Share

The Apple Store is offline for Apple's iPhone X event, the company is in the process of announcing their new iPhones.

Apple's new high-end phone, expected to be called the iPhone X, could silence critics who say the company has lost its innovation edge. The handset is expected to be powered by trhe new Apple A11 processor and it will come with 3GB of RAM.

Apple's implementation will probably be more secure than the facial recognition on many Android phones. The highly anticipated product will be available in silver, space grey, and gold.

A new Apple Watch and Apple TV streaming box could also be among the new products showcased by the technology giant. Both prices are for the 64GB storage variants with prices for the 256GB models in tow. However, there's not a lot of video in 4K and HDR yet, nor are there many TVs that can display it. Apple TV doesn't have its own display and needs to be connected to a TV.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus also got upgraded 12MP cameras. Alongside these gadgets, Apple Watch and Apple TV are also scheduled for updates.

Gene Munster, an analyst with Loup Ventures, believes sales of the watch could double or even triple because of the new connectivity. But Apple throws us a curve ball from time to time, and we got one Tuesday.

And they're not actually saying "X" they're calling it iPhone 10 - you don't pronounce the Roman numeral.

The new cellular model, called Series 3, will start at $399. "Rivals will be watching how quickly Apple can meet demand for the iPhone X and begin to build margins on a new design with new components". Rumour has it that the flagship iPhone 8 will start from $850, which is around N305,711. The new watch goes up for order on September 15th and hits stores on September 22nd.

Ted Cruz responds to liking porn video with trademark wit
However, it is not confirmed if it was Ted Cruz himself who liked the post, or if his account was being used by someone else. It was an accident, you guys! Cruz hadn't addressed the issue on his Twitter account as of early Tuesday morning.

Ubisoft Reflections' surprise PC shooter Atomega releases next week
However, there is a tad bit of surprisingly tragic backstory that can be gleamed from Ubisoft's announcement . Another mass-focused shooter was recently announced as coming to the Nintendo Switch - Morphies Law .

Africa summit postponed to unknown date
The Foreign Ministry said that despite the postponement, "Israel will continue its growing efforts in Africa as it has done in recent years".

Apple initially marketed the Watch as a luxury item, but it has focused more on health and fitness recently.

The most notable ARKit announcement was that Apple will be bringing face-tracking support to the AR platform on iPhone X, allowing dev to gain access to front color and depth images from the cameras while tracking face position and a number of expressions in real-time.

The iPhone X features wireless charging, an infrared camera and special hardware for facial recognition, which will replace the fingerprint sensor for unlocking the phone.

Going by Apple's traditional iPhone release formula, the brand spanking new iPhones should go on sale a week after the model has been revealed to us.

Apple's new premium device - pronounced 10, not "x" - will have one version that will cost more than $2000.

All those features have been available on other smartphones that sold for less than $1,000, but Apple's sense of design and marketing flair has a way of making them seem irresistible - and worth the extra expense.

Apple TV will be able to show Internet programming in 4K-just like Roku and Amazon Fire TV. One without cellular goes for $329, down from $369 for the comparable model now.
