A voiceover from Jobs, Apple's co-founder who died in 2011, opened the event before CEO Tim Cook took stage.

The iPhone X has no tactile home button. It's also been partly replaced by a larger side button which can be used to activate Siri.

Since the original watch's debut in April 2015, Apple has been trying to enable more stand-alone features. The App Switcher will also remember your favorite Split View app combinations, so you can pick up where you left off using multiple apps at once without opening each up individually. It is an AMOLED display, as predicted: a so-called Super Retina Display combining all the benefits of OLED technology, such as the great contrast and deep blacks, with the color accuracy Apple's screens are known for. The iPhone 8 Plus will start at $799. As a result, limited quantities of the phone will be available at launch. The iPhone X exclusive feature uses the 3D camera sensors to make emoji that mirror facial expressions and use your own voice.

Apple has released its iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which are created to work with augmented reality applications. The iPhone X 64GB is likely to cost $999, the iPhone 256GB will cost $1099 while the most expensive variant with price of $1199 could be the iPhone X 512GB. Pre orders 9/15, available 9/22. This time, the focus is on a brand new luxury device supposedly called the iPhone X, a new, top-of-the-line model that forecasters are calling the first radical make-over of Apple's smartphone in years.

Tesla extends battery life for Irma evacuees
Tesla has increased the maximum range of its Model S and Model X 60/60D vehicles. Luckily for them, Tesla is lending a hand as well.

New lighting effect on iPhone 8 camera lets you darken and nearly remove background. The Plus features a 5.5-inch screen and the standard features a 4.7-inch screen.

Apple spent a lot of time showcasing the phone's ability with augmented reality, including games. Previous version of the watch had required customer to carry a phone for internet access.

AR lets you overlay a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world. Apple claims the Aerospace-grade aluminum body is the "most durable ever in a smartphone" - it's microscopically sealed for water and dust resistance.

Some of the biggest improvement will come through the new operating system, iOS 11, which will be released on September 19. It costs the same as the iPhone 7 did. The new watch goes up for order on September 15th and hits stores on September 22nd.

Japan PM: North Korea must abandon all missile programmes
Bush announced the unilateral withdrawal of all land-based and sea-based tactical nuclear weapons, including from South Korea. The removal of the cap would allow the South to potentially target the North's underground facilities and shelters.

Apple also introduced two other phones and an upgraded Apple TV at the event on Tuesday. And not surprisingly, the headphone jack is still missing, but you do get a dongle in the set if you really need one.

At the moment, there's little 4K and HDR content available with Netflix having a few dozen shows to stream in New Zealand.

Apple says it's been working with movie studios to bring titles with 4K and HDR to its iTunes store.

Analysts predict that Apple will release three new models, and the top-of-the-line version will cost a jaw-dropping $1,000. It will feature better heart-rate sensing and alerts, as well as new "activity coaching" and exercise challenges. It also works with Apple Pay.

The new cellular model, called Series 3, will start at $399.
