We'll keep you updated on the latest. "The Apple Watch, that was pretty good", said Michael Oberdick, the owner of iOutlet in Bowling Green, a company that sells previously-owned Apple devices and as well as repairs Apple products.

The New Apple Watch Series 3 will also let you stream Apple Music on the watch, without needing your phone nearby. Apple also included its W2 chip for Bluetooth connectivity and 85% faster Wi-Fi connection. The top end version with 256GB RAM will cost Rs 1,02,000. One without cellular goes for $329, down from $369 for the comparable model now. Apple also reduced the price of Apple Watch Series 1 to $249. Just like the previous models, Apple has kept the price on the higher end.

The Apple TV 4K is powered by the custom-made A10X Fusion chip, which is used on the Apple iPad Pro. The watch still has the same design, which is a surprise, and comes with a processor that is 70 per cent faster.

Apple's just-announced iPhone X is its most expensive phone ever, with a max price of $1,149. The iPhone 8 has a 4.7-inch screen while the 8 Plus has a 5.5-inch one.

All-Screen Design front and back. The Retina display this year comes with True Tone technology, which Apple used on its iPads that adapt to the colour environment. You can also play with the depth of focus in pictures.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available for pre-order on Fri., Sept. 15, with a general release taking place on Fri., Sept. 22.

The 256GB model meanwhile in the U.S. will sell for US$1149 (A$1433), compared to the Australian price of A$1829 - a difference of A$396. "With the introduction of iPhone ten years ago, we revolutionized the mobile phone with Multi-Touch. iPhone X marks a new era for iPhone-one in which the device disappears into the experience". The Face ID also works with third-party apps and Apple Pay. There's no doubt the X is the best-looking iPhone yet, but aside from that bezel-less OLED screen, its only other advantage over the 8 Plus is a slightly better secondary zoom camera. The iPhone X Super Retina display supports 2046×1125 resolution, with 455 PPI, and HDR in both Dolby Vision and HDR.

iPhone X looks pretty but I can't get my mind off the split status bar; it's a big concern for me.

The iPhone X, the premium smartphone formerly referred to as the iPhone 8, is the undoubted star of the September 12 Apple event.

Chief executive Tim Cook explained in the 90-minute keynote introducing three new smartphones, a new watch and TV console exactly how the company is continuing that journey. Coming to the hardware, it uses the same Apple A11 Bionic chipset, and said to have 3GB of RAM.

However, the launch did not go fully to plan as Apple vice president Craig Federighi initially failed to unlock the device using Face ID.

As with the last generation of iPhones, the standard iPhone 8 is still limited to a single rear camera, while the 8 Plus and X sport dual 12-megapixel shooters in back.

The Wireless charging pad called the AirPower can charge iPhone, Watch and ear pods at the same time.

The base 64 GB iPhone X costs $49.91 a month. The iPhone X will be available for pre-order on October 27 and should arrive in stores on November 3.
