Good news for all fans of iPhone gadgets. Apple has finally unveiled three new generation smartphones. They were named iPhone 8, 8 Plus, as well as iPhone X.The long-awaited gadgets iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were not as interesting as expected, but still worthy of attention. The smartphones got a new, more powerful Apple A11 Bionic processor and the first graphics developed by the Cupertino giant. Both devices are enclosed in a glass case and boast water and dust protection at the level of IP68, as well as a 12-megapixel camera with an aperture of F1.8. At the same time, the older model received a dual camera, complemented by an improved F2.8 telephoto-module. "Eight" boasts a Retina HD 4.7″ display and support for True Tone, and 8 Plus - the same, but with a diagonal of 5.5″. Gadgets are presented in silver, gold and color "gray space" and will get versions with 64 or 256 GB of internal memory. That said, the iPhone 8 will cost $699 in the minimum package and the iPhone 8 Plus will cost $799. Pre-orders will be open from September 15. The smartphones will go on sale as early as September 22.Things are a little better with the iPhone X. The first surprise smartphone can be considered its name - it does not mean "X", but "ten", which symbolizes the tenth anniversary since the release of the first iPhone on the market. As promised by the manufacturers, the device received a frameless display on almost the entire front panel. In addition, the smartphone no longer has Touch ID fingerprint scanner and Home button. Instead, Apple has equipped the device with support for Face ID technology to unlock the gadget through facial recognition. It is reported that the iPhone Jubilee will be able to recognize the user even if he puts on a hat or change his hair. Nevertheless, during the presentation Craig Federighi - Apple's senior vice president of software development - has failed to demonstrate the technology in action on two attempts.The new smartphone has also received a glass body, dust and water protection and an improved processor A11 bionic along with Apple's own graphics.

Also, the device got support for True Tone and HDR10 technologies.

It is reported that with the new smartphone can shoot 4K video at up to 60 frames per second. It is expected that the pre-order for a new gadget will be possible only on October 27, and deliveries will begin only on November 3. The device will be available only in two colors - silver and gray space. In this case, the cost of the device with 64 GB of internal memory will be $ 999, and the cost of a more capacious model with 256 GB on board is still unknown. We should add that all three new smartphones have received the promised support of wireless charging Qi. True, the information about the ability to charge the iPhone at a distance of about 4 meters is not confirmed. Moreover, the representatives of the company said, that the wireless charger itself has not been developed yet, so that the users, who want to try the new technology, will have to use third-party adapters.
