Along with a new headquarters for Apple's employees, the company also announced a new retail experience for its consumers. It's unclear if the iPhone X will solve this, but experts in the space have said that the technology generally has difficulty processing very light- and very dark-skinned faces. I'm finding it hard to justify it and label iPhone X as a device that'll take all your pains away and make your human life a lot better.
Keeping with Apple's trend of removing physical features from its flagship phones, the iPhone X doesn't have a Home button; rather, users will swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access similar functionality.
Camera-wise the iPhone X has all the same features as the 8 plus but it ads OIS to the telephoto camera. Who knows - maybe Apple Watch sales will swell large enough over the next year that Apple will begin reporting sales of the device in its own new segment called wearables.
Rather than travel with multiple cables, Apple is offering a wireless charging mat dubbed the AirPower. Apple also revealed that Apple Watch is now the No. 1 Smartwatch in the world.
Technology expert Ian Fogg, from IHS Markit, said the price jump had been overstated for what the iPhone X offers in terms of an upgrade. The latest feature in iPhone X is that it will not have a home button. Keep it locked with XXL for pricing info and more release details on the next chapter of Apple smartphones.
Apple has unveiled its new generation of iPhone, the 8 and the 8 Plus.
Apple announced a developer kit for the technology earlier this year called ARKit and said this technology has been built into the hardware and software of the new devices.
Starting at $699, the iPhone 8 is the cheapest of the three, while the iPhone 8 Plus costs $100 more at $799. The iPhone 8 will also have true-tone LED flash on its rear facing camera, and the iPhone 8 Plus will also still come with dual rear-facing cameras.
Coming to iPhone X, it has surely got its gimmicks and good looks. The Series 3 model will also have Apple Music available through cellular service. The same iPhone X costs $999 to buy outright, so you'd essentially save $400.08 by paying through Apple's monthly program.
The same sensors that power Face ID will also support some interesting new features, especially when it comes to augmented reality. The Apple TV 4K will start shipping from September 22 for $179 for the 32GB variant and $199 for the 128GB variant. All the new iPhones, including the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, include a glass back that's created to facilitate the company's also newly-introduced wireless charging technology.
The tech giant confirmed pre-orders for the two new phones will begin on September 15 and they will go on sale in the United Kingdom on September 22.
