Apple fans have long since related September to the release of the brand new iPhones and 2019 is no exception.
The middle of night release on September 11 for Australia saw a swag or new tech from the Apple team with more than just a new iPhone on the horizon.
Outside of the iPhone we saw the announcement of a new entry level iPad, Apple Watch and also finally release information of the Apple TV+ service.
Apple iPhone 11
The three new models iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max share similarities with the existing range with some subtle differences.
These new phones feature upgraded camera technology with the top two models featuring a triple rear camera setup.
The faster chip also makes the new iPhone the words fastest smart phone.
Additional upgrades have been made to durability with improved strength and water resistance.
Minor battery life improvement is also and the cards and last but not least, some new colour options.
The iPhone 8 and XR will see a price drop for those who don’t need the latest and greatest.
iPad 7th generation
Featuring a 10.2” screen the new 7th Generation iPad will be replacing the entry level 9.7” full size iPad currently on market.
The guts of this device aren’t all that different to its predecessor however there are some nice features.
The 10.2 now has native support for Apple keyboard and still allows pencil use.
The slightly larger screen shouldn’t come at much of a price premium on the previous model.
The new series 5 offers some minor upgrades to the Apple Watch user.
Coupled with watchOS 6 users will have access to a host of health and fitness functions.
The new hardware also includes location features such as compass and elevation, as well as emergency calling without having access to iPhone nearby.
A small improvement on an already popular smart watch.
Announced some time ago, this event finally launched Apple’s streaming service.
This is designed to compete with the likes of Netflix and is going to come in at the $7.99 mark for Aussies.
This is a competitive market and new players have had success disrupting the incumbents – some good value to be had at this price.
With iPhone being the highlight of the event there are still lots of small improvements to get around.
Leading into a busy buying time the market will confirm whether Apple his hit the mark.
