Ten years after the release of the groundbreaking iPhone 2G, Apple has created another innovative phone. Steve Jobs may be gone, but his creative essence was certainly present in the newly erected Steve Jobs Theatre, located on Apple’s 1 Loop campus, as the new devices were announced. Check out everything the Cupertino-based tech juggernaut announced in this year’s Keynote, below.
Apple Watch Series 3— With Service
The series 3 Apple Watch debuted as predicted. The Apple Watch is now the most popular watch in the world, beating out Rolex and even Fossil. The upgraded wrist piece now has cellular service built-in, so you can go for a run and not have to worry about a phone weighing you down. It’s set to drop on September 22 with the cellular-equipped version priced at $399, and the regular version going for $329.
Apple TV, But Crisper
“Apple TV and Chill” may soon be better than “Netflix and Chill.” The Apple TV is now equipped with 4k and an upgraded CPU that’s twice as fast as the older model. If purchased, it will automatically upgrade all of your purchased movies to 4k, free of charge. Favorite team playing on ESPN? Stream it on your Apple TV. And the same goes for live news. Sadly, you’ll probably still lose your remote. Sorry, guys.
The iPhone 8 has arrived. Backed by glass, Apple still claims that its extremely durable with a reinforced display. Similar to the S additions, Apple made minor upgrades to make things a bit snappier with a clearer screen. At launch there will be three colors, Black, White and a Golden hue. The camera will now have faster autofocus and will work better in low light. Your selfie game can officially be elevated with what is, basically, a camera with a type of built-in photo shop that kicks in when in the new portrait mode. And as expected, the glass back allows wireless Qi charging. Available everywhere September 22.
And one more thing… iPhone X
You thought that was it? Introducing iPhone X. The edge-to-edge screen has arrived and it’s called the super retina display. Since the home button is gone, a high-tech camera will scan your face by way of Face iD and unlock. Decided to grow a beard? That’s fine— Face iD can tell and will adapt to your face over time. Preorders begin in late October with a starting price of $999. It’s the most advanced iPhone ever.
