Apple releases latest iPhone

It’s been over a year since Apple has released their latest phone and they’ve come back with new ways to compete with other companies. The iPhone 11 was announced on Sept.13 and it has caught the attention of many people with new features like a longer lasting battery, a high quality camera, new colors, etc. Starting at the price of a $1,000, the iPhone was released on Sept. 20 in all retail stores around the world.

Apple is the number one company in the U.S. that leads in phone sales blowing Samsung and Google out of the park by a significant amount and it is seen in most schools to this day. Nowadays, students have access to mobile phones and Apple seems to be the company that most students use. At Tompkins, 21 students out of 35, own an Apple phone and the other 14 have different types of androids such as Samsung, Google, LG, etc. Apple clearly has an impact on the judgement of high school students and with their latest iPhone, Apple’s growth will spark with more people converting to their phones.

For only $100-$200 more, Apple provides the option to choose the iPhone 11 Pro Max which comes with a bigger LED screen than the iPhone 11 Pro and triple rear camera that the iPhone 11 does not have. The iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max have 3 different cameras, all with different focal lengths: there’s a new ultra-wide camera with an f/2.4 13mm lens, the f/1.8 26mm main camera with a slightly improved sensor, and the telephoto camera with the same sensor as last year but a faster 52mm f/2.0 lens.

All new versions of the iPhone 11 come with a longer lasting battery. The iPhone 11 battery lasts up to 17 hours, the iPhone 11 Pro is roughly comparable with up to 18 hours, and the larger iPhone 11 Pro Max has up to 20 hours of usage. With its 6.1-inch display, the iPhone 11 is between the 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro and 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max in size.

The price may be expensive but people can trade in their old phones as long as it’s in working condition and the price can go to $400-$500 instead of a $1,000-$1,100. The iPhone 11 is the newest product to be introduced and is highly anticipated by many around the world. With new features and a low price, there’s no doubt that Apple will still be the leading company in cellphone sales, with their new iPhone 11, it’s just as easy and simple to use
