Apple has unveiled the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, Apple Watch Series 3, and Apple TV 4K.
(CCM) — Apple's iPhone X may have grabbed most of the attention, but the company also unveiled two more iPhones, a beefed up Apple TV, and a new version of Apple Watch in Cupertino yesterday.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are evolutions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and they look very similar to their predecessors. But the phones feature a new glass and aluminum design, upgraded 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch "Retina HD" displays, wireless charging, and Apple's A11 Bionic processor which has been optimized for augmented reality. Available in space gray, silver, and gold, they are available to order from September 15, 2017 and will launch on September 22, 2017 priced from $699.
The Apple Watch Series 3 comes in two versions, one of which includes cellular connectivity. This allows users to make calls and receive texts during fitness activities, such as running or swimming, without the need to carry a phone. Both have a new barometric altimeter that measures relative elevation, a 70% faster dual-core processor and a new wireless chip. They will be available to order on September 15, 2017 and in stores on September 22, 2017, priced from $399 (cellular version) and $329 (non-cellular version).
The Apple TV 4K now supports 4K content and High Dynamic Range (HDR), allowing users to watch the growing selection of 4K HDR movies on iTunes. The device will also offer 4K HDR content from Netflix and Amazon Prime Video when it is available. The Apple TV 4K starts at $179 for the 32 GB version and $199 for the 64 GB version. They will be available to order on September 15, 2017 and will launch on September 22, 2017.
