The user interface is now optimized for 4K (including the screensavers...spared no expense), and the TV app is being expanded to include more sports and news content as well. It will run on WatchOS 4 and comes with better fitness tracking. Apple also pioneered an industry-first antenna design that uses the display itself as both a transmitting and receiving element for LTE and UMTS, while introducing a built-in eSIM that is over one-hundredth the size of a traditional SIM card, making over-the-air activation possible without compromising space. The iPhone 8, available in 64 GB to 256 GB sizes, will also be released on September 22, with upgrades to iOS 11 available on September 19.
