The iPhone 8 series has a better display, processor, plus wireless charging

More notably, Apple announced its new line of phones, which include the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus and the iPhone X.

The new phones feature Apple's first proprietary graphics processor, which provides greater speed, improved cameras and some features for augmented reality apps.

Check out the Apple event time across the world: NY: 1 PM, San Francisco: 10 AM, Berlin: 7 PM, London: 6 PM, New Delhi: 10:30 PM, Beijing: 1 AM (September 13). STEVE JOBS HOMAGE This is the first product event for Apple at its new spaceship-like headquarters in Cupertino, California.

Apple chief executive officer Tim Cook unveiled the Apple Watch in September 2014, banking on the product being the company's next big category. But something about being stuck in your own personal cloud-or to be more precise, the cloud Apple is lending you a slice of-is also alienating. The 5.8-inch Super Retina Display is Apple's first OLED screen, and supports Dolby Vision and HDR10.

The company could also unveil a new Apple TV, according to several tech blogs and a recent leak of the company's upcoming iOS update. It will start at $999 at launch for the base 64GB model, making it $300 more expensive than the base iPhone 8.

Various leaks have indicated the new phone will feature a sharper display, a so-called OLED screen that will extend from edge to edge of the device, thus eliminating the exterior gap, or "bezel", that now surrounds most phone screens. The new iPhone 8 devices launch on September 22 and are the type of iterative upgrade we've come to expect. The camera now supports 1080p slow mo video in 240 fps, and 4K video in a more impressive 60 fps, which Apple claims to be the best quality video capture ever on a smartphone.

Apple last released its sixth generation iPod in 2015, and stopped reporting iPod sales that year.
