Apple also played a sample video shot and edited on iPhone 11 Pro. It is really Pro-grade, perfect for mobile cinematographers and video bloggers. We know what's everyone's next choice for video recording on smartphones is going to be.

iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max - the premium iPhones
Cook launched iPhone 11 Pro. Phill takes the stage to talk about the Pro. For the first time, Apple has called an iPhone "Pro", let's see if it is justified. There's are four colours, Midnight Green, Space Grey, Silver and Gold. The matte finish is really a boon, something that puts the fingerprint smudging issue to bed, once and for all.
Apple showed us iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max with 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch Super Retina Displays, respectively.
iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are powered by Apple A13 Bionic chip, and two main highlights of the new chip are the machine learning integration and consume less power. In fact, it is the most power-efficient chipset. iPhone 11 Pro last 4 hours more than the iPhone XS and the Max lasts 5 hours longer than the iPhone XS Max. There's an 18W fast charging adapter IN THE BOX.

Apple unveils A13 Bionic chipset, which powers the latest iPhone 11. It is the fastest GPU in the smartphone, best suited for gaming. Surprisingly, Apple also did a quick comparison with rivals, Samsung, Google and Huawei, just to show its new A13 chipset performs better than every other Android smartphone.
Pascal's Wager demo on the iPhone 11 looked pretty smooth. It's a 60fps game and works just fine on the iPhone 11. The graphics look deep. But really looking forward to testing it to see how it works in the real world.
Apple iPhone 11 will last one hour longer than iPhone XR. Take a quick look at the key features below:

In addition to ultra-wide shots, portraits are available in their full glory. There's a Night Mode in iPhone 11 for all those low-light photos. Check out this sample:
Oh, the iPhone's best feature - video recording - is still the best. A sample video shot entirely on iPhone 11 in 4K looks stunning.
Apple has also improved the 12MP front camera, which also supports slow-mo videos.

Cook played a video, which shows how Apple Watch has changed lives and saved them as well. It's time to continue that success journey with the new Apple Watch.
