Has An Aussie Launch Price Lower Than *Cough* Other Streaming Platforms

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

The more expensive iPhone 11 Pro, which has three cameras on its back, will retail starting at $999 (£808) while the iPhone 11 Pro Max, which features a larger screen, will sell from $1,099 (£889).

The cheapest version of the new iPhone 11 model starts at $1199 - below the retail price of its predecessor, the iPhone X, which at full price sells for nearly $1500. The iPhone 11 Pro will come with an upgraded OLED display that Apple - reaching for every growing superlatives - is calling the "super retina XDR". That is exactly what has happened as Apple has officially revealed price cuts for the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and XS Max in India.

Just so you know, according to the Indian Express, the Apple iPhone 11 will cost Rs. 64,900, the iPhone 11 Pro starts at Rs. 99,900 (yeah, starts at!) and the iPhone 11 Pro Max starts at Rs. 1,09,900. iPhone rumors and leaks were everywhere in the days leading up to the event, and the idea that one potential update would include three rear-facing cameras had consumers memeing it up with fake mockups on Twitter.

'Featuring the fastest, most powerful chip ever in a smartphone, plus an all-new dual-camera system and even longer all-day battery life'.

On social media, a meme trended featuring Apple CEO Tim Cook bragging about the new features, to which Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's consumer business group, responds by pointing out that Huawei has had those same features for years. If all that turns out to be true, Apple may continue to justify its premium market price.

The new range of iPhones begins from Rs 64,900, which analysts said has also been priced much better in the Indian context, which can lead to prices of older models being reduced. The pricing also makes AppleTV+ the cheapest monthly plan for Apple anywhere in the world. It's a step up from the current iPad, but well below the iPad Pro in performance and price: it starts at $329 and will be available at the end of September.

The App Store will soon feature an Apple Arcade where you can download and play new games - which Apple was keen to stress will be "exclusive" to it.

Once a portrait is captured, you'll also be able to adjust it with Portrait Lighting, which allows you to fine-tune light intensity. Interestingly, Apple has put both its games and TV subscriptions at the sub-market price of $4.99 a month.

Apple has also sweetened its deal by offering buyers of an iPhone, iPad or Mac a free year of streaming TV service, opening the service potentially to hundreds of millions of viewers in more than 100 countries.

"All of these incredible shows for the price of a single movie rental", Cook said at a press event held on Tuesday at a theater at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino.
