And they are all tipped to be included in the first wave of the shipments. It has been said for months now that there might be a possible delay in the iPhone x, but thanks to the complexity of component manufacture forcing the timescale to go back.
iPhone X Design
Apple has decided to make the iPhone bigger and at the same time smaller. The biggest part is that it has a more expansive 5.8-inch edge to edge screen and the smaller part is that its size is actually than a plus-sized iPhone and it’s also lighter. This statement is made because the iPhone gives users a smaller width of 2.79 inches that is 70.9 mm and a shorter height of 5.65 inches dimension that is 143.6 mm and also it weighs much lighter 6.14 ounces that are 174 grams when it’s been compared with a plus phone.
Just like the previous year iPhone, the iPhone x is water resistant and waterproof. The phone can be 1m that is about 3.3 feet below water for 30 mins according to Apple’s test because it has an IP 67 rating.
The smartphone will be easier to hold with just one hand. You will still be able to upgrade your iPhone X without any problem even when you are turned off by the plus size. The amazing fact about the phone is that the back and front of the smartphone are now made up of glass covering the usual aluminum case.
The colors available for iPhone x are only two colors namely space gray and silver color. There is no gold, rose gold nor red this time around which is somehow disappointing.
This iPhone is the best iPhone ever produced by Apple, and it seems that iPhone x has taken all ideas of the formal best iPhone 6 and iPhone 7. The new device has taken that it has pervaded the iPhone age of Apple which is the laser focus thinking on the design. You will get on instantly with this iPhone if you are already an iPhone user and it has a bigger screen than all the other produced iPhone and yet it is the same time smaller than iPhone 7 plus. The screen of the iPhone x loves to suck up a fingerprint and the phone is also light as well.
On iPhone X Screen and Display
The new iPhone x smartphone is considered a super retina display or also known as an all screen display; It comes with perks that are not elegantly named. It uses 5.8 inch OLED display which is the first display used for an Apple iPhones since other iPhones uses LCD display. This OLED display is great enough to be on an iPhone.The
The iPhone x is the first Apple edge to edge display, making it lack home button at the bottom and bezel at the top of the smartphone, which replaces them with even more screen. The iPhone x also does not have curved screen sides like other Samsung phones. This goes well beyond Apples 1080p screen ceiling that has been made on their previous iPhones and this will crank the resolution of about 2436 × 1125 pixels when delivering a Quad HD+ photo.
The iPhone x has a superior contrast video playback and its display is built mainly for HDR. We are expecting to see a Netflix and an Amazon Instant Video onboard and the phone can also deliver an HDR10 content and also a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio on Dolby Vision.
When upgrading from an iPhone 6, the 3D touch has returned for more granular pressure sensitive touchscreen control. Which always gives rise to hidden shortcut menus on the phone and within apps.Apart from the phone essentiality, the new
Apart from the phone essentiality, the new iPhone x is one of the least bezelled phones in the market. And the lip on top of the phone 5.8-inch screen is the little thing that gets in the way of your operating new device and you with the effect rather stunning. The iPhone x is a completely different device compared to last’s year iPhone 7 device. The effect of the wider full screen is really impressing especially when you not used to the Samsung galaxy s8 which has a similar view and display.
There is a definite boost to be had with a sharper screen that makes the apps look better and web browsing a more amazing experience that’s the only reason the pixel count needs to be upgraded. And as expensive the apple phone is, it has to provide a much better screen.
No home button for iPhone x
There isn’t a physical home button for iPhone x smartphone, in other words, you won’t find any home button at all.the Apple iPhone x all screen design does not have any space for home button or the fingerprint sensor. The biggest change ever that long-time Apple iPhone users will experience is that they will have to get used to the new iPhone control because of the no home button and touch ID sensor.Flick an already opened app upward from the bottom, like it’s been thrown away is how
Flick an already opened app upward from the bottom, like it’s been thrown away is how you return to home screen without the home button. This is your new home button and once you are already authenticated with the face ID or a password you by-pass the lock screen the same way.
The multi-tasking menu can be viewed and used by dragging an app upward, then pause for a second and make sure you do not let go, it will then appear with other already opened apps. The shortcut can also be used to browse the watch face gallery on an Apple watch, and Users can also switch between apps when they swipe along the bottom edge of the screen.
The wake and sleep button have also been renamed the side button which is also matching the Apple’s watch. When it’s held for a second, it will summons Siri and double pressing it will also bring about Apple pay, which can be authenticated with a face ID.
Control center has been moved to a swipe down gesture since the swipe up from the bottom gesture is been occupied now with the return to home mechanic, all you have to do is to slide your finger from the top right aligned the battery icon and you can also view the new iOS 11 control center dash and swiping from the top of the left side of the screen will show the notification screen.
