UPDATE: Sept. 12, 2:55 P.M. EST

The iPhone X (aka the iPhone 10) will not feature a home button—you’ll be able to get back to the home screen by swiping up from the bottom, as The Guardian reports. Instead of a Touch ID, it’ll feature a “Face ID."

Not to mention, the iPhone X has two hours extra battery life than the iPhone 7. It’ll be available for preorder Oct. 27, and they start shipping Nov. 3.

Apple has also designed a charging mat that can charge iPhone, Watch and AirPods—all at once. They call it AirPower, according to Tech Crunch.

Today’s Apple event is currently underway, and we’re learning all about their newest phones, watches, TVs and more.

One exciting announcement? The iPhone 8 will feature a newly designed ISP, which, as Apple explains, is “one of its secret weapons in photography," according to Tech Crunch.

There will be “faster low light autofocus, better pixel processor, and first time ever hardware multiband noise reduction.”

Even more, for fellow music lovers, the iPhone 8 will feature speakers that are 25 percent louder than the current speakers on the iPhone 7. Plus, the new phone, now all-glass, will come in Silver, Space Grey and Rose Gold.

Not to mention, the iPhone 8 is the “first phone designed for Augmented Reality,” The Guardian reports. 

And if you’re one to drop your phone? You’re in luck: Tech Crunch are reporting that Apple has explained that there is a “deeper strengthening layer” in the glass, making it “the most durable in a smartphone.” It will also support wireless charging.

Tech Crunch last reported that the iPhone 8 will be available to order Sept. 15, and they’ll be available Tuesday, Sept. 19. iOS 11 will be available Sept. 19 as well.

Keep up with their previous announcements below:

If you have an Apple Watch series 3, you will be able to stream Apps Music over a built-in cellular connection, as The Guardian has reported. WatchOS 4 is out Sept. 19.

Apple Stores will now be called “Apple Town Squares,” The Guardian is reporting, in the brand’s effort to create a sense of community in the shops.
