Apple Unveils New iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max Models - But Not Everyone's Convinced

Apple Unveils New iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max Models - But Not Everyone's Convinced

Apple has unveiled its brand new iPhone 11 models, having revealed all at today's annual event held at the company's headquarters in Cupertino, California.

At the event - streamed live on YouTube for the first time - Apple presented the latest additions to the iPhone family: the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

The iPhone 11 has two cameras on the back of each device, while the Pro and Pro Max have three: a wide camera, an ultra-wide camera and a telephoto camera.

The phones also boast night mode and a slo-mo setting for the front-facing camera, so that you can take slo-mo selfies... Or 'slofies', as Apple is dubbing them.

Oh, and you can take better portraits of your pets:

Along with improved cameras, a longer battery life and faster face recognition, the new releases also bring with them Apple's new A13 chip, the 'fastest GPU ever in a smartphone'.

But while applause was ringing around the Steve Jobs Theater in California, not everyone's convinced just yet.

One person on Twitter joked: "New iPhone was revealed 10 minutes ago and my iPhone is already slower."

Someone else wrote: "Apple just threw anything together for the iPhone 11 smh."

A third said: "I'm sticking to my iPhone XS Max that new iPhone so f***ing ugly."

Another added: "Holy s*** the new iPhone is ugly."

While someone else said: "3 (THREE) f***ing cameras on the new iPhone?? Why would I want 3 different ways to see I'm ugly when 1 does the job?? Not my iPhone."

The iPhone 11 is yours for $699 (£566), while the Pro and Pro Max will set you back $999 (£808) and $1,099 (£890) respectively.

The new phones will also be with us in just over a week, as they all go on sale on Friday 20 September.

Apple CEO Tim Cook opened proceedings by promising some 'truly big announcements' - first of which was the launch of Apple Arcade, a new gaming service that will be available on mobile, desktop and TV in over 150 countries for $4.99 (£4.04) a month from 19 September.

Cook then guided us through the news for Apple TV+, the company's new subscription video on demand web television service that will bring Apple users 'exclusive originals' such as new Jason Momoa sci-fi series See.

Cook said: "Our mission for Apple TV Plus is to bring you the best original stories from the most creative minds in television and film."

Available in over 100 countries for $4.99 per month, that one will be launching on 1 November, with originals being added to the service each month.

There was also new 7th-generation iPad announced, along with iPadOS, a mobile operating system for Apple's iPads and tablet computers.

Stan Ng, Vice President of Product Marketing for Apple Watch, then came on stage to introduce the 'next generation' of Apple Watch, the Series 5 model (from $199/£161) - which among many things will boast an 'always-on display'.

"The new always-on Retina Display never sleeps," he said, also promising the same all-day, 18-hour battery life would remain unaffected.

Oh, and the Apple Watch Series 5 will also have an in-built compass. So that's cool.
