New Apple Products Fall 2017 – iPhone X: The future has arrived
It was exactly a week ago at the beautiful Steve Jobs Theater of the Apple Park in Cupertino that New Apple Products Fall 2017 were unveiled. Here is a summary. Long, but not too complex.
New Apple Products Fall 2017: Apple TV 4K brings the magic of home theater into 4k and HDR
I have at home one of the first Apple TV (the 2nd or 3rd generation I think). But at its conference, Apple introduced its all-new Apple TV 4K. A box and not a television designed to offer an exceptional cinematic experience at home. With the support of 4K and High Dynamic Range (HDR), Apple’s newest model features incredibly sharp and sharp images, richer colors, more real and more details in dark and bright scenes. With this all-new model, you can enjoy a growing selection of HDR 4K movies on iTunes. If you are like me, an iTunes user, you will get automatic upgrades of your HD titles to the 4K HDR versions when they become available. Apple TV 4K will also offer 4K HDR content from popular video services, including Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
“Bring the magic of the cinema straight to your living room with the new Apple TV 4K,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “Customers will love watching stunning 4K HDR movies from an impressive catalog on iTunes, while also getting automatic upgrades of 4K HDR movies already in their iTunes library and enjoying 4K content on services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, coming soon.”
4K et HDR : What’s the difference
The combination of 4K HDR on Apple TV 4K will allow viewers to have sharper images, richer colors, and much larger details in dark and bright scenes (image for simulation and dramatic effect only). Support for Dolby Vision and HDR10 ensures that users can enjoy incredible TV shows and movies on any HDR TV.
Always producing at the highest possible resolution allows viewers to get the most out of their TV, whether it’s an older high definition TV or the latest 4K Dolby Vision OLED. It’s interesting for me that only has an old Samsung TV HD 720p of 2004. The automatic detection of the capabilities of a 4K TV optimizes the installation for the best quality image.
Siri and the TV app
The TV app will collect all your favorite shows and movies, and Siri will search and access content on Apple TV using just your voice. This future application will extend to seven countries including Canada (We Love It) by the end of the year, which will facilitate the discovery of viewers and television shows from multiple applications in one place.
The TV application will support more than 60 services on Apple TV and iOS devices, with even more content. Whether you’re at home or on the go, it’s easy to discover and watch TV shows and movies from multiple applications in one place. It would be interesting to see TV channels as an RDS or TVA take the step. Or have the HBO Now so do not wait to see Game of Thrones, it’s a little my flat, the offer is still tiny here.
Apple TV at home
You probably suspect that the Apple TV 4K is the perfect companion for the iPhone and the iPad, I do not know if it will work with the old versions of iPad comem that I own. It also brings family and friends together for an incredible viewing experience.
With the support of AirPlay 2, later this year, Apple TV will be able to control several AirPlay 2 compatible speakers as well as your home theater speakers to create the ultimate music experience.
Apple TV goes beyond entertainment to contribute to Apple’s vision on smart home. Since Apple TV is still at home, it is perfectly suited to serve as a home for all your HomeKit accessories, allowing remote access and automated control (for example, turning on lights automatically at Sun).
the Apple TV 4K starts at $ 229 (CA) for 32GB or $ 249 (CA) for 64GB.
You can order both Apple TV 4K models since Friday, with availability from Friday 22 September. For more information, visit apple.com/tv. I think the Apple TV could be a great match with the new Samsung TV [The Frame] we were talking about in the fall magazine.
New Apple Products Fall 2017: Apple Watch Series 3 adds cellular and brings integrated improvements to health and fitness
Apple introduced its all-new Apple Watch Series 3 (I own the Series 2, and very satisfied), adding cellular data. Whether you’re out for a race, at the pool or just want to be more active throughout their day, the Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular allows you to stay connected, make calls, receive text without iPhone nearby. The third-generation Apple Watch is an incredible health and fitness companion with intelligent drive characteristics, 50 meters water resistance and a new barometric altimeter that measures relative elevation. The Apple Watch Series 3 comes in two models, one with GPS and cellular, and one with GPS, both with a dual-core processor of 70% faster and a new chip without thread.
