Apple had her annual big event for the first time at the Steve Jobs Theater and announced the new iPhone 8 and iPhone X, as well as updates to the Apple Watch and Apple TV.

The new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were announced as the event and here are some interesting things you should know about them

1. No home button or Touch ID

The iPhone X is all screen as it has always been the vision of Apple to create such a device. Since there’s no home button, the Touch ID option is also not available on this device.

2. Beautiful all screen design

The iPhone X introduces a revolutionary design with a stunning all-screen display that precisely follows the curve of the device, clear to the elegantly rounded corners. The all-glass front and back feature the most durable glass ever in a smartphone in silver or space gray, while a highly polished, surgical-grade stainless steel band seamlessly wraps around and reinforces iPhone X.
