Apple Rapid Security Response update

Apple is expected to introduce tomorrow a super iPhone called the iPhone X, to mark the iconic phone’s 10 year anniversary.

A new 8 and 8 Plus will also reportedly be announced tomorrow offering better battery life and faster processors that the iPhone 7 series.

The iPhone X will be a luxury model with reports pricing it at $1,000 to $1,300.  It will be the first iPhone with an OLED display and that display will be a large 5.8 inches. The Wall Street Journal says the phone is expected to allow wireless charging and include facial recognition to unlock the phone. The home button is apparently gone and the phone will be filled with 3D sensors to run augmented reality apps.

The new OLED display will cost about double that of previous iPhone displays, accounting for some of the  price bump in the iPhone X.  Although Engadget points out that the most expensive iPhone to date is already at $969 in the 256GB version of the 7 Plus.

All three of the new iPhones may use 6-core processors, says Engadget.

Also, tomorrow, Apple is expected to announce the first Apple Watch that can run on 4G LTE, so it can work independently from an iPhone.  Also on the roster is a new Apple 4K streaming media player.

Apple’s press event will be held Tuesday at 10 am Pacific /1 pm Eastern.
