Apple makes no mention of Homekit at iPhone event

Apple makes no mention of Homekit at iPhone event”

Apple has signed up high-profile directors, actors and celebrities to help it launch its service. But there may be a sleuth of new software developments thrown into the mix including sleep tracking and a standalone App Store for the watch.

Along with Apple TV+, Apple is also launching a gaming service dubbed Apple Arcade.

And in order to appeal to more potential customers, Cook also said that anyone who buys a new Apple product like an iPhone, iPad, Apple TV set-top box or Mac computer will get a free year of Apple TV+ service. Especially because beyond their displays and camera modules, the basic iPhone 11 and the Pro devices are remarkably similar.

The TV+ service will launch November 1 in more than 100 countries at $4.99 per month and will include a "powerful and inspiring lineup of original shows, movies and documentaries". Some features rumoured to be coming to the new iPhone 11 didn't end up in the final product, including two-way wireless charging, something that's already available in some of its competitors.

Given the popularity and ubiquity of both brands, it's a safe bet that each will attract wide audiences.

The announcements on Tuesday come as Apple faces a host of business challenges, from the US-China trade war to antitrust investigations by the federal government.

And they have the same design - with more display space, less bezel and no home button - that Apple switched to with the iPhone X in 2017. The iPhone 11 is an update to the iPhone XR, while the 11 Pro and Pro Max are updates to the iPhone XS and XS Max.

The new generation of Apple Watch, the Series 5, was also unveiled. It also works with the Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil and includes Apple's A10 chip-making it created to power the new game subscription service, Apple Arcade.

Apple debuted the Series 5 watch which features a "new always on-retina display".

While there are no phones that support the Apple Pencil specifically, Samsung's Galaxy Note 10 comes with a smart stylus, the S Pen, which offers some of the same gesture controls, as well as air gesture controls, which allow you to control certain aspects of the phone by moving the pen.
