It’s no surprise that September is one of the most anticipated months for Apple fans as the tech brand always announces its refreshed line of iPhones for the year.
This year, for the first time ever, the company simultaneously streamed the Apple Event that was held on Tuesday on YouTube as well as its own site, making it so much more exciting and easier for fans around the world to get live updates on what Apple’s bringing to the stores before the end of September.
As expected, Apple unveiled its brand-new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone Pro Max during the keynote speech, and they’re all set to make their debut in Malaysia on September 27! Both phones picked up a fresh palette of colours, improved battery life and A13 Bionic chip for a more power-efficient performance, but that’s not the only highlights of the devices.
What stood out the most was the camera software and hardware that make taking great photos a whole lot easier. Built with the all-new dual-camera system, the iPhone 11 boasts a redesigned interface that uses the new Ultra Wide camera to capture objects outside the frame of its Wide camera. Apart from the usual feature of shooting beautifully sharp 4K video at 60fps, the Ultra Wide camera has the ability to capture 4x more scene, making it a perfect tool to snap fast-moving shots. In fact, the zoom-in effect now pulls along the audio as well!
While the iPhone 11 Pro is packed with the same exciting camera features as the iPhone 11, it’s up a notch with the first triple-camera system that combines cutting-edge technology with the legendary simplicity of iPhone. In addition to the Wide and Ultra Wide cameras, the iPhone 11 Pro has a third Telephoto camera that gives you a combined 4x optical zoom range with more framing options.
Dedicated Night mode also becomes a base feature for both the 11 and 11 Pro, making shooting in a low light environment a breeze. From dimly lit restaurants to sunsets on the beach, the new mode uses intelligent software and A13 Bionic to capture pictures that look more natural, brighter and has less noise. Another feature which we never thought we’ll want is the slow-motion video for the front-facing camera, essentially known as ‘slofie’ by Apple. The new 12-megapixel TrueDepth camera lets you take slow-motion selfie videos at 120 fps or 4K at 60 fps.
If you’re one who’s clumsy with your phone and often risk dropping it into a pool of water, the iPhone 11 is now water-resistant up to two metres for up to 30 minutes. That’s double the depth of the iPhone XR! On the other hand, the iPhone 11 Pro is once again on a higher level with water-resistant ability up to four metres – twice the depth of the iPhone 11.
Will you be making the switch from your current phone to the new iPhone 11?
The iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max will be available in Malaysia from September 27 onwards with a starting price of RM3,399 for the iPhone 11, RM4,899 for the iPhone 11 Pro and RM5,299 for the iPhone 11 Pro Max. For more in-depth information, head over to Apple’s official website.
