13 stands out for its great potential in artificial intelligence: thanks to Machine Learning Accelerators, iPhone 11 Pro is able to perform more than one billion (one trillion) operations per second.
Pretty sure, it is IP68. It allows you to submerge it up to 4 meters of water for 30 minutes and Apple has placed special emphasis on the resistance of this new model.
