That said, Apple made some innovative, if not surprising, announcements this week. If you are in the market for a new iPhone, Apple Watch, or iPad, or even some new subscription services, there is something for everyone.
Starting at $699, the iPhone 11 is the best choice for most people. It’s rear camera boasts two lenses -- one wide angle lens, and one super wide angle lens. In addition it has an hour more of battery life than the XR, and has the latest A13 bionic processor.
If you are in the market for a new Apple Watch, this is definitely the one to get, but if you have a series 4, don’t bother as this is mostly the same model with a few enhancements.
Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade
Apple TV+ will provide access to new original series such as the alternate history moon landing drama, “For All Mankind,” The Steve Carrell / Jennifer Aniston vehicle, “The Morning Show”, and a remake of one of my own favorite childhood shows, “Ghostwriter.”
At $4.99 / month, this is definitely a bargain, however it’s small-ish library of original content, leaves a lot to be desired compared to Netflix, and the upcoming Disney Plus services for a few dollars more.
Also at $4.99, Apple Arcade will provide unlimited access to a growing library of iOS games.
