What to Expect When You're Expecting a New iPhone

What to Expect When You're Expecting a New iPhoneā€¯

Today's the day - Apple's iPhone event is upon us.

As expected, Apple is also ditching the home button on this model.

According to reports, the giant technology company will likely unveil at a major event its iPhone 8 or iPhone X as it celebrates the 10th anniversary of its iPhone line of products.

The iPhone X is expected to be available for pre-orders on September 15 and will be ready for shipping on September 22. However, fans got an early taste of what's in store ahead of today's release date when Apple suffered a major leak two days before its launch, with numerous iPhone 8's features being revealed.

The launch will take place at Apple's new Steve Jobs Theatre in the "Spaceship", or, Apple Park campus. Apple says it'll also feature the highest-quality video capture ever in a smartphone.

The camera of the iPhone X will also likely come with several updates, including a beta version of Portrait Lighting for more advanced photographic capabilities.

Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities claims that though Apple will be announcing the iPhone X, the wireless charging accessory will not be showcased.

Here are some of the new features rumoured to expect in the new iPhone 8. The iPhone X sports ultra-narrow bezels that ensure a unique visual experience.

Other technology experts have also indicated that the iPhone 8 looks set to include OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) for both the front and rear camera lens.

Investors, betting the new phone will rejuvenate Apple's sales after a recent slump, have pushed Apple's share price to record highs in recent months.

Innovation has been one of the key success factors of the iPhone during its history, but some have suggested that there may be a distinct lack of new tech involved in the latest release.

For Apple watchers, seeing how this world-changing gadget is holding up after a decade will be vital viewing.

Fox News confirmed the Apple Watch Series 3 was seen briefly inside the Verizon app, marking the latest of a series of leaks surrounding Apple products.

Last but not least, it's also turned its hand to telly sets, and is bringing out a 4K high definition Apple TV. One without cellular goes for $329, down from $369 for the comparable model now. The GM is the final version of operating system software made available to developers before a new OS is publicly released. There are clues about the upgraded Apple TV in found config files.
