Apple launched three iPhones including iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus at an event on Apple's new campus, at the Steve Jobs Theater here.

The Mac and the iPad maker has sold over 1.2 billion iPhones till date. The iPhone X does not have a physical button below the display, something like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus continue to have. Apple says this is extremely accurate, and the chances of someone bypassing it are significantly lesser than the fingerprint method. We don't know yet how sturdy it will be and it is so far only going to be in two colors: space grey and silver.

It features a more advanced 12MP camera with an improved sensor and deeper pixels. Instead, you can take out what is essentially an interest-free loan via Apple's upgrade program and pay off the device in monthly installments.

It has a new A11 Bionic chip with four efficiency cores and two performance cores. But Apple, with its massive devoted fan base, adds a new level of mainstream appeal.

Apple is expected to unveil a redesigned iPhone on Tuesday at a product event scheduled at 10 a.m. PDT at its new headquarters in Cupertino, California, according to multiple reports.

Craig Federighi, was giving a demonstration on the device's Face ID function and explained to the audience that unlocking the phone "was as easy as looking at it and swiping up".

Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) features a full LTE cellular radio that switches seamlessly to cellular when it is away from iPhone. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus come with what Apple has described as the most durable smartphone glass.

Where in the past Apple heavily touted its smartwatch as a gadget for the fitness-minded, Tuesday's presentation made an additional pitch for more broad uses, like errands or general health monitoring. If you're a company with lots of Apple hardware, setting up an Apple TV in your conference rooms can be a cheaper alternative than using a Mac mini or PC. The iPhone X (Ten) was also announced by the company.

"It is exciting but I'm not fully convinced", Tarun Pathak, Associate Director, Counterpoint Research tells BGR India.

It's getting progressively troublesome - notwithstanding for Apple, with its better store network administration and capacity than representing the deciding moment providers - to source the correct parts in the fundamental amounts. It comes with dual-image OIS quad-LED TrueTone flash. While it is superbly designed, it is also slightly unconvincing, and creepy. Some 1.2 billion have been sold in that time. For this, the iPhone X uses depth sensing cameras which are installed above the OLED screen on the phone.

The watch with cellular connectivity will be available in nine countries September 22 starting at US$399 (RM1,680), Apple said.

Animoji is the phone's 3D emojis that can reflect the miniscule details of an expression.
