The iPhone X Is the Most Expensive Smartphone Apple's Ever Made

While Apple's ARKit is a big part of the company's AR strategy, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus have some upgrades that will make them more usable as AR companion tools.

The iPhone X is likely to be a move in a more radical design direction for Apple as they celebrate 10 years of iPhones. The home button found on previous iPhones is also gone, and users will instead tap the device to wake it up. The revamped App Switcher is accompanied by the new Control Center, so you can access both at the same time. During the unveil, Apple said there will be an "introductory offer" from carriers but didn't give any details on that.

No one will sleep with you because you have one of these phones, but some might not sleep with you because you don't.

Today's iPhone 8 and iPhone X event kicks off at 10AM Pacific (1PM Eastern) and can really only be viewed through Apple products, like their Safari browser or other Apple devices. Those phones, Apple said, will shoot pictures with better colors and less distortion, particularly in low-light settings.

While the Super Retina Display is impressive enough already, Apple has also thrown in its True Tone display technology, borrowed from the iPad Pro.

The prices are $699 for the 8, $799 for the Plus, and $999 for the X. The 8 and 8 Plus ship on September 22, and the X ships on November 3. More notably, Apple announced its new line of phones, which include the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus and the iPhone X. The phone number is the same as the iPhone's. That's especially so this year given that Apple is also expected to announce an anniversary edition with additional features and a higher price tag. The Plus variant boasts new cameras on its dual rear camera setup as well.

The world's most popular watch is now a mobile phone, too. You can watch along live through Apple's website here.

However, Apple is soon going to have 4K movies available through iTunes. Netflix and Amazon Prime 4K videos are coming to Apple TV as well. It ships on September 22. A version without 4K will cost less.

The new Apple Watch with LTE starts at $399 and will be available on September 22nd.

That is certainly the case with the iPhone and all of Apple's products.

The new iPhone could be more affordable than expected. It will require a data plan, which typically costs $5 or $10 a month.

The presumptive chart-topping iPhone X is purportedly powered by a six-core processor, making it one of the most powerful smartphones ever built.

Kiwis will still be able to buy the non-cellular version of the Apple Watch Series 3. The original Series 1, without Global Positioning System, sells for $249, down from $269.

The cellular connectivity comes via an electronic SIM card integrated right into the watch.

Apple officially unveiled its Apple TV 4K following the Apple Watch Series 3 reveal.
