However, the returns from reselling may not be as lucrative as they used to be, as Apple products are now rolled out on the mainland at the same time as Hong Kong, traders said.

The new Apple Watch, of course, includes other new upgrades beyond cellular data.

The new cellular model, called Series 3, will start at $399. A 256GB model will cost $1,149. If you don't want cellular connectivity, you can pick up a GPS-only model for $329.

Meanwhile, Apple is cutting the price of its Series 1 watch to be from $249.

Apple said it's been working with movie studios to bring titles with 4K and HDR to its iTunes store.

The Apple TV 4K is powered by the custom-made A10X Fusion chip, which is used on the Apple iPad Pro. Release on September 22.

Apple chief executive Tim Cook announced the premium iPhone X-pronounced 10-as well as a new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. Previous year the company's revenue declined when many consumers rejected the iPhone 7 as being too similar to the iPhone 6.

All-Screen Design front and back. And just as in previous years, numerous leaks turned out to be true. The display also features 3D Touch technology.

Also, for $1,000 you get a handheld computer with 250 gigabytes of storage and an upgraded camera. Of course, all modern iPhones will support augmented reality when iOS 11 launches, but it's unclear if it will perform as well on phones with slower processors and less advanced cameras. This is unlike the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which starts shipping on September 22. So to make things a bit clearer, here's a rundown of all the major differences between the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X.

Apple skipped the iPhone 7s and went straight to the iPhone 8. The display has a resolution of 2436 x 1125 pixels and has a pixel density of 458 PPI. It also features Apple's True Tone display tech and, supports both HDR10 and Dolby Vision content.

iPhone X looks pretty but I can't get my mind off the split status bar; it's a big concern for me.

When an app is open, users can swipe up from the bottom of the screen to navigate to the home screen. Since the plan allows you to swap in the phone for a new one after 12 payments, you'd have to pay only $598.92 before upgrading. Coming to the hardware, it uses the same Apple A11 Bionic chipset, and said to have 3GB of RAM. It unlocks using facial recognition software.

Front and back cameras feature portrait lighting.

The 8 range sports the same camera technology as the iPhone X, and also supports wireless charging.

Mophie, which was Apple's partner in making the battery cases for the iPhones thus far, has also announced the wireless charging base. Rumour has it that the 256 GB iPhone X will cost over a lakh rupees. Pre-orders don't start until October 27, and shipments slated for November 3.
