It has been 10 glorious years since the launch of the first Apple iPhone. There were a few bumps and hiccups over the years but Apple continues to lead as the key innovator in the realm of smartphones. It is no surprise that their latest addition has all of the elements that Apple users practically begged for, a sleek glass and stainless steel design that is jammed-packed with the all of essentials and then some. The new iPhone X has rid itself of the fingerprint sensor as well as the home button. Since the home button was omitted, users will have to remember a couple of new but simple combinations to remember while operating certain features. For instance, if you want to use Siri you will need to hold the sleep button down for a few seconds. The sides of the iPhone X has the volume control, trusty sleep or wake button and a mute switch that we have all grown accustomed to. Apple has launched its new facial ID system within the iPhone X and users will rejoice at how convenient it is to unlock their smartphone. The front has no bezel, which is great for more screen space but that means that there still is no room or use for a headphone jack.
There are only a couple of colors to choose from, space grey and silver. The iPhone X’s overall display size is 5.8 inches with resolution so tight and crisp you won’t even believe how much the phone has improved itself from its previous models. The rear facing camera packs a mighty twelve megapixels and the front facing camera now comes with a special portrait mode because of the TrueDepth sensors. Photos and videos are now extremely high-res and wonderful. To calibrate the new Face ID system for the first time, you will be prompted to move your face in a complete circle few times before the system give you an okay. Your phone will now recognize you and unlock itself even if you are wearing sunglasses, just as long as they can pass infrared lighting. The iPhone X is currently operating on iOS 11 and navigating with the 3D Touch has become a much better experience that runs smooth like butter.
