As expected, Apple announced new devices during a special event at its new headquarters. Along with the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, the company unveiled the iPhone X (pronounced "ten," not "ex").
The handset marks the 10th anniversary of the very first iPhone in 2007, and makes some bold design choices, like removing that home button and making your face the key to unlocking the phone. (The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus keep their home buttons.)
At 5.8 inches, the X's display is actually larger than the iPhone 7 Plus' display. It occupies the entire front surface of the device except for a small slither at the top that houses the front-facing camera, some other hardware, and tiny, tiny bezels on the sides.
As expected, the Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus come with improved design, camera and performance. For design, the company has brought back the glass back, which is coupled with aerospace-grade aluminium bezel. According to Apple, the iPhone 8 delivers same battery life as the iPhone 7. The smartphone is claimed to deliver up to 12 hours back up on internet use.
The upgrade, however, is the addition of the Qi wireless charging. The iPhone 8 also supports fast charging, which is claimed to achieve 50% charge in 30 minutes. Actually, the 3 new handsets will be able to be joined with a new wireless charging accessory based on the Qi standard – the most popular among three main industry specifications.
The 4.7-inch iPhone 8 goes on sale Friday, September 22 for $699 for 64GB, with a 256GB option too. And the 5.5-inch 8s Plus will start at $799 for 64GB, with a 256GB option. You can preorder these phones on Friday, September 15. The $1,000 iPhone X (the 256GB model costs $1,150) won't be available until November.
