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.

But what about the more expensive iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max?

Apple's new iPhones, announced yesterday evening at the Steve Jobs theatre, Cupertino had the audience at the edge of their seat. Both models look similar to their predecessors, except for the fact that they are now featuring three cameras on the back, in a square arrangement, opposed to the two units on last year's models. The Pro will also come in a Pro Max larger size. Costs start at $999 and $1,099 respectively. It's not even dollar-pound parity.

While the top models iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max will start at ₹99,900 and ₹1,09,900, the low cost variant called iPhone 11, targeted at the wider demographic of cost conscious users, will start at ₹64,900.

The Apple Watch also received a refresh, with expanded health-tracking capabilities to include sleep-tracking features as well as better battery life.

Apple says that the flash is 36% brighter, while it has a new night mode that taps adaptive bracketing for improved low-light shots.


Cupertino claims it can handle one trillion operations per second and is the fastest CPU and GPU in any smartphone on the market. Apple has already ordered 2 whole seasons of the show, for a reported price tag of $300 million total.

An iPhone 11 boasted upgrades including a dual-camera system, longer battery life, a muscular computer chip and better water resistance.

One popular joke suggested that the new phones allowed three different USA intelligence agencies access to a camera each.

iPhone 11's killer cameraThe iPhone 11 cameras are awesome. However, unlike its competitors, Apple doesn't give a separate toggle for it. Oh, ok, how about five?

Big moves for Tim Cook and Co.

The newest iPhone is finally here and it's more colorful than ever. Apple clearly thinks so. It supports Dolby Atmos sound and packs the speedy new A13 Bionic processor. The slightly-bigger iPad also features a full-sized Smart Keyboard.The 2019 iPad will be available for purchase across stores in India from September 30.


With the iPad, Apple is certain that it can replace people's laptops - and keeps telling them so. The differences coming to iOS 13 and Android 10 have divvied these phones up even more than they seem after pitting their specs against each other. And the flagship game was an updated version of Frogger - every gran's favourite computer game.

The camera is where Apple has upped the game, literally and figuratively.

And then there is Apple's much-vaunted move into TV production.

Cook said that there is strong demand for the shows on its platform, with trailers for its new series "For All Mankind", "The Morning Show" and "Dickinson" garnering more than 100 million views. For some reason, according to the internal logic of the show, regaining a basic sense that was previous lost is something to be feared.
