The new Apple iPhone X (pronounced "ten") is made of glass on the front and back and has wireless charging.

The device and Apple Power, the wireless charging dock that charges multiple things at once, were introduced Tuesday at an Apple event. The waterproof iPhone X doesn't include a home button — users will swipe up to access the phone, which also has facial recognition unlocking.

"Animoji" is part of the phone — it's a new feature on the phone that animates facial expressions.

Apple's iPhone X will be available for purchase on Oct. 27.

The iPhone 8 was also unveiled at the event, and it has a starting price of $699. Apple's new iPhones are designed for augmented reality.

The latest version of Apple Watch was unveiled as well. CEO Tim Cook called the device the best-selling watch in the world.

The waterproof Apple Watch has an even greater focus on fitness and health. For example, it flags users when it detects an elevated pulse.
