New iPhones woo users to Apple television and games

11 September 2019

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 new streaming service can be accessed through an Apple TV+ app on iOS devices and most smart TVs from major manufacturers. But perhaps the most significant change in iOS 13 is the introduction of iPadOS, a new, tablet-specific version of the operating system that offers improved multitasking capabilities and other features for power users-all meant to make the iPad more viable as a laptop replacement.

Pre-orders for the phone will kick off at 8pm on September 13, with the phone available a week later on September 20. But in terms of screens, the iPhone 11 will have a 6.1-inch LCD screen while the more expensive Pro and Pro Max models will come with 5.8-inch and 6.5 inch OLED screens respectively. And they will likely have the same design - with more display space, less bezel and no home button - that Apple switched to with the iPhone X in 2017.

The company also revealed fresh details concerning a number of its core products, including an updated Apple Watch and an improved iPad. Or "slofies", as Apple is dubbing them.

Analysts expect Apple to sell about 200 million iPhones in the next year (in addition to other devices), ensuring tens of millions of potential viewers for the subscription service. The good news, however, is that not only does Apple make it look not almost as bad as the mockups, but it also makes it worth it. The device will retail for $329 and start shipping on 30 September.

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.

Apple also lowered the XR price to $599 and is keeping the iPhone 8 at $499. Meanwhile, Apple TV+ will launch in more than 100 countries on 1 November at $4.99 a month.

Apple chief executive Tim Cook promised more content would be added as it is produced. Apple will then notify you the moment the service becomes available.

The company will show off its latest iPhones Tuesday at a products showcase in Cupertino, California.

Lastly, Apple announced two new subscription services: games and TV.

"The key takeaway from the Apple Special event is of the steady and assured transition Apple is making to ramp up its services pie, with the Apple TV+ and the Apple Arcade, both offering significant value proposition to the Apple consumers".
