Apple's new iPhone will cost, but users are prepared to pay

Alongside the premium-priced iPhone X, Apple also added wireless charging to two new standard iPhone 8 models.

It also announced a brand new Watch, the Apple Watch Series 3 which could stop you from having a heart attack. After months of rumours and speculation, Apple has scheduled the launch its new iPhone 8 - along with other products - for 10 a.m.

According to Philip W Schiller, Apple's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, the iPhone 8 cameras and the A11 Bionic chip have been calibrated for Augmented Reality (AR).

As Vox reported, the launch "is also a ideal time to demonstrate the capabilities of the next version of Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 11, which has been available to developers in beta mode for some time now but which will come to consumers soon".

The iPhone 8 comes in silver, gray and gold, offering 64GB or 256GB in available space.

Apple is bringing out a new charging plate called AirPower, will charge the iPhone, Apple Watch and Airpods all at once. It will start at $999 at launch for the base 64GB model, making it $300 more expensive than the base iPhone 8. 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.

Live stream: Apple's live stream is available via a dedicated channel on the Apple TV set-top box or the Safari browser on OS X (10.8.5 and above) and iOS devices (iOS 7 and above).

Apple is coming out with a new smartwatch created to be less dependent on the iPhone. Wearing a hat, glasses or new hairstyle can't fool the FaceID system that also works with Apple Pay. "The iPhone X is the realization of that vision", said Jony Ive, Apple's chief design officer.

Most smartwatches with cellular support are huge thanks to the need to pack in antennas and other necessary components, but the Series 3 will be the same size as the Series 2.

As for cameras, the iPhone 8 has a more power-efficient 12MP snapper, with faster autofocus in low light conditions and a new colour filter.

The iPhone 8 will feature a 12 megapixel camera, while the 8 plus will include 12 megapixel dual cameras.

Since the original watch's debut in April 2015, Apple has been trying to enable more stand-alone features.

Usually the iPhone releases a new design one year and the next release a slight upgrade to latest model, therefore this year we should only be treated to an iPhone 7S and 7S Plus.

Apple TV 4K model will cost $179. Pre-orders on the phone begin on September 15 and go on sale a week later, on the 22. One of the most useful new features is the Files app, which organizes all of the files on your iPhone as well as files stored in other locations such as iCloud and Dropbox. CEO Tim Cook called it "the biggest leap forward" since the first iPhone. The Watch Series 1 remains available at $249.
