(CNN Business) —  

Apple (AAPL) unveiled its latest slate of iPhones on Tuesday at a widely-covered media event at its campus in Cupertino, California.

The new lineup includes the iPhone 11, an entry-level device, as well as the higher-end iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, which have four-figure price tags.

The company’s iPhone sales have slumped in recent quarters in part because consumers are waiting longer to upgrade their smartphones. So, is it actually worth it to upgrade to these new models?

The short answer: It depends how much you care about better cameras and improved battery life.
