On Tuesday, September 12, the Apple company released a new line of iPhones, Apple watches, and Apple TVs. This new line includes new features and updates on past products, to make them better. For example, the iPhone 7 has touch ID, where as the new iPhone X/10 has face ID to unlock the phone. The X has many new features, including moving emojis, and an all around screen. To some this may be intriguing, but to some it seems like a lot of things that could go wrong. As impressive and amazing this may seem, there are some downsides to the iPhone X. First off, it comes out almost two months after the iPhone 8 does, so if you want it you'll have to wait. Secondly, the phone costs over $1000! It is about $1000 for the 64gb, and the 256gb will cost $1,149. So, if your willing to spend the money and most likely wait until next year to get your fancy new phone, then go for it. Also, new product normally come with new sets of bugs and problems that can occur, so there's always a risk.
If you have an iPhone 7, it is probably not worth getting a new phone. This is because there is very little difference in the 8 and the 7. The two biggest differences are probably the wireless charging, and the glass back that the iPhone 8 has. Then of course, there is the new and improved camera, but that is mostly the same. The iPhone 8 also come in only three colors: silver, light gold, and space grey. But unlike the iPhone X, the 8 has two sizes, the plus and the regular. The iPhone 8 is a good phone for someone who wants or needs a new phone, and who doesn't want a new, really fancy phone. For those who like the concepts around the X, there will surely be people out there who would love your feedback on it.
If your not a person who loves phones, then there is also the option of getting an Apple Watch. The Apple Watch series 3 came out along with the new phones, and it's pretty cool. It now has cellular connection, so it no longer needs a phone to accompany it wherever it goes. It is also waterproof, so you can go to the beach or in the pool with it. The Apple Watch will certainly be an interesting purchase. Therefore, no matter what new device you may want, there will always be countless amounts of choices to choose from.
