Apple iPhone 11 upgrade: the good, the bad and the ugly

Three new iPhones released at the launch event in California

Aside from revealing its new iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max models will have three cameras on the back (a feature rivals already have), Apple has also revealed details of its new TV streaming and gamer subscription services.

Because Apple releases so many different iPhone models, skipping generations like this makes choosing a new iPhone easier for the consumer. Non-Verizon and AT&T customers can still reserve the device online and pickup in store when it launches. Apple's first 5G-enabled phone, however, won't be available until next year, Bloomberg News reported earlier.

Apple Inc.'s decision to skip support for the latest wireless standard on its new iPhones may cost the company a chance at capturing China's biggest smartphone replacement wave in years.

But at least the iPhone 11 is slightly cheaper - in the U.S., the base 64GB model is now $699, down from the iPhone XR's $749 of past year.

The smallest 64GB storage option for the iPhone 11 will cost SG$1150, the cost of the 128GB will be SG$1220, and the price of a 256GB iPhone 11 is set at SG$1390. While chipsets like Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855+ (7nm) and Samsung's Exynos 9825 (7nm) have closed the gap to the Apple A12 Bionic, it's still the most capable chipset on a smartphone.

Apple iPhone 11 upgrade: the good, the bad and the ugly

And as always, there had to be jokes about how the new iPhone is mindbogglingly expensive priced. "That means Apple will miss out on the first six months of the cycle", he said. An Amazon Prime subscription, which includes streaming, is $10 a month, while Hulu goes for $6 a month with ads and $12 without.

In that light, Apple's main focus with the project may prove to be as much keeping iPhone and iPad sales rolling as wading into a costly streaming war.

The iPhones 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, revealed during a press event on Tuesday, will hit the U.S. market priced at $999 [£809] and $1,099, the same price as their predecessors, the iPhones XS and XS Max.

Apple is keeping its entry level prices low for a couple reasons. Apple has also made some cool changes to its Camera app which will further enhance the experience.

It will be "extremely difficult" for Apple to maintain its China position into the second half of next year, according to Jia Mo, an analyst at research firm Canalys. Where normally Apple would replace one device with another at the same price point, the iPhone 11 seems to replace the iPhone XR but ALSO cuts $50 off the base price.
