There's no need to spend $999 for a good phone these days

"It's great to have a product but we'd have liked it sooner rather than later, more like the beginning of October or mid-October", said Kim Forrest, an Apple fan from Pittsburgh in the US. This is essential for Apple, which is reluctant to use any cloud processing power. Ultimately, this decision will accelerate the adoption of AR and the future of computing.

It's been 10 years of the iPhone.

The iPhone X will cost $999, and will be generally available on Nov. 3, available for pre-order Oct. 27.

With a market cap of around $833.87 billion, Apple is a company with considerable clout, and one mention in its biggest event of the year can make waves for smaller companies.

Still, it's worth remembering that, just as with fingerprint scanners, facial recognition may not work in all cases - such as if you're backlit by a spotlight. The screen isn't quite as nice as larger-sized iPhones and Touch ID is slower, but the iPhone X doesn't even have Touch ID, so something is better than nothing. Apple has added a new feature called Portrait Lighting, which uses machine learning to read your face in selfies and adjust the lighting accordingly. We're in a golden age of consumer entitlement, where people believe they deserve premium goods and services just because they've worked hard and been good.

Remember that the iPhone does not use microSD cards to be added for more storage, unlike Android-powered devices, so what you buy in store is what you have for ever.

And then there was one more thing. Apple CEO Tim Cook and other executives also announced the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and a new Apple Watch with cellular connectivity, all of which will be available on Sept. 22.