We will have to try out the new gesture mechanics to know if it has the same natural feeling, it could become a second nature, some users might undoubtedly complain at first as they always do. The Apple has likens all of the above swipes to slide to unlock, which everyone will miss.
Touch ID is been replaced with Face ID
Apple has made it easy to unlock your phone with the debut of a face ID without using the touch ID. Apple senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller stated at the company’s launch event that it is the future of how we unlock our smartphone.
The iPhone x uses its front-facing 7MP true depth camera and also it’s multiple sensors, which includes a sophisticated dot projector to mark or map your face. According to Apple, the unlocked camera also works in the dark because of the presence of an infrared camera.
Apple also states that the face ID won’t be spoofed by photos, unlike other phones that had issues with it.
Apple company also went as far as to work with The Hollywood mask makers to even prevent the most advanced and educated hackers from hacking or breaking into your new iPhone x mobile smartphone.
The senior vice president of Software Engineering Craig Federighi stated that No need to worry because it also works with sunglasses and can be thereby disabled in times of crisis. The face ID can, therefore, be disabled by holding in the side button for some second, that is if
you are about to be robbed of your iPhone x smartphone. Apple, therefore, claimed that there is 1 in 50,000 chance of letting people into your phone when using a touch ID and 1 in 1,000,000 chance of the FBI or a thief looking into your phone to unlock it when using a face ID.
There was a failed moment of the face ID’s debut during the Apple event, but it was explained that it was because of the failed attempts by the stage crew. During the live demo event, the I phone x smartphone tried to authenticate their faces when they were operating
and handling the iPhone x. The phone even had to request for a password from Federighi during the live event.
There is an extremely complex and interesting science behind the face ID. What amazed us the most is the fact that it adapts to the evolution of your face and it gets better in recognizing your 3D mug with time. Apple also made assurances that the face ID won’t mind the state of your present looks; either you grow bread, get your hair cut, or you look beautiful or handsome or even a bit younger. The face ID will still work.
The apple new method of taking in a load of different face angles, unlike when you have to position your finger on the sensor to set up a touch ID which makes much more sense. And Apple has repeatedly stated that this is one of the best ways to secure your iPhone x.
iPhone X dual lens camera
Apple has redesigned the new iPhone x camera, it still stick some of the same specs as last year’s iPhone though but now in every 2017 new iPhone model you can get 12MP cameras. You can also get iPhone x or iPhone 8 plus if you want a dual lens camera and of course you can only go for the iPhone x if you want an optical image stabilization on both the wide range and telephoto lens also.
The iPhone has OIS which helps to make up for hand shakiness during the taking of photo and the camera lens moves with the unstable hand. Also on the telephoto lens, you are now able to view your photos with 2× optical zoom can be blur-free also.
There is also a faster and larger iPhone x camera sensor, that helps in capturing deep pixels with either an improved f/2.4 aperture telephoto lens or a f/1,8 aperture wide-angle. It uses a machine learning to optimize for scenes before and after an image is taken. It also uses its new A11 bionic chip.
This year, Apple is introducing portrait lightning to the phone, unlike last year’s portrait which gave bokeh rich portrait that is background blur added. This portrait transforms light in a scene, applying lightning to a persons face like the person is been hit by lights in a studio or as far as changing a background. And the phone’s Instagram version, when using the iPhone default camera app, focuses smartly on the user’s face and not the entire picture or photo.
Capturing a slow motion in the iPhone x has changed but the iPhone x video recording in 4K has not changed. The compromising features of capturing slow-motion video at a lower resolution is now gone. You can now be able to record 240 frames per second in 1080p, and up from doing it in 720p.
Apples tricked out true depth camera on iPhone X
The iPhone x true depth camera is not just an ordinary selfie camera. The 7MP also put packs with more technology that has ever been experienced with a front facing camera array. The iPhone true depth camera adds a portrait mode to the selfie which leaves it no doubt the first iPhone ever made with that does not have a single fixed focus camera, which implies that your selfie can also enjoy and exhibit that stylish background blur.
The blur effect is supposed to be on your background and not your skin which makes the depth of field way better than the most popular android beauty mode on your android devices. Aside from the 7MP camera, a flood illuminator, microphone, infrared camera, proximity sensor, speaker, sophisticated face mapping dot projector and ambient light sensor are all been packed into the screen cut out at the top beside the camera 7MP.
The iPhone x true depth camera is known for portraying lightning selfies not just on the back camera but front facing also, between portrait selfie, animoji, and face ID also.
iPhone X Animojis
Apple has taken emoji to the next level by producing Animoji. By utilizing your true depth camera, to mirror or focus your facial expression on any animals or any creations just like the panda emoji.
