It will all add up. Chief Executive Tim Cook called the phone "the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone". Should I upgrade? Can I afford it? It is followed by Apple and China's Huawei, with 12 per cent and 11.3 per cent market share respectively. While the 64GB iPhone X is priced at Rs 89,000 in India, its 256GB variant sports a price tag of Rs 1,02,000. No Lightning leads cluttering up the living room.

For everyone else: You can save $300. The Wireless Power Consortium ensures that every charger that claims to use the Qi standard actually does. The three new iPhones sport a new design and processor.

Qi charging: What is Qi? In addition, the pads are connected to the backend of Powermat, which allows for a remote updating of the software.

Venafi, the leading provider of machine identity protection, today announced the award of two new patents by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The iPhone X is coming soon and we're even seeing iPhone 8 deals that can cut down the price to something a little more easy to swallow. While charged, the iPhones will still retain their ability to make calls and receive notifications and can also be used just as usual while charging.

If you're buying a new car right now with integrated charging, make sure it works with your phone. Well, there is no such information we have at this moment and for that, we have to wait for some official confirmation regarding the pricing of the new AirPods, a Wireless Charging Case and the replacements pricing from the giant. From a functional standpoint though, the feature isn't making your life any faster or easier.

And, swiping to go home is not a bad user interface paradigm.

Like the last generations of iPhone, the iPhone 8 has a Touch ID sensor below the screen.

Yet none of this is revolutionary. You'll probably want to be careful who you let in: you don't want someone who might start cheekily tweeting on your behalf. Ideally, Apple should have been shipping its latest iPhones with chargers that support fast charging. These earned Apple about $2.7bn in the third quarter. The movie experience on the iPhone X will be more immersive because you will only see the screen, not a half-inch strip along the bottom.

Apple TV: Apple's set-top box will now support 4K resolution, which is four times as sharp as HD. This benefit is not open to its smaller competitors, although Samsung also enjoys huge scale. It's the closest thing you'll get to having your profile pic taken by Mario Testino.

The Belkin Boost Up will be available for purchase starting on the 15th of September where it will be priced at $60 and will be available via Belkin's website or Apple.

The new phones, unveiled on Tuesday, boast numerous improvements.
