An Apple event held yesterday, September 12, at Apple’s new campus – the Apple Park in Cupertino California. The event took place at the 1000 seat capacity Steve Jobs theatre which makes it the first Apple event at the theatre.

The event can be said to be one of the most anticipated event of the year as it was the iPhone’s 10th year anniversary and according to several rumours, three new iPhones were to be unveiled and it included a special iPhone Edition to mark the anniversary.

The event came, and alas!, most of the rumours checked out. There was indeed a special iPhone – the iPhone X and two iPhone 8 – the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. That’s not all.

A new version of Apple Watch was also revealed – Apple Watch Series 3 as well as a new Apple TV with 4K display.

See pictures from yesterday’s event – pictures of the theatre, the iPhone 8 pictures, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, release date, pre-order date, and selling price as obtained from CNET
