Ten years after the launch of its iconic iPhone smartphone , Apple unveiled its new models on Tuesday to officially launch Apple Park, its new campus that is expected to spark a new era for the technology giant.
Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, will release Apple Park’s Steve Jobs Auditorium, which willhost 1,000 people, to announce the new generation of iPhone that, as usual in this type of events, comes preceded by numerous rumors and predictions about what may be its main novelties.
This past weekend, a great leak from Apple, collected by all the specialized press of the world of technology, gave clues about the new iPhone, which according to this information would be called iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.
While the first two would be advanced and improved versions of the iPhone 7, which was marketed last year, the real innovation and step forward Apple would be in the iPhone X,a model whose price could exceed $ 1,000.
While waiting for today to reveal all the details, the iPhone X would renounce the frames and the home button to make the most of the surface of the screen , which would also have OLED technology.
The suppression of the home button, which in the previous iPhone held a good number of functions, could be covered by a variable touch bar at the bottom of the screen and new uses in the buttons on the sides of the device.
According to reports by KGI Securities analyst Ming-chi Kuo, the iPhone X will have models in three colors: black, gold and silver.
In addition, the iPhone X would replace touch ID technology with Face ID, a new form of recognition that detects the user’s face to access the device.

Some sources also point out that iPhone X, whose RAM would be in all 3 gigs, could support a battery charger without cables.
On the other hand, media such as The Wall Street Journal have reported in recent days that the manufacture of the new iPhone is going at a slower pace than expected, which could lead to delays in the delivery of devices to its buyers.
In addition to the new iPhone, Apple is expected to unveil other products tomorrow as a 4K resolution television or the third series of its smart watch Apple Watch.
In any case, this Tuesday’s presentation will be very relevant to the company for both content and location, as it will be the first official event open to Apple media at its new Apple Park headquarters, located in the Californian city of Cupertino.
