During Apple’s highly anticipated September 2019 event, the tech giant announced an upgraded version of almost all of its most popular products, including iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches. As an extra incentive to buy the new devices, Apple announced that the purchase of a new iPad, iPhone, laptop, or desktop will come with a complimentary 1-year subscription to Apple TV Plus. The company’s own streaming service, which will feature original content, is set to launch on November 1st, for $4.99 a month.

Apple also announced a new and improved seventh generation iPad, starting at a reasonable $329 a unit. The newer model features a display size of 10.2 inches, compared to the previous 9.7-inch display. The seventh-generation includes a Smart Connector and A10 Bionic processor, which can be found in some iPhones as well.

Next up on the list of updated items is the Apple Watch Series 5, which looks pretty much like the Series 4, but features a new always-on display function. Users can simply set the Apple Watch to dim its display instead of blacking out completely, and the Series 5 still has an 18-hour battery life. The prices didn’t go up for the Series 5, with the GPS model starting at $399 and the GPS + LTE version starting at $499.

What everyone was truly waiting for was the new trio of iPhones being announced, which included the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The iPhone 11 is simply an updated version of the iPhone XR, and features a dual-camera system, slow-motion selfie videos, a 6.1 - inch LCD display, and Apple’s new A13 Bionic processor and GPU. The Apple iPhone 11 is starting at $699.

Going even further than the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max both feature a three-camera system, which can take photos with a telephoto lens, ultra-wide lens, and regular lens. The new iPhone 11 Pro’s both come with the same A13 Bionic processor and GPU as the iPhone 11, but at a steeper price. The iPhone 11 Pro (5.8-inch OLED) will be starting at $999, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max (6.5-inch OLED) will start at $1199.
