While the iPhone 8 has been linked with many names, including iPhone Edition and iPhone Pro, the latest leak suggests that the smartphone will be dubbed iPhone X to mark the 10th anniversary of the series. Also, the new office will go fully function from today on 12th September 2017. And both times, the leaks were completely Apple's doing.
The new handset will be released by Apple CEO Tim Cook at an event in California. As with every year, this year too, you can view the event via the HTTP Live Streaming, or HLS technology. Install the VLC media player, which you can download for free here, then point it towards this link; it is the address the Apple TV uses to tune into Apple's live events.
It looks like the new iPhone X could be in short supply at launch and some of the new color options may not be available right away.
On Tuesday, the company will be unveiling various new products, including new iPhones, a new iOS systems, new Apple watches and slightly revised AirPods, according to published reports. "By now, we all know that the next-gen device we've unofficially dubbed the iPhone 8 will actually be called the iPhone X", BGR notes. The tweet also reveals the price of all three variants with base model priced at $999 and top end model priced at $1199.
Forbes.com reported the phones will have an enlarged, elongated 5.8-inch display surrounded by reduced black bezels.
Facial recognition would also replace Touch ID, Apple's biometric fingerprint authentication technology.
"If the demo disappoints...if there really isn't any great, sexy new application the market gets excited about, there is a very strong potential here that Apple could take the whole market down", he said.
