Answer a call from your surfboard.

Apple CEO Tim Cook would like you to know it's really a bit of a bargain. Apple has priced the iPhone X, which comes in two storage variants 64GB and 256GB, at Rs 89,000 onwards in India. They also both have a metal frame and are IP67 certified dust and water resistant (so they can be submerged one metre deep for up to 30 minutes) but that's largely where the similarities end.

Even though the iPhone X will come in at the iWatering price of £999, its cost is unlikely to deter Apple fans who are waiting to snap up one of the gadgets later this year.

Their dimensions and weights are very different too. The iPhone 8 Plus has a dual camera, which allows it to provide a greater sense of depth in your pictures and helps the camera distinguish between foreground and background. This phone is all screen. It's simple, they want the iPhone X that will provide other features, an awesome screen, good camera and at a price that will be a little over the one for iPhone 8 Plus. Apple's hopes of becoming a $1 trillion company, which isn't entirely out of the realm of possibility, rest on its ability to build up a portfolio of niche products like the HomePod, AirPods and new Apple Watch products as well as a blockbuster iPhone release.

The iPhone X was unveiled last week during the launch of Apple's latest smartphones, smartwatch and TV box in Cupertino, California.

"Had Apple not announced the X when it did, the iPhone 8 would be an easy choice for upgraders and about the same amount of take-it-or-leave-it talk by early adopters that we saw at the launch of the iPhone 7", Panzarino said.

Whether or not to buy the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus is a harder decision. It seems like Apple's promises of making phone calls while paddleboarding in the ocean are only good if you don't plan to be paddling very long. The iPhone X is the realization of that vision. That's likely to be especially handy when multitasking. Wired declares, "The iPhones 8 check every box a phone has ever checked before, but they feels like the last of something right as Apple and others prepare the first of something else".

The cameras on both the iPhone 8/8 Plus and iPhone X saw only a few upgrades, though this is probably because of the vast improvements that came previous year. Instead, the front-facing camera will recognize the owner by using Apple's new Face ID. This reduces the accuracy of the in-screen fingerprint scanner.

The new Apple Watch Series 3, the iPhone 8, and the iPhone 8 Plus will hit the markets soon. The Apple Watch's LTE problems will likely be more of the same.

There's seemingly nothing wrong with this device... except it's not the iPhone X. Why get the 8 when something more impressive is releasing weeks later? Pre-orders for iPhone X will start from October 27 in 55 countries, including India. "That didn't work. Siri also wasn't "talking back" to me, something that's supposed to be a new feature on the Series 3 Watch".

When rumors were swirling months ago, many believed the 8 and the X were one in the same.
