Indeed, there was something about yesterday’s keynote that felt different than most of Apple’s events.
“Options to consider include IQE, whose shares have rocketed this year amid speculation that its semiconductor wafers, which are made of gallium arsenide and gallium nitride rather than the more traditional silicon, will be a key enabler of the new iPhone’s 3D-tracking technology”, he said.

Apple’s keynote was meant to blow people out of their seats with a bevy of products and their debut.
Samsung stands to take cut from the OLED display screens – which do away with traditional LCD backlight technology – it is supplying for the new phone. Unsurprisingly, Apple has elected to keep the headphone jack off of the new devices in favor of several other upgrades.
The removal of the home button also prompted some concern with Brandt Reutimann, a senior computer science student, who said “the user experience is, I think, better” with a physical button on the phone. Thanks to a bunch of sensors and cameras in that little notch at the top of the screen, unlocking your phone is now as simple as looking at it.
A11 BionicInside the phone you will find the A11 Bionic, the most powerful and smartest chip ever in a smartphone, features a six-core CPU design with two performance cores that are 25 percent faster and four efficiency cores that are 70 percent faster than the A10 Fusion. Welcome to the future, everybody!
The iPhone will set customers back £999 for the basic model, the iPhone 8 Plus is priced at £799, and iPhone 8 costs £699. Indeed, the only device that I’d expect to get a “new” LCD is a potential refresh of the iPhone SE. The design is very similar to the 7 and 7 Plus.
There are many Android cellphones, often from Asia, that cost substantially less than a new Galaxy or iPhone. You’ll also need to decide whether you want the 38mm case or the 42mm case.
In the last generation of the Apple flagship, the iPhone 7 Plus delivered outstanding camera functionality, and was seen as the premium device in the range for this reason.
On the other hand, the OLED display is much harder to manufacture than the LCDs on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and Apple has only a single supplier for the OLED displays used in the iPhone X – bitter rival Samsung (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF).
It’s only going to come in two colours: silver or space grey. One without cellular goes for $329, down from $369 for the comparable model now. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available for pre-order starting September 15.
United Kingdom mobile carrier EE has announced that they will be the exclusive partner with Apple for the LTE Apple Watch Series 3 at launch.
The latest phones feature Apple’s first proprietary graphics processor, which provides more speed, improved cameras and some features for augmented reality apps. The new watch comes out September 22. The fancy ceramic model now comes in gray but the rose gold aluminum model has been phased out.
