Did you hear the latest buzz about the Apple special event?
The world finally has witnessed the much-awaited event of the Cupertino based tech giant. Apple hosted its grand media event in Cupertino, Calif last night. It uncloaked its new range of iPhones, a new watch, and much more. The reason why the world was so eagerly waiting for this event is because of the rising curiosity about the declining iPhone sales, especially for the last three quarters. Hence all eyes were on Tim Cook, as everyone wanted to know how he will get everything back on track.
Now don’t you worry a bit, we will cover each and every update about the Apple iPhone event. So shall we begin?
The Kick Start- News About Apple Arcade
So the news is that the tech giant wants to sell you video games. Apple started the event by unveiling the news about its gaming subscription- Arcade. It will launch on September 19 and the cost will be around $4.99 per month. To my surprise, it will allow access to a couple of indie games. And that is not all, it will also provide classic titles from companies like Annapurna, Capcam, etc.
Obviously Arcade will be a premium choice. But most of the other gaming options are free of cost, as they depend on the in-game transaction to gain a better income.
Well, if I think about the main motive behind this, it is actually impressive. Since the iPhone sales are currently being compromised, the company is majorly leaning onto the services in finance, entertainment, and publishing industries.
Who Better Than Jason Momoa To Introduce Apple TV+
Everyone was spell-bounded when they saw Jason Momoa navigating the blind world of ‘See’ in Apple TV+. Tim Cook was the one who unveiled the trailer and said that it will be available in over 100 countries.
Now the first show will be available on November 1st, 2019. And eventually, many more will be added to the queue, each month. And its basic cost will be $ 4.99 per month. It is actually cheaper than its potential competitors, such as Hulu, Netflix or Disney+.
The Introduction Of 7th Generation iPad
When it comes to flaunting the assets, there is no one better than Apple! The company showed off its seventh-generation iPad with a 10.2-inch Retina display (of course, it is one of the biggest displays). The tech-giant made sure that everyone knows about its out of the box features and capabilities. Apple says that the seventh generation iPad is-
- Fully supports a smart connector, especially for the keyboards
- Fascinating, because of the latest multitasking features
- Completely made of 100% recycled aluminium
I know what you are thinking. Well, it starts at $329. And of course, it is available for a pre-order. But it will be shipped by the end of this month.
Apple Watch- A Step Towards Betterment Of The Mankind
When it came to the Apple Watch portion of the event, the company started it off with a promotional video. This promotional video consisted of user testimonials about the impact this watch has on them. In the video, people shared their personal experiences, for example from helping a pregnant lady who is in need of an emergency c-section, to alerting about the early sides of a heart attack.
The video was soothing and emotional.
The tech-giant also laid special focus on how the Apple Watch is currently being used in health research. The ongoing health research also includes heart, hearing and fertility studies. Soon a new application known as ‘studies’ will be available to the Apple Watch users. The company’s plan is to launch it later this year.
After the updates about the Watch’s health impacts, the topic shifted to the updates that hardware is getting.
Apple Watch Series 5
It will have a new Retina display that never shuts. This indirectly means that the watch face is visible 24*7. Do you want to know the battery life? Well, it can work for 18 hours straight.
It comes with an emergency SOS features, for the cellular version. This means that you can have access to contact the emergency services, without needing your iPhone, by just pressing and holding down the watch’s side button. It will work well within 150 countries.
This is actually a good step towards providing a user with, a great deal of assurance towards the security. Especially, while travelling overseas.
The special GPS version starts at $399, and on the other hand, the cellular model costs $499. It will ultimately hit the stores on September 20.
iPhone 11- The Star Of The Event
After that came the most awaited moment of the event- Apple’s iPhone presentation.
The first look of the iPhone 11 reminded me of the last year’s line on the surface. Well, its almost similar, but at least it is available in different colors- green, purple and yellow. I know its a little boring, but first, let us get started with all the features it has to offer.
- 6.1-inch Retina displays
- Spatial audio
- New cameras on the back of the phone
- A wide camera for quick auto-focus
- An ultra-wide camera for improved range
- Updated selfie camera
The cost is around $699.
Wait! That is not all…
The company said that its iPhone 11 will come with a Night Mode on the cameras. This means it will be able to see in the dark. It will allow you to shoot in the dark, but the outcome will be well-lit.
But sadly, Apple came in a little late. Last year, Google included a feature known as Night Sight to the Pixels phones.
It is pretty much the same!
Say Hello To The Extended Family- iPhone 11 Pro & 11 Pro Max
If you have been keeping a constant check on the Techugo Blogs, you must have already heard the surfacing rumor. During the Apple iPhone Event, the company flaunted 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. Want to know their specialty? Well, they are all about the camera.
According to Tim Cook, these are the most powerful and most advanced iPhones that they have built. In addition to the mind-blowing design. iPhone 11 Pro is leaving everyone behind in the race to become the most efficient and fastest. 11 Pro can last 4 hours longer than XS, and 11 Pro Max can last 5 hours longer than the XS Max.
And of course, the ritual continued. Like every year the tech-giant announced a new bionic chip for this year’s line of iPhones. And it is known as A13.
Are The Latest Editions To The iPhone Family The Strongest?
According to the company, the latest iPhones, with the new bionic chip- A13, are extremely powerful than all the other phones from Google, Samsung, and Huawei. A detailed explanation was given by the company, with the help of bar charts. They claimed that, when it comes to computing power, the iPhone XR has already beaten the Huawei’s P30, Google Pixel 3, and last but not the least, Samsung’s Galaxy S10+.
It surely is hard to make declarations, without any data. But let us wait for the final end-user judgment!
