11th Sep 2019
While it only felt like last month that Vogue digital editor Danielle Gay descended on the Apple campus in Cupertino, California, to take a first look at the newest iterations of the iPhone — what we know now as the Xs, Xs Max and XR, — here we are back again only 12 months later to experience a whole new generation. Introducing the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max — the new, and likely your next, iPhone.
This year, the team at Apple have chosen to focus on a few specific areas for their 2019 phone, one being the new dual‑camera system (meaning better photos and videos), and the other the chip inside (which also happens to be the fastest chip ever in a smartphone). Alongside that, we’ve been blessed with a new-generation Apple watch, iPad, and a whole lot more.
Here, we’ve broken down the key announcements that came out of Apple’s big 2019 event.
The iPhone 11 comes in six colours
Red, purple, green, yellow, white and black — those are the options you’ll be able to pick from when purchasing the newest iPhone offering, made from the toughest-ever anodised aluminium and glass yet.
Not only does Apple claim that the iPhone 11’s battery lasts all day, but it also comes with spatial audio: an audio enhancement that creates a sound field around the phone making it feel like you’re at the movies.
And it has two cameras
Probably the standout feature of today’s reveal, not one but two cameras sit on the back of the iPhone 11: a 12mp wide camera and 12mp ultra-wide camera.
What this means is that with every image, you’ll be able to get a more expansive view of your subject, with the same resolution. The cameras also come with a new Night Mode feature, which makes for clearer and cleaner images in the dark.
But the iPhone 11 Pro has three
Because there’s always one step better, the Pro version of the new iPhone comes with a total of three cameras on the back of the phone’s shell. Introducing the Ultra Wide, Wide and Telephoto cameras.
This time designed specifically for video, the system records in 4K and allows zooming between the three lenses. You also now have the ability to rotate, crop, increase exposure and apply filters to videos instantly.
In addition to the extra camera, Apple says the iPhone 11 Pro’s battery will last four hours longer than the iPhone XS and the iPhone 11 Pro Max will last five hours longer than the iPhone XS Max.
The Apple watch wants you to stay safe
Today’s event also saw the newest Apple watch come to fruition, building on the successful health capacities of the series 4.
Now, with the touch of the button, your Apple watch has the ability to call emergency contacts in over 150 countries around the world, just by pressing and holding down the side button, even without your iPhone.

And is made from 100 per cent recycled aluminium
The Apple watch series 5 watch has the widest assortment of case finishes ever — with the aluminium models coming in silver, gold, and space grey, now all 100 per cent recycled.
You can still however get the classic stainless steel styles in gold, silver and space black, alongside a new scratch-resistant white ceramic case.
A 7th-gen iPad arrived
If you’re into your iPads, this one is the biggest yet. Measuring at 10.2-inches, the new iPad boasts features that allow you to do everything from one-finger typing on the screen’s floating keyboard, quickly switch between multiple apps and connect your SD card or a thumb drive. It comes in silver and, space grey and gold and starts at $529.
And we have a release date for Apple TV plus
Earlier in March we were presented with Apple TV plus — a Netflix-like streaming platform that would house Apple-exclusive content which users could access for a monthly subscription fee. Now we know that the service will launch 1 November in over 100 countries and regions and cost $7.99 inc. GST per month with a seven-day free trial.
