Apple Watch Series 3 revealed with built-in cellular connectivity

The new Apple TV 4K, as the name suggests comes with 4K HDR 10 support along with Dolby vision.

So, there you have it - two new iPhones, a new 4K Apple TV, and a new Apple Watch. Moreover, the rear camera is also capable of capturing 4K video up to 60fps and 1080p slo-mo to 240fps. The face mapping goes on to let users create animated emojis based on facial expressions.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available in Andorra, Bahrain, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Greenland, Guernsey, Hungary, Iceland, India, Isle of Man, Israel, Jersey, Kuwait, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Malta, Monaco, Poland, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia and Slovenia beginning Friday, September 29.

The iPhone wasn't the only line to get an upgrade today. Whether most of us can afford it is TBD.

The new features are expected to push the new iPhone's price point above $1000, and recent concerns over whether the new iPhone will be ready for the holiday seasons have been increasing.

The innards include a powerful Apple A11 Bionic processor paired with a dual-core neural engine which learns to keep a track of your face with time. You can preorder on September 15, and the devices will become available on September 22.

Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular connection will allow users to answer phone calls, send text and see map directions. You will need a cellular service plan to use the LTE features, but this will probably be something carriers will offer as an option to add on to your current cell phone plan. The company says that all existing HD movie titles on the Apple that have 4K versions available will get them free of charge, and the AppleTV interface will be redone at 4K resolution. It will also come in two different cases sizes of either 38mm or 42mm. Siri can find music for you on the watch itself! You will be able to choose from over 40 million songs and stream them directly to your wrist.

WatchOS 4 will not only measure your current heart rate, it will also collect data on your resting heart rate and recovery heart rate, said Apple. The device will also notify users of an elevated heart rate when the users are non-active.

The biggest addition to the Apple Watch Series 3 is built-in cellular connectivity. The latest watch will start at $399.

The revamped iOS Watch 4 operating system will be available September 19. It arrives in gold, silver or space grey aluminium, and starts at $329. And now that Apple Watch is also a phone ... it's going to be a killer device this Christmas and probably wasn't on any Wall Street analysts radar. Congratulations to the Apple Watch team for this breakthrough.
