Apple iPhones finally get wireless charging, but no 'charging mat' this year

The iPhone 8 features a 12 megapixel rear camera with what Apple calls, "a larger and faster sensor", while the iPhone 8 Plus features two 12 megapixel cameras.

"That's what's going to keep Apple, Apple, is if we keep us, us".

One tweeted the infamous US Office CPR scene to refer to the inevitable hassle of using another person's iPhone with the face recognition feature.

The waiting paid off as Philip Schiller came out to talk about the new phones: iPhone 8 and 8-plus. ("X" is pronounced like the number 10, not the letter X.) It loses the home button, which revolutionized smartphones when it launched; offers an edge-to-edge screen; and will use facial recognition to unlock the phone. "The ultimate expression of Apple Watch", he said. As expected, Apple upgraded its existing iPhone 7 with internal improvements, including wireless charging and faster processors. For now, Apple recommends customers check out wireless charging solutions from Belkin and Mophie.

The most popular topic on social media on Tuesday was the big Apple "event" in California. Apple says an untethered watch was always part of the long-term plan. Additionally, Apple has its own AirPower charging mat coming in 2018.

However, if you have an "evil twin", Apple admitted that they might be able to fool Face ID and get into your iPhone X and all its secrets.

In the Steve Jobs Theatre, Cook told the audience of 1000 the iPhone X "will set the path for technology for the next decade".

Apple is releasing a super-premium iPhone with a super-premium price tag, starting at $999.

To be fair, Apple is including higher storage capacity in the entry level versions of its new iPhones. The battery will also last two more hours than the iPhone 7.

With the help of LTE connectivity, you can make and receive calls directly from the Apple Watch Series 3 itself. Users can send Animoji photos or videos.

The iPhone X trades out TouchID for FaceID. At the iPhone keynote, the company revealed the new charging case for the AirPods wireless earphones that will support wireless charging too. It also has a new A10X chip, which is more than twice as fast as the previous version.

With an update announced, now, users can get a new version of the Apple TV that enables "4K" resolution video watching experience.

iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7: Should You Upgrade?

The iPhone X will go on sale in India from November 3, the same day when it will be available in global markets.The pre order for iPhone 8, 8 Plus will begin from September 15. Further, Apple's other products revenue, which combines sales of Apple TV, Apple Watch, Beats Products, iPod, and Apple-branded and third-party accessories, represents just 6% of Apple's overall revenue.

Next time you look at your iPhone X, the same dots are mapped onto your face and compared to the stored mathematical model.
