Apple launches iPhone X to mark 10th anniversary

Posted September 14, 2017

Though wireless charging is one of the key features of the new iPhone models, it won't support fast charging.

Touting the device as the next generation of mobile computing. It matters the most on the iPhone X. The facial recognition feature this fueled by this new processor builds a mathematical model of your face.

The iPhone X also seems to have hugely overshadowed the other new phones Apple introduced at the event, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

The delay in shipping of the iPhone X could hurt Apple's seasonally-strong fiscal first quarter as orders get pushed to the following quarter.

The high-end device showcases Apple's latest technologies, including an edge-to-edge OLED display, wireless charging, and facial recognition security.

Apple, which is trying to energise sales in China, could hit a wall selling the pricey new phones there. Add to this, the huge price point of the iPhone X, with which Apple is clearly targeting the iPhone loyalists. The new iPhones are have glass covers on the front and back. In fact, Face ID, apart from the mathematical calculations, also detects how attentive you are when looking at the phone.

The unveiling comes with Apple seeking to recapture the magic of the first iPhone X release in 2007 as it struggles to maintain market share.

Tech giant Apple was launching its iPhone X, or iPhone 10, on Tuesday (Sept 12), when an embarassing glitch occurred. Apple did it their way by perfecting the experience. Opt for the 256GB model instead, and you'll pay about $674 over the course of a year. Will consumers really want to lift their phone to their face every time they want to unlock their device or use Apple Pay? The iPhone 7 32GB will be available at Rs 49,000 and the 128GB has been priced at Rs 58,000 down from Rs 65,200.

Of the people across the world who voted on the poll around 35 percent said that they wanted the iPhone X. With the enhancement of the Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities in the new iPhones, and enabling cellular within the new Apple Watch Series 3, I very well could be.

Pre-orders for the iPhone X will begin on October 27 and will start shipping on November 3.
