From Forbes,Taking a look back at another week of news and headlines from Cupertino, this week’s Apple Loop looks at the three new iPhones launched on Tuesday, the new entry-level iPad, an update to the Apple Watch, what’s missing from the new iPhones, why you should wait for next year’s phone, and why many people are scared of the iPhone 11.
Apple Loop is here to remind you of a few of the very many discussions that have happened around Apple over the last seven days
The iPhone 11 Family Is Here
The geekerati are ecstatic, the new iPhones are here! With the launch of the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max, Apple’s portfolio for the 2019/20 season has some flagships. For the hardcore, they are an automatic purchase. For everyone else trying to decide, cutting through the marketing and limited hands-on experiences from the hand-picked audience at the Steve Jobs Theater is a little more challenging.
Figuring out whether to buy a new iPhone always requires sorting through marketing mumbo jumbo. Is it a legit upgrade … or just another upsell? This year’s crop of iPhones, arriving in stores Sept. 20, offers some of the most incremental improvements I’ve ever seen from Apple. However, there are also ways to avoid overpaying for features you don’t really need…
If you crank it up to iPhone 11 instead, what do you get? A fair amount of upsell: You’ll get a processor that feels just slightly faster (but might make the phone last longer), stronger glass (that you still shouldn’t drop on concrete), and Face ID that might work even when the phone is flat on a table

The iPhone 11 Pro And The Software Behind The Camera
To simplify matters, the iPhone 11 is the 2019 version of the iPhone XR, and the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max take over from the iPhone XS and XS Max. The chips are a bit faster, the specs are slightly increased, but The obvious differences being the dual -lens camera in the former and the triple-lens in the latter. Apple is certainly hoping the camera upgrades are the main draw. Stephen Nellis reports on the software behind Apple’s average camera set-up.
