Apple Inc. Has a Tough iPhone Problem to Solve in 2018

Apple Inc. Has a Tough iPhone Problem to Solve in 2018”

The Apple senior management took the stage one at a time to show all the latest innovations Apple has been working on and managed to wow the audiences in attendance with the launch of the new Apple smart watch, Apple TV, the iPhone 8 and a special $1000 iPhone X. Apple is offering the two iPhone 8 models in three colours: silver, space gray, and a new gold colour. Both Models featuring a 70 percent faster dual-core processor and new wireless chip.

Apple Park includes 2.8 million-sq.ft. of space and features the world's largest panels of curved glass.

Apple Inc has rolled out its much-anticipated iPhone X, a redesigned product of glass and stainless steel with an edge-to-edge display. It's got a resolution of 2436×1125 with a pixel density of 458 ppi, which Apple calls as Super Retina.

Apple Watch Serries 3 will be available in market from 22 September while Pre-order are open from 15 September.

The iPhone 8 comes with the similar design as that of the iPhone 7. 4K video recording and stereo speakers round up this part of the phone's features. The two 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variants are decked with retina displays, A11 bionic chip for faster performance, and an Apple designed GPU that will accelerate graphics and games. The glass finish is made using a seven-layer color process for precise hue and opacity, delivering a rich depth of color with a color-matched aerospace-grade aluminum bezel, and is water and dust resistant. The A11 Bionic should wipe the floor with the A10 Fusion.

The cameras on iPhone 8 Plus are custom tuned for the ultimate AR experience. Even the cameras are enhanced wherein both the lenses now have OIS. The chip also comes with machine learning capability and core support for the Augmented reality. The mat would be available from next year.

iPhone X is equipped with TrueDepth camera-and-sensor system to enable users to unlock it via a its new facial recognition feature called FaceID. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available across the country from September 29 via offline and online retail stores.

Apple will take preorders for the iPhone X starting 27th October, and the phones ship 3rd November. iPhone X starts at $999 for 64GB of storage (the highest starting price of any iPhone to date), with a 256GB upgrade.

Customers will be able to order iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus beginning Friday, September 15, with availability beginning Friday, September 22, in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, UAE, the United Kingdom, the US and US Virgin Islands. But perhaps the more important story is what's under the hood: semiconductor technology that could keep Apple ahead of rivals and force people with older phones to upgrade.

While earlier contemplations involved that the new feature will only be built into the iPhone line up, Apple while launching the phones revealed that the AirPower mat can charge the iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods, all at once.
