5 things to know about the new iPhone 11 Yesterday Apple unveiled the successors to the iPhone XR and more

Tuesday, September 10. In Cupertino, California, the Apple event where the company presented its new products took place. Tim Cook and his team unveiled the new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, but also a new edition of its Apple Watch, a new iPad and provided some more information about his new subscription Arcade service and Apple TV+. Here's everything you need to know. 


These are the most colorful smartphones ever made by Apple

The new iPhones improve processor, battery life, audio, and camera, but remain the same in design as their predecessors. They have a new generation OLED display (the Apple Super Retina XDR), a stainless steel body and a satin glass back. The real innovation is an unprecedented color chart. The options for the basic model are white, black, red, purple, yellow and green, while for the Pro version are night green, sidereal grey, silver, and gold. 


Goodbye selfie, here come the slofie

Selfie becomes slow motion and is called "slofie". The iPhone 11 comes with the fastest Gpu and a dual camera with a wide-angle lens to make "the best videos of all those that can be done with smartphones. The new product gains a second wide-angle camera from 12 MP to 120°, which allows you to get ultra wide images and introduces a new night mode that ensures professional shots even in low light conditions. The real possible revolution concerns the front camera to which is added the ability to record video in 4K and slow motion, a device that allows selfie in slow motion mode and gives us (perhaps) a new social phenomenon.


Cameras are multiplying

If the model doubles the camera, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max (with 5.8" and 6.5" screens, respectively) triple it with a new three lens compartment: telephoto, wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle. This change allows you to take photos with three different focal lengths. The magic is Deep Fusion, a machine learning-based device that can translate the three simultaneous shots of the lenses in a single image, without losing definition. For the front camera, Apple improves quality (from 7MP to 12MP) and switches to a lens that can record video at 120 frames per second. The wider opening also allows you to shoot selfies with more people and unlock the iPhone with your face without having to stand in front of the camera. The future introduction of the new iOS 13 operating system will give the iPhone 11 a wide range of creative controls and advanced photo and video features. 



The iPhone 11 will be on sale in Italy from September 20 starting from 839 euros (cheaper than the launch price of the iPhone Xr). While those who want all the latest technological innovations designed by Apple and opt for the new iPhone 11 Pro will have to pay 1,189 euros for the basic model and the iPhone 11 Pro Max, with a slightly larger screen, the price starts from 1,289 euros.


In addition to the iPhone there is more

Among the novelties of this keynote, Apple presented a 100% recycled aluminum iPad 2019 with 10.2-inch Retina display, Pencil support, and A10 Fusion processor. Also interesting is the new generation of Apple Watch. The product has a Retina Always-on display, 18-hour battery life and boasts new tools, such as the Compass or the ability to make emergency calls in more than 150 countries. Made of aluminum, titanium and ceramic, it will also have special models in collaboration with Nike and Hermès. In addition, the company from Cupertino has unveiled Apple Arcade, a gaming platform that will be available from September 19 at a monthly cost of 4.99 euros, with the first month free.

Perhaps the most awaited novelty is Apple Tv+, the anti-Netflix will debut on November 1. The monthly cost to access the platform is 4.99 euros for the whole family, anyone who buys an Apple device in the coming months will have a year of free streaming. On Tuesday Tim Cook showed a world preview of the first trailer of See, a TV series starring Jason Momoa that will be available exclusively on the new platform.
