Apple unveiled updates to several products, including the iPhone and iPad at an event held at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park in Cupertino, Calif. on September 10.
Apple CEO Tim Cook and his team started the morning talking about the App store, particularly a new service called Apple Arcade. This is a subscription that will provide access to over 100 games that can be downloaded and played on the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV. Apple Arcade will be available starting on September 19, and will cost a reasonable $4.99 a month. With the family sharing feature, the several people can use the same subscription.
Apple introduced the seventh generation of the budget-friendly iPad. It retains the same processor but has a slightly bigger screen, going from 9.7 inches to 10.2 inches. The iPad also gains a feature normally only found on higher-end models, the Smart Connector that allows the Smart Keyboard to work. This is great for students, as it will make writing papers easier on the more affordable iPad. The new iPad can be ordered now and will be available starting September 30. It costs $329, but students can buy it for $299.
Three new iPhones were also released: the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. These phones boast larger screens, increased battery power, and more advanced camera features than their predecessors.
