The new watch will be no bigger than its predecessor but for the first time has 4G built in - meaning you don't need to have your phone with you to make and receive phone calls. But the biggest focus of the evening was on the new iPhones. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are the standard incremental upgrade compared to the iPhone 7, but the iPhone X . Iphone X may be pronounced as iPhone ‘Ten’ . Iphone X is an all-new iPhone with a premium price tag.
The event takes place at Apple Park in Cupertino, California – specifically in a theatre built specifically for these launches and named after Apple’s founder Steve Jobs – the Steve Jobs Theater. Timothy Donald Cook , an American business executive, industrial engineer and developer and current Chief Executive Officer ( CEO )of Apple Inc. delivered speech in launching event .Cook said, "it was only fitting that Steve should open his theater."
"It's taken some time, but we can now reflect on him with joy, instead of sadness," Cook said. "Steve's vision lives on at Apple Park and everywhere at Apple. Today and always, we honor him."It's a fitting tribute, as well: 2017 marks the 10-year anniversary of the iPhone. And the original iPhone unveiling, back in 2007, was arguably Jobs' single most iconic moment at the company he cofounded. Still, Jobs' legacy is about more than just the iPhone, Cook said.
"His greatest gift ... was not a singular product, but rather Apple itself,"
