News from Apple – level 2

18-09-2017 15:00

On Tuesday 12th, Apple introduced its newest products: a new Apple TV, an Apple Watch, and three new iPhones.

All three new iPhones, the iPhone 8, the 8 Plus, and the X have an all-glass design, which supports wireless charging. The iPhone X is the company’s tenth iPhone, and it called it ‘the future of the smartphone’.

The phone does not have iPhone’s iconic home button. You do not unlock it with your finger, as it recognises your face instead. In the US it will sell for $999.

The Series 3 Apple Watch now also comes in a model with LTE built in. You can make calls and stream 40 million songs from your wrist. It will also be able to warn you when it recognises a heart problem.

Difficult words: introduce (show people something for the first time), LTE (a 4G mobile communications standard), recognise (identify, measure).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
