Apple also claims improved battery life on the iPhone X and is promised to deliver two hours better battery life than the iPhone 7. Since the newly launched iPhones are not really affordable, you can opt for these ones instead. Those who will likely buy the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus won't necessarily be too anxious about getting it quickly.

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus introduce an all-new glass design with wireless charging.

The latest line-up of Apple iPhones, the iPhone 8, the iPhone 8 Plus and top-of-the-line iPhone X, all feature built-in wireless charging capabilities.

Besides the name (poor, forgotten iPhone 9 - will you ever be, now?) there are a couple of major changes, both in terms of the physical phone itself and in terms of the features. The new phones will also have the highest-quality video capture in a smartphone, Schiller said.

Part of the iPhone X unveil included the addition of AniMoji, which are animated emojis.

But paying the full price up front isn't the only way to buy the iPhone X when preorders start on October 27. Preorders for the iPhone start September 18 and will be available September 22. An upgrade to watchOS 4 will be available for older models starting on September 19.

On Tuesday chief executive Tim Cook called the new device "the biggest leap forward" since the first iPhone. Like the iPhone 8, the iPhone X also has True Tone display technology. The biggest drawcard for the iPhone X is the ability to have a bigger (and better) screen in the smaller form factor.

End of the Home button. To wake up the phone, users can simply tap the screen. It has also got a new gesture language, swiping up will launch the multi-tasking screen.

iPhone X will be available in Silver and Space Grey in 64GB and 256GB models starting at £999 from Apple.com/uk and Apple Stores and is also available through Apple Authorised Resellers and carriers.

Face ID uses an array of cameras and sensors to unlock your device, activate Apple Pay and more. It entails choosing an emoji, then looking at the phone's camera to record a series of facial expressions which will be mapped to the emoji you've chosen. The move means that the Watch can be used by runners or fitness enthusiasts to listen to streamed music or check messages and notifications without having their phone with them. The camera also allows for Face ID unlocking, with facial recognition software achievable through the phone's new A11 Bionic chipset.

Some funkier iPhone X videos can be seen below.

After spending some time with the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus (I did the same with the iPhone X a bit earlier), here's a closer look at what it's been like to use them.
