Apple conducted its anniversary edition launch event in its new headquarters, Apple Park in Cupertino, California. The event started at 10am PDT or 10:30pm for Indian viewers.Apple revealed an array of new gadgets starting from Apple Watch, Apple TV 4K to iPhone 8 and iPhone X. iPhone X was the mega launch most of us were waiting for. Despite the revolutionary design, Apple failed to surprise the gathering as most of the details regarding the launch was leaked before time.
However, Apple's demonstration of these new features made the entire event much more interesting. The FaceID, Animojis and Augmented Reality kept our eyes glued to the screen.
Here are all the highlights from the Apple Event:
Camera can shoot in slo-mo with 1080p at 240 frames per second
Just absorbed this: #iPhone8 can do 4K at 60fps, as well as 1080p at 240fps. Shooting video on this thing is gonna be *fun*.- Michael Fisher (@theMrMobile) September 12, 2017

The year 2007 is noted in history as one the biggest turning points in the tech-world, the year when Steve Jobs held the first iPhone up in the air as a combination of a phone, an iPod and an breakthrough communicator device. Come to think about it, it was a breakthrough moment in the company's history. Now, Tim Cook claimed to have realized Apple's long standing goal of creating an all-screen iPhone with the iPhone X.

Apple's iPhone has been the most successful product line-up for the company. Not only does the company sell the product in extremely high quantities but also enjoys a dominant position in the premium segment which yields higher returns.
The launch of iPhone X will be another jewel in Apple's crown. Since iPhone 6, the company had not launched any substantial update to their iPhone line-up. The past three iterations have been similar in design and came with minor upgrades. All this was justified in the name of Apple's tenth anniversary special edition iPhone.
