7 Things You Need To Know About The New iPhone X

September 13, 2017 by Samantha Peters

Apple finally unveiled the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, as well as new smartwatches and an Apple TV, at the company’s product launch on Tuesday. But they also dropped a huge bombshell by introducing an entirely unexpected new device: the iPhone X.

“The first iPhone revolutionized a decade of technology and changed the world in the process,” Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, said on stage. “Now, ten years later, it is only fitting that we are here in this place on this day to reveal a product that will set the path for technology for the next decade.”

Eager to get your hands on one? Here’s everything we know about the iPhone X so far.

1. It’s made of all glass.

The 5.8 inch phone will feature a “super-retina” display made entirely of glass. And if this sounds like an accident waiting to happen, don’t worry. Apple assures us that the glass is “the most durable ever” used in a smartphone.

2. It will feature Face ID.

While the phone will lack a home button, you’ll be saying hello to an ultra cool addition. To go to the home screen, you simply swipe up. And instead of using a fingerprint, the phone will scan and recognize your face to allow you full access to your device. How exactly does this futuristic method work? According to Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller, every time you look at your phone, the phone projects 30,000 invisible IR dots, which will then be captured by the camera.

“[It’s a] big step forward in the iPhone user experience,” Schiller said. We couldn’t agree more.

3. You’ll now be able to use “Animojis.”

To truly capture the feeling of, say, chipping a nail or finding your favorite shoes have gone on sale, the iPhone X will feature animated emojis (of pandas, robots, unicorns, and more) that you can create using your facial expressions. All you’ll need to do is pull a photo of yourself from your library or snap a selfie with the phone’s front-facing camera, and viola! The phone will work its emoji magic.

5. It comes in just two colors.

Unlike previous models, the iPhone X will only be available in silver and space gray. We can’t help but think the hues are quite fitting for the futuristic device.

4. It has a longer battery life.

Always worrying about your phone dying? The Iphone X is said to have a longer battery life than the iPhone 7, so you won’t have to constantly be reaching for a charger.

6. It will feature wireless charging.

In fact, you won’t need a cord at all.  The new phone will feature wireless charging to make your life so much easier. It’s based on Qi wireless charging, which is rumored to become a mainstay in public venues in the not so distant future.

7. You’ll have to wait until October to get it.

While the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will go on sale this month, the Iphone X won’t be available for pre-order until October 27 and will ship starting November 3. It’ll cost you a whopping $999, but let’s be honest, we know you’re still going to make the splurge.
