Apple iPhones finally get wireless charging, but no 'charging mat' this year

6 Features That Finally Make the New Apple Watch Worth It

6 Features That Finally Make the New Apple Watch Worth It

We've put together a list of iPhone 8 pre-order tips to help you prepare. They're faster, sturdier and better at snapping photos and features wireless charging.

Moreover, the $1,000 price tag is insane for a smartphone. Apple may have tried to soften the blow by calling it $999 (£999 and AU$1,579), but it's still a thousand-dollar phone. Wireless charging and Face ID are also some of the new prominent features of the phone. Since the newly launched iPhones are not really affordable, you can opt for these ones instead. It'll be replaced with a system of taps, swipes and, facial recognition. The new devices will surely perform a little better and you won't even notice the difference with your bare eyes. The iPhone X is also dust and water resistant, and promises two more hours of battery life than what's in the current iPhone 7.

However, if you're a new user who wishes to make a switch, iPhone 8 is a welcome addition.

"These units feature a traditional Retina HD display, with the 8 sporting a 4.7" inch screen and the 8 Plus a 5.5" one. Speakers will be louder and offer deeper bass. The iPhone X comes in two options - 64GB - which will come with a hefty price of Rs 89,000, while the 256GB model will cost Rs 102,000.

The new iPhone's front and back glass will be framed by "surgical-grade" stainless steel around the edges.

If you were following a live blog during Apple's presentation, or if you happened to miss the live presentation entirely, Apple a short while ago began uploading numerous promo videos it debuted during today's event to YouTube.

Coming to iPhone X, it has surely got its gimmicks and good looks. In Canada, the new phone is nearly $100 (€83.50) more expensive than in the US. The feature will require a $5 or $10 data add-on to an existing phone plan.

The Series 3 cost will begin at $399 with cellular functions or $329 without cell service.

This time around, the Apple Watch Series 3 comes with an altimeter, which is great for measuring the elevation gain for climbers. Well, I doubt that your iPhone 6s Plus or iPhone 7 has become noticeably slower.

A new version of the Apple TV streaming device will be able to show video with sharper "4K" resolution and a color-improvement technology called high-dynamic range.

For now, these new features may feel more like gimmicks, but if Apple opens up its Face ID technology to outside developers the possibilities could be endless.

Introducing a "bezel free" OLED display, facial recognition and an enhanced camera, it's also the most expensive model yet.

Apple TV with 4K begins at $179 and will be available on September 21. It ships on September 22. The device is set to cost more than €400 in Ireland when it launches later this month, with Apple retaining the Apple Watch 2 and Apple Watch 1 at lower price points.
