Apple unveils $999 iPhone X, loses 'home' button

Apple unveils $999 iPhone X, loses 'home' button

Instead of pressing the button to get the homepage, you swipe up instead.

Apple unveiled its latest iPhones, which include the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus as well as the iPhone X, at a press event on Tuesday. The company also unveiled its pricing. Apple removed some familiar features and chose not to add some of the most requested features. Most carriers are pushing their device add-on plans that allow you to use your wearable with your main phone number.

Apple's new all-glass design makes wireless charging possible: You can't wirelessly charge a phone through aluminum. It's water and dust resistant. The screen measures 5.8-inches diagonally.

The biggest difference between the two phones might turn out to be Apple's front-facing "TrueDepth" camera that's used for Face ID and can be used for secure payments via Apple Pay. Your carrier is at the ready to take a little more money from you every month for that feature, too. It uses small flood light to work in the dark. But those chances drop to 1 in a million with face detection. Here are the the most exciting Phone X features that Apple announced and that you will get when you buy the new phone.

Samsung doesn't have a notch but the screen doesn't go as far to the edge at the top as the iPhone X.

For those not willing to shell out a grand for a new smartphone, the iPhone 8 options are cheaper and also pack a powerful punch.

Despite both shooting in 12MP, the iPhone X has a dual camera on the rear of the device, which offers a better depth-of-field when compared to the S8's single camera. In looks as well as in specs, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus represent incremental updates from last year's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The iPhone 8 clocks in at 4.7 inches and iPhone 8 Plus is 5.5 inches. But inside is an A11 "bionic chip" and an improved camera sensor.

Fox News has not done a full review yet, so some features cannot be accurately compared.

Here's how the iPhone X and the S8 break down on key features and price. The charging requires contact between a special surface and the glass back of the iPhone. The technology is based on Qi wireless charging, which Apple believes will be available at coffee shops, stores and airports around the world in the near future, so people can get juice on the go. If you want the larger model, it starts at $429. For example, it flags users when it detects an elevated pulse.

For now, users will have to use third-party wireless charging stations. That's because you'll also be able to the cellular connection for other things, like streaming music (see below) and following map directions. The Apple Watch Series 3 will ship with an aluminium case in a wide variety of bands including a new Space Gray band, a new sports loop band.

The Series 3 will start at $399. It works with all four major carriers in the USA, though Apple did not mention details on plan pricing. The new watch comes out September 22. However, there's not a lot of video in 4K and HDR yet, nor are there many TVs that can display it. Its graphics are four times as fast, according to Apple.

Apple said it's been working with movie studios to bring titles with 4K and HDR to its iTunes store. They're officially expected to hit the shelves on Friday September 22.

Apple isn't the first smartphone maker to offer wireless charging.
