To no one’s surprise, Apple launched a bunch of new devices today in the Steve Jobs theater at the Apple spaceship docking station in Cupertino.
The new gadgetry includes:
- the iPhone X, a thousand dollar phone that trades security and sturdiness for a high price tag and a pretty screen (and it is a pretty screen, yes). It and ships on 3 November .
- the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, the preferred smartphone of the common folk. Pricing starts at $799, and they ship on 15 November.
- Apple’s first true smartwatch, the Apple Watch 3 (previous models were merely secondary screens for iPhones). Retail starts at $399 for the LTE version, and shipping starts on 22 September.
- the Apple TV 4K. This Roku-killer sells for $179 and ships on 22 September.
So what do you think of the hardware? Is there anything on your must get list?
