The addition of a new nighttime shooting mode is also a welcome (and, frankly, overdue) upgrade, especially on the lower-priced iPhone. The maker stated in the phone's unveiling that the iPhone 11 Pro has four more hours battery life than the iPhone XS, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max lasts five hours more than the iPhone XS Max. Here are our initial impressions: The first thing you'll notice about the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max is the new Midnight Green colour.

Apple unveiled its iPhone 11 models Tuesday, touting upgraded, ultra-wide cameras as it updated its popular smartphone line-up and cut its entry price to USD699.

Apple today stunned tech-heads with a panoply of pricey new iPhone models, but the company also surprised audiences with a much smaller dollar figure: $7.99.

Apple CEO Tim Cook led the Apple Special Event Tuesday afternoon from Apple HQ in Cupertino, CA. The camera bump isn't that awkward and we did try to see if the phone wobbles or not and found that it doesn't. The design isn't that will perhaps be universally adored but it certainly grows on you.

"The roll out of new subscription-based services by Apple paves the way for the introduction of new business models akin to the all-you-can-eat bundles like Amazon Prime", said Paolo Pescatore, analyst with PP Foresight.

Apple has also kept the sale OLED display and screen sizes.

The screen of the iPhone 11 is the same 6.1-inch 828x1792px LCD of the iPhone XR.

The camera is where Apple has upped the game, literally and figuratively. The camera setup looks different and does a lot of different things.

The rear camera array consists of three cameras, which each have 12MP sensors.

But the British premium has actually gone down, not up, over the past two years: in 2017, iPhones cost $100 more in the United Kingdom than the U.S. pre-tax. However, the images we did click - in excellent lighting conditions of course - were really good.

Despite the reduction, the iPhone 11, and even the higher-end models with more camera lenses, are set to come up short in Asia. Front-facing camera wise the new iPhone 11 has a 12MP snapper (up from the 7MP snapper in previous-gen iPhones) which is capable of a insane 4K 60FPS and slow-motion video.

Within moments of the announcement, Apple's competitors took a major blow.

The more expensive iPhone 11 Pro will have three cameras on the back and starts at $999. The image samples Apple showed tremendous difference from the previous-generation iPhones.

All new iPhone 11s come with a new system-on-chip processor - the A13 Bionic - which was the technological star of the show. "In the future we might even see users pay for a service bundle and receive a new iPhone every year".

The fact that Apple again changed its naming scheme with the iPhone 11 should be enough to tell you about just how important the phone is.

Well, Apple has also announced price cuts for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in India, which will now retail starting at $449 in the US iPhone 8 nowstarts at Rs 39,900 whereas iPhone 8 Plus starts at Rs. 49,900 in the country.

Then we have Apple TV+ which finally has a date.
