Apple's Latest iPhone 11 Range

Technology Inceptions

Apple has been losing ground to competitors with cheaper and feature-packed handsets in recent years.The recent queues at the Shanghai and Beijing stores, which combined added up to few dozen customers, were in sharp contrast to previous years, when hundreds used to wait for hours outside Apple's shops to be the first to grab its latest offerings.

 

But much of the fanfare in China has moved online where the pre-sales for iPhone 11, priced between $699 (roughly Rs. 50,000) and $1,099 (roughly Rs. 78,000),started recently. Chinese e-commerce site JD.com said day one pre-sales for the iPhone 11 series were up 480 percent versus comparable sales for the iPhone XR last year.


Customers were concerned that the range was not enabled for fifth-generation networks, putting them behind 5G models already released by China's Huawei Technologies and smaller rival Vivo, and expressed hopes that Apple could make it happen for its next line-up.
