As we previously predicted, there were no real surprises when Apple Inc (All Sessions) (AAPL) unveiled the iPhone 11 to the market in Cupertino, California overnight. Contrary to speculation, Apple did not mention any new sleep-tracking functionality, instead revealing a new always-on display created to last up to 18 hours, apps like Noise for monitoring ambient noise levels, and Cycle Tracking for logging menstrual cycle data. The new green shade is more of a sea foam than straight green.

Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, called the Pro models "the most powerful and most advanced iPhones we have ever built, with a stunning design". Combined with the lack of 5G, that made the new iPhones "less attractive and future-proof" for Chinese consumers, Shah said, forecasting that Apple will sell 30-35 million iPhones in China this year, down from 63 million phones in 2015. In addition, the results are sharper and more studio-looking than the last generation of devices, too, with better masking and background-foreground identification. No, but the new camera upgrades might be enough to make you forget about the bump.

Apple's unveiling of three new iPhones in California met with a limp reaction on Wednesday from analysts and on social media in China, where the USA giant has been losing ground to competitors in recent years.

For years, the iPhone represented the majority of Apple's sales, but the company has seen the numbers drop. This device will be priced at Rs 64,900 onwards in India.Other features of the iPhone 11 include Dolby Atmos audio, Wi-Fi 6 and an ultra wide camera lens. I was only able to take a few sample shots, but the effect of the ultra-wide lens reminded me of the kind of shots I'd expect with third-party lens accessories like Moment. They also have new computational photography features, like Deep Fusion photography, which improves photos by analyzing groups of almost identical shots to find and stitch together the best elements of each.

The cameras can also shoot three videos simultaneously. The two new Pro iPhones remain easy to hold, manage and don't run the risk of slipping out of your hands.

It's a bit different from how Android phone makers have implemented night modes in that there's no option to manually switch it on.

Apple alone is to blame for this reaction. The maker stated in the phone's unveiling that the iPhone 11 Pro has four more hours battery life than the iPhone XS, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max lasts five hours more than the iPhone XS Max. The 12 MP camera can now shoot in 4K and slow motion. Right now the iPhone 11 Pro is "the fastest smartphone on the market" as its CPU and GPU scores blow everything else out of the water, including the Snapdragon 855 flagship Android chipset.

The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max also pack in a better selfie camera.

Since Apple launched iPhone 11 models on Tuesday, it's triple camera has caught the attention of the tech world with numerous memes surfacing on the internet.

The fifth-generation Apple Watch has a touch-screen face that is always on so the time and notifications are always viewable, while still being stingy on battery power.
