Upshot of today’s Apple Announcement.
The iPhone is ALL about the cameras now. It has three iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. It’s pretty much the only thing Apple mentions on their website. Sure there’s a little bit about the improved battery, and the new processor, but it’s the cameras they are selling it on. And I’m buying…
I skipped last year’s model because the upgrade wasn’t worth it for me. I don’t use my phone heaps since being house-bound, I mean, since working from home. But I do like the new cameras and I have already grown to like the new green!
Apple Watch Series 5… I really want to get one of these too… again, we skipped last year’s model because the only thing appealing in it was the ECG, and it’s a feature that wasn’t launched here in Australia, still isn’t actually, but hopefully it’s coming soon. Goodness knows what the hold up is. I guess our medical board is hard to get approval through. But given we skipped last year’s we’ll likely get this upgrade.
I really would like the Edition ceramic version, but can’t really justify the cost. In fact I’m even looking at the aluminium rather than the stainless steel to save the money… but that may change once I see them in person. 🤓
Other than that, Apple Arcade launches on the 20th of this month, along with the rollout of the new iOS, it looks like Arcade will be $7.99 at launch. I don’t play a lot of games so I won’t be on this one.
Then there was Apple TV+ which is the new streaming service from Apple, it will also be $7.99 per month at launch, and it comes with what seem like a bunch of great titles, but do I really need yet another streaming service? Oh, but it comes free for 12 months when you purchase a new apple device capable of watching Apple TV+, so I guess I’ll get it for the first 12 months when I get my new phone. It launches on November 1.
