Apple Event 2019 Highlights: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max announced
New Delhi | Jagran Tech Desk: Apple is expected to unveil three new iPhone models -- iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max -- as its flagship announcement at a special event in San Francisco tonight.
The company's new phone models will likely mirror last year's iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max. Prices are likely to stay at $750 to $1,100, before add-ons such as more storage. And they will likely have the same design — with more display space, less bezel and no home button — that Apple switched to with the iPhone X in 2017.
Traditionally, new Apple iPhone models have gone on pre-orders the Friday after the launch event and the sales have opened on the second Friday. So, we can expect the 2019 iPhone lineup to be put for pre-orders on September 13 and the sales to start on September 20.
As well as three new iPhones, we could also see Apple announce the Apple Watch 5, while we're also hoping to hear more about Apple TV Plus and learn release dates for the final builds of iOS 13, iPadOS and macOS Catalina.
