Tech stocks fluctuated on Tuesday afternoon after Apple Inc. (AAPL) laid out its latest product launches, including new models of its smartphone.
Apple unveiled its highly anticipated iPhone 8 and iPhone X models during a press event with no major surprises on Tuesday, Sept. 12. The iPhone 8 has a steel-reinforced glass design and stronger material to prevent cracks in what Apple calls its "most durable ever." The 8 has a 4.7-inch display and the 8 Plus has a 5.5-inch display. The latest model will be available on Sept. 22.
The buzzier iPhone X was revealed as a new model in tribute to the original iPhone's 10-year anniversary. The newest model is comprised of a front and back glass screen held together by a stainless steel band. The 5.8-inch display has 458 pixels per inch, the most ever for an iPhone. The new model relies on face ID for access to the phone instead of touch ID in current models.
Apple also unveiled a new Apple TV which provides higher resolution, 4K movies and TV shows via iTunes and its latest version of its smartwatch, the Apple Watch 3. The new watch now provides cellular service and will be able to take calls and stream music.
