Apple unveiled some new products today at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple’s Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino, California.
The first service that Apple brought up was Apple Arcade. From there, Apple had a few demos for some new games that the company will be offering when the service launches.
Speaking of which, Apple Arcade will be launching on September 19, 2019, and be priced at $4.99 a month. Additionally, you will be able to get a one-month free trial of the service. This will allow you to see what the service offers and whether or not it is the service for you.
Apple Arcade will be available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac.
Next up, Apple began to talk about Apple TV+. Apple talked about a new original show that will be on the service called SEE.
SEE is about a time in the future where people do not have access to the sun and cannot see. The people in the show are blind.
Apple describes the series like this:
“Jason Momoa stars as Baba Voss, the father of twins born centuries later with the mythic ability to see—who must protect his tribe against a powerful yet desperate queen who believes it’s witchcraft and wants them destroyed. Alfre Woodard also stars as Paris, Baba Voss’ spiritual leader.”
SEE and the rest of Apple TV+ is set to launch on November 1, 2019. It will cost $4.99 per month, as well as the fact that if you purchase a new iPhone, iPad, or Mac, you will be able to get a free year of Apple TV+ just for purchasing one of those products. There will be new originals released each month after its release.
Apple TV+ on launch day will have original programs like SEE, The Morning Show, Snoopy in Space, Ghost Writer, For All Mankind, Dickinson, The Elephant Queen and Helpsters will all be there to watch on the service on launch day.
Apple Watch Series 5:
This year, the Apple Watch Series 5 will have its first native always-on display. That means that you won’t have to flick your wrist up or tap the screen in order to get the screen to turn on. The display will just simply be always on.
The good news from the always-on screen is that even with that on, the Apple Watch Series 5 will still have the 18-hour all-day battery life. You’ll also be getting a built-in compass in this new Apple Watch too.
Every version of the cellular models will have the ability to make emergency phone calls internationally as well.
New Apple Watch studies are also being used with this Apple Watch. For the Apple Watch Series 5, you’ll be able to get Hearing Health, the Women’s Health Study and Heart and Movement Study.
Apple’s 2019 Apple Watch Series 5 can be pre-ordered today and will be released on September 20, 2019. The GPS version (regular) will cost $399 and the Cellular + GPS version will cost $499.
In other Apple Watch news, the Apple Watch Series 3’s price is now being decline. As of today, consumers will be able to get it for $199.
10.2-inch iPad 7th Generation:
The new iPad 7th Generation will be replacing the 9.7-inch iPad 6th generation. It will have the A13 Fusion processor and smart connectors so that users can buy items such as the Apple Smart Keyboard to write documents on. It will have Apple Pencil support too.

Apple unveiled what everyone was expecting, the new iPhone 11. It was 1/3 iPhones that were unveiled today.
First off, the new iPhone 11 can be found in purple, green, pink, white, black and Product RED. This will be the first time that the iPhone will be available in green and purple.
Additionally, it will have spacial audio, making it so that if you are watching a video from YouTube, Apple TV+, Hulu, Netflix or Disney+, you will be in a bubble-like space where you should only be able to hear what you are watching. The iPhone 11 will have Dolby Atmos support too.
Where the iPhone 11 shines is the camera. Both the front and rear-facing cameras are 12MP. The cameras are wide cameras and ultra-wide cameras, making it so that you can either get a great up-close shot or a great shot from afar.
It doesn’t stop there, though. The front-facing camera can now shoot in slo-mo. In fact, Apple is encouraging people to use the slo-mo feature with what they are calling “slofies” (slow selfies). Night Mode is also coming to the iPhone 11, which will make photos that are shot in low light look better.
As for the specs, the iPhone 11 will have an A13 processor, making the fastest and most powerful iPhone to date. The battery will last one-hour longer than the iPhone XR.
Pre-orders for the iPhone 11 will start on September 13, 2019 at 5 a.m. PT and will be released the following week on September 20, 2019.
iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max:
These will be the step-up from last year’s iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The back of the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max is made of matte-textured glass. Additionally, there will be new colors for it this year, which include Midnight Green, as well as older colors like Space Gray, Silver and Gold.
The iPhone 11 will have four hours of longer battery life than the iPhone XS and the iPhone 11 Pro Max will have five more hours of battery life, compared to the iPhone XS Max.
In the packaging of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro Max, users will be getting a Fast Charge 18W adapter so that they can quickly charge their new iPhones.
However, once again, the big thing with this year’s models are the cameras. Both versions of the iPhone 11 will have three camera lenses and Pro Camera System.
Face ID has been improved to work at better angles than the older iPhones that have had it.
The iPhone 11s will have tougher glass that will make it resist cracking a little bit better and that there will be better water resistance too.
Lastly, the cost of the iPhone 11 Pro will be $999 and the cost of the iPhone 11 Pro Max will be $1099. Pre-orders for the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max will also start on September 13, 2019 at 5 a.m. PT and will be released the following week on September 20, 2019.
Apple’s new iOS 13 will be released on September 19, 2019, which is a day before the release of the new iPhones to the public.
The newest version of macOS will be released sometime in October 2019, according to Apple. No specific date has been set at this time.
