Tech-tember is in full swing, as Apple held their annual September Special Event this past Tuesday to reveal the latest updates to some of their most popular gadgets.
During the two-hour keynote, Apple introduced their newest iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch models for 2019 and provided updates to their upcoming Apple Arcade and Apple TV+ services, which are set to launch in Canada on September 19 and November 1, respectively -- click here to learn more about Apple TV+ and how much the streaming service will cost in Canada.
Here's a short rundown of Apple's trio of new products and when you can order them in Canada.
Three new iPhones were unveiled during the event -- iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, each with design refinements over the previous generation and big camera upgrades across the board.
iPhone 11 is Apple's successor to the iPhone XR and retains the same 6.1" Liquid Retina Display as its predecessor with an improved aluminium/glass design, but adds the new A13 Bionic processor that's up to 20% faster than the A12 Bionic, a dual rear camera setup with one wide and one ultra-wide lens, improved IP68 water resistance and more. iPhone 11 starts at $979.00 and comes in six colours with 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of storage.
iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are successors to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, respectively, marking the first time Apple has used the Pro moniker on an iPhone. Both models have an improved stainless steel/glass design and feature brighter Super Retina XDR OLED displays in 5.8" (11 Pro) or 6.5" (11 Pro Max) sizes, the A13 Bionic processor and a triple rear camera setup with one wide, one ultra-wide and one telephoto lens. iPhone 11 Pro starts at $1379.00, while iPhone 11 Pro Max starts at $1519.00, each available in four colours with 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of storage.
All iPhone 11 models will be available for pre-order at the Apple Store starting September 13 at 8:00 AM ET and will ship September 20.
The new Apple Watch Series 5 was also showcased during the event, with upgrades including a new always-on display, built-in compass and a titanium case option for the world's most popular smartwatch.
Apple Watch Series 5 comes in the same 40mm or 44mm sizes as the previous-generation with aluminum, stainless steel, ceramic or titanium case options. The most notable new features include the addition of an always-on OLED display, which lets you view the time without having to raise your wrist to wake the screen, along with a built-in compass for improved navigation and fitness tracking.
Apple Watch Studio was also launched, which lets shoppers configure custom Apple Watch combinations online at the Apple Store instead of picking one of the standard configurations.
Apple Watch Series 5 is available to order at the Apple Store now starting at $529.00 and will ship September 20.
A new seventh-generation iPad was announced to replace the sixth-generation 9.7" iPad released last year. The new iPad sports a larger 10.2" Retina Display and adds the first-generation Smart Connector, which means it's compatible with Apple's full-size Smart Keyboard and other third-party accessories.
Otherwise, much of the new 10.2" iPad remains the same as the 2018 model, including the thick-bezel design with Touch ID, A10 Fusion processor, 8MP rear camera and Apple Pencil support.
The new 10.2" iPad comes in three colours with 32GB or 128GB of storage and is available to order at the Apple Store now starting at $429.00, with orders shipping September 30.
