Apple unveiled the latest iterations of iPhone at their futuristic Apple Park campus in Cupertino, Calif., Tuesday morning. To activate Siri you can either address it vocally, or press the side of the screen.
The phone's 5.8 inch edge-to-edge screen, with OLED super-retina display, means there's no longer room for a home button.
Both phones are also encased in glass and boast 12-megapixel cameras. Presumably, this is to thwart US laws that make it unlawful to force someone to reveal a password but OK to unlock a device using a biometric measure. The new GPU is also 30 percent faster than the A10 at peak, and provides the same performance as the A10 at half the power consumption.
Apple said face detection is more secure than fingerprints. There is also a flood illuminator that is designed to identify the users face in the dark.
iPhone 8/8 Plus: Also comes with the A11 Bionicprocessor.
With a price starting at $999 and a host of new features, the phone will be a big test for both Apple and consumers. Still, you have to pay for the convenience, as selling your piece on eBay or Craiglist remains the ultimate value squeeze in comparison.
eBay's "What it's worth" and "Quick sale" tools are excellent reference points for the average price you can get for your exact model, color and condition.
The standard iPhone 8 still gets one rear camera, while the iPhone 8 Plus gets two. "And so these are not for the rich". "Nothing has ever been more simple, natural and effortless", he said earlier.
Apple laid claim to the future of the smartphone on Tuesday with a 10th anniversary iPhone X, featuring facial recognition unlocking and other refinements, touting the device as the next generation of mobile computing. Plus, you'll also discover how to leverage Swift 3 to build apps for tvOS and watchOS.
Apple iPhone X will be priced upwards of Rs 89,000 in India.
The Apple building itself was considered to be Jobs' final product, and Cook spent a few minutes boasting about the design, energy-saving features and public spaces at the new campus, including a flagship Apple Store. It sets a new price threshold for any smartphone intended to appeal to a mass market. Schiller said the new front facing cameras will "revolutionize" selfies by adding portrait mode.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will hit shelves September 22.
Yes, the headphone jack is gone-likely for good-and while iPhone 8 preserves the button that seemingly does almost everything, iPhone X ditches the home button, too.
"For more than a decade, our intention has been to create an iPhone that is all display", Apple chief designerJony Ive said in a statement.
