Wonder what size the iPhone X is going to be? Are they going to just have a Plus model?

Hope the wireless charging rumours are true too

Looks like the 8 and 8 Plus will just be an evolution of the 7 while the X will be the real revolutionary phone.

I'd expect next year iPhone 9 or whatever to carry on from the X's design with an iPhone 9SE will continue the traditional form factor.

I'm betting on an impractical 'X' shaped phone.

Losing the finger print sensor feels like a step backwards to me.

Ideally they'd put the fingerprint sensor on the back like the Pixel. I know some silly people would be disappointed if they copied the likes of LG by doing that but it works really well.

Really don't care about fingerprint scanners, hopefully the show something "revolutionary" in terms of Augmented Reality.

That IKEA app they showed at WWDC looked incredible, as did the Pokémon Go update.

I don't know why I'm watching this. It's always dull as gooseberry fool.

Well, it's what was expected but the new watch seems quite a bit better. Will probably update my OG watch.

So is the new watch basically a phone on a watch?

Probably pointed out, but you would think it would be better to wait til the iPhone 10 comes out before calling it iPhone X.

Yes. It is Sci-Fi realised. The next step will be to include FaceTime then it really will be like the movies. A call where you talk to the phone on your wrist!

I'm not getting a new phone this year, but have a passing interest on the new ones to see what tech I might get my hands on next year.

I agree with Cyburn though, the iPhone X should come after iPhone 9. Stupid Apple.

Apple trying to get 4K (and HDR) over like it hasn't been around on every device for ages.
