Apple expected to unveil a resigned iPhone

Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities claims that though Apple will be announcing the iPhone X, the wireless charging accessory will not be showcased. After months of speculation, iPhone fans are finally going to get a look at Apple's next-generation iPhone. The packed event is being held at the Steve Jobs Theater.

This will be Apple's first product event at its new spaceship-shaped campus, Apple Park, in Cupertino, Calif. CBC News will be reporting from the event at Steve Jobs Theatre. We might not know for sure what the exact monikers of the upcoming handsets will be but we do know one thing: the flagship iPhone will mark the beginning of a new era for Apple. But in the case of the iPhone X, Apple's most important product in years, Apple's own code ruined some of the surprise, like the name, the big screen, and some of the key features like FaceID. It will make use of Apple's new software, iOS 11. Reports suggest that the iPhone 8 may also have a "SmartCam" feature that can automatically recognize scenes and objects and adjust the camera settings to the optimal ones for shooting them.

If you want Apple's latest smartphone, be ready to open your wallet.

Cost: The latest phone will start at $1,000, according to The New York Times. Apple is also expected to unveil updates to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models. The aluminium chassis design we've seen on the iPhone 7 series will continue with the iPhone 8. There were others like Longhorn (@never_released) who tweeted about iPhone X featuring a USB Type C port instead of the company's proprietary lightning port. All the new iPhones are expected to be equipped with the new A11 processor, which is faster and uses less power than the current A10. An anonymous source is said to have shared links online to early versions of iOS 11, the iPhone's mobile operation system, and tvOS, its Apple TV software online.

The third-generation Smartwatch is expected to come with LTE - long-term evolution - connectivity that would all for cellular connectivity. Also expected are upgrades to the Watch and Apple TV.

If you are viewing on a Windows PC, you will need Microsoft Edge running on Windows 10.