“We believe the addition of cellular will transform the way people use Apple Watch, providing a new sense of freedom since they can stay connected with or without their iPhone,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer. “Apple Watch Series 3 combined with the power of watchOS 4 is the ultimate device for a healthy life.”
Listen to 40 million songs directly from the wrist.

The heart rate application offers more detailed heart rate measurements.
The watchOS 4 operating system has an updated heart rate application, providing a better understanding of heart rate, including measurements during rest, training, recovery, walking and breathing sessions . You may also choose to receive a notification when your heart rate is elevated above a specific threshold while it is inactive. Other features include a proactive design that displays information that users need most throughout the day, an improved Workout application with a new interface, a customized HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) more.

New Apple Products Fall 2017: iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus: a new generation of iPhone
This is a new generation of iPhone, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which was announced at the event last Tuesday. This new iPhone has a new design in glass and aluminum in three beautiful colors made from the most durable glass ever used in a smart phone. We add the Retina HD screens and the A11 Bionic chip, and it’s perfect for the augmented reality experience. The world’s most popular camera is enhanced with single and dual cameras with portrait lighting on iPhone 8 Plus, and the wireless charging offers a new powerful capacity to the iPhone. This is particularly interesting for me who owns the iPhone 6.
“iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are a new generation of iPhone that improve on everything we love about iPhone,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have new glass and aluminum designs, new Retina HD displays and A11 Bionic — the smartest chip ever in a smartphone. Packed with more advanced cameras with Portrait mode and Portrait Lighting, and the highest quality video capture in a smartphone, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus enable the freedom of wireless charging, all with AR optimization like no phone ever before.”
New glass and aluminum design
The iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus feature a beautiful glass design at the back made from the most durable glass in a smart phone in three new finishes: gray, silver and gold. The glass finish is made using a seven-layer color process for precise shade and opacity, providing rich color depth with a colored, water-resistant, aerospace-grade aluminum bezel dust.
New HD Retina displays
The new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch Retina HD displays with the addition of True Tone allow you to adjust the screen’s white balance to match the surrounding light for a more natural and similar vision experience. that of paper. The Retina HD dynamic display of the wide color range offers the best color accuracy in the industry. The redesigned stereo speakers provide up to 25 percent higher sound and deeper bass, allowing for richer music, videos and speakerphone calls.
New camera for better photos and video
The world’s most popular camera is enhanced with a 12-megapixel camera with a larger, faster sensor, a new color filter and deeper pixels. A new image signal processor offers advanced pixel processing, high color capture, faster autofocus in dim lights and better HDR photos, while a new Quad LED True Tone Flash LED slow synchronization results in more uniform backgrounds and shades. It would have been interesting by contrast to increase the pixels in the front camera of the iPhone.
Built for a wireless future
The glass design allows for a world class wireless charging solution. The wireless charger works with the established Qi ecosystem, including two new Belkin and Mophie wireless charging mats available from Apple.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available in 64GB and 256GB models from CA $ 929 on Apple website, Apple stores and Apple Authorized Resellers (prices may vary).
New Apple Products Fall 2017: The future begins with the iPhone X
That’s what everyone was waiting for. In its wave of new Apple 2017, Apple announced the arrival of the iPhone X (Pronounce 10), the future of the smart phone. Designed with a magnificent all-glass design with a 5.8-inch Super Retina display, a Bionic A11 chip, wireless charging and an enhanced rear camera with dual optical image stabilization.
The iPhone X phone offers a new innovative and secure way for customers to unlock, authenticate and pay using Face ID, activated by the new TrueDepth camera. The iPhone X will be available for pre-order starting Friday, October 27, and in stores as of Friday, November 3rd.
“For more than a decade, our intention has been to create an iPhone that is all display. The iPhone X is the realization of that vision,” said Jony Ive, Apple’s chief design officer. “With the introduction of iPhone ten years ago, we revolutionized the mobile phone with Multi-Touch. iPhone X marks a new era for iPhone — one in which the device disappears into the experience.”
“iPhone X is the future of the smartphone. It is packed with incredible new technologies, like the innovative TrueDepth camera system, beautiful Super Retina display and super fast A11 Bionic chip with neural engine,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “iPhone X enables fluid new user experiences — from unlocking your iPhone with Face ID, to playing immersive AR games, to sharing Animoji in Messages — it is the beginning of the next ten years for iPhone.”
