Despite a year of slumping iPhone sales, Apple chose to largely stick to its smartphone playbook with new models announced at a closely watched press event on Tuesday.
Apple (AAPL) unveiled two high-end iPhones -- the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max -- with four-figure price tags, as well as a cheaper iPhone 11. The models replaced the similarly priced iPhone XS, XS Max and XR, respectively.
In typical Apple fashion, the company played up improvements to the battery life, camera system and hardware under the hood of the new phones. But on the surface, the new iPhones do not look radically different than the previous year.
The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max models feature an improved camera system, with three cameras on the back of the phone, and better battery life than previous models. Apple says the iPhone 11 Pro will last four hours longer than the iPhone XS and the iPhone 11 Pro Max will last five hours longer than the iPhone XS Max.

The day in question, June 22nd 1994, was a typically scorching occasion inside California's Rose Bowl Stadium - a veritable modern day coliseum if ever there was one. And, some would say that it was inside this coliseum that Colombia's captain was sentenced for execution.
In truth, the reasons for Escobar's untimely death are far more convoluted than could be simply attributed to football…
