Apple iPhone X reveal: what to expect for its 10th anniversary

Apple just announced a new Apple TV that will stream video in ultra-sharp 4K resolution

On top of that, people expect Apple to announce an update to the iPhone 7 as well as a new Apple Watch with cellular capabilities. The company is all set to unveil its new products in its September 12 event at the Steve Jobs Theater.

"During that time, the smartphone market has gone from huge growth potential to achieving scale, and now the biggest competition for a new iPhone model is often old iPhone models as the audience needs to be convinced an upgrade is warranted".

TechCrunch was first to reveal that invites for the launch had been sent out, having previously reported that the event would fall on this day. We're likely to see the launch of three new iPhones at the event - an iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus. And while Apple in its invites to the press event didn't clarify what's on the agenda, the excitement is palpable.

The Apple TV requires the 2nd or 3rd generation with recent software version 6.2 or later or an Apple TV (4th generation).

Apple will lure hundreds of tech reporters below ground on Tuesday morning to show them something shiny and new. It would be surprising if Apple wasn't looking to make a splash, so there's more reason than ever to watch the event live as it happens.

When will the Apple event 2017 begin?

To watch the launch on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch you will need iOS 9.0 or later, with a recent version of Safari.

In case you are using a Windows OS and a Windows device, you must be running at least the Microsoft Edge browser to watch the live stream.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are expected to start at around $700.

There are only a few hours left until the launch of the new generation iPhones and we still don't know for sure what their names will be.

It's probably why Apple has chose to go the FaceID route on the X. With all that screen there isn't room for the Home button that's been a part of the iPhone since its launch in 2007.

It's been 10 years since Apple's iPhone was introduced.

Analysts have hinted that the iPhone charging cable might be removed, just like the headphone jack.

It would also indicate that wireless charging was unlikely, however we have also seen rumours suggesting that wireless charging will indeed be coming to the two cheaper models.
