1. Apple unveiled iPhone X, its first premium-tier phone, at an event in Cupertino, Calif., on Tuesday. (Pro tip: The X is pronounced 10, and not “ex.”) .. features OLED display, no home button, FACE-ID, and multi-core CPU

2. iPhone X has a newer screen technology known as OLED, a type of display that can be made thinner, lighter and brighter with better color accuracy and contrast than its predecessor, LCD.

3. The screen on the X has a so-called edge-to-edge display that takes up the entire face by eliminating the borders around the screen. Apple also eliminated the physical home button that has been a signature button on the iPhone for a decade. (simply swipe bottom of screen for “home” menu now)

4. iPhone 8 is also here, as well as its bigger sibling, the iPhone 8 Plus. The models include a high strength glass body on both sides with a faster CPU chip.

5. Apple TV, the company’s set-top box that has never been a blockbuster hit, got an upgrade. The device will now be able to stream so-called 4K resolution, which refers to screens with two times the vertical resolution and twice the horizontal resolution of older high-definition TVs.

6. Apple took the wraps off a new Apple Watch. Called Apple Watch Series 3, it has cellular capabilities. There’s also a new Watch OS.
