The company presented the much-hyped, 10th anniversary edition smartphone - the "X" is pronounced "ten" - along with an iPhone 8 and its big sister, the iPhone 8 Plus at the Steve Jobs Theater at its Cupertino campus.
Apple also launched a new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which are more conventional upgrades to the existing iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. While setting up the phone, you will need to identify your face to the phone, and using artificial intelligence, these depth sensing cameras will supposedly detect it's you even if you grow a beard or wear a hat.
Through a new feature on iPhone X, FaceID will replace the biometric TouchID fingerprint reader. It's water and dust resistant. It is also offering an OLED display for the very first time, calling it the Super Retina Display.
The small bar incorporates a flood illuminator, which detects the face, and a dot projector that puts out 30,000 dots and creates a mathematical model of the face. With Face ID, that may no longer be the case.
Among the three iPhones, iPhone X stole the spot light with its bezel-less display and FaceID. But those chances drop to 1 in a million with face detection. There are a few things that the reveal confirmed what we learned from the various leaks. For example, you'll be able to give your friends side-eye as a unicorn. Apple will also sell GPS-only models for $329 (38mm) and $359 (42mm).
As far as cameras are concerned, the iPhone X's rear camera features a 12-megapixel sensor, with dual-lenses at f1.8 and f2.4 apertures.
Apple just announced that the next iPhones - the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X - will both support Qi wireless charging. They're faster, sturdier and better at snapping photos than the previous iPhone. Last year, Apple's revenue declined when many consumers rejected the iPhone 7 as being too similar to the iPhone 6.
That is a fairly pessimistic assessment of the iPhone's most-talked about feature already. You can pre-order iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus on Sep. And lo! did the floodgates open to a swathe of third-party wireless charging pads.
Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, had earlier taken to the stage to talk about the X, explaining the lack of home button, how you can 'wake' the phone, Siri's functions. and, of course, facial recognition. Optical image stabilization is also coming to the iPhone 8, which will help reduce motion when you shoot videos.
The 4K version of Apple TV will cost $179 and ships on Sept. 22.
I've owned an Apple Watch since its release in 2015. You can even remove the roof and watch all the Apple engineers working inside. But the showstopper was a premium device called iPhone X, with a starting price that would have once seemed laughable for a phone: $999.
The watch will cost $329 without cellular, and $399 with cellular. Tim Cook claims it just overtook Rolex as the top-selling watch in the world.
The focus now on retail. Apple is calling it FaceID.
Apple has as tipped, removed the home button. what you now need to learn is how to do an upward swipe from the bottom of the phone. The 64GB model of the iPhone 8 will be available in India at Rs 64,000, while the 256GB variant will cost Rs 77,000.
