The New Apple Watch Is Basically Also a Smartphone

The New Apple Watch Is Basically Also a Smartphone

Steve Jobs used to wow Apple fans and investors with his famous "one more thing" - a final announcement at the end of Apple events that would reveal a surprising new product or feature, like the iPod Shuffle and FaceTime.

Other expected highlights; Apple is also set to release a new version of Apple TV - one which will have the ability to play 4K video.

It features what they're calling Super Retina Display and is "all screen." iPhone X will also feature Face ID, which allows you to unlock your phone just by looking at it. The iPhone X is said to come with features like Face ID, a fancy Apple term for 3D face scanning and wireless charging.The iPhone X is also expected to be powered by Apple A11 processor, with four cores inside it (although there is talk of six cores too) and the iOS 11, which has some special software features related to the augmented reality.

As Vox reported, the launch "is also a flawless time to demonstrate the capabilities of the next version of Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 11, which has been available to developers in beta mode for some time now but which will come to consumers soon". The highly anticipated product will be available in silver, space grey, and gold.

Update: Along with a new Apple Watch and Apple TV, Apple's event brought news on a new game called Sky from Journey developer thegamecompany. Both prices are for the 64GB storage variants with prices for the 256GB models in tow.

Trump says U.S. is 'prepared' to deal with Irma
Pence said Trump, who was returning to the White House later Sunday, has been tracking the storm "24/7". Most stores including Walmarts and Publix supermarkets, had run out of bottled water on Wednesday.

4K has four times the number of pixels than high definition while HDR provides more realistic colours.

But that could all change, now that Apple's newest Watch has LTE built in. The Series 3 watch will cost $399.

However, iPhone 8 models are expected to cost in and around what the current iPhone 7 models cost.

Most smartwatches with cellular support are huge thanks to the need to pack in antennas and other necessary components, but the Series 3 will be the same size as the Series 2.

The iPhone X features a bezel-free, button-free design (much like Samsung's S8 and S8 Plus). After months of waiting and sorting through a myriad of rumors, techies can rest easy - the iPhone 8 is here, at long last.

Massive crane atop Miami high-rise collapses in Irma's winds
As the city of Miami said in its news release about the risk, "The crane's arm has to remain loose; it is not tied down". According to reports from city officials, the crane fell on Biscayne Boulevard, located in the heart of downtown Miami .

The iPhone X has no tactile home button.

Apple CEO Tim Cook discusses features of the new iPhone 8. The new SF comes out next week, on September 19.

All those features have been available on other smartphones that sold for less than $1,000, but Apple's sense of design and marketing flair has a way of making them seem irresistible - and worth the extra expense.

Since the original watch's debut in April 2015, Apple has been trying to enable more stand-alone features. Netflix and Amazon Prime 4K videos are coming to Apple TV as well.

In addition to supporting wireless charging, the iPhone 8 devices are faster, sturdier and have an improved camera.

Support for content in 4K resolution has been available in TV sets for quite some time, but most households haven't had a 4K set. The Apple TV interface has not exactly been butter smooth however this seems to be taken care of by the new layout.
