    If the you-tubers don’t standup about the high prices of the iPhone, Apple will continue to kill us on price. No Pro-motion on a 1000+ iPhone! That’s a huge missed! It’s an iPhone 8 plus for me!

    Apple is sitting on $200,000,000,000 with a B in cash, and AppleCare goes up to 200??!! They are headed the way of PC graphics cards.

    They are gonna have to get control of the price! I have been with Apple since Macintosh, but these prices are outrageous!! AppleCare for 3 years should be included!

    the iphone x looks great, however why even call it a phone anymore. They need to call take a risk and have courage. NOT even call it a phone anymore. you know? just call it the islate or pocket mac or whatever

    I'm still not keen on the protruding camera nipple. And I don't like the 'ears' at the top of the screen. IPhone 8 is more of a 7S.

    after years the finger scanner works so well, then we have to adapt to new weird face id, that's should be app feature no system feature, should not force user to use it.

    I watched the keynote and I'm a huge Apple fan. Might get the 8+. The X was too expensive and didn't offer enough worthy features for the price point. The best thing about today's event was going into the steve jobs theater. The theater exceeded my wildest dreams!

    I can see it now… Someone will steal Daisy Ridley's iPhone X, then will a Rey figure break into her phone and spoil the rest of Star Wars for us. It should only take them a few more seconds longer than getting her finger print.

    I am not going to buy either phone because my wallet and their worth, but I do dig both phones. My favorite iPhone 8 and X feature was the video recording at 4K 60fps. I own a 6s plus and 4K at 30fps is just not worth it being my default setting. So my phone is set at 1080p at 60fps.

    My guess on naming in the future will be 2 different lines for a couple of years. The lines will be separated by Numbers and Roman Numerals to distinguish the difference.
    Next Year:
    8s and Xs
    After that:
    9 and XI,
    9s and XIs
    And so on.

    Does it include Apple Care PLUS or regular? "Apple Care" without the plus is just 1 year manufacturer warranty.

    The watch is $10 a month, but requires that you have a iPhone 6 or higher. Remember when they said you will have the same number? That is because having a iPhone is required. So the watch will not replace the phone, but will be an accessory to your existing iPhone.

    The iPhone X is so expensive, but I think people, especially in the U.S., will pay it. I expect Apple's revenue in Q4 2017 and Q1 2018 to increase. Perhaps it is time to buy some apple stock…

    Apple always has a keynote at the end of October or early November, that's when they'll do the Homepod update

    The front camera on X eats up that area and cuts away that area from the photos and videos which is a real bummer! Hope they would have a way to opt for pure rectangular shape and leave those corners to signal, etc.

    The bezel around the screen, WHY? Everyone is doing an Edge to Edge and Apple wants you to wait 2 or 4 more years before they give you a true edge to edeg screen. They remove the headphone jack and now the home button and people must be really stupid if Apple keeps taking away these important features and wanting you to pay more. To me the IPhone 6s is still the best option. Still have a headphone jack and a home button. Apple at some point will learn the home button is like Microsoft removing the start button and realized with Windows 10 they need to out it back. You can put the button on the back make it virtual but you need a home button. This face unlock is not gonna work. You know how many people are going to break up over this? Now you have to use a pin. If I an cheating on my girl all she has to do while I am sleeping is get my phone and hold it up to my face to unlock it. Not cool. I am never getting the IPhone X. I have decided I am going with the LG V30.

    As soon as the Note 8 launched, a collective wave of people jumped on it for having a price point of 930$, including some youtube tech reviewers, and here we are at the iPhone event where the iPhone that everyones is going to buy (because your not buying an iPhone 8 after you saw the X) is priced at 999$ and it's all quiet on the front. Either I'm crazy or Apple truly has the best marketing strategy known to mankind for this. . . . . .

    Did you guys not study Roman numerals in school? It's not the iPhone "ex" but the iPhone Ten (it's the 10th anniversary of the original one).
