Apple iPhone X, iPhone 8 event liveblog

Today is the day. Apple is about to unveil its long-anticipated iPhone X, the tenth-generation iPhone, and we will liveblog the Apple iPhone X event as it happens.

Our liveblog starts at 10am PT | 12pm CT | 1pm ET | 5pm GMT, so make sure to bookmark this page and come back here around then.

We expect the big star of the show to be the iPhone X, an all-out premium model with a futuristic "bezel-less" OLED screen, and an all-new glass and metal design.

Alongside the new iPhone X, Apple is also said to lift the cover off an iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, two phones that should have a glass back like the iPhone X, but not the "bezel-less" tricks. The two are expected to be a gradual upgrade over the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Whatever it is, you can tune in to our Apple iPhone X and iPhone 8 event liveblog right here.

If the benchmarks are true about the processor the A11 is pretty impressive. I wonder if those benchmarks are true or not. Even for $1k they are going to be sold out and hard to come by...

What would you do with the marginally higher score when that s**te OS won't even let you download a video?

I'm more interested about the new Kawasaki Z900RS & The new highly teased Ducati V4 than iPhone X (or whatever it's called)!

Who cares about bloody toys like smartphones when a Ducati with a V4 is rumbling inside your head, eh?

G'Day!

One of the first things I'm rolling my eyes at: Calling Apple Stores "Town Squares".

Okay.

Let people use what they want. I wouldn't spend that much money on a phone but others can.

On a note, I'm just waiting for autistic brand loyalty wars and the inevitable wrongthink argumentative piece by one of the authors here.

"Apple Stores are now referred to inside Apple as "town halls"

"Town Squares": Stop showing up to work intoxicated.

Hey this is the day where pronouns apparently matter so, yeah, don't go around calling them "Apple Stores" in Canada or you will be arrested!
