Apple’s new, lower priced iPhone draws tepid response in Asia

Bad news for iPhone XS Max smartphone lovers Sale will be closed

The new triple lens camera, found on the upcoming iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, looks unusual because while 2018's camera also stuck out, it didn't have three googly eyes bunched together.

Successors to the XS and XS Max, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max sport a 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch super Retina XDR display, which Apple claims is the brightest display ever in an iPhone. While the phone did bring a bunch of "new" features to the table, there was a lot still missing that other competitors in the Smartphone market were offering.

These have been driving down Apple's share of the Chinese market in recent years.

In terms of battery life, we could not report back on the validity of Apple's estimate of 18 hours of use.

One popular joke suggested that the new phones allowed three different U.S. intelligence agencies access to a camera each.

But the main marketing drive for the new phones was the cameras: a new superwide camera alongside the normal camera that users can switch between. 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. This allows users to film slow motion video.

However, he added, 'the market is still full of challenges, both market competition and macroeconomic factors'.

The iPhone 11 features two back cameras with an ultra wide-angle lens, and is driven by a next-generation microchip, dubbed the A13.

Apple Inc.'s decision to skip support for the latest wireless standard on its new iPhones may cost the company a chance at capturing China's biggest smartphone replacement wave in years.

The iPhone 11 Pro is available in two screen sizes - the 5.8-inch Pro and 6.5-inch Pro Max. Starts at $999 for the 11 Pro, $1099 for the 11 Pro Max, and you can pre-order on Friday and have it available on September 20th.

Apple has unveiled its new range of iPhones for the year.

Analysts expect Apple will sell around 200 million iPhones in the next year, in addition to other devices, and while many of those will be in China, it ensures at least tens of millions of potential viewers for the subscription service. A feature that Apple has been resisting for some years now, but finally gave in to in the face of weakening sales. Apple has also taken a shot at better low-light photography with a new Night mode.

But amid China's economic slowdown, Apple's sales in China, Taiwan and Hong Kong fell 19% in the third quarter from a year earlier. Apple also reduced the price of Apple Watch Series 3 to a starting price of USD199.

OnePlus took the opportunity to troll the Cupertino based company and their newest flagships by pointing out to one key feature that the iPhone 11 series misses on-The 90Hz refresh rate on the screen of the OnePlus 7 Pro.

Picodi's study compares the average wage in selected countries with the announced price of an iPhone 11 Pro (64GB) in those countries, in order to count the number of working days required to buy the phone.

The new phones will be available to order on Friday and start shipping September 20.
