Apple has once again unveiled what they have been working on and have introduced the iPhone 8, iPhone 8+, iPhone X, Apple TV 4K and the new Apple Watch 3. Dean Murphy, Alan Vickers and Karl Madden discuss the announcement. Alan is a little dubious that FaceID will be better than TouchID. Karl’s very happy with the upgraded 4K movies and Dean is a little poorer.
