We are all shook from the announcements during the #AppleEvent, especially with the official launch of the new iPhone 11.

Netizens, consumers and tech enthusiasts take to Twitter yesterday as the iPhone 11 series was officially launched in annual #AppleEvent.

Today, September 11, ‘iPhone 11‘ trended in the Philippines.

What’s new?

With Apple‘s release of their new line of innovative smartphones, what could be different this time?


Yes, you are not seeing just one or two cameras in the photo above, there really are THREE CAMERAS in Apple’s new launch of their high-end phones.

These are the iPhone Pro and the iPhone Pro Max. Respectively, they are meant to replace 2017’s iPhone X and iPhone XS.

But are triple cameras really necessary to make your photos look pro?

Apple, in their introductory videos of the phones, says that these three cameras each have three different lens types – telephoto, wide, and ultra-wide. For more details regarding the technicalities of the phone, just watch their video below.

A relatively cheaper alternative


Is the iPhone Pro or the iPhone Pro Max too expensive for you? Then cry no more because at a relatively lower price, Apple also released the iPhone 11 to save the day.

This is meant to replace the iPhone XR too, the cheapest option from the iPhone X series.

However, iPhone 11 only has a dual-camera, a downgrade from the Pro’s triple cameras.

Watch the explanatory video below to see the difference.

The verdict

Yes, the features of new iPhones are really impressive. What a camera! (Or we should probably say, WHAT CAMERAS!)

However, what some netizens are commenting about Apple’s new release is the underwhelming physical look of the phone. Some are even saying that the triple cameras trigger their trypophobia. We can’t blame them though, the triple cameras really look weird!

They also look like an alien, kinda like this one.

The iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, and iPhone 11 will be available for pre-order on September 13.

Meanwhile, the exact release date in stores and pricing rate in the Philippines will be announced soon by local carriers and official partners. Prices could range from Php 40,000 php to Php 50,000.
