Apple unveils iPhone X

Sky Mobile has launched its pre-registration page for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus and will start taking orders on Friday.

Vodafone will be stocking both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

I don't want to focus too much on making a connection that might not exist at all, but it seems that, at its core, the iPhone X is a similar achievement and not just a nod to the past.

By the time you actually get to hold one, the iPhone X is in danger of feeling anti-climactic.

If you're interested in an upgrade from your aging iPhone 5 or 6, but the $999 iPhone X is a little pricey, it's the perfect time to take a look at some of the slightly older iPhones that Apple sells. For example, getting to the home screen requires a swipe up the middle of the screen. Can you think of anything else? The solution was capacitive touch display, now a commonplace from smartphones to personal computers. Michael Levine, vice president of marketing at digital experience enabler Photon, told Retail Dive via e-mail that as biometrics technology advances, touch-based biometrics are becoming outdated. But these are not super-intuitive gestures, particularly for people for whom the home button functions are second nature. "Now unlocking it is as easy as looking at it and swiping up..."

That said, looks aren't everything.

The iPhone X costs twice what the original iPhone did.

Its software features do feel ahead of the curve, though - particularly when it comes to facial recognition.

Barcelona assume liderança à boleia de Lionel Messi
O uruguaio Luis Suárez, após defender a seleção uruguaia, ainda não retornou aos treinos, assim como o brasileiro Paulinho. O Barcelona tinha as melhores chances e ficava mais perto de aumentar o placar do que de sofrer o primeiro gol.

Apple is touting the iPhone X as nothing short of "the future". When you use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers.

Further, the iPhone X supports a front-facing portrait mode, using which selfie buffs can click photographs with the same kind of blurred background made available by the regular portrait mode.

According to an unnamed retailer speaking to the United Daily News, there is generally a price difference of NT$2,500 to NT$2,800 for iPhones sold in Taiwan versus those sold in the U.S.

And then there was one more thing. The new iPhone 8 and 8 plus resemble the iPhone 7 line but have a glass back that allows for wireless charging.

Overall, the promise laid out by this phone - plus a promise of a couple of extra hours of battery life - balances out a less-than-striking visual first impression.

With the introduction of LTE to the Apple Watch Series 3, and the reduced price of the Series 1, Tuesday's announcements could add 10M incremental Apple Watch units in 2018, implying Apple Watch sales of 26M units in FY18.

Apple's big September event was yesterday, which means two things: the company introduced new iPhones and cut the prices of its older models.
