To make Face ID that secure, private and still speedy enough to use quickly, Apple says it never stores your face scans in the cloud, but rather on an encrypted part of your phone. The iPhone X is offering something different: the ability to unlock by scanning and recognizing your face. The new iPhone X - pronounced like the number 10 - will have a screen with higher resolution. The screen measures 5.8-inches diagonally. Apple calls it a Super Retina Display.
Yep, as per most predictions, the new 10th-anniversary model has no home button. Jan Dawson at Jackdaw Research and Julie Ask of Forrester Research break down what you can expect from the company's new flagship devices. It uses small flood light to work in the dark. Apple's hoping you'll use the brand-new Face ID - where you simply look at your phone to be logged in automatically. But those chances drop to 1 in a million with face detection.
The new phone, which is coming November 3, will also permit animated emojis that mirror your facial movements and promises two more hours of battery life than what's in the current iPhone 7. Schiller said the new front facing cameras will "revolutionize" selfies by adding portrait mode.
On Tuesday, Apple unveiled new smartwatches, an Apple TV and the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus at a press event.
Despite both shooting in 12MP, the iPhone X has a dual camera on the rear of the device, which offers a better depth-of-field when compared to the S8's single camera.
On the surface, the devices look similar to the iPhone 7. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus offer those same colors as well as gold.
The A11 Bionic chip can handle AR functions thrown at it such as world tracking, scene recognition and 60fps graphics. You'll find these changes in the new iTunes: ● Apps: Looking for your past iOS app downloads? Apple also announced it will launch its AirPower wireless charging pad for iPhones, Apple Watch and AirPods beginning next year.
The iPhone X costs twice what the original iPhone did.
The iPhone X, like the 8 and 8 Plus, will have wireless charging. If you want the larger model, it starts at $429. Apple Watch Series 3 is a water-resistant device you can also wear it even in swimming. A new model will still require a companion iPhone, but comes with cellular access.
You can answer calls, receive text messages, talk to Siri, check maps and use third-party apps over cellular connections. The watch also features Global Positioning System and you can use Maps for directions, which automatically turns on location when away from iPhone. The Apple Watch Series 3 will ship with an aluminium case in a wide variety of bands including a new Space Gray band, a new sports loop band. It's launching an Apple Heart Study later this year that will be able to detect early signs of atrial fibrillation, one of the leading causes of stroke. It works with all four major carriers in the US, though Apple did not mention details on plan pricing. The watch will be available September 22. But there's not a lot of video in 4K and HDR yet, nor are there many TVs that can display it. Apple TV doesn't have its own display and needs to be connected to a TV. It will also launch on September 22. First time on Apple Watch, Apple's voice assistant Siri has become smarter and can talk.
The event opened with a short inspirational video with featured audio by late Apple founder Steve Jobs.
"Not a day that goes by that we don't think about him", Cook said.
