Apple on Tuesday unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, the iPhone 8.
The device has a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 12-megawatt battery and wireless charging capabilities.
Apple also has added the ability to connect to a 4G LTE network, as well as a new 3G connectivity option, the Lightning-to-USB-C cable, and a new microphone jack.
While Apple has said it will continue to support its popular Apple Music streaming service, the company has made it easier for people to access music from other services and to download albums from Apple Music.
And, to help users download music, the Apple Store will now offer download-only content and a “download the album” option for purchases.
Apple will also expand the number of available music apps, including Apple Music, Spotify, iHeartRadio, Beats 1 and more.
The iPhone 8 comes with a 12.9-megabyte internal storage (up from 9.3-megabytes on the iPhone 7), an 8-megabit WiFi connection and Apple Pay, but it will cost $999.99 when it goes on sale in the U.S. and Canada on April 15.
The new iPhone will be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB configurations.
The smartphone will come in a $499.99 price point when it launches in the United States and Canada, but will remain free with a contract, a spokesperson said.
The phone will be released on April 17.
The latest iPhone 8 will be announced at an event on April 13.
A new version of the iPhone 9, which will be unveiled on April 21, will also include the ability for users to record video and use it in apps like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and more, as opposed to the current video only functionality.
The redesigned iPhone will feature a more seamless transition to the Apple Watch Series 3, which is expected to go on sale next month.
