The new Apple iPhone X is Here

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

Rumors of the coming iPhone X suggested some very notable changes, from screen technology to sticker price. Now that the iPhone X (pronounced “ten”) has been announced, here’s a look at the big new features.

A Bezel-less Display

You can’t not instantly notice that, as Apple VP Philip Schiller said, “It is all screen.” The glass screen goes from edge to edge, seamlessly butting up against the surgical stainless steel sides of the phone. And that screen is dubbed the Super Retina Display. It’s a 2436 x 1125 display with 458 ppi, giving it the highest pixel density ever used in an iPhone. More importantly, that display is an OLED, which means that contrast, color accuracy and color gamut will be greater than ever before. It also gives the iPhone X support for Dolby Vision and HDR10. Because OLED displays use less energy than an LED screen and can be built thinner, the iPhone X can be crafted lighter and will sport a longer-lasting battery. The iPhone X is also rated IP67 for water and dust-resistance, and will be available in either Space Gray or Silver. (more…)

The New Apple Watch Series 3: Cellular Built-In

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

The Apple Watch Series 3 is a game-changer

After a brief description of some of the features coming to watchOS, including some improved heart-monitoring functionality, Apple COO Jeff Williams made the first major announcement of the Apple Special Event. The new Apple Watch Series 3 was unveiled, and it was a big way to start the event: packed into the wrist-worn device is full cellular LTE functionality. That means that you can now perform most of the functions that your iPhone was handling (with the Apple Watch 1 or 2 simply mirroring and controlling those phone functions on its own screen), directly on the Apple Watch 3 itself. So you can make phone calls, video chat, or even stream music directly through the just the Apple Watch.

The New Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

There are two certainties every September: the leaves will start changing color, and Apple will have a major product announcement. And while they usually have a few major annoucments a year, the September “Apple Special Events” are the big ones, and where new iPhone reveals are done. As expected, the new Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were announced at today’s Special Event. While at first blush they look nearly identical to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, there are some significant physical differences to go with the internal tech upgrades.

Congratulations to the Fall 2017 Abt Star Employees!

Friday, September 1st, 2017

Every day, some 1,400 people help contribute to keeping Abt running like a well-oiled machine, whether it’s by sorting out product technical issues over the phone, delivering a customer’s new appliances up three flights of stairs, or making sure the doors and windows stay clean. Everyone here does their part, and it’s all part of being a family-owned and operated business. But in a such a large pool of great employees, there are always those who take that extra step when dealing with customers or their co-workers. That’s why twice a year, we choose four employees who demonstrate the Abt ideals to the nth degree, the ones who go above and beyond what is expected of them. Those are the Abt Star Employees. Please help us congratulate the Fall 2017 Abt Star Employees—Allison, Jose, Tracey, and Henry—and thank them for all the things they do for Abt.
