Flipkart, the Indian shopping website has revealed that from 22 September onwards Flipkart will start taking pre-orders for the all new Apple iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus, no news is there about the iPhone X yet as limited units of the device will be produced.

Introducing the Series 3 Watch, Jeff Williams, Apple's chief operating officer, said, "We believe the addition of cellular will transform the way people use Apple Watch, providing a new sense of freedom since they can stay connected with or without their iPhone". They feature a brand new design and waterproof glass casing, but most importantly, functions like wireless charging, an A11 bionic chip and a huge 5.5-inch display.

LTE calls can only give the Watch Series 3 an hour's battery life, 18 hours without any calls and Global Positioning System usage. During the Apple Keynote, Apple mentioned all the things the new watch can do, including making calls and track your fitness regime. Apple also says that the new devices are 30 percent faster compared to the iPhone 7.

While both the Apple Watch Series 3 versions are more or less the same, users will not be able to make or receive calls on the regular version.

The new iPhone X 256GB variant has crossed the Rs. 1 lakh mark.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have very much dominated the news cycle for the past few months.

IT wasn't just a brace of iPhones that Apple announced at its recent launch event. Even better, if you bought a movie in HD from iTunes, if it's now available in 4K, Apple will upgrade you for free.

The 64GB gold and space gray version is a most favorite, and it's now shipping by September 29 or October 6th. Virgin Mobile USA has confirmed its launch date for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

The Apple TV 4K, with support for UltraHD and HDR movies, is $179 with 32GB of built-in storage and $199 with 64GB (£179 and £199). But if you're just in the market for a phone that is superior to your iPhone 5S in terms of speed, camera performance and so on, you will be happy with a normal iPhone. On contract, pricing starts at $41.63/month for the iPhone X. Prices start at £329 for Series 3, or £399 with cellular capabilities. It's also the first iPhone that uses OLED and HDR technology for its display.
