Share

At their press conference yesterday, Apple officially announced the launch of the latest iPhone X, as well as iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which will be available for preorder from September 15th, 3.01pm (iPhone 8 and 8Plus) and September 27th, 3.01pm (iPhone X) from Apple Singapore's online store.

Additionally, T-Mobile will give you up to $300 off (via 24 monthly bill credits) on a new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone X when you trade in an iPhone 6 or newer and buy your new phone on EIP.

The new Apple Watch is slightly thicker than the last version, but the difference is so minimal that you'd hardly notice.

The Series 3 also features a new W2 chip that is used for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. During the Apple Keynote, Apple mentioned all the things the new watch can do, including making calls and track your fitness regime.

Worse, none of the other big four carriers have suggested that they'll slow speeds on the LTE Apple Watch.

As for charging times, Apple claims that the Watch Series 3 will charge to 80 percent in 1.5 hours and a full charge will take two hours. With the iPhone X not being released until November (an eternity), the popularity of its less-expensive siblings should prove high. They each have True Tone technology which adjusts the warmth of the screen to the ambient lighting.

Technically, the launch date is exactly seven days away, but either demand is too strong or supply too weak for Cupertino to commit to September 22 deliveries. With Apple TV 4K, viewers can enjoy a wide selection of 4K HDR movies on iTunes and other popular video services. To go with the new Apple TV 4K, Apple said that the iTunes Store will also be selling movies and TV shows in 4K and HDR for the same price as HD content.

Apple Watch Series 3 adds built-in cellular to the world's number one watch. The EMIs for the 256GB variant will start from Rs 2,632 per month. The non-cellular model starts at $329, while a cellular enabled model will start at $399. The watchOS 4 will come with new Siri features, a set of new watch faces, and some improved fitness tracking capabilities.

Those who aren't fortunate enough to be able to afford the latest products can update their software to iOS 11 on September 19.

Sky has said that it will also be stocking the iPhone X.
