Apple Unveils New iPhones That Have Three Cameras And Are More Durable

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) unveils its latest iPhones Tuesday during a major industry event.

Specifically, Apple is revealing three new iPhone models – a new upgraded "Pro" version of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, as well as a replacement for the iPhone XR. The company is also releasing new Apple Watches at the event being held at its headquarters in Cupertino, California.

Changes expected to the iPhones include three cameras on the back for wide-angle photography, higher-resolution pictures and video recording. There will also be new features for auto-correcting photos and live editing videos.

Wireless charging is getting an upgrade too. Going forward, devices like AirPods and the Apple Watch will be charged by laying them on the back of the phone. The Apple logo on the back of the phones will be centered so users know where to put their AirPods and Watch for charging.

Apple is also taking steps to make its devices more resistant to breakage. The new handsets will be able to withstand drops with more shatter-resistant glass and shock-resistance than in any previous models. The devices will also be able to survive under water for several hours.

This year’s Apple Watch updates will be software and casing-focused, with the company planning new versions in ceramic and titanium, several new straps and access to new apps. Apple is planning to launch new iPads and Macs later this year.
