Apple set to unveil the iPhone X, marking the tenth anniversary of the first-ever iPhone launched 10 years ago. This 5.8-inch display is so intelligent that it is going to respond to a tap, your voice, and even to a glance of an eye. Unlike Apple’s iPhone 7, it has all-glass enclosure.
Although the iPhone 4 also had glass-made front and back panels but these phones were found with durability issues as customers reported cracking of Handset by even a single drop. The iPhone X has the most durable glass than ever used by Apple in its iPhone, Apple claimed. Tim Cook calls the iPhone X a milestone for the company a decade after the first iPhone was released.
Apple’s new launch will be available in the market by September 22 with the exception of iPhone X which might release in the later months. The prices for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will be $699 and $799 respectively.
All three brands of the iPhone will offer wireless charging using the Qi standards. The glass-made back allows you to place your phone on a mat to charge it. Wireless charging works with standard Qi chargers.
Apple blamed the glitch on a lockout mechanism triggered by a staff-person during its on-stage demonstration. After failing to unlock the phone by using Face ID a number of times the iPhone simply required the passcode as per its designs.
“People were handling the device for stage demo ahead of time and didn’t realize Face ID was trying to authenticate their face,” an unnamed company representative told to Yahoo’s David Pogue. However, Apple’s iPhone X Face ID will be disabled after 5 failed attempts rather than two as per the company’s Face ID Developer notes.
