"I think they realized that XR was pricey as the price adjustments in Q2 led to a surge in sales for iPhone XR", said Tarun Pathak, Associate Director, Counterpoint Research.

This year is no different. Of course, the big news is the iPhone 11 Pro, featuring a brand-new display, a brand-new chip, and major camera upgrades.

The event was trending on Twitter before it even began, with tech fans hypothesizing about potential iPhone 11 news. But first, here's what the internet had to say about the new triple-camera design (cue the memes). Konami will also be releasing a new version of its classic Frogger game.

The more expensive iPhone 11 Pro will have three cameras - a wide angle, telephoto and ultra-wide camera. Apple has signed up high-profile directors, actors and celebrities to help it launch its service. Some of the features feel a little like gimmicks (hello, "slofies"), but since we take nearly all of our photos on our iPhone, I'm excited to see what it can do. Honestly, that camera bump doesn't look so bad right now. The iPhone 11 Pro is expected to come with a smaller screen but will be identical in specs and features when compared to the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The new iPhones will start shipping on September 20. At $699, it is also $50 cheaper than the starting price of the iPhone XR. A new Apple Watch 5 comes with an always-on display and the ability to sign up for several new clinical health research studies.

As to the Watch: having recognized that people don't really need a watch anymore as their phone tells them the time, Apple is pushing even harder on the concept of the Apple Watch as a valuable health device.

Earlier in the week some observers had predicted Apple could get a significant bump in sales this year from its slate of new iPhones, given that numerous company's roughly 900 million existing iPhone users are primed for an upgrade, with phones that are, on average, five years old.

Apple is finally divulging details about its new streaming service, Apple TV+.

The biggest difference is likely to be in the phone's camera, an area that Apple and its rivals have all been trying to improve as consumers snap more pictures on their devices. But that metric is less useful for Apple handsets, which are tuned to iOS much more tightly than Android and get decent battery life with lower capacity - expect this one to last at least through the day and then some.

The new iPad starts at $329.

At its September event, Apple announced that the first Apple TV+ shows will be available on November 1 in over 100 countries, and the service will only cost $4.99 per month for the whole family.
