After months of anticipation, Apple has today revealed the all-new iPhone X which features a stunning all-screen design, with Face ID facial recognition and wireless charging, a device Apple says will “set the path for technology for the next decade”.
The iPhone X, pronounced “iPhone Ten”, features a 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED edge-to-edge display with 2436 x 1125 resolution and 458ppi, HDR support, Dolby Vision, HDR10, and True Tone. The Home Button has been removed from the iPhone X, with Apple adding a new Tap to Wake feature which works alongside Raise to Wake.
iPhone X features the new A11 Bionic chip with a special neural engine that helps power Face ID which unlocks the device by taking a 3D scan of the users face. Apple says Face ID can’t be spoofed by photographs, masks, and makeup, and changing your actual appearance with a hat or beard or makeup won’t prevent Face ID from working.
The new iPhone X will be available in 64GB and 256GB storage capacities, priced from $999 upwards. The iPhone X will be available to pre-order on October 27th, with the device arriving in-store and to the first wave of pre-order customers on November 3rd.