A dozen of these animated emoji’s will be made available in Apple messages apps. When you track 50 of your facial muscle movements with the emoji, the camera will be able to bring them back to life. Amazing! Right? It is more than just an intrigued eyebrow looks. Apple is also working on snap chat using the front facing camera to bring it a new and a more realistically contoured mask to its photo sharing application. There are lots of wonderful potential behind this expression driven creations and its also so much fun.
The iPhone x iMessage app is exploded with lots of special effects and fun stickers. We also didn’t think we would be using a year ago and the same is being said of animoji, but if they seem and look a bit silly and meaningless for now why not come back in a year time and check us.
iPhone X specs.
With the new iPhone x, Apple has debuted its new A11 bionic chipset, and the smartphone will have a six core processor to power the AR technology and all the latest 3D games. You might be wondering what it means, it simply means that the six core iPhone x chip has four (4) efficiency cores which double the two efficiency cores on the four core iPhone 7 plus.
The other two cores are the high-performance core. Meanwhile, the new Apple iPhone x and also last year’s iPhone has two cores each which makes them 25% faster. And the iPhone x is smartly designed in such sway that you can even use all six at a spot for turbo boost.
Apple didn’t reveal the RAM spec of the iPhone x until someone opens an iPhone x smartphone that is when we will be able to know the RAM spec of the mobile device. My assumption on the report has suggested that the iPhone x comes with 3GB of RAM, the same amount that was back into the iPhone 7 plus by Apple.
iPhone x battery life, capacity, and its fast charging
And it will last 2 hours longer than the standard sized iPhone 7, was the headline Apple made during the iPhone x smartphone launch.
The interesting fact about iPhone x is that it will be the first Apple phone to have charging capacity including the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus. It amounts to an all-day battery life capacity, depending on the usage though. And it gives you a 50% charge in just 30 minutes. The user can easily pare down on battery consumption with low power mode in iOS 11 to make it last even much longer.
Previously, the fast charging capacity was limited to the newer iPad pro tablets and including its original 12.9-inch iPad pro tablet. You will also have to brace for the Lightning to USB C cable and adapter that is being sold separately. But the iPhone x comes with a normal Lightning cable. It also comes with an underpowered 5W charging adapter that is even smaller than the iPad charger.
iPhone X wireless charging with AirPower
Plugging your iPhone x smartphone can be as easy as dropping it on a wireless pad, that the new idea about iPhone x wireless charging feature. The wide shaped charging pad makes it easy for iPhone x users to recharge everything at once compared to when plugging each gadget with a lightning cable or even using the inductive Apple watch charger. Apple did not, however, lay out the cost of the hassle-free AirPower pad and we also know that it might not be launched until probably next year.
The wireless charging is not new, yes! It has been working on Android phones for several years but Apple has decided to debut a new AirPower charging pad. And the AirPower can also charge all new Apple’s products including Airports, an Apple watch, and the iPhone x smartphone. The pad uses USB C cable to power itself, just like Macbook pro and Apple Macbook.
The AirPower charger also requires new Apods case, the type that has wireless charging already built in it. When you already thinking that the new iPhone x is expensive they still want users to buy more accessories to it. Funny right? If you want to be convenient, you have to pay a high price and also back it up with a long wait. Belkin and Mophie are also making wireless chargers in the meantime, standard Qi chargers will work, most will simply charge a single device though.
Reality Augmented features in iPhone X.
Apple has a very bullish augmented feature reality, especially favoring AR over VR. The CEO Tim Crook also mentioned about augmented reality in most of Apple’s quarterly earnings calls.
iOS is provided for transforming your view and your world into a better playground virtual. With the availability of games that create digital objects on empty tables when looking through an iPad or iPhone and home furnishing giants, IKEA is creating a practical furniture measuring tools. And that just a good tip.
This also is why AR is going to play a very vital role on the new iPhone x smart Apple road. Though, any exclusive features it may get will be minimal, meanwhile other iPhones have the AR capabilities, also.
This Version of iOS.
With the new iPhone x, having so much more to play with on your screen, there is going to be some new changes made on the way the iOS works. The main display of the phone was not changed but the bottom of your phone, where the home button and the bezel use to stay has now been redesigned as the home button. Just a flick up from the bottom of your phone will get you back home.
The controls are now at the top right of the phone and require a little more dexterity to hit. You might want to use both hands for that though. In conclusion, it works well and is also intuitive and you should master how to balance the iPhone x on your hand.
In conclusion, iPhone X packs lots of unique features. It is said that a lot of people are already making plans for preordering the iPhone X because there has been a drop in the number of people pre-ordering the iPhone 8. Though, wait is not too long now before iPhone X final launch. If you have the money I think you should go ahead and buy it, that’s if you like it. Especially since there is no much difference in price between the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. In addition to this, Apple is bringing something different to the table compared to its predecessors, which is the iPhone X with no home button.
