Apple put on quite the show by unveiling the new 2019 iPhones and Apple Watch.

Words By: Andre Rodrigues

September is the biggest month in the tech calendar year, because of Apple's much-awaited iPhone launch, which is an every year religious experience. It was in one of these conferences that Steve Jobs unveiled to the world the device that would change the face of smartphones forever. Now we just watch it to see what incremental updates Apple has up it's sleeve, marvel at the design, get completely sold onto their marketing spiel and then stick around after the event for the inevitable flurry of kidney jokes and memes. Which did not disappoint this year too!

IPHONE 11 PRO AND PRO MAX

The new iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max are identical to last year's iPhone, save for the new polarising camera bump. You may have seen it by now, made infamous by all the kitchen stove memes. Yet, I kind of dig it, it's different from whatever's out there and it looks a bit industrial. Beneath that beautiful matte glass exterior is glass housing for the cameras, which hold the same array as the iPhone 11, with the addition of the 12MP Telephoto. To be honest, having that 2X zoom was quite handy in shooting portraits or getting in closer. Out front under the ugly notch, which is said to have faster face ID, is a better 5.8 and 6.5 inch Super Retina XDR display with HDR. Gone is the 3D touch replaced by haptic touch and a larger battery under to give you almost all day battery life. The speakers have also been updated with spatial audio. The cameras are the most stunning of the package, with true to life colours and a really well implemented night mode. The Pro marketing gimmick in the phone seemed to extend mostly to the cameras and the video and photos you can create from it. So all those rumours of Apple Pencil support are all chucked out the window. Just looking at the designs and you know these iPhones are going to cost you. Thankfully, being the lucky ones living in India, we get to pay almost `30,000 more than the dollar exchange rate `99,900 (`70,000 dollar value) for the Pro and `1,09,900 (`78000 Dollar value) for the Pro Max. These are starting at prices, for the laughable 64 GB storage variant. Hope you're ready!

IPHONE 11

Arguably the best reveal at the conference, the iPhone 11 is an update of last year's bestselling iPhone XR. Positioned as the affordable solution, this phone comes in six stunning colours and while out front it still has that ugly notch, the rear has a slightly redesigned camera housing. The biggest update is the camera which sports a 12 MP wide and a 12 MP ultrawide camera. All of the same capabilities that are in the bigger iPhone 11 Pro's are here too, minus the telephoto, but you get the brand new night mode, and a whole host of new algorithms and computational photography that are powered by the new A13 Bionic chip. Apple also showed off some of the most amazing stable camera capabilities seen to date. The best part is that this phone has an all new larger battery, which is something that every iPhone user has been clamouring for. The speaker system gets an update with better spatial audio and Dolby Atmos. Among all the updates, the iPhone 11 gets the best, and with it's decent 6.1 inch Liquid Retina display it's a deal when you consider it retails for just $699 and `64,900 in India for the 64 GB variant and the price goes upwards.Arguably the best reveal at the conference, the iPhone 11 is an update of last year's bestselling iPhone XR.

APPLE WATCH 5

Move along, nothing new to see here! Actually, hold on, there is one thing. It's an always on display, that you can actually see from any angle. Apple claims to have a new low power display. Also the watch comes with a new compass app. Also, if you happen to print money, then you'll be happy to note that it comes in titanium and ceramic variants. So you can show your friends and hope they spot the difference from last year's watch. It helps if you play Sia’s Titanium as a hint from the watches tinny speakers.

APPLE TV PLUS & APPLE ARCADE

With Disney Plus around the corner, Apple revealed it's hand in the streaming war and it's quite apparent that they've thrown this boat in high gear and aimed it right at the Emmy's. Still, there's Jason Momoa playing a blind dad and we're sold. Apple Arcade is packed with good games to take advantage of that new A13 Bionic chip you paid so much for, an all-you-canplay buffet for a low fee every month of `99.
