The special event at the Steve Jobs Theater, inside the technology company's new headquarters complex, known as Apple Park, in Cupertino, Northern California, was anticipated because an upgraded version of iPhone is expected as the smartphone's 10th anniversary edition. Apple uses the USB-C charging port on most MacBooks, but the iPhones retain the company's proprietary Lightning port. The fact that you can only get this major battery benefit through a USB-C adaptor signals that Apple's demand to be different actually shuts it out of the fast charging feature.

Of the new models announced yesterday, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus look pretty similar to the last few generations of iPhones, but they swap the all-aluminum shell for a glass back to facilitate the new wireless charging, upgrade the screen to a True Tone display for better color accuracy, and offer the usual camera and processor improvements (this time, to the new A11 Bionic six-core chip). You can also use Apple Pay in Safari on any Mac introduced in or after 2012 running macOS Sierra and confirm the payment with iPhone 6 or later or Apple Watch, or with Touch ID on the new MacBook Pro.

Due to the premium price tag of the iPhone X and the huge screen the device has, the extended warranty might be something owners are especially interested in.

watchOS 4 comes out on September 19, updating Apple Watch models with a Siri watch face, an updated Workout app with an HIIT option and improved swim tracking, and heart rhythm monitoring software.

In addition to Face ID, another new iPhone feature with retail implications is enhanced support in the new iPhones for augmented reality. "As such, we do not believe Apple's run will end with today's iPhone event but still has attractive upside potential".
