It's unclear what these new iPhones will be called, but rumors suggest the two new high-end iPhones could be called the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.

The iPhone 11 range has an all-glass back which is not dissimilar to the previous iPhone X and XR models, however the glass is created to flow up and around the camera module.

Kaiann Drance presents the new iPhone 11 at an Apple event at their headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., Sept. 10, 2019.

Seventh-generation iPad: It will feature a 10.2 inch retina display, almost 3.5 million pixels, greater brightness and a wider viewing angle. This device (the non-Max's) display panel sports 458-pixels per inch. Anyone who buys an iPhone, iMac or iPad will get one year of Apple TV Plus for free. For more on Apple's forthcoming projects, see the company's official press release.

Apple hasn't said exactly how big the batteries in its new iPhone range are, but it has said that the iPhone 11 Pro lasts up to 4 hours longer than the iPhone XS, while the iPhone 11 Pro Max lasts up to 5 hours longer than the iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone 11 lasts up to 1 hour longer than the iPhone XR.

And perhaps most importantly of all, an 18W adapter is included in the box for fast charging.

New iPhone cameras are meant to appeal to the growing number of people who use phones to take pictures of themselves, friends, family and the places they go. These cameras include 12MP, 12MP, and 12MP - all three the same amount of megapixels, with very different abilities. You'll be able to snap pictures and record video with a 120-degree field of view.

The three phones all have a night mode, 4K video recording at up to 60fps and a whole assortment of other modes that are mostly the same across the models.

The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max will be made available in a number of color combinations. Pacific Time and the phone will start shipping on September 20. iPhone 11 will be available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB models and in a range of colors - purple, green, yellow, black, white, and Product (RED).

Apple, however, spent a large chunk of its presentation touting its new Apple Arcade platform - a Netflix-like subscription service that will allow users to play a curated collection of high-end iOS games.
