Apple is trying to make “slofies” a thing after slow motion was added to the iPhone 11’s front facing cameras.
Apple announced the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max at its annual event in Cupertino, California. On all the new iPhones, you can take slow-motion selfie videos, which will be an entirely new function.
But Twitter wasn’t having the celebration of the new photos, or their name.
“#slofies Should we just call them iCameras with iPhone features from now on?” @AFJRB tweeted.
There were more key announcements from the September 10, 2019 event. Unlike its predecessor the XR, the iPhone 11 has an addition rear camera that can take ultra-wide photos. It also has an additional hour of battery life compared to the XR. It starts at $699 and will start shipping on September 20. They all feature Night mode, which improves the quality of dimly lit photos. They’re all powered by Apple’s A13 bionic chip, the fastest smartphone chip ever, and have improved retina displays.
Apple also gave updates for Apple TV+. The first Apple original TV shows will be available on November 1. The shows include “The Morning Show” and “See,” an apocalyptic sci-fi starring Jason Momoa.