Beautiful All-Screen design
With the iPhone X, Appple introduces a revolutionary design with a superb screen that precisely follows the curve of the device, evident in elegantly rounded corners. The front and back glass have the toughest glass ever in a smartphone (the same as the iPhone 8) in silver or gray space, while a highly polished and surgical grade stainless steel bracelet gets stronger and enhances the iPhone X. A seven-layer color process provides precision for color shades and opacity on the finish of the glass, and a reflective optical layer enhances rich colors, making the design as elegant and durable , while maintaining resistance to water and dust.
Remarkable Super Retina Display
The beautiful 5.8-inch Super Retina screen is the first OLED panel that meets the iPhone’s standards, with amazing colors, genuine blacks, a contrast ratio of one million for one and a wide color support with the best color management system in a smart phone. The HDR screen supports Dolby Vision and HDR10, which makes the photo and video content even more incredible. The addition of True Tone dynamically adjusts the white balance of the display to match the surrounding light for a more natural and paper-like viewing experience.
Family gestures allow customers to navigate naturally and intuitively on the iPhone X. iOS 11, the brand new operating system, is redesigned to take full advantage of the Super Retina display and replaces the Home button with gestures fast and fluid, allowing users to navigate naturally and intuitively on the iPhone X. Simply slide back to go home from anywhere.
Face ID, a Powerful and Secure Authentication System
Face ID revolutionizes authentication on iPhone X, using a state-of-the-art TrueDepth camera system consisting of a spotlight, an infrared camera and a flood illuminator, and is powered by A11 Bionic to map and recognize with precision a face. These advanced depth detection technologies work together to unlock secure iPhone, activate Apple Pay, access secure applications and many new features.
Face ID searches over 30,000 IR (infrared) points invisible. The IR image and the dot pattern are pushed through the neural networks to create a mathematical model of your face and send the data to the secure enclave to confirm a match while adapting to physical changes in appearance over time. All registered facial information is protected by the secure enclave so that the data is extremely secure, while all processing is done on the device and not on the cloud to protect the privacy of users. Face ID only unlocks iPhone X when clients view it and are designed to prevent falsification by photos or masks.
Reinvented front and rear cameras with portrait lighting
The new 7 megapixel TrueDepth camera that allows Face ID to integrate a wide color capture, automatic image stabilization and precise exposure control, and brings portrait mode to the front camera for amazing selfies with a depth of field effect.
The iPhone X also features a dual camera system with two megapixels redesigned with double optical image stabilization. The ƒ / 1.8 aperture on the wide-angle camera adds to an improved ƒ / 2.4 aperture on the telephoto camera for better photos and videos. A new color filter, deeper pixels and an improved image signal processor designed by Apple offer advanced pixel processing, high color capture, fast autofocus in low light and better HDR photos. A new Quad LED True Tone light offers twice the uniformity of light and includes slow synchronization, resulting in more uniform backgrounds and shades.
The new iPhone’s X camera features a faster and faster sensor, a new color filter, deeper pixels and OIS for capturing dynamic photos and videos with more detail.
The cameras on iPhone X are customized for the defined AR experience. Each camera is calibrated individually, with new gyroscopes and accelerometers for accurate motion tracking. The A11 Bionic processor manages global tracking, scene recognition and GPU allows incredible graphics at 60fps, while the image signal processor uses real-time lighting estimation. With ARKit, iOS developers can take advantage of the TrueDepth camera and rear cameras to create games and applications that deliver fantastically immersive and fluid experiences that go far beyond the screen.
The Animojis put life in the Emojis
IPhone X users can record and send Animoji messages that reflect their facial expressions. IPhone X users can record and send Animoji messages that reflect their facial expressions.
The TrueDepth camera brings the emoji to life in a fun way with Animoji. By working with A11 Bionic, the TrueDepth camera captures and analyzes more than 50 different facial muscle movements, then animates these expressions in a dozen different Animoji, including a panda, unicorn and robot. Available as an iMessage application preinstalled on iPhone X, customers can record and send Animoji messages with their voice that can smile, frown and more.
The new AirPower carpet designed by Apple, coming in 2018, can charge iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods simultaneously.
