Apple Watch Series 3 makes official debut with built-in cellular connectivity

The iPhone X features a full screen display, for the first time in Apple's history.

As expected, Apple is also ditching the home button on this model. But when he held up the phone to his face, the software did not recognize it, prompting Federighi to use the device's passcode instead.

Speaking about the new iPhone, Jony Ive, Apple's chief design officer said: "For more than a decade, our intention has been to create an iPhone that is all display". To achieve an nearly bezel-less design, Apple has got rid of the Home button.

Here's the catch: The X starts at $999, and it won't be available until November.

The iPhone 8 has a 12-megapixel back camera with f/1.8 aperture, while the iPhone 8 Plus has 12-megapixel wide-angle (ƒ/1.8 aperture) and telephoto (ƒ/2.8) cameras.

Unlike the iPhone 7, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will support wireless charging capabilities when using separately-sold charging pads from Belkin and mophie. Given the fierce competition in the wireless industry lately, I assumed that all the carriers would come out the gate hard with pricing offers, like free service for two years if you bought a new iPhone and Apple Watch on an Equipment Installment Plan.

And while the headphone jack remains MIA, Cupertino has stuck with the Lightning port, as opposed to making the switch to USB-C.

The new iPhone's camera will also be upgraded. While Tim Cook may have introduced the iPhone X by saying "one more thing", but it was actually the device everyone was waiting for.

Here's a comparison of the upcoming iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus against last year's iPhone 7.

The iPhone X will be available in Space Grey and Silver.

According to Apple, the chances of someone else being able to unlock your iPhone X using Face ID is about one in a million, which is a dramatic improvement over Touch ID, which Apple claims has a false positive rating of one in 50,000.

iPhone 8 and 8 PlusThey've made a splash. The pre-orders for the smartphone will start on October 27 across 55 countries including India.

This facial recognition technology has also allowed Apple to make emoji's more interactive as the iPhone X now includes something called Animoji.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be up for pre-order in the USA and few other countries, including India, starting September 15.

The biggest addition to the Apple Watch Series 3 is built-in cellular connectivity. In a statement, Apple called its unveiling a "sneak peek", suggesting more details will be announced in the future. Apples's new iOS 11 will be available for download on both the devices from September 19.

On Tuesday, Apple also revealed the Apple Watch Series 3, which is cellular-enabled.
