Apple to Launch IPhone 11/Max Pro on September 10
Apple is maintaining its yearly launch of new product as it has announced that its new generation iPhone handset will be launched on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 at its Silicon Valley campus in Cupertino. The trend has been consistence for Apple to roll out its new product in September every year.
The theme written on the invitation sent by the company reads “by innovation only”, the tech company has been a forefront of innovation and we really look forward to the amazing features the new products will be coming with. The iPhone 2019 will probably be a whole lot like the 2018 iPhone though may not be exactly the same because the 5G iPhone, the folding iPhone and the laser-guided 3D time-of-flight camera is slated for the 2020 model.
The new iPhones are expected to be in three models, the iPhone 11, 11 Max/11 Pro and 11R. The devices will likely include better cameras, faster processors and iOS 13.
Apple’s new phones are coming at a time when the premium smartphone market has grown competitively as rivals are competing, introducing phones with flexible screens and with 5G – two innovations not found in Apple devices.
This has made the general iPhone sales cool off as people are waiting for a stunning innovation before upgrading their phones to new models. Hence, many people are looking toward 2020 for big iPhone changes.
According to reports, iPhone’s revenue overall was down by 12% from last year. Apple was said to have been pushed off the top-three seller list by a Chinese rival.
The company fell to fourth place in global smartphone sales, shipping 35.3 million iPhones in the second quarter compared to the 36.2 million units shipped by Oppo.
South Korean consumer electronics titan, Samsung remained in first place with 23% of the market, having shipped 75.1 million smartphones, China’s Huawei shipped 58.7 million smartphones to claim 18% of the market. Apple, however, remained in third place when it came to global shipments.
Apple recently partnered with Goldman Sachs to unveil Apple Card, a credit card that can be used to cater for all transactions. The apple card is designed to be used primarily on Apple devices such as iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or Mac.
