Apple's new iPhones are finally here.

At its big "by innovation only" event on Tuesday, Apple unveiled its 2019 iPhone lineup, which includes three new models, the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

A South African release date and pricing are not yet known. 

The new iPhones retain their same prices as last year's designs, but Apple made some significant improvements to each of its top-of-the-line phones.
