New iPhone met with myriad memes over weird, three-eyed design

Apple to spark upgrade rush with new iPhones tight pricing

We've had a look at the key takeaways from the launch. But first, here's what the internet had to say about the new triple-camera design (cue the memes). According to Drance, the iPhone 11 comes in 6 colours and adds more festures for photo-lovers. The main difference is the cameras.

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. The entry-level Apple 11 underlines Apple acknowledging the consumer push-back towards high prices of recent iPhones. We've seen the three trailers Apple has shown and we got to see the Jason Momoa series called See that's also coming.

And the Pro Max at $AU1,601. It remains to be seen whether this combination of features will be enough to reinvigorate the iPhone's sluggish worldwide sales. It launches November 1st for another $4.99 as a family plan, and if you buy most of the new Apple Products, you get it free for a year, which is great since we don't know how good these unique series are going to be to pay for them.

Apple TV+ will arrive about two weeks before a new Disney+ streaming television service, which costs USD2 more per month.

They believe this move aims to recapture lost ground in China, where Apples market share has been slipping in recent quarters as people flock to Huawei phones (partly to support the home-grown brand in the midst of the U.S. trade war, but also because of pricing considerations).

The snappiest wall charger on sale today is naturally the costliest too, but believe it or not, a 40 percent markdown equating to a cool $19 off makes this bad boy now cheaper than Apple's first-party 18W USB-C power adapter.

Those offerings are dwarfed by the extensive catalogue of industry leader Netflix, which has a reported $10 billion budget for content and 151 million paid subscribers.


The annual event in the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, Calif., is typically Apple's splashiest and dedicated to its flagship devices, but the company had been expected to be in a "holding pattern" until it introduces its first 5G-compatible iPhone next year, which will be able to take advantage of faster mobile data networks. That around half the 63 million units it sold in 2015.

Apple will open its Arcade game service on September 19, also charging USD4.99 monthly.

iPhone 11 will be available through Apple Authorised Resellers starting September 27.

Analyst at PP Foresight Paolo Pescatore said the roll-out of these new subscription-based services by Apple could pave the way for the introduction of bundles "akin to the all-you-can-eat bundles like Amazon Prime".

Why would Apple hold off on raising the price for the iPhone 11 Pro phones, as it has done consistently for years?

All the three smartphones come with Apple's latest A13 Bionic processor, which Apple claims is the fastest processor on any smartphone.
