There was a time when an Apple event signaled another technological paradigm shift, replete with fancy new gadgets on the bleeding edge of what was possible. Calls to your phone will go to the watch, and calls from the watch will appear on caller ID with your regular number. For instance, according to Cook, someone in the market for a new vehicle could go inside the auto using AR from home rather than having to visit a vehicle dealership showroom to see inside.

Connectivity was supposed to be Apple's big breakthrough, now it's their worst nightmare along with claims by reviewers that consumers should hang onto their iPhone 7 after reviewing the iPhone 8. Particularly since features like Face ID are still unproven as a replacement for Touch ID.
Apple says custom glass from Corning makes the phone stronger. Sinfield shows two flyovers of the lobby in his video, one at the 48-second mark and another at 1:50.
Apple has three new phones coming this fall.
Nowadays, most mobile carriers have switched to "equipment installment plans", which let phone buyers know exactly how many months they'll be paying for a new handset. Space gray, silver, and gold are the options.
Finally Apple unveiled their latest iPhone, the iPhone X that comes at $999 which will be available for preordering starting with 27 October. This phone is all screen. It seems like you could just save yourself the money and use the phone you already pay for as your phone.
Instead, that's the iPhone X that will launch in November.
The display is an nearly edge to edge OLED screen, having a little cut-out at the top of the screen where there's a camera and sensors for Face ID or Animoji option. That means the iPhone gets all the technical advancements from the consortium behind Qi - and can take immediate advantage of a slew of public wireless-charging stations. "AirPower" allows users to rest their device on the pad, anywhere, wirelessly. A CNBC report in May found Apple's share of smartphone profits slid five percent from the last quarter of 2016 through the first quarter of 2017, and that Samsung had converted some Apple users. Apple's promised 18 hours of battery life includes about four hours of such use.
TrueDepth also powers Animoji, a new feature which creates fun, animated emojis by recording the user's facial expressions that can be sent to others via messages. "Animoji" utilizes your face muscles to make the animal emojis move to what your face does. The iPhone 7 plus introduced the world to portrait mode for the rear camera and the iPhone X's cameras have furthered this quality. But while an iPad is designed for all-day use, with data consumption on par with phones and computers, the Apple Watch's cellular functions should be used sparingly.
Mr Williams added cellular would change the way people could listen to music. The ability to shift back and forth between connectivity paths is called a "handoff", and for some reason the Watch 3 can't manage it consistently.
