Apple raises bar in your hand, on your wrist, in your home.


From the company that brought you “just one more thing,” Apple® certainly didn’t disappoint at its September product introduction.

It begins where the announcements ended, with the revolutionary iPhone X.  With its all-screen design, 5.8-inch Super Retina® display and intelligence that responds to a tap, a voice and even a glance, Apple is touting this as the most technologically advanced mobile device ever designed.  iPhone® X introduces Face ID that uses ultra-secure 3D imagery to unlock with just a glance, 12MP dual cameras with dual optical image stabilization, Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting, a TrueDepth camera for portrait selfies and expressive Animoji, the A11 Bionic chip, wireless charging and water and dust resistance.  All this, plus iOS 11.  Ten years after the first iPhone was introduced, iPhone X (that’s ten, BTW) will be available November 3.

If the eye-opening price point of the iPhone X gives you reason for pause, have no fear.  iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are also here, and introduce an all-new glass design with a stylish color-matched aluminum band. iPhone 8 features a more advanced 12MP camera with a larger, faster sensor. iPhone 8 Plus features 12MP dual cameras with Portrait mode and new Portrait Lighting (Beta). Both models also feature the A11 Bionic chip, wireless charging, water and dust resistance, and iOS 11. iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will be available September 22.
Apple Watch Series 3 arrives in two distinct models, one with GPS and cellular, and one with GPS.  All Series 3 models feature faster performance, a barometric altimeter, and watchOS® 4.
Apple Watch® Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) is packed with features to help wearers stay connected, be more active and listen to more music (up to 40 million songs) than ever before. Most important, users now have the freedom and flexibility to go anywhere with just Apple Watch — untethered to an iPhone. The new cellular lineup also includes Apple Watch Nike+ and the new Nike Sport Loop, new models of Apple Watch Hermès with new bands, and Apple Watch Edition™ in a new gray ceramic finish.
Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS) is also loaded with great features to help wearers stay informed, get smart activity coaching and listen to virtually unlimited music.  Touted by Apple as the ultimate sports watches, the GPS lineup also includes Apple Watch Nike+.
