Apple unveiled new smartphones Tuesday – the iPhone X and iPhone 8 – as well as the Series 3 Apple Watch and the Apple TV 4K.
Launched at a hefty price tag of $999, the “X, which will be in stores in November comes with the most sophisticated technology ever developed, Apple touts on its website.
According to the computer company, a tiny space houses Face ID, including the cameras and sensors that enable the feature.
Machine learning lets Face ID adapt to physical changes in your appearance over time.
Face ID is billed as so secure you can use it with Apple Pay. And check out with just a glance.
In short, your face is now your password to unlock and authenticate, Apple says.
It’s all made possible by the TrueDepth camera that projects and analyzes more than 30,000 invisible dots to create a precise depth map of your face.
Familiar gestures make navigation natural and intuitive. Instead of pressing a button, a single swipe takes you home from anywhere.
The iPhone X display has rounded corners that follow a curved design, and these corners are within a screen that measures 5.85 inches diagonally.
The smartphone comes with durable glass front and back, surgical‑grade stainless steel, wireless charging and is water and dust resistance.
The entry level new iPhone 8 will start at $699 for a 64GB storage model.
The Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular gives you the freedom to go with just your watch, Apple says on its website. You can make calls and send texts with just your watch, stream 40 million songs right from your wrist, or track a casual hike, an intense ride, and everything in between.
