Real talk: Do you even need a new phone?

Whether users are out for a run, at the pool or just trying to be more active throughout their day, Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular allows them to stay connected, make calls, receive texts and more, even without iPhone nearby.

However, consumers in the US, UK, and Canada appear to be averse to the technology, accordingto a study by Paysafe.

You might be happy upgrading to the water-resistant iPhone 7. The iPhone 8 arrives with a retail price of £699, with its larger Plus model selling for £799. But don't be surprised if the big winner is the iPhone 8 Plus.

Size differences between the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus favor the bigger model. The point is to be able to do things without needing to carry your phone along - and that's useful in plenty of other ways, especially for Apple's core watch audience of fitness buffs. The new iPhone X still has a mere 60Hz display - though, to be fair, that display will likely prove to be the most gorgeous mobile display on the market.

The device uses Apple's brand new A11 Bionic chip, the successor to the A10X. The new devices will be available for preorder September 15. It adds more frame rate options and an improved flash.

Now, with the Watch free of the phone but with the same access to Apple's App Store, there's at least a more compelling reason to spend $399 (roughly Rs. 25,500) for it if you've been eyeing it.

The new iPhone X is displayed during an Apple special event at the Steve Jobs Theatre on the Apple Park campus on September 12, 2017 in Cupertino, California.

Bottomline is, Apple is not known to bring new features on their devices year after year, what it is known for, is to research and perfect existing technologies, and make sure they work perfectly in sync with people's lives, and of course with the entire Apple ecosystem. "With the introduction of iPhone ten years ago, we revolutionized the mobile phone with Multi-Touch. iPhone X marks a new era for iPhone - one in which the device disappears into the experience". Sometimes the UI is less than intuitive. Bloomberg reported that Apple had tested such a display on an iPhone prototype, which led me to believe that there was a good chance that we'd see it on the iPhone X.

Either way, Apple will sell a lot of iPhone X handsets and make a sickening amount of money in the process. The dual lenses are now stacked instead of side-by-side, and the telephoto lens has a wider ƒ/2.4 aperture. The Galaxy Note 8 and S8 are both compatible with the new system. From the end user's perspective, if they can't afford an iPhone X, but the iPhone 8/8 Plus don't feel like significant enough upgrades to justify their cost, then they may choose to sit on the sidelines this upgrade cycle. The phone doesn't even become available for preorders until Oct. 27, with deliveries not slated to begin until Nov. 3. True to the prevailing rumors, the handset doesn't include a physical home button. Apple has been late to the OLED game.

What's the same as the iPhone 8: The iPhone X also has inductive charging, a glass back, and the faster A11 processor. Exciting and entertaining movies will feature on its TV sets via this arrangement.

Cost and availability: The iPhone X starts at $999.
