It's that time of year again! Time for the new set of iPhones to be announced! Tim Cook kicked off today's event live from the Steve Jobs Theater, inside Apple's Cupertino, California headquarters.
Lately, Apple has been making a brand new style of iPhone every other year, with the years in-between being "S" years, where only slight adjustments are made to the previous years model. Since 2018 has fallen on an "S" year only a few changes were made to the 2018 iPhones.
One thing to note though, is that Apple has decided to release 3 variations of the iPhone X this year. All have updated cameras, include the A12 Bionic chip, and have no home button. The phones are also P68 rated, meaning they can handle being in up to 2 meters of water for 30 minutes without damage.
