Apple has made some startling omission of once iconic features, but has replaced them with purportedly better alternatives. Face ID is not only used for unlocking the phone, but also making payments and logging into banking apps. A possible explanation is that the iPhone 8 Plus could have a larger battery than the iPhone X, as the iPhone 8 Plus is a larger device despite it's smaller display compared to the iPhone X. That trounces the 6,564 from the Galaxy Note 8, and even beats the 7,287 from the Intel Core i5-7200U-based Dell XPS 13 from late 2016.

"The first iPhone revolutionized a decade of technology and changed the world in the process", said Apple CEO Tim Cook at a press event on Tuesday, September 12th. The assumption, according to William Blair analyst Anil Doradla, is consumers are more willing to "pay up" for a premium iPhone now due to their "increasing dependence on smartphones and the role they play" in our daily lives. You could have the iPhone X sequel phone as the device just called iPhone.

The iPhone X costs twice what the original iPhone did.

At the Apple inaugural launch at the company's new Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino, California yesterday, executive Phil Schiller addressed these concerns and explained that lining someone else's face in a front-facing camera isn't as easy as it sounds.

Apple has been struggling with production issues with the iPhone X - particularly new components like the face recognition system and the OLED screen which ironically has been manufactured by Samsung.

More than 894,000 Georgia Power and Electric Membership Corp. customers were in the dark Tuesday afternoon. CNBC reports further word from Long, who said , "Basically every house in the Keys was impacted".


There's a striking design differentiator between iPhone X and Apple's most recent models (iPhones 8 and 7); the design reinforces iPhone 4's stainless steel body with "the most durable glass ever fitted on a smartphone". Here's everything you need to know about the newest additions to the Apple product family. The back camera is getting an upgrade too.

Many users took to posting images of girls with and without makeup to show that the phone might find it hard to recognize them and hence unlock their phones.

All of these great features come at a price though, with the iPhone X costing £999 for the 64GB version and £1,149 for the 256GB model.

Apple hasn't refreshed the look and feel of its iPhone line since 2014, cutting into demand for what has always been its main moneymaker. The iPhone 11 will start to capture the interest of Apple watchers soon. The iPhone 8 Plus continues to feature a rear dual-camera system, while the iPhone 8 has a single rear camera.

It was unveiled at the Steve Jobs Theater and is a total reinvention of the iPhone.
