Iphone X launched at Rs 1 lakh, and Twitter couldn't stop trolling

Apple, in celebration of its tenth anniversary, have announced the iPhone X (pronounced iPhone ten), and we have rounded up everything you need to know about it so far and will update it as soon as we hear more. Unlocking the phone with your face may prove faster and simpler in time, but Craig Federighi's demo fail when he first attempted to unlock his iPhone suggests otherwise.

Here's a closer look at what it's like to use the company's new flagship smartphone after a brief hands-on session. Meaning your new iPhone will instantly work with thousands of supported accessories and chargers on the market. Since the plan allows you to swap in the phone for a new one after 12 payments, you'd have to pay only $598.92 before upgrading.

The facial-scanning software can also be used to animate emojis and send them as messages, a feature Apple is calling Animoji.

Apple said that the AirPower charging mat will be coming in 2018, but didn't give a specific date.

The upgrade includes live sports and according to Apple, any HD videos previously bought through iTunes will get upgraded to 4K for free. Something fans have asked about for years. That's no longer the case though.

Apple detailed a range of new products overnight, and we've all the details for you in one convenient place.

More than 4,000 flights were cancelled on Monday, mostly out of Atlanta, Miami, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Tampa's airports. The US Virgin Islands were also badly affected.

The most popular topic on social media on Tuesday was the big Apple "event" in California.

However, the eye-watering price of the smartphone has shocked many wannabe owners leading to a hilarious wave of memes on how best to afford the gadget. As a result, you can find Qi wireless chargers at the airport, in hotels, Starbucks and from countless 3rd party accessory manufacturers.

The big difference between the iPhone X and the iPhone 8 is the iPhone X has that infinity screen, where there's barely any border and glass on the front and back. Additionally, a lot of auto manufacturers have Qi wireless charging built into vehicles too. The watch will use the same number as the phone. It isn't completely wireless, but it's close.

Belkin has announced the Boost Up charging pad for the new iPhones, which has a maximum rated power capacity of 7.5-watts. Matching speeds previously only available from Samsung.

"Now, you can go for a run with just your watch", said Jeff Williams, Apple's chief operating officer and in charge of Watch development. After all, unlike iPhone, iPad, and Mac, Apple lumps in Apple Watch sales with its "other products" revenue. Which suggests that everything from slower 7-watt chargers to the fastest 15-watt options will work. Apple said all four big USA carriers would support the new Apple Watch. Aussies consequently will pay A$208 to A$234 more than their United States counterparts.

The iPhone X prize is prized at $999 for a 64GB version, $1,149 (about half a million naira) for a 256GB version, and it is expected to ship November 3.
