Apple revealed some of the most highly anticipated iPhones yet at its big event Tuesday. The high-end model features a completely new look, with a screen that stretches from edge to edge, and gets rid of the home button that's been on every other iPhone since 2007. Apple's also making a big push into "augmented reality," where images from apps are superimposed over live video captured by the camera.
As anticipated, a new iPhone X features a souped-up display and design and prominently features facial recognition technology. With no home button, the phone wakes up with a tap, and Siri can be activated with a larger side button. To unlock the phone, users can activate Face ID, which identifies users with a one-in-a-million chance of mistakes.
Apple also introduced the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus with aerospace-grade materials, a better display and speakers, and super-strong glass exterior reinforced with steel. New sensors in a dual camera, alongside machine learning, will help these phones take photos and videos with less noise, Schiller said, especially in the Plus model. The phones have 3-D touch technology and new stereo speakers that are 25 percent louder.
The new Apple Watch, Series 3, has cellular built in. The new watch will also allow streaming for millions of songs, as it is more power-efficient, has a dual-core processor and supports speaking from Siri.
The new Apple TV 4K supports sharper resolution TV shows and movies and Apple is bringing live sports and news to the TV. Apple also stated that they are working with Hollywood studios and streaming services like Netflix to get sharper-resolution content.
