The iPhone 11, launched on Tuesday for $50 less than last year's base XR model, was met with a limp response from social media users in Asian markets that are dominated by Huawei Technologies and Samsung Electronics. The main difference is the cameras.
Apple on Tuesday played to its strengths with powerful new iPhone and iPad models able to serve as stages for its new game and television services. The iPhone 11 Pro Max with a bigger screen starts at $1,099.
The cameras can also shoot three videos simultaneously.
There's also a new selfie camera. The Pro will also come in a Pro Max larger size.
"We think the lower iPhone 11 price point and trade-in program will help promote upgrades, specifically in China, while the Apple Arcade and TV+ offerings will help accelerate services growth", CFRA analyst Angelo Zino said in a research note.More news: Cristiano Ronaldo Breaks Another European Record
With iPhone sales declining year over year for the past two fiscal quarters, investors are focusing on the growth potential for services.
That's cheaper than Netflix's most-popular $US13-per-month plan. It also made more clear what customers can expect from its upcoming Apple Arcade and Apple TV+ services when they launch with less than a full roster of games and shows to enjoy as soon as September. It's priced at $US6.99 per-month and is set to offer a catalogue of its iconic children's content. For Apple, which is now also building out a services and subscription ecosystem, every unit sold or not sold gains significance because it's the gateway to another subscriber.
Apple TV+ is a brand new streaming service launching in the United Kingdom with original content.
What shows will Apple TV+ have?
At launch, Apple TC+ will include eight original shows including The Morning Show, featuring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, and See, a sci-fi drama featuring Jason Momoa. He added however that adding more content to its library will be key to the success of the service in India.
And finally, the hottest news today is the new iPhone XI Pro, and iPhone Pro Max. It's hard to say whether or not that will make Apple's implementation better or worse without giving it a try, so I'll reserve judgment until I get to see it in action. Here's everything you need to know about the United Kingdom launch of the service. "Clearly, that was a positive that people were happy to hear". And if you buy an Apple device, a year of Apple TV+ will be included for free.More news: China Exports Contract as Tariff War Hurts Sales to US
There was no bundle with Apple Music or other services as some analysts had expected.
The company also revealed fresh details concerning a number of its core products, including an updated Apple Watch and an improved iPad. An Apple TV+ subscription can be shared with up to six family members.
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".
For the very first time, Apple is releasing the latest iPhone models in the local market just a week after first-wave countries such as the US, UK, Australia and Singapore.
However, unlike Apple TV+, Disney Plus has not yet released a United Kingdom launch date and is expected at some point in 2020.More news: Wendy's to add breakfast including Frosty cappuccinos, honey butter chicken biscuits
