The much-awaited Apple Event took place yesterday at the Steve Jobs Theater. A bevy of high-end devices was released that is transcending, if not very out-of-the-box. This launch has given weight to the leaks, as the predictions for each of the new Apple device has been proven right. Be it the trinity of ‘Apple iPhone 11’, the all-new iPad, the life-saving ‘Apple Watch’ (more on this later), or ‘Apple TV Plus’ there is a lot that has been unveiled and most of it is worth appreciating.
The news on Apple TV Plus kick-started the event. Apple’s original streaming service is set to surface on the 1st of November. It will cost $4.99 per month, comparatively $2 less than Disney’s streaming service. The trailer for Jason Momoa’s original series ‘See’ was also released during this segment. Delightfully, this streaming service will be free of cost for everyone buying any of the newly launched Apple products for 1 year.
Bigger iPad, Better iWatch
Apple announced its seventh-generation iPad and Series 5 iWatch after paving way for Apple TV Plus. Moving up from the standard size of 9.7 inches, the new iPad boasts a 10.2-inch screen and comes at an attractive price of $329. The new model is equipped with an A10 Bionic processor and a smart connector, specifically useful for those willing to buy a smart keyboard.
The watch, on the other hand, doesn’t differ in design than the previous year’s model, however, has a few interesting upgrades. It dims the brightness for providing an extended battery life and is the first Apple Watch to have an always-on function. The device was introduced with a video compilation of user reviews, who benefitted from the previous models of iWatch, with special focus on health and safety, calling the device as life-saving. It garnered a lot of applause and is sure to entice people to buy the Series 5 model.
The new model comes for $399 for the GPS version and $499 for the GPS + LTE version. On top of this, Apple will also release two additional models. They will have ceramic and titanium finishes, which will be costlier (and further stunning) as prices were not revealed.
Take Slofies with Stupefying Successor to iPhone XR
The much-awaited iPhone 11 was launched as a successor to the heavily solid iPhone XR. It features a 6.1-inch LCD, a brand new A13 Bionic processor, and GPU. The model is the cheapest in the iPhone 11 category. It comes for $699, which is lesser than the launch price of the iPhone XR and will tempt the budget class to buy it.
The biggest selling point of this device is its dual-camera system. It encompasses first-of-its-kind slow-motion selfie videos. Apple introduced this feature with an amusing video which is likely to be used in large numbers by abundant TikTok users.
Apple also shed light on its gaming subscription service and announced the release date, along with the pricing. Costing $4.99 per month in the United States, gamers will get access to high-quality gaming adventures.
