Apple executives are announcing new products Tuesday afternoon, starting at 1 p.m. Eastern time, including new iPhone models and more details about a video streaming service.
Here’s the latest news:
■ Apple’s new video game subscription will be available Sept. 19 and will cost $4.99/month.
Apple TV Plus
■ Apple executives showed the first trailer for “See,” a show starring Jason Momoa of “Game of Thrones” and “Aquaman.”
■ The first shows will be available Nov. 1, and the company will be adding more Apple originals every month.
■ Apple TV Plus will be available in more than 100 countries at launch.
■ It will cost $4.99/month. Executives also said one year will be included for free when customers buy another Apple product, like an iPhone, computer, or laptop.
■ The seventh-generation iPad will have a 10.2-inch retina display, which is larger than previous models.
■ There will be support for an Apple pencil.
■ The enclosure will be made from 100 percent recycled aluminum.
■ It will start at $329. It can be ordered Tuesday and ships at the end of the month, company leaders said.
■ Earlier this year, Apple launched new mid-tier tablets, the iPad Air and new iPad mini. It’s also working on updated iPad Pros for release later, Bloomberg News has reported.
■ The Series 5 watch will have an “always on” retina display that never sleeps, which will let users check time and other features without raising or tapping it.
■ Apple also introduced a new Apple Research app that lets users sign up for studies, and a Compass app for gauging location.
■ New titanium and ceramic models will also be available.
■ Apple’s new iPhones will resemble recent models, but with better cameras and new colors.
■ The most expensive models, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, will now have three cameras on the back, including a new, wider-angle one to squeeze more of the landscape into the picture. They start at $1,000, the same as before.
■ The cheaper model, called the iPhone 11, will start at $700, down from $750 for the previous model, the iPhone XR. It now gets two lenses instead of one. The lower price reverses a trend in which premium phones get more expensive as people upgrade them less often.
■ The new phones come out Sept. 20.
