The moment has finally arrived.
The highly anticipated Apple event to unveil a batch of new products, notably the all-new iPhone, is here.
And while there has been a whole lot of discussion over what features it has (facial recognition and no Home button for starters), we have only just found what's officially on the iPhone X (pronounced like the number 10).
Apple boss Tim Cook has called it the "biggest leap forward" since the original iPhone, and it features an edge to edge screen, plus Face ID. Oh and it's available for £999 in the UK.
Five important developments:
- Wireless charging
- Face ID - facial recognition will be used to unlock the new iPhone
- Longer battery life than iPhone 7 (two hours to be exact)
- Animojis - the introduction of animated emojis
- No home button - there's an edge to edge screen, and instead an upward swipe takes you to the home screen
The raft of features on Apple's iPhone X:
More on that facial recognition:
You need attention to unlock, so the phone won't unlock if the user's eyes are closed, and the Apple team has worked to protect against spoofing so it can't be tricked by photos.
While there was a one in 50,000 chance a random user could unlock your phone with Touch ID; with Face ID it is one in a million.
And those Animoji are sliding right into Apple messages, so you'll be able to send (potentially slightly creepy) animated emojis using your own facial expressions to friends in no time...
So how much and when's it out?
Apple said a 64GB iPhone X will be on sale from $999, and £999 in the UK. Pre-orders start on 27 October, and will be available from 3 November.
