This morning, in a 2 hour keynote at the new Steve Jobs Theater, Apple released a few new products. Here's what's notable:
iPhone X: Bigger "Super Retina" screen, Unlock with your face (like an invisible selfie), better cameras, wireless charging, no more home button. Starts at $999.
iPhone 8: Looks like the iPhone 7. Wireless charging, faster, has an 8 instead of a 7. Starts at $699
Note: Both phones have fast charging. The iPhone can charge up to 50% in 30 minutes.
Apple TV 4k: Has 4K content and support. Also comes with HDR if you have an HDR tv. Netflix 4k and Amazon Prime 4k coming soon. Starts at $179
Apple Watch Series 3: Has a red dot on the digial crown (the dial thing) that indicates Cellular, in other words: You can stream music, answer phone calls, and more without your iPhone anywhere nearby. New bands. Starts at $349 w/o LTE.
Processors and Performance:
The most impressive thing on paper is how fast these new processors are. The A11 Bionic can compete with intel's i7:

Apple also launched a bunch of new Animojis which allow you to be a Unicorn, Fox, or even the Poop emoji. It moves it's mouth and other facial muscles when you move. They spent years developing the new camera sensor array so you could talk like a poop face. The future is now.
