New iPhones woo users to Apple television and games

Apple’s TV, iPhone and Arcade Announcements Do Little to Move the Needle on Wall Street Singaporean iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max pricing

Earlier in the week some observers had predicted Apple could get a significant bump in sales this year from its slate of new iPhones, given that numerous company's roughly 900 million existing iPhone users are primed for an upgrade, with phones that are, on average, five years old. But this time around, the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Max offer a bigger step up from the last generation.

In terms of raw power, the trio of iPhones will feature Apple's cutting edge A13 Bionic processor and GPU, which pretty much ensures that it will lead the pack.

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

When it came to features, one of the main draws of the new launch for USA buyers - a $5 per month Netflix-like streaming service - will not be available in China.

The annual event in the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, Calif., is typically Apple's splashiest and dedicated to its flagship devices, but the company had been expected to be in a "holding pattern" until it introduces its first 5G-compatible iPhone next year, which will be able to take advantage of faster mobile data networks.

Apple TV+ will arrive about two weeks before a new Disney+ streaming television service.

The Silicon Valley titan also announced a new 10.2-inch iPad with retina display and a beefed-up A10 Fusion chip.

Apple unveiled its iPhone 11 models Tuesday, touting upgraded, ultra-wide cameras as it updated its popular smartphone line-up and cut its entry price to USD699.

Apple also gave more details on its Apple TV Plus streaming service, announcing its $4.99-per-month price tag and November 1 launch and showing off trailers for upcoming shows, including the Jason Momoa-led "See".

The more expensive iPhone 11 Pro will have three cameras on the back and starts at $999.

New software features include tracking ambient noise levels to safeguard people's hearing; an ability for women to monitor menstrual cycles, and a "compass" to keep users properly oriented.

Apple also revealed the Apple Watch Series 5 at Tuesday's event, which will have an always-on screen while maintaining up to 18 hours of battery life.

Learning its lessons from the success of iPhone XR in India, Apple has done the right thing by launching iPhone 11 at a reasonable price point at a time when the festive season is round the corner, industry analysts said on Wednesday.

Apple chief executive Tim Cook promised more content would be added as it is produced.

To start, the basic iPhone 11 model will now come with a brand new dual-camera setup, which features one 12-megapixel main camera with Optical Image Stablisation (OIS) and another 12-megapixel camera equipped with a wide-angle lens with 120-degree field of view. That positions Apple's streaming effort ahead of Disney's in terms of timing, and with a slightly lower cost.

Arcade will have more than 100 exclusive titles for play on Apple's array of hardware.
