You won’t be able to get the new face-watching iPhone X until November, but you also won’t have to wait nearly as long for software updates to any Apple Watch, iPhone, or Mac you already own, nor will you have to wait as long for the new iPhone 8, Series 3 Watch, and Apple TV announced today.
The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are the direct successors to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Only these units have wireless charging and improved cameras. They’ll both go on sale 15 September (8am GMT), and ship 22 September.
The Apple Watch Series 3, with a mobile data connection, W2 wireless chip, and faster processor, also goes on sale 15 September and will ship 22 September.
Same with the 4K Apple TV, the first Apple TV to hand 4K and HDR content. If you want it, be prepared to stay up late and pre-order 15 September with a delivery date of 22 September.
iOS 11, which will include the cool ARKit, a redesigned Notification Center, and turn your iPad into a laptop, will be available 19 September.
macOS High Sierra, the latest OS for Apple laptops and desktops, will arrive on 25 September. It will be of particular interest to photographers, as the app Photos has seen some major improvements that make it nearly as good as pricier options like Adobe Lightroom or Capture One.
WatchOS 4 promises aren’t quite as exceptional to non-watch users, but improved heartrate monitor and fitness apps could let the Apple Watch continue to comepete against watches with far better battery life, like the new Fitbit Ionic. There are also new watch faces to look forward to, including a super informative one based on Siri. It will be available 19 September.
