The event began with the voice of Steve Jobs, talking about how Apple will hold on to its legacy.

Who's going to rush to buy the iPhone X? The new OLED screen covers nearly the entire front of the gadget, with a new security Face ID feature included to unlock the phone.

Others pointed out that the price of Apple stock on the NASDAQ stock exchange fell as soon as Cook announced the new phones.

What else is new?

The iPhone X is also water and dust resistant. The iPhone 8 Plus features dual 12-megapixel cameras and introduces Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting, bringing dramatic studio lighting effects to iPhone, allowing customers to capture stunning portraits with a shallow depth of field effect in five different lighting styles. Presumably that feature is powered by Apple's iCloud service, which already connects iMessage and other features across your iPhone and iPad.

Wireless charging is nothing new and is a popular feature on Samsung Galaxy devices over the past few years.

How much will I have to fork out to get one?

Apple stock slumped 0.4 percent to $160.82 today after it was revealed the iPhone X would not make its official debut until November 3, CNBC reports.

What are Animojis? One of the fun additions is the creation of animated emojis, or Animojis, where users can speak and have digital characters move as they did. The leaders also spoke about how its new campus was built with a number of environmentally friendly features.
