IPhone X First Look: About Face

IPhone X First Look: About Face

Today, Apple announced a flurry of new products, including a new iteration of Apple WATCH and three new iPhones, during a product presentation in Cupertino, California. FaceID also works with Apple Pay, letting you use your face to buy your shopping.

Phil Schiller, Apple's SVP of worldwide marketing, called it "the future of how we unlock our smartphones and protect our sensitive information".

Apple held a Tuesday keynote event for the newest iteration of the iPhone. A new feature called portrait lighting will allow users to select lighting effects in portrait mode. The new iPhones will be available in 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch inch screen sizes.

The Apple Watch Series 3 will start from $459 for the 38mm aluminium GPS version and $499 for the 42mm. Pre-orders for both variants begin on September 15, and release date is September 22. iOS 11, the latest version of the mobile software powering the iPhones, will be available to download on September 19.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus look pretty much the same as their predecessors, but they have a new back cover that's coated in glass and gives them a somewhat fresher look. And the home button?

They've built the phone antenna straight into the interface, and designed a new micro sim-card.

Last but not least, it's also turned its hand to telly sets, and is bringing out a 4K high definition Apple TV.

The 8 will retail starting at $699 while the Plus will go for $799.

As well as being used to unlock the device, Face ID technology can also be used to create Animoji - animated emoji controlled by the user's face.

There is also a quad-LED True Tone flash with a supposedly twice the uniformity of light. To close an app, simply swipe up on the screen and throw it away. The new line of iPhones also introduces the A11 bionic chip, featuring a 64-bit design, six-core CPU. The iPhone X boasts what Apple calls a Super Retina display using OLED display technology for richer colors and sharper images. Until Freedom confirms that its network supports the new iPhone models, however, Band 66 support is merely a bonus feature, as not all phones that feature Band 66 LTE are supported by Freedom's network. At launch, Apple is selling two charging mats from Belkin and mophie. You can preorder the handset on October 27th with shipping planned to starts on November 3rd.
