A new, all-you-can-play gaming service will launch on September 19 in 150 countries. The service featuring over 100 games will cost $4.99 a month.
The new streaming platform will finally launch on November 1st, at the lowest price on the market – $4.99 a month. With a lineup of new shows starring the likes of Jason Mamoa, Steve Carrell, and Jennifer Anniston, AppleTV+ is looking like a must-have.
The base model iPad is gaining a bit of screen real-estate in this newest model. It also adds improved Apple Pencil support and a smart connector on its edge for a full-size keyboard accessory. Prices remain the same, starting at $329.
Apple Watch Series 5
New features for the Watch include an always-on display, so no more annoying raising your wrist to turn the screen on. The battery is also improving, with an 18-hour charge. The Series 5 will start at $399, and several new luxury models made from titanium and ceramic will be launching as well.
The new base model of the iPhone will be replacing the XR series, this time with improved dual cameras, stronger back glass, and Apple’s new A13 processor, which promises the fastest performance of any smartphone on the market. It will come in black, green, yellow, purple, red, and white, and will start at $699. Preorders can be made starting on September 13 and will begin shipping on September 20.
iPhone 11 Pro/Pro Max
The top-of-the-line iPhone models will now be sold under the “Pro” moniker. These will come with a three-camera system promising the highest quality images. Some exciting camera features include a ‘Night Mode’ for shots taken in low-light conditions as well as ‘Deep Fusion’, an AI-powered feature that will take nine shots at once and utilize the best aspects of each one. The displays will remain the same as the XS series, at 5.8” and 6.5”. The battery life has also dramatically improved, promising an additional four hours and five hours for the respective models. They will ship with 18w fast chargers in the box and will start at $999 and $1099. Preorders can be made starting September 13 and will begin shipping on September 20.
