Dubai: Following the launch of the brand new iPhone X at Apple’s event on Tuesday, we speak to regular Dirhams & Dollars co-host Scott Shuey, who is at the Steve Jobs Theatre in Cupertino, California, reporting on all happenings at the annual event.

We answer all your questions, and breakdown what we saw at the event, which included three new phones, an upgraded version of Apple TV, and a brand new Apple Watch.

Scott talks about the atmosphere at the event, what was said about the products’ roll out in the UAE, and what surprised him about the launch of Apple’s most highly anticipated phone in many years, the iPhone X.

Will this be the phone that sets Apple apart from its competitors again, and revives the fortunes of the iPhone brand? Or have the Samsungs and Sonys of the world snatched a slice of Apple’s share of the phone market that it will never win back?

And lastly, is Apple destined to become the first $1 trillion company with the launch of the new iPhone?
