APPLE fans are in for a treat today as loads of fruity gadgets are being announced at theApple September event, including the NEW iPhone.
The Sun’s tech editor Sean Keach is reporting LIVE from Cupertino to bring you the latest news out of Apple HQ.
Every year Apple hosts a major event out at its Cupertino, California HQ – and 2019 is no different.
Apple has cooked up a dazzling range of new goodies that’ll be high on Christmas lists.
Here’s the latest live news and updates from California…
In summary, Apple made the following announcements…
- A brand new iPhone 11 with two cameras, starting at £ 699 / $ 699
- The iPhone 11 Pro with three cameras and two versions, starting from £ 999 / $ 999
- The Apple Watch Series 5 with new ceramic and titanium cases, starting at £ 399 / $ 399
- A new iPad – the cheapest available at £ 329 / $ 329
- Apple Arcade, the game-streaming subscription, coming on September 19 for $ 4. 99 a month
- Apple TV launching on November 1 in more than 100 countries for $ 4. 99 a month
So what was missed? There was no huge 16 – inch MacBook Pro unveiled, for a start.
And Apple didn’t announce reverse wireless charging for the iPhone either.
Rumors of a new pair of Apple AirPods were also false, and we didn’t hear anything about a wider Apple Card launch.
Overall, there’s plenty for Apple fans to get excited about – and the latest iPhone models are guaranteed to be a hit. The fact that there’s no price increase this year is also something to smile about.
I’m wrapping this blog up now – thanks for following all of the news, and check back on The Sun for more on Apple’s new gear.
Apple chief Tim Cook is wrapping up now.
Tech media are about to be unleashed on the products here at the Steve Jobs Theater, but the news is coming to a close.
We’ll be bringing you our first impressions of Apple’s products shortly, so check back on The Sun for the latest on all things Apple.
We’ve now moved on to Apple Retail.
There’s a new Apple Watch Studio Experience where you can pair any watch case and band.
There are more than 1, 000 combinations, Apple’s retail chief says.
Apple also announced a trade-in scheme for the new iPhone, which lets you get a discount on new models by handing over your old blower.
And Apple’s 5th Avenue store in New York is being relaunched.
It’s dramatically increased in height, nearly doubled in size and is now the largest in the world.
The iPhone 11 Pro starts at $ 999 / £ 999.
And the iPhone 11 Pro Max is slightly more expensive at $ 1.0 99 / £ 1.0 99.
This is great news because it’s not a price increase on last year models. And with the iPhone 11 being even cheaper than the iPhone XR, this is a great year for our wallets.
Pre-orders begin on Friday at 5pm PT – that’s 1pm UK time.
And the devices start shipping on September 20, so that’s when you’ll want to join the lengthy queue outside your local Apple Store.
Apple’s Phil Schiller showed off a detailed slide highlighting some of the key iPhone 11 Pro upgrades.
This handset is reminiscent of the iPad Pro or MacBook Pro.
That means most buyers will probably opt for the iPhone 11.
But cash-flush gadget fans will be desperate to snap up the powerful, feature-packed iPhone 11 Pro.
It’s the dream gadget for Apple fans, no doubt about it…
