Apple is expected to launch the Apple iPhone 11 series along with a 16-inch MacBook Pro, Apple Watch Series 5 and a Tile-like Bluetooth tracker at its upcoming event.
The countdown has started. Apple will schedule a special event on September 10 at its main office in San Jose. The event will be at the Steve Jobs Theatre in the Apple office. At the event, the company is expected to launch its generation iPhone series consisting of the iPhone XR successor – iPhone 11, the iPhone XS successor – the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone XS Max successor — iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The event will begin at 10AM PDT or 10:30PM IST on September 10 at the Steve Jobs Theatre in the company’s headquarters and it is also likely to witness the tech giant unveiling its next generation of software — iOS 13, watch OS6, macOS Catalina and tvOS13. When it comes to this event, there are some certainties and some possibilities while some rumours are probably too wild to be true. First, let’s talk of certainties.
iPhone 11 series is coming
iPhone 11 series: The iPhone 11 series is going to take the centre stage at today’s launch event. The iPhone 11 series is not only to expected to bring a faster (A13 chipset) and stronger iPhones to the users but it is also likely to bring major camera upgrades to the company’s latest batch of smartphones. This includes major improvements to capturing images under low light conditions. The iPhone 11 series is also likely to bring functionality that would allow users to live edit videos while shooting. It is also expected to bring reverse wireless charging and iPhone XR-like haptic touch to all iPhone 11 models.
In total, we are likely to see three new iPhone modes: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
As far as features are concerned, expect the new iPhones to have:
- New Apple A13 processor
- iOS 13 software
- Upgraded camera system with 3 cameras: One regular camera, one wide-angle lens camera and one zoom lens camera in the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. In the iPhone 11, expect to see two cameras: regular camera and the zoom-lens camera.
iPhone 11 prices
As far as the cost of the devices is concerned, reports indicate that Apple could price its 2019 iPhone similar to what it did in case of its 2018 iPhones. According to reports, the base variant of iPhone 11 is likely to cost around $749, which is the same as the base price at which the iPhone XR was launched last year. While this price translates to Rs 53,800 approx, in India Apple launched the base variant of iPhone XR at around Rs 77,000. So it is possible that we would see the same difference in prices this year as well.
As far the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max are concerned, the two smartphones could start at $999 (Rs 71,700 approx) and $1099 (Rs 78,900 approx) respectively. However, we will have to wait and see how the company prices its 2019 iPhones in India. But the iPhone 11 will be very expensive.
The new watch also coming
Apple Watch Series 5: It is almost customary for Apple to introduce an upgraded version of its Apple Watch Series along with the launch of a new iPhone model. This year’s Apple Watch is likely to feature an OLED display and come with sleep tracking technology. The sleep tracking feature of Apple’s smartwatch will be accessible via the Apple Health app and a new Sleep app.
Apart from the above-mentioned devices, Apple is also expected to launch a Tile like Bluetooth tracker that would enable users to find the tagged items using the company’s Find My app. It would come with a special Lost Mode that would allow other iPhone users to locate a lost item and return it to its rightful owner if the owner isn’t able to the item themselves.
Wild rumours but will probably won’t launch
Apple is expected to launch a 16-inch MacBook Pro with a scissor keyboard one of these days. Some reports suggest that this laptop will be launched along with the iPhone 11. But chances are that this will not be the case because Apple usually holds the iPhone and MacBook launch events separately because it doesn’t want two products to share the limelight at the same event.

Apple event, as I mentioned before, will begin at 10 AM PDT at the company’s headquarters in California on September 10.
