The risk of fracture, a disadvantage of this design improvement of lacquer , is no longer confined to device's screen. In contrast, the iPhone X is expected to take a huge hit in profitability - despite its hefty price tag - because it's insane expensive to build.

We already know the iPhone X will be the most powerful - and the most expensive - iPhone ever.

The iPhone 8 was put to the water test and was dropping in water initially for about 30 minutes but the phone was still working. The iPhone X has a superior rear-facing camera subsystem, a dramatically better front-facing camera subsystem with 3D sensing technology that Apple calls a "TrueDepth" camera, and support for new features such as Apple's animated emojis. And that includes the iPhone 8 Plus, which you'd expect to house a bigger cell.

The larger battery pack in the iPhone X should translate to more battery life than both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

Numbers don't mean a great deal to Apple, which never likes to flaunt a processor's clock speed or the RAM count and battery capacity of a new iPhone or iPad. On the other hand, the growing hype around the iPhone X works in Apple's favor.

The New England Patriots will be perhaps the most closely watched team during Sunday's pre-game formalities. And there's little doubt that Deshaun Watson will see things on Sunday that never occurred to him.

Meanwhile, Apple has asked suppliers to slow down delivery of the iPhone X components, according to a report from DigiTimes. The analyst had also predicted about Apple removing fingerprint sensor from all of its iPhone devices including iPhone 8 before the launch of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.

Along with the iPhone 8, preorders for the new Watch 3 have also been made available in the listings starting September 22.

iPhone 8 uses iOS 11 with the Apple A11 Bionic chipset. For people who aren't used to spending more than $700 to $800 for a phone, this can be far more than their wallet can afford.

The iPhone 8 Plus retails at Rs 73,000 in India while the smaller iPhone 8 comes with a starting price of Rs 64,000. The new version starts at $799, compared with $769 for last year's model.

The iPhone maker will still be cashing in a huge profits on its new smartphones because of the increase in price is much higher than the climb in the investments on components.
