In contrast to previous years, however, it is not expensive hardware that everyone is talking about this time.

During the presentation at the Steve Jobs Theater, Apple revealed that the iPhone 11 is offering slow-motion video capabilities to the front camera for the first time. And the company has come up with a new term: the "slofie".

The announcement has been received with wild mixed assessments; while some have already found the sentence, most others tear it into pieces on social media.
