6 Features That Finally Make the New Apple Watch Worth It

At the last minute, just when we thought there was nothing else for Apple to announce at its iPhone press event on Tuesday, the company gave a sneak peek of a new wireless charging pad it's working on. In that case, it doesn't make sense buying the new iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus; they're pretty much the same devices, with some upgrades.

If you've been through an iPhone pre-order before you already know you'll need to be on your toes.

Apple iPhone X is the only one of the three new iPhones launched (other being iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus) to have an 5.8-inch OLED display.

Apple didn't hold back on features for it's 10th anniversary iPhone: a stunning OLED HDR display with barely-there bezels, a "Bionic" A11 processor, AR capabilities and a set of cameras that could rival a DSLR. A new feature called portrait lighting will allow users to select lighting effects in portrait mode.

Apple senior vice president Phil Schiller said the glass-body iPhone 8 and 8 Plus handsets were the first smartphones "really created for augmented reality", with improved power and graphics over their predecessors.

For those not quite ready for generation X, the iPhone 8 costs less (from $699 and $799) and still has significant upgrades - especially in the camera features.

Priced from $999, the iPhone X will be available to preorder from 27 October 2017 and will begin shipping 3 November 2017. Both are available with 64GB and 256GB.

TECH COMPANY APPLE has released the details of its new smartphone, the iPhone X - which is pronounced as "ten", not "x" by the way, to commemorate ten years since the first iPhone's release.

Ward says between 400 and 500 homes received severe flood damage but there have been no serious injuries or deaths. Edisto Beach is also being evacuated, along with Harbor, Hunting, Fripp, Daufuskie, Tullifini and Knowles islands.

Twitter users made apparent good use of the line "I declare bankruptcy" from U.S. comedy The Office to poke fun at the £999 price.

End of the Home button.

As the device does away this the home button, functions will be accessed via a variety of touch gestures. In addition to unlocking the phone, the system also can be used for Apple Pay and other secure apps.

Instead, Apple has opted for Face ID which uses advanced depth-sensing technologies to unlock the phone with your face - Apple claims it can not be tricked by, say, a user's photo.

"That's what's going to keep Apple, Apple, is if we keep us, us".

If you want to buy Apple's highly-anticipated iPhone X in the USA, you'll have to shell out $999 for it.

"Apple has repeatedly shown it can persuade consumers to spend more of their disposable income on their phones", said Ian Fogg, an analyst with IHS Markit.
