Apple chief executive officer Tim Cook unveiled the Apple Watch in September 2014, banking on the product being the company's next big category.

Apple Inc. also is expected to announce minor upgrades to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. When you swipe up from the screen, you'll find an LTE icon from the Control Center to signify that you're online. That means no more home button, relying instead on a digital button.

Since the original watch's debut in April 2015, Apple has been trying to enable more stand-alone features. They also still have a little used "voice call " function. Various leaks have indicated the new phone will feature a sharper display, a so-called OLED screen that will extend from edge to edge of the device, thus eliminating the exterior gap, or "bezel", that now surrounds most phone screens. You can use Face ID to log into your iPhone X, and Apple talked about how this facial recognition technology can't be tricked by photos or super-realistic masks of your face. Rumour has it that the flagship iPhone 8 will start from $850, which is around N305,711. The phones feature stereo speakers and a new, more powerful six-core CPU chip.

The theatre, never before open to the public, features an expansive glass-enclosed lobby, with two massive white stone staircases leading down to the auditorium.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus still retains the same old design of Apple's iPhones since the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Both models come in 64GB and 256GB versions, with the iPhone 8 starting at $699 and the iPhone Plus at $799. You can place your pre-order on October 23.

While Apple lauded that the new back-cameras on the iPhone X and iPhone 8 were "calibrated for AR", - something undoubtedly true of any camera running ARKit - the only mentions of model-specific AR features were confined to redesigned front-facing camera tracking on the iPhone X thanks to the new camera array which includes an infrared camera, flood illuminator and dot projector.

Face ID works if you change your hair or put on a hat, and if you wear glasses. The sizes - 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch - are the same.

Apple spent a lot of time showcasing the phone's ability with augmented reality, including games. Apple shares rose 1.1% to $163.30 after the company discussed the Watch. Instant Markup lets you take a screenshot and annotate it with the Pencil, and a "Mark Through PDF" option lets you convert any screen to a PDF file that you can write on. Bernstein analyst Toni Sacconaghi predicts the top-end model will cost $US899, though other analysts expect it to top $US1,000.

iOS 11 will be available on September 19. It costs the same as the iPhone 7 did. Pre-orders on the phone begin on September 15 and go on sale a week later, on the 22.

Additionally, Apple has also introduced a new gray color in ceramic, and a bunch of new bands.

Apple also introduced an upgraded version of the Apple TV capable of handling 4K video and equipped with special colour-enhancement technology.
