If you’ve just bought an iPhone X, you might be wondering what all you can do with this brand new, trendsetting iPhone? A lot. And we’re not talking about the new gestures and Face ID. There are a lot more interesting things about this new iPhone that you might not have discovered. Like Animoji, 4K video recording, super slow-mo, dark mode and more.
With Black Friday coming up, now is the perfect time to buy an iPhone as you would end up getting the most bang for your buck. To attract customers, most retailers usually end up offering heavy discounts and bundling gift cards with the devices.
Finally putting Face ID and Touch ID to the test in real world purchasing scenarios, it all comes down to preference.
iPhone X is the early adopter’s phone. You’re paying the price (literally and figuratively) to get the future’s phone, today. There are a lot of new ideas here. Some of them are intuitive and work reliably every time. But many don’t. The gesture-based interface can be unreliable sometimes. Face ID is magical but in some conditions, it loses a bit of the magic.
The iPhone X is Apple’s vision for the future. The next 10 years of development. It’s the device that shoulders a lot of weight, and one that, in most cases, can handle it. But that doesn’t mean everything is rainbows and unicorns with Apple’s first go at this major redesign.
You can see why Apple went for the ‘X’ name for the flagship 2017 iPhone – it represents a whole new generation of hardware design and is completely worthy of the ‘X’ (or ‘Ten’) moniker, released for the iPhone’s 10th anniversary. This isn’t just rhetoric, either. Having used the iPhone X full time for a number of days, it’s a genuinely jaw-dropping piece of high tech – there’s almost nothing it can’t do and it’s stunningly beautiful as well. With only a couple of caveats along the way, here’s why you might want to dip so deeply into your wallet after all.
iPhone X is an exercise in rewriting muscle memory of the last 10 years of iPhone usage. A side effect of an all screen design and the removal of the Home button is the gesture-based interface. And to make the gesture-based interface work, Apple had to move some of the iOS furniture around. This means accessing features you use dozens of times a day are now slightly different. Everything from Control Center to Siri to going back to the Home screen.
It has been quite a while since I have seen such a buzz around the launch of a new iPhone. The iPhone X launch has been greeted with long lines all over the world. So we were fortunate to get our hands on an iPhone X.
The first major point update to iOS 11 is here and you’re going to want to update. This ~300 MB update has the three things we care the most about – battery life improvements, stability improvements, and new emojis. Here’s everything that’s new in this update.
